Details I found watching Mike's livestreams

Recommended Posts

Since Mike is been doing these livestreams I noticed a few things in his computer that give us some info about past and unreleased stuff but also some potential new things and I thought to share them with you, just in case.
I know, some are vague, some are just for speculation, but there's something interesting too, I'll write everything just to be sure.

 

UPDATE: All the things related to the CoronaJams will be in their respective sections in Linkinpedia, this thread will be exclusively dedicated to the other stuff we don't know nothing about!


FAVORITES
Source: March 26, 2020 livestream / Min: 00:00 / Screenshot

Matt and Dan files
In the first second of the stream you can see, in Mike's favorites, the folders "Matt Files" and "Mayo Files" (with the Dropbox icon).
These could be related to the live shows or something more.

Matt was also in the studio recently, I think it would be nice to hear stuff from them with Mike.

DESKTOP FILES

 

New Music Working Files

MS OP-1 SONGS
We already knew (and he confirmed that more than once) that he's working to some other songs, but it was nice to see an actual "new music" folder.

He used the OP-1 synth a lot during these livestreams but I think there's other stuff that we don't know in there.

 

Orchestra

We know that Mike recorded in Detroit with the Royal House Recording in 2018 and that wasn't for Clockwatch, so there could be files from that session or something else.

MLN Vox wav

Could this be some vocal recordings for a track called "MLN"?

Make your bets about the actual title.

For JAalon

During the A Thousand Suns style session Mike talked with Jason Aalon Butler, singer of Fever 333, hinting at some collaboration.

I guess that's the case since Jason actually confirmed it during his livestream.
I hope it's not just writing/production and we'll get some new vocals by Mike too.

OPEN DOOR Vocals

Yeah, we all know about this one, It could be his vocal recordings or the fan vocals.

MS for BK She Killed Me
Little research here.
There's a duo called Brevin Kim (BK?) who's followed by Mike.
They also commented one of his latest Instagram post and Dave answered too, you can see this here.
On March 31 they posted a video of a new track and at the end of the description there's written *she killed me?* .
Mike recently said that he worked with a lot of artists and that he prefers young and emergent artists, so this could be an enormous coincidence or maybe not.
What do you think?

 

BONUS: there were two WeTransfer folders I noticed in some of the next livestreams that later disappeared.
I didn't add them because there wasn't written anything interesting but let me just think that it was some recordings sent by the other guys of the band.

 

 

 

Let Em In (vocals).zip
The folders "OPEN DOOR Vocals", "For JAalon" and "MS for BK She Killed Me" disappeared, but here's a new .zip file containing vocals for a track called "Let Em In".

It could be a solo song or a collaboration of course, but this is the first time I noticed it, we'll see.

 

 

 

Bear vla Aaron
On May 11 livestream Mike worked to a blackbear song called I'm Still Fucking Here, saying "My guys Aaron and Matt".

He was referring to Aaron Harmon, the producer who also worked on About You and What The Words Meant.

A clip of I'm Still Fucking Here was posted by blackbear on Instagram, he also tagged Mike saying that we wanted to send him the track.

But this folder was on Mike desktop's days before that, so I guess Mike is producing at least two blackbear songs?


 

 

Grimy Sloppy about 90bpm-tape.wav

Dan Mayo free speech #1 multitrack

Mayo Free Speech MS 1.wav

Mayo Free Speech MS 1.wav.asd

Mayo Channeling D BigKit 122bpm.wav

Mayo Channeling A vinyl crackles 122bpm.wav

 

The "Grimy Sloppy" I guess it's a tape loop he recorded.
 

For May 18 and May 21 livestreams Mike used some drum recordings by Dan Mayo, done when he was in Los Angeles last year.

In the May 20 screenshot you can also see a WeTransfer .zip file but I can't read the name because it's covered by Dan's folder.
On May 21 two more recordings with Dan appeared, with Mike actually using "Mayo Channeling A vinyl crackles 122bpm.wav" for the jam of that day.

