Underdog Goes East


Leonard Part Sixx, the man responsible for the legendary Underdog Edits Series, will be in NYC on Friday and Philadelphia on Saturday. If you're not familiar with his work, you can hear his recent Razor N Tape release and an amazing 3 hour DJ set below, or find some highlights from his 14 volume vinyl series on Youtube. There's also a good interview with him at The Standard.



TLDR: Underdog Edits are amazing. Do not sleep on this!

RIP Soundcloud Groups

Most of them were pure spam, but I'm proud of the DBJ group. I even discovered a few new producers and found some tracks to play out through it. Anyway, now is your last chance to take a look - Soundcloud groups are being removed on August 22nd.

Celebrate 8/08


Decided to put together a little treat for my fellow gear enthusiast/producer types. It's samples of all my TR-808's drum voices as well as 30 sample patterns ranging from 80bpm all the way up to 130-something. Some dry, some with effects, some busy, some simple. Classic electro rap beats, Italo, janky wind-tunnel techno, WBMX-style house, etc. Anybody can use these patterns for whatever they want, no credit necessary.
Download the samples here.
