The Collapsable Universe

the 1970′s were electric. synthesizers had crept into daily life, titillating eardrums with sounds from the future. in this environment, jammed full of new technologies, jazz mutated into elaborate soundscapes with layers and textures and grooves.

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?)
