The You Tube channel has had the dust knocked off and playlists organized, Emerging spring also draws my camera back into the light of day. Between studio time and garden duties, it’s time to get working on a few video projects now that the seat and the tears of the new album settles down.

As the winds of March have blown through to April’s showers my indoor studio time winds down. Before I depart to embrace the sunlight of spring I wanted to share and pay due to the uptempo and downtempo releases that have been audio company for the last few weeks.
Seeking digital streams where content and community come together, over the past few months The Beatrix Generation has become available on different streaming sites; Jango, LastFM and Earbits as well as the Hip Hop leaning, but open to new electronica, Audio Mack. These one-stop audio drops offer free and premium streaming services that let you hear the latest independent music no matter the genre.
The Beatrix Generation is a product of 5 years of wood-shedding, leaving the city’s edge and going country with music as mate. Five years chopping wood, planting kale, writing beats and looking for harmony, finding it laced to rhythms born under full moons, inside early dawn jams and woven into late night keyboard solos. Whenever I caught a groove I followed it. Through that journey I found myself reconnecting to a lifetime of listening, sometimes leading me to the sonic palettes of Bluetech, Amon Tobin, The Heliocentrics and Leila Bloom amongst many. The Beatrix Generation is an electric and organic groove-driven snapshot of a musical time and place, born from both synth and soul.
