Holy Chrome

by Buddy Peace



Sometime around 2008, while I was working on my 'Late Model Sedan' album, I started working on projects that had definite boundaries. I loved the idea of a 5 minute mix, or 1 minute track - a framework to operate within. These boundaries would later find their way into a lot of my work (like the 'You Don't Have To Do This...' series, or 'Present'), but this was the first project I made which was a very definite five minutes and out. Oh - actually I was making this series called 'Dirty Urban Birds' too, which was all 5 minute beats. Forgot about that one! This is kind of a follow on from that too. Of course!

I was listening to a ton of music concréte, chopped up old electronics from the 60's and tape manipulation stuff, which saw its way into this. It was definitely heavily inspired by that, but with a foundation of tough drums and edits.

It was released on Strange Famous Records as a lead-up to 'Late Model Sedan', back in the days when Facebook was either not about or in its infancy (I can't remember the boundaries of that happening!), and so SFR really did their thing in promoting and putting the word out. It was so great to be a part of what they were doing, and I'm eternally grateful for their support, love and efforts with everything I was involved with. It was a really golden time and I loved it, and I just wanted to have this project on here as it's a nice little jigsaw piece in the puzzle.

It was always a free download, so of course it is here. Let's take it back to the 00's! Hope you like, if you didn't catch it first time round.

"I planned to put this on each side of a 10 minute tape and sell them with handmade covers and cassette art and all that but in fact never got round to getting the tapes. I bought some - but they were 5 minute tapes and I couldn't do it. But it's still a finished project - it's pretty much in style with the D.U.B. series, just really edit-intensive stuff. I did all the edits by hand and all the sound oddities are edits and tests I did as I was going along. I think a lot of it had to do with the pent up-ness in me after the album. I didn't do a crazy amount of really math-core edits on that so I had a lot to get out of my system." - Buddy Peace
