Originally, this page was an additional outlet for my SoundCloud account. However, my remixes/re-edits eventually got me in hot water, so now this is more your normal personal place.

My professional background includes a Ph.D. in History (my dissertation dealt with Chile in the nineteenth century), a M.A. in International Studies (thesis on world music and copyright), several years broadcasting at non-commercial radio stations and retailing music, as well as a scary summer of DJing at weddings and middle school parties.

"Just Teardrops To Me" (Cold Duck’s S.O.S. Band Pass)

One day I was listening to The xx and it suddenly sounded like they’d sampled “Just Be Good To Me” by the S.O.S. Band to create backing beats for their version of “Teardrops.” I decided to try a mash-up of the two songs, but quickly discovered that the drum patterns of the two are quite different, even though they have a similar timbre. So, I rearranged the beats in “Just” so they’d fit “Teardrops,” pulled some handclaps and a synth swell out of the S.O.S. Band’s track as well, and dubbed all this into “Teardrops.” Re-sample and process parts of The xx and, boom!, a nice dubby remix of “Teardrops.” [“Teardrops” was written and originally performed by Womack & Womack.]
