Here are all of my mixtapes, all in one post. Enjoy!
Strap in for a long night with my electro-industrial band the Seven Whores of the Apocalypse as we guide you through the abandoned padded cells of Magisterium: a cage of bone-rattling beats wraps its claws around a rubbery analog bass and hushed vocals; a bewildering array of vintage synth arpeggios punctuate the atmosphere before the whole sacramental affair is catapulted to an 80s Berlin disco, where the area clergy finally break down and try on a pair of knee-highs spiked heels just to see what all the fuss is about. Includes a throbbing tech-house dub mix.
Enjoy, and happy Halloween 2021! 🎃
Even though I released Orbr’s debut single Circuit City in June 2020, I was laying the groundwork for Orbr’s true maiden voyage the previous summer.
Orbr is my drum & bass avatar, but the first few songs I recorded under that name were far from the world of jungle. I knew I wanted to lean hard in a sci-fi direction, but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to use house, techno, ambient, or even experimental as the genre vehicle for that work.Continue reading

I’m thrilled to announce that Turquoise Rush, the latest single of my drum & bass project Orbr, is out today!
Turquoise Rush showcases Orbr’s dive into the deeper side of drum and bass. On the horizon: furious vintage breaks, pulsating analogue bass drops, twinkling pads, a breathtaking African choir, and lush underwater FX make for a unique and unforgettable coastal jungle experience. Includes Lazy Couture’s absolutely gorgeous 80s freestyle remix.
Turquoise Rush is available everywhere fine music is sold. You can also hear it on Orbr’s Bandcamp, YouTube, Spotify, and SoundCloud channels, and of course you can stream or download any Orbr song at orbrsounds.com!
I’m thrilled to announce that Drunken Noodles, the latest single of my drum & bass project Orbr, is out today!
On the menu tonight: wavy analog pads, tinkling bells, barely-controlled growlers, chonky kits, world instruments, and space-age FX weave and hustle throughout Orbr’s high-octane summer slammer Drunken Noodles, a dense and complex liquid joint with distinctly international flavorings and more than a few rough edges. Once again Orbr kicks across subgenres and offers the listener a fresher-than-fresh take on the drum & bass experience. Come get a bellyful!
Drunken Noodles is available everywhere fine music is sold. You can also hear it on Orbr’s Bandcamp, YouTube, Spotify, and SoundCloud channels, and of course you can stream or download any Orbr song at orbrsounds.com!
My darkwave band The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse are just pleased as punch to announce our new single, A Poison Mind, out today!
Desires fueled by rot… rabid nightmares… scorpion-filled thoughts… interminable self-loathing… A Poison Mind that desires release. Join the Seven Whores of the Apocalypse as they ride through the black light and exorcise the demons with a fusion of susurrant vocals, vaporous bass, and drums that echo throughout the catacombs.
Orbr’s debut EP Cold Steps invites the listener to experience the minimal techno side of drum & bass. All three songs — Cold Steps, Detroit Horizons, and The Big Rip-Off — occupy a sparse and technical landscape without sacrificing the dimensional depth and innovative production skills that Orbr fans have come to expect.
Surprises hide behind every corner: vintage vocoders, glistening analog pads, jittery 303s, and throwback MC scratches all pay homage to the birthplace of techno while keeping a firm eye on the future of DNB. This one’s for Detroit!
