Late one night...

US2K Review: (Historic JJ Review) Considering this one has no "generator" samples in it, and it's made with straight samples only, it's the pick of this bundle of three T4 mixes from Mark, for me personally... Again though, it tends to be repeating the same sequence, but at least it kicks in straight from the off, and it certainly has a lot more punch and vibration to it. The breaks that are dropped in are very short, but they are noticable, and contribute to some slight changes in the main theme. What does does jump out at you is the bass level, so if your woofers and/or sub's are wired in, this will make 'em rattle just a little... lol...
(Yoda' s Unknown Apprentice says) In comaprision to some of the music beign released in the name of minimal techno I think this mix deserved more then its original 3 out of 10, my final score is 5 out of 10.

Hi john, dark sounds, but it feels as light as the clouds, if you let yourself into the rhythm of the music!

US2K Review: This mix begins with a catchy percussive techno bass riff, a deeper sub-bass sound and hi-hats/shakers. As the 5 seconds position is reached, the percussive bass instrument has apparent filter sweep on it due to the frequency change effects.

Another instrument is slowly faded in, an orchestral stab sound, and by the 19 seconds position this instrument and the shaker/hi-hat percussion have both risen greatly in loudness. A particularly loud orchestral stab is used as a musical cue point for the deeper sub sound to leave the mix and a bass drum pattern to enter.

The bass drum is almost instantly joined by some rather atmospheric organic sounding percussion (the type of sounds creatures in the jungle would make probably formed by treating analogue drum machine snare sounds with various filters, flangers etc.). There is no accent clap and overall mix is becoming traditional techno rather than house, which is confirmed when another more bleepy bassline joins the existing bassline which is threatening to be acid by this time (the first bassline of the two I consider to be the main mix hook because everything else is simply to add interest or variation to the mix).

At the 43 seconds position, interest to an almost minimal mix is admirably retained by blending in a haunting pad string and other sounds to give the listener a darker more intense experience. 14 seconds later a factory cutting or grinding sound is used to add to the atmosphere and provide a cue point for a change in the mix. After the cue point the actual change which takes place is delayed to the 1 minute 1 second position, possibly to add an element of unpredictability to the mix.

The change at the 1 minute 1 second position is the beginning of a bridge section. The bridge is intended to create an intense sense of waiting after the bass drum and percussive bass rhythms depart the mix and higher frequency percussion is retained and a slower sub-bass plays a slower pattern.

As the bridge continues to the one minute 7 seconds position one of the higher frequency percussion patterns, a clap or snare rising slightly in frequency possible via a filter sweep or pitch changes. Six seconds later as the pitch is risen on the snare, another dog-bark like drum alternating left and right of the stereo-field is added to the arrangement, and a host of eerie effects including creaking and ratchet sounds.

A sweep at the 1 minute 27 seconds position announces another major change in the bridge, the removal of the sub-bass, and the return of both the percussive bassline and intense orchestral stab. Initially all other percussion is quieter, but some sound effects around the 1 minute 35 seconds position are used as a cue point for mixing all the layers of rhythm back in.

When the rhythm returns it is with the brief addition of a new sci-fi electronic sound. The new sound lasts until some abstract noises and a melodic Vangelis sci-fi style sweep are used to disguise its removal. After which other layers of instrument layers are also slowly removed making the mix progressively sparser, somehow creating a sense of anticipation to the listener again.

At the two minute twenty three position, the reduction of layers ends and a sweep is used to add a new layers instead, including some new filter swept clucky sounding electronic percussion (could be a cleverly affected tambourine), and the return of the the sub bass with some haunting pads. One minute 10 seconds later the end of a pad sound is used to remove the majority of the instruments, leaving only a few percussion sounds. Of the two most apparent is the clucky electronic sound and another which is like the words "You Are Scary" being whispered (creepy) although I may have imagined it, the mix file is available so anyone interested in knowing can investigate the mix.

The clucky electronic percussion is swept up as a cue point to the 2 minute 44 seconds point for the orchestral stabs to return briefly with the main mix hook 1 bassline.

At the 2 minute 58 seconds position, the pad and bassline somehow form a cue point for the bass drum to return and drive main mix hook and "you are scary". The occasional eerie string/pad melody being added to this mostly rhythm based arrangement enable the mix to continue to not just sound interesting but also menacing, up to the 3 minute 9 seconds position. A second alter some mid/high octave piano notes are slowly blended into the arrangement. Of course everything has hinted at horror up to now so the piano traditional horror score instrument was a good choice.

