hd09scaled1My moody / funky/ drum-heavy track Pacific Beats appears on this lovely sampler album put together by Harmonious Discord Recordings.

Head on over to the HD site for samples of all the fantastic cuts on this release, or pick up a copy at Beatport.

Cactus Girl

hd051This four-cut release features an in-depth vocal ride through abstractions and moods with a bass-heavy electro rework by Philidelphia-based glitch head KiloWatts.

The B side throws some funk into the well with a dancefloor rework by California sound-nut Rithma (OM, Tweekin). Distant bells and jackin chords makes this remix an instant body mover. Chakaharta rounds out the EP with a deep and minimal “Funky Dub”.

Samples are up at Harmonious Discord Recordings, or head over to Beatport to pick up the EP.

A Warm Focus EP

Posted on | March 30, 2004 | 2 Comments

R-267532-1167739177 Released back in 2004 on Fair Park Recordings, this was a tag-team with Grey, who contributed the A-sides Aqua Agogo (featuring Suza Kannon) and Doma.

Hit The Nuco is a remix of my older track Hit The Rhodes off my Echoproject release, featuring fellow NUCO members Stephanie Ivey (vocals), Frank Topp (effects and turntablism), and Clay Roper (saxaphone).

L9house was written early one morning in Reason while waiting to sober up over at Tommy Scott and Clay’s place.

This release was my first on vinyl, and had a limited run of around 2000. I actually had to go down to Illmatic Records and buy a few copies in order to get my hands on this.

Today I’m re-releasing my first solo album “Echoproject”, from way back in the days of 2000-2001. “Echoproject” is a multi-faceted collection of electronic tunes, meandering from ambient chill-out, to wobbly breaks & bass, to loungey four-on-the-floor house.
