Tune-in Tuesday: iOS Made Music Picks

Another instalment in our infrequent series highlighting some of the fantastic creative talent found over on SoundCloud.

This time we are featuring new material from three artists that we have mentioned before and who we follow on SoundCloud. 

'Tango' by BAD FUN

Created using Korg's iMS-20, this is another slice of bright and uplifting Electronica from BAD FUN (a.k.a. Mike from San Jose, USA). Turn this one up loud!

'Lorem Ipsum-L6' by nOtrO

Time to chill out a little now with this track from nOtrO (a.k.a. Sylvain Berthu from Saint Clément de rivière, France). Sylvian created this track in just 3 hours using NanoStudio from Blip Interactive. It evokes in us thoughts of travelling at night, maybe as a soundtrack to being on a train racing through the countryside. We like the vocals that are introduced later on in the track too.

'Keep Fighting' by DJBitBurner

We are always suckers for a chip tune, maybe it's because of the ZX Spectrum's anniversary this week, but we really enjoyed the sounds in this NanoStudio track from DJBitBurner from Bakersfield, USA, especially the descending slides near the end.

Over to you

We hope you enjoyed listening to our picks this week, but as always, we want to hear from you too. If you have your own iOS created sounds (preferably with the iPad, but not essential) here's how you can get them to us:

  • Join our iPad Creative SoundCloud group then click on the 'Share a Track' button on the group page
  • If you're on a computer, click 'Send us your sounds' at top of the sidebar to the right of your screen --->
  • Leave us a link to your track on SoundCloud in the comments below

Thanks again for listening, we're looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Tune-in Tuesday: Created in iOS

Another mixed bag of picks this week for you from iOS using SoundCloud-ers, showing the diversity and creativity that can be found over there.

Don't forget we have a SoundCloud group just for you, so you can share your iOS creations too.

Details of how you can get your tracks to us are below this week's song picks.

'DJBITBURNER vs PEZZERDOTCOM - AHOWOY' by Pezzerdotcom

This is a remix by Pezzerdotcom of DJBitBurner's NanoStudio track "Ah ow oy". The original was great 'Chiptune' fun (we love Chiptune stuff!) but this remix really takes it up a level and punches very hard. Great stuff!

'Solitaire' by peanut_gallery

A change of pace now, with this GarageBand-made track from peanut_gallery (a.k.a. Ian Hisert from Oakland, US). He has tagged this track with the 'Soundtrack' category and we can definitely imagine this instrumental piece being used as a soundtrack. Good use of the instruments in GarageBand for iOS, especially as it is his first track entirely produced using Apple's app.

'That Vintage Engine' by Ashley Elsdon 

Here's a little treat for you from Ashley Elsdon, who many of you will know as creator and author of the sadly mothballed Palm Sounds website (we still miss Palm Sounds, Ashley).

Ashley used samples he recorded from cars at the London to Brighton Vintage Car Run last year as the basis for this track, created in the super versatile Beatmaker II app. It's a clever use of samples and has a great energy. Enjoy!
