Hey all,

I mainly write in the style of trance. Ever since I was young I have always been heavily attracted to synths and the sounds they make. From Duran Duran and Human League and on to today's Trance. its fair to say I love synths.

However Trance music is produced to a ridiculously high standard. And its totally studio based. IE you cannot really make it live, nor perform it live without miming or at very least playing previously heavily studio-ed loops and such, you may as well just DJ with CDRs.

So for a change I try and contact my dark side. I write in an experimental drum and bass style and only use hardware and hardly any compression and such. The result is the perfect antidote to trance. Live, spontaneous, raw, rough, warts and all type of music.

If anyone wants to stop by and pay me a visit that would be great. Comments welcomed good or bad but keep it constructive and be prepared to let me hear your work so I know you know what your talking about.

Mind, I must warn you, it seems to be like Marmite. for every 50 that thinks its pure pap, 1 loves it haha. Theres no in between seemingly. So its perhaps very brave of me to put up a few tunes I know no one likes. But then if anyone else does well that's great. Im only to pleased to share my compositions but I warn you its far from mainstream. As said the main reason for these compositions is to unwind from the studio based approach to Trance. And I get this 100%. So all good.

If you like please do subscribe and leave a comment. Also Id love to hear what you do. Not so much talking about mainstream stuff where I can stick the radio on and hear. But stuff that dares to be different that is hard to come by in these days of sheep music sadly.
