“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…

Coming Up Next…

Anodyne Industries hasn’t ever been about making music that can easily be categorized.  It’s been about pummeling your eardrums with awe inspiring sounds, breaking through the barriers of musical apathy and transforming listeners on the dancefloor from passive drones into a surging mass of pure energy hellbent on reaching the stars!!

After releasing “The Combat Singles” I took a break from those fast paced & hard hitting basslines to dip into the murky abyss of dub and distortion.  The expedition was a success and I’ve unearthed a seething brooder of a tune.  “From The Depths” will be released some time in September as a special preview for an upcoming EP.

In the mean time, if you haven’t already, stop by my Facebook Page and hit take “like” button.  In the future I’ll be dropping some special “VIP” releases and other goodies for my mailing list fans and Facebook followers only!

Know Your Roots: House

Posted in Uncategorized on July 22, 2010 by Anodyne

“In the beginning there was Jack and Jack had a groove, and from this groove came the groove of all grooves…”

Ok listen up.  I’m going to tell you a story.  It’s about the beginning of our sound.  The beginning of electronic dance music as we know it today.  I’ve gone through a few documentaries and books and interviews etc.  This Youtube video sticks out to me as the easiest to digest and fastest retelling of the story.  Check it out:

Long story short?  Disco exploded at the end of the 70s.  The club, Paradise Garage opened with Larry Levan at the decks.  He worked his special kind of magic and elevated the dance floor to new heights.  He made an indelible mark on the history of dance music.  (If you haven’t heard one of his classic mixes yet, DO IT.  You won’t be sorry.)

But disco died and went underground.

A new club opened.  The Warehouse employed Frankie Knuckles as it’s resident DJ.  It was the only place in the city people could go to hear the underground and classic disco songs that Knuckles played.  The hype grew and record stores started putting the singles being played at the Warehouse in their own category.

People would come into Import Records asking for “that new warehouse song” or “that track they played at the warehouse”.  Eventually the store shortened the name to “house music” and people would come in asking for that “house music”.

The sound evolved.  Some kids were playing with a weird new bass synthesizer from Roland one day.  They started making their own house music records with it.  Acid house was born and…

The Beginning.

The “Combat Singles” Are Now Available!!

Posted in Uncategorized on July 15, 2010 by Anodyne

The wait is over!  The “Combat Singles” went live today.  You can purchase “BassMech” and “Decibomb” in the high quality audio format of your choice over at the “Anodyne Industries Online Shop“!  Buy the full release (two songs) for a low price of $1.98 or each track individually for $.98!!

“BassMech” is a straightforward monster of a track boasting a thunderous beat coupled with intense and powerfully distorted bass manipulations.  Throw this track on a loud sound system, pull the trigger and watch the dancefloor undulate under the sheer force of sonic power wrought by the “BassMech”!!

“Decibomb” is exactly what it claims to be.  A highly effective explosive audio device armed with warping layers of bass, eerie pads and vocals and plenty of low end punch for any HeavyBass zealot!

This release marks my first commercial endeavour.  If you enjoy my music and support the Anodyne Industries sound your $1.98 is greatly appreciated!

Audio Reactive Video Experiment Collab

Posted in Uncategorized on May 13, 2010 by Anodyne

I’ve been collaborating with a local video artist Jonathan Ferran on some video work.  Using “The Gateway EP” as a base he’s done some interesting experiments with his new video rig and uploaded them to his Vimeo page.  I’m not all up to speed on live video programming and interactive 3D rendering… But this looks cool!  I can’t wait to work with Jonathan more on upcoming projects.

New Release! ‘Razorwire Necktie/Revelations Remix Swap’

Posted in Uncategorized on April 19, 2010 by Anodyne

“Razorwire Necktie/Revelations” is a remix swap project I undertook with fellow IDMf artist Cracked World Foundations.  The task was simple, each of us produced an original track with no creative or thematic constraints.  Then we swapped audio stems and remixed eachother’s work, again with no rules to abide by.

The result is a 4 track EP with Anodyne Industries bringing forth some forward thinking Drum & Bass and Cracked World Foundations stepping up to the plate with some inspired Glitch/IDM.

You can stream this release on my Soundcloud page or download it for FREE here from my site.

@ SXSW 2010

Posted in Uncategorized on March 18, 2010 by Anodyne

Work sent me to SXSW this year. Even if you’re not in an indie noise pop electro funk blues hip hop group I’d recommend checking it out. From an artists’ perspective it’s ridiculously informative (and I’ve only been here for a couple of days so far.)

Last night I checked out Barcelona for the Surefire party. Heard Dreadbass Sound System’s debut performance. Some great dub sounds coming from these guys. Check them out at http://www.myspace.com/dreadbasssoundsystem

Got a chance (finally) to hear Eprom play. That guy is a crowd controller. I’m not all about glitch hop but he played a couple of tracks that blew me away. The club was setup so no matter where you were standing in the crowd you could see the performer so I got a nice clean view of his performance.

Later on my face was treated to a nice massage by some heavy dubstep. I REALLY wish I had some ear plugs. The bass was a physical force in the room.

If you’re in the Austin area on a Sunday check out Barcelona for some heavy bass music! Highly recommended.
