it is now my duty to completely drain you

So, I’ve discovered something interesting: the more I blog, the less I get done – less music, less work, less everything. Gathering my thoughts together seems to blow them away in a gust of initial enthusiasm. However, the new Community website will be up soon, and I’m going to be trying pretty hard to contribute to that. It looks mad, I can’t wait for it to drop.

If you don’t follow me on the twitter or the soundcloud, check out a new one here . I’ll be explaining the motivation behind it on Thursday night. What’s that you say? Thursday night? Yes indeed:

shiiiiiiiiit, I’m playing a show. I know, I know, I said that I’d be putting a stop to this sort of thing, but I couldn’t say no to Able, it’s his birthday. Also he gave me a really good slot for a weeknight gig, 9.30-10pm I think. I’ll be debuting some material there, stuff not on the internet anywhere, so if you want to hear it, you’ll have to come along. It’s cheap, plus there’s still time to catch Autechre afterwards.

So yeah, I’ve been fucking busy, actually achieving shit. Looks like Suicide will be ready to go before the end of June, which is ace. Going to be starting that off with a big promo/dj/radio/label spamout, so hit me up if you want a copy. It’ll weigh in at extended EP length – an extended extended player, if you will. Eight tracks so far.

Anyway, back to it.

Wait, no – if you dig heavy dnb, check out this mix by Zardonic on DOA. It’s heavy as fuck, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Starts off with a bit of hardcore, but skip ahead to about 8:45, and things start getting a bit more brisk.

NOW, back to it.

don’t need a host to live

Long time between drinks. I was going so well too.

I tried to post a couple of times, but I’ve been going through a pretty lean creative patch in the last month or so. I’m not sure what is causing it, which is a bit of a worry, because I’m so far behind with beats for people and remixes that it’s getting ridiculous. Tunes are not coming at all and I’ve had very few thoughts worth sharing here. It’s not a lack of interesting events happening in my life either; I’ve been on holiday, had a few interesting career and artistic developments, and some curvy tribulations too. It’s just.. well.. I don’t know really. I do feel a lot better about things after the little holiday though.

One of the positives from the last month was discovering the latest Dillinger Escape Plan album, Option Paralysis. It’s fucking great.

I’m not sure why every says that DEP are exhausting to listen to. I don’t find them any more tiring than other similar bands (although I’m not sure exactly who qualifies as ‘similar to Dillinger Escape Plan’… just go with it). Listening to music this dense is so stimulating in a very tasty way, and I wish there was more of it. The thing I like best about this band is that they can write very catchy pop songs, cover them in razorblade vocals and get away with it.

In music related news, my next release has a home. This pleases me.
