Ballad of the baker

Author Comments

Made about 1 year before my other submission (titled Evocation Madness Extravaganza), so you can actually hear, that it's not as developed, mainly in mastering. I was working in a bakery at the time of its "renovation", that's why the weird association. :D Doesn't contain samples.

Wanted to bend "messy metropolis-style music" with a more relaxed "joy-of-life" tune, then throw in some drum n bass just for fun.

Experimental elements (what I concentrated on):
- instantaneous changes of BPM and overall atmoshpere
- succession of the instruments showing themselves
- panning
- variety of drum usage

Programs used:
- Jeskola Buzz freeware digital synthetizer, which I adore immensely
(www.buzzmachines.com - try the new Buzz beta, it kicks a**!)

Especially from around 4:50 to 5:10. Excellent work! The only thing I would say work on to, would be it's a little bit scratchy. Not quite like nails on a chalkboard... but maybe halfway there? It's epic though! Good job :)

Kados responds:

Tyvm for the constructive criticism. :) Peace


This is really new wave. Those crazy rhythms and synths are awesome! Sounds like aliens made it.

Kados responds:

Ouch, there goes my incognito... LOL
Thanks for your feedback. Peace to Earth people! :D

it's very interesting

in a good way. It might start off iffy, but it really gets very good and it never gets boring or dull. It covers so much ground to, the way the energy just fluctuates so nicely and easily without it sounding the slightest bit out of place.

Kados responds:

Thank you for your thoughts, esp. in the light of our styles differing. :) Peace!

All or none

8 because all this is nicely done. DO you have the Amen in there really slow and distorted lol? I would like to hear a DnB track with this style. Random and nicely done all around. Ima check your other stuff, do the same for me. Thanks for this.

Kados responds:

You nailed it, Amen Brother :D At that time I didn't know where it originated from, or how widely it's used. Now I revere it more, and use it less.
You sure made a lot of valuable music, thus I'm happy about your positive opinion. Gonna listen to them, but takes a while lol.

Thx for the post, peace


I love this song. It has sort of a grunge feel to it that is pleasing to the ears. Reminds me of a factory. Faved.

Kados responds:

Thanks bro, you have some pretty neat moves yourself! peace
