Swedish hiphop album made completely in Linux!

Postby zth » Wed May 08, 2013 10:58 pm

(I realize I've been posting this on a lot of other sites too, and I'm sorry if I annoy anyone.. ;) )

Me and two of my best friends have a Swedish hiphop group together, where I produce the music/do the tech stuff etc, and they rap. We just, FINALLY, finished and released our first album, and it's completely made in Linux by us, from the first recording to the mix and master! I'm very happy that it has been possible to do this using almost exclusively free and open source software and plugins, it's incredibly fun!

The album consists of 13 tracks, and it's hopefully fairly different hiphop to what people are used to. But, it's all in Swedish unfortunately :D.

Just a quick list of software and plugins used:

KXStudio and its tools is the basis for it all (shoutout to falktx!)
Ardour2
Ardour3
Some Hydrogen
Calf plugins
Salamander Piano
TAL NoiseMaker
linuxDSP plugins
Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra
zita-dpl1

and likely more, just that I can't recall it all!

If you want to give it a go and check it out, even though it's in all Swedish, you can find the album (and Raptimus Prime in general) here:

Bandcamp: http://raptimusprime.bandcamp.com/
Soundcloud: http://www.soundcloud.com/raptimusprime

Album on PirateBay in various formats:
FLAC: http://thepiratebay.sx/torrent/8451980
OGG: http://thepiratebay.sx/torrent/8451976
MP3: http://thepiratebay.sx/torrent/8451978

It's also available at Spotify if anyone uses that.

Cheers everyone! Thanks all of you in the community, for making it possible to have so fun with free and open source software!

Dude ! I don't like hip hop at all but I must leave a comment because this is very good in its genre ! 8)
I definitely don't like the rap singing style but the instrumentals are awesome and way above the average and by far.
The whole thing is technically and musically very well crafted, hands down.
It would be interesting to hear the feed back from someone into hip hop.

Oh, thank you very much DoosC, I really really appreciate the comment! :D Thanks!!

We just put out our first music video too, at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJD1JWOTu4E . The video production is unfortunately not made in FLOSS, but maybe someone enjoys it anyway! :)

Cheers!
