Grid Muzik/Planet X: Double Bandcamp release.

My Bandcamp profile continues to grow and you can explore it in full by clicking on the image of my back-catalogue, but you can also get a taster right now in this post.

If you caught yesterday’s audio visual spectacular, you’ll have already heard one my two latest compositions, Grid Muzik, but if not you can listen to it here

However, I only completed work on the second of the weekend’s peculiar electronica projects this afternoon, so this will be it’s first public airing.

I’d like to present to you, an up-tempo little number called Planet X, check it out, it’s never quite what you expect it to be…

Wednesday Weirdness: New Bandcamp releases.

Today I have some new and original musical compositions to share with you, in the form of an album and a remix EP. First up are these lively and occasionally noisy tunes; featuring genre-mangling experiments with rock riffs, electro-tinged melodies and techno rhythms, each one available individually or complied into the Xamidimura album (which also includes a bonus remix of an earlier, ’80s-inspired track)… And that is followed by a three track remix project called Interkonnekt, which began when I couldn’t find quite the right sound for the final layer of a mix I was making. Eventually, I used one of the components from a completely different mix and the unexpected success of the arbitrary juxtaposition got me thinking; what if I mixed and matched the two main components of several mixes, what would that sound like..? Well, no need for you to wonder, because it sounds like this. These fabulous new releases can be listened to for free via the embedded Bandcamp players in this post. You can play the track displayed and if you click on the title you can view the track list, which can be purchased individually or in whatever combination tickles your auditory fancy.

Free download: Brand new remix, exclusive to Bandcamp.

This weekend’s musical project was conceived when I heard Tom Tom Club‘s Genius of Love on the radio during the week. That’s most often the time I think “Ooh, that sounds like it has potential for some mucking about” and file it away for future experimentation.

Well yesterday the experiment began.

I started by establishing the BPM and key of the song, (102.9 and B Major, if you’re interested) then I proceeded to assemble an eclectic range of samples from online archives, which I carefully sequenced, after re-tuning them to match the pitch and speed of the original track.

And as usual when I embark on these sonic adventures, I got a bit carried away and ended up making an entirely new and somewhat extended piece of music; one that stands up perfectly well on its own and with which I have to say I was pretty impressed.

But, since I’d made it, I thought it was still worth splicing together with Tom Tom Club’s bouncy, post-punk pop song and the freely playable and downloadable result appears below in all its extravagant glory.

Enjoy.

Wednesday Weirdness: New EP release.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been working on a new EP of original material and I am giving you, my lovely readers, the first chance to experience it in all its glorious, trance-like complexity.

As usual, each track comes with its own bespoke artwork, along with the main cover art and each track is also available to purchase individually.

But you can listen to the entire EP via the embedded player below, should you wish to try before you buy.

Lastly, I’d like to once again express my gratitude to those of you who have already supported my adventures in musical experimentation, it’s always good to know someone appreciates the work I put in to these projects.

So, now it’s time to sit back, turn up the volume and join our future robotic overlords for a bit of a boogie.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the A.I. EP, I hope you enjoy it…

Saturday night music extravaganza double-bill.

Good evening to you, unless it isn’t, then good morning or good afternoon, wherever you may be, I hope you’re having a lovely weekend so far.

I have spent an inordinate amount of time recently, making a couple of extremely complex audio visual delights and the time has come to share them with you.

The first is a completely “original” composition, made using royalty-free samples I found in online archives; created by my usual method of producing two complete eight track recordings and then mixing them together on my virtual DJ decks.

Once again I have lovingly constructed a multilayered, psychedelic, visual feast to accompany the sonic odyssey, Flare Rider, which you may enjoy right here and now. The music will also soon be available as a release on my Bandcamp page.

The second musical offering I have for you is another in my series of unlikely soundclash mixes; this one features some ’80s pop classics, along with some bespoke breaks, beats and bleeping noises from yours truly on the virtual wheels of steel.

It’s also FREE to download on Bandcamp (because; royalties, copyright, etc) so grab a copy for yourself while it’s still available…

Sunday night megamix.

Another in my continuing series of elongated techno mixes, all created from scratch with my sampling/sequencing/mixing apps and available for your listening and purchasing convenience via the player below.

Turn it up and annoy the neighbours.

Midweek musical multimedia masterpiece.

After dabbling in drum and bass for the first time the other day and being pretty impressed with the results, I spent a good chunk of the weekend creating an extended and quite complex mix of a tune I’d begun earlier last week.

The original track was a lot shorter, but by the time I’d composed a completely new one to combine it with, the final edit clocked in at just over 18 minutes, making it more of a 12″ megamix.

Anyway, I hope you like the outcome of my latest musical adventure, which you can listen to via the embedded Bandcamp player. You can also watch the slightly shortened HD video HERE on my Instagram page, or at the lower resolution* YouTube link below.

*YouTube is rather irritatingly refusing to upload high quality video at the moment, so apologies for that.

**edit: You should now be able to view the above video in glorious 720p definition, since YouTube seem to have got their collective shit together.

New album launch.

I’m delighted to inform you today marks the continuation of my musical publishing adventure, with the release of my second full length collection of original material, Sonic Cosmos.

The seven track album was composed, produced and mixed from scratch, using my Remixlive and edjing apps and includes custom-made artwork for each tune (which may also be purchased individually) in addition to the main cover shown above.

This time around there’s a varied selection; ranging from throbbing techno and retro synthwave, to chilled electronica and jangling guitars, all of which you can listen to via the embedded player below, where you may also buy any of the tunes which take your fancy.

Thank you to anyone who has already supported my creative endeavours by purchasing my eclectic (and very reasonably priced) audio output, I hope you all enjoy my latest offering.
