I did a thing! DI Radio for Android v2.0

2015-06-05 04:50:53 by Mich

Hi all! I realize this isn't quite Newgrounds related, but I'm quite elated about this so bear with me.

I work with the awesome team at Digitally Imported Radio, and have been working on a brand new app for Android for the service for the last 10 months. All that work has come to fruition last night, as we finally released it.

So, if you're a fan of any kind of electronic music, go install it!

Huge thanks to my coworkers, Ian: for the "backend" coding of the app, as well as actual audio playback; Michał for assistance with design changes and missing iconography and all that; and last, but not least, Jonathan, who tirelessly worked to try and find ways to break the code I had written (in other words, very thorough testing).

Rezzie's album, "9" - Unconventional, non-generic music

2014-12-15 04:53:04 by Mich

I've just bought Rezzie's (Sequenced on NG) new album, titled "9", and so should you. It's a very fresh sounding collection of tracks, forming quite the opposite of generic.

Check it out on Bandcamp

If you're into that kinda thing, I made a droney ambient track list night. It runs for a good 7 minutes and 41 seconds.

Mammatus clouds over Belgium

2014-06-10 03:10:21 by Mich

I'm visiting family in Belgium, and it appears I've chosen a good time to enjoy the heat thunderstorms, which come with sweet cloud formations. Here are a couple of photos I took yesterday.

You can click them for the full size.

SmithCommaJohn received notice last night that he and his family need to vacate their apartment within 90 days as the building is being torn down. They need all the financial support they can get to be able to find a new place within that time. 

Fortunately, we Newgrounders can help buy buying his EP on BandCamp and being generous in the "name your price" box. So without any further ado, GO GET IT

The best track I've ever written - Trance inside!

2014-01-12 12:36:30 by Mich

Edit: I just noticed I posted this on my 6th account birthday, so woopee!

Welp, here you go NG, an NG cut of a Trance track I worked on for ages. I present to you: Magnitude  



The full version (8:35 instead of this 4:38) is on SoundCloud and BandCamp. Thanks for listening!

Here's one I took recently. Turned out pretty well, I think.

Happy holidays!

In other news, I moved house recently. Still figuring out the nearby good photo spots.  

John Hopkins is awesome, check out this amazing track by him

2013-09-01 18:45:48 by Mich

Sorry, no picture this time, but I really felt this was worth checking out.

John Hopkins recently released an album, "Immunity", and one of the tracks on there is just sublime. It's called Abandon Window:

I advise you to plug in a set of high quality headphones and turn up the volume to fully appreciate it. There is some masterful sound design and production going on in there. He manipulates the bits of reverb so well, it makes me rather jealous. I suspect there's also a good deal of field recording embedded in the noise that builds up throughout.

You can buy just this track here: Abandon Window on Beatport

Or get the whole album here: John Hopkins's "Immunity" on Beatport
