This is my last solo Groovesday for a while. We keep it all over the place just trying to push every button I can before I step out that door down that old dusty. The AC is broken in the station so this is literally the sweatiest show I’ve ever done as well – wonder if that comes through to yall?
Gets rolling on the jungle tip then cruises into familiar four to floor and finally all-bets-off territory. Even hit that requested Euro flavor.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Adnan Marquez-Borbon
Sun Ra
Dawn Penn / Bounty Hunter
Sak Noel
Caustic Window
etc, etc…

Really had a good time on this show using the station equipment. That means a couple rack cd-players and the volume-only mixing board. It makes for a different style of mixing which I must say is growing on me. More of the let the songs play out and mix themselves vs. sculpting the mix with eq.
The first half hits a lot of drum n bass / jungle styles, the second half goes more electro / four to floor / house type ish.
I want to give a big shout to those who caught me on the internet streaming – really appreciate all the love.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Ed Rush and Optical

Title: Common Ground
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.

Fast paced jungle + some drum n bass originally intended to be set to an acapella of Eminem. That’s one of my favorite tracks off that album. This one is entirely buzz tracker junglism.
Borderline drill-n-bass but not enough rolls, I suppose.

You might recognise this one as it served as stomping ground for and went on to become the music for a video I had to make for class.
This adds a little melody to the already destructed beats.

Title: Filmick

Date: 2004

Created for a project I had in video production class. The track began to materialise as Tom and I were synthesizing bass drops to test his car sound system with, and I worked one into a remix I did of a track I had previously done for film class. It ended up being an exercise in taking it one-step further…pretty nuts amen breaks, real glitch samples, insane chirps, I just wanted to suck up and repurpose cliches into something a bit harsh.
it’s all buzz.

Date: 1998

I’m dedicating this week to collaborations.
One of the most good-vibesin’ bit of collaborating I did was with Matt aka SOMA. I can’t recall the details on how we became aware of each other, but it probably had something to do with rotorkopf and definitely had a lot to do with Buzz. He asked me to collaborate on a track, and as I was just learning the intricacies of amen junglism, I used this as a good excuse to get some more chopping under my belt. His melodies were so inspiring, and the sound fx track was something pretty new to me. I also really dug the tempo changes, even though I don’t think I had ever (knowingly) gone into that territory.
This is about as classic Buzz as it gets…some pluck string, primi fun squelching away, tick-style tracker madness and chiptune pad samples.
We would go on to do a couple more songs together, amongst remixing each others’ work whenever the need arose.

EDIT: track is fixed.
A Buzz classic. Playing with the dichotomy of distorted/cut up breaks against uber-melodic pure synthesis.
This was one of the first pieces I did with Buzz, and really probably where I first came to love the junglist amen freakery school of thought.

Request Thursday in full effect (if you’ve never made a request before GET AT ME! You don’t have to know what you want, just give me an idea let’s freestyle together!).
When I moved to San Marcos in 2000 I left a radio show I had been doing for 2 or 3 years to my cohost DJ Fro and his new cohost Big Dookie (no that’s not what he called himself then but it is what we call him now). Wanting to play live again, and also visit the show I had so lovingly nurtured, we set up this in studio performance one Wednesday night during thanksgiving or christmas or something while were all back in town.
In the studio we had Fro, Dred, PolyPatrick, JoMoNo, Big Dookie, myself, and I know Mike was there finishing up most of the time. We had a great time just trying to get the sampler all hooked into the board and also synced with my backing cd of hihats…don’t hate yall I was working with very limited technology and 16 total samples was just not enough to play this track so I had to put them on a cd and then play drums, keys, strings, and samples over that. So yea, this is for the most part live. Yes there is a blatant Underworld sample I figured I’d do something I couldn’t legally do on record live.
Huge thanks to Fro for engineering this whole thing, and it’s funny because this definitely is an early instance of almost every conversation I have with a sound guy these days.
