Recently I was interviewed about some of the gear I use in my productions. In this video I talk about why I like to use Adam Audio monitors and Moog synthesizers.
I love to DJ house parties, especially on Halloween. This one had an Alice in Wonderland theme but heads could dress up as anything they wanted. You can see the Cheshire Cat, Tweedle Dumb, the White Rabbit and random other freaks getting down.
I said it a few years ago and thanks to WikiLeaks I can say it again. Eric Schmidt, the head of Google explains to Hillary how they use the data they collect from you to target voters. I think it might be time to re-visit Google Knows.
Google Knows, what you know
The real you is what you do when you're alone
You're not alone!
Every time you enter data they save it as their own
Google owns everything you ever type on their site from home or phone
Google knows every search string brings them that closer to your clone
Here is the email from Schmidt to Clinton...
I'm incredibly grateful to have been chosen as a featured artist on Eventide's website. Eventide make the best-sounding studio effects and stomp boxes. Ask anybody that's worked in a professional studio and they are sure to sing praise about their iconic gear. Even if you've never heard OF them, you HAVE definitely heard them on countless hit records from the past 40 years.
If you're a musician, definitely check out their plug-ins & stompboxes. They will take your compositions to the next level. They also offer a free, unrestricted 30-day demo for all their software.
Here's the interview I did with AMS in which I talk about my creative process.
Want to see how I make a beat? This features me in the recording process of the beat you hear in the video. It starts at a record show digging in crates and continues until the final mixdown.
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.
