Long time no see..

Aah, it's been a while.

Had a month long break from everything related to my music and what not. But I'm back, and this time I'll make sure to stick around for some time.

So anyway, keep listening to my stuff and good things will happen!  Peace!!

Facebook ----> Google+

As I wrote on my facebook earlier.. I'm really considering to remove my Facebook account, or at least merge it with my Fan-page so that I don't need to keep on track with whatever. Besides, Facebook, or Marc Zuckerberg + team, are updating it too much and the past updates have only ruined the website more and more.

Google+ on the other hand is still, according to me, way better and that's why I'm also gonna spend more time there and on Twitter than I will on Facebook. It has been great but now it's just too much..

Anyway, I'll see yah around!

DJ-M - The Puppet Master (Video)

Puppet Master by DJ-M from IrascibleOne on Vimeo.



This music-video was created by the hands of the Admin back at DarkScarab as a request from me. Right before I released my EP I asked him if he could make this video for me so I had something to show off the EP with instead of just the music itself. He accepted and like you see worked his magic on it. Even though it is simple, I still get amazed every time I watch it. It's epic! Anyway, I just want to thank him, the Admin of DS AKA IrascibleOne, for this awesome video of his. Thank you!

Darkscarab is a website about 3D-graphical art and anything related to it. It has not got a huge amount of active members, but those who are there on a daily basis are more then enough to help you out (Only with Blender 3D though). The reason why I am am a member is simple; I love 3D, I love to play around with it and the people there are very kind and forgiving when it comes to "suckingness" and constant spamming with stupid "noob" questions. It's thanks to them I have managed to evolve at the pace that I have.

So, 2 flies in one blow right? Thanks IrascibleOne and the DS community for the support and the video! May you all shine upon the stars!!

Over and out!

Adam 'NovaCore' Persson - Swedish Video Blogger

This is not me!




Okey.. Sooo, this is a friend of mine, Adam (Aka NovaCore) and he's simply sharing bits and pieces of his everyday life through videos (and sometimes plain text), but mostly videos. Some of you might not even understand what he says and I don't really care about translating the video for you either simply because it's not mine and I'm lazy, live with it!

Anyway, Adam makes music just like I do but for him it's just a simply hobby or whatever you want to call it, nd for me it's my life. huge difference there!

Hope you all enjoy the video-log and if you do (and can read Swedish), then visit and follow his blog at: Adam 'NovaCore' Persson's Blog

Random Girl: "Do you like Justin Beiber?"
Me: "Uuh, no... ? O.o"
Random Girl: "What the hell is wrong with you?!!!!"
Me: "I'm straight."

Yeah, haters gonna hate! Weee!!

New Releases + Different Edits

Done and done! The Preview of my latest project is done! It's a full-length mix and I will only share it to some people.

This is my way of dealing with this.

Short Break = Over

Yepp, as the title says my break is over, my complete obsession with Need for Speed world is over, my non-music-producing period is finally over! And to actually kick start this new period of hardcore music producing I managed to make a sick beat and a tight bassline to it. And by that I mean; I have something new in progress!

Filler #1 - The Continuing of Filling

Just recently, I got so bored I started taking random quizzes on facebook and the one which I liked the most must've been this; "Which of the 7 elements are you".
Reason? Well, the Element I got of course!

Fire
You are passionet, and caring. You are easy to fall in love, and people tend to fall for you just the same. You are always warm to the touch. People feel safe in your arms, you have a temper, but you can get controll of it quickly. You are a fighter, and will stand up for your opinions. Your eyes are always full of passion and people tend to be drawn to them.

Filler #1

Soo.. Hello! Been spending most of my day outside in the sun, which was nice. I also brought my cellphone/mobile and took some nice photos just for fun, which was also very nice. And just recently me and my brother went out and recorded some birds while they were attacking us (?!). We wanted to "experiment" and it all went haywire when we got too close to their nest..

Oh by the way.. On Twitter there was this guy who posted my Soundcloud link on a newspaper site and used it as a reference for the soundcloud premium member ship thing for talented indie-artists! Awesome, right? So, I had to check it out and of course.. share it!

Anyway, here are some pictures just for fun.. And filling..

Google+ VS. Facebook

Finally, the "trial" is here! Google has finally launched their test-version of the so called "New Facebook". And yes, I am a lucky member of this awesome work. It's so easy to use, it's easy to find those you know and want to share stuff with. The grouping system is much much smoother, you can edit your profile and everything that gos with it with ease and so much more! I really don't know what else to say than this is for sure, the new facebook. When this get's big-ger. People are gonna love this the way they first loved facebook years ago. Google, if you read this, you made a great job with this and I look forward to share it with everyone I know!

