This release is an exploration of sounds and beats that came into light in 2012 for me. "Demixes" includes influences from electro-soul to love-step. I would not consider it an album of funk, or an album of glitch, but an album of experimentation and new limits. I have a plethora of sounds and genres that I dig, so for me this is an expression to sure that I am more than just a one trick pony and that I intend to keep it fresh for you and myself.

Over the past month, my computer suffered a serious accident that cost me a large amount of time getting my files restored and a lot financially. This album is being put out for free, but I would be greatly appreciative of any donations.

I have a funk EP via Resoul Records due in the next month or so, and then a glitch hop release with remixes by Blunt Instrument and Flavours still to be scheduled. Big things are just beginning folks!
