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?)

Sounds Like A Cheap Novelette

a futur noir jazz soundtrack that sounds like a cheap novelette; a modern day suspense thriller full of private dicks, shifty dames, cigarettes, street violence, dark alleys, dusky jazz clubs and a shot of whiskey.

Funkapus Wormhole

August 4th, 2013 > hip hop, jazz

a little mix i just composed not so long ago

in preparation for the Jazz Amnesty Sound System‘s appearance at the 18th annual Under Pressure International Graffiti Convention I have composed a set of jazz inspired hip hop, jazzy instrumental beats and heavily sampled funky jazz cuts to better help connect the dots between these two American born forms of musical expression.

baby’s cry into…

dip into luv’s stream of consciousness; where music morphs into dialog that gets swallowed by sound, turns into song and weaves a tall tale about everything and nothing. it’s a trip.

* because some tracks came from LPs without proper info some of the original release dates may be inaccurate. for similar reasons some of the buy links may not go to the exact version of the song that was in this mix, but one of comparable quality by the same artist. please forgive me.
