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: 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! 🍁

Music Alert: Orbr – Space Ghosts!

Space Ghosts brings skittery beats, sci-fi bleeps, and haunted FX to create a stripped-down neuro nightmare from the future.

Space Ghosts 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 download any Orbr song at orbrsounds.com.

Enjoy!

Music Alert: Orbr – Fireflies

Orbr’s back with another new song, this one giving liquid funk a run for its money.

Inspiration for this song ran the gamut, from the old-school rave classics of Altern-8 to the seemingly endless futuristic slammers by Total Science.

Fireflies 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: 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.)
