Meltdown 13 / 1992

Welcome back to the Meltdown series, this being number 13. It is presented in honor of our upcoming ZenDaze Halloween party which we decided (under the influence of much tequila) would be a rave. I have saved everyone the embarrassment (mine) that was Side 1 and am only posting Side 2. The happy piano-driven breakbeats was a short-lived moment in the Midwest rave scene, but it sure does bring back some of those more ecstatic memories. Enjoy!

Here is the mid-tempo Sunshower mix with original artwork.  And yes, the title was indeed inspired by Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band.  I believe I did this one in Colette’s basement in Chicago.  This was an exercise in keeping the pace at a casual jaunt, using rich textures, colorful instrumentation, and having a ‘Sunday afternoon in the park’ mood.  It’s one of those projects I felt turned out quite well from start to finish.  So enjoy a little Sunshower one sunny afternoon – bask yourself in its rays, soak it up, drink it in…Enjoy!

Live @ Stompy, San Francisco / 2000

Being here in San Francisco has inspired me to post this live set, recorded at the STOMPY party back in February of 2000.  I believe it was at the Barneveld space which had a nice warehouse feel with a delectable sound system.  These parties have a certain nostalgia for me, as it was my first SF gig in ’95 back when it was called Stompy Stomp.  This recording is extra special!  Aside from being raw and unedited, I challenge you to figure out why…

Enjoy!  And thanks to the entire STOMPY crew, both past and present!!
