Today I put out a new record called "Extradiol". It's full of aggressive drum and bass, some glitchy breaks, and a pinch of lo-fi.

It's out now on Bandcamp (ratttznest.bandcamp.com/album/ ) and once Distrokid gets around to it, it'll also be out on your favorite streaming platform.

Anywho, I had a pretty strong showing in the sample flip fight night event that a friendly label puts on.

Here's my entry; honestly...strongly considering releasing this one officially, at least if I can find some (appropriate) material to release with it.

rambling 

...But the truth is that I'm more afraid of making it a little bit and then finding out that I'm creatively trapped there, without any time in the day left to continue to improve and learn, than I am scared of just getting so damn good and efficient that I can have time in the day to do both.

Importantly, it's also my business and my life and if I want to be education/learning first, like, that's my decision.

rambling 

Foggy day here in Seattle. Today's the first day in about nine that I've decided to take off.

Things have been reasonably okayish, like, it was nice to creep on another DJ's stream and find them playing my tune two days ago.

I might need to rethink or reconfigure my business for this particular moment, because I'm not sure how financially feasible it is given the state of things, but I probably *could* be cranking out more releases of a lower quality...

I'm looking forward to putting out another record before the year is out. I have the equivalent of one tune left to write, but in the meantime, short of any official announcements, here's a sneak peek of one of the record's extremely large bangers: "Reese's Pleases".

My future here 

Still haven't sorted out what I want to do about Mastodon, whether or not I'm moving instances, how much time I want to invest in it, et cetera. Honestly, the way .social has gone and other developments really undercuts a lot of my desire to stick around, but I'll try to figure it out in a more reasonable timeframe than "never".

Frustrated that I should probably start a new Masto account somewhere because the powers that be really fucked up.

When I can get to playing basement shows, I'm 100% playing something off of this record, it's just incredible.

one of the very few good things about being involved in underground dance music is that you have access to lovingly crafted jungle remixes of californication

Yesterday I released a brand new ep:

bad breaks

It's a record of nonstop drum breaks across a few different flavors, from moody glitch hop to needlessly aggressive breakcore and even a pinch of acid jazz.

It's currently available on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and soon, a streaming service near you.

So @Ratttz 's new album Bad Breaks is out and it slaps 💚

It's also Bandcamp Friday so they get more ducats if you buy it today!

Giving some serious thought about how I want to archive my stems moving forward. :thonking:

every now again i do find a project file that i'm just *baffled* that I stopped working on it given how fucking great the core idea is.

Hey you should consider listen to my friend @Ratttz give this podcast interview about electronic music production and adapting to the covid landscape.

They are both wildly charming and deeply thoughtful.

And their new album Bad Breaks drops tomorrow!

*listens to the microtonal trap that is hiding in a project file entitled "hwerjk.flp"*

ah i see why i did not bother finishing you

Cleaning out my projects folder. The record's done so it's time for me to move on to a new machine, and this is your reminder that if a project you want to keep has any unreliable dependencies, you should render out that track so you can keep it as it is.

In my case, specifically, it's unlikely that I'm going to reinstall the exact same soundfont player with the exact same soundfont later, so rendering out that track just leaves future me a potential out.

my record comes out tomorrow...! It's Bandcamp friday!!
