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.

Midnight mix.

While we’re on the subject of mixing, here’s the result of me mashing together two of my own crazily cacophonous creations to come up with an even more extraordinarily eclectic confection of sonic extravagance.

Behold the frenetic, skittering, glitching cavalcade of confusion which is Klatter

Midweek mix.

For my latest experiment in sound, I have been playing with complex rhythms and vocal samples.

The idea that it is hard to spot rhythmic themes from their component parts until they are all brought together, was the basis for my weekend’s sonic alchemy, which goes some way to explain the initially puzzling intro to this, a track I’m calling Kon-Fusion.

Give it a minute to get going, then see what you think…

Midweek remix.

I was idly fiddling with my musical creation gizmos at the weekend and ended up making a new and extended remix of my original tune, Cuban Feelz.

This version is more what I was aiming for the first time round, with more depth, more layers and an all-round bigger sound, I hope you like it.

Tuesday is tunes day.

Last week one of my all-time favourite bands was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; techno pioneers and all round godfathers of electronic music, Kraftwerk.

In 1977, the Dusseldorf based, musical cycling addicts and transportation nerds released the hugely influential and groundbreaking Trans Europe Express. Much of the album features rhythmic motifs derived from the sound of trains clattering over rail tracks, producing an irresistible beat and perfectly matching their “motorik” sound.

So, by way of an homage to their recent elevation to Rock Gods status, I have created a completely original tribute of my own, cheekily entitled Trans Asia Express, which you can sample and/or purchase using the player link below.

All aboard!

Sunday techno rock mix.

Yes, I have been at it again; playing with my sampler and mixing decks to produce a double layered, bespoke and completely original new mix. Combining pumping techno rhythms with wall of sound guitar feedback and metal riffs, I bring you Metalik, an epic masterpiece now available on Bandcamp.

You can listen for free and/or purchase the track for a piddling fee with the embedded player link below.

Rock on, my dudes.

Bank holiday bonus track.

As promised, I’m here to premiere another new tune, which I was originally going to use as part of a project to remix The Cure‘s epic instrumental track, Carnage Visors.

This particular incarnation of the evolving composition proved unsuitable for the final version of the Cure mix, (about which, more later) but it seemed a waste to consign it to the digital scrapheap, so I added some atmospherics to the basic framework and voila!

Sunday mix.

I’m proud to present two more eclectic selections from my new musical output for your Sunday evening listening pleasure.

First a funky little number called Brass Monkey Business, featuring the warm and organic sounds of horns and guitars…

…contrasting nicely with this bouncy slab of techno, going by the name of Biometrik

Hope you enjoy those, sorry if you’ve been waiting since last weekend, I completely forgot.

As a bonus, I shall be uploading another new tune tomorrow, promise…

Friday mix double header.

With another unplanned week off work as corona-furlough strikes again, I’ve been sitting in my garden studio (oh, alright, in a comfortable chair with my phone) adding to my rapidly expanding music catalogue.

First there’s this chilled out cinematic epic, once again produced from scratch with two completely separate, bespoke pieces of music, which I then mixed together on my DJ app…

…and here is the accompanying, multilayered video I created for it:

After which I was inspired by the warmth of the sunshine to make this rather infectious, (in a good way) Latin-tinged, rhythmic electro number…

…with more optical gymnastics to go with it:

More to come tomorrow, watch this space.
