Here's my track called ChemTrail Blazers.  Something happened in the making of it that reminded me of The Chemical Brothers and I didn't fight it.  I just dug in.    I'm of the thinking that you can't have too many Chemical Brothers songs, even if this one isn't by the Chemical Brothers.  At least one of you will love it.  Dig it.

So I released my third album Disrupt The Scene this year, featuring collaborations with rappers and vocalists from all over the globe. It was a fun experience going outside my own box by incorporating elements of hip hop and rock within my own production. I got to work with some amazing and talented people who I would love to continue working with. The album has gotten a pretty decent response online too, which is a great feeling. I've been releasing music under the alias Neorev since my debut back in 2003 on The Prodigy fan site compilation Brainkiller Presents Music From The Jilted Generation, which got me my radio debut on Italy's Radio 101. I would spend the next several years working on my first official release Lines & Shapes, mind you I did lose three years worth of music made within that period due to a hard drive failure. Lines & Shapes was my homage to the early 90's old school warehouse rave music that I grew up on, a collection of tunes aimed at the dancefloor. I started going and playing out more around the tri-state area. At the end of 2011, I  released a much darker record called "Children Of The Bomb." I took some inspiration from dubstep and bass oriented music along with my reaction to the social and political climate at the time here in the States. I think that's where the darkness and anger came from in my production. Things really started to pick up after its release and I built on that momentum by releasing supporting EPs over the next couple of years, packed with new and reworked tracks and remixes from fellow producers. I took a break from releasing music and performing during 2014 until I finally released "Disrupt The Scene" at the end of 2015. And here we are now. I've already begun working on its follow up.

I've also posted the full album on my Soundcloud and YouTube page...
http://soundcloud.com/neorev/sets/disrupt-the-scene


"Long Island's Neorev finally returns to the physical format after six years with bona fide "best of" that collects collaborative highlights from his now out of print Bandcamp EPs with some stunning new material, proving, once and for all, that he is the best electronic artist you've never heard of.

Disrupt the Scene carefully celebrates the many modes of electronic dance music without sacrificing artistic integrity in the process. Most of the tracks center on hip-hop, beginning with the opening onslaught of "Sway" featuring rapper Marcuss, who also appears on "So Twisted." Later, Centri brings a Kool Keith weirdness to "Prune Juice" and "Monetary Policy," while Villain completely dominates the hardcore drum & bass of "Rough, Rugged, N' Raw" and the dubstep attack of "Start the Revolution." Kid Versus Chemical even drops jaws on the Wu-Tang-inspired "Smiles and Handshakes." On the other side of the spectrum, It Was July adds an upbeat pop sensibility to "No Control" and "Revolution," but shows range in darker tracks, like "Terrible Sky" and "The Switch," and Noise Generator incorporate their industrial touch in "Shock Wave." It's not just dance music, it's real music borne from electronics, but raised on a rock sensibility that stays away from the average 4/4 thumping you hear in the club.

At this point, Neorev should be Diplo, but he's not, and maybe that's a good thing. He's still an artist who's not afraid to take chances, beholden to no one but himself, and that's perfect."

I like 'No Control', 'Smiles & Handshakes', 'The Switch' (could be longer) and the parts of 'Rollercoaster' where Noise Generator isn't singing
no idea, no idea

@ThePumisher

Hey, thanks for listening man! I'm happy you found tracks that you like. I appreciate ya taking the time to give it a spin.

It's funny the divide this album brings...
you got the Sway/Start Revolution I guess more hip hop type fans and then there's the No Control/Rollercoaster rockier fans.
Sway, No Control, Start The Revolution, and The Switch have gotten the biggest reactions.

My goal was to combine these elements of rock and hip hop with electronic music and bring something for everyone to the table.

Now I'm back at square one working on the next release.

