After recording our biggest monthly viewers total in March by some distance, I thought it might be a good time to take a look at the hows, and whys our numbers went up up and away.
Kovas has finally got around to uploading a selection of tracks to Soundcloud, saying “no point in them living on my pc for ever now is there”.
There are extended versions of tracks known to 64bar lovers, Desire, which appeared on 64:4 and Death Walk, which was on 64:2. There is also the highly ridiculous “This is Hardcore” track, which featured on Gas’ This is the Fucking Hardcore” mix of 2008.
Apart from those, the remaining tracks have all remained hidden on his laptop. He explains: “We’ll I had nothing better to do this particular Sunday, so I thought I’d wheel out some of the beats I’ve done over the past couple or three years.
“They are all very different tracks, I’m not sure it there is a theme running through them, so in that way it’s hard to define a sound for myself. They were just tracks I felt like writing at the time.
“Anyone who knows me knows I never sit down to write a track with the finished sound in mind, I just put noises together I think will work.. and try not to overdo it.”
