I proudly present to you the nastiest, dirtiest, funkiest LP of my career to date.
Recorded and mixed entirely on analogue equipment, this is the next evolutionary leap from my Bare Hands series of EPs. What's different? Well, for one thing, this is a full-length LP, intended for vinyl. Tracks 1-4 comprise Side A, Tracks 5-9 are Side B.
Also, while these tunes began life on the same cheap Yamaha 4-track, I've hugely expanded my sonic palette.
These tunes are even more raw and spontaneous in their performance than anything I've done before! Enjoy the psychedelic Jazz-Funk-Afrobeat vibes! Dig into the Dirt.
This album was mixed on an Alesis Studio24 console.
