Yearly Archives: 2004


God this baby lark takes up all of your spare time 🙂 Where did the last 12 weeks go ???

Anyway, my mate Colin from Messiah Syndrome has informed me that they are releasing a new EP (their fifth!) on 17th December.

Bad ass remixer

Got another message from Mary Pastorius about the remix…

“The remix is awesome – perfect – I love it. Definitely gonna use it… Wrote a bit about on my news page…”

And here’s an extract from the news page on the Queen Mary website.

“ALSO – an update on the SYNTHVOX comp. I’ve decided to go with one of my fave entries from the PLP remix contest – ScarKord. His original remix was already bad to the bone, but he’s tweaked it a bit since the contest – (upon my request… Jason, you are really too kind as I know I can be QUITE annoying 🙂 – and now it’s BAD ASS. The new remix with it’s ultra-funky new ending is utterly addicting… stay tuned for details on how to get your fix. 🙂 “

New addition

Music’s been put on hold for the moment, due to the birth of my son, Joshua Vine.
Joshua Vine
He was born on 9th September (3 weeks early) so he’s a Virgo just like his Dad!

All systems go

Got an e-mail from Mary Pastorius last night and it looks like the Queen Mary remix is a go! I’ve got to make a few tweaks to it, but it’s more or less finished now.

She likes it!

Got this message from Mary Pastorius, lead vocalist for Queen Mary and daugther of the late, great Bassist, Jaco Pastorius.

“I can’t remember if I contacted you personally to tell you how much I absolutely LOOOVE your remix. I listen to it just about everyday… I’m actually listening to it right now 🙂 I am considering using it as the QM track on the synthvox complilation and wondering what your thoughts are.”

Of course I was thrilled to bits at the prospect so got straight back to her to say I’m interested! I’ve already done a slightly extended version which I sent Mary earlier this week, so watch this space!

Time for the fear

Just for fun, I recorded a new track for the KVR Audio monthly contest. This month, the category was ‘Metel’ (sic). Definitely not my usual style of music, and I’m not 100% convinced my entry really qualifies. It does have guitars, distorted vocals and a high tempo, but I couldn’t resist adding some Aphex Twin style beats.

Enjoy (?)

New remixes

Completed two more new remixes – ‘Culture Vulture’ by Jesus Jones and ‘Nothing’ by Queen Mary.

The ‘Culture Vulture’ mix features some nice trance synth, breakbeats and vocoded vocals, whilst ‘Nothing’ is a darker affair with glitched vocals, drone synths and lovely cut-up basslines.

The Jesus Jones mix should be available on their website right about now.

The first ScarKord release!

One of my mixes has been selected for release!

The original version of ‘Losing’ was featured in the short movie ‘Burnt Sienna’ and the ‘Cheese Funk Remix’ will be a bonus track on the OST (Original Sound Track) CD !

More details soon.
