A Deeper Understanding

Noggin – A Deeper Understanding


Title: A Deeper Understanding (full mix)
Artist: DJ Noggin
Album: A Deeper Understanding
Date: 2012

This mix is seriously about 5 years in the making. Long ago, my homey Robsi asked me for a mix of extremely mellow house music that he could study to. Maybe you could call me a perfectionist, because here on the eve of the last test he might ever have to take, I feel the tracklist is complete. And I mean that – had I done it at any point prior, some of these excellent tracks would have been omitted seeing as they weren’t released yet.
It’s a subdued and melodic affair, straight to the dome, releasing tension amidst an omnipresent hope and optimism.
Put it on late night, put it on out of your mind, or do as intended, pop in the earbuds, crack open the law books, and get absolutely no studying done.
Includes hits from, but not limited to:
Sascha Funke
Ellen Allien and Apparat
Golden Boy and Miss Kittin
Safety Scissors
etc, etc…

Live at Stafford Sober October Demos

Noggin – mawL (Live from Stafford)

Part 1

Title: mawL (Live from Stafford)
Artist: Noggin
Album: Sober October
Date: 2009

Once again, giving yall two tracks today so nobody can blame for taking an ‘out’ on a technicality. I posted the demo version of this track earlier this year, and here is the first recorded version. I played this song at Stafford in December as part of the Skull-you-know-what-er show that I also had participated in the year before. Basically, every musician still in town took over this empty bar in a time when the crowds are gone and so we can dominate and do what we do how we do.
The base chords out of this track came from Buzz samples, the drums all MPC, and this version even includes some An1x for fun.
MPC via a Yamaha DMP-7 (LOVE that sound) mixer to the cd recorder at Stafford.
Chuck originally called this one “Walking home”.
