Most of you who have been a fan of Testube for a few years know the Second Soul album pretty well. But did you know that there was actually a first "Soul" release that came before that? Back in 1996, when I was first learning the in's and out's of my Alesis QS+, and wrestling with my band name a bit, I sent out a limited number of demo cassettes titled Soul. This collection of mid-tempo instrumentals was never sold, but rather used as a promo tool, and paved the way for the sound of the Second Soul album released shortly thereafter. keep reading »
I'm super excited to share a brand new R010R release from my friend Michael Renfield, featuring a special Nulectro Remix of his track "Airlockt"! If you like gritty, in-your-face, raw and militant synthesis, you should add R010R to your must-have list. The 4-track single was just released on Basic Unit Productions - check it out below!
Excited to hear that the new Lucidstatic remix disc You Are Here has just been released! This excellent collection features a dozen unique remixes of songs originally written by Lucidstatic, the veteran electronic artist from Anchorage, and I'm proud to be a part of it. The Testube remix of the song "The Drop" shows up as track 4 - check it out here!
Very excited and relieved to announce that the new Testube EP Atavistic has just been released! It has been a long and hard road to completion with this one, due not only to time constraints and technical challenges, but also adjusting to a new off-grid studio space. As the title suggests, the release is something of a "throwback" to my roots. From the raw accordion intro (yeah, that's right..accordion!) to the old school breakin' electro sound of the track "Bleeds More Cowbell", these tunes are the mutant bastard offspring of a glitch-inspired digital tinkerer and his inner analog demons. Hope you dig it!
