Nyt cover

Efter mailen fra El, kan jeg jo godt tænke mig at finde mit eget album på definitivejux.net som download eller noget, og i den anledning ville jeg jo gerne have det vildeste cover, så jeg gik i old school mode og lavede et nyt cover og sendte til manden...

After the mail from El-P, I had ideas about finding the album on his site as a download or whatelse and in the occasion I wanted to represent the album in a very def way, so I went into old school mode and created a new cover and mailed it to the head honcho..

El P Mail


Jeg er jo def jux fan til banet, og da jeg sidder og arbejder på remix albummet med El P, måtte jeg altså skrive til El inde på mypace og fortælle om albummet - Jeg vedhæftede et link til et af numrene og han svarede sgu igen :
yo,
this is surprisingly dope. did you do the whole album?
peace, el
Og jeg har allerede skrevet tilbage med en håndfuld numre og en melding om, at hvis han kan bruge det, så er jeg den beærede og takker jatak - Mon ikke far her kunne tænke sig at blive en jukie ?


I'm a def jux fan to the bone, and when working on the remix album with El, I had to write ham on myspace and tell about the project - I linked a track to him and he did write back.. So now I've answered back with a fistfull of tracks and a approval to use the track, should he like it enough..Dont you know me well enough to know, that becoming a jukie would be a true come true...

ARP Odyssey

Åh hvilket vidunder... Jeg sidder jo indhyldet i wave filer og prøver at overbevise mig selv og andre om, at jeg kan beherske musik instrumenter. Og samtidigt må jeg jo se nærmere på, hvilke maskiner jeg har involveret i dette eksperiment og her er ARP fantastisk - Jeg lavede to numre med den igår, og jeg når lige at tænke på en stemning eller en lyd, så spytter den ud og gør sit til at få det til at virke... Skønne maskine.. Og hvor har jeg dog savnet Roland TR 707'eren - Den har jo både udseendet og lyden med sig.... Jeg har en bedre fornemmelse omkring "Before I sleep" nu, hvor jeg har fået stiftet bekendskab med maskinerne...

Oh such wonder - I'm in the middle of waves and are trying to convince myself and others, that I can control these musical instruments. I've got to see and feel these machines involved in this remix dogme experiment and the ARP is magical. I don't even have to think about the mood and vibe, before the machine does its thing and perform with great finess and how I've missed the 707 with the look and the sounds. I got a much safer feeling about the "Before I sleep" project now...

The BillPrint


Så er den endelig færdig og jeg har ladet KevinNottingham have premieren på den, siden at hans side har givet mig så megen lyst og inspiration til at lave mere og bedre remix..

Så her er så : The BillPrint
It's finally done and I've had KevinNottingham do the premier since his site is the main reason for the inspiration and energy it has given me to do more and better remixes.
So press the link above and enjoy..

“We’ve seen Jay Z in many forms with his Black Album and American Gangster, but I wanted a more lounge version of Sean Carter, so I let him do his thing together with Bill Withers, the funky man and the result is at hand - This is the men’s club with cigars and bourbon in thick glasses, this is two smooth cats grooving to Bill’s tunes and Jay’s poetry.Be still and chill, my brothas, because it’s time to start the show with Billprint.”

Before I sleep


Når nu jeg var igang, så har jeg udfordret mig selv med et sæt dogme regler, som skulle få mig til at tænke anderledes og få nogle ting frem , og jeg fik en ide...


Tænk hvis El-Ps album "I'll sleep when you're dead" var lavet i 1988 ? Jeg har sat mig selv i den situation, at jeg skal lave remix albummet "Before I sleep - Remix anno 1988" og være begrænset af de muligheder, der var dengang.. Jeg må bruge min computer,Acid Pro og El-Ps vokaler, men alle instrumenter og fyldstykker til albummet skal være fra før 1988. Det betyder at jeg ikke kan sample løs, men skal benytte mig af Roland 707 og 808, Moog, Korg og en hel andre spændende ting til at lave remix albummet, og det er en udfordring... Og her er en smagsprøve..

Since Im in the mood, I've challenged myself with a set of dogme rules, which is supposed to bring some new ways of producing and would bring out the artist and I had an idea..

