Beatport Top Picks for February

I was asked to make a “The Horrorist” chart for Beatport and so I did. Here’s 10 tracks I love and having “spinning” in my Traktor set up right now. If these tracks don’t make your feet tap there maybe something wrong with you.

“The current Beatport catalog is made up of more than 700,000 tracks, 160,000 releases.” – Wikipedia

Magda charts a Joyless Pleasure remix

I’ve been really pleased with all the remixes people have been sending me for Joyless Pleasure. I’m still waiting for a few but Maurice is already well into the album artwork. I’m keeping most of the mixes unheard for now but one of the mixes is out of the bag and happily already charting. Everyone knows Magda. She’s one of the big one so I’m pleased to post she’s got Miro’s remix of Hostage at number 3 on her most recent chart.

“Miro’s creative sound architecture shines in a variety of interpretations, living between romantic gloom, absurd musicality and rhythm mathematics that could be a Stanley Kubrick version of modern dance music whilst retaining functionality. His mostly dense assemblies enrapture the fantasy thursty listener, who can expect episodic surreal surprises. His deepest passion for detail and visionary audio adventures can be heard regularly on his label Lazerslut and has been unveiled on labels such as Klickhaus, Harthouse, Tic Tac Toe Records and several others.”

Propellerhead Patch Chart from Oliver Chesler.

A few weeks ago Propellerhead asked me to send them my favorite Patches that come with Reason. I picked my top five and wrote a little about why each sound tickles my brain in a happy way. To view my choices: click here

“Artist Patch Charts. Go-to sounds of the pros. Ever wondered what the bass sound in that track was? How they made the harp glissandos in that movie, the shimmering strings in that commercial, or why the snare in that track sounds so familiar? We did. And that’s why we’re presenting our favorite producer’s and artist’s top sounds.” – Propellerheads.se

You can also see Patch Charts for Orlando Voorn, Adam Fielding, Nat Motte, Steven Drozd, Bentley Jones, Ryland Blackinton, Richard Barbieri, Jesse Stern, Dan Silver and others here: http://www.propellerheads.se/substance/patch-charts/index.cfm

My new single is #2 on the German Club Chart.

German Club Chart - The Horrorist

I’m not going to talk too much about my own music on this blog. People can find plenty about me all over the internet under The Horrorist. But news like this is fun to share so here you have it.The Horrorist - 13 Dobermans

The song is called 13 Dobermans and it has remixes by The Advent, Die Krupps, Felix Krocher and Gabriel Palomo. It’s released on a big German alternative/goth label called Out of Line Music.

The song was recorded completely “in the box”. Some of the plug-ins included Audiorealism’s Bassline Pro, D-16 Nepheton, Izotope Ozone and Wavearts Power Suite.
