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! 🍁

Time for another Orbr single!

Say hello to the stripped down funk aesthetic of So Incognito, a love letter to Reprazent’s jungle jazz opus New Forms.