But here comes the best thing.
In the May 22 screenshot you can clearly see the folders at the bottom.
Yeah, Mike REALLY created two folders named "YES I KNOW" and "YOU CAN SEE MY FOLDERS" LMAO 🤣
There's a third one under those, I guess it's the "continuation", but sadly it's covered by the donations banner.

UPDATE: Donations banner is gone and I can finally reveal the full "message" by Mike:
 

YES I KNOW
YOU CAN SEE MY FOLDERS
STOP PEEKING

 

🤣

 

 

Talking To Myself Drum Stems

Why he has a folder with drums from Talking To Myself on his desktop?
Working on a remix? Learning drum parts? Ideas for live shows?

  • Source 9: 7.24.20-Making a song with ONLY ONE SOUND (July 24, 2020) / 01:48:02 - 02:07:55


ELEPHANT/GOLD/GOLD ELEPHANT

On Mike's desktop there's a folder called Elephant Drum Raw Stereo.

It was edited the last time on the 4th of July. That was Saturday, so he wasn't streaming.


In the July 24 stream, we can see on the left a few drum racks:
Battle Symphony Rack

Dark Electro

LP Drum Rack 1
Mew Break
MS Gold Drum Rack
MS Gold Elephant 1
MS NI Gold Kik Snares

Rock Industrial

 

Interesting to see that there's a drum rack both for "Gold" and "Gold Elephant".
These could be just random names for the drum racks, or demos titles.

The main "Elephant Drum Raw Stereo" folder is still on his desktop, so whatever this is it's something he's working on recently.


There's another folder (maybe a file) under that, I can read "Drum Break" but he didn't show it in its entirety, it could be related to Elephant or not.

On the next stream I was able to see the folder and it says "SAMPLED-Drum Break Dispensary".

FOR S

A folder called "FOR S" is on Mike's desktop. Let's start to speculate about who "S" could be.

Tracks For Dom 7/30

Ok, who's Dom? 😎

 

ABLETON PROJECTS

 

Merlyn Vox Project (modified in March 19, 2020)
This is the first 2020 project, before all the ones from the recent livestreams, I guess that's a (working) title for a new track?

 

High Definition Project

Parzival Project

Aurora Project

Stay Up For Vocals Edits Projects

 

Parzival, Aurora and Stay Up are probably some other working titles, the first two worked on August 2018.
Stay Up was last modified on April 2015 and it seems it had some vocals too!

Air Force One Project

Two Dee Dee Project

Jelly Project

Loops Play Project

Cool Arp Project

Breakeberter 85 bpm Project (Not sure about this, I can't actually read this one)

Sandile Project
Greninja Battle Project


All of these are dated January 2015.
We all know Air Force One, since it was released on the LPU 16 and it's labeled as a 2015 Demo, I guess that's a confirmation.
No idea about the other titles.
 

 

 

Haunt You - Six Coolde (Not sure about the last word)
IN ON THE TAKE


I don't know what these could be.

COVERS (modified on March 26, 2013)

This could be about artworks more than covers of other songs, who knows.


AVICII 1 Laptop Machine

AVICII 1 Project
AVICII 2 Project


Three Avicii projects dated January 2013.

We talked about Wake Me Up here in the forum days ago and I still don't know if Mike actually did something for it, buthe did something with Avicii for sure.

 

Bim Bim Bom Project (At least it's what I can read)
Carbine Project


Othere two projects from January 2015.

 

Blinky Larabee MS Project (modified in November 7, 2013)
Blinky is the working title of Guilty All The Same, so we have now a little indication of a period when they worked on it.

 

Burberry Project (modified in May 8, 2013)

We know the debate about this track since it was released on the LPU 16 mislabed as a 2015 demo and it was already released via Stagelight in 2012.
At least now we know that Mike opened the folder in 2013 too 😂

 

Easy Beats Project
flees Project
Humming Project


Three more unknown projects from 2013.

