Festival Season

2

Well, summer’s coming up fast and I’ve already got a couple gigs lined up that I’m really excited about this year.  I’ve been asked to play Photosynthesis again, this times perhaps doing two different sets over the weekend.  As readers of my blog will know, I’ve recently switched to using the Elektron Octatrack in place of a laptop and the APC40 …

Elektron Octatrack Review

20

Trying to review something like the Elektron Octatrack has turned out to be more challenging than I expected.  Mainly because it can be used in so many ways, it’s not easy to try and cover it from all angles.  Never the less, I’ll do my best, even if that means focusing more on the things that I personally use mine …

0

8 Lies Left – Downtempo – 03-22-2012 New track I just wrapped up using the Elektron Octatrack.  Kind of a lo-fi chill, funky vibe on this one, and not too long either.

Elektron live set video

Normally when I wrap up a project, I look forward to moving on and putting it behind me. But I’ve been having so much fun performing on the Machinedrum and Octatrack this week, I wanted to give it one more go.  Plus, I felt bad that I wasn’t able to capture the last peformance on video, when I knew so …

Been getting a few questions about how I did my recent Elektron live set, so I’ll tackle the set up and how I performed it here on the blog.  The set can be downloaded here if you haven’t heard it but are curious: http://tarekith.com/m-dot-live-elektron-set/ So the basic idea was pretty simple, could I take my current downtempo live set that …
