In a time where thousands of new tracks come out every day, it is refreshing to see someone approach electronic music from the perspective of a true orchestrator and composer; not many other collaborators send us a manuscript to accompany the remix parts. Props to Kate and her orchestra for their amazing work on the new album. Here’s a remix Seth and I did for the 12″.
Soundview is a group consisting of The Martinez Brothers, Jesse Calosso and myself. Our first record is “The Method”, which is about our jam-session recording process, and is out now on Tuskegee. This record is dedicated to the memory of our friend, the legendary promoter Rob Fernandez, whose immeasurable influence in our city will be felt for years to come. He is the catalyst for this project coming together, introducing us at a gig almost 10 years ago. RIP to the King of NY.
It is with great excitement that I announce this event. Elektron’s machines have inspired me greatly and are some of the most powerful musical tools on the planet, possibly beyond. Plus the lineup is killer. Join us July 23rd in Brooklyn for a Night Of Machines.
It was an amazing trip, starting with a live set in Malta at Liquid Club. Then DJ sets in Berlin at Berghain for The Corner x Deconstruct nacht, and three more dates in three cities with Seth T: Labyrinth in Antwerp, Woodstock in Holland, and Red Zone in Pergugia, Italia. Now it’s time to hunker down in the lab to complete some projects and begin many new ones.
About a year ago at Butcha Sound, we recorded percussion by The Martinez Brothers for the new Chic project with the legend, Nile Rodgers. Out in March is their first single from the new album, “I’ll Be There.” This was made with an outtake from an original Chic Organization session. Hear clips of it, see Chic on Soul Train, and read more about this extremely special project on Nile’s blog:
