Music is my drug that I will spend money to obtain if the sound is right, I always seek out the most interesting music to help propel my art and the story that I choose to draw, write or direct. I have come across many new composers of music. Today I will share some of the creators I feel worth to get my money, some or many have worked on things I have a connection to from my youth, such as music from a game or animation. Most will be scores so that simply means no vocals or minimal vocals. I may throw in a few with vocals at the end but we shall see. The first I have to point out is the most recent addition to my list is Sam Dillard his website has his collection of awesomeness. http://samostudios.tumblr.com/.
I will simply list the rest with a small reason why i purchased their album with a link to their respective websites.
Bad-Dudes, they created a Chrono Trigger album which sounded awesome, totally sold after that. Nothing else to add well maybe the fact that I saw their music on a retrogame website. http://baddudesmusic.com/#discography
M83 wow, how can I describe this talent, he had all original music which was totally mesmerizing. I found his music by accident nine or so years ago all I know is I had it saved in my youtube favorites and playlist and several years ago I simply wanted to find out who was the artist who did the music. Unfortunately I could not pin point the artist as the music could not be detected by shizaam which was weird either way I was able to track him down the song in question was “Lower your eyelids to die with the sun”-featured in this skateboard vid.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZIk5YervWU I was totally sold and tracked down all his albums and bought everyone. If you want more on them check here. Oh and he did music for Oblivion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mkUp1V3ys0
Blake Robinson another talent that blew me away with what he did to the chrono trigger symphony collection. Check out his websites http://blakerobinson.co.uk/ and http://syntheticorchestra.com/ I was in love when I found his music. Not much else to say on that.
Richie Branson (born Marcus Brown II) His music was a take to a different level and I actually enjoyed it when not working as too much vocals keep mind really busy. http://richiebranson.com/
Disasterpiece http://disasterpeace.com/ This creator created some of the music for most of the indy games I love Hyper Light Drifter to name a few. Check him out.
The last I will mention is Fela Kuti, I came across Fela’s music through Pandora and I was not aware of this Man. Once I did my research I realized he was an amazing dude with many faults. I won’t get into much detail if you need more simply read up here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fela_Kuti
These clusters are ones that I could relax to, MGMT, Lumineers,Jonsi,Devotchka, The Neighbourhood and Of monsters and men. there are many more but these are the ones I can go back to and get some meaningful work plus they are less known well except for the Lumineers I am not sure how well know is MGMT.
