Music Alert: Distress Call / Beaches of Cantarthys

Orbr’s new double single is out today! Check out the riveting sci-fi horror of Distress Call / Beaches of Cantarthys.

Distress Call sounds the red alert on a distant spaceship, warning the crew of impending encounters with sprawling FM baselines, subzero atmospherics, and a twitchy drum kit.

Beaches of Cantarthys is a tense and dramatic away mission to a land of 909s, manic arpeggiators, and vintage analog creatures both big and small.

Distress Call / Beaches of Cantarthys is available everywhere fine music is sold. You can also hear it on Orbr’s Bandcamp, YouTube, and SoundCloud channels, and of course you can stream or download any Orbr song at orbrsounds.com.

Enjoy!

Music Alert: Orbr – Arcade Racer

My intrepid drum & bass avatar Orbr is at it again! This time tearing up the circuits with the bonkers new single Arcade Racer.

Arcade Racer is a frenzied dive into 80s video game madness, sporting a razor-sharp DX7 bassline, fizzling acid bubbles, crystal clear breaks, and plenty of 8-bit sound FX.

Arcade Racer is available everywhere fine music is sold. You can also hear it on Orbr’s Bandcamp, YouTube, and SoundCloud channels. And of course you can stream or download any Orbr song at orbrsounds.com.

New high score!

Music Alert: Bewitch

Check out Bewitch, the first single from my 2020 album Copse.

The Black Anise Mix of Bewitch doesn’t play any fucking games: pounding polyrhythms, screeching distortion, and reverse FX come at you from all directions at once in this 20-minute journey into horror.

You can stream Bewitch at my Bandcamp and SoundCloud pages.

Happy Spooktober! 👻

Music Alert: Orbr – Peanut Butter Cup

Grab yourself a sweet free download: Orbr’s new single Peanut Butter Cup!

A theremin, some sweet 80s synths, and an acoustic drum kit go trick-or-treating in the wrong neighborhood and wind up toe-to-toe with a gang of chonky basslines and a slew of old-school breaks in this whimsical and manic Halloween tribute.

Don’t forget to check out Orbr’s SoundCloud and YouTube channels. And you can always stream or download any Orbr track from orbrsounds.com.

Happy Spooktober!

Album Alert: The Inventor’s Dilemma Remixes

The Inventor’s Dilemma remix album is live today!

Every song from my 2020 album The Inventor’s Dilemma has been turned inside-out and upside-down by some of the most talented electronic music producers the Twin Cities has to offer.

These remixes run the gamut from hip-hop to old-school techno, from atmospheric horror to tropical house, from synthwave to ambient, and beyond. It’s the whole enchilada!

You can stream or download The Inventor’s Dilemma Remixes on my Bandcamp and SoundCloud pages, and a few excerpts are available on my YouTube channel.

Special thanks to Divider Line and The Creeping Man for their stellar contributions to this project.

Happy first day of fall! 🍁
