Providing the soundtrack for Edirol/Roland stand at Plaza 2010!

I wrote a track called Drop Beats Not Bombs in around 2007. It was the first breaks track i felt happy with & was intended for 2 gigs – One for the night itself where i had the honour of playing the opening set of the re-opening of the Que club, and one was for our 2nd Project X Presents.

I played the track at a few gigs and to a few people, and always had a really positive response, but at some point fairly soon after i decided the production was no-where near good enough, and shelved it.

A year or so later my good friend and hugely talented Vj Tea, aka The Lab Visuals asked to hear some of my tracks. His response was so inspiring i decided to play them out to a few producers & friends at those after event chill sessions. Suffice to gave me the drive to drop what i was doing and get the tracks finished and produced. At the time i was doing so many events and gigs, there was no time for music making, so they moved to the to do pile.

Then this year T asked if he could use the track for his Edirol Vj demos at the annual Plasa event. He would be doing 8 sessions for each day of the 4 days, and like last year, wanted a mix he could show his skills and the new equipment off with. I made a little 10 minute mix, with an intro, my drop beats track, and a bassbin twins track, and sent it off.

Within a day Tea was reporting various positive feedback comments about the track and by day 3 it had been picked up by one of the guys who demo’s all of the Roland  music equipment, who had asked to use it for each of his upcoming tours!

Suffice to say i’ve decided to grab all the stems and get it sounding as great as i can. I know a lot more about production and arrangement now so hopefully i can really turn into a peak time floor slayer. It uses a few samples so i doubt whether i could release this version, but plan on getting a couple of vocalists in to add some copyright free vocals over the top.

Til then however Tea has done this brilliant vj mix to the track. There are apparently a few holes in it as he was using a load more kit, but it still rocks imo. The audio mix has also rendered a little bass heavy, but hope you enjoy it.
