DV - Compression Calamity

Share Download this song

Author Comments

Hey NG,

This one was me fucking around trying to learn how to maximize sound output through compression back in the day and figuring out clipping at obscene levels actually forms its own sort of sweeps which I thought was hilarious; hence the name. Doesn't actually have a proper bassline but that doesnt take away from the fact it looked like somebody tossed a brick into my compressor, lols.

Part of multiple uploads of forgotten / unfinished work from 2013-2014.

Edit: Just noticed that this one got frontpaged. That's pretty swell, thanks a bunch! :-) I've got plenty more music coming up this year, so toss me a follow if you like breaks, drumnbass or industrial sounding stuff.

I fuuuuuuuucking LOVE THIIIIIIIIIIIIIS, so ambient, the first 20 seconds especially

nice vibes

la-yinn responds:

Get your vibe on!

Those are some real phatt bases you got there, not to mention the incredible dark vibe the whole track's got. I love the chords at the beggining as well, really cements that old school technical Neurofunk almost Current Value-ish roller theme. It's a bit short and the end's sudden, almost cutting off but it's really freakin' good as it is.

la-yinn responds:

Thanks for the review! Im a very big fan of neurofunk in general. Most of my stuff ive produced is industrial-esque, but I've tried to turn more towards techy dnb styles. Working on some roller tunes atm

This soundtrack should be in a video game.

la-yinn responds:

Would be pretty neat

It takes me to the future: a sci-fi setting in which I enter an aseptic intersetellar ship. However, moments later the 'splooges' start oozing out from between the tiles.

la-yinn responds:

Back to the future, the future that is 2013
