the title above is an old phrase i used to say all the time, and it has been creeping back into my vocabulary again as of late. I truly believe it. when it comes to music, after that first time you play it, it becomes nothing but auditory masturbation. this is why i try to make sure I am always recording when I compose. the best stuff i have ever done has been done on the fly. and when I am recording a band, I highly encourage the same sort of behavior from the musicians present. give me something new. . . play it like you never have before… with feeling… the first time i roll tape. I HATE overdubs…they always seem contrived.

I have been ACHING to lay down some new musical ideas lately….and because of that, I have been listening to some old tracks and studying what we did in studio. I came accross one of the best examples of what I stated above. this track was done I believe in the spring of 2001 or was it 2002(deacon help me out on this)… during which a bottle of sake was consumed.

deacon came over to the house with the bottle of sake, so we were in the right mood for sweet sweet musical love. we went down to basement where my studio was… set up his laptop, my latoptop, studio computer, and i believe a keyboard(I think he brought along his microkorg for the first time… again, could be wrog on that). deacon had the thought of aping an underworld track… while i was in one of my 808 state forever moods( it ended up sounding like something Dr. Patterson would do with the ORB).

we ended up making 3 or 4 passes at the track… never overdubbed a single instrument… just added as we went along. a short bit of tightening on the production, and this was the result.

I STILL love this track… and miss those recording sessions….

80808

in celibration of 80808, what could be better than some 808 state?

timebomb-track is just a JAM… deacon should recognize the baseline that I have ripped off time and time again….

OLYMPIC-since the olympics open today… this one seems fitting…love the hair too… and check out the atari providing sync

pacific-is there a more beautiful start to a techno track? this track pretty much launched the entire genre of “trans”…. everyone wanted to emulate those string lines.

IN YOUR FACE- this goes out to .. well, if you have been reading comments… you know who.

One In Ten(with UB40)-quite possibly my favorite remix the 808 boys have done. yes, I know the song by definition, and content is UBER gay…. but it is a F’n JAM)

gotta have 808080808

and the classic… CUBIK

nope… none of this EVER influenced my music… never…..
