Bonus Round favourite, Michael Forshaw recorded a mix for the label's website,
I feel very humbled to see the mix consists of all Luke's Anger tracks (plus some remixes)! There's a few unreleased bits in there too , not sure if they'll ever see the light of day.. Maybe as a free EP?
Just picked up an OP-1, only had it for a day and already seeing some crazy possibilities with this little box!
Basically it's a rather quirky synth, sampler and drum machine, with a 4-track tape recorder in one tiny and very portable box. The initial appeal for me was the monstrous 16-hour battery life, which makes it perfect for knocking out beats and ideas whilst travelling or waiting around in airports, hotels etc.
A lot of the features are deliberatly cut down, for example the synths only have a few 'tweakable' parameters, but suprisingly nice results can be coaxed out of it very quickly and with minimal effort.
Oh yeah, another bonus which rocks is it has an in-built FM radio which you can grab samples from, this feature alone has kept me entertained all evening!
Stay tuned for some audio noodling and radio mangling in the coming weeks ;)
