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…

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.

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

Saturday remix: Free download.

Hello there, I’ve been having an afternoon of musical creativity and technical shenanigans, resulting in not one, not two, not even three, but four new tracks being added to my page on Bandcamp.

Three of them are completely new and original compositions by yours truly, (about which, more to follow) but for starters I’d like to present you with a gift, free, gratis and without charge, (ok, that’s primarily for copyright reasons, but still…) in the form of my remix of a goth classic; The Cure‘s Carnage Visors.

Carnage Visors was originally conceived as the soundtrack to a film which never saw the light of day, (although you can watch a short clip of it HERE) and was included on some versions of the band’s 1981 album, Faith.

I have mucked about with it before, making an extremely eclectic mashup mix involving several songs by wildly differing artists, which was only partially successful if I’m honest. But this time I spent a considerable amount of time composing an extended piece of original music with which to remix Laughing Bob and friends’ hypnotically gloomy epic.

So here is my enhanced version, which you may download for free or listen to via the embedded player below, entitled rather unimaginatively, Carnage Re-Visor.

Stay tuned for more music news coming soon, don’t touch that dial…

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…
