new music – hardware series

I have finally completed my series of ten tracks. They are all intentionally club-style techno tracks made in a retro 90s-inspired style, using a collection of hardware (i.e. not on the computer) to see what I could do and what I could learn from the process.

Four of them have been selected to be released by Anode Records (see here and here) based in St. Louis, Missouri which is a great honour. The four track EP will come out some time in the new year.

I'm now working on a set of more refined ambient and / or dubby re-works of these tracks - reprocessing and reusing some of the recorded elements. I expect to get some of those completed in the next two months, studio time allowing. Studio time is quite sporadic due to this being my spare-time hobby, and having a lot of work on at the moment and of course a family who presumably want to see me from time to time 🙂

You can find more of my music on Bandcamp or SoundCloud.

Wax Attak (1997)

Recorded in 1997 this is a DJ mix by Aidy-J (me) and DJ Paper Kut. Rough and ready but charming in places.

Getting toward the end of the old tapes

Here's DJ mixtape of old school party tunes, recorded in (about) 1997:

Pretty pleased with some of the scratching. Well, it's entertaining anyway.

I'm pretty pleased as this was my first attempt at producing a dub techno track.

Electro + Techno mix from May 2000

This mix was recorded in May 2000 in Leeds, on my trusty Technics 1210s. This is 5 years on from the last one posted so the mixing is pretty respectable by this stage.

We start off with some electro tracks from Simulant, Anthony Rother, and UR, then shift into 4-4 techno via Dave Angel's gorgeous remix of Model 500's 'I Wanna Be There'. On the B-side it's more melodic with tracks from (Weatherall side project) Deanne Day and Plaid among others.

Restored from cassette March 2017

V. Early DJ Mix: 1995 – Detroit, Electro, Hip House etc

Another old very old DJ mix recovered from tape. This was done on my belt drive Ariston decks in 1995. The levels are all over the place and there's more dodgy scratching and and ill conceived back-spins! But no happy hardcore this time (you may or may not be pleased to hear).
