Cadaver Jack

Cadaver Jack is the 2nd tune of the 2nd year run so far. The first one was ok but not up to the standard I’m after. Cadaver Jack started off with a bassline sounding like cockney zombie electro, but scrapped it as I couldn’t get anything to fit with it.

The new version sounds much better, always experimenting with the bass to get it deeper, louder and hitting you in the chest. I always want standards to be raised and never to rest. Rest when you’re dead, for now write like a machine.

I’m firing out a very strong 7 track demo to push to get a release soon. I’m looking for an established label, it always acts as a great catalyst to have an outlet, and it’s about time I got enough recognition to get out there and play, not to mention earn a few quid.

It’s always sad the uk rarely can get over it’s politics, it’s always the US or Europe that like what I do. Coming from the outside in, people suddenly like you. They have all had the demos too, but it just spurs me on to write madness that cannot be denied.

The Ghost is someone you want in your corner, and will fight for whoever supports him, not as a mercenary, but as a member of a squad. It’s a shame I haven’t found a squad to fight with long term yet.

Some bad luck with labels over the years, but I haven’t let myself become jaded, that’s just the way the dice fell. I’m writing the best electro weirdness of my life and improving constantly, so someone will want to back it. It so different though, which can put a lot of people off, but it lasts far longer than anything else, because it sounds like nothing else.

Last years 31 tracks for 12 months was a good tally but should have been 40 plus. Hopefully I can push to over 40 tracks in 2012. It will leave a huge bag of tracks to wreak havoc with, wherever they may launch from.

Tazers In The Sun – No 31

Just when I thought this was going to be a slow end to the tracks for the last 12 months, Tazers turns it all around. This one (no 31) will blow up your car, your house and probably next door as well.

I may just squeeze out track 32 before the 1st Dec, but it proves that keeping going and not stopping is far, far better than taking breaks.

Experimenting with writing straight after I return home, has worked. It makes it the priority instead of starting after screwing with watching TV or getting distracted. It also seems to get better quality results faster.

Seems your mind likes schedule and routine, so now I need to set a schedule for the weekend, with some flexibility built in if I need to go anywhere. It would be very cool to finish each tune in 5 days and take the weekend off, but thats a tall order, as each one can be different.

Some come easy, others take a little while before they come good. But after this length of time, knowing you can do it, and still produce high quality, inventive underworld destruction, I wish I had done this years ago.

Really though, I never could have, you have to understand your own mind and head to be able to train it. Guess I’m making up for lost ground. The advantage I have is that even now, no one sounds like me, I have my own style, and it doesn’t fade heavily over time.

Just refuse to walk away knowing I could be part of something, and be out there playing and travelling, like I should be. I think, or I know I stack up heavily to the competition.

I Came Back For You – Track 19 Electro Breaker

This was a little hard, but as usual turned out pretty good in the end, like they always do.
I will actually be discarding some good tunes, but the standards keep flying higher.

My mind tried to just grind to a halt the last 2 weeks, as if it has done enough and doesn’t need to do anymore. I spotted this and slowly pulled it back around.

I know it can be done and 45-48 tracks each and every year is very possible, if you make it part of everyday life, and not the magical holy grail.

You can drip feed your creativity, treat it like a well that runs dry after 2-3 hours, but fills up the next day. This avoids burnout because its not kicked hard and always coaxed into small steps.

Think I made the mistake of trying to push too hard as I missed a few days through passing out sleeping after work. Now I know what to avoid doing.

“I Came Back For You” is number 19 of the biggest batch of electro breaks tunes I’ve ever done. Amazingly it looks like the train is going to keep on rolling.
