Another personal favorite here, Noggin takes it a bit deep and minimal after a decidedly idm intro.
First time I ever though, ‘dang samples are basically just like synths when treated correctly’ (an early misconception most electronic music producers might share), and first time I was like, damn, thats deep. I remember finishing this amidst a crappy summer school session at Blinn, and totally finding relief and escape and belonging in tracks like this.

All props to Ilya on this one.
This track has a bit of a weird journey…started out as one of Ilya’s first Buzz tracks, got a bit of Noggin treatment, back and forth between us (and this all in 97-98), then somehow it ended up in my sequencer view one night and got totally re-edited / remixed / rejiggled. Much mellower and a bit more focused than our first collaboration on the subject, and still trippy enough to keep me interested.
Dig Geonik’s Omega goin off.

“Wreckage” is a collection of files I found that to me sounded for the most part done, but somehow, ended up stranded on the side of the road, no where to go, and lacking the machinery needed to take them there. I really liked this one for being so damn robotic so, a simple, telling name seemed appropriate.
I tracked this all in Buzz, it’s mainly sample manipulation plus a bass drop synth. This is where a tracker shines.

More granular madness going on in here, though I can’t point exactly where…it’s all over.
Deep, pad + bass filled, 4 to the floor house….because that’s probably my favorite paradigm in electronic music.
I have this one labelled as 2003 but I seem to recall working on this in my first dorm room which would mean it’s actually from 2000-2001.
All made in Buzz. Charlie on the answering-machine/apollo-mission vocals.
Please enjoy.

Happy birthday to one of my true homeys, Thoams. This is a track he and I recorded, on a whim, one winter day in the basement of Beretta. He laid down the guitar line, I cut it up / pitched it / looped it, and this came out of it all. I felt like this was a good solid accomplishment, so much that I started to move away from the Trip Hop I had been obsessed with for a period of time.
This is a Jasmine guitar and Buzz.
ps. Apologies for the technical glitches…the site went blank screen on me for a couple hours and I just imagine it did the same to everyone.

Fade EP Wreckage

Title: Untitled (deefNEW)
Artist: Fade
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2001

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.