The mix continues up to the 3 minute 26 seconds positions with extra listener interest retained by periodically giving the piano and string/pads more or less presence as a result of adjusting their volume along with the main hook. Then after a natural cue point a short two part bridge is formed. The first part of is initiated with the rapid departure of the bass drum which leaves the mix without less drive, the second part of the bridge is after another natural cue point the bleepy bassline from much earlier, playing a variation of main mix hook 1 and the orchestral stabs.

The bassline and orchestral stabs repeat the same pattern four times before a scraping sound is used like a crash to re-introduce the bass drum and the filter swept/pitched altered electronic percussion sound, this time sounding even more like an altered tambourine.

The mix grows in intensity towards the conclusion, before a series of sound effects are used to remove the electronic percussion, allowing the orchestral stabs, and bass line joint leadership to the final moments of the composition.The mix finally finishes cleanly at the 4 minute 22 seconds position with a percussive fill, departure of all rhythm instruments, and few last orchestral stabs, accompanied by a synth playing a few descriptive ending notes.

My mix evaluation is that. My final score therefore comprises of structure 9 out of 10, strength of melody and catchiness 9 out of 10, use of sound engineering such as equalisation, panning delay, reverb, flange and mastering affects 9 out of 10, use of vox sound effects or drum fills to announce changes or just add interest 10 out of 10, Skill in arrangement and general changes to maintain interest 9 out of 10. The final score is 9 out of 10. To conclude this is a brilliant atmospheric, horror influenced techno production that is well worth listening to by those who enjoy techno and sci-fi or horror film scores.

US2K Review: (Historic JJ Review) A bit of a quieter mix from John, although the big, banging kicks are still present... lol... This one's a bit of a melodic synth mix, and we even get some scratchies on the unusual breaks... The intro and outro are good, and the tune certainly has a pulse to it, and the break-out to those scratches is cleverly done. Just after this come the best sequence in the tune for me, but the kicks in the final section overpower the tune by quite some way, because that's just about all you can hear really... Funnily enough, the daft combinations of samples sound all over the place, and mixed up, but still the tune wants to be played again and again..

Here's my new mix for you m8. DJ BassBomber.

US2K Review: (Original JJ) Review For some reason this mix sounds vaguely similar to something else I've heard recently...??? I think John is going through his hard stomping mix phase, because here we go again... A fairly straightforward intro, leading up to the "kick it" vocal sample break-in to the big heavy stuff...!!! The loud kicks accompanied by some pulsating synth's, and the odd cymb crash and vocal distraction... Should have been called Stompin' rather than Stonking, because that's what the Techno officianado's could be up to again when they hear this next and latest installment...

US2K says
This mix at the time scored no higher than 7 but had potential to score much higher. In fact the ending John was right about was similar to one of the best techno rave records ever Zombie Nation.

US2K Review: This mix begins with some lovely dreamy pads, after which there is very well executed layer build. This begins with a percussion (hats etc), bass drum then bass line, and finally the return of the pad. The resulting musical theme continues until the one minute 6 second position of the mix. After which time there is a break/bridge where the drum pattern leaves the mix leaving the bassline and pads behind for a a 'moment of reflection' for the listener. This works well but I wonder if the bassline leaving too would have enhanced thsi moment. Anyway after the return of the percussion, then drum pattern at the 1 minute 13 second position of the mix a new series of faster acid bass techno lead enter the mix. The result is a more exciting theme to the composition which works well to the two minute mark. From this point despite the slight over use (but not too bad this time) of a 'whale' sound effect, the bass is actually dropped at last resulting in a a very dreamy mellow moment when the pad and percussion duet, and the musical ideas get better and better. When the new layer build begins for the conclusion at around two minutes 48 seconds starting with the alternative 'angrier' sounding bassline, the listener is brought into the realm of Vangelis sci fi techno. All musical ideas from earlier make 'appearances' again but this time with more thought. There is a new whistle/flute lead sequence to add energy and drive the mix from moment the three minute 24 seconds position to the 4:04 position (may be a little long but worked alright). When the whistle leaves the mix there is a slow 'break down' leaving the pad to finish the mix. My score is 9.5 out of 10, nice work.

HEY I KNOW WE ARE IN THE YEAR 2010 BUT LETS GET SIGNED!!! WHO IS WITH ME???

US2K Review: This mix has the potential to score 10 out of 10 because the structure, vocals, and hook melody lines, breaks, drops of the drums when needed etc. after 49 seconds are excellent. It remiinds me of old skool electro/tech house. The mix is ruined in my opinion by a crash that has way too much presence and loudness in the mix at times especially during the introduction, it threatens to spoil flow of a great mix. Also I like the wind and sound effects but yet again, the same ones are repeated too much at the early part of the mix. Please accept this as a review as I have a massive backlog of reviews to do. My final score is 8 out of 10, despite what I have said which is critical, other than that this is one of your best mixes for ages.
