DREAMS OF ... BECOMING (2009)

WELL,THIS MIGHT BE HARD..MOST OF THE MUSIC I'VE DONE IN THE LAST YEAR OR SO IS WORKING WITH LOOPS... I PUT THEM TOGETHER LIKE A PUZZLE, JUST LOOPS .. THIS IS MY RPM CHALLENGE CD AND FOR THIS CD I GAVE MY SELF A DOUBLE CHALLENGE OF USING ONLY SO MANY LOOPS..THE FISRT AND THE LAST PIECES WERE THE ONLY ONES OF NOT JUST LOOPS,I USED THE OMNISHERE SYNTH SOFTWARE ON THOSE...ALL THE REST ARE BEAT DRIVEN WITH CUT#3 HAVING A SUBWAY TRACK THAT I RECORDED. LISTEN UP FOR"WHAT MY INDIAN ANCESTOR SAW",THAT'S MY FAVORITE. ANYWAY I HOPE YOU LIKE IT AND THANK YOU

THE WHITE OUT ALBUM:MEDICINE FOR THE INNER MIND & OUTER BODY (2010)

MOST OF THE CD IS MADE OF LOOPS THAT I HAVE BEEN EXPERIMENTING WITH...PLAYING WITH DIFFERENT BEATS .. IN SOME CASES I REALLY DID PLAY ON A FEW PIECES (FOR THE OUTER BODY,JUST TAKING MY TIME & WAKE THE SNAKE.) FOR THE INNER MIND,IT 'S A MIX OF BEATS,LOOPS & SOME TAPED SAMPLES...OVERALL I HAVE TO SAY THIS CAME OUT A LOT DIFFERENT FROM WHAT I DID LAST YEAR... I HOPE YOU LIKE IT AND I HOPE TO HEAR SOME COMMENTS

"IN OUR HANDS" (2011)

Cutting Edge Nonsense (2012)

"THAT FEBRUARY CHALLENGE" (2013)

As always,description? Before I go on,this was made for headphones,please,have good ones! The beginning is a downtempo beat,it could feel like a soundtrack.As it goes on it changes by adding layers on top of each other... a little trance with strings ... we pick up the beat ... a little dark lounge Enigma ... now remember this thing is 40 minutes! Hang in there,some more turns to come. I come back to some touches just to keep it together ... ambient storm,hard rock beat ... back to downtempo/laid back house beat ... club house beat,feel it! Tap your toes from here on in... I love the last 10 minutes ...Enjoy NO ID
