New dFp track (well, sort of, I made it last year) - Elsewhere, available now on Soundcloud

October and everything after

One of the annoying things about writing music by yourself is that sometimes, you miss a mark so widely that what you make isn't fit for purpose. Sadly this is what happened with the Subspec release I was working on in October and a remix I was doing in November.

For the Subspec thing, it just wasn't sitting with the other tracks, and frankly I had to go and look up what "groove-driven DJ-friendly Techno" actually meant before conceding the point.

As for the remix, personally I thought it rocked but was let down by the quality of the vocal stems provided by SPC:ECO. No feedback was received about what I submitted and when I finally heard the full, original track, I realised I didn't actually like the arrangement.

Such is life.

Well, on to better things. I need to be fighting slightly less space battles and pick up the music thing again since I have dragged my studio stuff down to my new place finally.

Meantime I will put the Subspec track up on soundcloud (I'm hungover, I might have done this already) and re-task the remix stuff as I was careful to only use the vocal stems, nothing else. Heh, I suppose I could cover it with another female vocalist. Apply within :)

Dirty Fire Project track "Aurora Null" appearing on Subspec's debut compilation

From their site

"Subspec will be a digital music label focusing on DJ-oriented, beat-driven electronic music... in a nutshell we intend to focus on Techno, Breaks, and Electro and various subgenres of each.[snip]Subspec is a new label collaboration between Rob Galbraith (Component Records) and Josh Garrett (Xynthetic Music / Netlabel)."

I am proud to announce that a new Dirty Fire Project track called "Aurora Null" has been selected to be part of Subspec's debut compilation.
You can hear the label demo at their soundcloud on Due to a slight mix up, this currently includes a draft version of another new Dirty Fire Project track called "After The Fire". This still needs some work on it but I hope you like how it's sounding so far :)

Edit: Their label demo soundcloud no longer exists. You can find Aurora Null on dFp's Soundcloud.
