There has been a lot of excitement as of late surrounding the upcoming Phantasm movie, RaVager. This will be the final installment in the Phantasm series as famed Tall Man actor, Angus Grimm, passed away this year. The original movie was released in 1979 and is one of my favorite horror flicks. I dig it so much that I remixed the theme music and its gotten a lot of positive comments on YouTube. For this particular track I did a drum n' bass treatment which I think works well with the famous eerie melody.
If you are a guitarist, synthesizer head, or studio engineer, you know that Eventide makes some of the best effects in the business. They're great for use as outboard studio effects as well. Just bus those tracks out of the extra outputs on your audio interface and bring the processed sounds back in.
Pictured are the Eventide Space pedal (insane extraterrestrial reverbs), the MixingLink (studio Swiss Army Knife that combines a high-quality mic pre, mixer, practice amp, amp switcher, guitar switcher, and the ability to sing through your stompboxes in one pedal), the H9 Max (holy grail of stompboxes), the PowerFactor2 (best power block on the market), the Akai MPC Touch (super dope workflow), and of course, my studio cat, Dante.
One of our beats was recently used by the internet supergroup, the Impossebulls (founded by Chuck D of Public Enemy). The track "Bleeding Envy" off their new LP, "The Devils You Know", can be downloaded for free here. The credits in the liner notes say the track was produced by Phon-X, but this is Headsnack's other moniker when producing & rhyming for the group, Regenerated Headpiece.
The Eventide H910 Dual is one of my favorite effects. I thought it would be cool to make a song about it, using the effect on practically every track. Download the track here!
We produced this track for Illus and added some lyrics for the second verse. The beat features baby cries from each of our seeds.
There are quite a few Mister Softee remixes out there but we think ours really flips the theme on its head. Its not just the memorable jingle looped with a drum beat underneath it. We warp it up and add an entertaining cow driving the truck through space. Please share as you enjoy your tasty dairy treats and if you're in Cali, be sure to check out So-Cal's only Mister Softee, where they've got the deep secret menu and very cool people running the truck.
One of my latest instrumentals is featured in Eventide's preset demo video for their new Tverb plug-in. My music starts at 1:21 in through the end. Tverb is a really dope plug-in that has all sorts of uses, especially the famous David Bowie 3-mic technique as heard on his song "Heroes".
Garth Night's unofficial theme song. Hard hitting beats w/ synths that rip a hole in the sky.
Recently Shred Lexicon was up in the studio and this cute, 7 year old DJ, showed up to bust some rhymes. Here is a short portion of the cypher. Unfortunately, the rhyme battle between him and his mommy trying to get him to go to bed did not get recorded (but I swear it happened).
