Live Techno Series #3 - MC-909 & Virus - Simon Stokes

"Hi ho folks!

At last, it is time once again for another live techno video! I've bought myself a shiny new digital camera, and today I set up my old setup, keeping it all hardware for sound mangling. The MC-909 is sequencing everything, with parts 1-8 playing from the Virus TI2 and parts 9-16 playing off the 909 itself. All of that is then running into the Behringer Tweakalizer for some more knob twiddling fun, then into the Alesis 3630 compressor to be squashed. Finally, it is recorded in Ableton Live.

It's a bit rough around the edges - a combination of too many sounds to tweak / mute and too few hands to do it you'll have to excuse the arrangement. All comments are warmly appreciated..

Things have been going well recently - I was Djing with Matthias Tanzmann at New Year in Glasgow, which was excellent; Carl Cox has become my number one fan(!!), dropping tracks from the Rekluse EP all over the place including on his radio show twice; and I am in the process of signing up a load more tracks with some rather awesome this space!

Thanks for all the support, it means a whole lot to me. For any bookings, please get in touch with me through the links below.
