It's been awhile since I've posted anything. I relocated to Hawaii and had to leave most of my studio and instruments behind, so I have nothing to make new music with. However, I did discover an old track while un-packing and consolidating my…read more

This is just a bit of silly fun I had one day with a four-track cassette recorder...about 9 years ago (yup...another lost find fro the racks). Just blowin' off some steam on a day off in my little apartment of Tokyo. On first listen-back...it…read more

This track was made for collaborative purposes. Looking for a slow build of layers. If you hear anything that you would like to add...feel free to do so, and send it back to me...or post it and let me know that you did. TANKS!

Okay...so Godzilla comes to YOUR town and wants to get funky. What does it sound like? When I first came to Japan, there was a time when I spent three months homeless and living out of a coin-locker at Shibuya station. Eventually, I got out of…read more

Drum-n-bass composition I did back in 2004 via digital-razor-blade technique with an additional fat synth line. That's it. Hear something you want to add? Go for it!

This track is almost 14 years old, but is the result of me getting an hour or so alone in the KIIS FM studios thanks to my old college buddy Mike Madrigal who was doing production imaging for the station at the time. I did the drum loops (sampled…read more

When I'm in the zone, I dub-out...but sometimes I just gotta blow the cobwebs out by gettin' silly on the drum machine and rippin' on the fret-less. This was one of the latter. It was heavily inspired by the book "Rolling Thunder Speaks"...specifically…read more

This is what happens when I come back to a track that started being put together in a commercial radio station production studio back in about '92/'93 (post liquid-lunch "creative" time). The rhythm loops were layered then the crunch guitar (courtesy…read more

Inspired by the french movie titled "The Element Of Crime." This is basically a night in the studio for some musical therapy via studio jam with myself.

I played with a vocal for this a couple of years ago - will see if I can finish it. Love this groove.

This solo studio dub jam was created and recorded in about 8 hours of play time one day. As usual, it starts with a simple drum machine track, then fretless bass, then keys, guitar, then a Balinese kecak drum and a tbilat drum and finally melodica…read more

I just made a video putting this song to Charlie Chaplin’s speech, “The Great Dictator” It turned out to my liking, so I think I’m changing the title of this tune to “Soldiers In The Name.”

Drop D is producer/bass player Scott A. Meister. I got my start as an audio engineer in high-school, then got involved in pirate radio and radio production, eventually worked up to being an assistant engineer for Bob Ludwig at Masterdisk in New York City in the early 90’s…worked at record labels in promotion and marketing after that…eventually ended up as the regional marketing editor at Album Network Magazine in Los Angeles before moving to Tokyo to start an indies label. After all that…I got burned-out on the music scene, and moved out to Yamanakako, the largest of five lakes on the base of Mt. Fuji where I run a B&B with my wife called The Potato House. Now, I’ve been building a small work studio of digital and analog stuff so I can enjoy making music for myself and my friends.
