Back in December, DJ Dag-Nab-It and I had the pleasure of being asked to provide the ambiance at a wedding here in town. The criteria was unique – keep it classy and make it feel like post-WWII.
Well we had a blast doing this one. Kind of a beautiful set up to the actual event as well – Dag-Nab-It scored some great records from Uncle “Smokey” Al Hanson (thanks Uncle Al), and I found the main record that was requested literally on the last dig I went on.
This weeks show includes hits from, but not limited to:
Herb Alpert
Henry Mancini
Ella Fitzgerald
Antonio Carlos Jobim
Various Pops groups
etc, etc…

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.

Title: Let it drop
Artist: Noggin
Album: Phase
Date: 2000

This track really kicked off my trip-hop obsession in a big way. For this track, and a whole slew of tracks after it, I really wanted that hard hitting, smeared drum sound. Also really got into incorporating outside elements into tracks at this point…some of the first guitar-infused Buzz-ness right here.
Chew a bit on this one folks, it’s easy to swallow.
Unrelated note, really looking forward to Noel Gallagher’s solo album in October.

Title: Agnus Dei
Artist: Orion
Album: Orion
Date: 1998

Here’s a bonus drop for anyone who requested Orion last week.
More work here with the revered and respected Gabriel Winter. If I remember correct, Gabe had this sample + some very loose melodies programmed, and then I got it and added drums + strings. Unfortunately, this song never was finished, and I think might have been the last track we collaborated on (feel free to correct me if you know better).
edit: player fixed.

Just had to get the juxtaposition in with two unrelated on the surface tracks, but both coming from the same place. If I remember, a lot of people liked this track.

This whole album has to make it up here eventually.
Epic dream house from the days when Robert Miles ruled the radio and the clubs. In my more wiser hindsight, I imagine this track sounds much better screwed. Hmmm maybe I can get two posts out of this…
