Just stumbled upon this gem from 2015. This was when I was just getting my Euro Rack setup going and messing around with Ableton and video clips.
It’s a great feeling to hear something you’ve created included in someone else’s set. Thanks to Josh at SubSpec for including Cubic Inches in his podcast.
Once upon a time I started naming all my techno tracks after motorcycle parts. It’s something I know well and it’s easy to pull a part name out of my head when I’m rendering a project. For some reason it felt weird to go back and rename tracks to something ‘cool’ or ‘meaningful’. The bad thing is the names seam a bit weird to non gear heads. Good thing is the track names stick out on web pages. Probably a good thing in a world where anyone can release music.
Honored to have these 3 tracks published on SubSensory‘s 80th release. Congrats to them for sticking to their guns year after year.
I built these tracks some time ago. All three tracks on this release were born from trying out different styles of composing once the core loops were built.
I was heavy into the ‘Mr. Robot’ TV series and this rant from the main character really stuck with me.
It’s sort of a bummer when I publish something and make it available for download on Soundcloud and I see one person downloaded it. I feel like this is one of the best things I’ve ever put together and the two times I got to drop it on a dance floor people were into it. Sometimes it’s difficult to detach from something and look at it objectively. Sometimes it’s also nice to just look at the world and yell ‘fuck society’ and then drop a giant synth riff.
Sometimes I hear something in a movie or documentary that resonates with me so much that I build a track around it. Bleeder is one such track. Soon as I track down the documentary is from I’ll post it here. This is available for download from Soundcloud.
SubSpec release #42 – These tracks received a great response on dance floors. Old school hip hop fans might notice a sample from Paris in generator.
