@themcnoisy Awesome, Noisy! Strong. You’ve really accomplished quite a bit in Dreams. How much musical creation had you done before this? Do you have a lot of training and background prior?

@Th3solution I used to MC 20 years ago to various DJs in the North West. Got into music production via music on the PS1 and Dance Ejay on PC before that, They were really basic and pretty bad, but I played around with them and did things they weren't designed for. From there bought an MC 303 and had a hacked version of reason in my last year of uni. Made some ok tunes, my acid house tunes sounded great due to the homemade nature of the genre - but could never master the end sounds well enough to make anything commercial. Then didn't do much until I bought a laptop a few years back with a licensed copy of reason. I've got the basics down, understand automation and am confident I could crank out a commercial album if I had the time and motivation.

Also more importantly I really need someone who is good at polishing my stuff. When you make a tune you get that into it, you miss errors and things that sound slightly off.

Really nice to see Michael Kiwanuka winning the Mercury Prize, it was a great crop this year with Charli XCX, Dua Lipa and Stormzy all missing out. I’ve actually seen him live and he’s brilliant, brought a great energy to his set and mixed up his more well-known tracks into something completely new. As an album and a wider statement of intent, I’m glad Kiwanuka was recognised.

@themcnoisy How far into the NW did you get? I used to get out in Lancashire and Cumbria a lot in the 90's/00's.

@Arugula Mostly in Merseyside. I wasn't paid well, sometimes I wasn't paid at all! But it was a laugh the best times were the back end of uni and when I had my first job. My mates set up nights and I went and took a small share of the receipts and got free drinks. It did effect my uni work but hey ho would probably do it again.

I did play Blackpool and Wolverhampton at one point at friends of friends promotions. The reason I finally stopped was the booze and other stuff that went with going out 3/4 times a week. It gets too heavy, I was once awake Thursday until Monday night. Awesome, not so awesome when you can't speak and you have a crowd looking at you. Then have work after a bank holiday.

It was great, when you watch the hangover film - my life was similar to that for 3 or 4 years.

Anyway I have just bought a USB mic, so I will be working on a strings for life remix next week

@themcnoisy Crikey, Noisy. Can't keep that up for too long. As you allude to though, it's something you'll never forget!

@nessisonett @Th3solution Do you guys ever listen to Joe Bonamassa? I quite like some of his work @Th3solution He is in a band with John Bonham's son, Jason - Black Country Communion. Have you ever heard any of their stuff? Would you recommend it?

@themcnoisy The life of a musician eh? I am quite interested in playing jazz guitar but the guys I knew in my hometown, where I'm originally from would just take drugs in addition to playing the (jazz) music. Well, I don't know that for sure but there were certainly suspicious smells! Anyway, I don't know too much about today's music scene but I get the impression that drugs and drink are still a big part of it and that's what keeps me away from wanting to take it seriously, I prefer a more sedate lifestyle - where I can sleep properly. Would you say that that lifestyle goes hand in hand with being a professional musician? Better to just work from home if you're not into the lifestyle?

@Draco_V_Ecliptic I had not heard of him or BCC but I gave a few songs of theirs a spin just now and I do quite like them. They have that Southern Rock feel that I like. Good recommendation!

@Draco_V_Ecliptic I’ve not really heard of him before but sounds pretty solid from what I’ve listened to there!

I also listened to Anna von Hausswolff’s new album, “All Thoughts Fly”. It’s utterly brilliant, completely instrumental but engrossing due to the crazy tones she can get from an organ. Some sounds just grab you and this album grabbed me. One of my albums of the year.

Anyone got any recommendations for solid 90s EDM/acid house/rave? I’ve been listening to Orbital, The Prodigy, 808 State and The KLF while coding as they get me in the zone. What sorta stuff do you lot listen to that gets you in the zone?

@Draco_V_Ecliptic I'm almost 40 now, it was over 16 years ago.

We have some jazz players on Dreams, Sonofaglitch sends me stuff all the time and it's free form jazz.

@Th3solution @nessisonett BCC are quite good aren't they? They sound like the sons of Led Zeppelin and not just because one of them is quite literally the son of one of the Led Zeppelin members! The singer's voice sounds a bit like Chris Cornell's, though.

I've been listening to a lot of Bonamassa's solo stuff too, though, and that's well worth checking out, too.

@Draco_V_Ecliptic I have listened to a looot of southern rock in my life, it was (and perhaps still is) an unexplainable fascination of mine. Most more modern southern rock, like BCC I don't really get into as much.

The only more recent Southern rock I could get into was Morning Jacket's early work:

My favorite Southern rock act is of course Allman Brothers Band:

Aside from that I really like the Outlaws (not as well known here in Europe):

Draco_V_Ecliptic

@Kidfried Oh yeah? I have heard Outlaws before and greatly admire their work, that's actually a really good song. Do you like Lynyrd Skynyrd as well then? Probably the most famous southern rock band.

@Draco_V_Ecliptic Lynyrd Skynyrd is what started my love for southern rock. The Ronnie Van Zant and Allen Collins songs are my favourites: Tuesday's Gone, Gimme Three Steps, The Ballad of Curtis Loew, and a lot more (of course Free Bird as well).

I don't really like southern rock when it's too cliched, so I don't care for post-90s Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top or 38 Special.
