Blog Report: Setbacks

Hey there,

So for those who have been following the social media accounts under my name these past few months, you may have been hearing about attempts to put a band together along with the delays to N0_HER0ES and the release of Project Nightmare: Link to Future Past.

Well, we got some updates for you.

-First is the band. Setback is an understatement. It's now all the way back to the start. Lost two members of the band due to time commitments and such in the past week alone. So now this attempt has fallen face-flat and there's nothing I can do at this point in time. It's either try and figure this out or just recognize this ain't happening. Which sucks.

-Second is the mixtape. That has been hit with a few setbacks, specifically not having enough time to record as of late and potentially debating about HOW to release it. There was an idea to split it in 2 parts, but I think the pacing and emotion of it would be a stark contrast in parts. One part is cheery, the other is dark. It sounds like it could work but does it work? I'll be spending the next week or so listening to a variety of tracklists on my iPod to see what fits and if there's a danger of overload.

At this rate, the window for release is between September and December. So really, this is wide open right now. Very wide open. Depends on recording, the tracklist, and the decisions to be made.

-Third is Link to Future Past. For something rushed (just look at the album art), it wasn't half bad. I kinda left it open for a follow up, so who knows, maybe it'll happen.

More updates to come on the social media links. Stay tuned.

Blog Report: The Tell-All

Hey everyone,

Been a few months since I last spoke, but it's been a crazy elevator for awhile now, that has finally stabilized itself and gets ever so close to it's destination.

So let's start with the big one: N0_HER0ES. The mixtape is missing one song (which I'm working on right now) and I do have some plans for it. The lyrics are done. So I guess the next two months are recording this bad boy and finalizing some things here and there. Specifically guests and what the strategy for making this all stick will be.

I know that, for the past two years, this project has been my life, and while it has taken forever to realize, and even went through a mid-stream realignment...I'm proud of it. And I like how this has been played close to the chest and nothing has been spilled about it so far, keeping a sense of mystery that is missing in today's internet-infused world.

Project Nightmare Evolution : How It All Came Together (And Nearly Fell Apart)



-Origins-


After the launch of Project Nightmare 36(5) last year, there was a lull. The year-long production cycle of 36(5) was over, and it was more of a relief for me, because the project didn't wind up being a manic rush to the finish line like the majority of the series has been.

I was trying to find the next twist in the series. What's going to change this series for the better? What stylistic change will be the best and not the one that compromises it?

While I pondered it, mired in the still-ongoing production of N0_HER0ES and various remixes and reinventions (including a spell as DEF 85), I allowed influences to enter my circle and began to ponder, what is the one thing I haven't done?

What's so new about New Years?

Hey hey!

So it's 2014. And obviously, it's a new year, happy new year.

Now that's out of the way. Let's get to the down and dirty.

2014 is going to be a year of changes. Some of them well over-due, others a bit harder.

To start, the production of N0_HER0ES is mostly coming to a head as of next week. Tracking all the solo songs next week and trying to squeeze in the 2 guest verses as well. The beats have been totally finalized, some songs have been cut in length and things have been added to it. A couple of road tests (specifically, collaborator feedback) and some songs were good but needed to get better. So the delays have helped...somewhat.

Also, a note about the song "The Story"...I'm scouting for someone to take over the role of guest vocalist for that song (original choice dropped out last month). Obviously I'm willing to sacrifice a timely release in exchange for the songs being presented as they should be. Could lead to some interesting possibilities.

On that note....there's a few other things at hand. One of them being...Project Nightmare.



By now, you may have already seen or heard the new installment, Evolution. If you have, I thank you for it. I had a lot of fun staying up till 4AM last night finishing that for your pleasure!

Ahem. Exhaustion notwithstanding, I think there's a good chance that Nightmare 7 (yes, I've already thought about it)...will probably be a ways off. However, a follow-up to Evolution, (R)Evolution is in the works,and this one...ooh boy it's a doozy.

Remixes. By friends. This could be bad or really good.

Ok, the negative post wasn't needed. But yeah, that's one of the many changes bound to happen, along with a few others I can't say right now...or maybe I can.

