Dust Devils Of Mars

dust devils are strong, well-formed and relatively long-lived whirlwinds that can get up to 10 meters wide and more than 1000 meters tall, on Earth. On Mars they are up to 50 times wider, 10 times higher and seem to have a life of their own. this is the kind of abstracted hip hop beatscapes they listen to.

Robot Ground Beat

this collection of beats is strictly techno; and even though it highlights the influence jazz has had on many techno producers and contains elements such as random live instrumentation, free form solos, advanced rhythms, smart chord structures and interesting arrangements, we want you to know that this is not jazz (… or is it?)
