Superior Tech

Listen to the Superior Tech Mixtape Mix

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

I joined PodOMatic recently because Kelly Thompson posted her new 3 Chicks Review Comics podcast on there (featuring a 3 Chicks theme by Nik Furious). Well, it was only a matter of time before I got Furious in on the fun himself.

I put together a continuous mix of the tracks from the Superior Tech mixtape... a little something I like to call the Superior Tech Mixtape Mix (I'd embed it here except that the PodOMatic player width is a little large for my blog AND it autoplays).

So hit up this first of my Mixtape Mixes and lemme know what you think! I've discovered that PodOMatic is a fantastic community of proactive musicians and DJs, so it's worth popping by the site anyway. And of course, if you sign up, swing by the Nik Furious PodOMatic profile and friend me up!

Nik Furious: Superior Tech: Windrider

Do you know who the Windrider is? Don't waste your time trying to Google it -- you're better off going to your local comic shop and asking the person behind the counter.

This beat was a bit of an experiment for me. I utilized two drastically different sections of the same sample and turned out a combination that communicates a whole other attitude than the original.

The product is moody, powerful, and even elegant at times. A fine tribute to my adored Windrider, if you ask me.

Nik Furious: Superior Tech: Superior Tech

No! That's not a typo -- this is the title track of the mixtape. Why? Because this beat is near and dear to my heart.

It's got a wild funky synth sample with pounding energy, and that's great. But the drums... the drums are killer! Yeah, okay, they're my drums and I'm a bit partial, but they're killer nonetheless!

Nik Furious: Superior Tech: Silver Centurion

This is one of my most mellow productions. It's heavily influenced by the sound of Le Knight Club and the sampling style of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (of Daft Punk fame).

Personally, my favorite part of the song is what I call -- for lack of a better phrase -- the "trips," or rather the moments when the beat does little skips at the end of a phrase.
