Assignment 9.2 (Jazz Guitar)

I apologize for the lack of updates in recent weeks. Work has been out of control and lots of things are happening on the side as well. But I expect to back on track very soon. In the meantime, here’s a relaxing jam which was recorded during my Jazz course at Berklee, taught by the ... Read More

Exclusive: Blasted

Its time for another exclusive! Blasted is a hard track with all of the ingredients I like in my techno.  Groovy kicks, crispy hats, dark metalic samples and vocal stabs.  If you remember the track Dirty Yellow (covered here a few weeks ago) the shuffled hi-hat should sound familiar, very likely since its was sampled ...

Handcuffs and Raspberries

Not sure what I can say about this one. Its a weird, barely finished concoction from ’03. Aside from mangled beats it also features a few samples from John Cage’s Prepared Piano. The plan was to put those to better use at some point, but that still hasn’t happened. If the title makes no sense ... Read More

Ego Programme

Ego Programme is an experimental track from ’04. It combines IDM and Drum n’ Bass elements into a complex and trippy arrangement which stands alone in the Montaz/Biotic catalog. Inspired by the sound of Squarepusher and Funckarma/Quench, the track features a variety of mangled beat chunks and even some orchestral elements, played using a (since ... Read More

Overtone

This just might be the biggest Dopevector release yet(!), and I’m thrilled to make it available in source format.  Overtone is a remix of a track by the same name, but since I like it so much better than the original, it basically won over the title.  The track was scheduled for release on the ...

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 ...

Triage

Triage is a techno track from ’04.  If my memory serves me right, the bass line was played using the sweet Imposcar synth.  And since I’m a little short on time today, I’m going to leave it at that.  Wave download is included.  Enjoy. Download: Triage (mp3) Download: Triage (wav)... Read More

Exclusive: Kill By Inches – Stylin’ (Live)

We’re going all the way back to 1997, to Electric Plant Studios somewhere deep in Brooklyn for a live Kill By Inches session with Shane and Tommy on vocals. Joining the two were Kevin Oriol on bass, Steve Papa on drums and Alex Kolundzija on guitar, with Vin Cin producing the mix. Stylin’ was a unique ... Read More

Sativa

I’ve always loved the unique sound and versatility of the ride cymbal. Its distinct sound can be disguised and blended into a variety of genres while remaining very common and bare. I bring this up because Sativa is a track based on a sampled beat with a driving ride cymbal which marked a new direction ... Read More

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
