This is a Vangelis style mix produced with FL 10. I particularly wanted to have a play with the brilliant new Drum pad device. I was very impressed with the Vangelis orchestral drums it helped me create. The structure is intro, bridge, main section, bridge to modulate for a different conclusion key when the sun eventually rises and it is safe to come out.

US2K Review: Well its one of my own so sorry folks no review or score.

Here's another on for your library

US2K Review: This mix begins with a stadium horn, vox, a musical saw, and a rhythmic acid bass line treated with reverb. A four on the floor bass drum pattern joins the arrangement six seconds into the mix, after musical saw moment and some other difficult to describe but atmospheric sound effects. Some rather interesting percussion on maybe a "low in the mix" clap and a yelling vox "Here we go again" introduces and then drives a lovely commercial dance hook. The foot is already tapping like mad by the time the 1-minute mark is reached at which point an amazing answer melody for the dance hook. The result is a new seriously addictive hook, which I will refer to as the "anthem". I am sure if this were played at a field party everyone would have a massive natural high. Seriously it is massive anthem sound, Max why did you not enter this into the music competition? Anyway this what I can only describe as a musical "head buzz", including its little variations on the theme.

After two minute 40 seconds of play there is a gorgeous drop of the drums followed by a bridge designed to work the listener back into the massive hook. The acid bass and the vox from earlier, followed by a bass drum with some decorative rolls begin this bridge section. Then a stadium horn, other atmospheric sound effects, and part of the "anthem" melody returns and the "low in the mix" clap which sounds like a live audience this time round. Then the rest of the anthem parts and a four on the floor dance clap with occasional fills enter the mix. It is the ideal drum pattern to drive such a quality dance "anthem". The "anthem" continues until a fade out after 4 minute 47 seconds of play-time.

My evaluation of this mix is that it has a simple structure but which is ideal with such a strong anthem to drive the dance floor wild. The melodies and hooks are from field party heaven. The use of sound effects, vox and drum fills to add interest or drive the mix energy is of professional standard. All studio mastering, including equalisation reverb, delay processing and stereo positioning is faultless. Also may I add this is one of Max' s mixes where the contrast of instrument frequency sounds spot on, there are not moments where you are not sure if another instrument has been added or not like in some of his mixes. The result is a crystal quality sound overall. I would gladly pay a fiver for a six-minute version of "Messages" if the clap from the bridge were gradually raised to enhance the fake live feeling. It would create a sense of rising intensity you get in a live show situation. If the end section were extended it would have to maintain the clap and maybe introduce a hi-hat too. Anyway of my hypothesis about an extended version, my final score for this mix is 10+ out of 10. It is a brilliantly dance floor friendly mix, a commercial club anthem to make a field party buzz in my opinion, well worth a listen.

kickin' in with another bangin' tune

US2K Review: The mix begins with an interesting harmonic sound effect that sounds like it was created either by an altering acid sweep sound and adding reverb or from guitar feedback. This sound is joined by a variation of a four on the floor bass drum pattern. This is shortly followed by the excellent vox "Break it Down" "Break Down" that is very Yellow/Oingo Boingo a very catchy acid hook played by a set of vintage sounding synths including bass, and a heavy snare to accent the strong bass drum beats. The hook is good on its own with the vocal accenting multiple repeats of it but what polishes the composition is the little variations sound effects such as the mechanical sounds for percussion right of the stereo field and the occasional bass drum drops and very sections on a sound that sounds not dissimilar to guitar that add energy and interest to the mix, accenting repeats of the hook. This musical section I consider to be main theme one.

Main theme one continues until the one minute 27 second position in the mix. At this point there is an 80s electro style bridge variation section where a variation melody is played with a drum variation including the mechanical sounds and a 'Break Break Down, Break, Break Down' vox variation to answer the main theme very skilfully. Shortly afterwards a fill reintroduces a variation of main theme one but with an alert sound initially but one of the accompaniment synths is now at a lower octave. This theme continues until the two minute 3 second mix position where the alert sound returns and then a new musical theme (2) arrives, a repeated section based on the main theme by the accompaniment synth which changed octave, now taking lead, and the guitar begins to play a more complex answering melody. This section is as good as the main theme and really does add a nice touch to the mix, and prepares the listener for the conclusion.

