New Music from Moduloktopus: Tutorial Video on Making Music with Sonar and Windows 8

The beatmaking community are not only a creative bunch, but hard working and generous too.

Just look at The New Beatmaker favourite Moduloktopus, who, in 2013, tirelessly showered his hungry followers with musical treats via his soundcloud page, week in, week out.

To keep the New Year cheer going, the man himself has collected his prolific output from the year and put it all together for your listening enjoyment and ease.

Moduloktopus is able to specialise in polished tracks – both original and reworkings - which are energetic, cleverly composed and unpredictable.  Check out the compilation, ‘Alltopus’, below and download it here.

Clearly an artist not content with resting on his laurels, he has kicked off 2014 with a remix of one of the biggest hip hop tracks out, reworking it in his own inimitable fashion; followed by a brand new original composition.

As if all that wasn’t enough, has stepped from behind the boards and in front of the camera and recorded some great tutorials on how to produce music using Windows 8 and Sonar for the good folks over at Cakewalk.  Even if you do not use Sonar, this video should provide inspiration and maybe help with your own workflow.

For more tutorials from the homie Moduloktopus, he’s also an instructor of Music Production at Boston’s MMMMAVEN  school, which can be checked out here:

Props to Moduloktopus.  Keep it coming.

The Theory For Our Revenge 'OBORO'

REVIEW: Japanese multimedia art duo make a great first impression with their mix of industrial, trap and operatic pop The following is a paid for review and post, via humanhuman (see below).  It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially  when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as this first offering from The Theory For Our Revenge is. The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo. Their debut single ,'OBORO', is a slice of experimental electro-trap / operatic-art-pop. Starting with an industrial sounding chugging and churning, the track moves into frosty, haunting melodies. It's in these opening bars that the only potential hiccup occurs. Around the 0:38 and 1:12 marks there's a jagged synth whistle which i

Georgel ‘Colibrí’

REVIEW: 'Colibrí' highlights Georgel’s potential as a superstar in the making It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as Georgel’s ‘Colibri’. A slice of swaggering, sensual, big band pop, ‘Colibri’ is a superb offering from the singer songwriter.     ‘Colibrí’ immediately demands listener attention thanks to punchy horn stabs, satisfying drum fills and Georgel’s strong vocals.  Listener attention is maintained throughout due to the athletic and theatrical flair of both vocals and instrumentation. These theatrics never descend into ham or kitsch. The hook is slinky and sensual, adding an extra layer to an already super-enjoyable cut. The memorable arrangement and vocals, together with professional mixing and mastering mean the song would be as much at home in a big-budget Hollywood musical or Broadway show as it would be on your favourite music streaming servi
