I don’t know much about electribes. But the mix sounds fascinating. Before the drums kick in, I hear what sounds like vintage sci-fi effects (from the days of Starlost, Dr. Who, etc.)

Which sounds in this come from it?

Everything but the vocals, the trumpet and those drums in the second half comes from the electribe. It’s basically a drum sequencer but there are oscillator, amp and delay knobs you can play with (ten in all) in real time and in combination (more than one at a time) to tweak the sound. It’s a lot of fun.

Now I have to google Starlost. I thought I knew all the old sci-fi shows.

Hmm… yeah, never heard of it. Put in my netflix queue, along with Quark, another one I was not aware of. I could use some light entertainment. Just finished season two of Breaking Bad. Man that’s dark. But I can’t seem to turn away.

Ahh now. This … well, this is just what I needed to hear. Something familiar, something new; and as result a flame of sorts was kindled.

Thanks for sharing.

I had a roommate once that had a bunch of electribes. Pretty cool stuff. Listening to this one put me in a trance.

I can’t stop listening but I’m not sure why! Your track has the effect on me of stopping the need for thought - as if it’s filling my brain and carrying out some new process. It’s about time something new happened there. ejc’s writing is excellent, as usual.

Hypnotized me. Noir and avant-garde electronic music. Interesting.

This was good. Especially with headphones.
