About 15 years ago I produced lots of tracks just for fun (roughly from 2005 to 2008). Exploring the possibilities of Fruity Loops and famous old VST’s as Albino, Vanguard and the Superwave Trance. I created about 50 complete tracks and uncountable ideas.

Just reopening this projects after so many years is so much fun, although it took lots of times to trace the original drum samples (after switching computers for 4 times). I recorded some unfinished projects and made a compilation video of 8 of those 'playing' sessions with projects 'to finish someday'


This video contains 8 ideas, which are not worked out yet. Only the main patern exists, so no automation, no intro's, the buildups in this video are spontaneous... But they give an idea of what the tracks could sound like 😉 The problem is I'm pretty good in the creative process, love to write melodies and choose the right sounds. But I'm not so good in terms of mastering and use of FX. I'm a great writer, an average producer but a bad engineer. So if anyone feels the need to work those tracks out (together with me of course), just contact me. Enjoy!
Some great sounding ideas in here, a lot of variation as well!

My old music from 2006 to 2010 is on an old mac, cant get it to windows. But have some tracks from the last years, didnt care about mixing so they are quite bad

Here an ambient track, its a collage of 12 impro loops with different lengths

Thats a G-House track with rap sample

That techno track is downright evil sounding :devilish:

I like it!

Doesn’t feel like 2 years since I put this out. Don’t think I’ve ever posted this on here either!

Anyway, it’s my most popular track so far sitting at 81k views. Absolutely no idea why this blew up so much at the time, the YouTube algorithm works in mysterious ways I suppose :LOL:

One of my very early Magdelayna tracks from 2005 - quite a strange one to describe - i took exerts from Sarah Brighman's Time To Say Goodbye for the samples. It turned into an atmospheric Progressive/Chilled Trance thing. And yes,it is over 11 minutes long!

As some of you may (or may not) know. I took a massive hiatus from making music before jumping back in early 2020.
I'd lost most of my music from the early-mid 2000's and have been hunting down bit's and pieces of my back catalogue for a few years.

So I thought it would be fun if we had a thread where we can post our older material (and in an attempt to breathe some life into this forum!)

I appreciate a few of you have not been producing for long, but feel free to jump in as well.



So this is a track I only recently got the full version of back (Shout out to Calvin!) I'd previously only had a set ripped version from the Tranceaddicts Unite Mix from way back when.
He's also hooked me back up with the Endre remix of this as well, but sadly the file is a bit damaged and skips a lot. I might still upload it anyway at some point.

I was like 19 years old when I made this back in early 2003 and while I knew how to write and arrange music, I had absolutely no clue on how to mix a track properly (as you can no doubt hear) :LOL:

Bonus:
I also found the original thread from 2003 on the old TA forums:


I have no idea what the [extended hifi version] nonsense is all about before you ask 😂
But it's great to see some of the old faces on there; Mart, Shepless, Endre, John O'Callaghan, Bryan Kearney, Icone and all the rest - what a hotbed of talent that place was back then!

Anyway, enough of me - get posting your old tunes!







I like the dirty character and most importantly a very classic approach. I wish you would go back a little back in those times. great

today you are very sterile, but that's also good

I have a request, can you throw me midi to this piece?

I'm in trouble with motivation, can't get started, and this song has great potential, would you let me try?
