Hello, so I have not written in here in ages although I've been listening to tracks in the down-tempo, glitch, electronic, avant garde styles for the winter. Today I need to bake bread and was scanning through ITunes through the hip hop genre. I saw some playlist I downloaded awhile ago from here with a track by The Insider.
Click for a listen. This. This is what I want to listen to. It's a bit glitchy, dancey, rhythmic. Some songs feel like you're on a beach at sunset and it's still 28 degrees outside, perfect. Other songs remind me of dancing on drugs in a dark cave surrounded by sweaty bodies writihing on a dance floor sparkled with neon lights across what seems like void space.
Instead of dancing, writhing, and feeling like it's July I'm going to spend some quality time in my kitchen baking bread while this Pacific Northwest storm passes over the city. Cold, dreary days, time to heat up with these tracks.

Composer, musician, engineer, and producer Jonah Dempcy has arrived at the Free Music Archive, and his body of work here runs the gamut from jazz, nu-jazz, hip hop, to house. Most of Mr. Dempcy's work is instrumental and very well suited to repurposing as soundtracks in video projects.
He made a splash in the world of copyleft licensing and free online music with his project Revolution Void several years ago. In Revolution Void, Dempcy combined electronic music with live modern jazz improvisation by both Dempcy and noteable jazz performers, such as Seamus Blake (Mingus Big Band), Matthew Garrison (Herbie Hancock), Lucas Pickford (Brian Blade), Dave Hill, Jr. (Jettatura), and James "Roto" Rotondi (The Grassy Knoll, Air). Four releases from that project are now on the FMA.
Other Jonah Dempcy projects have also been added. Dempcy's solo jazz piano album SYNCRETIC BELIEFS features his original modern jazz compositions. ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE OF WAX is a fun, beat packed album by The Insider, a hip hop project led by Dempcy. He is also half of the Seattle house duo UltraCat alongside Yuriko Miyamoto. Two UltraCat EPs can be found on the FMA now, as well.
