Here are all of my mixtapes, all in one post. Enjoy!
In 1998 I recorded a song called Jeweler’s Dive. It was one of only a few jazz-inspired drum and bass tracks I made during my loungy, loungy period of the late ’90s. An edited version enjoyed a mini-celebrity on Terminal Beats, a compilation released by indie jungle Chicago outfit Forte Recordings.

Around the year 1997 I graduated from my awkward ’90s electronica phase and started producing truly polished, professional sounding dance music.
Between 1997 and 2004 I recorded tracks for a few national record labels, and even heard a few of my own songs on internet radio stations and once, unbelievably, in a department store!Continue reading
They say that anything worth doing is worth doing badly. This has been 100% true for my efforts in electronic music.

My first exposure to Lone was the refreshing and delightful (if slightly half-baked) Emerald Fantasy Tracks from 2010. Like so many of my electronic albums, I have absolutely no idea how I stumbled upon it. I’m so glad I did. Galaxy Garden, his follow up collaboration with Machinedrum, made it into my top 20 favorite albums of all time. I’ve been a devoted fan ever since.
It was impossible to escape The KLF for a while there in the early ’90s. You couldn’t walk into a nightclub without hearing instantly catchy hits like What Time is Love, 3AM Eternal, Last Train to Transcentral, and (of course) Justified and Ancient featuring Tammy motherfucking Wynette.
