Back on that horse

Unrehearsed from a crate I dragged to my lovely neighbor’s going away party. I wish I had recorded all 4 hours that night but this will have to do. I actually cut this off in time to burn the entire session to CD. How quaint.  Anywho… PLAY IT LOUD


Faktory MixJust under an hour of seething electronic klang.




My friend Jeremy recently posed a question – how do you refer generally to all of the genres presently described as EDM without resorting to that loathsome term? My answer: TECHNO can be used to describe nearly any music employing machines or even non-mechanical music that emulates them.


The Sounds Of Earth presents a meditation on this insight. A HYPERSURFACE is a mathematical construct used to describe a surface in a different number of dimensions. This compilation draws on that concept to illustrate the multi-dimentionality of techno.

The BA.SE.


Nearly a decade after the first BAllroom.SEssions recording was released, DiReC1Fr0mDiGi1aL is pleased to present the latest in the series.

And while every BA.SE. mix is arranged and recorded in Doug Singer’s loft studio in Brooklyn, Williamsburg’s old Miller-Grand Ballroom, there is a unique story behind each SEssion…

BA.SE.x4 originated as a gift for Beyond Booking’s ultra-fab Kiss & Tell holiday swap (many thanks to Seze Devres for the inspiration!).

BA.SE.X5 is almost entirely the result of a vinyl-buying frenzy at famed Manhattan record store, Rebel Rebel, with a few choice cuts supplied by Dope Jams of Brooklyn.
