The Ember Music MIXcast is a regular helping of tracks by artists of the Ember Music label. This mixcast was compiled and mixed by William Bendrot.
We’ve got a lot of really fantastic chill/downtempo artists and this month’s MIXcast is a sampling of just a handful, both old and brand new. We’ve got two tracks from Vacant Mind’s new release “The Night is Over and Dawn is about to Break” (because I really liked both tracks and couldn’t decide which one to include :-)) As well as the opening track off of the brand new album from The A.M.Experiment.
Enjoy! And if you like what you hear on this MIXcast, please tell others, and then go to EmberMusic.com to discover more!

Ember Music artist Scott Brown (Fake Empire, Slowly We Falter) has posted a review and demo of the Red Panda Lab Particle. He also talks about some of the uses/techniques he discovered using the Particle so far.
Particle is a granular delay / pitch shifting pedal. It chops your signal into small grains and then does various strange, trippy, robot things to it, using the techniques of granular synthesis in real time. Results range from radical pitch and delay modulation to shimmering repeats to stutter/glitch sounds.
The audio demos were created by running an Elektron Machinedrum into the particle. It works particularly well with drum tracks so I wanted to show some of it’s potential. The audio was recorded into Logic via a Saffire Pro 40 interface.

We are very happy to announce the release of the Ember Music Chain Album. The album is available now via Bandcamp !
This album started with an idea. Give an artist some random samples to use in an original track. Samples are then taken from the first track and given to the second artist to use. Samples from the second track are given to the third artist… on and on down the chain. The artists were not told whose samples they received nor to whom their samples would go. The artists were also sent an image as inspiration.
The results are quite astounding.
Tracks composed, performed and mixed by the respective artists.
Mastered by Bill Bendrot.
Album art/design by Kurt Lorenz.
