About

Raw. Analogue Techno. Techno flavored Techno. Roland 16-step focused live jammed beats. Guitar pedals, verb tanks, gates, modular patch cables, white noise, urban samples...all mixed to a techno/house grove with attention given to subtle modulations on nearly all parts of the track.
The artistic freedom to settle in, carve out the groove, paint the aesthetic, proceed with artistic integrity and intention, and liberate the music already inside. My hope is only to connect with the people looking for honest, uncompromising art, and inspire them again to see the future as we once did in the past in early Chicago and Detroit. The world is on a temporary detour in terms of commercialized techno and laptop DJ pandemonium. Vinyl...the only phuture vision worth holding on to...the last analogy to Detroit. Computers were never the future...they were always just a 2d facsimile of it. The future was only ever captured in the raw art, the rave innocence, of the modulation of machines, sample pads, and turntables. Peace, Love, Unity and Respect...all while dancing, trusting, dreaming of the future while jacking a bass bin at 5am. It was only ever about the music moving your body. Miles, Mills, Mayday, Atkins, Voorn, Roy Davis Jr., Principle...those are the gentlemen on my mind tonight, as the music finds its way out of the liberated machines. If you want to see for yourself just how we rock the machines, here you go: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kz-Ybf2cTD4
