Infection by ZX81

One of my fav tracks - kinda sharp but melodic at the same time. 150 Beats per minute. Enjoy :)
5:22 minutes (10.28 MB)

Old man by ZX81

A slower one (well still 150bpm) starts with a zb talkback snippet of some old guy complaining about the cricket

Slow start by ZX81

This one is normally at the beginning of my set so that I have a bit of time to set up my live gear before I get started.
8:59 minutes (18.05 MB)

Talk to me by ZX81

This is another of my favourites - again 150bpm (surprise surprise). This one was written in Hindon (middle of nowhere in central Otago). Basically I took my studio out there and set up with everything I needed to be left alone for a couple of weeks - best way to make music!

Restart by ZX81

This was the first song of my set for new year's.  It's unmastered as I was running mastering live in Ableton Live.

It was actually written pretty late in the buildup as it was written as a replacement for a song I couldn't get going.

NewBass by ZX81

This one is an understated 150bpm - I mean all of them are around 150, but this seems slower - probably 'cos it effectively starts off at 75bpm :)

NewSite by ZX81

This song builds up quite a bit more - not sure that I actually like this one as much as NewBass, but it played well.

DR Start by ZX81

This is kinda interesting, most of the beginning of this song was actually obscured by the mix, so even if you were at my set you would have missed this one.  My favourite thing about this song is probably the reverse bass which has different reverse attack times and of course the texture created. :)

Noise by ZX81

Heh, called noise 'cos it starts with me playing around with the noise generators in the thor instrument.  This one really went off, it gets pretty intense but people enjoyed it :)

Map by ZX81

This was the first song written using a new method (which I ended up carrying throughout the set) of mapping out a song with the time set then filling in the detail - it was a strange way to work, not sure I'm 100% keen on it - but will see.  This is actually my favourite song - I wasn't sure I'd be able to play it because I thought it might be a bit cheesy after the breakdown, but it was fine - there were songs that were a hell of a lot cheesier! :)
