After seeing this video of rock legend Iggy Pop shitting himself about the music of the times I felt inspired to sample him.
Small vid clip of me making the track.
I set up my modular synth and created this with the sample if Mr pops melt down in the..

I wanted to share my 2009 site and free DL of my 2010 release.
If you have some time check out the site. I am very proud of the programing that went into this and would love to share : LoFi Freq 2009 site!
Free Download: The Lofi Freq – Mics & Machines – 2010
The music LoFi Freq produces is about subtlety and innovation. Influenced as much by circuit bent Casio keyboards as by modular synthesizers, LoFi Freq’s sinuous beats create bubbling soundscapes that unfurl and modulate into an often base-heavy broken beat pulsing with the saturation of gritty effects and supple layering. A heady combination of old school finesse and new school filtering, LoFi Freq is just as interesting to watch live as he is to listen to.
LoFi Freq leaves no I/O patch untried or frequency unaltered.
“I spent a lot of time wandering around LA recording industrial sounds and machinery. From industrial sewing machines to welding and rivet work I recorded tons of samples.” – FreQ
I was messing around with my macro set up and made this…
Also a fun track i made
2015 has been a crazy fun year in music for me.
Besides building my new 12u modular system and expanding my studio I have had a number of interesting projects. This is a little info on one of them.
This year I had the pleasure of working with a good friend of mine Jonathan D Haskell on a remix for the LA band Kan Wakan. You might have heard Kan Wakan’s new track ‘Like I Need You’, the song from HBO’s new promo one night surfing the TV.

I was very excited to remix this song for a few reasons. First the band has a great sound and nice style, and second I knew I would have many fun layers of live instruments to play with.

Jonathan is the founding member of Seven Saturdays a very interesting band out of Los Angeles so I knew he would bring some fun vibes to the project and a unique style.
I approached this remix with a different idea. I wanted to bring all the sounds you did not hear or pay attention to in the original to the front of the mix and make them the main focus of the new track.
One thing was for sure I wanted the drums to have a unique sound. After a bit of designing, processing and some magic layers from Jonathan we came up with this track.
Check out the remix and download and share if you like.
