Had a great time playing at The Liquor Store. Everything went according to plan and no major screwups. The new way of setting up my bottom end on the Octatrack sounds full and rich on a real system. My top end was a bit flat but the sound guy added some sizzle back in it. Pretty happy with the sound considering I made everything in my headphones and didn’t get a chance to test on any sort of loudspeakers.
I’ve had quite a few people ask me about my setup and how I play lately. I could have done a video walkthrough but I figured I’d do something different. So, I put together some vectors and type. Check the PDF in link:
A couple weeks ago a played at our local underground spot. It’s a small room, no bar, dark, and cozy. It’s a great place to play because the people that come to the show are there to dance and hear the music. No bullshit.
A lot of this set is freestyled. Almost everything from the TR8, Tb3, and eurorack is done on the fly.

New release available on my Bandcamp page
No major issues this time out. Everything went pretty smoothly and people seemed to enjoy the music. After discussing the set with my friend a bit I think I need to slow down and let the parts of my song play out more. I find myself rushing through things because I feel like they get stagnant but in hindsight, I think there is too much changing too quickly. I forget there really should be an element of trance to techno so you have time to get lost in the rhythm.
