Ampulex Dementor

a swarm of techno buzzin’ around your brainbox while you wig out in the middle of a filthy warehouse space at 10 in the morning. you’re covered with the grime of a whole night of intense partying and are finely attuned to the hive. it’s the beat that connects, and the beat don’t stop. so you don’t stop.

luv397 Well That was Fucked Up

well that was fucked up

“well that was fucked up” sums up 2020 pretty well. things felt uneasy at the end of 2019, like the cracks in the bottom of the basin were getting bigger and bigger, and things were getting heavier and heavier. something was about to give. that’s why i titled the first mixtape of last year “Hold On” because it felt like 2020 was gonna be a rough ride. as i started putting together 2021’s inaugural mix i intentionally chose only new music from 2020 and unintentionally created a mix that represented the crazy year that was. “well that was fucked up” is designed to help exorcise our collective ill feelings from 2020 by grooving them out of our system. clearing our minds and souls to help us better tackle the challenges that lay ahead. may it help you power the future.

luv388 Showing You The Cracks

Showing You The Cracks

techno is a pure dance music designed to take the cacophony of everyday chaos and organize it in just the right manner as to make a dancefloor erupt with timeless uncontrollable grooves. as serious rhythms free flow from the speakers we are witness to the breaking apart of all that we know. the cracks can no longer be hidden.

luv370 Unnatural Mystic

Unnatural Mystic

for a brief moment the fabric of time and space folded in on itself creating an inter-dimensional vortex. it was at that instance the Unnatural Mystic appeared above us, hovering motionless in the sky. as it set it’s gaze upon us we slowly drifted upwards, lifted on layers of rhythms and sounds from the future past. entranced by the journey. lost in space.

Lost Moments In Time

a mixtape from back when we were the new young American primitives. warped junior boys having out-of-body experiences listening to celestial symphonies washed over by an analogue bubblebath. elements of tone attached to states of mind coming straight from the underworld. a d.i.y. rhythm invention ad infinitum. this was the future sound.

luv342 Inside The Alien Machine

Inside The Alien Machine

for almost 15 years now i have been designing nanobots that can record audio and video in very small places. a few months ago the Canadian government contracted me to bring my nanobot technology to a remote place in the Yukon where an alien ship had been discovered. when i arrived they took me to what they suspected was the engine of the craft. it was an odd shaped box, the size of a small suitcase, that was encased in a smooth, hard plastic. there were no lights, displays or buttons and it made no sound. the only way we knew it was was functioning is that it had an almost imperceptible vibration to the touch. it’s only discernible feature was a small port. i was instructed to send one of my nanobots into this port and to record audio and visual of the insides so they could better understand the technology. my little machine traveled for almost 38 minutes into the depths of this alien machine before it was destroyed and the transmission was lost. unfortunately something inside the machine messed with my nanobot’s video capabilities and only a few stills were recorded. luckily the entire audio was recorded and this is what i present to you here today. i was forbidden to share this information but i thought the world needed to hear it.
