Blog Report: Setbacks

Hey there,

So for those who have been following the social media accounts under my name these past few months, you may have been hearing about attempts to put a band together along with the delays to N0_HER0ES and the release of Project Nightmare: Link to Future Past.

Well, we got some updates for you.

-First is the band. Setback is an understatement. It's now all the way back to the start. Lost two members of the band due to time commitments and such in the past week alone. So now this attempt has fallen face-flat and there's nothing I can do at this point in time. It's either try and figure this out or just recognize this ain't happening. Which sucks.

-Second is the mixtape. That has been hit with a few setbacks, specifically not having enough time to record as of late and potentially debating about HOW to release it. There was an idea to split it in 2 parts, but I think the pacing and emotion of it would be a stark contrast in parts. One part is cheery, the other is dark. It sounds like it could work but does it work? I'll be spending the next week or so listening to a variety of tracklists on my iPod to see what fits and if there's a danger of overload.

At this rate, the window for release is between September and December. So really, this is wide open right now. Very wide open. Depends on recording, the tracklist, and the decisions to be made.

-Third is Link to Future Past. For something rushed (just look at the album art), it wasn't half bad. I kinda left it open for a follow up, so who knows, maybe it'll happen.

More updates to come on the social media links. Stay tuned.

Blog Report: The Tell-All

Hey everyone,

Been a few months since I last spoke, but it's been a crazy elevator for awhile now, that has finally stabilized itself and gets ever so close to it's destination.

So let's start with the big one: N0_HER0ES. The mixtape is missing one song (which I'm working on right now) and I do have some plans for it. The lyrics are done. So I guess the next two months are recording this bad boy and finalizing some things here and there. Specifically guests and what the strategy for making this all stick will be.

I know that, for the past two years, this project has been my life, and while it has taken forever to realize, and even went through a mid-stream realignment...I'm proud of it. And I like how this has been played close to the chest and nothing has been spilled about it so far, keeping a sense of mystery that is missing in today's internet-infused world.

Project Nightmare Evolution : How It All Came Together (And Nearly Fell Apart)


After the launch of Project Nightmare 36(5) last year, there was a lull. The year-long production cycle of 36(5) was over, and it was more of a relief for me, because the project didn't wind up being a manic rush to the finish line like the majority of the series has been.

I was trying to find the next twist in the series. What's going to change this series for the better? What stylistic change will be the best and not the one that compromises it?

While I pondered it, mired in the still-ongoing production of N0_HER0ES and various remixes and reinventions (including a spell as DEF 85), I allowed influences to enter my circle and began to ponder, what is the one thing I haven't done?

What's so new about New Years?

Hey hey!

So it's 2014. And obviously, it's a new year, happy new year.

Now that's out of the way. Let's get to the down and dirty.

2014 is going to be a year of changes. Some of them well over-due, others a bit harder.

To start, the production of N0_HER0ES is mostly coming to a head as of next week. Tracking all the solo songs next week and trying to squeeze in the 2 guest verses as well. The beats have been totally finalized, some songs have been cut in length and things have been added to it. A couple of road tests (specifically, collaborator feedback) and some songs were good but needed to get better. So the delays have helped...somewhat.

Also, a note about the song "The Story"...I'm scouting for someone to take over the role of guest vocalist for that song (original choice dropped out last month). Obviously I'm willing to sacrifice a timely release in exchange for the songs being presented as they should be. Could lead to some interesting possibilities.

On that note....there's a few other things at hand. One of them being...Project Nightmare.

By now, you may have already seen or heard the new installment, Evolution. If you have, I thank you for it. I had a lot of fun staying up till 4AM last night finishing that for your pleasure!

Ahem. Exhaustion notwithstanding, I think there's a good chance that Nightmare 7 (yes, I've already thought about it)...will probably be a ways off. However, a follow-up to Evolution, (R)Evolution is in the works,and this one...ooh boy it's a doozy.

Remixes. By friends. This could be bad or really good.

Ok, the negative post wasn't needed. But yeah, that's one of the many changes bound to happen, along with a few others I can't say right now...or maybe I can.

OK, so this entire "start a band for shows" thing didn't work. At all. I'm very frustrated at it.

So I need a solution. Either this goes all-supergroup and becomes low commitment with a finite number of shows planned for 2014 with the band (hint: count on one hand) or we keep on grinding trying to find a solution, or just say screw this and go back to the PA and myself bullcrap everyone else does.

Sorry, I'm trying to craft my own lane here. Don't mind me...

Ahem. More negative postings.

What I really meant to say was that if it happens, odds are it won't be all that often.

OK, that's all I have for now. Happy New Year, we out.
