Title: Mooki!
Artist: Noggin vs Kaya
Album: Mooki!
Date: 1997

Happy Hardcore Rave Saturday track. This was an early brush with staying up til hours to make a track for no other reason than it has to be made NOW. DJ Kaya aka Brewer was over, and I have to say, this dude was the biggest champion of techno/electronic music in our little Texas town. So basically we had only each other to talk to / jam with (the majority of kids at school were still totally hung up on Smashing Pumpkins and it would take a little Crystal Method and a lot of Moonshine [not to mention likely doses of x] to start bringing them around).
We sat down at the pc with Buzz generating sounds and then sequencing these loops in Acid. I’ll never forget how much fun we had that night, and how absolutely crazy it felt to go from idea to 100% fully realised (and packaged!) cassette-single in just a few hours. We celebrated by going to Jack-In-The-Box, getting some milkshakes then heading to the movie theatre parking lot and doing donuts in Kaya’s souped-up Trans Am (the closest thing to a spaceship I’ve ever been in, seriously).
I think Kaya actually ending up parlaying this one happy-hardocre single into a pretty fruitful dj career in the late 90s. Props buddy! This one’s for you.

Request filling time again! Keep them coming!
I recall making this mix because I had just finished a ‘party’ hip-hop mix and wanted this one to be the companion ‘chill’ hip hop mix. I was still rocking the soundforge / cd architect for piecing these things together. This one involves some pretty smooth mixes, thanks for the props, fellas.
Includes hits from, but not limited to:
Pharcyde
Cypress Hill
Jurassic 5

Title: sn_9
Artist: Noggin
Album: Phase (remix project), Classic Trash
Date: 1999

This was a remix of the hidden track ‘sn_8’ off my first electronic album Phase. Mainly mixed in a lot hotter, a little less subtle, and with big industrial drums.
I need to thank everyone that contributed a remix for the Phase remix project, even if it never saw the light of day. Guess that means those tracks need to find their way onto this site too, then.

Title: Bottlecap Blues
Artist: CNCTR
Album: Classic Trash
Date: 1997

You could consider this an early experiment into just how far you could take a tracker / sampler. Somehow I got it into my head that I could record an entire track using nothing but the sounds of a ice tea bottle cap that I had. Got some sounds into cool edit, trimmed up and into Buzz, and this materialised pretty smoothly after that. Some of the samples are slapping the bottlecap, popping the lid in and out, dropping it, sliding it, and of course the bass drum which is not a bottlecap at all.
I chose this one to come next because it actually sounds good immediately following the last one.

Title: Agnus Dei
Artist: Orion
Album: Orion
Date: 1998

Here’s a bonus drop for anyone who requested Orion last week.
More work here with the revered and respected Gabriel Winter. If I remember correct, Gabe had this sample + some very loose melodies programmed, and then I got it and added drums + strings. Unfortunately, this song never was finished, and I think might have been the last track we collaborated on (feel free to correct me if you know better).
edit: player fixed.

Wow another insanely busy show. Thanks to all the callers….a for-the-most-part glitch free show but it’s hard to keep up with the phones ringing off like they do. I sure do appreciate it yall.
Today we stuck to the “Nashville: Bright Lights – Country Music” compilation…a readers digest type super comp. Well we veered off it for a couple numbers, but that comp was definitely the driving force of the show.
EDIT: Just realised I forgot to invert one of the audio channels, so this will sound like I’m swimming around between your ears. This will be fixed later today.
EDIT2: Fixed.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Sons of the Pioneers
Bill Anderson
Barbara Mandrell
Roy Clark
John Wesley Riles

Many many thanks to our regular co-host Jason for stopping in this morning and helping revolve the wax. I got lots of respect for Jason because he really knows his vinyl more than anybody else I know, and he holds out for quality. Something that will become apparent if you can actually follow our in-show ramblings.
Shout outs to the internet masses…thanks for digging the show even if it aint realtime.
This show is dedicated to Max Matthews who went on to a higher calling yesterday. That is hard to imagine because we wouldn’t know music and digital audio as we do now if it weren’t for a large portion of Max’s work. Respect.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Leonard Cohen

What can I say, I’m a sucker for a request.
This is from a pretty fruitful collaboration with one Andy, aka Gabriel Winter. We met up via Buzz, and decided to start working together on some pretty epic buzz tunes. Gabe’s insane melodic sense and my don’t-know-what-I’m-doing programming and I think we had a pretty good thing going.
This one was our first collaboration, and we went back and forth with this one pretty crazy. I can’t remember if Gabe was in Dallas or Colorado. Working with Gabriel Winter taught me a lot and humbled me in ways I needed to be humbled. He was an outstanding musician and one of the most positive people I had ever met.
Gabe if yer out there drop me a line!
