Bring Me Joy

Bring Me Joy

Seriously uplifting euphoric hard dance.

Bring Me Joy - Multi-Store Link

Although this turned out practically happy-hardcore adjacent, it started with a (maybe surprisingly?) much darker vibe – I think it turned out the right way, reflecting in the melody what the words were saying.

The new single is accompanied with “The Exchange (Hard House Mix)“, a ravey hard house remix of a favorite from Existential Funk.

Speaking in Tongues/Shrieker

Two solid hard dance tracks back to back.

Speaking in Tongues/Shrieker - Multi-Store Link

The premier track on this one is “Speaking in Tongues”, a hard, fast slice of hard dance which draws a lot of influence from psytrance. I suppose this follows a thread I started with The Gateless Gate but with a little more gas.

The B-side “Shrieker” has a little different energy, but doesen’t underwhelm; this bouncy hard house track has an equally dark vibe with a bit of modern “donk” which will give your subwoofer a workout.

Beats by the pound.

The “random beats” series (the namesake of this site) was a collection of Karl D productions which were intended to be a more stripped-down standard of music production than full length albums and single releases. This series spanned 61 tracks across 5 volumes, at 2 hours, 30 minutes of music. Although the domain name preceded the series, it provided the inspiration for the nameless tracks, focusing on the music itself.

pseudorandom is a curated collection of the series, focusing on 14 standout productions (according to yours truly). The release of this compilation offers these tracks in the highest quality ever available.

Deep-rooted sounds across the electronic spectrum.

life.remixed is sort of a spiritual sequel to Existential Funk. This is the only other LP release I ever did; the ideas here are as big as the sound. All the tracks had a lot of production put into them, and cover a lot of ground. In a lot of ways this is a more mature album than Existential Funk
