A New Foursome From Joe Bond

Our friend Joe Bond has been very busy in the studio recently, busting out a foursome of new mixes. Each equally smooth and elegant, the rhythms reveal Joe’s focus and flavor. His old-school progressive house roots come through on The Darkness brought to present day with a cutting edge sound. Breathe, our favorite, begs for ... Read More

Exclusive: Joe Bond – Woosa

Since you really dug the last post featuring Joe Bond’s Continental Breakfast, we’re really psyched to present Joe’s follow up effort: Woosa. Yes, that’s right – another exclusive track, with the machines still red hot from it. Tech-house fans will hear lots to like here as Woosa is one of those fresh jams that sets ... Read More

Joe Bond Serves Up Continental Breakfast

I’ve known Joe for over a decade and have seen him rock the crowd endless times, yet he was inconspicuously absent from this blog. Well, we’ll fix that up right now with this slick tech-house jam, still hot from Joe’s oven. Continental Breakfast comes at you like a cool breeze and before you know it ... Read More

Exclusive: Balkan Express

Balkan Express is a 2002 effort with a driving groove which earns it its name. The track has a very clean, unprocessed quality and would probably benefit from either further post-production or just plain old loudness(!), so keep that in mind when listening. High quality wav is once again available.  Enjoy. [Audio clip: view full ... Read More

The Culprit

Wow, I can’t believe this track is already 7 years old.  The Culprit is a loopy, funky techno jam inspired by the sounds of Joey Beltram and DJ CZR.  A few labels nearly picked this one up, but at the time I had no other productions which would make good record companions, so for that ...

Incognito

Incognito is an old housey track.  It was produced in 2002 and almost got released on New York’s Gotham Grooves label shortly after the release of Funk Matter EP (which came up a couple of months ago in this post), but I forget why it never made it out.  The artwork on the left was ... Read More

Open Source

Open Source has that B-side feel.  Coming through are some of my early Goa/Psy-trance influences mixed with the more usual tribal techno vibe.  The spacing of the heavy low-end vs. elements in the higher range works well and leaves enough room for the flyby’s in the middle. This is another track which features a sample ... Read More

Untitled

I’m being perfectly honest when I tell you that I don’t remember when this track was produced or even that it was. I came across it on an old CD of my productions and it was (and remains) unmarked. So here it is, a rare untitled track and I must say that I don’t dislike ... Read More

Far Off Course

Far Off Course is a weird, crossover track from 2001.  It starts out with some broken beats and then morphs into a smooth driving adventure. The focus throughout is on percussion (at the time I came across some weird tube sounding samples that resemble something from the Blue Man Group soundtrack, and I used them ... Read More

Fake House

Fake House is a rare house track of the bunch.  It sort of caught me by surprise and took all of about 4 hours to arrange.  It has a very raw, sample-based vibe which makes it a fun track to play (and play with) in an early or late set. The creamy bass line was played ... Read More
