The Mix

27 12 2010

I finished my Re-Percussions mix finally after almost a year of working on it and putting it on the back burner. It’s  a good way to release the old and move forward. I made 50 unique digi-packs created from old record sleeves from the Jelly’s 50 cent bin to give to friends and family who’ve supported me and my DJing over the years. It will be available for download soon.

Sorry for the short notice, but Re-Percussions as a show, will be wrapping up it’s 5 year run. Starting as a training show at 3-6am on Monday nights/Tuesday mornings, I developed myself as an on-air DJ and came up with the name for the show (which was taken from a Hint track) and came up with my DJ name, from Trav-One-Five to Trav15.

From the beginning, back in 2005, I wanted to bring my unique taste in music to the listening audience. I thought to myself, I never hear my kind of music (Aphex Twin, Bonobo, Amon Tobin, etc.) on the radio. I got to KTUH and met lots of other people with similar interests and general love for music and the station. I have to thank the people who came before me, welcomed me, and inspired me. Thanks in particular to Sifu, Joan9, Dora, George, Eazy Al, Loriel, Meta[LX] Rid, Randi, and Rhombus.

I love KTUH for being the great student-run college radio station that it is. I got to experience so much, and have made many lasting friendships through it. From being Music Director to General Manager, repping the station at CMJ 2006 in NYC to partying at Indigo nights and fun days, it’s always been a priceless experience that I will never forget.

I’m still here, spinning tunes around town here and there, finishing up a mix, and as an alumni DJ. Remember to keep listening and supporting this great station.

Thanks to the all KTUHers and listeners who’ve made my show and growth possible. For the full thanks: Don’t sleep. Support. Create. That’s it.

From BBC 6 Music:

Steve Beckett, founder of Aphex’s parent label Warp Records, exclusively said: “We’re definitely going to be putting out a new album by him. Hopefully it will be this year, if I can prise it out of his hands. It’s definitely on its way.”

“I don’t know a single note or anything about it,” he explained. “It will be as much of a surprise to me as anyone else.

“Basically I find out what it sounds like when we go into the mastering room and he puts it – well how it used to be, he’ll put the DAT player in and there it’ll be – so that’s the first time I’ll hear it.

“Then I’ll go onto my knees and thank him and then we’ll put it out.”

Vinyl Vault Beat Challenge

18 05 2010

Also on the show tonight is the Super Mega Record Beat Challenge aka the bootychatterchallenge featuring the beat making styles of VEZZEN. Inspired by Dublab‘s Seconhand Sureshots project, Vezzen will have a little over 2 hours to make a track from records in the Vinyl Vault at KTUH. The Musical Ingredient Chef of The Cookbook: Recipes of Sound (the show preceeding Re-Percussions) will select several records forVezzen to sample and create a new track strictly from the records. No drum machines or synths or pre-recorded samples. Tune in at the beginning of the show for the brief and preview of some records, then Vezzen will unveil his composition at the end of the show before the clock strikes midnight.

Armed with a portable turntable, a 505, 555, and a mixer, Vezzen took samples from two of the five records selected by The Musical Ingredient Chef and flipped them into a new composition with two movements.

And here is the final track:

Vezzen said that he heard one beat from the first sample he grabbed, then after listening to another record heard another beat which explains the two movements. He sampled and sequenced it on the SP-505, his trusty machine, and performed it live with additional pan effects by me.

As we were inspired by Secondhand Sureshots, we hope that you too are inspired to make new music from old vinyl. Point is you don’t need a super expensive or rare record to get good samples out of it. Fun is the name of the game. So grab some records from Jelly’s 50 cent bin, Goodwill, or your vinyl shelf and let them talk to you.
