This is one spacey tangent-filled whirlwind of an electronic mix, slicing elements of Ummagma's original version of 'Lama' into a whacked factory of digital sound - not for the light hearted when it comes to electronica, but certainly worth the trip :)
Another song from my newish free EP of quirky electronic cheese, "Part Time Drum Machine." I sort of picture a mechanical sunrise operated by heavy robots intent on bringing light joy. You know. [more inside]
What might be the outcome of taking a rather dreamy pulse-based trance inducing track, stripping it back, adding an addictive disco electronic undertone and phasing ghost-like vocals here and there (and rather rare)…? Have a listen and then you will know :)
When you dig the original of a song so much that you can't imagine how anybody could possibly ever dissect it and re-embody it in an alternate format, sometimes you are pleasantly surprised when indeed someone comes along who capably does just that - with flair, good taste and a handful of cards up their sleeve, dealt ever so cleverly within the remix they have created. That's what we're talking about with this Sounds of Sputnik take on Ummagma's 'Lama'.
From my new (free!) EP 'Part Time Drum Machine', this is an instrumental keyboard-based track driven forward by a cheap synth bass and Casio-ish beats. A different kind of style than you may have heard from me before. [more inside]
Synthpop, Electronica, Indietronica, Electro bliss by the earful and here for the taking. Although it will be a while until this track will be published on any official release, you might enjoy this sneak preview.
Sometimes the original version of a song can be so cool that you think that any remix might just destroy it… and then someone thrills your tits by creating something new from it that sucks you write in a smooches you from the first note. This is one such rework.
I love it when one talented artist can take the work of another talented artist, creatively metabolize it, and then craft output that is impressive in it's own right. This remix takes a quirky electro approach to Ummagma's track 'Lama'. Hope you enjoy it. [more inside]
This is one Ummagma track that has been totally turned on it's head, taking what was a dreampop folkrock-ish track and utterly transforming it into an whirling electro-dance track with traces of vocals from Shauna McLarnon. One slight change from the previous version. [more inside]

An electronica track (possibly describable as “techno”) I created in one day for the 20th Project. It starts with a kick/hi-hat (and later a snare) as well as synth bass and lead lines; the track itself is in 7/4 time. [more inside]
I had a bit of fun with this: it's about a relationship gone wrong. I believe that the dual bass part is rhythmically interesting. Double bass and synth bass rhythmically intertwine and are coupled with a synth trumpet. There may be some Brian Eno influences a la The Drop. My album is available for $5 download at CD Baby: The Dividing Range. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/theseedsofautumn
Kiev-based electronic instrumentalist Dunaewsky69 (a.k.a. Oleksandr Gladun) is one of Eastern Europe's most productive DJs. Otherwise dubbed as the "electronic pilot", his most recent EP "Termination Voice" was nominated for the Qwartz Electronic Music Award. This is his latest remix for Ummagma "Lama". This remix is a departure from the original Ummagma version of "Lama", but hopefully you can also appreciate this remix. [more inside]
Glitchy, build-upy piano-lead electronica track I made in Buzz Tracker a few years ago. [more inside]
Inspired by a friend's photos of the ocean.
Something a bit shorter and more polished with the Korg DS-10 Nintendo DS synth.
This ear-piercing ambient piece was made in 2003, part of a release called Ultraviolet. I was listening to a lot of Terre Thaemlitz at the time, particularly Soil.
I put this ambient track together back in 2003 during one of many sleepless nights, as part of a larger release called Threads. After listening to it again, I liked its hypnotic lull enough to want to share it here, and I hope it rewards your patience.
In the desert, turn toward emptiness; fleeing the self.
Thine age asks ease, and since thy duties be To warm the world, that's done in warming us. Shine here to us, and thou art everywhere; This bed thy centre is, these walls, thy sphere.
An upbeat synthy breaksy tune. The final version of what previously sounded like this, but with samples stripped out for a cleaner effect.
Found on the same CD as the last tune I uploaded, this is a forgotten remix to what I guess is one of my main tunes (I'll upload that later by way of comparison). I actually prefer this version now, though the strings at the end are laid on a bit thick.
Found this on an old CD, but it's about as good as anything else I've done so I'm sticking it out there. A simple, upbeat jungle-technoy thing with layered breakbeats and a nasty synth lead dominating the second half.
A downtempo dance tune... I think. Yep.
1. of or pertaining to the mind. 2. originating in or apprehended by the reason. The first completed track of a new Lestrade collection called Flights of Theory.
Some more noodling with Live and Reason. Brooding percussion and bright leads. I'm happy with the results but it needs a better title. Feedback appreciated.
This song is by Skist (my duo with singer/electronicist Haruna Ito). It's from our new CD. [lyrics inside]
A friend told me all I ever write is ambient stuff (ie) and since she's right but I don't want to admit it, I wrote this. The title comes from a PBF comic I glanced at while trying to think of what to call it. What do you think? Should I stick to my day job?
Halo inspired trance for your Saturday night dance party. I started this one three years ago and finally finished it this afternoon. I don't write for this genre very often, so let me know what you think!
Dark, absurd, neo-cabaret electronica. I played all the parts and sang on it. From DavidTarleton.com
Another new one from the new Ice Cream Creatures EP. Vocals with a strong beat. Love gone bad. But Love is good.
An ambient-ish piece composed entirely of processed flute samples. I go by the name Tx-Rx for the electronica type stuff I do occasionally 'cos, you know, it's fun to have multiple musical personae.
