skylab studios

It was December 2001. I was still in the midst of recording my 3rd record in my old bedroom at my parents house. I was definitely in studio mode. In the meantime to distract myself, I took some of Daniel’s 4-track tapes he dubbed “thebobgreene” and mixed some of his tracks and added some instrumentation. More of his unfinished songs that needed something extra. I still think they are more remixes than anything. I think most of his tracks were recorded with a Casio SK-1, delay and wahwah pedal. It was this effortless mechanics of keeping his music simple that turned me on.

I am not sure what else should be said about it. Daniel could explain it better than me, but I was really proud of these mixes.

    The feedback patch you hear is the JP-8000 (the synth on the bottom – in the picture above). It’s one of my favorite patches on that Roland beast! It’s possible I use it too much. But I just can’t stop.

  2. Two (Icarus Dream Mix)

    Fanfare to the max. I always felt this was too happy for thebobgreene, but there was something about laying down a lead in one take that is special. I am pretty sure I spent a weekend trying to get the right sound out of my recently acquired Jupiter 6 (the synth on the top). And in the end, all it needed was a Big Muff distortion box. Oh, and there’s theremin in there, but you need to really listen hard.

  3. Three (Mons Fuzz Mix)

    Who doesn’t like white noise?

    I honestly have no recollection of this track at all.