What if El-P's album "I'll sleep when you're dead" were made in 1988 ? I've put myself in that situation to recreate El's album as a remix "Before I sleep - Remix anno 1988" and be limited to only use the instruments and equipment from 1988. I can't sample ulimited, I'm reduced to vintage drum machines like 808 and 707, Moog, Korg and other stuff and hopefully create a remix album, as if it was made in 1988, and that's the challenge, which with succes could be branded Remix Dogme..
Here's a sneak..

Remix dogme

Remix Dogme er en niche indenfor musikproduktion, udviklet efter de gældende dogme95 filmregler, men er her udviklet af Kasper Isbjerg Beckmann for at skulle inspirere produceren til at præstere sit ypperste og lade kunstneren fremstå i forhold til produktionen.
Lars von Trier og Thomas Vinterberg udviklede på dette grundlag ti "kyskhedsløfter" "The Vow of Chastity" for Dogme95, og de er her korrigeret til musikproduktionens verden.

1. Optagelserne skal ske på musikprogram( Protools,fruit loops, whatever..).
2. remixet og mixet skal foregå på samme program, uden tilknytning til store analog og digitale mastereringsmaskiner.
3. Der må indgå samplinger og spillede instrumenter i produktionen, dog må samplingen ikke overskygge kunstneren, der remixes.
4. Der må ikke bruges samplinger, der er udgivet senere end den bærende kunstner ( f.eks må der ikke bruges Notorious Big samplinger på en Frank Sinatra sang, men Frank må gerne samples på en biggie )
5. Der må ikke bruges plugins, der stammer fra andet program end valgte produktionssystem.
6. Sangen må fra producentens side ikke indeholde lydeffekter, der ikke er relevante for sangen.
7. Alle samplinger skal oplyses i kommentarerne, og det færdige resultat skal findes i mp3 format.
8. Der skal findes et tema/rød tråd i produktionen, dvs. at vælger man f.eks. Jay med James Brown, skal alle produktioner indeholde begge kunstnere, men være i henhold til overstående regler
9. Der må ikke være udgifter ved produktionen, dvs. strøm til maskine er indforstået, men der må ikke hyres en lydtekniker eller en DJ til at supplere - Man skal selv stå for produktet.
10. Produktionen må ikke bruges til salg, det drejer sig udelukkende om promovering - Skulle det have interesse fra den udøvende kunstner at udgive produktet, skal det forefindes på skrift inden videre fremstilling.

Remix Dogme is a challenge in music productions, originally developed for film makers to let the actors and acting stand out from the media, but here it's been rewritten by Kasper Isbjerg Beckmann to inspire the producer to upper his performance and let the artist stand out stronger compared to the production.
Lars von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg developed this term 'Dogme' in 95 and made ten rules "The Vow of Chastity" for Dogme95, og again rewritten for musiv biz.
1. Recordings must be done on a music software program.
2. remix and mix must be done in the same program, and no connections to big expensive mastering machinery.
3. Sampling and played instruments are allowed in the production, but must now overshadow the artist being remixed.
4. Samples published after the remixed artist, are not allowed ( ex. Biggie samples on a Frank Sinatrs song, but Sinatra is allowed on a biggie song. )
5. Plugins from other systems than your recording program aren't allowed.
6. The remix can't contain inrelevant sound effects from the producer's side.
7. All samples must be submitted in comments and the finished remix must be avaiable in mp3 format.
8. There must be a given theme in the remix, if it is a part of an theme album, so if the remix is to be submitted to a Jay Z/James Brown album, the remix must contain James Brown samples, and in order with #4.
9. There must be no Expenses in the production, electricity are not a part of the dogme rules, but a studio technician or a DJ are not allowed. You are the responsible for the production.
10. The remix are not for sale, it's only for promotion - Should the remixed artist publish the remix, a contract is to be completed before further actions.

Jeg har i lang tid ville lave noget med Jay's BluePrint, og jeg har haft Bill Withers i tankerne, men har ikke startet projektet før nu... Nu ruller det, så jeg kan godt leake lidt fra albummet... Her er coveret og en smagsprøve...
