First of I think 3 tracks I have to release. Another project has pulled me away from writing for the moment so these may be the last for a little while. Hope you enjoy:
First track of the 2011 album! Slowly getting back into some kind of workflow after the break, so nice to get something completed. This was actually one of those tracks that just wrote itself in a short time (happens now and again).
Generally this year I have a couple of things I want to concentrate on musically.. One is getting more out of my gear. Another is a continuing push (that I don’t think is succeeding yet) to get some more musical ideas out (even if that means a bit of a return to basics with chiptunes or orchestral type things!).. This may happen at the cost of some production values.. but hopefully not too much so..
Also I’ve filled up my space on the new file host (google) so am probably going to be downgrading the mp3 quality to 128kbps… For those of you following the releases the 320kpbs will be up for a week or so, and after that the lower preview quality version. You can always get full quality from bandcamp, or ask me nicely 😉

Another bit of free music just for you. This is just a little tune that fell out of something a bit longer I was writing.
Get it here
Hope you enjoy.
Here is a new track. I nearly held this one back.. it was a little bit ‘damned with faint praise’ elsewhere, but I think it is ok and that only makes me want to try harder anyway. I mentioned before I’ve been distracted from music a bit, maybe it shows in this. I do need to pick up a new direction soon as I’m not satisfied with my output recently. Hmm .. anyway, have a listen..maybe let me know what you think.. more music to come very soon of course. take care.

p.s. I’m letting my hosting die in a few weeks to free up the cash it requires.. I’ll try releasing onto a free host soon instead. There maybe some disruption in download availability.
This is quite a laid back ambient style. It is quite nostalgic I think, and conjures up a very particular feeling for me. It is strange, a lot of people said the last release was quite dark. I had never thought of it that way, so, whatever it means to you, I hope you enjoy the track.
This is a bit of a dark and grungy track.. One of a couple of tracks ready to post now after a particularly productive couple of days (first drought then downpour huh!)…
Recently bought Synplant which is turning out to be a really useful synth for what I do. It features in this track and the next, and along with uTonic is quickly becoming indispensible (much credit to sonic charge)
The vocal synthesizer is aquestone.
