Happy to announce this 7-track EP with Betamorph. You can check it out at Beatport plus the Betamorph site has a review. These tracks were produced between 2007-2009 in various places. Note: HONKY and SOLID being of “Volume 1″ (so-to-speak) were summed analog on a Neve 8816 plus native A/D. The others are through my current config of a Dangerous 2-Bus to Lavry AD10. ATLANTIS and TIGER were produced in my old studio on South 5th and the rest at 3rd Ward. I like the latter config better but the Neve suits the early sound. I master in Peak with only some limiting and no compression.
This is a record I worked on with Robin Danar back in 2008. It’s called Altered States and you can read about it here on the Shanachie website. Guest artists included Paul Buchanan, Pete Yorn, Kinky, Minibar, Rachael Yamagata, Jesca Hoop, and Lisa Loeb. There’s also an L.A. Times article here and you can buy the album on iTunes here. Our track is called “Fool” (feat. Andy Levin and Holly Palmer).
The song is written (even though the content of AS is mainly covers) by Andy (lyric/mel) and myself (music/arr). It was a demo from years before that I thought was long dead to be honest; Andy met RD somehow, played him the song, and he loved it. I immediately wrangled stems via a Macintosh PPC 6500 with (lol) Studio Vision. I could not throw out that computer because that glorified jump drive (3GB!) cost a lot in 1997. That’s me singing back-ups as Scatman Ruffin via Fat Albert. Originally recorded in 2002.
The “design concept” was obvious; 4 players, 4 basic colors. Soundbite explanation: Saul Bass/Blue Note redo with geometric cut-up Zen-chancery.
(This press release just out.)

DCO brings classic tracks along with new, never heard before riddims to this party. They also lace the room with extra subwoofers for added low-end fidelity and trippy lighting for a complete experience.
