Happy New Year, Some Funky Electro

US2K Review: This mix begins immediately with a funky variation on the four on the floor drum pattern. There is a bass drum, accent snare and closed hat but what makes the arrangement particularly interesting is an instrument in the lower range playing a syncopated bass-line melody, which is difficult to identify. It could easily be tuned low toms or a percussive sub-bass instrument of some type. This groove continues for four seconds with an occasional "Get It" vox to add some foot tapping excitement to the mix.

Around the four seconds position, there is short bridge where the bass drum is dropped from the mix for a split second before a new brassy sounding vox "One Up is added to every fourth beat and a backwards orchestral crash to double the accent clap is slowly fading in, to drive things even harder in a "disco electro funk kind of way", making the mix possibly danceable to a house fan.

The mix continues to the nineteen seconds position at which point the listener is given a real surprise with a drum fill on snares then toms accompanied by a brass stab like you would hear during an intense scene in the 80s series Magnum PI (subsequent mentions will be referred to as "Magnum PI moment"), and some bells. This is a very original twist to the mix and works surprisingly well. Immediately afterwards the main groove returns for a short whilst before yet another short break/bridge takes place at the thirty five seconds position, after which a new bass instrument playing a single note on alternate beats to the accent clap is faded in along with some higher tom drums (main groove and theme for the mix).

The mix progresses to the first major section in this mix after 50 seconds of play. This bridge begins with the departure of the bass drum, which is abrupt but seems to work, after which point a new female "Groover" vocal is faded in. This particular fade adds some serious intensity and anticipation for the listener. Something else subtle change during this bridge is the fact the fairly new bass line changes its pattern every four beats to play a different note, implying a more sophisticated chord progression than earlier in the mix.

Around the one minute seventeen seconds play position the bridge comes to an end with a "whoosh" sound, some bells and a snare roll. The bass line playing chord roots leaves the mix along with the "Groover" vocal and an arrangement more like the introduction remains, but with one major difference a syncopated hi tom drum pattern right of the stereo-field and a new vocal "Yeah" which heard for every four "One Up" vox. The outcome is fairly catchy despite the lack of a tuneful melody, relying purely on an intelligent rhythm. The mix continues to a short bridge at the one minute thirty-seven seconds position, which is announced by a sudden drop of the bass drum and ends with a very low down in the mix effect that almost sounds like a clucking chicken.

After the end of the major bridge the main groove/theme returns, this time with the sound effect mentioned used to periodically add interest up to the one fifty seconds position. Half a second later there is another "Magnum PI moment", then a different "thinned down" version of the main groove returns. The main differences are the accent snare has been changed for a softer one which is less clap-like in nature, no reversed orchestral crash or bass, only one vocal remaining "Get it", removal of the hi toms and some hi-hats plus the addition of a low octave left right panning electro acid click. The new theme continues to the two minute five seconds position before the last break/bridge in the mix takes place. The bass drum leaves the arrangement for a short moment, there is a breathy "Yes" vox and then what sounds like either hot steam or frying bacon (if the later is the case that is seriously innovative and in good humour especially if that is a chicken earlier in the mix) is used to add intensity and to ready the listener for the mix concluding finale.

The finale begins a succession of vox and instruments being faded back in, first the reverse orchestral crash, then the female "Groover" vocal, and lastly the bass line. Despite the fact instruments are faded in, to enhance addition to the mix the bass drum is removed for a split second before each arrives. Once a new conclusion arrangement and theme has been established the mix continues to progress to the two minute fifty three seconds position where the "Yes" vocal returns and successive layers of tribal percussion are added to work the mix into a very catchy finale frenzy.

Around the three minute 18 seconds position the end to the mix begins with the bass line being changed to sound more mechanical, synthetic and electronic in nature before a flanged star trek teleporter sound is faded in as the rest of the mix is faded out.

At the very end of the mix, around the three minute forty-one seconds position, for a very brief moment the sound of a crowded restaurant or dining room are heard, and all in all the ending is smooth, sophisticated and original.

My final evaluation of this mix consists of the following scores, general musical skill (9/10), catchiness (8/10), wide audience appeal (7/10), use of arrangement and melody changes to add interest (8/10), use of sound effects and drum fills to add interest or announce changes (10/10), studio engineering including reverb, equalisation, delay, stereo panning mixing and general mastering (9/10). My final overall score for this mix is 8 out of 10, although it has narrower audience appeal, funky house and retro electro fans will love it( may even dance) , and listening to it again has made me like it more, and I am sure a skilled dj could put this very good funky mix it into a house/dance/electro set.

US2K Review: This seems to be some sort of trance/electro/dubstep hybrid of which there are many now. It is of a standard that is 10 out of 10 like many new mixes submitted to this site now. No further review is required for this mix, as the artist just requires promotion.

Some Jazz Funk, Happy New Year

US2K Review: This mix begins instantly with a funky full drum kit swinging four on the four rhythm, bass instrument of some type and "twiddly" up and down scales on an electronic piano (something like a rhodes) followed by lower octave piano chords. At this point the mix has reached its first main groove and hook (main groove 1/hook 1) and is really foot tapping, funky and addictive to listen to. Thirty five seconds into the mix some brass licks and stabs enter the mix, first on the right-hand side of the stereo-field and then on the left, whilst some happy sounding strings, and ethnic drums (played live maybe) are sneaked into the arrangement. Interesting variations on these musical ideas, with an occasional drum fill continue up to the one minute, five seconds position.

After this point a bridge section is encountered. This consists of a bass drum and electronic piano section. After a few thumps the drum playing is switched to a snare with some delay applied to it, before all drums leave the mix to allow the piano to solo another "twiddly" scale (littered with decorations and accidentals) for a short moment creating a super jazz feel. The last note of the down scale is used in the role of a a crash/cymbal to re-introduce main groove 1 at the one twenty two seconds position. The groove is not identical though partly because the piano melody is different from earlier, more rhythmic and lead-like in nature.

