Came Down The Water Spout

jazz that sounds like being safe inside during a warm spring cloudburst. notes falling like rain. clearing the mind of winter’s detritus to make way for new beginnings.

Hovering Above Unhindered And Shifty

the free flow beats on this mixtape hover just above 150 bpm as the sweet daddy slips and slides between juke, dubstep, breaks, drum’n’bass, idm, and even some sped up trip hop creating jacked up robot rock for future generations to enjoy.

Attack of the Giant Mutant Strawberry Strain

dub is a mutation of reggae and has gone forth and multiplied. these heavy slices of bass, drum & echo are mutations made from the original dub mutant strain by punks, techno geeks, odd pop stars, the illbient crew, metal heads, indie kids, singers & players. partially inspired by the recent re-issue campaign from On-U Sound of some classic Adrian Sherwood productions.

when i started this site in 2010 i also launched a craft (affectionately known as the “satellite of luv”) into outer space to take photographs and record strange and wonderful sounds. we have been monitoring s.o.l.’s journey since, and recently we received a unique bit of audio. it seems the satellite of luv got sucked into a black hole. this is a recording of the event in it’s entirety.

Stereolab Test Record

here is a 20 track / 20 year compendium of Stereolab, easily one of the better bands to emerge from the nineties. they created delightful, smart, decadent, minimal, noisy, experimental pop music with the use of analog synths, organs, guitars, drums, layered vocals, naive melodies, rock minimalism, amazing production, tight playing, a hell of a lot of talent and a healthy amount of non-lexical vocables. take the test, you will be surprised how well you do.

20 Minutes Into The Future

here’s a conceptual mix about the “sound of the 1980s” that has been brewing since the SYNTAX ERA began. it’s that brand new synth sound palette that emerge in the late 70s and dominated the soundscape of the following decade. preset orchestral hits, gated drums, vocoded voices, the cleanest distorted guitar sounds you’ve ever heard, analog crashing into digital; a sound so unmistakably eighties. this is an immersive event so prepare yourself; you may come out the other end with A Flock Of Seagulls haircut wearing shoulder pads craving “new” Coke and scrounging in your pockets for quarters so you can hit the arcade. cue dramatic intro.
