In 2003, I already felt I’d fallen into a rut with FruityLoops. And all the electronic music I was hearing seemed the same. Ironically, I thought I could push myself forward, sort of by going back.
This is a collection of personal experiments, of going back to basics (or in the case of the first track, back to “the original cliche” of repetitive, “intelligent” electronica), and trying to push myself in different directions.
Frequent exercises and experiments with FruityLoops, I put online in a “blog-like” format. Encouraging others to download and use these small seeds as the bases for their own remixes and compositions. Often they were simple rhythms, sometimes they grew into small sound-worlds.

The original beatblog has long gone, but I reran it for a while using Soup.io.
