2011 Sampler – January Update

This months marks the beginning of a monthly set I will be updating to reflect the works I have either in process or already finished. It will cover everything from downtempo to house and even previews of remixes (pending approval from parties involved).
For January I have a large number of down tempo styled songs with heaps of texture and chill sounds. Thus far, these unsigned tracks are compiled into a set that may end up as an LP indie-released project (I’ll float it to some labels, but if nobody bites it will go indie).

I also re-visited my lust for house music but with a fresh set of ears and a new approach. The result was Pike, Contours, and Clichy, 2 AM. These three songs have had some great responses from fans and peers and I have some big news regarding their future that will be announced soon!

My good friend and co-conspirator in Silver Standard, Jeff Surek, has been working on his own chops for music. He’s been doing his own thing on a semi-regular blog.  His first step into a more danceable category rang well with me and I offered up a chill remix of his track “No, You“.  I’m happy with the song but it needs some work on the mix/EQ.  The release of that track is entirely dependant on what Mr. JSurek wants to do with it, so you’ll just have to sit tight before you can hear the full version.

Good times!
