Welcome to the Goon Music Megathread! I was a little surprised we didnít have a thread for sharing music other than the ďPost Your SoundcloudĒ thread in Musicianís Lounge, so I decided I would volunteer to put one together. I have noticed that we have quite a few goons that make music and wanted to give people a place to share their artist page(s) and new music, as well as a single place for people to find goon music projects.

If you would like to share your social media accounts and/or links to your music, please post them in this thread and I will add them to the OP. Include your artist name and a brief description of your style of music so I can include that as well. In addition, please feel free to post any new releases or content in this thread. I will only update the OP with links to your page(s) but this thread should also be the place where you let us know of anything new.

I donít want to be very strict to start off on what content can be posted in this thread. It doesnít have to be completed songs. You can certainly feel free to post a youtube channel where you noodle around on synths or make tutorial videos. Obviously, it should be music-related but it can certainly be something other than a finished song. I did organize the artist pages/links into two sections. One is for goons making full songs and albums while the other is for anything else (jam sessions, synth noodling, demoing new gear, etc).

If you have any questions or suggestions, or would like me to update your links/descriptions please feel free to send me a PM.

Finally took some time to record a new track with the modular to join the new thread!

https://soundcloud.com/gautier-gillon/modular-mayhem

This is cool as hell dude, awesome work. I'm curious how long it takes to patch something like that on a modular system.

I uploaded my most recent release to YouTube, and am going to start posting more content there since learning that it is the #1 place people go for new music. Would definitely appreciate any support as I try to get this channel up and running. The song below is a collaboration with a rapper I met through a reddit thread, going for a classic boom-bap sound.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7vIdDS6ssc

I am editing a second video for the channel today and its going to be a series very similar to the Rhythm Roulette series on Mass Appeal's channel. Basically I go to a record store, blindfold myself, and pick out three records that I will try to sample from to make a hip-hop beat. The twist I added is that my wife is going to pick out a fourth album, having little knowledge of records and what is good for sampling. The records I ended up picking blindfolded were less than exciting to sample from, but I think I ended up making something pretty cool.

Figure I'll throw my hat in the ring. I have a few projects running but only one "EP" released, under the name Vapid Koi. I guess you'd call it lo-fi?

https://vapidkoi.bandcamp.com/releases

The story behind it is I had the progression for the first song done, showed my partner and he recommended I work on it. At that time I ran out of anti-psychotics and wasn't able to get more for a while. So I slowly began to suffer a schizophrenic breakdown. I worked on each track sequentially, with the first track being done first and so on. As the EP progresses you can tell I started to have an obsession with textures and repeating the same thing over and over.

Overall I am proud of what I accomplished, especially since it is THE sound of a mental breakdown for me. I do not ever want to go through it again though.

Updated OP with your info. I'm really digging this EP dude, it has tons of feeling and the textures are very interesting. In fact, I would definitely be interested in sampling some of your stuff to make some beats if you are ok with that. Would certainly give you proper credit and if I end up releasing anything would work out a deal with ya.

And thanks 2DCAT.

I would love to work with some stems. I honestly think I could make a beat for every song on that project but let's start out with stems for "For Never, Amen" and "Enter Stage Left" if that isn't too much trouble. You have some really great textures in there. E-mail address below.

I realized I am terrible about uploading my beats to SoundCloud and am forcing myself to post stuff once a week even if it isn't "finished". Here is an original beat I wrote and I recorded a lot of the instrumentation live. I was pretty happy with how it turned out considering I mostly make sample-based stuff. Just picked up a Fender Squier JBass and have been trying to add some funky bass lines to my productions. I think this one didn't turn out half bad considering I have only been playing for a couple months.

Hey dude, I apologize. I could have sworn I posted a reply with some feedback on this because I checked it out last week but looks like I never hit submit. Thanks a lot for the feedback on my track, it is much appreciated. I am really going to try and stick to one beat a week and am actually finishing up a second track with this rapper from Canada I have been working with. I should have it done this week and will definitely share it.

I really enjoyed this track, the progression is really nice and hits you right in the feels. The style reminds me a little bit of an artist named Jai Wolf, and I mean that as a big compliment. I also really enjoy how the track isn't cluttered at all, but you have done a great job filling up the space. Honestly made me realize my mixes need a lot of work.

