Hello everyone, and welcome to the first thread for the UG Electro album. If you are familiar with Glen'sHeroicAct's notorious UG albums then this will be nothing new to you. It is an album that you, the members of UG, submit songs to and they are edited up and put on the album which will eventually be available for download on megaupload.com. This particular album is an electro only album, meaning all contributions must at least be electro or techno based for the genre, though you can mix it with other genres. So the first thing you will need to do is post whether you are interested in submitting.

Note: You can submit up to three songs.
Note: Covers are allowed as long as it classifies more as a remix.


You will have until January 10th to work on the songs and after that you will have a week to submit them. If there is any reason you will not be able to submit it within that week, let me know ahead of time and I will figure something out.


So who is interested?


Submitted A Song So Far

  • Rabidguitarist (1)

  • xaviergray (1)

  • JakdOnCrack (1)

  • Tommo619 (2)

  • Alteredgod (3)

  • Dubstar92 (1)

  • SSL27 (1)

  • barb3rman (2)

  • Stratwizard (1)

  • Broken_Drum (3)

  • -February-Star- (1)

  • jayr123guitar (1)

If your name is not on the list but you have submitted a song(s), it is because you didn't include your UG name when you sent it. So if this is the case for you, please let me know the song(s) you sent and your UG name.

If you already finished and want to submit early, send it to me at TheBaphomets@hotmail.com. .

Make sure to include you UG name when sending it so I'll know who you are.

UPDATE!!!!!!-Jan 10th
Everyone has one more week to submit their songs, after that I will begin finalizing and mastering them so keep at it.

Sounds cool, I'll have to see if I can get my current piece done in time for this one.

XAVIEDIT: Will you accept experimental, Aphex Twin-ish stuff?

I'm working on some stuff I might put in.

SHEdit: One option is a mix of Digital Sea by Thrice, which I've pushed up ~17BPM and added a couple of trancey pads and a hihat layer to. It might go up to my profile soon.

sign me up.

EDIT: does it absolutely have to be techno? could I submit something that's say industrial or some other heavily electronic genre. Techno is very very limiting.

I took it that this was incorporating elements of electro, but not strictly limited to it.
I plan on using real instruments as well, provided that's allowed.

I was more thinking about totally different genres that are still all or mostly electronic, such as darkwave or newer Industrial.

That just about clears it up doesn't it. As long as it has a clearly strong electro or techno influence or sound, than I'll probably accept it.

I assume that's what he meant by techno/electronic.

A lot of people I know just group anything to do with electronic music under techno.

I was thinking the same thing, but it may confuse a lot of people who make electronic music, since they usually know better.

Is there an annoying tendency among these people to not like what they've dubbed "techno"? I've noticed people who don't like any electronic music call it all techno.

Yeah.

I have a friend who is really into house and trance stuff, so whenever I see him I ask him, "Are you still listening to that doof-doof techno shit?" Just for laughs though I'm an EBM fan myself.

Wish i could contribute im a big fan of sasha/digweed, but that wouldn't classify as electro

Same here man. I just haven't got anything to record with.

I've got all these soundscapes planned out in my head, and all I have is one of those cheap synth pianos.

I can't even get audacity to work with my computer mic, so unless I get something really good for Christmas (which is a definite NO) I'm out as well.

I'd love to see what everyone produces though, especially mastabassist (I think that's his name, I haven't seen him round lately though:| )

you know theres, plenty of free MIDI sequencing software and synth plugins that you people can use.

If i made a track it would go for like 10 minutes, i like the prog side of it all.
I can't wait to see what happens

My mix of Digital Sea takes a 3:44 song, makes it faster, and still lasts over six minutes. I'll be uploading it in a second as soon as I figure the system out (never uploaded before). Let me know how much you all hate it.

(in case you didn't read the song's description) The piano bit is a segue into the next track I'm working on. It starts off fairly dancey and then goes a wee bit crazy with a phaser at the end...

Could I then make some Sci-Fi themed Dark Psytrance with a teeny bit of funk thrown in?

Sounds horrible, doesn't it?

Electric Fugue is in the same vein as a lot of that soundtrack, electronic classical. you should give it a listen, very cool cd imo.
