Better Living Through Stasis (2020)

By roboctopus on January 19, 2020 9:21 pm

I was working on another Octatrack/Digitone jam, but then found an LSDJ .sav file I'd been looking for since late 2012.


This track was originally submitted for WeeklyBeats 2012. Back then it was a loosely structured LSDJ  jam, just me switching patterns in live mode. I wanted to finish it and include it on my album disco.txt, but during a motherboard failure and computer rebuild, the .sav file got lost. I found it Wednesday on an old flash drive and decided to try and finish it.


I am still tweaking things but I think it's close to actually being done. Mostly levels, smoothing out transitions, etc.


Quick recording from two Game Boy Advance SPs that are hella noisy.

This is so catchy! Some really great stereo stuff going on. I love the echo stuff you have especially in that little middle break!

Brilliant! I think I remember this track actually. The harmonies are so rich.

I love rediscovering songs that I started a long time ago.

Dope song.

Compared to the old one, the lower tempo really sounds nice, not quite as messy.

Agreed. 2020 me is more down with slower tempos for sure!
