Enter Offshore and OrganicJanuary 24th, 2012

The rumors are true, there will be a collaboration series between Offshore (which has been on a bit of a hiatus) and UK based Organic. Various other websites, including Organic and Knowledge already let the cat out of the bag, so I’m just going to link the audio with few words.

The A-Side comes in the form of Fracture & Neptune going back in on a track they did for Offshore a few years back, “Ups & Downs.” They emerge with the 2012 VIP, which falls directly in line with recent output on their label, Astrophonica.

OSRORG001A – Fracture & Neptune – “Ups & Downs VIP” by Organic

The B-Side also encompasses Mr. Fracture, but this time paired up with Qualified as Compound One to remix one of the most notable tracks from the Offshore back catalog, “I Am Metal.” Produced by Graphic, it features the vocal talents of Beans from Anti Pop Consortium. Compound One bring a bionic, pulsing remix fit for a late 90’s Headz session at Blue Note.

Stay tuned for more promotional materials surfacing before the February 20th release date!

Rainy Sunday MixMay 16th, 2011

I spent most of Sunday indoors due to the rain, giving me a chance to record a new Drum & Bass mix. I’ve spent lots of time recently weeding through my record collection to sell those I grabbed in haste over the years (or have doubles of). However, once I’m done with a chunk of sorting, there’s no time left to mix any records.

Today – problem solved.

Justice & Metro – Solomon (Jason oS Remix) – Metro
Seba – Hidden Reflections – Secret Operations
Instra:mental & D-Bridge – Detuned – Darkestral
Doc Scott – Jungle Jungle – 31 Records
Abstract Elements – Apathetic Vibe – Alphacut
Ed Rush & Optical – Punchbag – Virus
ASC – The Bounce – Dub
Sublogics –  Logic (Dom & Roland Remix) – Audio Blueprint
Fracture & Neptune – Hot Spot – Astrophonica
Break – Vanishing Point – East Side
Ian Foxfire – Kill-9 – Thermal
Hidden Agenda – Relentless – Metalheadz
Mode – If I Ever Feel Better – Dub
Nasty Habits – Liquid Beatz – 31 Records
Vaccine – Radiate (Subeena Remix) – Offshore
Squarepusher – Unknown – White

Retail AwarenessApril 25th, 2011

Very often, it’s easy to assume everyone around you is privy to all your news sources. The barrage of information available on the internets, social media and twitterverses must certainly be common knowledge to all, right? Well, sometimes that’s not the case.

So, I’ll back up and publicly state that I’m now a part of Gage + DeSoto. A concoction of design, marketing, events and media all anchored to an enthusiasm and passion for cycling. The webstore even contains a few items that I’m directly related to.

The last remaining stock of the Offshore Ripper T-Shirt is available along with a very limited version of a book titled, Kissing With Helmets. Perhaps stating the obvious (but not doing so would defeat the introduction to this post), my wife and I cycled across the United States last summer on our honeymoon. Our journey began in Portland, OR and took us to our front door in Brooklyn, NY. We chronicled our adventure along the way on kissingwithhelmets.com. Edie and I did such a great job doing so, that we turned it into a coffee table book.

The limited version is a hardcover imagewrap, #9 of 10 and features premium paper. The cover has since changed and can be purchased as a softcover, hardcover with dust jacket or hardcover with imagewrap on Blurb.com.

So, if you decide to click on just one of the various links in the post, I’ve successfully brought someone a step closer to my world.

From the Mix ArchivesMarch 14th, 2011

I re-discovered this mix a few days ago. Though it’s from spring of 2003, it still sounds as fresh as the day I mixed it. And, the tracks combined with MC Proof’s vocals make this a musical experience and not just a mix. So, I’ve decided to re-share it years later. Enjoy and spread it around!

Two 4 One Buried TreasureMarch 8th, 2011

I’ll start by saying that by no means do I advocate the use of “4” instead of “for”, “u” instead of “you” or any such nonsense. But, the kids like it, and I’m aiming for mass appeal with this one.

So, as the title suggests, the offer is a buy one, get one free Buried Treasure promotion. 20 tracks for the price of 10. Domestically, $10 gets you both shipped to your door and internationally it’s $15. If you live in Canada, subtract $2 (bonus) and if you live in Australia, add an extra $3 (sorry).

Both Volume 1 and Volume 2 are chock full of great music… see for yourselves.

We’re doing this basement style, so pay via Paypal to b underscore cleaver at hotmail dot com based on the pricing info above. I’ll personally dispatch your CDs within a day or two of payment. Chances are, I’ll even post them the same day and throw in an Offshore sticker!

Also of note, to help Gage & Desoto celebrate their new webstore, we’ve sent over the last remaining stock of the infamous Offshore “Ripper” T-Shirt. Get your cursors over there!

Limited Offshore T-ShirtJanuary 27th, 2011

OK, I’ve got one of each size: S, M, L and XL left in this uber limited Offshore Recordings T-Shirt. Some might recognize this as a graphic from a World Industries advert drawn by the legendary Marc McKee. Printed on American Apparel, $15 plus shipping. Available on a first come basis, so go grab one in the Offshore Recordings Store.
