I have just uploaded my entry for the current contest, any comments and votes welcomed :O)
Hi one and all, just uploaded a chill-out jazz track I wrote in 2004. I hope you all enjoy.
It's been a while since I've anything new from Welsh artist Onager, so it was nice to see him sneaking this track onto my review list. An MP3 Unsigned artist, Onager writes electronica in general and soundtracks in particular, and he's usually well worth a listen. With Dagonet (A Radiant Mourning) he's obviously overdosed on film epics (he mentions the excellent 300 and King Arthur in
Onager isn't just an MP3 Unsigned artist, he is someone who, unfailingly and unprompted listens to and comments on every track that I release. Now that, in my world, says volumes about a character. Here we are surrounded by gazillions of wannabees who wouldn't cross the road to piss on you if you were on fire, and every once in a while you come across the very, very few people who real
Yet another collaboration featuring the enigmatic singer Essence, this time with a vocal borrowed from the Viral Essences collaboration, aided by an old MP3 Unsigned face Contayjen - who you may remember as Virus. Confused?? Fuck yeah. Still, seeing as that counts as normal anyway, I'll get on. I first came across this vocalist in yet another collaboration - this time with
I've come across Colwyn Bay's Onager a couple of times before through MP3 Unsigned and liked what they did although nothing - as yet - as set me on fire. Having said that I did give them a Recommended for Dark Glass (July 2005) for its edgy electronic feel and it's Numanesque musical references - although missing the essential ingredient, the vocal to go with it. There is an added ince
The intro to Glyn's track is full of intrigue and leads you down into the bowels of the track by the use of piano and violin.Effective percussion carry the track onwards and the build is added to by bassline and brass.The music arrangement here is first class and lays the foundation of the ambience Glyn wishes to create.Abeey's vocals in this section are fine for me and are clear and distinct.Inte
Melody - it kind of has the same melody all the way through, but
changes a tad around the 2/3rds point for a moment. I had trouble

it's clear that the piano is the only melodic element, next to the

Paredafoe, Glynn, Onager.
It’s hard to keep track of who’s who, I need to keep track. J
Paredafoe is another very valuable member of mp3unsigned.
Always participating in the forums, reviewing and commenting on tracks, and always there with the helping hand. His alter ego, Glynn, is not though. (Only kidding) lol.
Coming from the unofficial capital of Wales, Colwyn Bay!!!!.- Onager (or wild a
The intro to this track is imense and immediatly grabs your attention. Lots off differnt sounds going on which all work very well together. The opening bass sound comes in with an almighty booom and continues booming, which sounds superb, really gives the track alot of depth. The drums come in next and fit very well with the dark atmosphere that has been created.
The song then sludges (in a good
Whenever I am writing reviews I find it's always a good thing to go back through past reviews wherever I can. One, because I don't want to make a complete dick of myself (well, not all the time anyway) and two because I find I can get a better feel for what the artist is up to by taking a longer view of their work. So far, I have reviewed two other Onager tracks (which I must admit sur
Nice effects at the start of the track build up anticipation before bringing in a really good sounding melody. The track from here seems to progress quite slowly, keeping that same melody and underlying it with other darker synths that work well too. Although the melody is excellent, and everything fits together nicely underneath it, there is a distinct lack of any major change throughout the whol
Sorry for the delay, lets see if I can make up for it?
This is another track which I have left comments on before reviewing.
Basically Ongar as left comments on all the work I have put up on this site

I mean pretty much always gave good honest comme
Onager: catapult: medieval artillery used during sieges; a heavy war engine for hurling large stones and other missiles. Asiatic wild ass. btw, make sure you read that properly. That's 'wild ass' not 'wise ass'. Fortunately, this Onager is none of those things (well maybe a BIT of wise ass :D ). He's an MP3 Unsigned artist from Colwyn Bay in Wales who I have com
The last track - but by no means least - from MP3 Unsigned this month is yet another new artist to me. Onager hail from Colwyn Bay in Wales and this makes the third Welsh band on MP3 Unsigned to my knowledge and that is no bad thing. Fact is, even if you didn't realise, that the Welsh people have done a lot for UK music and IMHO have definitely thrown up some of the best rock musicians
