Oh god, here we go again...

I'm going through another phase of my body-clock deciding to spaz out on me as of recent, and I haven't seen daylight at all today...
On the bright side, however, I've been working on some music for a second release (yes, the one after the first one which isn't complete yet, but gimme a break!). This second release will be entirely made on my current setup, as opposed to the first album, which is about 85% Sonar/PC based.
Of course, lots more to come, but here's a taster clip of my most recent activity:

Okay, I'mma try sleep some. I've taken enough Valerian root to tranquilise a great whale for several days, so all going to plan, I SHOULD get a good sleep. I hope.

Welcome back

I've started this blog, as momentum is finally picking up on my musical project, Rogue Process, along with a bit of a change of direction, in that I'm finally accepting some outside help, in the shape of Ali McDonald, vocalist for Livingston-based hardcore/punk band Redundant.

In the blog, there will of course be info about the day-to-day goings on within the project, as well as various musings from myself, probably including stuff about various bits of musical gear, my college course, other UK-based industrial/electro acts, and pretty much anything else under the broad spectrum of 'stuffs dat i liek' music-wise.

To kick things off, here's a remix I've been working on recently for my mate Phil's project 'Anowrexiya'. It's sans-vocals currently, and there are certain elements I'm going to change before it gets committed to .aiff, but it should give you a pretty reasonable idea of what to expect from the finished product:

In other news, Ali and myself should be meeting up on Thursday to record some vocal tracks, so all going to plan, there should be a lot of new stuff to show very soon :)
