Ha! Found Some of My Old Songs on MySpace

Standard
2007

Danger Mouth concert. Rexburg, Idaho 2007

One of my co-workers showed me his old Myspace profile and I showed him mine. Had some good laughs. I have some songs I produced uploaded there quite a few years ago. Decided to share them here.

I loved making this song. These are some of the first vocals I recorded. This was recorded in Provo, Utah in 2008. When I wasn’t on tour and my bad, Love You Long Time, was, MC Oz would play this while the band was setting up. I remember feeling so proud when he came up to me and said, “Dude! This song is so dope! I play it before every show now.”

What I Got from Nertz/Tycon8000 on Myspace.

Made this one in 2009. I still love it. This is about the time when Justice came out, so I was into heavier beats with a duck. This is one of those songs I made that still speaks to my soul for producing music. It’s almost a lost art to me now. 5 years ago I would spend 4+ hours per day making music–never tired of it.

Too Many Fishes in the Sea from Nertz/Tycon8000 on Myspace.

I loved making this song and it has some cool things happening. This is a raw cut recorded by MC Oz of Love You Long Time recorded in his rental in Rexburg, Idaho.

Lullabye from Tycon8000 on Myspace.

This snippet has some pretty cool sounds I made myself with…I forget which VST, but I loved it at the time. I could crank out some dope sounds twisting knobs and adding filters and fx.

Here is the first vocal recording of I Had U Wrong, circa 2006.

Butterscotch Lollipops – still on of my favorite beats and cuts. You can hear me on the backup vocals in the chorus.

My friend Jacob Rosen played a little guitar for me that I cut up and made this slow jam inProvo, UT 2008.

J Real from Nertz/Tycon8000 on Myspace.

This is another cut where I asked Jacob Rosen to play me some guitar. This is one of my slow jams that still speaks to my soul. Love Rhodes pianos. So smooth and full of feeling.

And an extra one for good measure 🙂

Was the government created to rule or to serve?

When a government ceases to be a servant of the people, what does it then become- Their master.

Is government created and established to rule or to serve?

When a government ceases to be a servant of the people, what does it then become? Their master.

When a government believes that it is greater than the people it was created to serve, the government then becomes a danger to the people, for they will do all they can to indoctrinate their people through fear and control.

The government created public schools under the premise of creating a more educated nation. A more educated nation? According to who’s ideas?

A more educated nation?

According to who’s ideas?

Who dictates what is taught in public schools? Certainly the ones who fund the schools.

Who funds public schools? We do with our tax money.

Why then are we not the ones to decide what is taught? ‘Tis the government’s plight to decide because they take our money for the “greater good” and then rule with the same through withholding it unless their rules for regaining it are not obeyed.

The U.S. government can sue schools and withdraw funding if those schools do not abide by the government’s dictates.

Oh, the cunning of those in power.

Educate, they will.

But just enough to keep their people stupid enough

to not realize what’s really going on.

Control the education of the people, control the people.

The Making of “All Night” + Remixes and Download

Standard

When Brian and I made “All Night,” it was magic. Knocked it out in one night. The beat and lyrics were written en-lieu of a girl who I was dating cheated on me. You can hear the frustration of what to do with the situation in the lyrics. I wrote most of the lyrics and melody. Just flowed. We both agreed that we needed to let the band finish the song without any music on my part for the ending. As you hear, the band killed it. When they showed me what they came up with, I was amazed and so pumped. Oz and I had so many songs like that. We just clicked on what we heard, did and created. This one was an inspirational night of music making.

Lindsey Stirling – ‘Stars Align’ Competition : I Won!

Standard

I recently decided to take a stab at a video for a Lindsey Sterling competition. In total, I had about 7 days to make the video.

I used to produce and compose music for a band called Love You Long Time, decided to take the liberty of putting my own personal touch on Lindsey’s Star’s align song with an original remake.

After 5 hours of cutting and producing, and about 2 hours of dancing, filming and video editing…. I uploaded what might’ve been the crappiest video ever (what can you do when you’re up against a deadline, right?).

You REALLY wanna see it? Ok, here it is:

2 days after submitting this puppy to Lindsey’s competition, I found out that I had won! Oh yeah!

Thank you, Lindsey Stirling 🙂
