I wanted to make the beat with wood and rock samples only, and then made more funky shit, and of course organ. For the City of Five seasons, or as locals say the city of five smells (thanks to the food processing plants). [more inside]
Happy Valentine's Day! I wanted to make a romantic song built from decidedly un-romantic sounds and images. I mined a lot of half-finished darker, sadder songs that hadn't gone anywhere and assembled a mini-library of static, buzzes, and odd percussion. I did the same with old sad, political or angry poems for the lyrics. [more inside]
A campy, '60s-superhero-show theme for a video game I recently scored! [more inside]
Retro, funky, electro
I thought it fitting that my first Mefi Music post should be something I've never done before and is pretty well outside my usual realm of experience, so tada! This is a beat I made for a friend, but things fell through and now it's a lost soul. [more inside]
We once used to wonder what it would sound like to whip up a healthy feisty mix of dream pop and hip hop - rap and now, thanks to this tasty earbite, we have an idea. Definitely taking a walk on the dark side, underlined by both the music and vocals, this is still definitely worth the listen.
Here's the Smoke Benders, folks. We took Hank Williams' lamentation of an unlucky prisoner from its original waltz time and put a NOLA second line feel under it. Cause, hey, who doesn't like a NOLA second line feel, right? Video at YouTube and Vimeo.
A grooving house remix I did of my own track from the ultra-upbeat original soundtrack of my latest game project, Mighty Switch Force (3DS eShop). [more inside]
Groovin' version of our previous song. [more inside]
Collaborative track composed by Dan West (London-based bass trombonist and generally awesome dude). Looking for feedback! [more inside]
The sites and sounds of my livingroom made to sound like a busy bar much layering
A high-octane, in-your-face synth-strumental. Funky synth bass catapults into swirling portamento melodies and a punchy 5-part harmony in the chorus. Sonic the Hedgehog samples add to the fun.
Deep in the City, a multicolored monster lurks, waiting to devour cavalier hipsters whilst they cavort in a dingy loft. [more inside]

For those times when you just feel like getting funky. [more inside]
A short funky little electronic song I wrote last year under the DJ Dial-tone name.
Something sweet and mellow to watch the rain by. Hot off the press.
