I formed 'Electrip' in 1999. I started playing psychedelic/garage style tracks with a acoustic drum-kit, electric guitar with a couple of pedals (distortion & chorus), bass guitar and a yamaha home keyboard which I fed through a cheap radio shack delay unit.
A year later I got my first computer and played around with samples and soft-synths. Over the years I've put together a small studio with hardware and software.
I currently use Ableton Live and Reason sequencers, Native Instruments software. On the hardware side I use Korg and Novation synths and Roland V-Drums.
Now I work on sample and Reason ReFill collections inbetween psychedelic and electronic experiments.
Mid 2000 - Recorded album "Crimes of the Future" (10 tracks) - Psychcedelic/Garage Rock experiments
Late 2000 - Recorded album "Computer Retro" as artist 'Volume One' (10 tracks) - Sample based techno/drum n bass recalling music of the mid 90's
Late 2000 - Recorded album "Adventures in the Forbidden Zone" (13 tracks) - Shorter electronic pieces combining samples, synths and guitar
Early 2000 - Recorded several tracks as artist 'Pop Idle'
Mid 2002 - Recorded album "Transistor" (7 tracks) - Purely electronic abstract works, includes ambient, drum n bass and noise elements.
Mid to Late 2003 - Completed work on "By Night" (1 track) - An electronic story piece of work using many synthesizer styles
Early 2005 - Recorded "Demo Tracks" (14 tracks) - Vocal and sample album in a lighter mood, influenced by The Bran Flakes
Mid 2005 - Recorded album "Untitled Playlist" (11 tracks) - An album of many contrasting styles, hence the title :)
I am influenced by most musics but I mostly listen to electronic, psychedica and german progressive rock.
