luv367 Electro Superstructure no 51

Electro Superstructure no. 51

welcome to Electro Superstructure no. 51. open up your mind and let your ears crawl around inside the complex framework firmly built on a foundation of ancient synths and drum machine clatter. flow freely through the architecture of electronic construction and come out the other end stronger, faster & wiser, but still more human than machine.

luv365 A Burnt God Reboot

A Burnt God Reboot

five years ago i put up a mixtape called Robot Ground Beat comprised of techno music that was so heavily influenced by jazz that, at points, it veered right into it. while putting that mix together i came across an odd strain of downtempo electronic “jazz” deep cuts. here is a mix of the sounds found that day. a weird and wonderful “b side” companion to Robot Ground Beat where techno producers slow down and put some jazz on it.

luv364 - Now Was The Time

Now Was The Time

uneasy sound collage crashing into early sampling politics mixed with unhinged drum machines and unsure funk deep dubs conjured by radio wave riders and post-punk cavemen. Now Was The Time, i hope it’s not too late.

I Am Trumpeter Landfrey

Trumpeter Landfrey’s story is a complicated one as it starts at the end and ends at the beginning. through this collection of late sixties odd pop psyche rock we experience Landfrey’s final days; his memories, regrets, acceptance and death. after which we witness him reborn into a world of new beginnings full of love, loss, darkness, lightness, satisfaction and finally, recognition. all to end up right where we started with Trumpeter Landfrey’s introduction.

luv361 Some Country Station

Some Country Station

near the end of the 1970s i was hauling an 18 wheeler all over the country pretty much non-stop, chasing the almighty dollar. one day, on a lonesome stretch of highway, i was fumbling around on the AM dial and i hit a bump. my hand jerked and fell upon some random country music station. i became transfixed to the radio, lost in music. after almost an hour the station faded out of reception and the radio went silent. rolling down the road in quiet solitude i reminisced on life, death, love, hatred, beauty, fear, fate and where my puzzle piece fits into it all. as best as i can recall, these are the songs the radio played that day, so long ago.
