about

The album is a bit fruity and flamboyant at times... 48% of your daily bass intake, but here are the details.

::Songs::

Masseuse - I got this amazing massage at Bancroft school of massage in Worcester. It felt like a trip to sunny California. Soon after, I sat down and composed this bass heavy tune.

Legal Addiction - I made it through GA (Gamers Anonymous) and I wanted to summarize the gaming experience in a song... the darkness, video game light, stiff posture, junk food, etc.

1 - Heavily inspired by X-files and being part of the Section Z community. Section Z would be equivalent to going to an open mic and hearing the best musicians you've never heard of bust out jaw dropping songs day after day. This site also was known for their musical marathons (swimming song, 999 bpm song, etc)

Wolf Teeth - I am a fan of Usher to some, and a closet fan of Usher to others. I envisioned him breaking into a beautiful house with glass walls carved into a mountain side. Of course, he took the time to make a music video during the burglary and strut some silhouetted dance moves.

Rain On Saturdays - I always made these electronic tracks next to a window in my Worcester, MA apartment, so the light really affected my mood. The day this tune was cut, heavy rain poured from the sky, but didn't obscure the sunlight, which was a crystal blue, instead of a bright orange. I had some video game withdrawal left over so you may have the urge to play tetris while listening.

Shift (Featuring the Erm) - This song is kinda awkward and I always want to yank it from the album, but then I remember how I felt in high school. Picture a geeky grinning nerd with a backpack showing up to a dance club and you'll get the idea.

Flower Children - One of the earlier tunes knitted while I was very happy.

Sunday Morning Snow - Tumble down a snowy hill in slow motion, and play this as you descend. It's the *only* way to listen to this song.

::Gear::

- Computer
- Fruity Loops 5

about

Ruben Hudson, Massachusetts

Got into folk in college after seeing Leo Kottke, Christopher Williams, and Ellis Paul live. Got into the Drum&Bass genre thanks to WERS late late night show where DJ Food proved that even the rhythms of toothbrushing can enhance a song.

After college I listened more to Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Loess, Riton, and Beanfield for more inspiration. Mainly use Fruity loops for electronic songs.
