meet DOS4GW

i do hope you have the time

Five minutes between projects. As good a time as any to write some more.

At work at the moment, I am between Super Boring Project and Super Boring Project II – The Reckoning, so I’m not really looking forward to the next week or two. On the flip side, it’s now almost exactly a week until I fly out to Melbourne, which I am looking forward to like a motherfucker.

I’m in a bit of a spot with the Suicide EP thing. I’ve put together a draft of the whole thing, mixed, mastered, and in sequence. I’ve listened to it a couple of times so far, and there are a few points in the mixing that I need to work on, and some of the tune transitions aren’t working as well as they could. These are all easily fixable problems though.

The thing that is making me second guess the wisdom of this whole thing is that this release is totally instrumental (at least, it is at the moment).  It’s also all hiphop type beats, none of the heavy dub stuff that I’ve made of late. I really want to get it out the door before I go away, so I have something to point at during the promo spots that I’m doing, and in the media that is being sent out.

I’ve just realised that it’s a shit idea though. A couple of these tunes would definitely be better with vocals. So I don’t think it’s going to make it out before the trip.

AAAAAAARgh I’m confused. Is it better to have product out sooner that’s 90% of the way there, or is it better to keep putting it off indefinitely until it’s 99%?

Fuck it. I’ve released stuff I was 90% happy with in the past and always regretted it. I think I’ll try a different approach this time.

In other news, I had turnip soup for the first time last night, and quite enjoyed it. I’m not joking.

    It’s not really the same with software as it is for music, but “Version 1 Sucks, But Ship It Anyway” –

    it’d be cool to have a part 1 and part 2. like, part 1 could be the instrumental version, part 2 with vocals n other shit you feel like adding in over time.

    Sadly, releasing a 1.1 would be rather difficult I think.

    Although that is an idea; instead of releasing material and never improving on it, I could set up a git repository for my music! now there’s a fucking idea.
