emotional haiku

thepipe_Wee.jpg
You are a big mean
You made me very little
Why did you do that?

– live haiku (impressive and improvised) spoken by The Devon to me, April 2000
Vous etes un gros mechant
Vous m’avais fait(e) si petit(e)
Pourquoi avez-vous fait ca?
Tu es un gros mechant
Tu m’as fait(e) si petit(e)
Pourquoi as-tu fait ca?

– translated by The Amalia, Feburary 2005
by the way you can clicky on the image up there for a bigger one. i shot this yesterday whilst lost on a walk at lunch time on a washed-out trail that goes up the capilano river.

i feel like i should tell you


as you can see, the duck on the right is taller than the duck on the left. i do not know if either of these ducks have names. i like ducks!!* i must The Sleep. good night.

* do ducks dream? if i dream of flying, do ducks dream of sitting in offices and designing websites? hmmm. i like them regardless.

Obakeh – Ghosted (AFK’s Fully Spooked remix)

Charles (Obakeh, c79, Chompers) had these Peter Tosh samples and made a very cool dub tech-house track out of them and a number of other sounds that he put together. Habersham stepped in and did a fabulous tech dub which does the business on the dance floor. I did a progressive breaks remix that sampled the original drums and voices, but stepped in a slightly different and slightly epic breaks direction. The sleeve art is Charles himself making some statues on Mt. Doug in Victoria at sunset. I can’t remember when we were up there, but it was a while ago, maybe even before Pacific Front existed. I also did an ambient remix that we might put out some day as a PFR-X release, or maybe as part of a Storm Warning EP. Only time will tell..

what a weekend

davin_hush_feb05.jpg
an amazing weekend in victoria. it is nice to go with someone who likes to travel. it turns the normally mundane parts of the trip into the one of the highlights..
friday = dinner + drinks with the gang from work @ hugos. muchly good fun.
saturday = a wee bit o work stuff, some photography, coffee, shopping, dinner, and then hush.
wow. hush rules.
thank you to braeden and all @ hush for having me over for what will be remembered as a legendary weekend. i had a great time playing and everyone was up for the mad tunes. i’d been stoked to DJ with Braeden for a good while now since it always rocks when we’re DJing together and Saturday night was no exception.
thanks to those who stayed ’til the end — mind you the night went in a flash and was over before we knew it!
i apologize for the last track being cut off; it is the new Emerald Green tune and i would’ve liked to play the whole thing for you because it really is marvellous. unfortunately the management had to cut it off the sound system pretty early into it in order to clear out the bar. (it was well past 2 AM). next time!
it was particularly pleasing to see people go bonkers for the upcoming Pacific Front Recordings release – Formulate – Voice of Qi [Seed remix] .. talk about encouraging .. 10/10 crowd response.
i will post some of the pictures soon..

PFR presents SW001

After a year of planning, connecting, producing and remixing, it looks like we have a music label on our hands. And not a bad one either. Ambient, progressive house, tribal-tech, breaks and a lot in-between; the cohesion between the artists on Pacific Front Recordings is displayed rawly in this mix as it moves smoothly from style to style without missing a beat. Artists and remixers that span the shores of the Pacific — from the heat of Los Angeles, to the mist of Victoria and Vancouver and the far reaches of Melbourne, Australia. I don’t know what it’s like there, but I’d like to visit some time and tell you what the weather’s like.
Thank you to those who have supported us as we’ve been delivering the goods. Support has come from around the world — Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Portugal, Scotland, South Africa, Switzerland, UK, USA, Italy, Japan and more. Your support means a tonne to us and we’re really stoked that our music is finding its way to where you are.
The new mix ‘Storm Warning 001’ will debut on Proton Radio tonight at 10 PM PST and will kick off the series of mixed CD’s from Pacific Front Recordings.

who wants to hear some massive traxx?


that’s the 11″ x 17″ that is going up all over Victoria right now. wheeeeeeee! we’ll be making our way to the island on friday evening, 6 pm ferry most likely.
commander canes will be running with the boss sound, this saturday night at hush! (that’s me.)
i am so excited for this. it’s going to be radsauce. cd giveaways of my newest mix of super upfront Pacific Front Recordings choons and all.

magnet creatures

lil magnet creatures
i am mourning the possible loss of the magnet creatures. oh my!
this is post #900.
i think it’s going to be in point form at least right now.
i had a superb night last night working on a secret project. also went for a walk, and did a little photography. the interesting positions i get into when going for a shot (even with a flip out LCD) get me some attention, heh heh. last night it came in the form of an ambulence pulling over off of the highway to horseshoe bay, shining a spotlight at me for a few minutes and a worker cautiously approached me. no i was not dead, i wasn’t going to jump — he got closer and saw what i was doing and waved, grinned and ran off. haha, awesooome. i’ll post the picture i took later — it wasn’t anything super spectacular, just an overpass time exposure. the story is better than the shot.
imo.
okay so much for point form. back to work. byeeee!

I’ve watched the stars fall silent from your eyes
All the sights that I have seen
I can’t believe that I believed I wished
That you could see
There’s a new planet in the solar system
There’s nothing up my sleeve
I’m pushing an elephant up the stairs
I’m tossing up punchlines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground
And all this talk of time
Talk is fine
And I don’t want to stay around
Why can’t we pantomime, just close our eyes
And sleep sweet dreams
Being here with wings on our feet
I’m breaking through
I’m bending spoons
I’m keeping flowers in full bloom
I’m looking for answers from the great beyond
I want the hummingbirds, the dancing bears
Sweetest dreams of you
Look into the stars
Look into the moon
I’m breaking through
I’m bending spoons
I’m keeping flowers in full bloom
I’m looking for answers from the great, answers from the great
I’m breaking through
I’m bending spoons
I’m keeping flowers in full bloom
I’m looking for answers from the great, answers from the great, answers
