bew update + hammock district

Had a good voyage over to New York - met up with Phil 'Weakling and King' Porter in Dublin on the way, sounds like the new Dry County album is ready for release. The previews I've heard are very good. Find a copy and listen yourself.
The performances in New York were ace. The indoor show at SHARE.dj had a great atmosphere and was an excellent place to start a week of music making. Working with Nicky Keogh and his bin disco and handmade synths again.With everything loaded up on the trollies we got plenty of looks and questions from interrested/inquisitive/nosey/scared people. We made a noisey nuisance of ourselves, and had no trouble whatsoever (apart from lacking axel grease which we solved with a chicken drumstick).In other news, had offers of playing summer festivals, and my first show in Prague. goodtimes TBC.

Also the project I stated with Anne Sophie Cocault in 2005 has a few tracks online. Try out Hammock District. I think I'll make a dedicated myspace soon - the tracks on last.fm are fair demo quality to whet your appetite though.

Back to Fleda for another show, this time as a VJ. I have to confirm if my equipment will work with theirs (should be no problem - but always best to test first!?!). All the same, I'm on their site as part of the party. It's going to be a late one.

The Attic Sessions: BEW

Matt Hazley over at No Clarity is now hosting the last mix I mad for Queen's Radio.
Go there and download it if you like.

New tunes are being crafted at the moment. More breakbeat stuff with a heavy chiptunes flavour.I was teaching Adam some tricks with PC music-making. Fun was had.

We worked step by step through making a sample to adding a beat and bass to various audio warping. I showed him what to do on my machine and he copied on his. I imagine that our end results should be interesting to listen to when we're both finished with our versions of that tune.