Keep it coming!

Puppet Master

The title says it all.

When I was fixing the last details on my latest track, 'Puppet Master' I came up with this awesome idea for clothing on stage. I can't really explain everything about the outfit more than the mask part.. Yes, I will wear a mask. And I will also have several other masks hanging next to my right thigh and on my back, right on the left shoulder. All of this just to add an effect to live-performing. I hate it when other musicians within the electronic genre don't use something just to make them look a bit special than they would do on a regular day. For example; Daft Punk - They are dressed out as humanoid-robots. Deadmau5 - he's wearing this gigantic mouse head with over-sized ears. Those two are the only two I know of who actually dress up for a gig. I want to be a part of this dress-up before a gig thing, not because it looks awesome on stage but also because it kind of shows the artist, not the person, if you know what I mean. It's like, you are an actor you dress up to look like that particular character, and not yourself. The same goes for what I want in music. You dress up as your performer/entertainer/musical-character and not yourself. This is not a matter of "oh no I don't want people to stalk me on the streets" rather then a matter of just making the gigs more fun.

Well, I might be the only one who thinks like this but hey that's me and we are all different. Peace out!


New Track: Puppet Master

I've got a feeling!

There comes a time in every man, and woman's life where they will realize that some things are just worth fighting for!

I bet every musician, DJ, Producer etc. do what they do with a feeling, and not just cause they have to. I for one am like that. I create my tracks with feeling. Sure, they might not sound like much to some, but to those who know how to really feel the music it's more than just synths and kicks. It's something you love to listen to, something that makes you happy, something that creates a feeling inside. That feeling you get when you listen to what I have to offer, that is the feeling I use to create it.

This might sound very "old school" or even kind of "out there". But it's the truth. Not like judging a book by it's cover like plenty of people do when it comes to artists or famous people in general. I've been there, done that, and I know what it's like to be both the hater and hated. It sucks when you think about it. People judge too easily. Especially when it comes to music where the listener doesn't like what you provide and therefor starts hating not only your music but you, the maker, as well. I can't stop this, obviously haha, but I can at least try to make some people realize that it's really not the artist you should dislike no matter what type of music he, or she, makes. It's like hating a piece of apple-pie just because you hate the cook who made it. Or hating your next-door neighbor just because one of his/her relatives (sibling, parent, cousin..) is a moron. It's both wrong and shallow. And I don't really respect this, not that it matters to anyone, and I do definitely not accept this towards neither myself nor my friends who are in this business.

Yes I know, some people who actually are famous can also be jerks and that's something we all have to accept. But I guess they have a reason, I don't know.. But as far as I know they have no reason to be jerks towards their fans. Those who support them 24/7. And I really have no clue how some of them can't even smile when looking at one of their fans, without having to force it. It's not that hard to smile, really, and everyone knows that.

And before anyone goes on with; "uh you don't know shit blah blah blah", please, take a moment to think about this and then tell me that I don't know shit about this. Sure, it's just a random thought I came up with during one of my sleepless nights just recently. It's not like it's illegal to share your thoughts and neither is it illegal to even share how one among the people feel when this type of things happens. To you, the listener, this might seem like something that we take with ease (and by "us" I mean the artists, the makers, the creators of what you listen to everyday). But we don't, at least not all of us. Some do, and that's their "problem", or something, but I for one do not take this with ease. Yes, of course I love when people write to me and tell me what they think but when they write to me telling me that I'm a bad person because of what I do they cross the line. I don't go raging on them, haha, but I do get kind of sad within when I see what the world has become. Musicians and their fans are no longer what they used to be.

This was just a random thought and I felt like sharing it with the rest of the cyberspace just because I can and because I want people to get an insight on things they don't normally encounter. Not everyone get fan-mails with complaints. Anyway, have a nice one and keep up the good work - with whatever you do, sports, music, a job whatever.

Good morning!

//It's 06:35 in the morning and I really need to get myself a cup of coffee and some toast. I just wanted you to know//

FL Studio goes i-System

(Link to the news page is provided at the bottom of this post!)

As it turns out, Image-Line has surprised their users once more with this new, yet very promising, "to-go" version of their music production software; Fruity Loops. Yes, I'm talking about the Fruity Loops Mobile version, but it's only for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. So to bad fellow Android users, our version is still under development according to the image-line news!

Anyway, with this tool you basically do what you do in FL on a PC but on a much smaller screen, less tools and not as huge variety of samples. To fit in a phone you can't really include 100+ beats and over 200 synth-presets. It's just not possible, yet. So they managed to chop it off, make a compact, easy-to-use version of it that fits an iPhone screen. How is this possible you may ask? You see.. Fruity Loops, like any other music production tool is not really that much a deal when it comes to the size of your screen, but more when it comes to the sound and memory you can utilize from your computer. Sure, this may sound strange since the iPhone is not THAT powerful but yeah. They made their first version for iPhone for a reason I guess and all we could do is hope for the best and basically cheer for updates and coming news about "our" version, the Android one.

