Here is my first bootleg remix of the summer. My Deep House summer version of Bibio – Down to the sound. Listen and download before Soundcloud takes it down.

One more banging track from a forthcoming EP

July 9, 2014

Check out this brand new, refurbished version of my old track called Heavy Skitz. This will be part of the second, still unamed EP which will be released in the autumn on 2014.

New track added to my SoundCloud page

June 21, 2014

For a while now I have been working on refurbishing some of my older and previously unreleased tracks. When I’m done I plan to release them as two EPs. One with some Electronica tunes and the other with the more banging Progressive House, Tech House stuff. I have uploaded one of the tunes that will part of the latter EP and it’s called FGP. Some of you that have been following me for 10-15 years may remember it as Future Gene Pool. Originally made in 2003, but never properly released. Anyway.. This is pounding Tech House / Progressive House / Techno. Deep deep bass on this one.

Check it out and don’t forget to listen to my other music on soundcloud.com/knatter.

Download Jnana for free

May 12, 2014

My latest original release Jnana is now free to download on Soundcloud.

Bye bye Ubetoo

March 23, 2014

I’m cancelling my subscription with the music distribution site Ubetoo. The only track I have with them, Jnana, will be added to the excellent service Distrokid instead.

Reasons for ending the deal with Ubetoo are 1: They’re move expensive than it’s worth for me and 2: They fucked up the Beatport release date for my track Jnana. Because of their fuckup it got several weeks delayed and was never shown among the new tracks on Beatport. Consequently it got buried among hundreds of other older tracks.

Mind your matter added to Spotify

March 23, 2014

Mind your matter, one of my biggest trance tunes in terms of who played it (Armin Van Buuren, Markus Schulz etc) and how much it sold on Beatport, is now available for streaming on Spotify again. 2014 remaster! Check it out.

The sounds of the LXR drum synthesizer

February 4, 2014

Sonic Potions LXR

So what does the LXR actually sound like? Too show you, I just recorded some loops that I made last weekend. The sounds on this demo uses a mixture of imported samples (from TR707/808/909) and sounds synthesized live on the LXR. This is a pretty straight forward basic demo with not much manipulation of the sounds. I’ll try to add some more demos in the future with examples of the digital madness you can cram out of this baby.

Check out the LXR on www.sonic-potions.com

Here’s a clip of my latest remix that I did for OLD SQL Records. Available for download on the usual places.

The LXR drum machine is fully assembled and working

January 24, 2014

This DIY project has been laying around in pieces in my studio since I bought it a couple of months ago from Sonic Potions. Around christmas I decided to pick up the soldering iron and today it was finally finished.

I’m happy to report that it works as promised. I will be making some loops and play around with it this weekend. Happy days! :)

Working on a new album

November 24, 2013

I noticed I haven’t been writing anything on my web site for a while, so here goes. Lately I’ve been doing a lot of music on my new Elektron Monomachine and soon I will probably have enough tracks to actually release my third full length album. So why this sudden burst of creativity? Well, it’s probably because of the workflow of the Monomachine. I find that it’s much much easier for me to record my ideas when I get a burst of inspiration. Making music with Ableton Live on a computer is not particularly difficult but it still takes longer time to convert the ideas to sounds and music. On the Monomachine I can go from scratch – no sounds and no music, to an almost complete track in a matter of hours. I also like the sound machines on the Monomachine. It’s easy to create stuff that sounds good. I really like this box.
And I also bought a X0xb0x for the studio. It’s a TB-303 clone. Expect more acid-like basses in my music in the future.
