Simon Stokes treats with some nice live techno during these dark mornings, featuring a Virus TI2
**PLEASE WATCH IN 720p HD!**
**The sound quality is still ravaged (especially the subs), but it is marginally better..**
Thanks for checking this out!
I can’t believe it’s actually been 10 months since I lasted posted a video of me making some live techno – thanks to anyone who has forgiven me and is still watching.. :]
All sorts of great things have happened this year – I have been playing more around the UK and internationally, putting out some tracks with some really nice labels and generally just enjoying myself.
This track is inspired by a recent visit to the Warehouse Project to see an epic set by Ricardo Villalobos & Raresh – he tore the place a new one and I think this track captures how it felt for me. This time round it’s a thudding techno track – very stripped, but chunky as well. The Virus is creating all the sounds in realtime as I play it, and Ableton is providing the percussion, controlled by my UC-33e.
I love making music, but I really get my kicks when other people enjoy listening to it. Please leave a comment or any feedback that you have for me, it will be warmly appreciated.
If you have any questions, I’m always happy to answer them so post a comment or send me a message.
