Arriving after the Second Summer of Love, Ambient House/Techno grew as an offshoot of Acid House, and was usually played in the chill out rooms of all night dance clubs, or at home with headphones. It developed during the 90s in the UK, alongside rave music, jungle and many other genres, and many artists incorporated […]
Acid House is one of the first types of electronic music I listened to, along with a lot of the music that was coming out of England in the early to mid-90s. Acid House may have exposed a distinct youth/party culture ready for new music, and new drugs, or the experience itself created many new […]
Techno is one of the most popular genres of dance music, and has been around so long it’s unlikely that your average listener would share the same touchstones in conversation. It can be considered unapproachable and repetitive, shrill or harsh and listened to while flailing around dark rooms with strobe lights. Which isn’t wrong, but […]
I recently created a Soundcloud account for my songs, check it out!
This post is dedicated to the records that got away, ones I saw and did not buy due to being foolish and miserly. Life is short, and in many cases there are a finite amount of records left, so you should not feel conflicted about spending the money, even if it is difficult to justify. […]

Steely Dan is one of the reasons that I got into records, and after buying these records I want to buy a better record player to get as much out of these records as I can. The quality can’t compare to perfect digital versions, but with this band and its obsessive attention to the sound […]
After having little success finding dance tracks in record stores, I decided to grab a bunch on Discogs, finding this entire collection for about $25. I was happy to have about 20 minutes worth of dance tracks, and ones that audiences would recognize and have broad appeal. If I had to produce a bunch of […]
