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…

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!
