Title: A Deeper Understanding (full mix)
Artist: DJ Noggin
Album: A Deeper Understanding
Date: 2012

This mix is seriously about 5 years in the making. Long ago, my homey Robsi asked me for a mix of extremely mellow house music that he could study to. Maybe you could call me a perfectionist, because here on the eve of the last test he might ever have to take, I feel the tracklist is complete. And I mean that – had I done it at any point prior, some of these excellent tracks would have been omitted seeing as they weren’t released yet.
It’s a subdued and melodic affair, straight to the dome, releasing tension amidst an omnipresent hope and optimism.
Put it on late night, put it on out of your mind, or do as intended, pop in the earbuds, crack open the law books, and get absolutely no studying done.
Includes hits from, but not limited to:
Shackleton
Sascha Funke
Ellen Allien and Apparat
Golden Boy and Miss Kittin
Safety Scissors
etc, etc…

Title: Blue Heron
Artist: Noggin
Album: Homework
Date: 2008

I had so much fun making this. First use of the 8-outs on the mpc, and really some of the most down and dirty I ever got with that machine. Roland MC-09 on the acid, some protools and UA reverb in there I believe – lots of UA compressors etc (what Up Jonathan hook it up with the box homey!!).
I have a connection with Blue Herons that I cannot explain. I first noticed this in 2008 when I confronted one waiting outside my apartment. Ever since then, I can’t help but feel like they are somehow watching my back when I least expect it. Maybe they are relatives reincarnated, or simply messengers sent from the other side. Either way, this one’s for the birds.

Small glitch in the matrix, but we’re back now.
Dwight Yoakam and wobble bass. You could call it a dabble in wobble.

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

I remember this one birthed itself rather quickly, and I was extremely pleased with the quality of sounds coming out of our favorite tracker. I called it unfinished for so long, cause it just felt so cool I didn’t want it to end, but maybe the extended version I’ll leave up to you, dear remixer.
It’s going back to the industrial roots a little bit, but god forbid there is a bit of backwards acoustic guitar which I think keeps it firmly planted outside the realm of industrial.

part a
part b
A week ago Trypset and I covered the show for Schux Famicom on KEOS – Tea And Crumpets – a show devoted to music from the United Kingdom / British Isles. We pretty much kept it entirely electro that night going back and forth from the old to the new, and what was that? Strictly wax, hombres.
Muchas gracias again to Trypset for sticking through it and getting down in a way we don’t always get to do when DJing the clubs or parties etc.
Classic house, idm fare, bass music, funky robot rhythms, and all while wiggling the airwaves round Bryan / College Station. Oh yea and an entire Orbital set.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Zomby
Boards of Canada
Pinch
Bushwacka
Sully
etc, etc…

Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2002

Fast paced jungle + some drum n bass originally intended to be set to an acapella of Eminem. That’s one of my favorite tracks off that album. This one is entirely buzz tracker junglism.
Borderline drill-n-bass but not enough rolls, I suppose.

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.
