Silicon Slave is proud to present Broken Silence, a unique collection of glitchy, broken-beat sounds designed by artists from Canberra, Australia. Each track has been carefully selected to reflect the unique kinks and quirks of the artists who’ve made them. It begins with nothing, a blank canvas of silence on which we paint the sounds of our lives. That peaceful serenity is soon broken by the tearing of cellophane synths, the deep rumble of gnarly bass lines and crunchy, twisted, drum beats which ring out to signal the new sound. As it progresses and evolves, Broken Silence takes on a more laid back, organic character, incorporating live instruments and funked out sampling reminiscent of old school hip-hop. It’s a musical time machine that’ll take you to the future and past simultaneously. So get your groove on to Broken Silence: a mixed up smorgasbord of ideas, new and old. Mastering by Silicon Slave and artwork by Alana Wilkinson.

    For this moment it’s not for me…

  • Barry says:

    Nice sampling of Pink Floyd’s “Hey You” in “Drop Kick” :-)

  • bassfass says:

    The mastering has no dynamics whatsoever.

    Another release from OZ with great tracks let down by the mastering. We have a huge beautiful community, I know for a fact there are folks more skilled to give this lovely music the breath of life that is lacking on the flat responses of this music.

  • Silicon Slave says:

    This was my first attempt at mastering a VA – it was a great learning experience and I think the tracks came out sounding pretty decent. I actually did quite a bit of work trying to get the whole thing sounding like a single, cohesive idea – as the production styles varied quite a bit. I’m sorry you thought the dynamics were lacking – its difficult to achieve mastering that is both loud enough to compare with commercial releases, while still keeping a good amount of dynamic range. As I continue to work, mastering a variety of different songs, my finished masters will become more nuanced and dynamic – but I cant ever improve if I dont actually master anything.
    All the best,

    sounds nice… but I found a pink floyd song in the song number 04 (heartbeat)

  • nymphomania says:

    That’s the thing, you don’t have to think about being ‘loud enough to compare with commercial releases’. There is no way to be that loud and keep dynamics. You simply must be quieter.

    It’s easy for any DJ to even volumes between songs

  • Travis says:

    Wow. Thank you. This is blowing my mind right now. Keep doing things that are like this :)
