I was asked about Leila, about who she is and why I even mention that pretty name. We had a nice discussion on Facebook, and it still goes on. While I'm here, I just wanted to say once again that Leila means very much to me, not as a musician and not as a friend but more like... happening. Something that happened to me.
This track was never shared before, though it's 3 years old. Please enjoy it, and all the mailing list subscribers will have a download by the end of month. There's no way I'm going to hide this music here anymore.
As you may know, I've got Maslo licensed for use in PIU Pro2 game.
The following post concerns people who actually play this game, as I do.
(1) I did edit steps for the song and want to present them to you. :)
For the download link, read further.
(2) During research, I've discovered that the quality of the track was noticeably degraded. Compared to the original lossless track I gave to developers, the game's cut sounded way worse than 320kbps ogg should. This, and also some minor syncing issues, are fixed in the simfile you can download from the link above, but still I wonder, did other respectful producers like Sanxion, Celldweller (Switchback is clearly offsync on the machine!), Zircon etc. that were licensed by Fun in Motion noticed that their product was processed, to say so, ineffectively? And will we have a single music game machine that's delivered from syncing and editing issues? I would be gald to see that, and I have to admit that Pro 2 got as close as it probably could, and still I'm looking for more.
This whole piece was done far from home studio in my friends' places.
Russian verb "plutat" means "to stray".
Write me a word. Long time no see. :)
I really hope you like it.

Have you got any? :)
Thank you for sharing this.
I first heard Maslo in Pump It Up Pro 2. The song really caught my attention, so I went online to look for it and found the full version here. The first time I heard the full version, it blew me away and moved me to tears. I have listened to it over and over many times since then, and it still blows me away (and also sometimes moves me to tears again). Your technical skill as a producer is amazing, but it wouldn’t mean anything without all the emotion you put into the music. You have such great attention to detail, every little inflection on the notes and sounds just tugs at my heart.
I personally feel that this song perfectly expresses many of the emotions I’m going through right now. But music is subjective, and I wonder what you were feeling when you wrote this song. I would guess, something completely different than what I feel when I hear it :) One of the beautiful things about music, every listener can have a different personal experience of it.
Great work. I cannot even express to you how much I am moved by it.
Maslo means a lot to me. It stands right on the edge between… let’s say between what I want to do (as a musician) and what I want to hear (as a sound engineer if I can call myself that). It wasn’t the thing that was woooorked and wooorked out hard — it's something that just, well, happened to me, and I think you know what I mean. It lived without me and grew that way.
But it’s not the point.
These days my mind is getting more and more seduced by electronic music, and the majority of it is tasteless, frigid trash that teaches us to follow dancefloor standard. It feels like someone is pushing me far from my beloved notes to cold and fearless synths, and I can’t resist. And every single word in your comment just drags me back to the world where I want to belong to, where I really want to stay now for some time. It seemed that there’re not so much of these words left for me, but still…
“Thank you for sharing this.”.
Who is the guy who lend his voice on Smells Like A Chocolate? :D
Nice!! :) Our team (which is HUGE, you know! *sparkling smile*) had to choose between Gackt and Tony Colman but we ended up picking me because I don't have a lawyer.
Seriously, I like to pretend that I know how to sing. Yeeeah, right.
Thanks for your comment, it made me smile :)
whoa wait a second what happened to Video Out F?
Yes! And we have a winner here! ;D I'm doing video out (insertletterhere) series since... oh god, since 2005. :D so it's quite a custom already. Rik was the first one to notice that the line of a, b, c, d, and e suddenly was followed with video out g and still lacks F — thank you for your attention! video out g was based on a draft for video out f. :) That's why.
You'd like to ask something special, too? I'm keen to hear your questions.
I'd like to sincerely thank everyone mentioned in this post. Write me back again, please.
It's there, done in one day, only vocal line is used, everything else is original. So, Nu:Tone - Broken (featuring Kyan) (Vospi remix) is available in the music section, and I really hope you'll enjoy that one.
If you're a DJ and would like to have the track in HQ, message me.
And don't forget to have a nice day. :)
Letting a lust to go over your mind is OK.
However, you should be careful.
...or it will wear you out.
Get new track called Excessive Sex from the music section. Please post your comments, and I hope the track is enjoyable for you.
Best regards, -Vospi
OK, now that's a shame!
I always thought that Pump step editing team needs some new members invasion, at least in the terms of syncing. Still, I can't believe my eyes. :) God, let me in, I'll fix EVERYTHING they got wrong in that machine! :)
BUT! NO MATTER WHAT! We're in PUMP IT UP now. And that's for real. And that is great.
Thanks EVERYONE for supporting this. It's great you like the song! Finally it made its way to the audience through all these years, and I'm happy, too. Honestly, I'd like to participate more in the life of PIU, I got skills and ideas, but... But even if it's the last time I had a chance — you know, it's a great thing to feel. Thanks Andamiro, thanks Fun In Motion staff (you do know that I mean you! and you! and you! great stepcharts! slick banner! rock solid sync! and your politeness! is something that I won't forget) and... thank you who sang this melody along, even if it happened once in your life.
Say HOLA, party people!!

Vospi - Nervous
get it. here.
Once upon a time Imogen has decided to produce a new track together with her fans.
She thought through everything well: people were sending their thoughts and ideas to her using their creative skills. One day she was making her way through the sounds sent, and the other day she was already watching video/photo seeds; one more day was spent to review lyrics ideas... She was live online daily and constantly, she was showing, telling, sharing, smiling to everyone who was ready to dedicate their time and skills to her. For the sake of her creative tasks, of course.
Without any doubt, I wasn't going to miss it!
One of those tasks was to create a solo for a part of the final track. Participants had to compose and record their solo over the section suggested by Imogen. Of course the final result was a lot more replete, but this base was enough to build on.
this is what imogenheap did for participants.
I was very nervous while shaping my parts. I think I never wasted this much time creating and balancing the bassline, frazzling my own nerves. There will be a LOT of participants! Imogen will choose something live and passionate for sure, but what I've got is just electronic instruments! what I'm going to do?! aaaaaah, help!!!
...at last I've persuaded myself that the best decision is to do something that will feel natural, without trying to conform to my guesses. And let chance decide.
that's what I've came up with for imogenheap.
This cut is the second edition. Here's the first one, without the vocal lines.
I took my liberty to change the original chord progression.
I've sampled my voice and have chopped and cropped it as well.
Imogen moved my version to the "preferences" playlist, so the other day I was waiting with the butterflies in my belly. And thus... and thus I didn't made it to the track called Imogen Heap - Lifeline, and the only thing I got now is the second she spelled my nickname and played my parts — and it was surely the moment when my heart fell down just for a second. Here's a tiny video clip of ms. Heap talk.
Everyone has a choice when to make himself an idol. And I think my chimera still exists.
It's just as well.