 

 


Drive Me Mad Remix 3
Drive Me Mad Remix 2
Drive Me Mad Remix

 

Mike rivisited old CoronaJams and we can see that he updated a few names, giving us some working titles (and potential final titles) for these tracks, but also three projects about a "Drive Me Mad" remix.
In Mike's Spotify playlist there's a track called I Drive Me Mad by renforshort, a Canadian artist, Mike also follows her on Instagram.
I guess we can expect something about this.

 

  • Source 4: 7.24.20-Making a song with ONLY ONE SOUND (July 24, 2020) / Screenshot

 

WARRIORS DRUM Shinkansen
We know that Shinkansen was originally a Living Things beat that Mike re-used for World's On Fire.
Could be Warriors a new track?

 

  • Source 5: 7.27.20 - What should we make today? (July 27, 2020) / Screenshot


VIOLENT ENOUGH

Before the July 27 stream Mike was working in Ableton on a project called "Violent Enough".

 

AL

Source: 8.17 Making a guitar thing ( August 17, 2020) / Screenshot #1 - Screenshot #2

 

Found a potential new song, from two Ableton files, AL 1 Project.als and AL MS Sketch 1 acapella.mp3, dated August 14 and 15.

 

DD aaron.mp3

Source: 9.9 Freestyle beatmaking session (September 9, 2020) / Screenshot

 

New MP3 file on Mike's desktop!
"Aaron" could be Aaron Harmon, so this could be another blackbear related track, even if we don't know anything new about "Bear vla Aaron" and "I'm Still Fucking Here".

I don't think Mike just misspelled "Aalon" as Jason Aalon Butler (another collab we still don't know anything else), so... any guesses?


PRO TOOLS FILES


El Little Idiot 110bpm.ptx

From his Pro Tools files here's a potentially working title for a new song modified on June 7, 2020 at 12:45 PM, so it's a new project.


ITE DRUM SUM.wav
SFN Drum Kit Stem.wav

Heavy Drum Kit Stem.wav
NCSM Drum Kit Stem.wav


You can also see .wav files of drum stems for In The End, Sorry For Now, Heavy and Nobody Can Save Me added into a new folder on June 7.

 

 

 

KNOWN SAMPLES
It was funny to notice how some of Mike's folders are the same ones we got from the leak of the past summer.
I was like "Oh, I shouldn't have this stuff" 😂
When he selected his sounds I've noticed folders like: ALBUM4SNDS, ARCHBSHOP (he actually used the Sound 1 and 7 for the ATS style demo), ATARI, Dist MS 20 Key, GB Sounds, KeroDrums, LOOSESAMPLES, RYGAR, Xero Current, also sounds like Rick Rubin's 808, NRG Phone and BJORKICK.



ENJOY THE SILENCE REMIX
On April 10, Mike did another quick stream. This is the original link, but he deleted it and I think a lot of you guys could have missed it, so I'm adding this one too.
Someone in the chat asked who played the drums for the Enjoy The Silence remix, and he said: "They are VST drums, synth drums. I made them. I played them with the keyboard".
I always thought that it was Rob who played the drums, so now what?

Obviously epic stuff. We will see if anything from it turns out to be important or not. Anyway, great to keep an eye on it

I just checked the CD single and Rob is indeed credited for drums. Transcribed the credits here:

http://linkinpedia.com/index.php?title=Enjoy_The_Silence_(Reinterpreted)#Personnel

 

My best guess is Mike doesn't remember Rob recording specifically for the remix because he used some sounds that were previously recorded by Rob at another time, maybe some leftover from the Meteora sessions.

This topic should be password protected just in case Mike is lurking (and we all know he is) Delete it while you can, cause we might not get any of this stuff on future streams haha

 

EPIC SHIT, good job dude!

