The Du Cane Court ‘Studio’ aka ‘Mission Control’

January 14, 2017

The ‘studio’ at Du Cane Court, in Balham, South West London, where I recorded and arranged many albums and tracks including ‘False Dawn’, ‘Die Datenschleuder’, ‘Knowledge’, ‘Prismatic’, the Lagowski Chromium Industries 12″ series, Nagamatzu and engineered Lustmord, Terror Against Terror and Isolrubin BK. That is Lustmord’s Akai keyboard in the foreground, which we used as a MIDI controller and sampler. A while after this, I got a Yamaha DX11 to control my MIDI equipment and sold the TEAC 8 track and Seck 12-8-2 mixer to Paul Rooney, the guitarist from Vice Squad.Lagowski at Mission Control

The Many Hours at Salisbury House

July 17, 2016

I have compiled some tracks I made while working in the attic of my parents’ house in London, between 1984-1987. There’s quite a bit of guitar, melancholy and some noisy drum machine workouts too. These were recorded while I was very active with Nagamatzu, so fans of Nagamatzu will be able to hear some of our trademarks here too. Star of the show has to be the Boss DE-200 digital delay that I used on most of my recordings from 1984-2000+ – see if you can spot where it’s been used.

DioXide ‘Specular Mirrors’ CD

January 28, 2016

DioXide-Specular-MirrorsA new release recorded with Andrea Bellucci of ‘Red Sector A’ is now available from Space Race Records This dark stripped-out techno album was recorded between 2014 and 2015 and arranged and mixed at Andrea’s studio by him in 2015. I must point out that while I am credited with additional programming on the CD sleeve, Andrea did most of the work. I provided some atmospheres and samples but the concept and overall sound of the whole set of recordings is Andrea’s and he should be commended for a fine job!

**UPDATE** Copies can now also be purchased direct from me via Discogs
