Another IDM travelogue inspired by the remote land arrows of the Transcontinental Airway System. Music for dancing, thinking, or especially (if you have the means) driving.
I've spent an agonizing 11 days dialing this one to perfection. Another bumper that hearkens back to my high school days, when a song couldn't possibly have enough rhythm tracks. Suitable for all your living-room silent discos.
A bit of Four Tet meets '90s house, with a sideways glance to Laurie Anderson. Inspiration. Recorded for my new monthly subscription music project, Faulty Machine Recordings Service.
Not a Donald Fagen cover, alas, but a moody slice of danceable IDM in the early-'90s style. Recorded for my new monthly subscription music project, Faulty Machine Recordings Service.
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.
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. [more inside]
A downtempo dance tune... I think. Yep.
I made this one a couple of years ago. Quite catchy and cheerful, gets a bit stupid near the end (to put it mildly).
Bouncy, clicky, synthy (is that a word?), could probably use proper mastering but this is the best I could do!
Another song from my concept CD that has been long in the making. This one was inspired by riding Washington, DC's Metro system to and from work every day.
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!
