INTERGALACTIC SPACE MODULATOR


Credits 

Zeph: Drums,Special effects,End rides, Production
Jaime: Piano, Vocals and other cool ideas
ThePhaige: Lyrics,Vocals and some other things
***************************************

What to say about this track..I was originally going to go instrumental on this with a play of Marvin the Martian from Bugs bunny.. and then I thought nahh ...I wanted to have fun lyrically and with my friends on this one. So it became like a fun joy ride though space in an intergalactic hot rod. Jaime brought some killer vocals and this awesome piano set for the middle of the song that sort of reminds me of being in an intergalactic lounge chilling and listening to music or whatever. I thought what she came up with was so perfect for the song and I love it. Jaime is someone I cant say enough good things about with regard to her gifts and as a person. Simply the best!

Passed this off the Zeph as he was upgrading his studio and I think he was able to use this track to dial everything in and get all the bugs and entities out. He came with a great drum ride as well as the cool effects all over the song , and that wild ride of an end...just perfect. Im very happy with how Zeph interprets our tunes and seems to know just what it needs here and there. He dedicated tons of time to this one and it shows big time and Im so grateful. So lets get Modulatin'  ~ThePhaige

Intergalactic Space Modulator

Forward is the way we're gonna go
We're not living in the past like we used to do
Everything that matters lies ahead
We'll use our history to learn but not be led
Countless adventures in our path
So bountiful and fun we so have done the math
As we pick up the little memories from the road
Enjoy all that's reaped as well as all that's sowed

We gonna ride in our
InterGalactic Space Modulator
On through intergalactic space
InterGalactic Space Modulator
I'll bring my guitars…you grab the bass
Modulate it baby…modulate it baby

Yeah - hit me with some of that bass
And gimme that electric guitar

Promethium, nutronium, and caffeineium
The fuel in the tank for our trip around the sun
Will have the windows down and have the heat shields up
Gonna try not to get a sun spot on the paint or in our cups
As we accelerate the winds in our hair
Oh wait..we're in outer space that's really just conditioned air
But whose all that concerned or recording the facts
We're here for the visions taking to the intergalactic max

InterGalactic Space Modulator
On through intergalactic space
InterGalactic Space Modulator
I'll grab my guitars…you grab the…ebony/ivory
Modulate it baby…modulate it baby…
Play us some of that piano we love
Sounds like an angel from above

So we've passed the sun and we're into open space
Tooling along as in a virtual race
The stars are zooming from front, left and right
IF they was musical notes they'd be quadraphonic light
Impulse drive engaged into some foreign galaxies
We see nebulae, the pulsars, and some wild anomalies
There ain't no concerns cause wez having a blast
No pun intended as the copacetic wez sharin iz limitless and vast

MEMA - ZD




Original Release October 09, 2015



Capturing the mood in this kind of synthphonic piece. I really crush the drums and make them reverberate unnaturally. I guess I feel it's eerie like a horror movie right now, the outside world that is. Sometimes I feel words are unnecessary. So there are no words here.

The vibe is: Trying to find the exit but wanting to be hopeful too. Criss cross feelings yet inconclusive. Again.

I play:

2 Synths and One Multi synth where I took the Giant and studio strings in Kontakt and blended. 
Addictive Drums
Battery 4 Drums

The track is just a snap of my feeling.

Me in rocker mode... Follow me on Soundcloud

GLIB MACHINA

Mess around I don’t think so
You thought you knew the way
but you lied

When you go I will be glad
You will be sad

We only want what’s right
We only want what’s right

Look at you now!

(Chorus)
Look at them run around
Look at them up and down
Look at them, climbs all around 
Look at them find a way
Look at them in your head
Look at them try to tear it all down now!

We find a way back home
We find a way back….

Into the light
where you cannot hide

We only want what’s ours
Now you know what you want
but you can’t have it

(Chorus)
Look at them run around
Look at them play the clown
Look at them running’ all over town
Look at them in your face
Look at them all the rage
Look at them getting everything for themselves!

One thing you will know
Saddle up and see it grow
What once was lost is found
See it in the ground
See it in outer space
You were lied to about the human race
There’s protection beyond the spheres
But you’re filled with years of fears
I won’t play your way
I’m not going to be a slave

(Chorus)
How 'bout run around
Why do you see a clown-- 
Why don’t you stick it up your ass instead
Don’t you dictate to me
I won’t listen
I won’t do what you tell me
Why don’t you look, 
Go up to your logo,
have sex and blow your mind!
Why don’t you go to school
Why don’t you look up
Can’t see your own two hands 
tied behind your back

Criss cross those fingers…….

ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE




Attitude of Gratitude
A tune by...

Jaime J Ross: Vocals, Lyrics, piano
Zeph Daniel: Drums, Synths solo, Production/MixUp
ThePhaige: Lyrics, Vocals, Some other instruments

Sometimes I need a bit of perspective, I can get caught up in the day to day annoyances, the news around that isnt good or the misunderstanding with a friend. Sometimes taking the little things for granted or becoming overly intense about this or that and I just need to take a deep breath and think of all the things I have to be grateful for and there are so many things. Lets start with my co creators of this tune. When I went to Jaime with this she was all over the idea of coming up with some lyrics to the simple chorus I had jotted down and some awesome piano which she so came up with and sounds so amazing in the piece. It just sounds so bright and happening. We wanted to sing this harmony style and Im just so happy and grateful for Jaime and her infectious vibe. She came with these great lyrics that were so fun to sing. We sometimes go deep on the lyrical content but we really wanted to stay light and simple here.

So we then passed this over to Zeph who was getting antsy.  He had these killer drum riffs he wanted to put with the track and man do they POP! then I wanted him to do a Synth solo and left a spot for that and Zeph came in with this Emerson, Lake and Palmer on helium vibe that is just perfect in my ear and has a high degree of happiness to it. He really spent a lot of time on the mix and Im sure at times hes would have been grateful if I would just leave him be so he could do his thing. haha I had a blast doing this one and I hope it shows in the finished piece.

Lyrics

The alarm clock is screamin
The coffee is on
The day starts so early
The night..quickly gone

But I stop and I think
How many have not
A job to wake up to
And that...I have got

I'm all about...and attitude of gratitude
I got no room...for hypocritical platitudes
So if you want to join me on my contentment quest
Grab on my coattails and let us...experience the best

I sit down each weekend
And i deal with my debts
Easy come easy go...the pockets empty
I have no regrets

But I'm warm and my belly
Is wonderfully fed
I've a roof to live under
And a nice...comfy bed

Gratitude is everything
Gratitude is everything

The blisters are rockin 
The soles of my feet
Car tire and a nail
Two things that did meet

Miles into nowhere
With no help in sight
Cannot let these times
Get us down

Appreciation for all these things must take flight
Appreciation for all these things