After a drum roll and a cymbal crash the brass returns to answer the piano sections for a short moment. There is first a higher pitched trombone (sounding like a squeaky door) like slide sound on the left stereo side before a punchy/funky saxophone melody on the right sound really gives the listener a treat. Progressing further, after a crash the chord part of the piano and bass instrument leaves the arrangement and the lead parts of the piano and some further funky saxophone melodies take it in turns to solo.

At the two minute seven seconds mix position, one last repeat of this idea, the left hand side trombone and a cymbal announce the removal of all rhythmic elements except the ethnic drums. At this point the piano is first used to play some decorative scales, before its role is changed to rhythm chords. At the same time the brass on the right side has its note sequence changed to something which resembles a trill often heard in classical music and of course coming from song birds. Around the two minute thirty two seconds position the instruments are played with more energy and intensity, giving the listener expectation of something very exciting. The listener is not disappointed either, all instruments leave the mix except the piano before an atmosphere spoken vocal and the brass is used as a drum roll to announce a "totally danceable" latin groove.

The latin theme consists of seriously catchy melody line on the piano which is now leading, and the previously heard brass instruments are used to simply accent this instrument. The bass drum does not join the arrangement immediately to allow the listener more time to appreciate the new musical theme.

A slow whoosh sound, drum roll and the left hand side trombone with its pitch altered is used to re-introduce the bass drum. The bass drum does not return on its own though, there is a subtle vox added at the time, which seems to drive the mix and add further excitement.

The latin theme continues for a further thirty seconds with added brass sections and crashes to accent or add freshness to the mix. Then there is a finale "goodbye" scale played on the piano before the mix is faded out via a different drum pattern. The last “outro” groove is less funky and more electro sounding with metallic and synthetic percussion sounds. The mix finally reaches silence after four minutes nineteen seconds of play.

My final evaluation of this mix comprises the following: catchiness 9/10 , wide audience appeal (9/10), demonstration of general musical skill (10/10), use of drum rolls, crashes and sound effects to announce changes or add interest (9/10), Sound engineering, mastering and fx including equalisation, delay, reverb panning etc. (9/10), Overall final score (9/10). I think had there been more use of the latin theme this mix would score 10/10, but this mix is still an excellent jazz funk record taht is well worth a listen.

Merry Christmas

US2K Review: This minimal techno/electro mix begins with percussive sounds in the form of chimes, a deep ticking, and electronic beeps. Using this theme an atmospheric collage of sound is build up. A sound which could be a release of steam or a reverse cymbal is used to introduce some more usual instrument sounds around the 29 seconds position. At this point the ticking sound gives way to a clap/snare and a cymbal; however this is not the end of the custom percussion.

Around the 32 seconds mark a pitched metal strike sound is used in preference to a crash to announce the start of the main groove and musical idea. First there are some short beeps and some squelchy acid noises used introduce the drum pattern, and bass line. Buy wait on analysis the bass drum may be a low tom, plastic tub, or something else being hit, I will never know. Anyway the "bass drum" aided by some conventional clap/snares and hi hats (I am confident they are standard) drives another soundscape of bleeps, car horns, metal chings and other sound effects positioned within the drum pattern and around the stereo-field so they syncopate in an addictive manner. The result is a hook with no melody but never the less catchy and fascinating. This theme is kept interesting with the help of some intelligent percussion fills right up to the first major bridge at the one minute five seconds position, which is announced by yet another unexpected sound a whistley sound.

At the start of the bridge the bass drums, snares and some of the percussion depart, and the bass line is turned down.

The end result for the bridge section is sound effects, and an alternative synth line right of the stereo-field to replace the horns heard earlier. The bass line is faded back in towards the end of the bridge and a sound effect (maybe a reverse snare) is used to announce the return of the main drum groove to work the listener towards the conclusion. This time there are some subtle vox or animal sounds added to the soundscape to create another addictive, atmospheric and fascinating theme. Listener interest is maintained right up to the one minute fifty three seconds position with the use of percussive fills and other subtle variations.

After one fifty three seconds, the conclusion begins with a bell sound playing a looped melody line, then some heavily fx treated speech and a laugh is used to announce the departure of the main groove. The bell synth line resumes whilst first the bass drum leaves the mix, and then the rest of the percussion is flanged, changing its pitch before it is also faded out to silence along with the synth bell line, but not before the two themes have formed a new catchy hook as a resulting of answering each other.

My final evaluation is formed from the following factors, Musical structure 8 /10, General musical skill 10/10, wide audience appeal 7/10, catchiness 9/10, Use of fills and variation 10/10, Use of mastering such as equalisation, reverb, delay, compression, and stereo-positioning 8/10 , originality bonus 10/10. My final score is now 8 out of 10 after listening to this mix after all this time, I am not sure how this would go down in a club but it is well worth a listen to all types of techno and old skool electro fans , and djs could mix it in somewhere too if they use their imagination.

US2K Review: No review yet but I have given John the respect he deserves and had another listen to this mix. Very intelligent indeed, I cannot be sure but it was not just the lap top speakers for the tinnyness, and would explain Max' s comments of dis-jointed. John has possibly got some of my poorer material from the past and remixed it, hence the title 'Parellel World'. If that is the case where he got it I am very puzzled about, I wonder if another John L is winding me up lol It has been a long windup and also how come the realistic international email address? The mix is very good but the provisional score stays for now.

US2K Review: This is excellent funky electro house. I love the stalker in the house concept. I think that this a must for Halloween dj sets! In 2013 I will be making a video for Halloween of that year. This is a quality record and Jay knows it is so no review is requested.
