Artist: Noggin
Album: Buzz Exports
Date: 2004

Firmly rooted in the glitch aesthetic when this grew out. The product of cold nights in Eastern Europe and not wanting to take the tram to any social part of town.
Let me take this opportunity to remind myself that the bed I had in that room was the hugest thing I’ve ever seen – you couldn’t find sheets to fit it (our landlord was a furniture maker so all the furniture was totally custom). He was kind enough to leave a sweet boombox though with aux input so I was able to have a more decent monitoring situation and still pump out the hits.
Lots of melody and buffer stalling.

This one gets mixed up in my mind with another one I have with a similar title and vein. I think what happened was I was working on one in Praha one night, really digging it, then, thanks Buzz, I saved it in such a way that made the file unreadable. This happened often depending on your buzz configuration. Anyway, so I think I quickly tried to recreate what I had lost, but instead did something pretty different.
Here’s your sunday track. This is that lounge-lizard boom bap Buzz style.

Recorded as a letter home to my parents while I was living in Praha, Czech republic. Inspired by the version from Bobby Horton, this is my playing of ‘the most beautiful song ever written’.
Thanks to Thoams for the microphone, which worked pretty well, and luckily, the computer fan only started buzzing right at the tail end of this thing.