If it weren't for your lack of modesty and the fact that this is your first (& only?) post, I might be inclined to make encouraging noises.  It's not bad but I won't be blowing smoke up the ass of anyone who tells me "At least one of you will love it.  Dig it."  That's for us to decide donchathink.
Yea though I walk through the valley and shadow of death

Is Industrial stuff or Skrillex somewhere in your  musical influences?
Personally I'm a sucker for melody, so Rollercoaster and The Switch were the ones that grabbed me.  The piano bit at the end of The Switch almost feels like it could be a break that would lead to the track crashing back in again. And like Pumisher, I wouldn't have minded a longer version. Feel like extending it?

I do like some industrial music, especially Front Line Assembly. Is Nine Inch Nails really industrial though? I also love Meat Beat Manifesto, Gesaffelstein, Atari Teenage Riot, and too much music to list. I guess I do listen to more "darker" music,  I'm a sucker for the aggressive stuff when it comes to writing. I like some of Skrillex's work here and there, but he ends up just sounding the same. I say I probably enjoy more of Excision/Destroid's stuff over Skrillex's. But yeah, the "brostep" scene did sneak its way in there. I started out as a drummer and played in various unsuccessful alternative rock bands when I was younger. So I guess my old rock days find a way to get in there.

Hmm, I never thought of that about the outro of "The Switch," but I am hearing what you guys are saying.
Perhaps I will go back and make an extended mix.  :)
But I wouldn't want to just go back and repeat the same part over again. Trying to think how to come back with something that plays off the main melody, but helps the momentum of the track and lifts it to a fitting end.

It Was July, aka Susan Wintruba from Chicago, is not only is she a great singer, she's a talented producer as well... http://itwasjuly.bandcamp.com

Funny enough, she found me on the official Nine Inch Nails forum and approached me about working on stuff. Our first sorta collaboration ended up being my remix of her track "Don't" and some additional production work for her. "The Switch" was a demo she had sitting around that she was just never really happy with. So she sent me the parts and I did my thing. It originally ended up just being a bonus track for one of her releases, but I went back and did some more mixing and remastering for my album. It ended up being one of the most liked tracks on the my album.

I got this new track that I'm working on that's quite a bit different. It's  been described as Rage Against The Machine meets The Prodigy. I've sent it off to a few of my vocalist friends... while my rapper friends seems a bit scared to approach it lol.  But I think it may be the jumping off point for the next release, we'll see. I do like to switch things up and explore other styles. Each album has had its own feel.

I was just looking for fans of the Chemical Brothers in hopes of finding a few people who might enjoy the song https://kleptonaut.bandcamp.com/track/chemtrail-blazers.  "At least one of you will love it" was meant as a joke, with the idea being that almost all but 1 person will not love it.  There's a unique thing I hear in some of the Chemical Brothers music that I think is great and I love it.  Maybe the song I made has a faint echo of that greatness  I hear in the Chemical Brothers, maybe it's my own imaginings.   This forum would seam to be a good place to ask the question, but it sounds like I asked the question poorly. 
I am grateful that this forum is generous enough to allow me to post my song without having to prove my allegiance to either the Chemical Brothers or this forum.  I don't know of many places where I can share my music with the possibility that someone might listen to it  and better yet, might like it.   

I was probably in a grumpy mood at the time...and I didn't think we'd ever see a second post from you. Reading it back,I'll admit it's not my most uplifting post here.
The tune you posted was kinda short  but I think that's a compliment  - I could have listened to more of it.

Well that technically wouldn't be a "new" track... but something also in the works.  ;)

So 2016 is here... how about a brand new Neorev​ release?

NEOREV - ACROSS THESE LANDS UNKNOWN]



1. Starlight  04:55
2. The Infinite Abyss  04:40
3. Beyond  05:15
4. Voices Calling Me  02:36
5. Across These Lands Unknown  05:23


"Across These Lands Unknown" is a special release that I have been working on for the last couple of years on the side. I consider this to be more of a concept album, a different mood and feel compared to the usual style aimed at dancefloors and subwoofers. You can say it's like a soundtrack. My own cinematic score to an imaginary movie inside my own head. It all began with the cover artwork, which I used as the main inspiration for its songs. I wanted to do something special for fans and start of the new year with something new and different.
