Bitbasic – Meek

On Meek album Simon Haycock aka. Bitbasic once again jazzes up Glitch and juggles with IDM. For the first time he addresses Future Garage alongside folky and foresty Electronica to the audience. His third album on rec72 is manifesting his straight forward distinctiveness with 11 songs for free download. Thanks to David Drake for designing the iconic cover art.

With Bitbasic’s Meek album, we are also celebrating the 50th release in our label history!

Download Meek

Meek album was origanally produced for the RPM Challenge 2012 (35min or 10 songs) in which Bitbasic took part. This time, he set a few different rules:

I was not allowed to commit anything to a timeline, and had to play the whole album by triggering clips in Ableton using my monome, playing live keyboard, and applying midi automation on the fly with sliders. This gives the album much more of a live feel, and was refreshing to get away from the typical DAW timeline.

Only “Halway Hut” was added for the current album. All music has been recorded to2-track tape over the course of one long and exhausting day. The tape was digitised later on, unedited as it gives the album it’s characteristic ruggedness, and constant warmth, Bitbasic describes.

    […] Auf rec72 gibt es ein neues CC-Release, diesmal von Bitbasic, einem Künstler von dem ich noch nie zuvor gehört habe. Aber musikalisch passt das soweit ganz gut, schönes, teils auch experimentelles Elektrogefrickel. Wenn ich das richtig verstanden habe, dann ist das Album mehr oder weniger live eingespielt worden, also durch live ausgelöste Ableton-Live-Clips, live aufgenommene Midi-Automation und live gespielte Keyboards. Während der Session wurde alles auf Band aufgenommen und anschließend wieder digitalisiert, was dann für den kernigen Sound gesorgt hat. Da hat sich jemand viel Mühe gegeben und ich meine, es hat sich gelohnt. […]
