As for the stems there is much information about this release and how the stems and samples are beiong handled are a bit different with this one. The information is scattered across several blog posts and perhaps a tl;dr version here would serve well...

Notes on Samples & Something New:

As with all our releases stems and samples will be provided. However, when this work came to us it was already in the final stages of composition. The majority of what was there, being already re-sampled down to one file, left us asking; how can we release this work, but at the same time stay in line with our ethos? The answer came in a collection of field recordings taken by Aaron Smith while at a music and art festival called Sirius Rising in July of this year. Aaron and I are in the process of processing various bits of these recordings into a set of samples that include: glitch effects, vocal effects, percussion type one shots, and various / in-sundry manipulated sounds. We will also be collecting the percussion from our previous three releases, the Static Bounce remix EP, and housing them in a folder of their own for easy access.

Why are we doing this?

We feel, given the ambient nature of this work, it is begging to be destroyed and it’s potential for mutation is ripe. At present we have no intention of shutting down submissions for mutations of previous releases. We would, however, like to strongly encourage the listener to download the release, and use the provided samples, to give us your own unique take on Yggdrasil.
Even the tl;dr is wordy but that, in tandem with the OP in this thread, is it in a nutshell.

Here are the links to the sample packs associated with Yggdrasil:

Also, as promised earlier, here is the link to a .zip of all the percussion samples from all our previous releases:

Do you have to use these?

Hope that brings a bit of clarity to what it is we are doing with this release. Basically the entire EP is one big awesome resampled and modulated ambient beast that is yours to remix in any way you can think of.

Best of luck to anyone and if there are more questions, please, fire away.

Re: AEP004: Ben Steed - Yggdrasil EP / Remix Contest Sub's Open

I didn't intend to submit a remix when I downloaded the stems, but they're just too much fun to play with! After about 10 minutes mucking around with the samples I had a skeleton of a song. It just seemed rude not to submit it when it was done...

I'm loving this project so far, and we're only 4 releases deep

^As I said in a comment somewhere...

It's something you can't really pin down with words and that's what makes it so special.

You'll do us a remix then JvS?

Edit: Sorry...

By JvS I mean Wetty.

powerful stuff, really. and i'm definitely doing a remix. the ep and the provided sample pack are so beautifully organic. it makes the whole process of reworking a song rather playful
