That Ballard novel about the Vorticist condo development

Saturday, July 10th, 2010

I like abstracty sounds because I come from drum n bass. I like to do different sounds – I don’t like the same sounds. I don’t like nothing straight. If it sounds like someone else’s I’m not in it. I’ve got to be different, I have to be different. I’ve got to dress different, have […]

Mix: Mr. Bump live @ Komodo Dubs (MTL)

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

Mr.Bump live at Komodo Dubs, Montreal (Feb 2010) 1 hour session from February, opening for Shackleton and Reza Rekta (Anti Social) alongside the Montreal gang: Komodo, Hosta and Bus.  Straightforward Ableton set here: Spooky garridge, bassline pressure, 8-bar and early, instrumental grime.  Some minor edits.

Sufferation time

Friday, July 13th, 2007

He’s done it again. In absolute contrast to my recent Blogariddims mix, trots out part 3 of his Dubstep Sufferah series. Heavy duty Ableton mashing here in a style that Paul’s been steadily refining over the last year or so. Lots of hand picked CD-Rs on display, along with a persistent faith in the […]
