27.01.2015 HipHop EP

Working on an instrumental HipHop EP called Odd Hoody. These tunes started out as sketches on iMaschine (the perfect commute-killer) and have slowly built up over the last couple of years. There’s enough material now to put something substantial together, and as Subliminal Logistics is currently on hold for financial reasons, it seemed like a good idea to get it sorted. My son is due in April, so I hope to get this out before then. Not the usual jumpy business, just nodsome lo-fi boog.

Ninjatune/MoWax were major influences at the start of IQ, the first ‘proper’ tunes being simple breaks, acoustic guitar and synth bass recorded on a MT-50. Despite that period dating very quickly, there’s still something inherently satisfying about a crunchy break and chunky bass.

Released via Bandcamp as per usual.

White lies for ears and eyes

It began with a Casio CTK-750, the unquantised techno and electronica making the jump to a Playstation® running Music a few years later. With the PS1, I started sampling crap synths, acoustic guitar and posting tracks on-line. People thought I was a band, and with the PS1 corrupting all the songs, 'Implosion Quintet' seemed suitable. IQ morphed into the ADHD 'genre-slam' material that centred on breaking through all stylistic barriers.

In 2014 I started 'Oddhoody', a full-circle return to the hip hop, dub and electro I began with. OH takes iMaschine sketches (often written on the Oslo underground) and pulls them into a decayed aesthetic. Fat, urban electronics with a hefty nod to the giant dub sound-systems of yore.
