Throughout this pandemic I’ve watched as many concepts I hold dear have been appropriated and repeatedly distorted until superficial slogans are all that remains. A mantra conceived to hide a behavior that’s in opposition to its content.

This was a tiny exercise in reclimation.

New Year, new EP on Bandcamp.

Four fairly minimal rhythm centric tracks, with heavy analog textures, and more melody than I’ve typically used (at least on tracks 2-4).

Stream or download it for free on Bandcamp.

The beats came easy on these tracks. I’ve gotten to a point where I’m comfortable sequencing rhythms. They’ve become less work and more expression.

Melody and arrangement can be laborious though. I don’t have the tools or the confidence.

That’s going to be my biggest area of focus before next year’s EP.
