PsychNerD – Voyager 1

SOS Vol.1This downtempo track was my contribution to the “Sound Of SceneSat Volume 1” compilation from SceneSat Radio. This track was inspired by the classical ambient dub tracks I love and used to listen a lot in the 90s. With the time it became one of my favourites. Most of the sound sources are hardware, the G2X providing the background noise and ambiance, the Virus for the CS80’ish sound, pads from the Wavestation, arpeggios from the DX11 (still can get usefull stuff out of this one too), even a little guitar in the break. Sometimes everything just fall right into place, making a perfect blend out of simplicity.

Bassbomb – StarDust Intro (PsychNerD 8LSB Remake)

 

stardust

Don’t get it wrong! this is is meant to be sequenced exactly like the original. If you wanted to get those missing 8 least significant bits (LSBs) to get the full 16 thing and to make it sound the way you may think it was, here it is!. Trying to identify the exact original sample and do it exactly like the old one without loosing all the 8 bit and clipping character is the key… Go check the original for a little comparison!

Hope you’ll enjoy this classic remake.

Hackfest 2012

Once again in 2012 the Hackfest Crew were kind enough to invite me again as a DJ for their November event. I really appreciate this event for different reasons, first I’m an IT security specialist by day so this my community, these are the friends and people I work with. Next, because hacking games and demoscene events (two interest that I hope you realized I have) are having a lot in common. Finally because those guys and gals simply enjoy the same music that I do.

They are always giving me “carte blanche” and this year I performed different DJ Sets : I began nicely with Liquid Dubstep, followed by Electro House, PsyTrance music, and rounded up everything with a nice downtempo set. In between, I decided this year to bring my computer, NI Maschine, the Virus and the G2X to perform about 1 hour of my music live. A couple of new tracks were made exclusively for this, even the Hackfest Intro theme was a Maschine remix project prepared for this occasion.

PsychNerD – Level 2 : Electro House

SceneSatThis time, it’s going to be all about house music! I prepared a pretty mad SceneSat playlist that I’ll be mixing for you with a tiny little dose of chatter 🙂 All about the music! Spread the word and be there!
If you have any requests, I can still add some into the mix if you write them to me in the SceneSat forums. Sorry, no live requests, you’ll have plenty of time to play with the requester right after the show 🙂