The conclusion begins at two minute 34 seconds with a clap/snare roll and a very short intentionally discordant break section before main theme one returns with the guitar taking lead and playing some really catchy melody lines that do a tremendous job of restating the musical ideas in the mix. The mix finally finishes by all drums and percussion leaving the mix, the synths and guitar being changed to play shorter notes, the vox "Break, Break, Break Down" and a clean end on an acid synth solo with the mechanical percussion.

My evaluation of this mix is that it is one of Max' s best ever productions. It has a very professional 80s style electro techno style and structure not dissimilar to that of "Oh Yeah" by Yello or "Weird Science" by Oingo Boingo. The hooks are so addictive and the musical melody and arrangement variations are top quality. Drum fills and other sound effects and vox to keep the mix interesting are very skilful. The use of fills is also technically precise for announcing changes in the mix, and the general studio production including equalisation, reverb, delay and stereo positioning is faultless. To conclude, my final score for this excellent 80s techno/house/electro crossover is 10 out of 10.

Another mix for ya Nige

US2K Review: This tech trance mix begins with a delay treated happy synth hook (main hook of the mix). The vocal 'OK' introduces a bass drum playing a variation of four on the floor. Shortly after afterwards there is another 'OK' and the introduction of a synthesiser playing an acid line (possibly scales from dischord). The resulting arrangement is very catchy, and I will refer to as main theme 1. This theme continues to 42 seconds into the mix before another 'Ok' announces an early bridge section. This bridge consists of a whoosh sound the acid synth lead line melody is allowed to solo. There is the 'Ok' and a Spanish sounding 'Attention', a whoosh, bass drum roll and the hook and other instruments return to re-establish main theme 1 with a few more vocals and an additional accent snare with fills. My foot was certainly tapping by this time, and the mix is so much fun.

The vocals subside to an instrumental before around the 1 minute 22 second mark another 'OK' announces an additional synth playing a melody that seems to answer the hook well. The new musical theme continues until the 1 minute 48 second mix position. After this point the vocals and the answering synth take a temporary higher role, and the snare leaves the mix, whilst the number of simultaneous melodic instruments playing in the arrangement is reduced. This is only until a major change in the mix just after the two minutes play position. This change is the snare returning to jointly lead with the main hook, in fact initially playing some free-style patterns that sound like a live drummer. During this time the vocals are intentionally reduced in volume so they are almost in the background, before 'OK' comes back with more energy. A sense of slowing down has been cleverly achieved by the hook and bass drum remaining less powerful up to the next bridge at the three-minute position in the mix. This very short bridge consists of a moment where the hook melody is played intermittently with the snare, 'OK' and some new vocals 'Are We on it?' coming through the gaps to lead. This creates a sensation of the elements of the mix taking it in turns to lead or answer each other. After a gong around the three minute nine second position the bridge ends and the beginning of the conclusion starts.

The conclusion begins the main theme with more vocals continuing whilst a new synthesiser enters the mix and takes lead by answering the existing hook melody. This creates a new hook and refreshes the catchiness of the mix. This section of music progresses, the vocals becoming more regular, until just after the four play position. At this point a whoosh sound announces the removal of the snare. A solo lead synth restates the musical hook from the main theme, accompanied by the bass drum and vocals. The mix finally finishes at 4 minute 16 seconds after a snare drum roll, and one final 'Attention', the delay reflections from the last synth note.

My evaluations of this mix is that it is an intelligently structured techno composition with some very catchy moments. The use of delay, reverb, equalisation and production mastering shows great sound engineering knowledge. There are some interesting musical variations and bridges to maintain listener interest. There is skilful use of fills sound effects and vox to announce changes and add excitement to repeating sections, however I think that overall the mix has some themes such a the same vocals repeated too much to score ten out of ten. This means that my final score for this mix is 9 out of 10.

Nige , another for the library m8.

