This track is an effort to paint the Hell of the north in music. Every part of the instrumentation represents what the riders experience on their way from Compiègne to the velodrome in Roubaix. The double kick drums is the relentless hammering of the cobbles through your front wheel and into your body, the tempo of the track matches the epileptic cadence you have to push to fight for position at the front of the pack. Every cymbal hit is the sound of another rider crashing out of the race. The composition, inspired by Vivaldis Opus #8, tells emotions of hope, despair, crushed dreams and it incorporates the very foundation of Paris Roubaix: Never give up. (and pray that the weather gods drops a healthy amount of rain on the Arenberg forest this Sunday)
BREAKER, the Breakout, Space Invaders and Ikaruga mashup by Daniel Linssen including my responsive soundtrack and Martin Kvales sound effects are now finally available for everyone through here: https://managore.itch.io/breaker and the OST via Data Airlines here: https://dubmood.bandcamp.com/album/breaker-original-video-game-soundtrack-data080
My new OST for Daniel Linssens Breaker is now also available through Spotify! (and probably all the other platforms as well but only the ones with dark themes count right?) https://open.spotify.com/album/1Hv0pkydL9l0rybwimNDa8?si=zIpTXKlmTTKX55MyeA7jpg
Hey did I miss to mention that there is a re-edition of my long sold out Lost Floppies 1 12" available through Data Airlines ? I believe I did. http://www.dataairlines.net/product/dubmood-lost-floppies-vol-1-12-vinyl/
So I just sneaked out a new release. https://dubmood.bandcamp.com/album/breaker-original-video-game-soundtrack-data080 Breaker is a game by Daniel Linssen with a weird blend between breakout, space invaders and ikaruga that features an original, responsive soundtrack by me as well as sound effects by MARTIN KVALE. The game is available through the The 2018 Fantastic Arcade Bundle. The game version of the soundtrack is divided into two interchangeable set of loops that whose intensitivity mirrors the gameplay. For practical reasons, the non-game version has been split up and given intros and outros. Pro tip: get it from dataairlines.net and you'll have a blue and gold glitter cassette instead of the bandcamp red glitter one. TL;DR: ALMOST AN HOUR OF CHIPTUNE BEATS! SOME FAMILIAR, SOME NOT. 🏴☠️🏴☠️🏴☠️🏴🏴🏴
Now to one of my more unknown productions, but still one that I am much proud of. Because it has finally found its way onto a less cool but easier to consume through platform. aka YouTube. This is the full 24 episodes from Bob Nimbes Xnitzy && Xnutzi advent calendar from 2010 where I did minimalist covers of more or less well known tracks from myself and others. Now dig.
▄▄▄ In case you missed it. ▄▄▄ We released a new album called Overshoot Days. It's available in digital, 12" LP and audio cassette, release through Data Airlines. Check it out on Bandcamp Check it out here: https://dubmood.bandcamp.com/album/overshoot-days-data075 or on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/3n4eyLaPdojFcprhFOz7e5?si=50pyBQxUR_muslbcFp2zNA I say "we", because just like all my recent work for the last decade, it was a collective effort. Musically, almost composed with four hands, thanks to GEM TOS the android (who is now in space). But also with a lot of help and input from Bright White Lightning and Bob Nimbe. The latter is also pulling the heavy creative load and twisting his brain like a polkastång so that the dubmood universe gets visualized. And I shouldn't neglect to mention Daniel Linssen who's own universe contributed to our inspiration for Overshoot Days, and track 10 on the album is from his planet simulation game Planetarium that you should check out here: https://managore.itch.io/planetarium Mastering was done by Paul Cousins & the album includes feautrings by Bright White Lightning and ANDROMAKERS. Overshoot Days is the followup to Machine and as such a continuation of this story line exploring themes of overreach, depletion of resources and departure. To face the decision of to stay or to leave, to change or decay, and the consequences for what is left behind. The sounds of Overshoot Days is a blend of the two previously mentioned albums, proto-internet digital computer soundchips with analogue mellowness and human percussion. Devices used to generate the sound on this album include Atari 1040STfm, Atari 1040STe, Funkmotor Labs AY-synth, Kawai 100F, Moog Liberation, Korg VC-10, Oberheim 2 Voice, Korg Mono/Poly and a bunch of soundwaves drawn with a computer mouse in Fast Tracker 2. All in all we spent four years composing, decomposing, recomposing, throwing away, regretting, digging through trash, re-imagining, finishing, loosing, rebuilding and then scared shitless hiding it in doubt before finally releasing this album and I very much hope you like it. The vinyl is still on pre-order but will hopefully ship within two weeks. Every pre-order comes with a folded and hand numbered limited edition poster that will not be available elsewhere or otherwise. So don't miss it. Cassetets are already shipping. Thank you for your time. <3 #cassette #vinyl #cassettecollector #indielabel #chiptune #chipmusic #retrofuture #vinylcollector
New album. We ran out of resources so GEM TOS put the ol volvo on fire and decided to take of into space on a giant sleeper ship while the rest of us are stranded in the dead woods of Småland. Passing our time. Get it on vinyl or audio cassette from bandcamp via Data Airlines https://dubmood.bandcamp.com/album/overshoot-days-data075 The album also features Bright White Lightning and ANDROMAKERS on vocals, while Maskinpop did the cover art.
We are very happy to finally announce that our new album. Overshoot Days, will drop with @Dataairlines on September 16th. On Machine, GEM TOS & Dubmood contemplated on the feelings and bonds between humans and technology. On the followup, Force de Frappe, those relations were studied even further and in a concept of nuclear conflict and mutual total destruction. Overshoot Days is a continuation of this story line exploring themes of overreach, depletion of resources and departure. To face the decision of to stay or to leave, to change or decay, and the consequences for what is left behind. The sounds of Overshoot Days is a blend of the two previously mentioned albums, proto-internet digital computer soundchips with analogue mellowness and human percussion. It will be available on audio cassette and on 30,48cm records.
As promised, we bring news regarding our next album. The album is 100% done and currently being pressed. We have not yet been given an exact date by Data Airlines but not later than August 2018. The album takes place in the same story line as Machine and Force de Frappe, more precisely after the former, before the latter. A part from the always present GEM TOS, there will also be featurings by Bright White Lightning and ANDROMAKERS.
Many of you have been asking for news regarding our next album. We have news. But we refuse to share them until the last 2 copies of our latest album are gone. So go get them here: http://www.dataairlines.net/product/force-de-frappe/
