I have been using the excellent music distribution service Distrokid for a couple of years. Once in a while they add more stores and streaming services that you can put your music on, but I somehow never seem to find time to actually do that, until a couple of days ago..
Now almost all releases on my label XAKK are or will be available on Amazon, Beats, Deezer, Google Play, iTunes, Rdio, Spotify, Tidal and YouTube.
Check out the next release by Rust and Dust on the Swedish house label HMWL. All three tracks were mixed and mastered by me.
The release date on the major streaming sites has been set for tomorrow friday but I decided to do a sneak release on Soundcloud. So here they are. Rework Vol 1 and 2. Both EPs are made up of previously unreleased tracks from around 1999 to 2003. At the time I wanted to do a third full length album but I somehow never really got around to finish enough good tracks. A while ago I decided to remaster and reproduce some of them, and the result are these two EPs. Enjoy!
My EPs Rework vol 1 and vol 2 will be released friday September 19th on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon, Beats Music, Rdio, Deezer and SoundCloud. Seven previously unreleased tunes, all remade and remastered for 2014.
I did a demo of some of the possibilities using sample & hold on the System-100. This is a bit different from the usual stuff I do nowadays but here you go..
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.
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.
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 Originally made in 2003, but never properly released.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.
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.
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.