US2K Review: This mix begins with an acid bass line playing a set of menacing musical phrases intended to introduce the piece of music, not form a hook. After ten seconds another synth lead right of the stereo field plays two notes mid octave to introduce a bass drum pattern, which seems a variation of a four on the floor. There is a syncopation in it that makes it swing nicely. Some electronic sound effects and broken melody sections on the bass and on a lead synth introduce a fuller drum pattern including hi hats and a clap. This swinging four on the floor is the main groove to the mix. A rhythmic hook accompanies this groove on about three instruments. Interesting the melody is exciting but dark and menacing like the introduction in places. This affect is achieved with both some rather "squelchy" sounding filter effects and also discordant notes that by nature when used in a certain way are harsh or menacing soundings. Discords require a lot of luck or great skill to use without going out of tune. Here they are prevented from leading (which would have ruined the mix) with a more dominant catchy harmonic in nature techno riff on another synth, possibly a bass of some sort. The discords act more like an orchestral crash to answer the techno riff every so often. There is also a square wave synth playing short note stabs to keep the mix interesting. This musical section which I will refer to as main theme 1, flows nice to the 40 second mix position where there is a very short drum of the drum pattern on one of the "orchestral crashes". It is only a split second but has the affect of the mix sounding "fresh" again when the drum pattern returns. It is subtle but I noticed that the open hi hat does not return immediately which serves as a layer building technique.

Main theme continues to the 1 minute 46 seconds until one of the until the square wave synth plays a full melody section of its own and begin to takes to lead temporarily before the mix really takes off in catchiness with a more energetic variation of main theme one that remain exciting until a sweep sound right of the stereo-field announces the first bridge in the mix at one minute twenty four seconds play position.

The bridge involves all drums leaving the mix and the discords being allowed to lead for a short moment, which works in this situation as it creates a sense of urgency in the music. The synth playing the discords slowly changes to a more harmonic melody and the drums and instruments from main theme one return to the mix. This is return to the main groove and theme is only until the 2 minute 44 second position though, as the drum pattern leaves the mix again, and the square wave synth plays a dominant melody and takes lead again. When the drums return and a variation of theme is played. Right of the stereo field, a sound like a flying saucer spinning announces the removal of the square wave synth and possibly another, so the techno riff which has been driving the mix from the back up to now is able to lead. The other instruments slowly return, and the square wave synth returns to the playing some very catchy melody lines. The mix continues this way for about 2 minutes, Variations of the "flying saucer" sound at different pitches and further musical arrangement variations keep the mix interesting. The subtle point of interest to me is that the musical key slowly alters without the bass line noticeably changing. Continuing to the 4 minute 44 second position and further to a full five minutes of listening time, some major changes take place to announce the start of the conclusion. For one thing the discords lead again shortly for urgency again up before a fresh hook is formed by two new synth melodies answering each other, a drum of all the drums except the bass drums, and some sci-fi industrial sounding effects round the mix off intelligently, making the listener aware of an imminent finish. The final conclusion at five minute 45 seconds is a solo from one of the synths (it could be a duet but I am not certain) restating the new hook accompanied by the bass drum. This short section of music leads to the bass drum leaving the mix and another brassy synth left of the stereo-field playing a sustained stab that acts as a final note and a crash to cleanly finish the mix.

My evaluation of this mix is that it is one of Max' s most polished mixes. The structure is very well organised, the melody hooks are very entertaining. The drums, rhythm sections and bass lines are so addictive I was tapping my fingers throughout "Monster". The use of delay, reverb, equalisation and other mix mastering effects demonstrates great expertise. The use of musical variations and arrangement changes to retain listener interest is also "spot on". Also this mix unlike some by Max has a good set of contrasting instruments so changes are more obvious. The music is very fitting to the title as it reminds me of techno I would have heard in the late 80s or early 90s to a low budget video nasty, which I was by the way too young to be watching anyway but anyway back to the music... My final score for this sci-fi horror techno is ten out of ten. I am not sure if this mix is suitable for the dance-floor but it is well worth a listen to everyone who enjoys techno, as it is fascinating in my opinion.
