Rhythm Sound and Movement finally out

A while ago I mentioned the remix I did for New Zealand band, Pitch Black. I’m proud to announce that the remix, entitled “Rude Mechanicals (mistrust’s ambiotik remix)”  is out now in New Zealand, and will be released worldwide over the next few weeks…. Here’s part of the official press release from Pitch Black’s label:

“we’re proud to announce the imminent release of Rhythm, Sound And Music, a collection of remixes of tracks from Rude Mechanicals. Some of our favourite from artists around the world have stepped up to the challenge of tweaking the originals: Bluetech, International Observer, Simon Flower, Patch, Kerretta, Friends Electric and many more (including England’s mistrust!). The full track listing is below.

You can check out the tunes in full at last.fm or most of them are also up on Pitch Black’s myspace.

(The mistrust remix is on my own myspace player here – myspace.com/mistrust)

You can either buy the 14-track CD from one of the online stores below, or if you are one of those thoroughly modern interweb peeps who prefers a download, you can get the surgically-enhanced 20-track ultra augmented bumper edition!!

To celebrate the new release, we are heading across to Australia in June for some shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, and then swiftly over to the West Coast of the USA for a handful more. All these dates are below, we’d love to see ya! We will also be heading to the UK and Europe in October, so keep an eye out for us and we’ll keep you updated closer to the time.

Enjoy the tuneage, we look forward to seeing you on the dancefloor sometime soon!”

I’m on iTunes at last

The remix I did for New Zealand dub/dance band Pitch Black is out today on iTunes and all the usual download sites (Amazon.com, Beatport etc). It’s one of the tunes on the band’s 6-track EP “Rude Mechanicals” and is my very first release on iTunes – in fact my very first “official” remix – so I’m feeling quite chuffed! The track has been on my music player for a while, so hopefully someone might like it on here!

The colour Purple

No post for a few weeks, mainly due to family commitments, work commitments, and stuff like that. However, I’m excited right now. I’m finally going to get some tunes played on an upcoming internet radio show. More details to follow after 10pm (UK time).

In the meantime, you can get hold of all my music for free. See the previous post for details….

Odeo, oh dear

I wanted to put some of music on the world of mistrust. I’ve got tracks hosted on Last.fm and loads of other sites, all with wonderful music players that can be embedded into a webpage. However, due to “security” concerns, WordPress won’t let you embed them because they’re all Flash-based. That leaves only a few of alternatives: direct text links to my Last.fm MP3s, which force readers to download or play them with their own music player; use a widget that will go in my sidebar; or use the built in audio player that WordPress allows.

I don’t want to build in text links because I want people to be able to listen while they’re reading, rather than having to mess around with their own player. The widget option is really Odeo or nothing, because the player looks good and is really a podcast in disguise, so it’s streamable. Sonific (the other music widget) won’t let you use your own music, so that’s out. So, Odeo it is. Or maybe not. It’s a useful website and sleek player, but finding the right place to put my music was a PIA, and then having to sort out how to get the tracks into a podcast took ages. Although they have nice little players that you can embed, the one in WordPress too big. There must be somthing easier. I may look at Odeo another time, but at the moment, I want a flashy music player and I ain’t going to get one. As for video, I’m going to look at the vodpod widget to stream my O’Neill videos…….

By the way….the I’ve got a new look to the site. More about this tomorrow.