I have put about 16 beats together and am planning on releasing them as a "beat tape" once I finish the mixing/mastering. I wanted to share one of them for some feedback on the mix, but didn't know if this was the best place to share it. There doesn't seem to be a thread in ML for reviewing tracks that gets any traffic but let me know if you'd rather see this kinda thing elsewhere.

There are some things I think could be improved on this mix, but not sure if I am being objective since I have heard it so many times.

I think the overall mix sounds pretty good, especially the drums and bass. My critique would be about the piano and toms sounding a little too quantized for my tastes.

That's funny because the piano is my friend playing live and I didn't quantize it at all, haha. I did move a couple notes that sounded off with the rest of the notes so perhaps that made it sound a little too quantized. I could play around with the swing a bit and could definitely add some variation to the tom roll. Thanks man!

In preparation for releasing a full project of beats, I needed to submit at least one track through Distrokid so they could create an artist profile for me on streaming services. That allows me to then use Spotify for Artists and submit my stuff to playlists. I was planning on releasing this beat I made, but am having some second thoughts because this is what I do (second guess everything). I am trying to balance putting out a quality release with spending too much time on this one and not just moving on. This is one of the first beats I made where the music is all original (no samples). I played and recorded the piano, keys, and electric bass on this myself and I think my concern is that it is apparent that I am at best an amateur player of all three.

It's a great feeling hearing everything you create yourself personally. You did good here. Be proud of it and get it out there.

I really appreciate this man, thanks. I know I am far from the only artist to experience crippling self-doubt at times, but the encouragement means a lot. I went and checked out a bunch of your recent stuff and I am really impressed. You have a great ear for melodies and harmonies and the mixes sound really full, but with a nice range of dynamics.

The trouble I am having on mixing is getting my kick drum to knock without it just redlining all over the place. When I look at my waveforms, the kick is usually peaking a few dB higher than anything else, but that seems to be the only way I can get it to hit even close to as hard as my reference tracks.

This is wonderful. Expertly done jazz-hop vibes. Reminds me a lot of this guy Joey Pecoraro. You should absolutely do a full instrumental album in this vein. I'd love to hear some of the wonderful grit on your drum sounds in that piano. Maybe tape saturation?

Thanks a lot man! I really appreciate the kind words. Its funny you mention adding some grit to the piano, because I remember trying a couple distortion plugins and not being satisfied with what I was getting and then kinda leaving it the way it was. I am going to experiment with some tape saturation on a few other tracks that are in the same vein that I plan to put on an instrumental album.

I checked out the first few tracks on your album and really enjoyed it. Went through a big Sufjan phase in High School and this brought be right back to that. Going to check out the rest when I get a chance this weekend.

Tomorrow I am heading to a studio in Oakland, CA to finish producing and mixing a few funk/soul tracks I have been working on with an artist friend of mine. Can't wait to share some of them because I am really happy with how they are shaping up.

Took a little while to finally get this released, it was my first time clearing a sample through Tracklib.com and I definitely learned a lot for next time.

On a roll lately. Another one for the album in progress.

https://soundcloud.com/tom-pellegri...17/near-and-far

Added some lead to this one.

Would love for you to check this one out. This was one of those "off the cuff" tracks that just popped in to my head and I had to lay it down. These kinds of tracks are usually some of my best work as they are already 90% in my head.

Just checked it out and again, your ability to layer many different sounds and have them all fit together perfectly is incredibly impressive. I think the only thing I was missing from this track was a little more movement / automation. It stays at relatively the same levels throughout and I felt like it could benefit from some changes in dynamics since it is over 5 mins. But that is just personal preference and overall it's great stuff.

Just released a new instrumental on Spotify and other streaming platforms. I am particularly proud of this one because I played and recorded live piano, bass, and electric guitar for it. It also came together a lot quicker than most of my tracks and has inspired me to play more instruments on my tracks.

Thanks a lot for the compliment. Layering has always been something that comes very easily to me and I like making complicated tracks.

As for the cadence of the track, it's going with the theme of the album "Baking for Stoners". I am making trippy tracks that you can zone out to. Each track on this one is purpose built with my youth in mind of getting a bit high with friends and just throwing on some trippy mellow poo poo and spacing out.

I had ideas for this track to take it further but I maintained control of my impulses and stuck with what it became.

Good stuff, and I think you nailed what you were going for exactly in that case.

Do we have a thread kicking around here to deal with marketing music because I loving suck at it.

