“Sumthin’ Wikked Tis Way Comes”

Posted in Uncategorized on October 27, 2010 by Anodyne

If you’re still trying to decide what to do for Halloween come out to Lupin Lodge in Los Gatos!!  I’ll be throwing down DnB and other assorted bass heavy monstrosities from 11pm-midnight.

Go HERE for more information on the party

If you’re missing the show (shame on you) or aren’t in the area, don’t worry!  I’ll be recording the set and releasing it for this month’s “Countermeasures” episode.

 

Next month we’ll return to our regularly scheduled broadcast of Countermeasures.  Less “RAAAAAWR!!” and more “hmmm”.   Maybe even a sneak peak of the new EP…

Recommended Listening!

Personally when I look for new music I start with breaks and go from there.  What can I say, I like my beats broken.  Lately I’ve been on a huge DnB kick and I’ve been neglecting the slower 120-140 bpm range…  So a couple of weeks ago I get an email from Gyre letting me know his new album, “Attack of the Sustained Decay” just dropped!!  Naturally I was excited and headed over to have a listen because this guy just oozes talent and fresh ideas.

I first discovered of Gyre when he released “EP 2.0” last year.  That was a pretty damn good bunch of tracks.  This year, “Attack of the Sustained Decay” bumps things up a notch and seriously delivers.

Remember that feeling you got back in the day when you just discovered electronic music like 808 State, The Orb, Future Sound of London, Chemical Brothers etc.  They may have been making totally different styles of music but they embodied a feeling and excitement of breaking new musical ground.

That’s how this album made me feel.  The first single, “Attuned To Another” is just GOOD electronic music.  It’s that simple.  Just solid electronic music from the second you hit play.  The rest of the album doesn’t dissapoint and follows suit.  Breakbeats may not be new to the scene, but Gyre works them incredibly well and infuses them with his style.  Trust me, this release will smack your midrange wobble-step around the room and make it cry like a baby.

Convinced yet?  Here’s the linkage:

As promised, here’s the latest episode of countermeasures!  I recorded my live set from the Pure Evil show and just trimmed out the minute or two of silence in the middle where we had some technical difficulties.  Buckle up, this one gets heavy…

“The Combat Singles” got your attention, “From the Depths” set your anticipation on a slow boil and the EP is rolling along in the studio full-steam-ahead!!  I know it’s still a couple months of waiting until the release… so with the help of my awesome girlfriend I’ve pulled together some resources and have a little something to help pass the time.

Alright you subfreq-vultures!  Get your Anodyne Industries Stickers now!  We’ve printed off a limited run of these suckers and don’t expect them to last long.  If you’re at one of my shows or see me on the street I’ll have these on me so feel free to ask for one.  Or two!  For those of you who don’t live around here I can still hook you up.  Just send me an email with your address and I’ll send them to you.

Of course, if you’re serious about the Anodyne Industries project and want to start your own local platoon of the Anti-Apathy Sonic Warfare Army we can work out a way for me to send you a “street team” pack of stickers (for a very small fee).  Just let me know!

Upcoming Shows!!

Posted in Announcements, Events on October 1, 2010 by Anodyne

After taking a year off Anodyne Industries is back in action!!  I’ve booked a couple of shows coming up.  If you’re in the SF Bay Area put these on your list of “things to rock out to”.

On the night of October 5th, 2010 Menlo Park will be set upon by a force of dark electronica so powerful the entire city may be at risk of complete annhilation!!  I’ll be representing the local flavor with my own heavy bass originals mixed with some deep and dark DnB.  Expect headliners Cervello Elettronico and Detune X to eviscerate the dancefloor with some powerful noise and industrial madness afterwards!

Then, on October 10 come to SanFrancisco’s Burningman Decompression and catch me playing at Cafe Cocomo from 4:00pm!  There’s life after Playa! Hold onto that lovely playa spirit that you’ve brought home with you! It needs to be nurtured to be kept warm and alive. The best way to do it is at the 11th Annual SF DECOMPRESSION Heat the Street FaIRE!!!
