I just uploaded a new song I finished today, but there are 10 older ones available on the site too. It's all made in Reason 6.5, and I could list the REs I use if anyone wants to know.
The concept of this 11 tracks so far, and the ones that will follow was originally to upload every song I ever wrote, in chronological order, but it didn't quite turn out that way, because instead of just uploading the old finished work, I went through the old unfinished projects, and found something of use to write a new song from in almost each one of them. Only the oldest song on the site is exactly as it was written back in 2002, the rest are based on material I wrote in 2002 and finished in the past year.
The latest one should be on the front page of the link. It's called Redeo.

Enjoy. :)

Cool. Not my style of music exactly, but I still enjoyed it. Personally I enjoyed the more low key parts that were just a bass, drums, and a little synth coloring or texture as opposed to the parts with the bigger lusher sounds that sounded like a sawtooth or something. (I'm not a great listener, don't know if that's what it was). But anyway, at least for me, on this track, less is more. That's how I tend to like most of my music though so take it with a grain of salt.

Like this. Very into the Acid sound & the down tempo, minimal stuff can sound very hypnotic & sexy.

I urge you to check out this release if you have not already;

Thanks, that first song was exactly up my alley. :)

Cool style.  I especially liked Redeo with the delayed piano that I think gave a really powerful contrast to the 303 lines.  I also agree with reasonuser27 that this hits on a deeper level than a lot of acid music.

If you're interested, I did a track about 6 years ago that also uses a 303 in a non-standard way.  In my case, it's in the context of Industrial Metal instead of you laid-back downtempo vibe.  Here's a link:  https://somedesperateglory.bandcamp.com ... your-words

TW the 303 comes in at the 1:00 mark.
Still nostalgic about the old days, writing songs with my Amiga 500, Korg M1, and Ensoniq ASR-10 sampler.

This is the one I listened to and I really like it!  Nice deep, progressive feel.  I'm not really a fan of acid music but you deliver in such a way that is much appreciated.  I think the tempo is just right, the pads are great and the flute sounds are fulfilling.  I think this hits on a deeper and more intelligent level than a lot of the acid music I've heard in the past and that is great.
Thanks. :)

Industrial metal definitely isn't my style, but I did enjoy the 303 in there, and the production is fun. :)

I was supposed to be asleep by now, but there was a change of plans, so I wrote a song instead. More details at the song page. :P

Interesting. I've probably never heard this down-tempo acid before - but it's very groovy. In the second half of this track I really don't like the flute sound....despite this it's really cool. ;)

I think Norman Cook said it best when he said: "Everybody needs a 303."

Always up for some acid, this is a bit too downtempo for my tastes, but I even have a problem with Deep House being too slow so don't take it to heart. Lusos Ludum is really cool love the drums in it, so much going on it's really holding my attention and it has a really dark vibe that's almost scary. Pretty deep stuff D: Nice acid again in Emulsion, just a bit too slow for my liking but it definitely suits the dark mood. By the way, on your Bandcamp page there are pictures where someone appears to be tied up, I think they might need some help.

Thanks, and that's me tied up there, I'm perfectly fine, no need to call for help. :D

Here's an ancient one of mine, from 2004. I don't think it'll get any complaints for being too low in tempo. :P

I managed to rescue the original of that one you liked, though it came back with a different kick drum. :P
https://melodyklein.bandcamp.com/track/v3-1

Before that, when I still thought it's hopeless, I tried to recreate it, with some of my more modern trappings, but just a bit of those, this was the result:

And just now I rescued another oldie from 2005:

:D
