Damn, i'm way behind on posting my new tracks..

https://soundcloud.com/lwj/lwj-off-session
https://soundcloud.com/lwj/lwj-never-remind-me
https://soundcloud.com/lwj/lwj-parrot
https://soundcloud.com/lwj/lwj-melt

And here's a mix of a whole bunch of recent tracks.
https://soundcloud.com/lwj/lwj-mix001

@mods, is it okay if I keep using this topic for new tracks or do they really need to be individual topics?

I think the mods would actually prefer if people would post all their music in one thread rather than have hundreds littering this sub forum. Certainly would make it easier to find things. But either way it doesn't really matter as long as the posts are relevant to this sub forum. And posting your music is certainly relevant.

I'll try to get to some of these over the course of the week. That's the downside to posting a ton of tracks at once. Really makes it difficult for people to listen to everything. I try to space mine out at least a day apart. I mean there are only so many hours in the day and we all have our own things we need to attend to. I guess what I'm trying to say is don't expect a lot of feedback.

I think these one track topics aren't interesting at all.
-"Dude, you hi-hat is too loud"
-"I know"
-"Cheers"

It doesn't fit how I work. I make a lot of tracks, really fast... so they're pretty varied.
Make a jam one day and if it's good, polish it into a track the next. It doesn't always work out like that, but that's what I aim for. I'm getting better at it too. I remix and recycle a lot of my own stuff too. So with a single topic you get a much better sense of that.. and hopefully some more interesting feedback as well. I'm gonna self-release most of this soon, just working out how to promote it, getting artwork for it and so on.

So you're right, it isn't gonna do much now.. but once people see this topic come back every few weeks, and it contains literally hours and hours of good music and bad comedy, it'll be entertaining, right?

Take it from me, it's not that entertaining. You'll find out.

Really enjoyed the first track. Good sound design, nice bounce, and enough little variations to keep it interesting.

SC followed :tu;

Thanks man, that one is actually mostly based on a preset in TRK01 so it never feels like it's really my track :-/ People like it though, I should probably make it a free download or something.

Decided to just pick out something at random so queued up "Parrot."

Well, that was certainly different. I'm not sure what to make out of it but it sure didn't sound like anything I'm used to hearing around here except maybe for some of Vurt's stuff. But his is even stranger, for the most part.

Definitely an interesting listening experience.

Haha, I'll take that..
Parrot is I guess what you'd get if you ask me to produce a hiphop record.. what do you mean you guys can't rap to this?
The stuff in the waterworks playlist is a bit more regular sounding. 4:4 beats and more cohesive vibe.

Thanks for the nice comments guys.
Here’s a new one I’m working on:
https://m.soundcloud.com/lwj/lwj-flood-basin

Not quite satisfied with it though. I don’t like the snare that comes in and basically the whole second part is probably gonna gonna get cut ;)
