Comments on Drop D's stuff

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

I invented the piano key necktie! I invented it!

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

YES! This is great! I love it!

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.”

This tune hopefully shows the culmination of my musical influences (namely, Mick Karn (R.I.P.), Adrian Sherwood, Bill Laswell, Jah Wobble...) while also painting a visual picture...as it was written and recorded in one day after I went free-diving…read more

I may have to work around inside this one a bit…

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

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

I’m curious if anyone can name any of the bands that were sampled to create the rhythm loop. It’s quite a mashup. Hint…it’s all late 80’s/Early 90’s alternative stuff.

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!

A little drum n bass in ya face. I really like this chune.

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

Love the bassine in this one D. I released a new dubstep jam i would like for you to hear.

This tune was written on the day I bought my vintage Yamaha CP-25 electric piano and returned to hear that Dennis Hopper had passed away. I fired up the gear and cranked this out. The sound of the piano made me feel like Ray Manzarek...thus the…read more

Nice! Missed this one of yours

This has a Real Urban Feel! Superb work fitting all those separate riffs in into this!

Reminds me of the old Arcade Cabinets I used to play growing up.

I’ll definitely be adding something to this (unless you suddenly withdraw your offer!). I have quite a secret Drop D project file on the go at the moment.
(Already faved this as Elusive Gene…and soooo downloaded.)

This cut was made right after operation Shock and Awe started. I wanted to try and capture the feel of being an innocent civilian caught in the middle of it with helicopters flying around...gun-fire swirling around, etc. It's particularly a tribute…read more

I liked “Standing Space” Too. But for me “Shock and Awe” was an infectous groove
