GODDEN’S original productions are influenced by the house and electro scenes of the eighties and nineties; none more so than the lead track of this release. “Mono Trigger” pays homage to the iconic Roland 808 drum machine which revolutionised music production and provided the foundation of the classic old school house sound. The driving rhythm and rumbling bassline combine to create a dramatic and urgent slice of dance music.
“Double Dropped” layers haunting synths over a dynamic rhythm, resulting in an engaging, cinematic, instrumental track.
The single is out now on Death Drop Records and is available to download from iTunes Store and Amazon.
As the dust settles on another epic New Year’s Eve, time to take stock of the achievements of the last 12 months:
It is safe to say that 2014 was as eventful a year as I have had since I embarked on this musical journey.
It would be exhausting for all of us if I ran through the whole 12 months, so I’ll keep it concise:
So, highlights, in no particular order:
A load of incredible gigs:-
Two incredible Masked Balls, rocking out with Rob Da Bank in Spring, playing the main stage at Halloween!
Live at Heartlands sharing a bill with Boomtown Rats and Peter Hook
Playing with Freerange DJs and Cakeboy in November – really not worthy!
2 festivals in one weekend
A sublime private function on a lawn over-looking the Cornish coast
And a range of great nights in Penzance, Truro, Falmouth and everywhere else!
Releasing my debut single in December – very proud of this! Thanks to Mawgan and Angela, without whom..etc. See separate post for full details.
Other musical highlights NOT directly DJ related:
Launching Penwith Radio on FM across West Cornwall
Meeting the legend Jay, AKA Beans On Toast at Boardmasters, and John “Reverend” McClure and John Robb at Beautiful Days
Performing with my good friends The Surgeons at their farewell gig.
It was such an amazing year that there are inevitably many other highlights that I have neglected.
You get the idea!
A quiet start to the year (not unwelcome!) probably won’t last long. 2015 promises to be challenging, on a professional and personal level. But every challenge offers a new opportunity, so BRING IT ON!
See you o n a dancefloor along the way xx
