Burial/Fourtet – Moth/Wolf This was initially announced by and sold on Bleep.com and sold out in a matter of minutes. But apparently the Rubadub guys were offered some. If you don’t know what this is, I’d start with the readily available Fourtet & Burial material. If you do know what it is, DON’T SLEEP.
GO HERE FOR LATEST AND GREATEST It has links to a more recent build, the PPC build, etc. Yesterday I couldn’t spell OS X Developer and now, I are one! With some help from my friends on the CMake mailing list I finally got a running standalone OS X application built out of the Paul […]
Every so often you just gotta let loose. This track took me about 45 minutes to make from a standing start. Inspired by buying Scanned Synth which seems really good at making harsh, dirty sounds. Add some drums, some effects, and I jammed it out live in one pass. I undid a couple of loser […]
Sorry for repost, but apparently, this post got trashed in my Blog SQL database. Eff me silly, computers suck. Apparently the post showed up long enough for MKB to comment on it, but then went to the great bit bucket in the sky. The quaintly named Paul Stretch is a program that does extreme time […]
Rolling Stone still thinks Lou Reed’s Metal Machine Music is Controversial? Really? Hasn’t it always been blindingly obvious that “Metal Machine Music” is not intended as listening music for general audiences? I thought this was all settled canon law a long time ago. I am especially puzzled by all the people showing up and then […]
I spend more time than is probably healthy (financially or otherwise) exploring new music on Boomkat. They seem to have fairly no-bullshit reviews for music, and they seem intent on hyping things they actually like, for actual musical reasons. As opposed to a site like Beatport, who seem to hype stuff based on who has […]
(luna/lunarator): MULHOLLAND DRIVE: Lesbian relationship is harmful. (rich/winner): W.: Unspeakable disaster afflicts America. Then terrorists attack. (kent/oh.c’est.haut!): where are you getting those? (kent/oh.c’est.haut!): what about the seventh seal? (kent/oh.c’est.haut!): plague grips europe, things get grim for chess player (luna/lunarator): leave it to kent to come up with some obscure movie that no one’s ever heard […]
Out of work today with a cold, so I lashed up the mix I’d been collecting tracks for. The theme, again, is dub techno & dubstep, with some detours into other genres. The track selection basically came out of listing my ITunes library in the order of most recently added, and picking tracks that I […]
If you slept on the Delia Darbyshire T Shirt, here’s your chance to be ahead of the curve. Analog Industries is going to do a Pierre Schaeffer shirt that’s every bit as swank. Just watch the Analog Industries blog; next week they’ll be taking orders.
Dear reactionary jerks. Before you start spouting about ‘Teabagging Obama’ at your Tea Parties, you should watch this clip from John Waters’ movie “Pecker”:
This is one of the most unambiguous bifurcation of humankind. Either you love fermented vegetables — Sauerkraut, Kim Chee, etc — or you can’t stand them.
I have been mystified by how many Twitter adds I’ve been getting, since I don’t really bother too much with it. But I think I’ve partially solved it. Unfortunately it’s NOT because I’m so awesomely original and brilliant that everyone wants to read my blog posts. Apparently people are setting up automated twitter feeds, that […]
Pangaea is a producer in the Dubstep vein that I like quite a lot for being one of the guys who resists the siren call of the obnoxious wobble bass. He’s not about a bit of appropriation, specifically the chopped, screwed, and pitch-shifted R&B Vocal thing that Burial employed to great affect on his long […]
Here they are, hot off the presses. Turn your speakers DOWN before you play them because I noticed in studio that the bass on these is huge. Something I’ll watch out for on future mixes. Doesn’t sound distorted or bad, just HUGE. http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-04112009-Techno-Mix.mp3 http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-04112009-Techno-Mix.mp3 http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-04112009-House-Mix.mp3 http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-04112009-House-Mix.mp3 Track Listings Mix 1 Congos Congoman (12″ Mix) New […]
You can listen here: http://krui.student-services.uiowa.edu:8200/listen.pls I have recorded 2 new mixes to present, because I’ve had bad experiences trying to mix live on radio, I’ll post them up with playlists later tonight….
I’m putting together a set for a radio show on Saturday night on KRUI FM, so it was my first time playing with Ableton Live 8 and DJing. What’s it like? Short answer — not different enough to have a lot to say about it but there’s a few topics worth covering:
Talk about some Messed Up Motherfuckers. If I didn’t have better things to do I’d be trolling these people, with questions like “So in the middle of the rapture we’re all flying up to heaven naked, and I see a naked girl and have lustful thoughts. Will I plummet back to earth?” Choice Awesomness: MR […]
I’m linking to this product without any particular enthusiasm Black Magic Loop Creator. What irks me is this image: How many times have I seen a pic like this and thought ‘ooh cool!’ only to find out it’s imaginary? Just fucking stop it! What’s even worse, when I first see certain pieces of actual hardware, […]
UAD-1e Express Pack at AudioMidi.com for $99 Apparently Audiomidi isn’t the only place with this deal, but it’s an insane price. It lists at $499, and Audiomidi regularly has them at $299. At that price, you can buy more than one, and the drivers support up to 4 in one system. This is a SHARC […]
Stundenzimmer EP I mention this because A) Stewart is a friend B) I like the tracks C) I did the mastering! Like anything else, might not be to your taste, but like it or not Stewart puts a lot of serious thought and effort into his music. He doesn’t just crank out looped bangers, or […]
