Ladies and gentlemen,

http://tostigroover.bandcamp.com/ is where you can find my music.

Let me know what you think, honestly and completely.


Eternally yours,
Tostigroover.

Don't know them, Clerk... Not even when you twist my arm and make me shout.

I have updated the song Cloudburst. I would still love some comments.

Listening to cloudburst now - nice funky bassline, but the keys are a bit too 80s for my tastes.

The other two I enjoyed more.
So, is that all you, or do you have other musicians working with you?

Hey snipe, thanks for the listen. I know I wasted a couple of minutes of your life you'll never get back, that's why I appreciate it so.

The song Liquid is from a former band of mine - we quit about two and a half years ago. That's me on drums, plus a bassguitarist and guitarist. The band also featured singer, but frankly, I think this instrumental song was our best song.
The other two songs are just me working with my Macbook. I plan on doing the drums live for Cloudburst and to do some free bass over Motivational Muse. That is, when I have practiced the live parts. Up until now I have only made the songs, not played them.

Is there something I could change to the songs to make them better (e.g., volume adjustments, make certain aspect more clear, or perhaps some notes are off?) or are the gripes more subjective?

I took Cloudburst off. I need to redo that song once, when I have the time. I did put some other stuff on last.fm and MySpace.

02 AKA Motivational Muse is still the most 'finished' track I have ever made.
01 AKA [Untitled] I like but might not be for everyone, at least not immediately.
03 AKA [Untitled] (unsimplified) has a cool beat and feel to it, although I am working on a simplified version since the drums are all over the place. I like it, but it needs to be simplified.
Cloudburst (d'nb version) was just fun. I took a bassline from the song I was working on and turned it into this thing, that has some nice ideas in it. So now I have a finished remix of song that itself I have not finished yet...

I have a lot of other ideas but just not the time to work them out. the most difficult thing is not to get nice ideas, but to expand on them -- create fitting bridges, transitions, etcetera -- to let all flow into each other and still sound smooth, like one track, not something jigsaw'ish.

Wow, how long since my last update.
How long I have deprived you of my music!
Sorry about that.

http://tostigroover.bandcamp.com
Free tracks, as always.

On the opening page you will find a collaboration between my and my brother: the road less travelled by.
On the right you see pictures with links to my Remixes and solo work (Stacked Tosti Supreme).

I have on ReMix at the moment: One, Two, Battle! A mix between the battle themes from Final Fantasy (1987) and Final Fantasy II (1988).

Stacked Tosti Supreme has five finished tracks. I feel genuinely content with the first four tracks. Don't Look Back was a joke between me and my brother -- who could write the best gabber track? Hear the humour in it.
I actually feel content with that one, too. So bad, it's good.

I added two new free (as always) tracks. 'The road less travelled by' was done by my brother and me.

'Cloudburst' uses a bassline thought up by Theo Szarafinski. It took me some time to finish this track. (See a previous post where I mention I took an earlier version offline to redo.)

I need help. What kind of genre does this track belong to?

I just ran across my No Code cd. I'm downloading your new stuff again now...

Hehe, it's completely different. To be honest, I like the new stuff more than NoCode although I was far more serious with that band than with what I'm making now.

Finally got it working. I have free MP3s as well but some people prefer YouTube.



I haven't made a movie for the track I finished tonight: The 10th Intergalactic Alien Rock Festival ~ Hypervelocity Headbang In Zero Gravity. You should be able to listen to it here.
