Album up on YouTube

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

I’ve finally got around to putting the whole of Chronicles up on YouTube. Enjoy!

Today is album launch day!

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Hey everyone! I’m very excited to announce that today is the day my album “Chronicles” officially comes out on Echodub!

If you’re wondering where you can get it from, here’s a few places:

Beatport | iTunes (UK) | iTunes (US) | digital-tunes | Juno | Boomkat | Drum n Bass Arena | Zero” | Addictech

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the people who believed in me and encouraged me as it came along: Katy (endless love and support through my ups and downs), Guy aka. Cogidubnus (enthusiasm and support from day one, as well as a beautiful remix), Alex aka. DFRNT (encouragement and perpetual cool-headedness), all the Echodub crew (I love being a part of our collective), Nate aka. DJ HARP (a wicked remix and support from accross the pond), Theo aka. Thesis (awesome remix), Bob Macc (amazing mastering, mixdown help and general email banter), AMPFEA Music Bar crew, Rachel and Josh, Clare and James, Kamal and Juliet, Aled and Kate, Becca, Benny (gone but never forgotten), friends old and new, mum, and last but not least little Maisy, who distracts me at inopportune moments and reminds me to muck around and play more!

Thank you all for being you – it has made it that bit easier to be me!

New tune: Laws Of Nature

Sunday, August 2nd, 2009

Laws Of Nature MP3 cover

Everything has gone a bit hectic here – we’re moving house in a few weeks, and our little one has just this week started crawling!

Anyway, here’s the first new tune in a few months. This one has been in the works for some time (delayed by house move stuff, mostly), and is intended to form part of my upcoming release on Echodub, due out sometime in the Autumn.

I guess “Laws Of Nature” is all about our own existence really – that many of us have come to see ourselves as somehow separate to “nature”, and that we think ideas like “conservation of nature” are the reserve of special interest groups, rather than about the preservation of that which literally allows us to live.

I’ve felt for a very long time now that we humans desperately need to recognise our place (and important role to play) within what we call “nature” and “ecosystems”. We are not outside of it – we belong to it as an integral part, and if we don’t take much better care of our home, we are basically finished.

I have a lot of faith that a radically different type of world is something we will, in time, manage to pull together and achieve – for the good of everybody. I hope I’ll be there to enjoy it, too!

Anyway, while watching a documentary about something-or-other, I found a great speech sample for this track, which happens to be bang in-line with my own philosophy on the matter – so that’s where the idea for this track came from.

As always, you can hear a full preview of it in the webplayer, on the Muteqx MySpace page, on Soundcloud, or you can download a medium quality MP3 for offline listening.

New tune: My Psychosis

My Psychosis MP3 cover

A new month, a new tune!

“My Psychosis” is another introspective deep roller, combining serious low end, synths on sedatives and a liberal smattering of dub tomfoolery. I think it sits alongside Chronicles pretty nicely.

As usual, you can hear a full preview of it in the webplayer, on the Muteqx MySpace page, or you can download a medium quality MP3 for offline listening.

Funny how things happen sometimes – I’ve been working on several other tunes for a few weeks, and then this one came along and was written from start to finish in just over a day. I guess I just can’t help myself when it comes to working on new ideas while they’re still fresh!

All that remains for me to say is a huge thanks to those who heard the preview mix and chipped in with their suggestions – big up Katy, Cogidubnus and DFRNT, all of you, for helping me polish this one off nicely.

Cogidubnus – “Wheels” mix

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

ufoI’ve been really enjoying the Cogidubnus mixes of late, so thought it was time I gave them a mention here. Obviously some part of this is because he has been including my tracks in them, but overall, I still think they are at the most interesting end of the mixes that have been appearing on DubstepForum recently.

In fact, ironically, my favourite of his mixes so far doesn’t feature any of my tracks – check out the Voigt-Kampff mix here. No “aggro caveman step” for miles around – just deep tunes all the way through.

His latest “Wheels” mix features my “Chronicles” track. As I’ve come to expect by now from Cogidubnus, it’s a deep mix that takes you on a carefully planned journey through the mellower end of the dubstep spectrum. It’s well worth a download and listen from here.

Track listing:

Kaya Project – Hirajoshi
High Contrast – The Ghost of Jungle Past (Intro)
Subjazz – The Bigger the Woofer
16Bit – President of Europe
wAgAwAgA – Nagoya
FSTZ – Troostwood Blues
Orien – Broken Dreams
Joshua Black – Life
Silkie & Harry Craze – French Knickers
Mob Barley – Me I Am
Portishead – Western Eyes (The Widdler remix)
Tangka – Diamond Mine
Muteqx – Chronicles
Forensics – Exile (Phaeleh remix)
DLX – Matter of Fact (Breakage’s relatively speaking remix)
FSTZ – Tales of the I-Them
Synkro – Just to See Her
FBOM – Distance
Quantum Soul – Long Time (Ruckspin remix)
Liquid Stranger – Behind Your Ear
Boards of Canada – Constants are Changing
Future Sound of London – Newfoundland
