I went and gave these two D&B tracks a quick new polish:
Pay what you want, as before.
These two were my “Octatrack exercise” tracks where I learned how to use the amazing Elektron device.
I quickly threw the songs out after finishing; I checked their mix/master later on and thought they could be improved.
So, I spent two coffee breaks giving them a new makeup and fixed the frequency balance.
My new album, Valoton Project, is out today, dear friends. I hope you like it.
You can get it from Bandcamp and pay for it what you think it’s worth or get it from / stream on the usual services.
Bandcamp / Spotify / Apple Music / Google Play / Beatport / Tidal / Deezer
I wanted to deviate from my usual stuff (there’s so much of it lined up already, so just wait!) and take a break from the norm.
As a music-maker, I want to be exploring new avenues, as I think that’s best for longevity.
Sometimes you have to travel paths less trodden and go against what others might expect. An artist willing to be in the game for the long run needs to evolve and expand, and this is how. Expect the unexpected.
This album was something I wrote during the darkest winter hours – hence the name, “Valoton”, which is Finnish for Lightless. Musical escapism therapy at its best.
If you find this something you like, please do share it.
“LODGE” album now on Bandcamp.
It’s the tenth anniversary of this album I did with Bill Laswell.
A few vinyl copies of Low Intensity Interval Beats 12″ vinyl now up: http://fanu.bandcamp.com/merch
(PS: If you ordered one via Diggers Factory and haven’t got yours yet, you’ll most definitely get it in a few days, guaranteed)
Also on Soundcloud.
Repaired an SP-12 (new faders, battery, and screen), which wrecked my nerves over a few days. Once I made it all work, I made this beat to celebrate the occasion.
I did the basic loop (drums, bass, main sample) with the SP-12, then tracked it to Ableton Live and mixed and arranged it there.
