    Cosmic Core Volume III (Multi-genre compilation)

    Yes, please - it's the project called Knead&Sting.

    We should maybe point to our collaborative bio instead. I'll send it over to you!

    Cosmic Core Volume III (Multi-genre compilation)

    Hi guys! It's been a while but I think I might contribute something here, too.:

    There is this track called "Ionosphere" which I did a while ago, together with Alexander Sting and it's good music that I still like to listen to.
    However, it never went on any release so it's maybe just right? It's a kind of melodic but still minimalistic music with a deep 4/4 beat.


    Cheers
    Michael

    New Sample Pack Stabs, Chords & Harmony

    It has happened again: I've created an Ableton Live set containing stabs and chords for Quantize Ableton Tutorials - check out this pack if you need fresh stab sounds and want to get the right groove fast. There are video tutorials included that will help you mix and match sounds and explain how everything is created inside Ableton so the pack is not something you have to play "out of the box" but just a starting point for your own creativity.
    Curious to receive your feedback! Cheers!

    Chords + Pads - New Sound Pack & Video Tutorials

    Hi guys,

    this time I'd like to announce something special. For the first time I have collaborated with the London based music school Quantize Courses in order to create a unique pack that enables pretty much anyone to make chord progressions even without any specific knowledge about music theory.

    Contents:
    It comes with over 2,5 hours of video tutorials by Quantize Courses and features 20 hand-made pad sounds which I have created specifically for this pack.
    Additionally I've written 48 chord progresions (all in C Maj or C Min) that can be used and combined with any sound you like. It's a downloadable pack with fully mapped instrument racks designed for underground dance producers. If you look at everything included in this pack I think it comes at a great value (it costs less than many plugins). We've tried to include everything a music producer needs to create pad sounds and chords so check it out here and let me know if you have any questions. You need Ableton Live 9 for this pack, by the way.

    More info:
    http://quantizecourses.com/pads-chords/

    Demo tracks:
    To demonstrate the sounds I have created two demo songs that you can listen to on my Soundcloud page here.

    These demos have been created using nothing but the pack with a drumloop and a bassline.
    So all you can hear besides drums & bass – even the stabs or drone-type sounds and ambiences – are taken from the pack and I hope it shows the high flexibility of these sounds. They can morph seemlessly from dirty and atonal to harmonic beauty, just using pre-mapped macro controls.

    Demo video:
    Quantize Courses is showing a demo video taken from the course here for free which you might want to check out:

    Remix Opportunity

    Hi guys,

    I have received a lot of emails and postings from many people and it was not easy to decide with who to collaborate. In the end, we've created what I think is a coherent album. 8 different remixes from 8 different artists, living all over the planet, making music in different (electronic) genres. We have everything from Trip Hop to Tech House and there is even an acoustic mix by Claude Young (if you don't know him, he's one of the Techno music pioneers!). Sorry for everybody who missed the chance.

    If you want to grab your FREE copy of the album, it's now officially out and I think it's worth a listen:

    How to make the kick of your dreams!

    Hi all,

    after having watched all the videos and checked the Ableton project that comes with the pack, I have to say that it's a great value. These 20 bucks are really well spent, you get a very deep insight into how a kickdrum works and it's full of practicle examples that give you ideas about what to try if your kick drum does not really sound the way you want it too. Very professional. If you're serious about drums, buy this! :-)

    Remix Opportunity

    Hi guys,

    I’d be interested to know if you like to make a remix for my latest track. If you haven’t heared it, here it is: www.michaelknead.com/spring/

    I’ve decided to offer it for free under a CC license and I intend to pack all remixes from various producers into a nice free download as well so we all get some additional exposure and additional listeners. There will be well designed and handcrafted artwork included with the download package giving credit to everybody who is involved.

    By the way: Claude Young (if you don't know him, he's a Techno Pioneer from Detroit) has already said yes to doing a remix and so have various other musicians from around the world.

    We'll have all kinds of different genres – not just dance music, there is also Trip Hop and Ambient.
    My personal feeling is that my stems are pretty good and inspiring.

    So if you're interested in getting the stems and doing something (for free obviously), the deadline is ticking until the end of April.
    Let me know what you think!


    Cheers,
    Michael

    Acoustic instruments, my voice and Electronica

    Hi guys!

    Just a short notice that my new EP is out today.

    5 tracks, including my Piano (a sweet instrument from the 1960ies), a Viola and my own voice.
    All this is integrated into electronic beats between 85 and 125bpm, mixed and mastered and published on Tales From The Inside.

    You can check out snippets and the Official Video Clip (yes, we made a very artistic video as well) on this website:
    talesfromtheinside.com/michael-knead-inner-voices/

    Have Spotify? Then you can listen to all tracks in full length here:
    play.spotify.com/artist/11ssl7wRFL9qDJ7JY6r6Ur

    For the rest of you, the EP is available in all online music store.

    I'd really happy to receive your feedback! For me, this EP works almost like a small album and I'm kinda proud about the great feedback so far.
    A french artist commented about the EP: "Keep going and just listening your shiny destiny! What i see is passion, what i see is talent so with positive effect on it you'll bring sun into heart to people!" <3
