What they call music these days

Misinformation Housing Estate


Listen to 'Misinformation Housing Estate' and join me in a collective head-scratch/head-butt at the self-inflicted wound of Brexit. I'm not the best at articulating my disdain at the decline of the UK, but I channeled my mind-puke into 2 minutes of barely concealed rage about how we all got fooled (some more than others).
My snowflakey voice wouldn't cut it for such a venture, so I enlisted Ben from First Family Riot, who did it with aplomb (I don't know what aplomb is, but I'm sure its a fitting description).

One of the poorest paid gigs I got (not to mention terrible working conditions) was creating the music for my son's recent YouTube video. Seems it's gone all viral-ly after being featured on NOS Jeugdjournaal (imagine John Craven's Newsround but with less sweaters and more liberal use of the word 'fuck').
Anywayz, my knowledge of urban beats stretches as far as The Anfield Rap, but I tried my best to help the boy out. He has to live with this...

Mother Pukka

Mother Pukka
I was commissioned by my old chums at Mother Pukka to do a 'bed' for theirpodcast. Basically a piece of music wallpaper that they can disrespect by talking all over. Like pearls for the swine, this job. Anywayz, they wanted something 'groovy and northern-soul-esque'. Instead they got this funky effort (which in itself is not from my usual palette of musical strokes).
It now forms the bedrock of their top quality podcast and is quite possibly the reason why its up in the top downloads charts on a regular basis.

You can play/download below and perhaps use it as an audio backdrop for your own potty mouthed views on producing kids.

Null Structures Remixes
So let's take some of those tracks and stick them in a magical remix box that spurts out some refreshing re-takes of 'Null Structures'.
'UVB-76' has become fair perky and the creeping gentleness has been replaced by a grinding, relentless groove.
'Data Burst' comes in dreamy ambient or uplifting house flavours. Take your pick.
'Good Morning Sun' is coated in glitter and sparkles in a new shiny light like reading your iPhone first thing in the morning.


Null Structures

‘Null Structures’ by We Are OK – Electronic melodies and atmospheres influenced and containing the sounds of the infamous shortwave radio ‘number stations’ of the cold war era and beyond. Legend has it that the broadcasts ranged from containing coded messages to spies to implicit instructions that if the broadcast could no longer be heard at a certain time then the listener would know that the transmitting party had a suffered a nuclear attack and a suitable military response was then required. They included the British Intelligence Service’s ‘Lincolnshire Poacher’ and the mysterious Russian ‘UVB-76’ (broadcasting from 1973 to current).

Subscribers to Apple Music and Spotify can now stream the album from the below links:

We Are OK is Amsterdam based musician/composer Matt J Brown.

He rides a bike while listening to music. And that’s dangerous.
