About Me

Greetings my fellow conscripts. It is I, the anomaly. A trace whisper of an era gone by, but still remains. Like an empty shell, it has forgotten itself. Like I, at times allow my thoughts to wander. Though, the music always drags me back. Kicking and screaming. Back to the center of myself. The essence of my soul is the groove. The very being of my nature revolves around positive vibrations.

The music I create is a reflection of that state of being! It yearns to grab hold and not let go until you're left sweating!! It hungers to take over the frequency of the dance floor!!!

Message me if you want to exchange IM screen names (Yahoo, MySpace, IM, MSN), cool?

My Influences / Fav Artists

I'm not doing the show currently...
(Previous edit)- This is now held by artists that I feature on my 'unofficial' Looperman Radio show. That I have and will be posting here-

( http://blog.myspace.com/donniev1 ).

So if you're an active participating member of the site/community, or if you're kind/cool enough to leave me a review, and/or I find your music to be A) Downloadable and B) good (IE, groovy, dancy, gritty, edgey, heavy, bangin, boomin, movin, creatively experimental, and genuine) chances are I'll- Fav/Sav/Rev/Feat. Cool? Cool! Adios amigos!

My Music Sounds Like

Off-the-wall, different, generic, mediocre, crap, minty pickles, among other things people have said (or the voices in my head have whispered). I'm a fan of experimentation and fusing different styles together.
The best way to really answer this is to urge you to check out my tracks here or read over some of the comments that have been left on them. One of the reviews which stands out to me that isn't on here is...

*BioCarbon 13's comment on my song O-zone Version 2 on myspace back in '05 (not verbatum, but as close as I can recall)- 'Very interesting and nicely done. It reminds me a bit of the way ____ (blanking on the name, but the keyboardist for Depeche Mode) of DM sounded in his early days!'
