about

This is my very first full length solo electronic album, "The RMX Sessions". It is composed almost entirely on the Yamaha RM1X sample sequencer. In 2004 I realized that I had an enormous amount of finished or nearly finished songs that existed only on my RM1x.

The album is quite spectacular, considering it's all on one box. The blending of various styles of electronic music is close to flawless. The songs are well thought out and deceptively complex, yet entirely accessible.

This is not a candy techno album. While it is true that it is easily accessible to someone with a small electronic music background, hard core fans of electronic music will delight in multiple references to past figures in electronic music.

Songs like "Polypeptide" and "Squash" are examples of the large influence of ambient and IDM greats like Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, and Boards of Canada. Lush melodic hooks with spastic drum breaks opens "Squash" driving you ever forward towards a pulsing of computer generated bleeps and saws. Other songs are more in the vain of classic house and trance. Trancy holds true it name bringing together simple synthesizer riffs and steady kick drum to masterfully present a song full of musical clichés. Deep, deep bass is found on "Smoking glue". This song contains frequencies of bass that translate to systems with a subwoofer with magical thumps. True to the drum and bass feel this song has great drive and rhythms.


Listen to the album.
