about

During my early years, I never really tried to make beats; I wrote raps. We either jacked other people's beats (12" instrumentals and tape loops) or had producers make us beats.
In 1997, I purchased Mister Jason's old Roland MS-1 sampler, as he had just upgraded to the Akai MPC-2000, and started to figure out how to sample and arrange beats. I started a DIY side project called Off To The Left which would eventually morph into Warm Bodies.
These are my very first productions, recorded onto cassette and sequenced on the fly. They are in chronological order, so they get "better" as time goes on.
Very simple and glacially slow in tempo. Not great, but very nostalgic for me.
