Hey, my homeslices!   A friend of mine has recently started up a music blog called traxx24, which has a sweet collection of posts so far and totally sounds like it could be an awesome arcade racing game.   It’s mostly about music marketing if you’re looking to get inspired for methods of promoting your tracks, but with an EDM edge to it.

There’s a really useful one collating a bunch of crowd-funding sites if you’re looking to harness your audience, some insightful interviews and a bunch of production-related tutorials to come.

Take a look and let him know if you have any ideas for posts or tutorials through his contact page, I know I always appreciated people giving ideas especially when I was starting out!

[David is standing minding his own business]
A: “Boo!”
D: “Eek! You scared me!”
A: “What were you doing yesterday apres-midi?”
D: “I was at a mixer with my stuntman friend”
A: Oh, how is Dynamic Mike?
D: “He attacked me! He set a trap!”
A: “Wow, what happened?”
D: “He punched me and said “You’re a bitch, and I’ll bus’ a cap in your ass.”
A: “I hope you didn’t sustain any injuries.”
D: “They’re minimal – I have a sore tooth, but I can still feel my pulse.
A: “Well at least that’s a sign that you’re ok.”
D: “I think he was on acid, he kept on gabbering on”
A: “What a dick, eh?”
D: “A complete knob. It was almost a homocide.”
A: “Good thing you’ve mastered a few martial arts.”
D: “When he wouldn’t release me I cutoff his arm.”
A: “Now I suppose you have to wave for him”
D: “At least I got my vengeance. He got what he deserved.”
A: “Amen.”
D: “Can I see your new house? I heard it has a garage!”
A: “Shure, have you eaten recently?”
D: “Yes, I ate – oh wait, I just heard my stomach growl – based on that I guess I am.”
A: “Well let’s head over to my pad.”
[we stay in the same position full body, the background changes with a swooshing noise]
D: “Let’s eat a stew, do you want some? Or do you want something else?”
A: “We could have some Fruity Loops if I can find them”
D: “They’re not next to the soup, I saw them near the produce I think…”
A: “How do you prepare triangle sandwiches?”
D: “It’s not very hi-tech – no, just mangle it, chop it and put it on a plate……reverb”
A: “These puns are becoming a bit of a stretch…..time….timestretch.”
D: “Let me just crossfade this broccoli.”
A: “That’s not a pun.”
D: “We need to MPC if we can come up with something really good to beat these.
A: “Well, this is a-”
D: “I gotta go in a bit.”
A: “This is a-”
D: “Would you be able to not do that right now, I have to kick you out soon.”
A: “But this is a-”
D: “…Loaf we can see, I’ll see you later”

I had my attention brought to this nice collection of drum samples, basses, FX and all kinds for dubstep production.

Compiled by the producer Pitchedsenses, these are really nice, particularly for more chilled dubstep – check the YouTube videos here to hear them in action, and it’s a like-the-facebook-page-to-download thingy, worth it imo since he makes some nice tracks as well.

Enjoy the samples!
