Sector 8

Today's music industry lesson:
Leak your album a few months before the new year, then release it near the beginning of the year. This just may be the secret formula for maximizing the time your album seems "new". Take notes, big music.

Today's song:
This one is called Sector 8. It is either a droning hypnotizer or a backdrop for some live jamming. I've attempted to arrange it so that it somewhat stands alone as a song. Hey look, song-a-week! I wonder how long that will keep up... Anyway. For this one I suggest you listen on a device that knows what bass is. Go for it.

I like it. It feels a little too electronic though, i could picture it in a late 70's early 80's movie, if it had a little more organic feel i could see it in a newer movie.

I'm a big RDJ fan, and a big SqPush fan as well, and this could easily fit onto Drukqs or Hard Normal Daddy. I dig it a bunch.

My critique is that the 8 bit sound at the beginning doesn't transition well into the 'main' part of the song, although i like it all, it could be much longer! Think about some of the repetition you get on those 6 minute Aphex tracks... it takes longer to get old than you may think!

S8 Remix? I'd put it on my iPod (if i had one). Do they have 100Gig iPods yet?

Yeah really the part you hear where everything is going is the original song. I just separated it out at the beginning to make it less like I was just posting a loop I made, which I essentially was. I definitely agree with you though. Thanks for the input.
