First off, if you haven’t heard, Xoc just released Xoc Plays Super Mario Brothers 3. I was lucky enough to contribute some bass tracks to this album, but I’d be pimping it even if I weren’t on it. It’s pretty fantastic, and it’s only $5. Go here and get it, I’ll wait for you. http://www.xocmusic.com/xocplays3.
Ok, you have it now? Great. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed playing on it.
I guess this is as good a time as any to announce another of my special guests: XOC (aka Jason Cox)! You probably saw that coming. If you’re at all familiar with his work, you know he’s a multi-instrument wizard and a musical genius. If you’re not familiar with him, go here and start downloading and listening: http://www.xocmusic.com. His Super Mario World soundtrack is a masterpiece, and SMB3 is being compared favorably to it. This pleases me. It also pleases me that Xoc has contributed several tracks of stuff to my album. He’s acting as kind of a chaos element, where he’s adding interesting textures and noises using a variety of instruments, including some of his own inventions. Particularly, I’m talking about an electronic noisemaking thing he calls a “Craparratus” and frankly, I’m tickled to be able to list that in the credits.