That makes sense, it could be something similar to what happened with Place To Start!

I mean between the stems that leaked and the rips from Mike's old equipment, we got the equivalent of a whole lot of unauthorized sample packs lol. I'm with you, though. I would pay for an officially released one.

Let Em In (vocals).zip
Source: Making a song out of Money Mark's IG post (April 16, 2020) / Min: 31:28 / Screenshot

The folders "OPEN DOOR Vocals", "For JAalon" and "MS for BK She Killed Me" disappeared, but here's a new .zip file containing vocals for a track called "Let Em In".

It could be a solo song or a collaboration of course, but this is the first time I noticed it, we'll see.


Update!
New track title: "Let Em In".

wasn’t that song found on that IBM site? ( idk the real name of it )


If I remember correctly after "fine" (that, as we know, was actually released) the last title that appeared on BMI was "My Horizon"!

You're right, like I said in the thread he actually used a pair of samples from the A Thousand Suns sessions that we got from the MPC's stuff, that was funny to see 😂

 

Today he talked about Rick Rubin's sounds from his 808, and yeah, about those too... 👀😂

Same, I didn't even realized how big that leak was until now.

Like, today he was talking about the Game Boy samples he made, I checked and I have exactly the same sounds 😂

Ha. It's no secret the MPC stuff that leaked was like, from his main sample database. He took the exact ATS samples from that to do the ATS style demo, etc. Pretty cool.

 

But only Mike can combine them into a masterpiece, lmao. They are almost useless to us.

Rick Rubin's 808 and Game Boy sounds too!

We can only hope for a sample pack of his talent to leak too 😂

Bear vla Aaron

Not sure about this because I can't read it properly but that's what it seems to me. 
Maybe it's "Beat via Aaron"?
There's a songwriter called Aaron Bear but who knows?

Maybe something with blackbear?

 


3.22 Babble Bobble
3.27 King Paprika
3.21 KarmaKon
4.27 Booty Down
(well, we all know that one 😂)
3.31.20 CoronaJam structure Hollow Kingdom
Corona Jam 4.6 Oystershells
4.5 Quick ConoaJam 3 Drone Strike
90s hip hop The Brooklyn Way
Corona Jam 4.15 OSIRIS
CoronaJam 80s 4.9.20 Seventeen Candles
Freestyle Jam 4.8.20 Tin Man
Corona Jam 4.12.20 v2 Corn Meal


Mike rivisited old Corona Jams and we can see that he updated a few names, giving us some working titles (and potential final titles) for these tracks.

 

BONUS: No need to add a section or a screenshot for this because you can see it almost during the entire stream but April 30 jam was called 4.30 dust code.

 

Drive Me Mad Remix 3
Drive Me Mad Remix 2
Drive Me Mad Remix

 

There were also three projects about a "Drive Me Mad" remix.
In Mike's Spotify playlist there's a track called I Drive Me Mad by renforshort, a Canadian artist, Mike also follows her on Instagram.
I guess we can expect something about this.

 

New update!
Potential collaboration, new remix and working titles for Corona Jams.

Unless he records some vocals and turn them into full songs, then I can accept normal titles 😁

Little suggestion, I know this stuff (especially streams over 1,5hrs) takes a lot of space BUT you need to (yes you @PeppePark) to dl all the streams, save all the screenshots for future  - just in case they're gone. Also if you're into this far deeper than most of us (I mean, I have so little time to work on lpcatalog, not to mention other stuff...I barely come back to any of the streams, I wish I had more time though) maybe you could gather all the answers and make a topic with Q&A: Corona Jams Sessions?

I can save screenshots for sure,  but I don't have enough space to archive the streams, so this needs to be done by someone else.
Imgur links are in the thread, but if someone from the staff need them just let me know!

About the Q&A topics... English is not my native language, so there's the chance I won't be able to understand everything, especially if something needs to be the exact quote, but I could do something about it, we'll see!
