We want more.

Quick middle of the week post, another Glitch Hop post, because I feel like we want more good Glitch Hop tracks since my last post. Here are some unavoidable classic tracks as well as new cool discoveries. Is it me or there are a lot of Glitch Hop producers located in Australia at the moment? You have my support. Enjoy!

P.s. Stay tuned, I will test drive iMaschine app on iPhone this week-end while going camping in the woods and I might actually attempt to post my review on this blog from the woods if there is 3G.

Glitch Hop?!

I’ve been listening to that style of electronic music for a little while now, I dig it. And hey, even Beatport store added a new category for it! The only differences I can see between Glitch Hop and Dubstep is the beat, probably inspired from hip hop or breakbeat and there are more breaks in general in the arrangements… well let me know your opinion about it! I personally think it’s a very creative style of music. Also, a good place to discover good Glitch Hop producers would be to listen to that internet radio http://glitch.fm/

I would like to apologize, I usually try to post free downloadable tracks, but good glitch hop tracks are tough to find, feel free to send me good material!

Robots and Chiptunes Friday!

It’s Friday and I feel like posting a bunch of free to download tracks with vocoding robot voices and chiptunes! Here I discovered new producers and remixers which I really liked: Daze, I’ve first heard his music in Rad Balls video game soundtrack, he is a true value. Dubmood with his remix of one of my favourite band of all time, Kraftwerk, well done. Henry Homesweet, very good chip tune artist with a cool Daft Punk remix. Anamanaguchi, well, another very good chip tune artist. And I slipped one of my unreleased remix I did last year, it’s a bit outdated, but hey, listen to it and let me know what you think :)

I hope you have a good one!

Zombies, run!

I just tried that app for iPhone, it’s called ¨Zombies, run!¨ an ultra immersive running game and audio adventure. I’ve played with it for 20 minutes or so while jogging in the park by night and it was really fun, I have to admit that it added some creepy ambiences to my work out! My only little complaint  would be that sometimes, there is a robot voice that sounds like text to speech playing to tell you what to do during the mission, and I could’t hear it properly because it was playing at the same time than my playlist. Outside of that issue, I really appreciate that playlist feature, it’s a nice addition to the game. Oh and also the zombie indicator sound is a cool stress factor that enhance your jogging performance!

Bottom line: I will continue to play in my next jogging session, I recommend it! :).

Here are some links:

IMPORTANT: You will need some music, because it’s using your playlist throughout the game, so here is (of course hehehe) a track of Zombie Nation, that I just discovered today even if it’s been out for a while now. The soundcloud download link doesn’t work anymore, because of too many downloads I suspect, but here is another track that I discovered as well while doing some zombie music searching, this young man called Zombie Blood Party, is giving his good remixes for free. Enjoy!
