try: 8, 2, 9, 12
1. 1 min track. 20 sec of wind effects and gear-up. sterile flight announcer voice and more effects. futuristic airport, etc. some synth towards the end.
*2. dark and slick. hard drums and super-synthy guitar (or is it rockish synth?). creepy vocals played as choral chords.
3. funky beat and playful synth blowouts. dark and dancey. no vox. abrupt end.
4. 1 min track. light and thready high-pitched flute-like synth.
5. big fat glitchy synth/bass. loose cymbals. this track drops orbs of sound like rocks in... something that’s gonna ripple. not yr abs.
6. dripping water/well/cave sound effects. explodes into fast drums and messy metalish feedback about 1:00 in. washy/speedy/crazed electric guitar solo... that goes on and on. but: nice cool-down at the end. play if your set needs a good 5 minutes of grah.
7. 1 min track. warbly space synth and loose loud cymbals. ends with heavy breathing.
*8. glitchy funky jerky dancey hilarity. nice layered delays (a la ‘i ran’ by a flock of seagulls). ends with junior-boysy whispered vox.
*9. live drums... maybe. melodic pinbacky riff on what could be a real electric guitar. vocoder. warm and laid-back sound. synth root notes kick in at the end. fades out early.
10. jangly acoustic guitar. busy climbing bass. sprinkly bellsy overtones. hypnotic loop. could pass for prog.
11. 1 min track. big sludgy metal bass bombs. thundering reverb.
*12. space balladry. cool hand-drum-like intro... on vibes. bright shiny single-strum guitar. drums come in to clarify the beat, then toy with it. very sailing off into the sunset... in outer space, that is.
