Genre Generator the Android App | Out Now On Google Play

An Android App, written in Java, called Genre Generator is my latest piece of work available at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rekapper.genregenerator

Genre Generator

Genre Generator Icon

This app is a Music Genre Generator which has a fine wide collection of various genres to shuffle around and from to create some real genres like Surf-Rock all the way to wacky ones like Sunshine-Dubstep.  This is all built with the easy ability to share with the android intents so that you can choose where you would like to share it to. Equally it is built with the ability to share with the native twitter app or with the mobile website if you don’t have that installed. Eventually the list of genres will expand but currently there are over 5000 different combinations so try to come across something that has never been done before. I’ve even made it easy to just click the ‘Search Youtube’ button and you can checkout the listings on Youtube for that genre tied with the native google tools Youtube to avoid tying up your android device.

Genre Generator was all built around the concept that you could always use more genres to work with as a musician so that you could never get bored especially as an electronic musician. And maybe you can find something so obscure that you can make the first version of the genre ever or even challenge your friends to create it.

Here are some screenshots from the App running:

Flying Batteries – Wear Headphones

Flying Batteries “Wear Headphones”

Is their latest full release which is a stereophonic recipe of driven rock with a tasteful helping of shoegaze and synthpop all tied together by a dash of scotch.  The album is by far my favorite release of the Flying Batteries with vast amounts of color and dynamic range across their rocking album.  This time around they even have tracks like Faded Smile which have just a touch of similarity to other pop hits from the 2000’s.  Be sure to checkout the full album, or even buy the CD.

So far, as the details are released about this final Nujabes and Shing02 single called Perfect Circle, we know that it will be a 12″ record through Hydeout Productions, and will include the typical instrumental, and A cappella.

Here is the official release now featured on youtube:

Perfect Circle will be released on October 7th, this year (2015).  Early samples of the instrumental were provided by Shing02 having some fun and showing off his skills on the Vestax Faderboard down below:

It also appears according to the Hydeout site: http://hydeout.net/ that there is a remix produced by Uio Loi who’s soundcloud we can find here: https://soundcloud.com/uioloi or examples of his more uptempo chip EDM oriented music like this track:

It will be interesting to see how these remixes turn out.  More details will be shared as soon as they are made available.

The Cinematic Orchestra – Evolution II (Remixed by PC)

Something felt right about sharing this glorious breakbeat/latin/jazz/deep house remix track of The Cinematic Orchestra just factoring how influential this has been on my own music and I’m sure is the same case for tons of other house artists.  The music itself does all the talking so I’ll leave it to that other then the point this would work perfect along with some light night Tokyo lights/racing/subway/city-life oriented video.
