Placid Abstraction is now available on electronicscene.com.
:: Monday, December 29, 2003 ::
Here's what Raw42 says about it:
Minimally funky intro slides into slow tempo floating pads and carries on in same vein throughout.

Tried to fence tonight. No foilists, however. Bummer. Plenty of sabre fencers and epeeists - but, alas, no foilists...

Illumined Pleasures is now available on electronicscene.
:: Thursday, December 25, 2003 ::
Here's what Raw42 says about it:
Jazzy, swinging free-form IDM. Quirky little blips and bleeps with lightly funky deep bass and fusion-styled beats.
:: DJ 10:27 AM [+] ::
Added Bansuri Summer Sturm und Drang to my electronicscene site.
Here's what Raw42 says about the song:
A low-key blippy scientific illbient affair with unusual sounds and plodding underlying percussion combined with eerie/avant-garde effects and synth lines. Subtle, unusual, somewhat experimental.

Actually had enough time tonight to work on a mailing. Sending the demo out to a couple of more stations and sites for reviews. Fun stuff. Go to do that every week, otherwise nothing will happen. Activity breeds results.

Apparently there were some technical difficulties with the show on Friday, so I'm reburning a CD for the The Mix and will see how it goes this time...

Way too busy to post this weekend.
:: Thursday, December 11, 2003 ::
Saw Blue Man Friday night. Last time I saw them was 5 years ago. Was awesome. Went out for Ethiopian food afterwards. Fun stuff.
Saturday, I had a charity event, family obligations then ran errands. Busy all day.
Spent the whole day with friends today. This is my first time at the computer today.
Time to catch up on email.

Here's what Raw42 has to say about this experimental breakbeat song:
A breakbeat frenzy with lots of different breaks combined with various jazz elements, particularly lots of rhodes melodies, tinging bells and some sax hits. A bizarre experimental number, but still engaging.
:: DJ 5:42 AM [+] ::
Grandpa Ralph is now available on electronicscene.
:: Wednesday, December 03, 2003 ::
Here's how Raw42 describes the song:
Abstract breakbeat sequences combine with smooth chord structures and light airy percussion - experimental drum n' bass.
:: DJ 5:37 AM [+] ::
I'm doing an online radio show for The Mix featuring electronic music on Friday 12/12 from 9 PM to Midnight Pacific Standard Time.
If you are interested in having your music played, email me. There are no royalties, but I'll be giving band names, song names and URLs for every song played, so it will be some decent exposure for you if I use your song.

Temporary holding from mp3.com until I clean it up...
Review of 'Brevity' at http://djsky.pngusa.net/dreamdaze.html: "This track has a gorgeous atmosphere, laid back beats accompany a collection of interesting and well picked sounds which deliver an enjoyable sonic experience. At no time does anything seem out of place which is a testament to the arrangement skills on display. All I would criticise is the overall production, just a bit of work to tighten up the sound and this one would be in my collection. Overall a very well put together example of ambience. 9/10."
Review of several tracks at http://www.randomartist.com/reviews.php?id=403: "DREAMDAZE combines a lot of diverse organic elements into the mix. Brevity, for example, sounds mostly live with some great ambient samples mixed against tribal beats. Face, scratches and brushes around a walking keyboard bass in a most unusual way adding in some nice textured pads. Good sound track material, that. Anthracite is probably my favorite track. Nice use of bass and drum loops balanced with cool breaks. For electronica that continues to suprise and please, I recommend sampling DREAMDAZE's entire playlist."
