RE: Writing Music Challenge: "The Beauty and The Sea" by Steve Rachmad for "The Ocean Project" - a collab between Pulitzer Pricing winner Ian Urbina and Electronic Producers

Very ambient stuff, reminds me of Jan Hammer at times, the dude who did the Miami Vice music. I bought his album as it hit a chord with me.

Sort:  

Am very familiar with Jan Hammer. Have the Miami Vice album as well, on CD, maybe one of the first CDs I ever purchased. Some of the tracks on the "The Beauty and The Sea" are for the dance floor, these are in the direction of what Detroit Techno was in the 90s, beat with ambient-ish sounds. Something totally different, and one of Steve's hardest techno production, is filter madness, a release he published under one of his so many alter ego's "Dreg". As the title indicates: he produced this using filters on filters on filters. Back then a killer in the underground clubs before Techno became popular by the mass. Still LOVE this one. Listening as I write this comment; With a BIG SMILE on my face :)

But this may not be your thing at all... Ambient/Techno in the mix is this set recording (live stream last summer)... Note the opening track, its a variation of track 3 of the album...

Escape from Television it was called, it seems a long time ago. I can't say these tunes you posted do it for me, but that's music for you. I'm generally into more alternative stuff these days.

Here's a blast from the past, I'm sure you will remember it.

Very familiar tune; Thanks :)
