about

All of these tracks were recorded and mixed before I started working at my own "Hoboken Hi-Fi" studio. These tracks were partially recorded in my band's rehearsal room, my living room or even the little room up in the attic. Most of them were mixed on a temporary setup in the corner of my former apartment's living room.

Although, in a lot of ways, I am still quite happy with most of these tracks and I think they contain some interesting ideas, grooves and melodies; there's also quite a learning curve noticable when you listen to them chronologically. I was (and still am, of course) learning from each track and every mistake.

This seemed like an appropriate time to group all of these tracks together in a seperate album.

The idea for the future is to see dub and reggae as a starting point, not as the final destination.

I hope you can enjoy this collection of tracks for the journey they are and have been for me.
