Shaun Carley - Get Go album release

Shaun Carley - Get Go

Remix and electronic musician Shaun Carley who you may have heard on the well received LOSER compilation with his tracks Blast Processing and Lvl. 9 Let's Go! has recently released his brand new album for free through his myspace page (Download in the 'about me' section).

The album, Get Go, is a 45 minute expanse of game inspired electronica, with tracks both adrenaline fueled and relaxing in nature. Entering with the atmospheric title track Get Go, which floats between bouncy breakbeat tunes and slightly ominous drum n bass. One of my favorite tracks is the high pitched, sound effects laden Muffin Stomp. Taking sound effects from Super Mario 3 and blending them in quite well to add another layer to the nostalgic track.

Of course the other ten tracks are no slouches either, and run a gamut of sounds, like with the laid back The Capital of Alabama or glitch infused track Carousel. The album closes strong with an ever building ride through the song Memories of You. Starting with slow dripping pace until the main melody breaks through at about the halfway mark. The song brings a reflectively upbeat orchestral sound into the mix. The song then slowly fades out instrument by instrument until we close with a lone violin.

Like I said, the album is available via myspace.com/shauncarley. Check it out yourself to hear an up and coming artist finding his own distinct style.

LOSER: A Sega Genesis Tribute compilation release!


Hey, do you remember that compilation thing I started putting together a few months ago?

Well it is done! Head over to gamemusic4all.com/genesis to download the 39 track compilation dedicated 100% to the Sega Genesis! You won't regret it, unlike actually owning a Genesis instead of a Super NES!

Also huge thanks to all the artists who contributed tracks to this endeavor! It is, of course, the musicians who make the album, and are so supportive of these compilations I think up. Also thanks to Doctor Octoroc who will eventually be making album art for this compilation to replace the lameness I slapped together to open this post with. Another huge thanks to Shawn Phase of Temp Sound Solutions for undertaking the thankless (except for these thanks here) and difficult task of mastering and leveling a ton of disparate tracks.

I am tough on the Genesis folks (have been since grade school) but this album seriously rules, and I sincerely hope everyone enjoys it!
