“Rissa EP” – PowerFrancers vs D-Bag

OK, this one is in Italian, again (as we did with Dargen D’Amico – D’ – parte prima, we are switching to our original language. Rissa is the italian for “affray, bobbery, riot, fight”, so you get the picture – the coversleeve speak itself)
I PowerFrancers esordiscono su Flat Frog con D-Bag e portano ‘Rissa’ negli store digitali.
Il testo è parla da solo e non esitiamo a definirlo rivoltoso.
Già presente nella homepage di iTunes, il pacchetto contiene due remix oltre la versione Original. D-Bag rilavora la traccia inserendo un po’ della sua classica ‘cattiveria’ e i “The ‘S'” chiudono il tutto con la loro reinterpretazione.

Il duo è presente sulla scena già da diverso tempo e Pacchiani e Goldentrash (questi i nomi d’arte dei componenti del duo) non sembrano intenzionati a fermarsi. Già ospiti a Tropical Pizza (su Deejay) e presenti con i loro inimitabili promo, le loro recenti collaborazioni con D-Bag porteranno ad un EP previsto entro il 2010.
D-Bag dal canto suo ha visto i suoi brani finire nelle playlist di Foamo e si è preso il ‘like’ di DJs quali StereoHeroes, Don Rimini, Edu K. E le sue tracce son state remixate da Gigi Barocco, Calvetron e Blaze Tripp solo per citarne alcuni.

i-Tones iPhone Ringtones (Suoneria Sonnerie Klingeltöne Tono)

It would be veeeeery nice if you could customize your iPhone 4 (or 3GS,3G, or 2, actually whatever phone you use) with a ringtone which is only yours, isn’t it?

Off Limits delivered a set of complete packages for your phone. Spanning from ‘electro’ ringtones to more classical-sofisticated tones and finally to more ‘poppy’ sounds.
Moreover, in the iTunes version of the release, every package recently delivered comes with a set of ready-made ringtones taken from the tracks.

Apple hasn’t made it easy for you to customize your phone with these sets of ringtones but there’s a workaround. It’s not difficult and you don’t need anything except iTunes and an iPhone. The tutorial is clearly aimed at iPhones, as it’s tied to iTunes, anyway, if you convert the ringtones to the MP3 format and your phone supports that format, you’ll be able to use that ringtones  even on your mobile device.

Let’s make things easier. Here’s the video tutorial (the sound track is a collection of some of the ringtones you can find on the compilations, which are called ‘i-Tones‘. Search for them on the iTunes store.


The steps are easy and we re-write tem heredown:
1 – Go to iTunes and get the ringtones. i-Tones vol. 1, i-Tones vol. 2, i-Tones vol.3 … or search for ‘i-Tones  and navigate through the available audios
2 – Once downloaded the file, you’ll have to convert it to a ‘iPhone ready’ format. Convert it to ‘AAC format’.
You can do this by going to the “Advanced” Menu on iTunes and then choosing ‘Create AAC version’. If you find a different encoding (i.e. “Create MP3 version”, you have to set the compression format in iTunes preferences. It is necessary to convert it to an AAC file, otherwise it won’t be playing on your iPhone).
3 – Drag the file you just converted out of iTunes, and save it to the desktop, for example. Rename the extension of the file to ‘m4r’ (it was ‘m4a’)
4 –  Re-drag the newly named file into i-Tunes. A new ‘source’ will appear: Ringtones.
5 – Connect your iPhone to your Mac/Pc and in the available tabs a ‘ringtone’ tab will appear, so that you can choose and transfer to your phone the ringtone you just created.
6 – Open the Settings of your iPhone, then tap ‘Sounds’, then ‘Ringtone’ and ther you’ll see te list of available ringtones for your telephone, under the ‘Custom’ group.
7 – It’s done!Now go and spread the word!

Download ACapella , Synths, Bass Drums for your projects

If you landed here searching for Kelis’ A Capella, well, this is not the page you should be looking for. But wait: do you know what ‘A Capella’ means?
A Capella‘ comes from the italian (better, latin – which was the official church language in the past) and it was the form of singing in Choirs, and it means “without instruments”.
The term is now used to intend the ‘vocal only’ (vocal meaning the voice separated) part of a song.
You normally don’t have access to such feature of a recording, for different reasons, the first being that most of the consumer are not interested in hearing such track(s). If you are a music producer, this kind of resource is instead really useful to you and gives you access to a potential enormous stream of opportunities.
The same goes for the ‘separate tracks’ that compose the full song.
So you are a producer and you are looking for that ‘killer synth’ that sounds so good in that track.
The good news is: you can get the separate stems.
For some of the projects born in Off Limits studios, we prepared a ‘producer pack’, meaning we’re giving you the opportunity to download the  single constituting parts of the track you are listening in full.
You are then able to play with the single parts, recycle them, have a different mix, re-use, re-create the track. Or you can even use and embedd them in your original tracks.
Obviously, the standard copyright laws apply. This means that, when you are done you can use what yo did for your personal use only. If you want to use them in a commercial way, you’ll need to get the proper authorization from the copyright holder.
