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: mawL (Live from Stafford)
Artist: Noggin
Album: Sober October
Date: 2009

Once again, giving yall two tracks today so nobody can blame for taking an ‘out’ on a technicality. I posted the demo version of this track earlier this year, and here is the first recorded version. I played this song at Stafford in December as part of the Skull-you-know-what-er show that I also had participated in the year before. Basically, every musician still in town took over this empty bar in a time when the crowds are gone and so we can dominate and do what we do how we do.
The base chords out of this track came from Buzz samples, the drums all MPC, and this version even includes some An1x for fun.
MPC via a Yamaha DMP-7 (LOVE that sound) mixer to the cd recorder at Stafford.
Chuck originally called this one “Walking home”.

Title: Lost In (Noggin’s Late Night Rework)
Artist: Fade
Album: Fade EP
Date: 2000

Remix of one of the first collaborations I recorded with a vocalist. One night in Brogdon I just put the headphones on and Buzz’d away on these recordings into the morning hours. Actually, I’m pretty sure that turned into a few nights. Once I got the basic structure down, I really wanted to tweak and refine it.
The original will be coming shortly, featuring Robsi on vocals. We really had a promising thing going with this band, and I hope you enjoy the more brit-pop side of tracker techno.

Part 1

Title: Flat Chronic
Artist: Noggin + Mr. Oizo + Dr. Dre
Album: We All Come Off
Date: 2002

In 2002, the bootleg / mashup craze was in full effect.
This is my contribution.
Originally created for a mix I was making for a Halloween / 80s party, this eventually got pretty much redone completely as I wanted to impart a bit of the glitch aesthetic into it, not to mention the fact that I think straight layered mashups are boring…got to have a little style in there or whats the point?
As such, this is very DJ friendly. Not what I’d call a floor-filler, but drop it once the floor is filled and things will start to get a little crazy.
Bonus points to the person who comments about the secret track hidden the middle of this one.

Title: Palladium
Artist: FM Man
Album: One Man To Freq Them All
Date: 2002

My homey Scott released a superb album once upon a moon ago under his FM Man alias. “One man to freq them all” (I’m proud of coming up with that title) was a pretty great sort of electro / techno / idm opus + glimpse into the early 2000’s Montreal electronic music scence that I’m about to go dig up and jam. I’m pretty sure he produced it mostly in Buzz…my remix definitely came 100% from Buzz, inspired by that sick melody line he worked out. I was getting my feet wet with the glitch aesthetic, and this is something that I was really proud of when it was done.
Yet another fruitful collaboration between Noggin and the unbounded creativity that is ScottyP.
