From Scratch to Sprinkles

A couple remixes I cooked up are now available (again) for listening and/or other forms of consumption — and in context at that!

1) Mick Sleeper continues his deeeeeep Scratch Perry podcast with an episode collecting a number of remixes of Scratch recordings, including my mashy take on “Bird in Hand,” which brings together a classic from Return of Super Ape and the Bollywood song from which, perhaps a little implausibly, it obviously / audibly took its inspiration. Hear it in context here.

2) Boston’s best toypiano studio wiz, Twink, has put together an entire CD of remixes of his quirky, brittlesweet symphonies, including — alongside fixes and twitches by the likes of Mochipet — my own attempt at a hopped-up, Dutch-bubbling, Boston-bouncy dubble dub. (Buyable.)


I'm a techno-musicologist, internet annotator, imagined community organizer.

I left my <3 in the digital global, but I reside in Cambridge, MA, where I'm from.

I represent like that.
