netizencain: Wish I could... but I'm not linking to FB for that. Best of luck though.
KrispyKritter: Exposure to the huge catalog that is Frank Zappa is an college education in musical creativity
Ishkur: Thought it was pedestrian and uninspiring. Did you have access to the original masters when making this remix? Because it sounds like you didn't.Sounds like what you did was take a sample of the original track and lay a punchy electro kick over it but not enough attention paid to sequencing -- the kick and the claps are not sync'd and are giving off an awful "clicking" sound (you really want a tighter, punchier beat if you're going for the post-electro schtick). The drum programming is just all sorts of wrong and doesn't work at all: Either change the levels or use a different sample (perhaps the intro of the track, where there is no drum track)To be fair, the original is not a very good track to begin with either. I suppose the only saving grace is the farting bassline, but it's the wrong kind of funk for a track like this. And I suppose the builds are alright if unnecessary since there's nothing going on in the track to build to, making the whole piece feel anticlimactic. I wouldn't call this Nu Disco.Still, for a 14 year old, it's not the worst music in the world. He has promise -- tell him to keep it up. I didn't listen to every mix in the contest, but the guy in 1st place definitely deserves to be there./just being honest//that's what I do
Valeriyance: Are you the Ishkur that made that wonderful, "Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music" site? If so I'd like to thank you. Me and my lady have had hours and hours of fun on it. I also like to send it to people who think it all sounds alike.

Valeriyance: Kick ass. I hope when you complete it that you will kill whomever you have to kill to get it greened on Fark. Or is there a newsletter of yours I can subscribe too as I like the cut of your jib?
NoseBrain: Whatever happened to actually making music?
