We live in an age of unbridled creativity. The combination of freely available software, processing power and the access to pretty much the entirety of human knowledge and artistic history, means that our horizons are endless. We can make anything and yet it seems that most often we use memes to make the same statement or joke.

I have no objection to the Be like Bill one in principle but seeing it so many times in so many different variations over the last few days did make me think that if he was real he would have had a complete personality collapse. I suppose its impossible to please all of the people all of the time

If you’ve had your eye on the Dataphiles Facebook and Twitter feeds, you might have noticed that I’m promoting a remix of Oliver Heldens and Shaun Franks Deep house anthem – Shades of Grey. Its part of a remix competition for Spinnin records. If you could take a moment out of your busy day to go and vote for it here … it would mean the world to me. Voting is only open for a limited time so please get those ballots in 🙂

I quite enjoyed doing the remix, (and also dressing up as deady bear to promote it/lovingly parody the original video) and I’m intending on doing more remixing in the future so let me know if there is anything you’d like to hear me rework.

Even though voting ends soon, I’m going to leave the track up as a free download on soundcloud, so grab a copy and enjoy.

Posted a new video on Youtube, its the ‘official’ video for Beep Beep Baby (not that the steampunk arcade machine vid featuring it wasn’t fun). I found some great old black and white footage of vintage dance routines, burlesque performances and animations, cut it all together and Robert’s your mother’s brother. I’m quite proud of the results & feel it fits the overall feeling of the track. The cut up dances reflecting the cut up swing samples that form the backbone of the track.

My girlfriend first described the break of this track sounding like people honking (flirtatiously) at a girl, dancing in the street (and hence came up with the name Beep Beep Baby). It was great to find some appropriate film footage to recreate that vision during this part of the track. The internet archive is truly an amazing place.  Bonus marks if you can spot all of the original clips on there. Some of them are hilarious (and perhaps slightly worrying) to watch nowadays, I’d particularly recommend ‘In my Merry Oldsmobile’ and ‘Gags and Girls’, I wonder if they’d remake them today 😛

Also I used Blender as a video editor for the first time for this (hell, I didn’t even know it was a video editor before now, I’d only ever used it for a bit of 3D animation before). As ever, it has a pretty steep learning curve but it is incredibly powerful and quite satisfying, once you’re in the zone. It’s by far and away the best open-source/free video editor I’ve used. So big props to all of the guys and gals who have made its development possible.

Anyway hope you enjoy the video, please like, comment and/or subscribe.

Hello everyone,

Even during my year of hell, I was still making music. In fact at some times it felt like it was what was keeping me sane (well, relatively).

Anyway here is my first upload of it to the download page. Three tracks one chiptuney, one glitchy, and one electro-y. So here we go

If you’re always on the music discovery sites you may have noticed that Shem and Nk Cell have been on the lovely Soundcloud for a while, Lotus V is brand new. As part of my uploading spree I’m going to do a bit of restructuring of my profiles on music discovery sites, use different ones for different purposes.

Back to the mastering then…

Love and Peace

Yes the day has finally arrived. A week before it goes on general release, you can hear my debut album – The Vibe Electric right here on dataphilesmusic.com. Also as promised, you can download a free standard quality version for a limited period, so be quick.

The free stream will be on the download page forever though … because everyone deserves music

Love and Peace

I just loaded a new effect ensemble ensemble to the Reaktor user library . Don’t let its calming blue appearance fool you, its a dirty one – basically made for destroying the input sound and turning it into crusty rhythms or odd soundscapes

All good fun then

Love and Peace
