The Dub Techno Blog has featured one of my tracks:

I’m pretty pleased as this was my first attempt at producing a dub techno track.

This mix was recorded in May 2000 in Leeds, on my trusty Technics 1210s. This is 5 years on from the last one posted so the mixing is pretty respectable by this stage.

We start off with some electro tracks from Simulant, Anthony Rother, and UR, then shift into 4-4 techno via Dave Angel’s gorgeous remix of Model 500’s ‘I Wanna Be There’. On the B-side it’s more melodic with tracks from (Weatherall side project) Deanne Day and Plaid among others.

Restored from cassette March 2017

New music – ‘Vespers’:

Microsleep

October 1st, 2016

Not much access to the ‘studio’ (insofar as it is one) at the moment so this is just a sketch thrown together on the laptop. Mixed on headphones so it might not work so well on speakers.

New music – Hexagons

April 12th, 2016

I’ve recently started dabbling with music again in my spare time. This is the first “finished” track with the new setup, that I’m reasonably happy with. Practice makes perfect, so more better stuff is on the way.

You can download a high quality MP3 version here on SoundCloud.

13 May

May 13th, 2015

  
The weeks seem to be flying by faster than ever. I keep realising that things that I thought happened about a week ago were actually the best part a month ago. It’s May. Where has the year gone?

This I ascribe to the constant background stress caused by the building work on the house. “8-10 weeks”, they said, but this Sunday will mark the end of week 14. Progress has tailed off due to various delays and interdependencies, plus the builders have started on another project. Niggling problems still need fixing.
We’re all pretty much fed up now of living on a building site: Huddled together in a couple of rooms upstairs, crammed with furniture and belongings we want to protect from the worst of the dust; Having the odd tired and pointless argument about something we don’t actually disagree on; Working till midnight to make up for hours lost coordinating things with tradesmen; Eating out, unhealthily, because we don’t have a kitchen to speak of.

Very much looking forward to looking back on these few months. It is going to be a great house. I’m sure it’ll feel worth it once we forget how grinding the process was.
