Decatur Funk / Lionel Up!

I’ve been so busy I haven’t posted anything from my new instrumental electronic / hip hop album that came out in April.  Fresh Beet Suite is a collection of songs I composed on my Triton keyboard over the years.  I kept them very minimalist to keep the original charm and vibe of the times when they were written.

Some of the 30 songs were recorded in Athens, Lawrenceville, Morganton, Asheville and Atlanta.  Basically everywhere I’ve lived for the last fifteen years.   The album starts with “Decatur Funk”, a slow rolling hip hop beat, and quickly moves into the upbeat 80’s dance inspired “Lionel Up”.  From there it meanders through 27 more tracks that are basically all over the place in musical styles.

Thanks for listening!

June 1st “It’s in the Soup”

June is popping in a little funky.  I don’t know where this one came from but I kind of like it.   It kind of takes me back to my ‘Dre Days’ producing rap music in Athens, Georgia.    It’s funny I never really rapped ever even though I could have.  I actually feel kind of confident doing it now.  Probably because I can do anything to fill my song a day option and blame it on that.   I do seem to inflect a Doctor Dre type style to my raps however.    My calling card back in the day was that I always had an upright piano to add to the beat to give it a really signature sound.   This is all Korg Triton on this one though.

Thanks for listening!!
