A C I D

Happy Birthday Charlie. I wrote this song for Charlie cause he was like a huge reason I got into this music in the first place. He needed a theme song and we were both brought up on high-energy and psuedo acid/rave sounds out of Europe. As such, this is the most dj-friendly tune I’ve ever done, I think. The casual listener might be a little put-off by the twelve-inch-ness of it, buildups and whatnot, but to my dear fellow DJs, please take this one and run with it.
All Buzz.

Title: Tolerant
Artist: Noggin
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2001

I mean I really went crazy with Buzz…I have to admit that the high amount of output when that was my main (only) production tool is part of the reason I started this whole blog.
This is me trying out synths a lot more, well trying to tweak them to what I wanted at least KNOWING a little about what I was tweaking was doing.
Its psy, its acid, its breaks, big beat, whatever you want to call it. Got a bit of mid-career Orbital energy in it (a constant inspiration).

Title: Beat Friends
Artist: Noggin
Album: Sober October
Date: 2011

Did I time it right? Are we conveniently at a collaboration Thursday again? SCORE.
Friend on the street, friends on the beat, beat friends.
Jon provided the base drum sounds during a visit to Denton. Amazing what you can do with only a single sm57 overhead. I have gotten so much mileage out of these sounds, sometimes I want to scrap every other drum sample I have. I also love using my fingers to recreate what it takes homedude an entire body and a fair amount of stinky sweat to pull off.
This track almost made it onto the Old Town Acid EP, but I felt it really went with the vibe of this collection , so here it is.
MPC and x0xb0x straight to 1/4″ reels via Mackie mixer and LXP-1 on send.
Chuck originally called this one “Day in the life of a hypnotist”.

This one falls into the forgotten tracks territory. When I started getting into glitch, I just had to experiment as much as I could. This one has your definite glitch backdrop, with a hint of a pretty menacing 303 and some boom bap beats. Also, FFT fx courtesy Drink.

Title: Jersey Reds
Artist: Noggin
Album: Phase
Date: 1998

An early foray into breakbeat acid via a classic sample you’ve heard in such places as Chemical Brothers B-sides.
It’s all Buzz here with the classic Jeskola Bass2 -> Jeskola NiNja Delay combo in full, s/h effect.
Dedicating this one to the first people I met from New Jersey, some cool girls participating in the national video competition in Kansas City (we got 5th). Never forget that lost correspondence – “hey noggin, nice meeting you. i want to hear what texas techno sounds like”.
Named after a sweet trickshot from virtual pool.

Major props to all those who came out to Birds and the Beats vol. 3 episode 1.
And double props to those who came out to Murphys the following night.
Here’s a live version of a track I recorded at the Stafford Main Street for a semi-regular Holiday show in 2009. Thanks to Houston for making sure it sounded good, and for recording this performance.
Jon Alderson on the drums, which we recorded in Denton, TX, and which have somehow interjected into my life every day since (this fool can drum, let me say).
Look for the studio version of this track coming soon on the Sober October record.
And let me take this opportunity to give my love and support to the Stafford in Bryan, TX. Best sound from Houston to Austin (no BS), and a killer vibe…I hope to come back someday.
