Hi my name is Justin McConachy a.k.a Krama/Kramavich,I’ve been making Techno since 1998 when i first got a copy of the program called Music from a mate,it was for my playstation original console, at the time i had just bought my first two turntables and mixer setup and was starting to dj so this new playstation game caught my eye instantly and from then on it was like a big jigsaw puzzle that I could create and determine the outcome, i was amazed,i studied the manuals,then i was off trying to make something that sounded like music. At the time i was into underground techno,house,trance,and punk with a little rock and pop,so my first creations were just this clashing of sounds put together to make this disturbing sound,but at the time sounded quite pleasing to my ears. Then HardTrance found ist’s way to my decks,this banging clear bassline and the melodic trance of the sawy anthems,this was then my intention to get my music creations to sound like that,which was not as easy as it seemed.So with these two hobbies to keep me busy the next two years flew by,then the sequel was released Music 2000 for palystation,a new program a new set of rules,with this brought new boundaries new limits new components,so this meant,manual study time again, mind you i’ve had no musical teachings I know of music only from what my ears hear,my eyes see, and my soul feels.
It was not long before i had mastered Music 2000 and was creating tracks you could listen to with ease,even puting Albums together,burning them to cd and handing them out to friends, i had even given my self a title a name a legacy: Kramavich...
From there it was to a new place a new year:2001,new friends new influences new music, Psytrance ,G.M.S./No rules-my first encounter with this erratic harmonic beat,i couldn’t leave until the CD was finished i was just mesmerized by the whole event,it marked a turning point in music creation.
Now making PsyTrance was my next task,but with also trying to create my own sound along the way,new tracks were created,new albums were burned, i had started to feel pleasure with each track created then felt i should now take the next step,go buy a computer get rid of the old playstation and get a professional music creation program,a friend mentioned Reason 3.
And so then it waz reset all over again in 2005,a new operating system + new software meant more study,i waz learning at quite a fast rate, and in just a few months i waz already into a new album,a new way of sound..
Even though the basic's from the old playstation software were somewhat mirrored in the reason 3 software, there waz still a HUGE amount of extra's invloved,which meant there waz so MUCH more that could be done with all sound.I waz LOVIN it..
So with the years became more learning,more tracks,more excitement and more unsigned or unmastered album's,which i handed out to my friends and people i would meet at parties or anyone i met whom waz interesred:)(:
While Living in London for two years in 2007,i kontinued writing music,going to parties and learning(of course),but after a while of going to party after party watching my heroes live,i begun to notice a trend. And that trend was A silver Apple laptop,so i wondered why? and did some snooping and came to the konklusion that they must of been using a different music program(Logic),which waz an Apple based software,which i could not use on my pc.
So it wasn't until 2009, i returned bak to oz and started to save some cash again,this waz good, i finally could acquire what i thought to be the bee's knee's of musik kreation,a macbook pro with logic pro..
And so once again a new operating system+new software meant more study +more excitement+more tracks +more albums and what you hear today:)(:The Kramavich:)(:
Please feel free to leave any feedback,
All my tunes Kmastered by me,
Thank you and Enjoy:)(:
