The first Triangle Piece music video is here! Thanks to Tarv Hill for putting together this gem.
Last week I played my first live set as Triangle Piece at CCAD’s Welcome Fest, and now I’m gearing up for round two.
Should be a great night, and all proceeds go toward the Daymon Day Parade costs. See you there!

Happy New Year! Here is a new track that samples Van Morrison. I have been sampling from vinyl and love the warmth it gives to the finished product.
Check out the album Veedon Fleece for tons of VM gems.
Way Yes - Walkability
I love positive music. Starting with the name - these guys are decidedly celebratory. They’ve infused West African juju riffs into this American pop song with a deftness as smooth as sippin’ palm wine on white sand beach and as colorful as a Nigerian caftan.
Get their Walkability EP on Bndcmp here, and while you’er there, don’t miss their new release of remixes.
Old Worlds was one of the very first bands in Columbus to extend out a helping hand to Way Yes when we were getting started. I was honored to work on one of their songs. It was a lot of fun taking a song so different from my normal genre and put my own twist on it.
This was also my first time working on a song with multiple time signatures. The original version of Secret History switches from 7/4, to 4/4, to 5/4, & back to 4/4 (I think). Old Worlds really shines in their ability to do this so seamlessly. On my first few listens, I didn’t even notice this was happening.
My version only uses 4/4 and 5/4, but I can safely say it’s the Triangle Piece track that uses 5/4 (and hopefully not the last)! Of course I had to sample some Japanther (among other things) into the mix just to bring in the switch with a bang.
Oh, and I’m trying to switch my Facebook URL (sorry for the confusion). Please “Like” me at the new one so I can lock down facebook dot com slash triangle piece, which was previously unavailable.
see you soon,
There is some raunchy filter experimentation on the intro that I am planning to explore further on future ΔP tracks.
Monster Rally was by far the trickiest artist I have ever done a remix for. Usually it’s pretty simple to use the original vocal take and chord progression from a song and introduce a new beat, samples and whatever makes sense. But when working with an artist that uses no vocals and all sample based material already, it was difficult to interpret the music without sounding too much like the original, or not like it at all. Maybe this is old fashioned of me, but I still think a listener should be able to recognize the original song in a remix no matter how far you take it. This track certainly walks that line, but the outro hits you with some more blatant Monster Rally sounds.
This is actually the fourth Monster Rally remix I have finished now, but the first that I was happy with the final result. Because I have taken a stab at so many different tracks off the Coral LP, I ended up using samples from three different Monster Rally songs:
