Best of Perkowitz
The songs I consider my best over the years.
909, 808, microwave, and distortion: my standard lineup. This is probably the best example of that style of perkowitz music.
The first of three recordings influenced by the mechanics of drum circles — dense with rhythms built from simple loops. This is the most driving of the three, and one of my favorite recordings.
Another one of those tracks where I did a long recording and figured I’d edit it later. I eventually did edit down from 16+ minutes to the 11:30 or so that appeared on my record on 1200 Music. Cluster is definitely the best example of a certain aspect of my drum machine style — long, slowly changing, and pure rhythm.
Sped up and edited down a bit, this version becomes a little more techno than the original.
A technoed-up version of Yaz’s “Goodbye Seventies”.
I originally recorded this as an instrumental in 2001, but when I started working with John Felthous and RUR, I asked him to come up with vocals for it. I’m not sure what his lyrics are actually about, but they always get stuck in my head.
A remix of the Don Henley song, just spooling out the opening groove that’s so good.
The lyrics were inspired by an especially poetic spam email, and I’m not quite sure what it became.
