Who am I and what is this all about?
Hi there! I'm LFOMG (but you can call me Johnny), a Los-Angeles-based dubstep producer in bit of a tight spot. My laptop is on the brink of death which means I wouldn't be able to continue my passion and finish my three Dubstep albums (an all metal/dubstep EP my Bass Salts EP (zombies + dubstep), and also a free EP). I have decided to start this campaign to help fund the costs of completing my three upcoming Dubstep albums, getting the songs mastered (to get them sounding crisp), building/hosting a website to share my dream with to others, and getting these songs on iTunes/Beatport.
Take a listen to the song in the video "Dreamscape" to get a glimpse of what I do. It'll be on my upcoming EP and with your help it'll be released! I love making music and remixing others so if you want me to make you a song, remix one or dedicate one exclusively to you I'd be more than happy to:)
EP estimated release dates (assuming funding is successful):
Free EP - Early May (5-6 tracks)
Bass Salts EP - Late May (3 tracks)
Metal/dubstep EP - Late June/early July (4 tracks)
My overall goal
Metal/dubstep album: My overall goal with my metal/dubstep album is to get as many metal/rock-loving people to get into dubstep and other electronic genres. I have been fan of metal music for a long time and see the direct correlation between the heaviness of dubstep and metal music. I incorporate many elements of metal music in the electronic music I make (live guitar, double kick drumming, heavy use of crash/splash cymbals, high energy sounds) and they tend to blend quite well! The metal/dubstep album I'm working on, "Oscillatocide", will have original song collaborations with very talented musicians/vocalists playing guitar, drums, as well as impeccable vocalists with me creating dubstep beats to go along with them. It WILL raise quite a few eyebrows and you can be a part of it! You can listen to an early effort and see the great response here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpRb2IvZEEU
Bass Salts EP: I know plenty of people love high-energy music and zombies! This album will get many zombie fans to grasp how powerful dubstep is. It will include my original "zombiestep" song "Bass Salts" (yes, it's a spinoff of the Miama bath salts attack :D) which you can listen to here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ixttr-EADPg This song has the support by the LA dubstep legend 12th Planet! This album will also include a VIP (a remix of it by myself) as well as a remix by another incredibly talented producer.
Free EP: I've always given away my music for free because I truly enjoy spreading positivity to people. I gave away over 100 copies of my first paid album to some amazing people and got some heartfelt responses that made me all bubbly inside. I want to give something back to the dubstep community with this EP for helping me get this far in achieving my dream. The best part is, this is definitely my best work to date. I will not simply rush this and give away inferior music just because it's free. I'm putting my heart and soul into this EP and you can name a song on it if you'd like!
I appreciate you taking time out of your most-likely hectic day to read this. Even if you can't find the means to donate, just know that I'm glad you're here listening to a creation of mine (and hopefully enjoying it:D).
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
I must create the most audibly-pleasing music I possibly can and I can definitely do that with a computer that doesn't lag to high heaven. :D
It's exhibiting the same symptoms that it has before it died the first time, but that time it was under warranty and I had it replaced. Now that it's out-of-warranty there's nothing I can do but get a new laptop.
Screen-faliures, hard drive errors, incredibly sluggish performance. It overheats so bad it fried the internal wiring of the keyboard and trackpad so 10 keys don't work as well as the trackpad. I have to use an external mouse/keyboard. The webcam BSODs the laptop when activated. The screen glitches and shuts off when you move/touch the lid. The headphone jack is broken so it's incredibly hard to listen to/make music with. Basic tasks (even saving an image) freezes the system for around 10-30 seconds. This is one horrid machine that has been giving me so much stress and trouble.
I'm officially releasing the pack once the project is funded :)
