K-Def – The Way It Was
Friday, January 8th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on K-Def – The Way It Was

Image: 1601524 When you’ve been in an industry for over 20 years, adaptation and
evolution are key functions in any field. If you’re Kevin Hansford
aka K-Def, you’ve seen good, you’ve seen bad, you’ve seen change
and on occasion, you’ve seen history repeat itself. For some artists,
staying true and being innovative can be a fine line and a struggle.
On one hand, a reputation is built from birth creating a connection
that should always be maintained. On the other hand, growth or
lack of growth will occur whether change is embraced. A producer
like K-Def would not still exist today in 2016 without being aware of
those survival tactics. In a society dictated by technology, it’s hard
to imagine the world as we know it without the devices and digital
platforms we entertain unconsciously.
As he continues to push himself, more recently K was inspired to
track down all of his original 90’s gear and works dating prior to his
software transition after a recent resurgence of old machines from
the younger generation. That meant pulling out 2 full trash bags of
floppy disks, revitalizing his old MPC 3000 to new condition, dusting
off rack sampler modules and hunting down his MPC 60ii which
was the first machine he used debuting in 1993 under Marley Marl.
Going through that process brings us K-def’s new album, The Way
It Was. The title sums it up. Instead talking about dues he paid and
the roots of his skill set, The Way it Was is a living demonstration for
younger listeners who grew up after the 90’s and his core fans who
remember the days of his Lords of the Underground, Real Live, Mic
Geronimo and World Renown productions like yesterday. Though
mostly instrumental, frequent collaborator Blu appears on 3 tracks.
Blu was inspired to record the socially aware, “The Boys” and the
lively “Strawberry Lemonade” (featuring Damu the Fudgemunk and
newcomer Kunal) after hearing K-Def’s original demo cassettes. At
11 tracks, “The Way It Was” is a must have for 90’s fans. It IS exactly
“what it was”.

• A collection of rarities & unheard tracks from the vaults + a
handful of new, vocal collaborations
• Includes vintage instrumentals from the 90s, some that were
used for singles by Lords Of The Underground, Tragedy, & Mic
Geronimo & Others + many beats that were never released

& Others

T.R.A.S.E. – Electronic Rock
Thursday, September 26th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on T.R.A.S.E. – Electronic Rock

Image: 1584252 Known amongst a small group of teenage friends as T.R.A.S.E (Tape Recorder And Synthesiser Ensemble) this previously unearthed and fully formed electronic music project was spearheaded by a 16-year-old school- boy as an extension of his woodwork, metalwork and science classes in 1981.

Composed and recorded using a self-made synth, audio mixer and elec- tronic percussion units T.R.A.S.E would bridge the gap between a love for sci-fi horror soundtracks, Gary Numan b-sides and an extra curricular hobby as a sound and lighting designer for school plays – bequeathing a backstory as unique and unfathomable as the individualistic sonic results that he would finally commit to C90. Having successfully recorded his only solo album, Electronic Rock (which was never duplicated beyond his own demo copy), this early musical achievement by Andy Popplewell stands up as a rare self-initiated example of embryonic experimental electro pop and genuine outsider music, marking the early domestication of synthesisers and the dawn of electronic home recording studios and the uninhibited results. Unhindered by adult concepts like self-consciousness, popular snobbery, fashion, pride and fear of failure (while funded by paper rounds and odd jobs in his Mancunian community), Andy, armed with the plans to the Chorosynth kit module, an old junk shop piano keyboard and some hand-me-down tools from his recently deceased dad, would fill an exercise book with plans, arrangements and self-penned new wave pop lyrics to fully realise the potential of his one-man synthetic symphony. Reaping the benefits of his own stencilled circuit boards and soldering iron skills (whilst occasionally enlisting the part time help of his younger brother on guitar) T.R.A.S.E’s homemade technology pop continued to bloom right up until the very cusp of adolescence when careers officers and real life responsi- bilities saw the end of Andy’s reel to reel multitracking which is finally pre- sented here for the first time since it was sung and played. This ambitious cross section of robotic funk and moody soundscape sequences makes instrumental nods to John Carpenter and Kraftwerk next to unpolished vocal drones worthy of a sedated Human League or Joy Divison, all of whom shared radio dial digits amongst Giorgio Moroder, Tubeway Army and The Glitter Band as Popplewell’s clearest unabashed influences.

The T.R.A.S.E tapes, finally unearthed by Finders Keepers, show the full extent of the projects repertoire before the “group’s” final hiatus which, for Andy, was followed by a working education in London under BBC employment as a trainee radio engineer (not far from the closed door of the Radiophonic Workshop) which has since led to a widespread reputation as one of the country’s leading independent tape engineers/editors/archivists indiscriminately splicing and baking vintage tapes for anyone in-between Alpha in Brussels and ZTT in London. Having worked with hundreds of reputable studios, pop stars and media companies throughout his career Andy claims he has rarely been asked about his own musical history in 30 working years, Finders Keepers are glad we Popped that very question.
