Blog, General

I started Mantis a long time ago. From what I can gather, it was sometime around 2004, so it was originally a 2ndMOUSE track that appeared on a really early ad hoc album that was kinda thrown together in those really early days when giving away a free track was […]

Carbinax has been quiet for a long time. For various reasons.Paradoxically, there’s never been a time when I’ve been more enamoured with the process of making music, and I have been making a LOT of music, and then just kinda storing it, instead of actually releasing it.I think I know […]

500

Wow. It’s been a while.I haven’t posted anything here in months, and it’s clear that I struggle with routines and  just never been one for being regimented and adhering to a rigid structure. I completely understand the necessity for that, and I have the biggest respect for those that can, […]

It’s taken me months, but I’ve finally catalogued all the tracks I’m currently working on. I should have done this from the start because it was a ton of work, but, if there’s a wrong way of doing things, you can be sure I’ll usually try that first =P Up […]

“Carbinax is back once again, the prolific mastermind simply can’t keep still. We’re always excited to hear where he’ll take his sound next and with Flex (featuring 20 explosive tracks) we see similar IDM and experimental electronic activity.

Flex Release

Flex was released at 20:00 on 0/02/2020 with 20 tracks that brought it very close to 2.0 hours worth of music. With all that random cosmic allignment going on, it should’ve been a 2ndMOUSE release =) There are some very unique hybrids on it, and if you listen to Capable […]
