Too Hard Basket

13 tracks, 1.09.48 Whitt's Solo Stuff on February 05, 2012 06:45

This is a live electronic set recorded on 16th June 2001 on a Yamaha SU-700 Phrase Sampler. Only 200 copies were burnt and handed out to friends, for the last 10 years its been sitting on my hard drive so Im happy I can put it out there and share it will all of YOU. Please feel free to comment and let me know if you want to use it, re-use it, remix it or whatever.
Nothing was sequenced, each track was essentially just me jamming with the sampler and the result is a warts and all 78 minute set of 13 instrumental tracks beginning with break beat influences progressing through to house and techno and finishing with a couple of drum & bass tracks.
In the near future Ill be putting up the individual samples for anyone to re-use or remix..
If I had to pick a favourite track it would have to be track #12 "Better Call Saul!" which features samples of Kram playing Bass and Drums and myself on guitar.
Everything else is my original work.

Below is a review that appeared in Australian Rolling Stone Magazine by Chris Johnson

WHITT
TOO HARD BASKET
Self -Released
"Spiderbait man gone techno"
Spiderbait always had a great affinity with techno and DJ-music. Kram, the drummer, barely stopped between songs; instead he'd shift the beat and on and on they'd go. Like DJ's do. Change rhythms without appearing to, mixing on and on toward infinity. You could just tell somehow that they listened to a lot of Chemical Brothers. Spiderbait's guitar player Whitt turns in a side project live set of techno here, recorded at home in Melbourne on a Sampler and computer. Techno, acid-techno and breaks, really. A set that would rock any decent bush rave. Low-fi, but very well structured, the album features a co-write with Kram, "Wally Funk", a hint of the next Spiderbait album, already titled The Flight of Wally Funk.
Rating: 3/5 stars.
