a new member, kerx joined us in poland. he has convinced me with his great taste and skills in making music and i hope to be able to put out some of his fantastic music available through voodoo. stay tuned!

this time i’m representing a tune, that pulled me deeper while composing. after many hours of listening to boards of canada and especially one of their ep’s and a couple of other tracks i felt i need to express my feels in a form of music and so i went down with digibooster (the trackr) again and didn’t came out until i was done. i certainly hope i can create some images in your mind with my track.

substance – hummingbird {#056}

Artist: substance
Title:
hummingbird
Label:
 Voodoo
Catalog #:
#056
Release Date:
2001/06/03


after long pause i’m back to release something fresh. various things have happened during this break. quite soon after the last release (#055) and after i had written a complete track for voodoo, i lost the mod partition on my hd thus lost all my unfinished mods from almost 10 years time but also the finished track and those made by other people. that eventually changed my plans and caused some lack of motivation.

not all of the current news are bad. loke has recently moved to the same city than me and after his military service i hope we can come up with something common.

this time i’m presenting a new track by me that i had in mind ever since i listened to the last voodoo release ‘valkoinen’ by a/oc. it’s just so good track and i wanted to try achieving some of that mood by myself. well i’m not the one to judge, you are but i definately hope you like the track cos i think i found something else 🙂

substance – wavelength of a day {#053}

Artist: substance
Title:
wavelength of a day
Label:
 Voodoo
Catalog #:
#053
Release Date:
2001/02/12


i’m happy to present you this newborn song. i hope you enjoy it just as much as any other of the previous releases. i came up with the idea for a new track after been fiddling with roland soundcanvas sk-88 pro. i really got into the melody while playing and it inspired me to continue with this project. i’m pretty satisfied with the result, allthough it’s not the best i’ve done.

i know it’s sad, and i considered well before making the decision. after so long time of inactivity, i decided to retire both, orlingo and roz. it was a really hard decision to make but because of their lack of time and motivation for tracker music, it had to be done. i hope they’ll see it from my view and have no hard feelings towards me. before this, voodoo had already become a group of only 4 active members.

chunky bits.

substance – queue {#048}

Artist: substance
Title:
queue
Label:
 Voodoo
Catalog #:
#048
Release Date:
2000/11/24


put all your faith in us and be rewarded. one thing which bothers us here at the headquarters is that there are some damn individuals who have been following up voodoo all the way from it’s beginning and still are whining about our small amount of releases. to make it clear now i’m saying it for the last time. we concentrate on quality, not quantity and if it doesn’t fit into your ideal world then sod off. as a bit more positive note we got a new member to our forces. welcome s!nist3ra to the group!

this track had been lying on my harddisk for an week or so until i grabbed it to my next project. the track itself consists of analogic sounds and again is pretty simple one. that however is one of the interesting bits, to fiddle around analogic samples and put them in layers. you may notice that the two main instruments are working on two whole melodies on the same time.

Substance – Learning To Rock {mtw016}

Artist: Substance
Title:
Learning To Rock
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
mtw016
Release Date:
2000/03/28


After being vaguely dormant for some time, Mono211, the sister, much more hiphop-influenced breakz+beats label to Monotonik, returns, with this rather cute tune from Helsinki, Finland native Substance.

Substance (who also releases on Monotonik as Kuu), has crafted a smartly oldskool track from an acid bassline, loping drums, and some lovely scratchy hits and vocal samples. Put the needle on the record and check it, s’il vous plait..

substance – scottish fold {#044}

Artist: substance
Title:
scottish fold
Label:
 Voodoo
Catalog #:
#044
Release Date:
2000/03/14


substance is back in the tracker scene after quite some break. this can be explained by the lack of time and also because of other more serious music projects. however, a new track is announced here and it was composed the good old times in mind. the attempt was to create same kind of atmospheres that were for example in richard d. james’ or boards of canada’s former material before the digital revolution.

the track is very melodic and simple, but what counts is the feeling that overcomes by flow. i hope you all like it.

Label:

Catalog #:
#037
Release Date:
1999/04/05


hi my fellow music artists and voodoo fanatics. life is a strange thing isn’t it? sometimes when everything goes bad, it follows with even worse period. that’s what happened to me some time ago. i was almost in the end of the tunnel when i finally and suddenly got dragged into a place where i’m now working. after about 3 years of unemployment i have achieved a job and as i moved from the evergrowing depression (a reason why this group died more or less) to a busy worker’s life i did realise that i’m not able to keep any schedule on releasing material. so this is a sort of closing letter my fellow sceners. i’m trying to follow what’s happening but i’ve got way too much to do with my other groups and being updated of things that i’m not capable to run this group amongst my other duties. therefore i hope everything good in your lives and i hope this 1,5 years that voodoo existed will stay in your mind as a nice period with lots of quality music

yours

Prob+Ebb+Tek+Substance – Benedict (Stylez Remix) {REL#164}

Artist: Prob+Ebb+Tek+Substance
Title:
Benedict (Stylez Remix)
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
REL#164
Release Date:
1999/04/02


More rewording and reordering as Substance takes elements from two previous releases (Tek’s mp3 “Benedict” and Prob+Ebb’s “Stylez”) and merges and melds to come up with this mellifluous hybrid. It’s fun to play with sounds, isn’t it? Watch out for a simultaneous/near-simultaneous Malik remix of “Stylez” on Theralite (http://pigforce.warande.net/theralite), incidentally.. mmm, synchronicity can be so constructive, hm?

Substance – Beat For Me {mtw003}

Artist: Substance
Title:
Beat For Me
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
mtw003
Release Date:
1999/02/08


mono211 is proud to present the third mp3 release from da home of da hits. this time round it’s Substance, who provides us with a hard, filtered d+b track with an evil agenda to make your feet tap. But there’s lots of hidden subtlety, both in rhythm and texture, which emerges the more you listen to it. somewhere towards the Bristol d+b sound but tending to echo a less filtered Optical-styled sound, this is the sound of jungle getting lean, mean, and moody just in time for the new millenium.

Substance – Reversions {rel#155}

Artist: Substance
Title:
Reversions
Label:
Mono211
Catalog #:
rel#155
Release Date:
1998/11/16


Back again on the label with the mono and the 2 and the 1 and the 1, it’s the finnish groove-god hymn-self with some real chilled jazzy action. why _do_ we like the jazz-chill-groove so much? it’s definitely partly to do with the fact we release over the Net, and so people listen at home on their computers.. beats that sound kickass in clubs sometimes sound boring at home, and vice versa, which we think is a mistake a lot of sceners make.

but with our forthcoming videogame and vinyl action you’ll be able to hear our crazy side.. as, in fact, you can with our first mp3 from vim! 🙂 plug over. back to work… oh, if anyone says this track of kuu’s sounds like spandau ballet, we’re gonna have to shoot them 🙂 with a waterpistol 🙂
