Bricolage VA Volume 4

I get a few requests now and again to review other artists work and it’s nice to get something that has a range of musical styles. Yes, believe it or not techno isn’t my only love.

There is a bit of ambient, bit of glitch I suppose and some bass music ranging from dub to drum & bass. And there are a couple of cool techno tracks on it too.

The one that really floats my boat is jaffaKid – Experience. If you follow my music you will know that I veer towards the proggy end of techno and this is right there with me. Sweeping arpeggios and weird detuned synth pads along with sparse club drums at a pace that’s probably a little too fast for me these days..but that’s what the pitch control is there for right? Definitely reminds me of the very early 90s and some of the tracks coming out of the German techno scene before it morphed into trance.

The whole thing is available for a pay what you want, so take a listen to the rest and if anything floats your boat then chuck them a quid or so.

Nice work fellas.

MCHNWRKS 03

So I just realised that I haven’t updated this site for ages. What’s gwarn? Loads really. I’ve DJd a few times in Bangkok but generally taking it easy with less gigs this year and more production. Currently just finishing off remixes for MCHNWRKS 04 and also SimpleCoding who are my friends in Argentina.

Studio coming on nicely, sold a few things and bought a few things including an Elektron Octatrack which is just a brilliant piece of kit. Working a lot less in the box these days.

And we released MCHNWRKS 03!!. It’s been picked up by a few people and there is a video of it floating around the web of my remix being played in a club in Toledo, Spain. Pretty cool really.

You can find the release here if you want to listen or support us 🙂

The bandcamp version has an exclusive track from Owen De Vivo AKA RhythmDial.

And just for good measure I’ve stuck a free download Ambient version of my Meteor2216 remix on Soundcloud.

Fill your boots.
