Original: Famelik - Le couscous c'est la vie

This mix is from some stems given to members of the upcoming Unlog compilation. I'll have an unreleased track on it. So, look forward to it! It has artists from around the globe.

I had a lot of fun messing with the original 8bit synth. I cut it up real nice. The track gets progressively lighter in tone as it wears on. There was a message in the folder that told everyone to have fun and either remix or all of us create pieces for one common mix of the original stems. So, this could be part of a much grander track - We'll see what comes out of it. It was supplied if anyone wanted to give it a go - So, I'm not sure where the original files, as a whole, are going to go.

Hah, honestly I find your music on here to be refreshing. It's certainly my type of music, all the way, love it. I just can't wait until next year to learn some music theory, too busy doing nothing ATM to learn myself.

Lapse responds:

Thanks a lot, joxp. Heh heh - You should dive into it on your own!

One of the great glitch songs. I am not a musician and can't really comment on this in depth intelligently. This is awesomeness on multiple levels, easily contend-able with the NG featured music and the other more popular stuff.

Lapse responds:

I'm really happy you thank that. Thanks a lot, man. I actually have a song that has been first on the front page for a good bit right now! I'm glad you think my stuff is that worthy. :)

Really like this one too, Keep up the good work!

Lapse responds:

Thanks man!

Holy crap. There's so much dissonance in this track, yet it's all executed with so much control. Chopped samples swirling in and out of the track with various levels of distortion, with the drums breaking their own flow periodically, tossing the listener even deeper into this song. I am amazed by this. Definitely one of your best.

Lapse responds:

Glad you dig, Retro. I think this turned out pretty well for only a days work (from like early morning to late night, ha). I put in some more today, just uploaded a new version of the track. Some minor adjustments / additions that had been throwing off my listen when I was reviewing it today. I had some fun with this one. As always, thank you for listening.
