Props to my homey Mikey for a killer guest-curation on last night’s dern-near-full moon new moon / solstice edition of Groovesday. It’s like riding the back of a purple-eyed Orca around the perimeter of Barbados, surfing the wake of a cruise ship en-Route to Easter Island, where it beaches itself, and before burning/suffocating, tries to bury itself in the sludgy mud of the deserted shore.
It’s all live, all freestyle, we had a good time with it – hope yall enjoy.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
VΞRACOM
Unicorn Kid
Salem
∆AIMON
Lѵʒﬦɨϵﬦ
etc, etc…

Title: Sideslipping
Artist: Noggin
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2000

One of the most epic Noggin classics from the pinnacle of Buzz-dom.
It’s big ass trip-hop, some guitar, huge beats, the freshman movie sample syndrome, and somehow this mystical 10 minutes that kind of evaporate into the ether if you stay through the whole thing.

Artist: Noggin
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2001

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.
Did I mention acid?

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

Title: The Atchison Affair
Artist: Noggin
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2000

I’m calling this style Final Fantasy Epic Breakbeat Growliness.
Named after a prof I had in school who I just didn’t get along with at all. Somehow, this piece grew to be over 10 minutes long. Heavy breaks and lots of growling synths.
Not really a Wednesday track, but I’m trying to get it so December (the last month!!!) is just killers every day.
All Buzz.

Album: Sober October demos
Date: 2010

This is another song written in 2009 very late at night in a very wet, very dark, mildly heated Anacortes upstairs room. Pretty sure I was up waiting for the meteor shower, or I had just come back from it. I think I wrote the majority of mawL on this same night.
Finally recorded last winter in the Sunnybrook garage.
Yer basic MPC-trip-tech-to-tape traversal.

Title: Round Up (Dosie-Do mix)
Album: As Yet Unknown

Part 1

This track was originally released 11 years ago today.
ScottyP and myself had been wanting to do a collaboration, and I got this about halfway there when I sent it to him for his side of the story. I can’t remember what his exact reaction was, but it was like, ‘I’m not touching that with a ten foot pole’. Let’s just say I took this one to the edge and then tossed the corpse over with a string tied to it and my own ankle.
If you like your house dark, slamming, and garage style, you’ll dig this.
And do stick around for the breakdown courtesy of some Carolina folk down on Cripple Creek.

Title: Žižkov Nights
Artist: Noggin
Album: Buzz Exports
Date: 2004

Firmly rooted in the glitch aesthetic when this grew out. The product of cold nights in Eastern Europe and not wanting to take the tram to any social part of town.
Let me take this opportunity to remind myself that the bed I had in that room was the hugest thing I’ve ever seen – you couldn’t find sheets to fit it (our landlord was a furniture maker so all the furniture was totally custom). He was kind enough to leave a sweet boombox though with aux input so I was able to have a more decent monitoring situation and still pump out the hits.
Lots of melody and buffer stalling.
