This blog was born out of an obsession with studio experiments. Both hardware and software. It’s an outlet for the tools and process behind the music. I’ve got a lot of love for software like VCV Rack and Ableton, and a passion for analog monosynths, drum machines, tape, guitar pedals and experimentation.

The site is named after one of my favourite tracks of all time… Two Lone Swordsmen – Brootle (which you can hear below)
