Moved to London last year for a new job. Would love to play out and have fun. I have a ton of gear to record with - although I rarely finish songs because it's just me and the creative load is hard. I can produce, write arrangments and engineer, just looking for a vocalist. I'd prefer a female vocalist but open to whomever. I have a pretty serious job which takes a bit of my time and will make this a hobby but that isn't an excuse to not make a few great songs and play a few good shows, and more importantly, have fun.
Would like to put something together in the nature of Massive Attack, the kills, Profiles, Dev Haynes, The Cure, TV on the Radio. The main instruments would be an Elektron Octatrack, a guitar, looper, perhaps a synth and a vocalist. Simple & elegant.
Below is a link to my old duo from ten years back. We were rushed as I had to head off to grad school, but there was potential.

Failure is my favorite band - mostly because of Ken Andrews and Fantastic Planet's production. I'm from Minnesota, USA so Prince is up there as well. Others - Kills, TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Interpol, Massive Attack, God Speed You Black Emporer. I also listen to a ton of sounds scapes and soundtrack scores.
But into pretty much anything as long as it's good. Half the time I have no clue who I am listening to.

All the Elektron gear - Drum machine/Sampler/Synth. Multiple electrics, and acoustic. I also have pro-level studio gear. Pretty much more than I know what to do with.

Afrikan Sciences 'Circuitous' (PAN 54)
Afrikan Sciences 'Circuitous' (PAN 54)Afrikan Sciences 'Circuitous' LP PAN 54 Peerless rhythmist and sonic explorer Afrikan Sciences makes his PAN debut with 'Circuitous,' the third full-length, freeform offering from the New York-based artist. At the nexus of Afrofuturism, science fiction, transcendental free jazz, and future hip hop, this new work from Eric Porter Douglas casts itself and its creator in a liminal zone most recognizably charted by astral traveler Sun Ra. ‘Circuitous’ follows from nearly a decade of releases for Deepblak —the Oakland-rooted imprint of frequent collaborator Aybee— and shares common blood with both the elevated consciousness of late '80s club culture and contemporary West Coast beat scene Built around Douglas’ signature polyrhythms and complex melodies, the unorthodox agility demonstrated throughout the album’s fourteen tracks reflect his long history of live, improvised sets combining multiple turntables, upright bass, and a command center of digital tablets and controllers. Each track maps the artist’s own movements, tracing paths of flight, highway trajectories through tunnels and over bridges, and rides through rough and gated neighborhoods. If familiar on the surface, deeper or repeated listenings to ‘Circuitous’ reveal the dynamic multiplicity embodied within. 'Circuitous' is a free and unbound body of work—one that defies easy classification yet translates fluidly across multiple environments—compiled over double LP in order to fully realize the scope of Afrikan Science's sonic palette. http://p-a-n.org/
