Title: Broken Fences
Artist: Trypset and Noggin
Album: Trypnog
Date: 2012

This is a track Trypset and I jammed out one February night, which I subsequently re-tracked, bounced to tape, yadda yadda yadda, named, and uploaded.
The name of this track comes from a couple inspirations:
– DJ Broken Fences is a name I always saw in San Marcos, and maybe the best DJ name I’ve ever heard (Trypset is a SM native)
– the recently mended broken fence in my back yard (yard party 2012 is on yall)
– sounds good, man
Alternate title is ‘The Ballad of Broken Fences’.
This is a mellow, trip hop, illbient, blunted style courtesy the mpc2000xl and some korg synth engine.
Recorded in Bryan, TX, Feb 2012.

Back in December, DJ Dag-Nab-It and I had the pleasure of being asked to provide the ambiance at a wedding here in town. The criteria was unique – keep it classy and make it feel like post-WWII.
Well we had a blast doing this one. Kind of a beautiful set up to the actual event as well – Dag-Nab-It scored some great records from Uncle “Smokey” Al Hanson (thanks Uncle Al), and I found the main record that was requested literally on the last dig I went on.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Herb Alpert
Henry Mancini
Ella Fitzgerald
Antonio Carlos Jobim
Various Pops groups
etc, etc…

More Brit-pop-avec-idm with Robsi. This one was pretty much done entirely in Reason, and I think we did most of it in one day.
Main thing about this is the vocoder…its like voices vocoded with delayed versions of themselves, guitar, drums, synths, the vocoder patches in this were like a cat’s cradle of patch cables (my favorite part about reason).
ps. and dig that we were doing the halftime drums before the brits were even doing it…well it was an accent back then whereas its like the norm nowadays.

Probably the first piece I did to create backing tracks for Karl’s “96” record. I loved those crunchy drums, and took it upon myself to see if I could turn his voice into a bit of an electronic instrument via the power of digital sampling in the mpc.
I’ll never forget the first moments I was working on that vocal, Elena came over with Murphy and he just started singing along with Karl’s endless tone.
MURPH!!!

Title: Live from Stafford 20 December 2008
Artist: Bananahat
Album: Live from Bryan, TX
Date: 2008

When all three members of Bananahat happened to convene in Bryan, Texas around the Christmas of 08, good things happened. SkullF*cker had a show booked at Stafford, and along with Bryce Clayton Eiman, Bananahat was around to pull the electro-noise-house vibes out of the winter downtown air.
Technically, this was Bananahat plus, as we had two at-large members join us on stage in masks and stuff. There’s laptops, live vocals, a feedbacker modded-sp303, akai mpc, korg er-1, tuning forks, contact mics, more feedback loops, and most importantly the magic of the season and weariness of the road.
The actual performance was about 30 minutes, but the recordings got started a short ways into it. Major props to Houston for hitting that record button…I don’t know how I could ever remember much less describe Bananahat at their finest hour.
Chappy Chanukah to all yall.

From Dwight to a Dude.
More material from the sessions with EMHU out in Palo Alto. I really like this track but never got the name for it. I can’t tell you where this extrapolation and modulation came from, but I dig and I hope you do. This is one for the headphone heads.

Original
Acoustic
This is one of the first collaborations with a bonafide vocalist and myself on programming. Robsi had the lyrics ready and wanted to hit that Kid A vibe that was kicking around pretty good at the time. Well we did our own take, and were both pretty happy with how it came out. A couple remixes followed.
We produced the majority of this in Buzz, but I believe vocals were tracked out in Vegas or Nuendo, and the acoustic remix was totally in whichever program that was. We took Buzz integration to the next level with this one, what with the guitars and vox and 808s etc.
Bonus for yall, acoustic remix is included.
