How about a brand new start-to-finish track? Looks like Nomic is still at his untouchable level, now with some psy/goa influences on top: https://soundcloud.com/nomic/psykejumppa-pastoreille
@Sherkel Oh dear, seems like I was wise not to browse around too much so far. I still have to catch up on M3 releases, too...
In better news, In Praise of Shadows is finally available on a Japanese site where you don't need paypal (a mere 7 years after the original release). I'll probably open it up to non-Japanese orders too, and you can find it here: https://tyfth.booth.pm/items/5289394
The plan to start some Shimo-style improvised streams this weekend has already gone wrong - my mixing laptop has died, so instead it's been a weekend of trying to recreate the setup on my PC. It looks like it's just about doable, but I definitely wouldn't trust it for mixing and streaming together.
The tldr is that I might be limited to recorded sets for a while, but at least there are a couple in the works...
@Sherkel My financial literacy's so bad, even that joke's almost beyond me! Thanks for the email, will be in touch too!
With some financial peril at the moment (related to the previous post, among other things), extra thanks to those who've ordered In Praise of Shadows over the past month - it's genuinely helping to keep things on the site and soundcloud going. I'll be sending another out tomorrow, and there are belated plans afoot to help people in Japan order it more easily.
Sorry for the silence this past month - TYFTH had to go on the back burner while I went to Europe at the end of October. Just came back from another trip (inside Japan) and hoping to focus on music for the rest of this month. Who knows, the delayed shmup talk might finally get started here, too...lots to talk about on TYFTH though, for starters.
Somehow I've never shared this all-time Epilim classic before - confirmed as a big influence on Alek Szahala when he wrote Maruuk, which says it all:
A classic of course, and even the DJ-friendly intro is great:
Another NRGetic Romancer set has just gone up on YT - one of the best Full Circle DJs live PAs of them all, including their Hellfire remix:
The Betwixt set is on YT already, but I'll scan and add this cover asap.
While looking for some old flyers I happened across a couple of CDs from the NRGetic Romancer archive:
Last update for now - the YT version of Betwixt's 2005 LIve PA now has timestamps for each of the tracks. I'll do this for all sets that go up on YT from now on, and will aim to do the rest eventually.
A post or two are on the way to TYFTH soon but in the meantime a quick update - I'm making progress on a new track but still quite some way to go, while the next freeform set might be a 'no later than 2005' mix inspired by Betwixt's Live PA that started it all.
Behind schedule on the weekly freeform, but here's a modern track by Exemia - my favourite from the Gunvein OST, it's both a banger of a boss track and a fine introduction to freeform for the newcomers.
With no 'new' mix for a while I'm thinking about a few ideas for a streamed set in the meantime. The plan is to test out a couple of things in the next few days, and then get a stream ready for later this month. Also supposed to get some more stuff up on TYFTH soon, plus some other Secret Things.
