Dogs on the Moon

Gotta love these happy dogs leaping through a Montreal winter snow covered moon like landscape. Had to dig deep to find a track to match the cold windswept terrain and primal dog enthusiasm for snow and remembered “Ritual”, a track I recorded a couple of years ago with a laid back downtempo beat and dubbed out echoing analog beacon calling across the planet with positive vibrations.

Listen to the full track here…


Smank Rocker

It’s cold and snowy outside so warm up with this steamy acid ice road trucker. Smank Rock is an unstoppable analog rocker from your friendly neighborhood Insomniak featuring some rude Korg Mono/Poly tweaking, a ripping x0xb0x acid line and a stomping beat.

Spaced Out 80s Library Records Mix

This all vinyl DJ mix features driving intergalactic late 70s and early 80s synthesizer music from some recently acquired, somewhat exotic production library records.

Production or Library music is royalty free music created to be used in film scores, TV shows, commercials and radio jingles. Although destined for commercial use much of this music is far from conservative and represent cutting edge sounds of the times. As you will hear many of these jams probe deep in to the future with their creative use of vintage synthesizers and advanced studio experimentation while other tracks kick back with vintage jazz and funk grooves.

I named this mix Bibliotheque, the French word for “Library” because the majority of these tracks are from French production houses with a few from the UK as well. Labels include KoKa Media,RCA Media, Spectrum Mood Library and Bruton Music.

Mixing was a challenge as these records are new to me and contain many tracks each with lots of jingles less than than a minute long. Being made for commercial use there were often descriptive track names that describe the mood and tempo which helped find the right track on the fly. There was no time to make a track list but I am happy with this selection that shows off a wide range of cool old school library tracks. Enjoy this mix of rarely heard vinyl and be taken away to a retro 80s sci-fi dramatic adventure through time and space from the big screen and late night TV.

Taking a step away from my usual style and leaving the Insomniak beats at home for this heavy evolving drone track with tribal rituals to guide and torment your journey. Headphones are recommended for maximum sensory indoctrination of the Martian Meat Machine.
