Andrew Wowk - The Bystander Effect by Andrew Wowk published on 2011/08/03 08:40:44 +0000 This is the completed version of "The Bystander Effect". It started out as an experiment in George Fitzgerald/Arkist/etc style future garage but after a considerable amount of tweaking and consideration, it really did end up working better as a techno tune. I'm heavily influenced by artists like Chymera, Funk D'Void, Greg Gow, Don Williams, Vince Watson, Percy X, John Tejada, Kirk Degiorgio, early Alexander Kowalski/Joris Voorn etc when it comes to techno, so you will hear a very strong connection to their styles in this tune mixed with my approach to writing music. *UPDATE* - took on board some feedback regarding EQing and sequencing. I've made the kick a bit chunkier but hollowed out some of the low end in it so the bassline can push through more. I've also made some minor edits to the filters/resonance on the synths in parts so it moves around a little more musically. They aren't big changes, but I think they are noticeable on a subconcious level, the tune feels a little less repetitive now. **ANOTHER UPDATE** - Taken even more feedback on board to now have the bassline less boomy and not so overpowering in the mix.
