Anyone here know this guy from chicago ? it's really cool.

I've been listening to his stuff since like 15 years now, and I never ever met someone who knew about him, he seems totally off the radar.

i've been doing a quick search on watmm but found nothing related to him here (maybe i'm wrong !! )

I did not checked it out since a few years and I just saw he still releases stuff.

you can download for free tons of their early stuff on the https://padk-rad.com

the style switched a bit from eclectic lo-fi electro to more soft tech/house oriented stuff since around 2010, when 2 of the 3 original band member left.

in the old releases, check out "401K-RAD", "UTLTY", "T12 CD", "coldwentmodem"

i remember finding the K-RAD stuff years and years and years ago and downloading some of what you mentioned...thought about it a couple years ago and was glad to see it was still online but the music just didn't hold up for me. there might be some gems in there of course, certainly brought back some memories at least.... i imagine some would be popular around here, that old school IDMish vibe

yeah you're right, i've been listening to the new stuff since my first post, very good production / sound but way more "normal" / not original.

glad to read you about it ?

      Something pretty spontaneous that came out of a slower track. 100 bpm. Reason10 for arrangement. oZone for stem mastering/effects. Just recently captured the _phuqr moniker. Been into the pulverized kick drums a lot lately, swingin around n the pan pot n what not. Track might get louder with more processing. Will be showcasing this track at an upcoming show in Chicago Aug 3rd. Some samples of samples hangin around in there captured from uChoob. #Snareup

      This is my first official independent musical release.
      This is a two track e.p. in the genre of hardcore dance with elements of dub and electronica.
      Mixed, mastered and conceived by yours truly.
      I have a ton of unreleased work that will be made available to stream and buy over time.
      Thanks to friends and family for all the support as I open this new chapter on my creative path.
      Huge thanks to @bobbyearly for script design and @zd3strd4 for Bandcamp page design and layout.

      Mutant Beat Dance has returned with their debut self-titled 25 track album, a record album booklet consisting of 6 records in 3 different formats of 12″s, 7″s and 10”, a CD and in digital formats.
      This concept has been in development since 2015 with over 200 minutes running time.
      The debut album from renegade trio Mutant Dance Beat (Traxx aka Melvin Oliphant, Beau Wanzer and Steve Summers) takes the wild and free sound of Chicago’s Music Box era into the 21st Century. Over twenty-five tracks the album mines an oft cited but rarely understood ground at the intersection of Post-Punk, Minimal Wave, Industrial, Disco Dub, EBM and proto-House / early-House. “Mutant Dance Beat.” is an epic journey into a classic American ideology that had its apex in Chicago.

      Inspiration strikes at surprising moments, when the light bulb flashes, the rest is history. Listen for the CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) samples embedded in this tune.
      Countless, countless hours spent crafting this track. The creation of this track was a mixture of pitfalls requiring tedious compositional revisions to harmonious, inconceivable synchronicities. Even now I feel there was never a real sense of resolve with this piece, at some point I just had to stop and let it go...
      Draws heavily from my "Ashland Orange Line" track, using similar drum-kit, pads and home-made fluorescent light samples. Was overall happy with the compression and equalization effects carrying this tune. Still learning.
      All original tracks above created using Reason8 Essentials strictly.
