11th April – upgrade – testing phase and downtime @orbitalband #orbital

Published by under Blog,daily,Loopz

We are now in the testing phase of the server upgrade for the Loopz upgrade. This should improve performance and remove occasional functional problems.

During the swap over, there will be some downtime but hopefully this will be minimal. I will naturally announce when we are live and we can have a beer together, to celebrate another milestone for Loopz.

January 28th – Happy Birthday Punky #longrange #orbital @philhartnoll


Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter whose nickname is Punky. When she was as little as 2, she inspired me to pen out an electronic track, which was given the same name. Longrange then help rework this into the track below. She still feels a little embarrassed about this, but I hope she understands how important she was and still is in my life 🙂

January 25th – Loopz – Day Before – 10 years today #loopz #electronic

Published by under Blog,daily,Loopz,Music

So it’s the day before my birthday but in 2004, I wasn’t sitting here waiting for the football and writing up a quick blog entry. Instead I wrote the main guts of my, at that time, 2nd track.

As those who know me would say, my music is a little strange and back then I was experimenting with technology to try and sound different. This is one of those tracks. I finished around a month later and it appeared in a zine, a Brummie complication album and a few demo CD’s I gave to various people. There was a short sample online as well but until recently I kept it back because I never was 100 percent happy and other stuff.

So day before my Birthday in 2014, I decided to PR a track I completed 10 years ago.

here is the tag I wrote when I first uploaded this over a year ago – “It was the day before my birthday but maybe something else…”. Enjoy…if you can.
