Oasis gets ohmified by Chemical Brothers

Chemical Brothers

We’ve just received a nice mail from Tom Rowlands of Chemical Brothers (the guy at the right side of the picture). We’re glad to see our Ohmicide:Melohman between one of the biggest electronic acts of the world and a brit pop legend from last decades. The track he’s talking about is here.

Cohmpetition Winners Announcement

Cohmpetition's prizes!

It was REALLY hard to choose. When you have a contest where more than a half of the submissions are fairly well produced and nicely inspired, it becomes about listening to the tracks several and several times, to find the little details that push or pull each one up or down at the ranking. So don’t be depressed if you’re not at the top10, it doesn’t mean at all that your track is bad, but it will show you, instead, that musical production/composition won’t always be  “painting from scratch with total creative freedom during the whole process”. We have given you some guidelines and directions to be followed, and it’s commonly known that very often some ‘limitations’ help us to stimulate/boost creativity. Winners have followed the guidelines, but with inspired and creative solutions to create good music within the boundaries. So we have ranked the submissions based in, in order of importance: “followed the guidelines + fits well in the novel”, “originality + creativity”, “overal production quality” and “how many positive comments in the blog”. Each ohmforcian has his own creepy musical tastes, so the aspect “music style” was completely ignored. We like music, good music.

1- Kylo

2- Stephan Roemer

3- Steve T

4- Veit Winkler

5- Paul Raisbeck

6- Alexandre Borcic

7- Apeskinny

8- Hunger Ghost

9- Stuart Fox

10- Boblefrançaismoyen

It was really great to have 35 (!!!) submissions, and we’d want to celebrate it in a generous way, so we have decided to expand the prizes up to the top5. It means that Veit and Paul will get a free  Minmonsta:Melohman, and since Veit wasn’t able to control his addiction and bought the monsta even before the final result announcement, we’ll offer him an Oddity instead. We couldn’t know if it would please you, but if you guys want us to publish the list up to the top20, just drop a comment and if we see that there’s quorum, we post it. Congratulations to all participants, and thanks for helping save the world! Music could be a powerful weapon, indeed.

Ohm Force METAL

russ-russelWe’ve just received a nice mail from Russ Russel from the Parlour Studio team (UK): ” – Just wanted to say how much i’m diggin ohmicide – its like you’ve been listening in to the noizes i’ve been having in my head for years.  I’ve been using it extensively on the new Napalm Death album and it’ll be my default weapon of attack from now on.” In additional of Napalm Death, Russ have already produced albums for Dimmu Borgir, The Berzerker, The Wildhearts, among other top bands from the dark and shady metal world. After the “Smear Campaign” album in 2006, Napalm has been just touring and recording – next album will be released very soon, stay tuned…

Cohmpetition officially closed

WOW…. this cohmpetition really surprised us, it’s being the most crowded cohmpetition of the Ohm Force history, and we’re really happy about that. Not only because of the submissions amount – as quantity has never been a synonym of quality – but specially due the fact that the overall quality level is…. we could say… OUTSTANDING. You guys really rocks. So we apologise ourselves again for being late when put the last ones online, and benefit from the moment to ask a picture to those who haven’t sent one yet (and would want to do it). Ideally on 450×250, but it could be bigger, and than we crop it. Now it will be time to listen again, and again, to each submission, in order to pull the best from the good. Stay tuned…

Last submission comes from Sweden

The last submission of this cohmpetition comes from Sweden and it’s called “Ohm Tag”. Slaslars made an intro that with a high-pitched background sound that makes us think on the noise that mice do, we mean, a massive mice population; maybe all the rats that have been slowly biting the financial system during last decades. Then there’s a warm bass and a distorted filtered lead sound that is powerful enough to kill the rats noise, click here to listen and trip on it you too..

Pakic from Serbia is in the house again

One of the “last last minute” submissions we received during the weekend comes from an already ‘old time friend’, since Branislav Pakic from Serbia has already participated in the last cohmpetition – the video tutorial one – for which he made a nice tutorial for the Ohm Boyz delay. Now Pakic is completely confortable with the media – since it’s music we’re talking about, and presents us a track in which we notice, in addition of the Minimonsta:Melohman flavors, several OhmBoyz, Ohmicide:Melohman and OhMyGod! spices… click here to listen…
