Great haunting chilled sound you have! Very original, sweet vocals.
I really Love this track!!! Very original & the vocal is so gorgeous in tone...pure it cuts right through but its velvety too! I love the way the music supports the melody its so hooky in a non hook sort of way! I'm Nominating it

Thanks for the comments on my Vocals Guys n Ladies :-):-):-)
nice mellow track its just what i need in a sunday morning..gets my rate.
Relaxing!!! Reggaeshly relaxing!!! Thumbs up!!
oh oh d/ld i LOVE this, especially the intro and the piano i love her voice so much! beautiful.
I have to say when the piano came in, it caught my attention in a very positive way! Vocals are great with those effects and the whole feel of the track just works a treat. Liked it alot. Kevin Mooney.
get a groovy loungy feelin' with this one, i fancy the ambient sounds you added in the background, the vocals fit in perfect, love the baseline that suddenly kicks in, very atmospheric overall, gets my rate ;)
Nice solid drum perc intro with some teasing hats, Seems alittle long of an intro tho before the vocals come in, but when the bass and piano come in its all rather funky azz! some nice use of fx on the vocals, good solid structure after the middle 8. rated
Great track, love the intro, agree with tom piano a little loud, vocals compliment the music perfect on this, great backing vocals also. Rated and a nom. X Destri
Nice Job! I love it when the piano and bass comes in with the main vocals! leads to a good groove I wasn't expecting and Essence's vocals really go with the track! the overall production is great! I feel like it needs to be on the opening to TV prog... like it! rated!! Jennifer xx
I like this vinyl like beat man ! The vocals seem a bit detached to the rest of the track at times i.m.o. vibe is good ! (maybe you should use this instrumental for another purpose, cause it's good !)
The intro sounds very tribal. The Hihat pattern is a good idea. The piano is too loud in the mix I think. Interesting synth pads. Were the vocals like that on the original version? Sort of indian atmosphere. Good work.
Very nice and chilled, really compliments Essence's vocals. Real groovy vibe to it. Great stuff and I know how difficult it can be to work around someones vocals so thumbs up for this!
mm I like the "groove" of this, excellent production, love the vocals. It's got real atmosphere this, all the little effects and electronic interjections work really well. I think this is fab! Great track!!!
Another original tune from you, full of good surprises and with an addictive note. There's a subtle tension to hear, which makes me holding my breath, and makes me wondering from the very start till the end where this will be heading next. Love it! A tune that is very outstanding through the mood and athmosphere it's spreading, but hard to describe. Partly floating through the space, mysterious, a touch of melancholy and eastern vibe, longing and desire as well. A tune that carries me away to a place I've never been before. Excellent vocal work, effects, drums and percussion as well. Bravo, Glyn!
OoooOoooou...! If this was playing while I was wandering about the music store, I would buy the CD on impulse. There's a wonderful vibe in it.
Ohhh send me the file for my collection of Embers remixes please....it is getting rather large now :-) :-):-)Thankyou!!
Ohhhh and with this Remix you are truely spoiling us ;-P lol ...Nice One !!! Another wicked and unique take of "Embers" - ViralEssence on mp3unsigned :-) Good work....nice groove !! And of course your melodies compliment my vocals nicely ...Rated !! :-)Thanks alot for remixing .....Peace N Love x

Really cool beat to this...totally differnt feel. Jazzy and bluesy laid back and funky.
Love the opening sequence, bass n beat is nice and deep.The piano is very effective here and there too.Nice one Glyn...rated
this is killler! the beat is awesome. i really like the cymbal that finishes the drum loop. cant really think of much more to say. some cool sounds coming in and out. i had a go at this remix awhile back too. i used much fewer of the lyrics, you made this sound great. i really like the guitar/piano chord part. it was such a cool sound i was hoping for more of it. it gave the track a moby feel. overall this is killer. id nom but im out. so i rate will have to do
Cool vibe - nice track! -rated- Carol Sue :)

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
definine where the melody was coming from, but as the song went on,
it's clear that the piano is the only melodic element, next to the
vocals here and there, it's hard to carry a melody this way with one
instrument, and you did a great job, didn't get boring or du

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.

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
