Attar

Attar

The third “drum circle” track. There wasn’t room for this one on the 1200 Music release, but it definitely goes with the others.

Cluster

Cluster

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.

Dragon

Dragon

A slowly-changing old-school jam: 303, 808, 909, 727, and a key loop from a Hammond Auto-Vari 64.

Imipolex G

Imipolex G

Not much to this track but some squirrelly drum loops, a sine-ish bassline, and a high-pass-filter hook. Also, the irony is that I hate Pynchon.

It’s Time for the Perkulator

It’s Time for the Perkulator

A remix of the classic Cajmere track from 1992. This should be my theme song.

The second “drum circle” track, with more of an electro influence and a bit more stripped down.

Another minimal old-fashioned track: 909 and 303s and not much else.

Parataxis (Edit)

Parataxis (Edit)

This is one of a series of tracks I did in 1997 where I just recorded a minimal techno thing for a very long time and figured I’d edit it later. Without the pressure to get the song structure right on the first pass, I was more relaxed and did some decent evolving minimal techno tracks.

Technology

Recorded with Peter Schenk. One of the few recordings I ever got to do with Peter’s Xpander. Though I spent most of the time tweaking the filtery feedback delay patch on the Q2.

Vithwan

Vithwan

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.
