Title: And the Whole Face of the Earth Smiled
Artist: Noggin
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2002

Every now and then, this inner cornball in me stands up and shouts loudly messages of love and sentimentality and corndogs and cheese.
This is one of those moments.
Kind of a killer beat, some glitchiness, tons of melody, glide synths, beat box samples (like from yer mouth, yo), all wrapped up in computer nerdom that is the tracker-tune.
This one’s all Buzz.

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’.

Album: Classic Trash
Date: 2001

Cruisin along the edge of the cheese escarpment, I bring to you a pretty Buzz-standard trackerised happy song. Well its not so much ‘happy’ song as it is ‘content song’.
It was originally called ‘newbassfix’ which kind of reminds me that I was experimenting a lot with bass around this time (thanks new sub). Not sure what’s new about it, but there you go.
It’s all buzz. Just being bored in my dorm.

Date: 1998

Yo Matt, some of these are more CLASSIC than TRASH, so please don’t take it the wrong the way ;].
Here’s another collaboration we did following in the square-wave melodic stylings of Mr. SOMA’s own work. I think I did the 808s on this one, and the vocals (found deep in the bowls of the internet). Of course I could be totally wrong about that, and honestly I think this was mostly homedude’s track, so all props to him.
Super happy tracker mellow style courtesy your jeskola buzz.
