about

This album features all the tracks I made before I switched to a macbook. Quite a lot of tracks are sadly enough not on this collective due to a few Hard Drive wiping crashes on my previous computer. Tracks are arranged from oldest (top) to newest (bottom). Dating from 2008 when I first started messing about to 2012. It took me 2 years just messing about and when I got Maschine in 2010 I started to get more serious with my music. The tracks on this album are how they were in their last state before I switched operating system, you'll notice some tracks are left unfinished and others could use some touch up but I no longer have the original project files because of previous hard drive crashes.

Enjoy the collective.

Track Name: Blessed
I'm blessed with the curse that I can't converse
To express myself I have to write down my words
Track Name: Circus
Life is like a circus, we're clownin' when the light's on,
Acting on the surface, no freaks when the crowd's gone,
Life is like a circus, we tiptoe down that tightrope,
Some fall down the low path but I'll take the high road.
