Tonight’s show is something I’ve always wanted to do – super deep, dank house with a nod to the melodic side. It felt real good to pull this one off. Seriously IDM at times, pretty straight up house at others. Even includes vocals for the pop kids.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Murcof
Adam Johnson
Kid606
Dave Gahan
Al Haca Soundsystem
etc, etc…

Wow this was a good show – props Dag-Nab-It.
We keep it pretty chill house for hour 1, but then get into the trip hop and weirder stuff after midnight. This one’s got it all…mixing, sampling, fx, scratching…we even manage to drop some vox in courtesy Big HAWK, in homage to the dude.

The first ~half of the show, I played a recording from a recent live show I jumped in on at Revolution in Bryan, TX. The recording came out good, and it’s a succinct snapshot of where I’m at right now, especially in terms of MPC production. Anyway, more on that later when I post it up.
So I only recorded the second half of the show when I got back to normal DJing…this evening with all CDs (what a concept!).
Kept it more on the mellow and the glitchy tip, if yer into that sort of thing.

DJ Dag-Nab-It and I take it back to the radio style as we get him all trained up in the ways of the Bell Studio.
We missed recording the intro but bring it in early in the first track. A bit of a nod to the past, and a slight trip into the more hip-hop grooves that inspire and move us.

Album: Fade EP
Date: 2003

More Brit-pop-avec-idm with Robsi. This one was pretty much done entirely in Reason, and I think we did most of it in one day.
Main thing about this is the vocoder…its like voices vocoded with delayed versions of themselves, guitar, drums, synths, the vocoder patches in this were like a cat’s cradle of patch cables (my favorite part about reason).
ps. and dig that we were doing the halftime drums before the brits were even doing it…well it was an accent back then whereas its like the norm nowadays.

Finely wrapping up the GaGeAsSeBr release…
This one was kind of a slap in the face to every thing I thought I knew. I wanted to take production in a very conscious different direction, and of course keep it loop-based so I could pull it off live. The live shows never happened, as I made the GaGeAsSeBr tracks in a bout a week or a month or some other sort of ADD timeline and moved on. Big synths (as big as I could get out of Buzz at the time)…these pieces are like little love-letters to Buzz itself.
The radio will return folks – this project might be coming to a close but I aint giving up the Morning Groove.

It’s not too early in the week to party, right?
This one grew out of proposition to ‘dj’, indirectly, again, a Halloween party happening in Waco. I prepared the mix beforehand, then Jared and I headed to Waco to meet my sister at Georges, head to a party near campus, get kicked off the doorsteps of the girls dorm, then finally head down to Houston I believe for an a capella band concert?! Hell of a time.
This one is very college-coed friendly with the hits and some 80s and some Hip Hop and some Noggin remixes / edits to spice it up.
This track includes hits from, but not limited to:
Genesis
Eminem
New Order
Miss Kittin and the Hacker
INXS

Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2000

Shout out to my buddy Lyman on this one. At the time, one of the only people I actually knew who was producing electronic music in Central Texas in 2000. Think about how for granted we all take ‘producers’ these days – every dude with a computer and awareness of beatport is an ‘edm producer’ nowadays. We didn’t call it edm, we called it ‘techno’, not because it was accurate but because it was a perfectly good term and nobody cared and I’m kind of bitter that people keep trying to come up with a ‘better’ term.
Plus, if anything, this is IDM (the most loaded genre-term in the history of pretentiousness).
I really put a lot into this, from recording raw material, editing the sh*t out of said raw material, dropping it into buzz, and coming to terms with multi-band compression for the mastering that followed production.

This one was all about the drums and breaking out of any sort of genre that might have tried to encapsulate me in 2002. Its heavy on the melody and heavy on the bit of bounce. Its weird and its funky and damn I like it more now than I even did then, I think. Also managed to pull every tracker technique out the book on this one.
dig it.
Shout out to Arguru.
