Wow...I've not been here in years !

Hello 808ers.. Probably most of you won't even remember me. Markus might. There are a few of my fan mixes on the sounds page from a number of years ago. I also did the 'Sonic Noodle Soup' zine with a Martin Price interview. I also managed to snag an interview with the most bizarre Rik Davis (formerl...

Roge Traders Pacific mashup

Pacific 909 on Tommy Boy...!!!

Ok, so I've not been here in a long while and posted, but when I checked out that the Tommy Boy Pacific single (with 909) went for so much on ebay...I got to thinking about my own copy on CD and how I got it for $1 US at Amoeba records in San Francisco some years ago in a bargain bin. I can't believ...

The sounds page is very very sweet...I don't visit it enough !!

What I would really really love is to work on some kind of unofficial fan remix cdr or something. I think David Bowie did this a few years back and so did Jarre.

Just had a quick gander at 606 in my audio editor. Seems that they've pushed it to just below the 0db limit without digital clipping. A good thing. Otherwise we'd get split second bursts of digital noise that sound harsh. Never a good thing for the ears. However, it is compressed hard. Still, better...

I use a heap of soft synths myself and while some of them are a bit narky on the sound reproduction, I am of the opinion that anything can be a relevant sound source for use in music. Modern mastering processes, for example, in the pop arena focus far too much on over compression and heavy finalisat...

My remix of Pacific State

Hey there everyone. Been a long while since I've posted, but finally got to finish my own remix/re interpretation of Pacific State. It's more like an inspired track than an out and out remix. It is very long...10:06...and old school style. Should anyone wish to have a listen you can find it at the b...

So are you guys ever going to drop down under and give us a gig? I don't think I'll ever get to see you!
And if you ever do decide to drop down this way, I'll be more than happy to accept free tix :wink:

Artists do not owe their fans anything. Creative personalities simply 'create' as they feel fit. The problems begin when art is sold to the highest bidder. That's when it loses integrity. One of the reasons I like 808 is because they seem to have always done their own thing regardless of what others...

Thanks Markus. I try to appeal to a pretty broad range of tastes.
The M Price interview was definitely interesting though. I will also be able to leak Price tidbits out via the zine as well, so stay tuned.
