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.

luv303 Drop Acid Not Bombs

Drop Acid Not Bombs

in 1982 a simple bass synthesizer with built-in sequencer called the Roland TB-303 Bass Line was released to the public. initially marketed to guitarists as bass line accompaniment for solo practice only 10,000 units were manufactured. in the mid to late 80s a new wave of pioneering dance music producers discovered that by stressing and finessing the 303 a new world of groovy sound was opened up to them; resulting in the creation of acid house and the future of dance music. this is acid.

Sideways Glances

this is how i do. heavy mixing various styles of electronic music on 3 turntables to create a continuous flow that seems organic in its movements, smooth in its transitions, groovy as hell with a healthy dose of inner space psychedelics and moments of sheer beauty. on a good day i can create a living entity out of music. this was a good day.
