New track - 'Nexus of Doubt' - psy/tech/trance

Caustic Song file (optional): 

First one for a while.

I've been busy so everything is taking twice as long (more like 3 times).

Psy/Goa/Tech/Trance if you ask me laugh

First published tune from my Nexus 9 - a quality piece of kit, imo.

I think that might be one of you most commercial tracks yet, I really like it! The more traditional orchestration you've done would allow for a remix with a 4 to the floor beat, you'd have a right little floor filler!

Changing my SC name back to

Changing my SC name back to 'Excel Monkey' straight after posting my new tune under my old SC name seems to have confused the SSC forums...

all made from collections of free one shot samples from packs around the web. I still recommend Rhythmlab for tech sounds.

wow that is thick and juicy

wow that is thick and juicy and nifty little animations to hold it all together....  Makes me think of a classic video arcade with all the flashy lights and colors and the noise of a bunch of game machines running at the same time.

Nice work on this, James

So I've added nothing to this

So I've added nothing to this, just cleared all the clever automation and rearranged all the patterns, but written nothing new, no tracks, notes, drum patterns nuffink.

So, enjoy... Or something.

Nexus of Doubt (indecisive mix)

This is a fantastic tune

This is a fantastic tune James, loads going on but held together seamlessly. Not a million miles away from Jilted Generation era Prodigy imo.

Didn't previously notice the attatched file! Excellent! It's in good hands...but, with a sinister mind.

Thanks - I think I understand

Thanks - I think I understand The Prodigy references too, Jilted is the only album I've ever liked and I think I've picked up on that marriage between rave, trance and techno they pulled off so well on that CD smiley
