About Me

im a west australian electronic based artist from perth. ive messed up sounds now for about 20 years and have contributed to a number of projects past and present within the local scene. ive joined forces with two local artists LD120+CEPHLON to create GODLIKE.COM.AU which over the next year should become a west coast based digital label. the aim of our game is to promote artists that are developing there own sound rather than following set styles,i know perth has many artists who are square pegs in round holes around established styles and scenes of dance music and im sure these are the people who can give the west coast electronic scene a true original sound of its own. thats the initial intentions for the three of us to expand out from. myself and the label are keen to interact with artists producing what i call headtronics, music thats for the head as much as it is for the dance floor or stadium, maybe shift a bit more from minimal to the over-ground maximal.

Listening To Right Now

TOP10 ALBUMS:VIOLATOR,depeche mode:ORBUS TERRARUM,the orb:RISOTTO,fluke:ANIMALS,pinkfloyd:ABBY ROAD,beatles:ORBITAL,insides:X+Y,coldplay:ZOOROPA,u2:YEAR ZERO,nine inch nails:MEZZANINE,massive attack. these are 10 albums that i find myself returning to time after time, i could probably add another 10 or 20 more to that list including radioheads albums to this date. ive just got j.m.jarres oxygen prt7-13 which i quite like and im just discovering the chemical brothers album we are the night, which i loved from the first play, i hav'nt been listening to as much music in the last 4 or 5 years because ive been producing for GODLIKE productions but im more for function over fashion in my tastes. id rather remember a good artist/s than follow a music style, that has made it a bit harder to find a good new electronic artist and/or be one. everything else has got easier{and cheaper} tho. tis a good time 4 creating......
