MIDI Controlled Addiction

MIDI Controlled Addiction

MIDI Controlled Addiction is my debut album featuring acid jazz, drum and bass, trip-hop and deephouse grooves. This is a collection of songs that I had been working on for a number of years. Even though many of these songs were created years ago, I chose to wait until I felt the time was right to share my music publicly. MIDI Controlled Addiction is the starting point of this process.

1. Nice and Soft and Smooth

Nice and Soft and Smooth was a lot of fun to create. It got its start from the flute melody. The flute melody originally started as the synth. I wanted to come up with a compliment to the synth and thought a flute would be Continue reading →

6. Been So Lonely

Been So Lonely is actually my very first song. It’s been around for a long time. Since the song was created so long ago, I ended up creating an unreleased remix of the song called the Dreamstate Mix. The Dreamstate Mix actually by in the Continue reading →

7. Department of Corrections

I wanted to create Department of Corrections to sorta’… uplift people if that makes any sense. I wanted to create a song that if you happened to be listening to a playlist while driving and you were kinda’ in a bad mood… traffic, heat, bumpy road, whatever and Department of Corrections came on, your Continue reading →
