Universal Energy Album Incl. New K-Complex Collab “Deep Inside” Available NOW!

**Massive Update**  Kevin Energy and Jasmine Knight’s Kickstarter funded album “Universal Energy” is finally here, including a brand spanking new lockdown collaboration between myself and Kevin! 

Featuring classic sounds with a style that we developed over many years of working together “Deep Inside” takes you on a journey through a spacey acid infused Hardcore dreamscape into rolling Freeform madness completed by Jasmine’s exquisite vocal talents.  We’re super proud of this track which we think encompasses some of the best elements of our past works with super-tight new skool production values.

There’s a limited number of 3 x CD albums left plus so grab yourself a copy at Kevin Energy’s website before they’re gone forever!  You’ll also find the entire Nu Energy Recordings catalogue remastered there too along with some exclusive Merchandise too!

K-Complex Freeform Template For Ableton Live


I’ve created a new template for Ableton Live 8 users! Explore Freeform production in Live – the project uses both Live’s Clip view & Arrange View to ensure that you’ll get how to put tracks together for live performance use too! All sounds, samples and instruments are included in the download the project makes extensive use of Live’s Simpler instrument to provide most of the key melodic elements as playable instruments. The track also features beautiful vocal samples taken from DMS Acapellas Vol 3.

The project requires no 3rd party plugins, so all that you need to load up, edit and explore this track is Live Standard 8.4.2 or higher (also compatible with Ableton Live 9).
