Gravious Archives Vol. 4

In what is at risk of becoming an annual tradition, it’s time for another early Christmas present from the depths of the Gravious Archives.

On volume 4, a couple of tunes from the Gravious Mixtape Part 5:
A – Van Allen (2012)
B – Zion Razor (2012)

Download a zip file of both tracks here (23mb)

Both these tracks were started in 2011 and finished off in early 2012 in time for the fifth edition of my mixtape.

Van Allen starts off on a squelchy acid 303 tip, and progresses through into some rolling breaks and busy electro pads and synths. It’s also named after the radiation belts around the Earth fact-fans.

Zion Razor takes a more dubbed-out route, building up drum patterns over some vocal samples, and then dropping into a more four-four rhythm to take it home. Trivia: the name of this was semi-inspired by the space Rastas in William Gibson’s Neuromancer, and their name for mercenary extraordinaire Molly Millions. So there you go.

Anyway, enjoy, and Merry Christmas! Follow me on twitter, @GraviousMusic or Facebook for more occasional releases, news, gigs and more.

Happy New Year all!

I’ll be kicking off 2015 in style, with a live set at the Mash House in Edinburgh on Saturday 17th January. On the 17th, excellent Edinburgh soundmongers Paradigm are hosting multi-medium moguls Decagram in what looks like it should be a real belter of night. Hope some of you can make it along!

Sound from yours truly, as well as Flock, Matthew Collings, Trudatsound, Kenny Breaks and Bill Spice. Doors 10pm. Full details here.

Not only that, I have a host of never-heard before material to test out. Looking forward to it already…

Free archives track: Intex Systems & Ezeekil – Transfer (Gravious Remix)

It’s the time of the year when a long history of co-opted pagan rituals gets us thinking about giving gifts to our nearest and dearest.

After an interminably long break this has once again got me digging around in the dusty depths of the Gravious Archives for some old favourites.


So without further ado, please help yourself to an old bit from back in 2007. The original by Intex Systems (aka ASC) and collaborator Ezeekil, and came out on Vaccine recordings. 7 years later I still get asked about this one, so hopefully some of you will appreciate this tidied up but otherwise unadulterated version for your listening pleasure!

A live mix from the archives!

So, you may have noticed that it’s been a bit quiet round here recently. Actually, that’s not really the sort of thing you notice is it!

Well Gravious HQ is currently in refurb mode, and my studio is currently a building site, which has not left much room in my life for music stuff of late.

Thankfully, everything should be back to (better than) normal by the end of next month. Woo!

In the meantime, there are a few recordings lurking in my hard-drive that I’ve been meaning to share on a rainy day. Living in Scotland, it’s a wonder I haven’t shared them already…

Anyway, part one of the studio refurb archives sessions is a live set I performed at an Oxjam (the music offshoot of Oxfam) event at Glasgow’s CCA in November 2009.

Tracklist as follows:
1. Erik XVI – Gravitationskraftens stilla vrede (Gravious Anti-Gravity Mix) [Highpoint Lowlife]
2. World of Tomorrow [Highpoint Lowlife]
3. Cascade [Saigon]
4. Jupiter Jazz [Highpoint Lowlife]
5. Omo Delta [Unreleased]
6. City of Spheres [Broken Bubble]
7. Deepchild – Wannado (Gravious Remix) [Sub Continental Dub]
