Desireless
Falco

Title: We All Come Off (full mix)
Artist: Noggin
Album: We All Come Off
Date: 2002

It’s not too early in the week to party, right?
This one grew out of proposition to ‘dj’, indirectly, again, a Halloween party happening in Waco. I prepared the mix beforehand, then Jared and I headed to Waco to meet my sister at Georges, head to a party near campus, get kicked off the doorsteps of the girls dorm, then finally head down to Houston I believe for an a capella band concert?! Hell of a time.
This one is very college-coed friendly with the hits and some 80s and some Hip Hop and some Noggin remixes / edits to spice it up.
This track includes hits from, but not limited to:
Genesis
Eminem
New Order
Miss Kittin and the Hacker
INXS

part a
part b
Good to be back, missed yall.
DISCLAIMER: Technical problems and so this recording is crap…I try to make it up to yall by including an older, unreleased show.
The line-out / my recorder / my cable wasn’t working properly, so straight up, this recording sounds like crap. In the spirit of truth, however, I will still post it for anyone interested. Hopefully, this isn’t a problem at the station, and I’ll get this fixed soon…it’s just going to involve soldering underneath a table and I’m really not too excited about that part. Welcome back indeed… sorry bout that yall.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
White Stripes
Noel Gallagher / Oasis
Herb Alpert
George Michael
Johnny Paycheck
etc, etc…
To make up for the crappy recording today, I’m including 2 hours from the Random Routes show I covered for Gary a few weeks ago. He gave me cds to play which are a bit different from what I normally play, but there is some good bluegrass type stuff in there.

Title: What’s your sign (demo)?
Artist: Pizza Party
Album: Pizza Party demos
Date: 2010

The Red House Studio was like an orphanage, we left so many tracks to fend for themselves in the wild.
This is a demo I worked out solely on the ESQ-1 to a) prove that I could do it and b) get that 80’s teen movie vibe. Mix that with ultra-smooth r&b vibe and now yer getting into stirring territory.
Pizza Party vocalist – let’s get some vox, alright?!

Title: ESQ1 Preset Jam
Artist: Noggin
Album: As Yet Unknown
Release Date: 2009

Much like yesterday, this one is in honor of another Ensoniq keyboard. The ESQ1 and the EPS look like brothers. Both coming to us from the future of 1986, they both were considered ‘workstations’, in that they offered sound design and a very similar, multi-track sequencer to arrange all this sound. They differ however, in their sound generation scheme. While the EPS was a sampler (which basically turned into a badass synth once you got the samples in it), the ESQ1 was straight up, a very tweakable synth. I have to respect this piece because, even though it’s not covered with knobs, as is the fad these days, no parameter is more than one button press away.
Anyway, it’s about the best synth you can get, and once I got mine, this Sonic The Hedgehog-ish jam came out instantly. That minimoog patch just BEGS for wheel modulation, and by god, I give it up.
All sounds in this are ESQ1 presets, with the exception of the bass, which I had to program to check the bass on this beast…which I had mistakenly been told was not very good.
This one goes out to Jason R, who I’d like to thank for the kind message regarding this site, but I haven’t called back because I’m just too out of it still.
The response to this work has been really great, and I want to thank ALL of you for all your kind words. If I could make one request, tell me in a comment! Immortalise your words and fill google with trash, LETS DO THIS.
