Title: Why Kill the Cliche?
Artist: Noggin
Album: Phase
Date: 1998

And now, ladies and gentlemen, the Phase album (my first CD – not first album) is complete. This is the first track which I intended to pretty much set the stage for how I felt about the state of music at the time. In highschool, kids were so caught up in ‘techno’ being ‘video game music’ and ‘fake’ and blah blah ignorant ignorant drivel. I wanted this track to make all those @$$holes feel like they were totally right.
The song title is a direct homage to an absolute CLASSIC Buzz track by Low Occurence, titled ‘How to kill the cliche’.

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.

Title: Formation (Noggin’s Logic mix)
Artist: Ilya (Dred)
Album: Formation Single
Date: 2001

This is a remix I did for my friend Ilya’s track off one of his concept albums. Was this July? I have since found this track called different things on different works. There are 4 mixes of this song out there…this one is my contribution.
Massive breakbeat workout in buzz. The beats I believe I actually made in some other program, then imported as loops into buzz for further sample manipulation. Further evidence that breaking the workflow even one bit can yield much more interesting results. Sum is greater than the parts, knowwhatimean?
