It's been hard to know where to start with all this to be honest. I've been sitting on these tunes for what seems like 500 years now and it's always been a worry of mine that this shit would just go unheard forever. Some of them date back to when I was 17 years old - the days when I'd run home after sixth form college to pour out all my ideas into my cracked copy of Fruity Loops, others made when I was in my early twenties and on, what felt like the cusp of something decent - quitting my day job and going full time with music.
Being locked down has given me the chance to wade through my old hard drives, CD's, mini discs and cassettes and finally put these three volumes of work together (which, by the way, is only a scratch of the surface.) I've selected only the tunes that still move me, still work, and hopefully even still stand up!
I've sequenced each volume as if it were a proper album - the order of the tracks is always crucial to me and didn't want to just throw out a load of random old crap - I've picked these tunes from unreleased 'albums' I made just for myself and a few mates.
It's weird and varied shit, that's for sure. I was obsessed with Electronica, hip hop, skateboarding and little else to be honest. Musically the influences span from Aphex, Boards Of Canada, Autechre to My Bloody Valentine, Madlib, Plaid and way beyond. I think you can hear those influences here and maybe even a few of my present day signatures in baby-like form..
Thank you so much for your support. Enjoy the mind-dump.
