music releases studio about
oh yes. 2008! i meant to do a 2007 in review but forgot. even though it technically came out in 2006, my personal electro heroes and muses solvent and lowfish both listed madingley in their 2007 top tens, which was a real honour.
it has been a while since i've posted any minisystem news, but now i finally have a few tidbits. still struggling in the studio, but things are happening slowly. the most recent (albeit completely unnecessary) addition is a dave smith instruments prophet 08, which i like very much. otherwise, i seem to have become preoccupied with bicycles, which has admittedly been digging into music time. pictured above is my newly finished 1975 motobecane 'le champion', built up by the friendly people at cycle therapy in leslieville. hardcore bike nerds might note that the restored paint job is not to the original specifications of a 'le champion' and is, in fact, a semi-authentic reproduction of the 'team champion' colour scheme, but with some extra fancy decals and details. in any case, i can't wait until spring to ride it.
ok, enough about bikes. I have a show coming up at wavelength on sunday, march 23. i hope you can come out!
p.s. the show in london back in december was a party and a half. thanks to all you londoners who came out and got drunk and jumped around.
i live in toronto, canada. i make electronic music. i really like analogue synthesizers and drum machines. i have a myspace page, where you can listen to some of my music.