And about the sound.. I'm still thinking that this might turn out to be a very powerful, not too sound-demanding tool for your smart-phone but at the same time I'm also thinking; "how do they manage to fix the sound when it comes to the bass, synths, effects etc.." And I'm still worried that this might not work as good as it could, but still working really nice! I mean, not everyone carries around a pair of headphones while they I don't know, sitting around in a park enjoying the sun-rise. And I also believe that headphones might come quite in handy when it comes to the creation of a track on the go. I know I can't create a track on my computer (MacBook Pro) without my pair of headphones while I'm "on the go" simply because the speakers can't handle my kind of needs when it comes to the sound, and neither can the iPhone. But as I said in my facebook-post; "Who am I to judge?". Great job doing this, image-line and I sure hope it'll turn out to be almost as much of a success as the PC version of FL is!

Cudos!

No more, no less.

Written and published 22 June, 2011.


5 years ago, I had a dream.

A dream of reaching out to people through something I never expected myself to be doing. A dream of making people enjoy electronical signals sent to the braind through various speakers and headphones all over the globe. It's also known as; Music. I began living that dream thanks to and old friend of mine, who told me about this amazing software where you could create your own beats, melodies, basslines and what not. I tried it, of course, and I fell in love with it.

3 months later or so I began to show what I had done so far. And of course to a "rgular person" what I did sucked. And it did in fact suck, haha, but to me at that moment I didn't care much for how good it sounded but how far I had come from being this regular teenager without any thoughts of what to with my life. To me, it sounded like a dream come true. I had made my very own track. Of course I didn't make a huge deal out of it cause in my head I had all these crazy melodies going on and on and on and I wanted to make them real, so bad, and I did. This time though, I told people about it, showed them my work and they were amazed. Not at the fact that the track sonded a lot better than my first one but at the fact that I, a normal guy, made that track without any knowledge of music producing what so ever. I was happy!

A year had passed and the thrill went silent. People didn't care about my music anymore. The buzz of having a producer at school, in the same class, sure made them talk but it was nothing more then a; "hey are you that guy who made that track? - Yeah? - Nice job!". I didn't stop making music though, cause that was at the point impossible for me to even imagine. Music was my life. Later on, I started to produce tracks more often, give them to people at school and listen to the feedback. It was both good, and bad, of course. But even though the critique wasn't what I had in mind it kind of made me think about whether or not I should either change my style or just quit. I tried different genres, and failed. I then lost the passion cause what I did was no longer entertaining to the people around me. So yea, I stopped producing.

But then..

A friend of mine told me that my stuff were awesome and that shouldn't give up no matter what, so I did as he said and got back at making tracks. This time not to please someone else, but to share how I expressed my feelings. I was happy, I made a "happy" track. I felt like going crazy on a dance floor, I made a dance-friendly hard-kiciking track. And these feeling-based tracks are to some the best I have done, and to others good but not really "up there". To me, the critique didn't matter at all to me because I was sharing my feelings. Not trying to please.

a year after that, I decided to publish my work on several communities. Sure, I had some tracks uploaded on youtube but that was my old, beginner projects. Now I had found the source to good music which was feelings and therefor I decided to register on a community called Elektrozon. This website was a free, music-hosting, website with a blog tool and a fan-based system where people uploaded what they did, gave pointers to others, gained friends and shared their passion. I for one, registered to share my passion and gain friends, which I did and I still talk to some of them today. Anyway, Elektrozon became the hub for my music and all my friends started to spread the word about my stuff. It was amazing. Then people I never talked to at school started recognizing me telling me my work was great. At this time I felt like my dream was once back, I was entertaining. Not on stage, but through electronical signals sent to the brain.. Music!

This time, the buzz had a living spark which never died out, and it still hasn't died out. They still recognize my stuff, some even listen to it once in a while and I'm still sharing my art of sound, my electronical signals, my music! And I have never, ever, felt as happy as I am now knowing that people all over the world appreciate what I do, even though it's not like the stuff DJ-icons such as Tiesto, deadmau5 or Daft Punk does. But it's mine. I can call it my own. I can present it on a stage and say; "I made this!!". That feeling, is priceless.

Today, I build my tracks based on my favorite artists work when it comes to beat, track-building and general mixing. I'm not a DJ, I'm not a professional, and I'm not famous like the big ones are..

But I'm a regular small-town guy, living my dream. No more, no less.
