Mixes of Out Of Focus out!

Tags: , , , ,

I had the great honour to mix and remix of Out Of Focus‘ song “Värdighet” (“Dignity” in Swedish – they also have a lot of songs in english, so check them out!).

First, we mixed the original version, totally separate from each other, with very different result as you can hear. A practical lesson in how much the mixing process and different mixing engineers can influence a piece.

Then I couldn’t resist to make some more, so the result was “Värdighet – andra låten på B-sidanmix” (second song on the B-side mix).

Also a pleasure to do and, as those remembering physical records,  those B-side songs or remixes could be quite freely arranged or really out there, so hence the name, and – as you can guess – I did it quite in a spontaneous way.
I highly recommend it to you music makers out there, as it gives you a feeling of total freedom! 🙂

Also, there is a dance remix on the way…expect more news soon.
EDIT: I forgot to post it, you can listen/download the dance mix here.

 

Out Of Focus is two very talented musicians who has worked together since the 80s, and it was a real pleasure to do this with them. Their style could  perhaps be described as pop in 80’s arrangements but modern sounds, and the lyrics… are they dark humour or unhappiness for real?

New two-track single out

Artwokr for Commuterpop "121212"

You can never guess what’s in the picture!

Following my date tradition, I follow up the singles “101010” and “111111” today with “121212

The track “121212” (Click the triangle to listen) is a upbeat, funky song with horns, hammond and swingy percussion on a solid bass drum bed.

Actually the beginning of the song saw the daylight a couple of years ago, and enhanched with some rearanging tips from my extremely multitalended brother in law Carl Arsenic

Nobody said its gonna be easy (Click the triangle to listen) is a path I will discover more, somewhere in the borderlands between cinematic music and experimental.
The title refers to the listening experience of the song…. 🙂

If you prefer to download both, with cover art included, as a zip file you can do it by following this link.

Commuterpop - coverart 11-11-11

At 11-11-11, 11:11 this new single was released.

Two songs, “11-11-11” and “How about our dinner invitation” in one convinient zip package including cover art, ready for you to download and enjoy!

If you want to hear them first, just click the arrows in front of the title.

“11-11-11” – first tryout is a bit funky thing, however not yet really finished. Consider it a work in progress.

commuterpop.com/cms/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/Commuterpop-How-about-our-dinner-invitation.mp3

“How about our dinner invitation”  i a moody, chillout ambient song with some lightharted quirky sounds to complement it.
It was originally published in 2009 on the now closed Tunited site, Midge Ure’s project of nurturing bands into the business, and the title was a humourus way of reminding him that he hadn’t answer our dinner invitation when he and the rest of Ultravox was coming to play in Stockholm…:-)

First songs published!

Tags: , ,

Here you have it: the first two published songs on this site:

1) Techno for grownups
and
2) 101010

Consider it a single; haven’t had time to make a cover, but I’ll keep the time limit, todays date is 101010….:-)

Techno for grownups is a “tounge in cheek” take on modern dance music, arranged in a more “traditional” pop way.

It has been described/compared toYello, Orbital amongst others.
Other peoples responses to your own music is sometimes quite surprising! 🙂

101010 is a slow, moody, ambient electronic track, suitable for a dark evening in a sentimental mood, perhaps.
It has been described as early John Foxx, urban futuristic, the Orb amongst other.

Download and enjoy!
