A double track titled 'DigiDown / Acid Daylight'. I broke two promises of putting 'Sector 21' out, it is around half complete at the moment. The truth is life has been very difficult since August, the last three months being the deepest. I have had the mind repeatedly being in depressed states, the people I mix with are almost no help, family members in my case, and without real friends I would call friends due to introversion. I am practically the loner inside a widely known past period.
'DigiDown' as part of the name suggests started off as a breakdown, and at about the same time, I was creating realistic drum sounds using a few bass VSTs and a Triple Oscillator synth to make the hats, the rest were no brainers in terms of where they fit in the composition.
For a few months, I tested deeper of the structures, techniques and styles of both Hardstyle, Industrial, Metalcore and other Metal Influences. As with many tracks, I improvised most of the time constructing it, and second to it is the better thought out layout comprehension after 2 years of making music.
With 'Acid Daylight', the music process was a similar case to 'DigiDown', as I almost did the entire song with a clear head, still with the few mind blocks on and off. You could notice either right off the bat or after several listens of the infamous acid synths inside the track, for me it is those sounds which warrant greater play repetition. And don't get crazy, enjoy listening to the acid synths without the need of going nuts.
A progression section between 1:38 to 2:14 took more time than the rest of the composition due to small adjustments to the reverberation inside, while still retaining a distinctive environment that some can recall in any type of media product involving countdowns or emergency alerts. I also placed some sections involving manipulating the Gabber kick with dry/wet Reverb adjustments, it may scare some if it's their first few times hearing it, it is then up to the listener if as said before, worth listening to the sections again or not. Another of my favorite sections is when the drums go blast, and after a brief while the Gabber kick fades in and comes out with reverberation to end the track, and did the best to balance the distortion.
I am starting to get to the point in my music career that I should begin to open and share 'Aaron of Live 12' further, as I have exclusively had it available to very rare users whom have either accidently or intentionally found me on Soundcloud, Newgrounds or here on Bandcamp.
Either you enjoy this or not, it is meant to be an aggressive two track release.
