Date: 2001

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.

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.

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.

Date: 2002

More midweek chill (thanks Keith).
My friends at SWT and I used to drive around the hill country a lot. Many evenings and setting suns spent sailing the serpentine spine of the Devil’s Backbone.
This might be an un-naturally skewed chill representation of that time of life, but it was definitely developed in the darkness following one of said drives.
This is all Buzz and also includes guitar (I did get really into that I had forgotten).

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?

Let this one just unfold on ya.
Snaps, beats, atmospherics, this is me revisiting my trip hop vein after a minor absence with the dabble into more psy-styles. Phil heard this and was immediately down to flow over it. Where you at homey? Drop them bars for me.

Artist: Noggin
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.

Title: Tolerant
Artist: Noggin
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2001

I mean I really went crazy with Buzz…I have to admit that the high amount of output when that was my main (only) production tool is part of the reason I started this whole blog.
This is me trying out synths a lot more, well trying to tweak them to what I wanted at least KNOWING a little about what I was tweaking was doing.
Its psy, its acid, its breaks, big beat, whatever you want to call it. Got a bit of mid-career Orbital energy in it (a constant inspiration).

Title: Lost In
Artist: Fade
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2000
Original
Acoustic
This is one of the first collaborations with a bonafide vocalist and myself on programming. Robsi had the lyrics ready and wanted to hit that Kid A vibe that was kicking around pretty good at the time. Well we did our own take, and were both pretty happy with how it came out. A couple remixes followed.
We produced the majority of this in Buzz, but I believe vocals were tracked out in Vegas or Nuendo, and the acoustic remix was totally in whichever program that was. We took Buzz integration to the next level with this one, what with the guitars and vox and 808s etc.
Bonus for yall, acoustic remix is included.

Soaring, melodic, sophomoric, string-breaks. This is all Jeskola Buzz from when I was just starting out with this more electronic production. I felt real classy I after I spit this one out at 16. At 9 minutes long, this was an early epic.
Diggin on the primi-fun and the newfound favorite (at the time), Whitenoise’s Delta. Glide function on a synthesizer WOW.
