A while ago I got asked to do a remix of a new track of Jan Liefhebber. Ofcourse I wanted to do that. Jan is known for his acid style. For me it was the first time to handle the freaky TB 303 sounds, because by some reason I avoided the bassline synthesizer in my productions. I think that is because I am more of a Moog guy. Matter of taste. It was a great honor to do a remix for Jan and a big pleasure to work with this style. I put the well known RAM IO ingredients in it, blended it all together and delivered a 7 minute hard industrial version of the track. Dave DB, another artist from the hardcore scene and doing more and more on techno was also invited to do a remix. That was cool. Dave and I get more and more involved in projects together. Thats because we have bothe the same hardcore background beside our love for techno I gues.
The release is on the 24th of september and is brought to you by Prescribed Trax from Los Angeles!
To celebrate this memorable drum machine day I’ve put a free samplepack online with over 120 different 808 kicks original recorded from hardware. And both original and processed through SSL hardware in combination with software clipping and distortions.

I have been following developments of AI since the arrival decades ago. Since it also finds applicability in music production, I investigate the possibilities, pros and cons with a very skeptical view.
At this moment I am working for Sony Music Entertainment on a research program and I am even more involved in this area in the background.
Now there has an article been published on the Bax Music website in which I introduce the possibilities and why, despite great enthusiasm, I remain very skeptical about the application of this technology in music production. The article is in dutch only, but it can be translated well to any language.
