LIMBO EP/Dreamstate EP series

Posted by ActualElf - April 25th, 2018

What's up Newgrounds,


I just finished and released the "LIMBO" EP last night/this morning, it's been a lot of fun making the tracks and the approach of releasing each track as I made them was really enjoyable but kept me on task and focused as I couldn't allow myself to leave a big chunk of time between installments. This approach also leaves me feeling like I could add to the release in the near future if I make any more tracks I feel would be best suited there, the feeling f having atleast finished it in my eyes takes a lot of pressure off of myself and now it can become something I can further in future if I'd like to.

The tracks are really cool, each one was my new best work at the time I wrote each of them, DEVIATION is filled with aggressive bass-house inspired patches but has my slightly darker take on music with me taking what I liked from the genre and twisting it in my direction. RIDDIM is an aggressive, low and heavy groove track inspired by a lot of the tracks I've been listening to recently that's all based around aggressive sound design. Finally, BLOSSOM is a future bass inspired track that has massive chord stacks and lots of LFO work, making use of space and dynamic changes. I'm really proud of how the tracks turned out, there are one or two tweaks I would make and may make in the future but for now I am happy with the release.

Dreamstate EP Series -


In regards to the Dreamstate series, a collection of ambient music which is made in the process of me noting down my ebb and flow with poor mental health in music, currently housing Dreamstate and Ethereality. I hope and plan to continue to make more, mainly for myself, as I really enjoy putting them together as a lot of the creative process involves destroying and breaking audio to create a mix between a beautiful sound and a haunting one.

I've been working on tracks in the background for the next release, currently looking to be a far more relaxed and calming collection of music in comparison to the two earlier releases. The series is a set of EPs that I'm proud of regardless of their reception with listeners, as they are so tightly nailed into my mind as individual periods of time in my life over the past couple of months, something I'll be able to go back to and re-live through the tracks, which I guess is kind of the point of the concept that the EPs have become.

Just gotta say thanks for that elaborate response, really makes it worth the while to review! :) Congrats on the release, and enjoying the gritty energy in this too. The 'ey yo' in W.M.B.B. has me really wanting to run in with some double-time verses there haha, awesome energy. Is that you? Samples? Good stuff.

Hey man thank you!

I was checking out some of your acapellas after your review, you've a strong pulse and pull out lots of rhythmically catchy groupings in your verses. You should definitely dive into producing tracks to write verses to, would be great to hear.

I also caught the track "Better Than The Book" that you were on in 2016, some of the verses had a tone close to Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park which I'd say was a pretty big compliment.

The vocals in "What my Bitch Bought" are sampled from a really old MURDA MOOK vs Loaded Lux rap battle that I love, lots of really catchy and thought out lines in that in case you happen to check it out.

Hey thanks! :D Hoping to do more of that too. As for the BTTB track Linkin Park's a major inspiration for both of us so I'd think both music and verses may have some influence thereof. :) Cool to hear that shows! And good to know about the samples. Will definitely check that out.

Wish I had a credit card xD

Ahaha all my music's free so honestly don't feel bad for grabbing a download if you want one, I really just enjoy letting people listen and own it if they like it <3
