Thank you Richie, especially for going through the back catalog to see the development.
You too Spazo.
Babar, you know where I'm coming from with all this, i appreciate that.
and thank you to all for listening and commenting. simpleone is exactly right, i was a little out of line for the grammar comment, but I was trying to make a point. he is assuming I am not a musician, and have had no musical training. not true. I grew up learning the violin, a little piano, and finally guitar by the time i was 13, and still play. I'm no Richie Issacs, but I play the guitar. Once I discovered sample art, i found an entirely new way of putting music together. it is a different approach to music.

it's when art inspires this kind of response that i know i am doing something right. there is room for us all in the playground. i woke up this morning inspired to listen to the music of all commentators. i respect and admire that you put your money where your mouth is!

read you recently it takes about 10000 hours of practice to really become good at it.... Maybe no of us have the time but this dude is good at what he do

listen to the back catalog before whining about 1 tune i sez
still Thom: I'm not sure this is one of your better tunes. I listened 2x.. I'e heard better stuff eh

As one who plays instruments and works with midi/digital I can say that the skills required for both take many years to perfect.

Nicely arranged again ,as I said below I have (actually)gone thru all your songs (not any easy task!) and HAVE seen you develop as an artist.
I play guitar, I reassemble notes that others before me have named yet I make them my own, you have done the same with samples so kudos to you and boo to the others for making me break my rule of not commenting on others comments but enough is enough. music is the end product, not the assembled parts.
Period.

Well, normally I would stay out of a pissing match like this, but this is an interesting one. So, for starters, the grammar comment is a little out of bounds. This is a music review site, not an Book Authors site. I think pasthors points are well taken. Sometimes it's hard to work and hone a craft such as music for years and then be compared to artist just using loops and samples. Now with that said, I see this as art for sure, and not bad art at that. But, it's more like a DJ. There is for sure and ART to that, however, not a musician. Maybe these are some thoughts to think on.

plus pasthor, i don't use the type of software that you are implying i use. and you have no clue what my history of musical theory is. i personally don't give a #@&%! what software YOU have that does what. if you are going to take the time to write something about something you can't write about, use better grammar at the very least. it's offensive to those of us who spent years studying English.

well pasthor, don't waste your time listening to it then. music has changed, and sample art is a different approach to composition. this was not "made by software," it was made by me, with digital software. like babar said, it is just a tool. Forgive me if I am not making each note with an instrument - i don't have such an arsenal available - but that requires professional studio equipment. I do the best i can with what I have to work with. i am not a band. so basically, you wasted a lot of time writing your 'review' - especially when there is no review to write.

Hmm, was talking about your music today and have discovered if you go waaaay back and proceed thru your catalog of songs you can hear you develop and refine Your Sound, to me personally you just bet better and better, what was once quirky sounding has become something I look forward to. smething 'expected' but yet not.
This is no exception, a well chosen collection of samples that become one song.
Mint, dude, a VERY organised sound indeed...

pasthor...in composing it's not what you use but how you use it. Software is just a tool.

Is your fingers tweaking the oscilatorpots or who is playing... this is music wich i cant review when the phnx-studio' is a laptop with 5 parameterbuttons and a 'start groovegenerating' button. If ya reveal what work u actually do to make this it will get a review. I have software wick plays for 100 hours without repeting any of the diffs or doing same loop 2 times.. it needs presets, and playbutton, and i will not review electronica thats made by software. sorry but its not fair to all of the 'analogue' humans who uses years to learn musictheory and physic finger and bodyskills.
