Album: Every Early Experiment
Date: 1998

Throwback tuesday.
One of the first jams to emerge from the S20 back in the day. Main synth line is totally ripped from an Orangator preset ‘Jarresound’. Anybody else use Orangator? HELL of a synth from a time when soft synths were all hell.

Track 3 off the GaGeAsSeBr suite is a bit more focused techno than the other sort of noodling loop fests. We’re still going for the loop-based production style, but you’ll find 4 to the floor drums and some soaring, some acidic synths in here.
This one needs what their calling these days

a drop.

It’s got some psuedo-drops for sure. Bass drum on my subwoofer is kicking me hard right now.

Release Date: 1999

Got to get this one up as it just happens to be next in my list of ‘candidates’.
Funky breaks acid jam. The original is a ten-minute acid epic…this one was me using the power of Acid, which, at the time, was pretty unbelievable. Can you believe we used to MANUALLY loop and resample and tweak and stretch and pitch and tune our loops to be sample accurate, integer value multiples of each other!? WE DID! And often times, without a graphic display. Acid came along and changed all that. Finally, a digital audio workstation that was BPM-centric. You could somewhat haphazardly throw a ton of loops into it, and it would stretch all of them to fit into the same tempo. I mean this was revolutionary. Hardware samplers were just starting to do this, but their time-stretch algorithms were so slow and poor, that most all of them (Akai S-20, MPC, I’m looking at you) just resampled the loops (much like a dj changing turntable speeds).
This new technology gave me the power to loop up anything and everything and then just ‘paint’ songs together (I love that paradigm in Acid). This was a loop based composition then, and intended to be used as a live version of ‘Generations’. I did end up playing this one live quite a lot, required 2 or 3 floppies (so slow to load…haters), and the ‘score’ i printed out was like 6 pages of soundwaves taped together.
You can tell I’m still wet behind the ears cause I can’t get enough of those movie samples.

Release Date: 2004

Ok yea this one’s not too interesting composition wise, it’s just a loop for a minute and a half of a Jan Birkin song “Jane B”. The idea was to give some fledgling mc some beats to work with. I’ve got a bunch more of these cause ol’ P-Nutz fancies himself a wee bit of a rapper.
This is ripped straight from the original 45 though – *cred* (thanks mom, it was her record).
