Album: Fade EP
Date: 2003

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.

Title: Lost In
Artist: Fade
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2000
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.

Remix of one of the first collaborations I recorded with a vocalist. One night in Brogdon I just put the headphones on and Buzz’d away on these recordings into the morning hours. Actually, I’m pretty sure that turned into a few nights. Once I got the basic structure down, I really wanted to tweak and refine it.
The original will be coming shortly, featuring Robsi on vocals. We really had a promising thing going with this band, and I hope you enjoy the more brit-pop side of tracker techno.

This was intended to have vocals and be part of the Fade project that I was working on with Robsi. It was basically a britpop idea being filtered through my experience with Buzz. We never did get vocals for this one (understandably, i think), but there are other works out there with both of us and I am pretty proud of them.
This plus a few other tracks got compiled in 2003 into a compilation i called ‘Wreckage’, as it was the only survivors I could save from a dying buzz install.
