Music Alert: Orbr – So Incognito

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.

This time we head back to the ’60s for a brush with danger. Is she a spy? An agent provocateur? A double agent? Whatever she is, she’s in a hurry!

So Incognito is available everywhere fine music is sold. You can also hear it on my Bandcamp, YouTube, and SoundCloud channels.

And of course you can stream or purchase any Orbr song at orbrsounds.com.

Enjoy!

Music Alert: Oak St Bluesman EP (Remastered)

In 1998 I had the insanely exciting opportunity to get signed to an independent record label in San Francisco. The label, Cosmic Flux Musiq, released a handful of my songs before closing up shop a few years later.

I remastered some of those old songs, starting with the Oak St Bluesman EP from 2000. Here are those remastered tracks. I hope you enjoy! (Also see the Jeweler’s Dive remasters.)

It’s early summer, the perfect time of year for melodic drum & bass!

As always, there’s a bit of a history lesson. Liquid funk came of age around 2004, but the birth cries could be heard as far back as the early ’90s, with the dawn of drum & bass itself.