We don't have a thread like this as far as I know. I am also struggling a bit with trying to market my music and grow my audience. But one thing I have read over and over is that you need to be consistent with releasing content on social media.

Hi all. Released another EP of weedy hip-hop instrumentals. Heavy on samples and the boom baps.

http://drumbeats.bandcamp.com

Enjoy!

edit:

PM me if you want a download code!

This is extremely my poo poo. I also make a lot of boombap beats with samples so its nice seeing someone else doing it really well. The overall production and mixing is really good man and your sampling/drums make me a bit jealous. What do you use to make beats?

This is a quick little sample-flip I did for a contest where we had to flip David Axelrod's "Holy Thursday". That track has almost infinite possibilities when it comes to sampling, but I ended up making something relatively simple and funky.

I like it man! Did you do the scratches on a table or w/a program or what? I have a nice pioneer CD-J Iíve used for scratches in the past but itís a pain to set up and have to burn poo poo to use so Iíve been casually keeping an eye out for something easier to work into my workflow.

Thanks! I did the scratches myself on my vinyl turntable + mixer and recorded directly into Ableton. Although I have to admit I recorded like 10 minutes of scratching to get a couple of bars that sounded halfway decent. I'm trying to practice scratching when I find time because I really like the texture it can add to beats.

You can use music licensing services. Here's one: htps://www.cdbabylicensing.com/

CDbaby is my publisher so I happened to have had that one handy.

I think he is more asking for something that could tell if a piece of music samples copyrighted material so he doesn't pay for something only to have it removed a month later because it had a sample from some tv show in it. I don't know of anything like that and while the producer / songwriter should absolutely tell you upfront if there are uncleared samples, that doesn't always happen.

I dug it! That's a sweet bass line, I was doing a little jiggle sitting here at my laptop listening to it. (Also I really like your DEVO-based name.)


Yeah, it does get super awesome towards the end... I like! Maaaaaybe crank up the amplitude a little before that? That's my only criticism, it was way low in the beginning and if I wasn't just casually listening I may have turned it off before that. Not trying to be harsh, just trying to help you get folks to stick around until the end! (I'm all too familiar with looking at my Bandcamp stats and seeing the "unfinished plays" lists. )

Why would you tell me Bandcamp keeps "unfinished plays" stats. Now I'm about to be sad.

Came across an old track that my rapper friend and I had worked on nearly a year ago and decided it deserved to be released even though we never "finished" it. Some of you may recognize the sample I used. Interestingly, I did a sample flip challenge this last week and the sample that got selected was the same one I used for this track "Criminology". Had to get creative to try and flip it again but I think it turned out really cool and definitely different than Criminology. Let me know what you think!

These are both really good! I want to hear more of "One More Time", I think it could really use a B section.

Thanks man. I definitely agree on One More Time needing a B section, I might try to come up with something later.

Pardon my ignorance, but what's a "sample flip"?

I like both tracks, btw. And pass on my admiration to KingOsiris, dude can spit. As a white 45 year old woman, it's still my dream to be able to spit a classic hip-hop track and not sound like a total idiot. (I can do lots of Beastie Boys, De La Soul, and PE passably enough for drunken karaoke; I think my NY accent helps)

Not at all, a sample-flip is where a producer takes a piece of another record and uses that piece to create something new. The idea being that you can take a small piece of another record and "flip" it into something completely different. Those two tracks are based around the same sample source.

A good example you would be familiar with is De La Soul's "Me Myself and I" which samples (Not Just) Knee Deep by Funkadelic (among other records).

I will absolutely let KingOsiris know! He'll definitely appreciate it.

I have been incredibly busy with work and life but am planning to spend some time tonight checking out the music on the last couple pages and responding. Will also post my favorite 3 tracks I have produced!

Cool thread, the goon music I've been able to check out so far tonight is really cool and I'm looking forward to digging through quite a few pages of history and hopefully grab some bandcamp links!

I make a lot of sample based music, mostly house and hip-hop, and some old school-ey 808 electro stuff mostly with some form of MPC. Stuck working from home for at least the next 3 weeks and trying to toss a healthy chunk of new tracks on soundcloud over that time. You can find my stuff here if at all curious:

My dude, thanks for posting. I also make a lot of sample-based music, mostly boombap hip-hop and am digging your stuff. Here is my soundcloud where I post a bunch of beats. Also saw that you are in the bay area which is dope, I am in Sacramento myself.
