I’m sure you remember that I was writing two remixes for the british indie band Kill The Young last March. It now appears that there is no room for them on their records but with their kind permission I can put them available for download here for you to enjoy at least.
Also the Monotonik release of my ‘Pixels ep’ has been postponed to a further date but as far as I know it should come out in the late 2009 or early 2010.
Anyway, here are the Kill The Young remixes.

First of all I’m sorry that I haven’t updated this blog much. I guess I can say that I’ve had some sort of production block mainly caused by my absolutely shitty financial situation lately.
However, I was able to finish a couple of disco tracks that I had started months ago. I am currently looking for labels who still are interested in releasing these tracks. I’m also looking for a capable male singer to re-sing the lyrics in both songs for me for more authentic italo disco feel. So if you have tips of one or both, let me know.
In the meantime, enjoy my latest tracks:
Samuel – Baby Girl
This is the night
when we should meet again,
under the disco lights.
The time is right
and everythings' fine
but you're far away out of my sight.
I'm never ever gonna get you
baby girl, I'll always gonna miss you.
I can't never ever forget you,
because this is our night.
Samuel – Heat Of The Night
Feel the heat of the night tonight,
the night is young.
Baby baby, this time we fight,
against the rising light.

This week has been really effective production wise I must admit even myself. Besides having written tracks for the upcoming ep on Monotonik, I’ve been able to come up with these dancefloor tracks as well.
With Trash The Disco I took the idea of electroclash and nu-rave that I had in mind with Ask Why, even further. As a result it turned out to be pretty harsh track but I feel that I succeeded better at how I wanted it to be. Decide for yourself but be warned, this sort of stuff isn’t everyones cup of tea 🙂

Last night I started with another track. I was inspired by some of those Tiga tracks my friend posted in his Facebook profile.
At the same time I had been wanting to experiment with a bit of electro, nu-rave and house and what happened is that I finished with a stompy dancefloor filler using a bit more harsh sounds than I usually use. This version is not actually going to be the final as there are still some bits to polish, but it is the first public version.
This track uses samples from the Texas Instruments Speak & Spell toy.
Samuel – Ask why

It is always fun to make acid. With that I of course mean music mainly made using the Roland TB-303 bassline synth that has been one of the biggest things in the world of electronic music and also seriously inspired me in whatever I have done.
This particular track is about experimenting with multiple different basslines, most of them running on top of each other, maximum of three at a time.
Substance – Acid Reflux

One post without download in between 🙂
This was a project that was already started over an year ago. It’s been nearly three years since I released something on my old friends’ Simon Carless’ internet label Monotonik. My Kuu project has always been for experimenting with more out of the ordinary sounds and ideas, and once again I have finished a new ep to be released exclusively through the label.
As the release date isn’t set yet, I will post the official link with three new tracks and a special edited version of one of those tracks when the time is due. The ep as a whole, will then consist of four tracks for the more experienced electronic enthusiasts.

After writing those trance tracks, I took a step beyond the straight four on four beats and wrote this electro track for my Kocmohabt project. At this point I am not exactly sure whether it’s one of those projects that will come and go, so it might transfer to my Substance project at some day.
This track has a sample from the classic 1976 sci-fi movie Logan’s Run.
Kocmohabt – The Escape
