thinking on what KamPAIGN & Dr. Gory talked about in their videos RE: The 2nd installment of the HitRECorderly, and the compiling the RECords best suited for inclusion, and the idea of the sequencing, I made this album which focuses on the sequence of the 3 7" vinyl discs.
After making genre-specific albums with the RECords I think would sound most-excellent on the vinyls, I narrowed it down to the select few that I think would sound most-most-excellent as they would be sequenced on their specific vinyl discs.
Now... I don't know about you, but one of the things I love about vinyl is the thought that goes into what is put where and when and on what side. Some of my favorite artists and groups actually put some thought into this idea, as means of creating a sense of cohesive relativity of the work entire. How one song flows into the next, and their connection to the work entire.
Note on the selections:
Usually 7" discs were meant for singles, so the idea of more than one song on one side makes it a bit tricky. The total time for one side of 7" 45 rpm (revolutions per minute) vinyl is usually no more than 4-5 minutes. 6-7 minutes is pushing it, but it's possible, if necessary. The HitRECord RECollection vinyl runs about 5 minutes on both sides, but those were made of songs that weren't very long (with the exception of the 4 minute "Everything is on Fire" song). So in thinking about what I'd like to hear on the HitRECorderly vinyl, I put into consideration the length of the song(s), as well as the content/context.
This is arranged according to the Side A/B of each vinyl:
Disc #1 (Automater Collage)
Disc #2 (Funky/Hip Hop)
Disc #3 (Rock)
*if you have these songs downloaded, try putting them in this order on a playlist, and giving it a listen.
upon request of JGL & some of the rest of the HitRecord team, here's our 2nd released take of the Dan the Automator Collage song ("a capella" version also being uploaded)
Here is a vocal mix I did for the collage song collab. I gathered some great vocal contributions from the collab that i felt went well with the track and together. Hope you enjoy it!
while working on a REmix of "the prize," i got this riff in my head. so i put prize on hold and worked on this.
sampled a bit of Lava Tornado and another tasy find from GwenInterrupted's trusty loop collection.
Guitar, Bass, Arrangement ~ meeeee
rather than sit around with it, i'm sharing it in its "rough draft" state. or whatever.
i'd love to get someone doing a nice hip hop flow to it. or something of that nature.
this is why i hit RECord.
This RECord can now be heard on the HitRECorderly #3 Vinyl (released Summer 2012) as "Diamond in the Rough"
check it out here:
I'm working on a hip-hop theme to the fictionally insane Vincent McSuperfly, the rambunctious host of hitRECord's "REmix Theatre."
This is v1 of the beat. theboxset's "Buddy" has been heavily REmixed and I made room for several breaks where additional vocal samples will be added (including a "radio station identification" announcement.)
In the meantime, be on the lookout for the two McSuperfly "Haaaaaaa" samples. Those were fun to throw in to the mix.
Lyrics for the next stage of this track are in the works. I'll post what I have so far for verses.
All radio station samples are from www.sounddogs.com
I love the combination in TongueCutSparrow's song between frantic punk mania and the seemingly sweet cuddly subject matter that gets a little dark. And I really love a bunch of people in different countries meowing together!
I had to add my own cat vox as well. Mostly I just trimmed it down in length (you know, GarageBand isn't a half bad audio editor for stuff like this) and rearranged some things, not to change it really, but just hoping to accentuate its virtues.
(Also, I'm gonna upload a ZIP of the uncompressed version of this file, plus stems of the song without my vocals, and my vocals isolated.)
Choked With Trees by ForestKnauff--Added some instruments onto there. Percussion is off in some parts, but can be corrected. Also made some album art. Enjoy!
Here is a pretty poppy song that Metaphorest wrote the lyrics for. I couldn't have finished it without you Sarah, so thank you very much for helping out. :D
Thanks. Well, I had the music track sitting, collecting dust on my computer with my mumbly vocal idea for about a year or so. I really wanted to finish it, but I often struggle with writing lyrics. Metaphorest is a pro at writing and I asked her if she would like to help me out with the words. I gave her the track and named it, and she returned with the lyrics that fit the title magically. She can tell you more on what she thought would work for the song lyrically too im sure.
I played with syllables/timing and moved a few things around a bit so everything fit into the melody I had in mind. And thats basically it. No other records were used. I will upload the stems soon too. :)

Here is my first stab at remixing Joe's performance at BFI. A big thanks to everyone that REcorded the performance.
