Recently I began a series of live studio performances from HBL Studios for platforms such as Beatport and Carl Cox’s Awesome Soundwave. Over the coming weeks I will be continuing the series with some follow up broadcasts and behind the scenes videos. I’ve been using this time to develop a deeper understanding of the machines in my studio and how they can be used in a live environment in an improvised way.
In this clip I am live sequencing with a Roland TR-909 and a Korg Electribe drum machine. The 909 is running as the master clock/sync in my studio at the moment. By doing so I feel I am putting its step sequencer and trademark swing to full use. I’ve really enjoyed spending time with this machine over the past 8 weeks.
