The Mandelbrot Set – Aftemath


Frst post in a long time: I’ve been playing for a bit but I’m gonna try to get back into the swing of postings anyways.

This set is mostly a result of the Toronto propane explosion that occured on Sunday morning near where I live – one of the few positive things to come of that…hence the darkness, the noise and the bits of fear and anger. In any case, I found it relieving myself to express some of how I felt hearing all the explosions and crap in the middle of the night – not knowing what it was, fearing bombs or worse.

Anyways – the stuff is a a fair bit mixed so the tracklist isn’t totally linear! As always, feedback and stuff is appreciated!

The Mandelbrot Set Returns!

    Hello folks!

Yeah, I know it’s been a long while since I’ve post, and I apologize to any clandestine fans who haven’t commented or anything. Its not really that I haven’t been playing at clckwrk – its more that I just haven’t been satisfied with a piece enough to stick it up on here, is all.

Anyways, no more – since I’m quite happy with this mix here, again – both the tunage and sticking it together. I still have a lot to learn, and could definitely use a better toolset to work with while mixing, but otherwise, I think its good and hope you do too. Its a mix of melodic housey piano stuff and some bleepy electro cuts and all that stuff. Kinda splits in the middle then bends back, funnily enough.

As usual, feedback and stuff is appreciated.

The Mandelbrot Set – Frosted Beats

mandelbrot3.jpgSo, it looks like I’m back with another mix to post – though this one isn’t so recent like the other ones. This time I’m pulling one back from mid december, but the tracklist is really nice so I wanted to share it and all. Mixings not amazing, a bit off in places – but fortunately theres no real train wrecks in sight. As for content, it starts out all female vocally and morphys into a techy minimal soundfest with lots of nice precussion and synth textures ( or I think so anyways). Again, length is about 1:15 or so. Speaking of length too, how is the size? Is this a good chunk for you guys or should I take more/less of my set? Input would be great on this!

Anyways, thanks for all the positive responses so far! I really appreciate them and I hope you enjoy this set too!

Clockwork: (n)eXt podcast, electronica tonight, and new events!

Clockwork is for lovers

(The podcast is at the end, so scroll down if you’re in a hurry for some aural relief.)

Okay, so I told you ’bout the walrus and me man? You know we moved our Monday set to Friday nights (6-8 pm SL)? Well, here’s another clue you can mull, the walrus was Hulk. And Esteban/Hulk will be dj’ing Mondays at Clockwork playing a wider range of favorites and plenty o’ rock. Don’t worry, the funk will still happen on Friday nights, it just means there won’t be a hole in the schedule on Monday. Not only that, Clockwork has added KONA radio dj GoSpeed Racer to our Monday lineup from 4-6 pm to warm up the crowd before Esteban (and to provide a happy hour for those of you who have the live music open mic Mondays bug, yeah, you know who you are).

So now there is music at Clockwork six days a week (I’m still holding Saturday night open for special events), and lots of slots open before 6-8 for any djs in a European time zone, or later for those of you out west or on the Pacific Rim. (Hint, hint.) If you’re a dj looking for a gig and think you might fit in at Clockwork, point me toward a podcast or drop a notecard on my profile with a playlist from a recent set. Please don’t ask me to come hear you live; as much as I’d like to, my RL schedule prohibits me from many extracurricular activities.

Schedule as of 1.27.08

Sunday, 6-8 pm Tonight!
The Mandelbrot Set with dj Xaxoqual
IDM, ambient dance tracks, hooky breakbeats

Monday, 4-6 pm
Do you remember rock n roll radio?
KONA radio w/ GoSpeed Racer

Monday, 6-8 pm
Motor City is Burning
dj Esteban kicks out the jams

Tuesday, 6-8 pm
TMI Tuesdays with JellyBean and HawksRock
Rock music laced with conversation you won’t believe

Wednesday, 6-8 pm
This Ain’t No Trainwreck
dj Garrett gets it in the groove and works it

Thursday, 6-8 pm
Danceteria w/dj Gorgeous Guen
a club mix to start your weekend on the right day

Friday, 6-8 pm
(n)eXt w/ dj keTchUp
two hours of mostly new music–indie rock and club tracks

Friday, 8-9 pm
[a contest-winning name will be here when we figure out who won]
dj Esteban digs deep into funklore and unearths the mothership connection, shake your rump!

In any case, for those of you who want to recap last Monday’s new music set, here’s the podcast. And yeah, there’s some old stuff in there. Sue me. :p Betcha can’t name more than 10 without looking at the track listing.

Well, it seems like about time for me to post another mix! This one is from this Sunday, and its very much an ambient-ish set, but not beatless (hence the title). Well..I don’t have much to say about it really…aside from the fact that I’m quite happy with the turnout and I hope you all will enjoy it!

The Mandelbrot Set – First Post!

mandel_2.gifWell…hello everybody!

I have a bit of trepidation about posting here and all, as I’m not the most engrossing writer, but I figured the chance to put my sets up is worth a shot!

Anyways, those of you who go to clockwork know I’ve been regularly bringing the electronic stuffs on Sundays, for well…at least a decent amount of time. For those who don’t – I’m an electronic devotee in all its forms: from beard stroking wtf-is-that IDM/braindance to hooktastic dance cuts, I’m there. Not to say I don’t respect other genres, but thats where my passion is.

I’m gonna post my most recent mix, which is well..from Sunday! I’m really happy with how it turned out, and quite eager to share! It’s mostly IDM and minimal and tech, and very percussive if anything – pretty dancey too! Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed mixing it.

Anyways, here’s the music – hope you all enjoy and thanks for putting up with my rambling!
