  1. Hi there Ananda! I am no expert by any means, but I don't think your mixes are bad or really all that uneven. Maybe the lead melodies could be boosted a bit, but I think it's the fact that you chose a very clean arrangement that makes it sound thin and so the high end doesn't mask much below it. I might suggest increasing the volume of your closed hats (on the 16ths) by at least 2-3 db and perhaps the open hat as well by 1-2 db.
  2. Is this blocked? http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x303hg4 In any case it's Deodato - Keep on Movin', a crazy good funky disco track from 1982 with a few electronic elements. I'd be surprised if anyone here has not heard it before.
  3. Is this pop music? This has been on repeat in my head and ears all weekend.
  4. Would someone do me a favor? I don't want to know anything about this album until it arrives so I am requesting that someone purchase this album for me. I will send enough money to purchase 2 copies, one for me and one for yourself. PM me if you are interested.
  5. I would be lying if I said I wasn't wondering where you've been Sandinasia. Hope is all going well with you.
  6. Man With No Name - Deep Trouble In Outer Space Somehow I never heard this track before.
  7. All over this album from 1974! Not a 303 specifically, but acid sounds nonetheless.
  8. My plan is to buy the new RA album, without ever looking at the cover or listening to the samples. I just want it to show up one day when I come home from work and then I plan to have a "special" evening with it. Also will keep my eye on Crossing Mind. I was not a big fan of the last album, but more often than not I enjoy Stephane's compilation tracks.
  9. With escalators it's not that I am afraid of heights, but I can get vertigo pretty easily. Something about how my body is moving at an angle and yet I'm standing up right. We have several subway stations here in Buffalo where you have to go down at least 2-3 stories through escalators (or stairs in my case). http://www.buffalonews.com/storyimage/BN/20160116/LIFE/160119425/EP/1/3/EP-160119425.jpg My body's natural tendency is to lean forward to stay parallel to the incline. At least if I take the stairs my body can focus on there being the stairs to step down on to.
  10. I have an irrational fear of escalators.
  11. Edited the first post to include a poll. I am still loving this album so much. While it's definitely far from being the most psychedelic stuff being made right now, it's not even Ali's most psychedelic stuff, I have yet to grow tired of the aesthetic/style.
  12. The soundtracks to the Myst series of adventure/puzzle games. They are such an interesting blend between strange, eery electronic pads, acoustic percussion, and light effects.
  13. Yea, I mean pop music doesn't have intros, developing ideas, or even good production values. Just check it out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IIspaicSnY Nhjo just needs a major label backing him.
  14. Alice Through The Looking Glass It was, well, umm, not good. There's nothing curious about this wonderland.
  15. Nice! I will have to give this a full listen when I find the time.
  16. Oh I don't know. The secret of the universe perhaps? Or maybe why the chicken crossed the road, or which come first, the leggings or the over the knee socks? In all seriousness, that all makes a lot of sense. Thanks!
  17. Nice tips Imba! I never really thought much about the tune of the kick seeing as how in my brain kicks were always enharmonic, but I guess that's not entirely true. To add to this, I have heard that you generally want your kick and your bass line to sit in their own frequency range separate from each other as much as possible otherwise they end up bleeding together and there is not good clarity. For instance, you might want your kick to come down to about 60Hz and place an emphasis there with a lengthy decay, while your bass line dances above/below on the off beats. Does that sound lik
