CES 2013 is finally here guys! This is one of the few tech expos where OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) can show off their latest and greatest creations. Last year, at CES 2012, Sony showcased the Xperia S and Xperia Ion, Lenovo touted a windows phone they were working on, the Samsung Galaxy Note was unveiled, Corning showed off the strength of Gorilla Glass 2, Qualcomm showcased their lightning fast S4 chip (which is now in the HTC Droid DNA), Nvidia touted the processing power of their Tegra 3 processor, a number of manufacturers showed off Ultrabooks, and Samsung released Super OLED televisions. Almost all of those devices had revolutionary technological advancements that are now features we take for granted. No doubt the devices this year will be bigger, faster, and stronger than ever before.
EDM stands for Electronic Dance Music. When a song doesn’t fit into a certain category, it’s called EDM. Varien is has mainly focused on dub step, but he’s made morphine, which was also in Monstercat 011, and it is one of the most interesting songs I’ve heard in a while. Varien loves “layering” his tracks, so there are very subtle additions to the song that make it sound fuller and richer. In the beginning, he uses sound loops of aggressive strings and orchestras to make the song sound more intense. I usually don’t like Varien’s works because he focuses more on heavy metal and dub step, but this one really caught my ear because he slowed it down to 100 bpm but kept the dubstep and metal influences intact; not an easy thing to do. If you like it, you can get it on iTunes or Monstercat’s own site. If you want to see how he made the song, he’s given a full rundown.
