MD/Tape Death Sample Packs…

Hey there, fellow music makers. As you may or may not know, I’m part of a producer label/collective called Tape Death, which consists of Hyphae, Ilz, Megatroid, Zarkov & myself.

Following our remix EP of Zarkov’s work with Jackie Onassis, I’m stoked to release the first of 4 One-Shot Sample Packs, as a prelude to my next internet album, called Des Chansons Sur Les Filles.

These packs contain single note sounds from a variety of solo instruments either played or recorded/sampled by me in my lab, then grouped into 4 categories (Brass, Woodwind, Rhythm Section, & Drums & Percussion).

The Brass sample pack can be downloaded HERE, or by clicking the thumbnail at the top of the post. Thanks to Meg for uploading the goods.

Mic Dons Exclusive…

Hey blog fam, hope all is well.

Today’s offering is from a new project of mine called Mic Dons, which is a collaboration between myself & my brother in debauchery Dunn D. We’ve been performing live for a few months now, & are about half way through our debut release, which is so awesome that it doesn’t have a title yet.

This track is a sneak preview from last night in the lab, called Road to Hell. Fans of good TV should recognise the samples involved.

SoundCloud v2.0, muhfuggers!

Hey people, hope your hustles have been lucrative.

Thought I’d post today regarding my SoundCloud page. Up until today, I’ve been using that page to sell beats to rappers/singers, & it’s been going well – they’ve got a nice clean interface, & apart from the comment pop-ups getting a little annoying on tracks where heaps of people have had their say, it’s a pretty flawless way for people to stream music & allow downloads.

However, I’m looking at moving towards my own website, with pretty much all my content hosted by myself (this blog is a template/trial run of that process), & using Bandcamp & its embed-able widgets to sell my downloadable releases. This will not only simplify thing for myself AND you guys, but it will also lessen the need for me to use SoundCloud as a major part of my web presence (fucking douche-y term that is).

So from now on, my SoundCloud page will be a home for sneak previews of tracks, & odd little rarities for people to listen to & eventually download. There’s currently a few random pieces up there for streaming, so check it out if you get a second.

Pac Fair to the Pines…

Hey folks, hope you’re all getting your thing done. Thought I’d drop a quick line to explain the ‘Now Playing’ image on the left. Every week or so, it will link to a different dope & interesting project that you may not come across in your day-to-day. Basically, I’m lucky enough to know a bunch of homies that make dope & interesting music, & therefore know a lot of other people who are making dope & interesting music etc.

The first one is a collab between Gold Coast gods Syntax & Mules, called Death Stars. Shit is an awesome mix of sci-fi, VHS movie culture & slamming East Coast-style beats. Click the image to peep the goodness (did I mention that it’s FREE as well?).
