Cherry Red Lips [Milkytracker and Live Drums]

It’s been two years since my last Milkytracker and Drummer video, but now the time has finally come for a new one! This track is called, Cherry Red Lips, and I made all the samples and music within Milkytracker on a 2004 iBook G4 1.42ghz. I then recorded the drums in Pro Tools 7.4 with an Mbox 1 also on the iBook. The video was created in Kdenlive on Ubuntu 18.04LTS on my Dell Gaming Inspiron 5k Drums used: Tama Imperialstar Bop (2015 discontinued, 18″ kick, 12/14 toms, 14 snare.

Anika Nilles Debut LP, PIKALAR, Announced!!!

I have not been this excited for the announcement of an LP in a REALLY LONG TIME. Maybe not ever! Anika Nilles is probably my biggest drummer inspiration in the past several years, and up until now we’ve only had her hand full of youtube singles to satisfy our need for more Nilles. Now there’s a full LP coming out that’s been in the works for the past year and a half.

Nilles mentions in the video that she wanted the album to be more for people who love music and not just for drummers. Though some may be nervous with this statement, to me this is great news. Her newer tracks have been moving into a more Synthwave direction (But with sick live drums) and I’d love to hear more of that type of work on PIKALAR!

So excited about this! Official release date is February 27th!
