"Improvised" by Steve Cooley

Posted: 2009-09-30 00:00

Improvisation is something that many electronic dance music musicians strive to be able to do. Steve Cooley has achieved this ability with the help of the device he built called ]]>Beatseqr]]>, and he puts it to the test for this 4-tracker release. Created essentially from scratch with almost no preparation, you actually hear him build each one up beat by beat. A good set of sounds and an knack for box-bangin" is all Steve had to go on. I"m sure you"ll agree that he"s got a technique that"s definitely doing good things. Download and enjoy!

And just so you know, that circuit board on the artwork was used to build version 3 of Beatseqr.

"09.09.09" release to celebrate the TR-909

Posted: 2009-09-09 00:00

Just like the Rhodes piano, the Hammond organ and the Stratocaster guitar left their mark forever in the world of musicmakers, so did the ]]>Roland TR-909 drum machine]]>. The successor to the also classic TR-808, the TR-909 can be heard in a large number of electronic dance music tracks created over the last 25 years. Its sound is unique, classic and often imitated by many other hardware devices and sound-generating software. On this appropriate day in history…09.09.09 (September 9th, 2009), we commemorate this legendary machine by presenting to you these seven tracks laden with 909 sounds or very inspired by them. Celebrate with us by downloading this release, loading it into your favorite player, and as we like to say….BANG IT!!

  1. The Rhythmist - "Darling"
  2. Qorser - "Carbonated 909"
  3. Lucas Rodenbush - "789"
  4. El Gato #9 - "The Number 9"
  5. Lucas Rodenbush - "Timing Is Everything"
  6. Qorser - "bdsdltmthtrshcchohcr"
  7. The Rhythmist - "Percussion Storm"

Steve Cooley is back with ‘Imprecision’ release!

Posted: 2009-01-27 00:00


We’ve all been anxiously waiting to hear from Steve Cooley again, and he’s found some time between a full-time job and being a new dad to present us with his new release, ‘Imprecision’. Six tracks of neck-rockin’ beats that will no doubt have the dancefloor rockin’ too. He even had time to make the laser-cut acrylic artwork that graces the artwork (which he designed) for this release. So you can’t say the man hasn’t been busy.

This is also our first ever pay download release. Don’t worry…we will still have free releases available, but this release has that extra ‘umph’ that we think is worth some of that change in your pocket. We hope you’ll think so too.

New Release: AEOD - ‘32′

Posted: 2008-10-30 00:00

It was all over the news…everyone saw it. You know what we’re talkin’ about. If not, you’re about to get it explained by AEOD. But it’s an audio explanation, so tune your ears in for an audible break down of OJ Simpson’s story. And, here’s a quick bit of background on each track from AEOD’s view…

Buffalo Bill:
When OJ first realized he was getting drafted from USC by the Bills, Then came the women, partying, fast life and all that.

The mystery still revolves around Orenthal. Did he or didn’t he?

Suspect on Highway 5 -
The title speaks for itself. Interrupted the Rockets game during the 1995 finals!

Closing Arguments:
Johnnie Cochran just being Johnnie Cochran…playing the race card to the fullest.

Walk Free:
The 1995 verdict. Not knowing…13 years to the exact day.

15 To Live (Lookout Jerome):
OJ looks like someone we know named Jerome. Mostly because they have similar facial expressions. So we called him jerome. “Thank you Mr. Simpson for all you have done. You may have a seat.”

  1. Buffalo Bill
  2. 32
  3. Suspect On Highway 5
  4. Closing Arguments
  5. Walk Free
  6. 15 to Life (Lookout Jerome)
