Backscatter

Drum & bass

▶ PLAY - DOWNLOAD

Description

This is an improved version of one of my older songs, Backscatter which was released about 3 years ago. So, once again I am at a point where I have learned some new pretty important things about mastering music which means most of my older music is pretty bad because they are badly mastered. Additionally, there are some really bad issues in some of my old songs including Backscatter which is the reason I am fixing this one.

The idea with this song was to use a kind of a neutral scale between major and minor, which is done mainly by not playing the third note of the scale. The song also contains a very short reference to Dusk Horizon from the Unreal soundtrack, which was the inspiration for this song and gave the idea to use this scale.

This is an improved version of one of my older drum and bass songs, Perpetual which was released about 3 years ago.

Additionally, there are some really bad issues in some of my old songs including Perpetual which is the reason I am fixing this one. The biggest difference you can hear in this version is that it has way less low pass filtering which makes the song sound less muffled.

Aphorise Delirium

Horror

Description

This song is very experimental with a goal to explore some different horror styles. The song contains about 6 distinct sounding parts where none of the parts are repeated a second time and in a way this creates kind of a story progression that the song follows.

The beginning of the song sounds a lot like my previous horror song, Derelict Sepulchre, and later in the song I even managed to mix in some drum and bass influence. The main focus with the song was in complex percussion and also in sound design to create some new interesting instruments.

Doom Eternal Ancient Gods 2 Credits Theme remix

Drum & bass

▶ PLAY - DOWNLOAD

Description

A drum and bass remix/cover of the Doom Eternal Ancient Gods 2 Credits Theme, original by David Levy. This song doesn't actually use anything from the original song as everything is recreated from scratch, so the song is more of a cover instead of a remix.

This song was fully created with the Renoise DAW using only samples and Renoise's internal filters. So rather impressively no external VSTs were used. Overall I am incredibly happy with the final result although I still think some instruments could sound even better. But at this point I am very much done with this song as I already spent a vast amount of time mixing it and perfecting some very small details.

HL song

Half-Life themed song - industrial

▶ PLAY - DOWNLOAD

Description

This is the vocal version of HL song that includes voice lines and some other sound samples from Half-Life. The style of this song gets some inspiration from Half-Life 1 and 2 game soundtracks and the bassline at the very end is also a direct reference to one song from Half-Life 2.

For some reason I didn't have the same level of enthusiasm when creating this song as I have usually had but still I think this song turned out great, better than some of my other recent songs. I even found the strength to do the mastering very well. As an interesting detail, this song uses the super locrian scale which is more rarely used in songs compared to the few very common scales.

Description

This song is something quite different (and horrifying) compared to my usual stuff although it does heavily focus on sound design that I have done a lot in my other songs. Another heavy focus is on the percussion which is also one of the main focuses in all my other songs. So in the end, even though the genre is something completely different, the focuses are still the same. This time I just wanted to try something very different and I quite like how it turned out. I do have some plans to create some more horror themed music at some point.

Rajaton game OST

Description

This is the soundtrack for the web browser game Rajaton which you can play on your web browser right here: Rajaton

This song is a combination of all the songs that can be heard in the game which include two exploration songs, two actions songs and the menu music. This music attempts to combine some retro game music elements from the tracker music era with some modern sound design. The action parts are less retro and a combination of industrial metal and drum and bass.

There's also a total of 8 melody references to game music from 5 other games and to be totally fair, almost all melodies in this song are borrowed from these other games. 5 of the references are from 4 old finnish indie games and the rest are from the DOOM 2016 soundtrack.

The references are as follows:
0:28 The Ultimate Tapan Kaikki - Panda
1:13 Tapan Kaikki 4: Bloodshed - Default 1
2:19 DOOM 2016 - Harbinger
2:38 Phobia II - MENU
3:17 Juha Rantala - Moonfly [Wings OST]
3:57 Welli - V-fighters landing [Wings OST]
4:54 DOOM 2016 - Vega Core
5:10 DOOM 2016 - BFG Division

Description

This song is melodic drum and bass that focuses a bit more on drums and the overall sound while the melodies are relatively simple. Some very glitchy parts are thrown into the mix and the song uses the Mixolydian scale to make things interesting. The Mixolydian scale is very close to the major scale but is generally very rarely used in songs even though it sounds great.

This is a remastered and slightly remixed version of my older song Shun Real. Some of the more boring parts were enhanced to make the song overall more interesting. A lot of the sound design was also redone to have the song sound cleaner and to make some smaller details stand out better.

Dark Io

Drum & bass

Description

This is a version of the song Bright Io. Because I wasn't entirely happy with Bright Io I wanted to try making another version of the song that somewhat abandons the original idea of having a lot stuff going on and having a lot of layers. As a result this version of the song should sound quite a lot clearer as it has reduced number of layers. I think that it is also less trancy and more like drum and bass in general when compared to Bright Io.

Drum & bass

Description

I wanted to try creating a drum and bass song that got a lot of its inspiration from some psy trance songs. Basically, there is a large number of layers that together create a rather complex atmosphere but at the same time the song has drum and bass characteristics.

This song didn't necessarily turn out the way I wanted and I think it contains to some extent a bit too much stuff, making it sound a bit messy. Therefore I wanted to make another version of this song, Dark Io, that somewhat abandons the original idea of having a lot stuff going on and having a lot of layers. As a result Dark Io should sound quite a lot clearer.

Chiptune drum & bass

Description

I decided to create another chiptune drum and bass song as I really like the genre. The song is quite similar to my previous song Triton but this time I created the drums using actual drum samples instead of creating 8-bit drums using the noise channel like I did with Triton.

Description

I listened to some psytrance which is a new genre for me and that inspired me to create this song. I don't think however, that this song is really so much psytrance but the songs that inspired me had a huge amount of stuff going on, a lot of layers basically, which is also the idea in this song. Having an interesting melody in the bass is also something that was in one of the psytrance songs.

8-bit drum & bass

Description

This song is a somewhat interesting combination of pure 8-bit instruments and drum and bass where the drums are generated from noise. It feels like I can make much more complex melodies and that kind of stuff when the instruments are very simple like in this song. However in my other music, when I use a lot more instruments that are also way more complex, the melodies tend to get very simple as I concentrate more on the sound of the song.

Description

This song draws its inspiration from the Unreal Tournament 3 soundtrack and most of the inspiration comes from the ONS01 song. The genre is mostly drum and bass although the tempo is slightly slower than in most DnB.