OK, so this entire "start a band for shows" thing didn't work. At all. I'm very frustrated at it.

So I need a solution. Either this goes all-supergroup and becomes low commitment with a finite number of shows planned for 2014 with the band (hint: count on one hand) or we keep on grinding trying to find a solution, or just say screw this and go back to the PA and myself bullcrap everyone else does.

Sorry, I'm trying to craft my own lane here. Don't mind me...

Ahem. More negative postings.

What I really meant to say was that if it happens, odds are it won't be all that often.

OK, that's all I have for now. Happy New Year, we out.

Blog Report: "Just Like the Diamond Cutter, You Never Saw It Coming!"

Howdy everyone,

So this will be a nice long and elaborate blog post. Grab a chair and sit down.

First off, there's been another delay for N0_HER0ES that has changed what was supposed to be an early 2014 release into something that may take a month or more to come out. This one is no small delay, rather it's huge and could take awhile to get past.

One of the songs set for the mixtape, may have to be rewritten or replaced entirely, due to the unexpected and unforeseen news that the guest for that song dropped out of the project. As such, I won't go into details, because I still respect the art of privacy (it's not something bad, rather it was a personal decision) and thus, it's a bitter pill to swallow, mainly due to the importance of how the song would affect the mixtape and the narrative planned for the middle chapters, and also puts a yoke around my neck for getting this project done timely.

Also, attempts to start a band have failed spectacularly. Either the people I want to work with are on the other end of MA, work 2 jobs and have no time, are perpetually unavailable, or some other reason I can't think of at the moment.

So the options left now are to keep on trying (the obvious one), or talk to another band and ask if they would consider playing the role of backing band for one night (i.e. The Roots), or swallow my pride, and stick to PA beats (the nuclear option). I'm not looking to compromise my intentions, my goals, just for a quick minute, rather, I'm trying to get the right setting to let these songs shine like they should.

In regards to the collaboration, well, I have a plethora of options, one of them is rewriting the song's 3rd verse, another is recruiting someone else to do the part, and either releasing it on the mixtape or as a remix later down the line. Scrapping it is not an option. Like I said before, no compromising.

This is a tough one. If nothing works, who knows, open it up to the public and find someone that way, I dunno. Like I've believed all my life...it's always the stuff you don't see coming that hurts the most. Sigh.

In other news, next week, we launch "Please Hold: 2014 Sampler" on bandcamp and noisetrade. Be on the lookout.

PN Evolution - coming 1.1.14



See you all later.

Blog Report: N0_HER0ES, Starting a Band Again, and What Does the Future Hold



Two-for-one this week.

So with N0_HER0ES now having a tracklist and a more solid outlook going forward, time to look back at how exactly this project came to be.

Blog Report: Everything Must Coincide

Hello and welcome!

I am MC Larny, and this is the Blog Report. Normally this is posted at the start of the week, but not this time.

For all intents and purposes, this is a special edition, so read up and grab a chair.

N0_HER0ES: Well, I've been telling myself I'm going to record this week, and the next, and the next. But I haven't, which is weird, because this has been the only thing going on in my mind and yet, something always pops up.

I want to get this done, and move on to the EP (which will have some sort of preview Nov. 1st) and then onto album #4.

It's never easy, somedays it's just a wake up and a "do it now" mindstate. But that's why they play the game or something like that.

I'm looking at a few options here and there in terms of distribution. Either throwing it onto the compost heap of mixtapes and hoping to get noticed, or staying with my guns and putting it on Bandcamp (like I usually do)...and of course, the possible CD release too.

And at this point I would like to unveil the tracklisting for N0_HER0ES.



And now on to some other things:

OCTOBER SURPRISE: Halloween. Be ready.

EP #2: It's ready to go. Recording alongside the mixtape.

So the story behind it is this. It's a continuation of Confessions After Dark, and it's examining the dreams of someone after they experience a breakup, and how somewhere, deep in their memories, the person they love is still there, and this is the last shot to find them.

Again, the first leak will be on 11/1 via First of the Month. So do stay tuned.

PROJECT NIGHTMARE 6: MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT COMING IN NOVEMBER.

Other projects: Stay tuned (as always)
