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

Cactus Girl

Posted on | April 13, 2007 | No Comments

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.

Echoproject

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.
