Why Should I Care? EP
Aptly named ‘Why Should I Care?’ I have decided to not let myself be tied down by the ‘rules’ of producing mainstream electronic music, I am letting experimentation lead the way and out of it I am hoping for new original tracks for you to listen to.
Work has now finished on the EP and it has been sent for worldwide digital distribution. Release date Tuesday 3 December 2019.
- His Indoors (So Good for You)
- Masters of Our Fate
- Out of the Radar (demo)
- Lonely (Let Me In)
Track 1 features samples and excerpts from the song ‘I Should be So Good For You’ performed by Dennis Waterman and the TV Show Minder theme tunes.
Track 2 features samples taken from ‘Puppets’ performed by Depeche Mode. Also features part of a speech Winston Churchill gave in New York 1941. Winston makes it too easy for me. Also features excerpts from Namco racing games Ridge Racer Revolution and Rage Racer.
*Interesting or boring fact that inadvertently link track 1 & 2 together is that Arthur Daley (from Minder) was a big admirer of Winston Churchill.
Track 4 features samples taken from ‘Love Song’ by Simple Minds and ‘Lonely in your Nightmare’ by Duran Duran.
I am planning to release a single off the back of this EP therefore will be making my next music video also. The theme is dances used in the video game ‘Fortnite’ so I am holding a submissions competition, if you can do a Fortnite dance then send me an email with a link to a fileshare, a file or a YouTube/Social Media video to firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries to be in by end of November. Single planned to be released by early 2020.

So Few.. LP
Inspired (yet again) by Winston Churchill, the title for my next LP has been a bit of a head scratcher. I haven’t finalised a ‘theme’ for this new album, I am literally throwing trax together and seeing how they pan out. I am finding this more experimental approach is opening up more ideas and not limiting me into what I want to do as in the past I have ‘boxed’ myself into corners before and found it difficult to get out and either ‘made do’ or completely abandoned the project. This way I am finding more fun and exciting. Working with samples, especially recycling from other songs faces bigger challenges than I originally thought, but this then brings bigger rewards when you get it right.
Since my inspiration and general musical interest is so varied I have tried to not tie myself to any particular style, like before but inevitably it does all come back to the same thing….it is electronic music and no matter what you do it will always have a house theme, trance theme, drum and bass theme, techno theme or even just general dance.
