Diversions Out Now

A couple months ago I quietly released another EP, titled Diversions.  Diverted, the centerpiece of the EP, was written after I bought an upright piano at the very end of last year, which also triggered a wave of inspiration.  Diverted could be considered the sister to last year's Bleed Together.

Listen here: http://smarturl.it/diversions


I saw your ghost flickering
it burns the rain again
my compassion into sand
Lust to dust
I’m shedding skin
It quivers in your hands
Dear assassin, here I am.

You deserve it
You deserted

That kiss that rips the skin
Untangles all the webs you spin so well
I’ll bathe in that delusion
That thorn could be no other
Dissolves my every color, I know
The bitter afterglow

You were worth it
I thought I earned it
You deserted
I’ve diverted
and reign alone

I know
The beauty in illusion
The safety in seclusion
The comfort in confusion
Your conscience must be weighing
To discard what is draining
Our embrace is breaking.

With every storm I’ve weathered
To your last breath I’ve treasured
You cast aside that feather
I thought we bled together

When separation’s measured
That fragile bone is severed
You cast aside that feather
But I know we bled together

Tap Tempo 028 - Blue Stahli

This week on the show I have Blue Stahli, who's known primarily in the electronic rock scene, but has also had a rather strong career in licensing his music in film and television.  We hit it off immediately and share a very similar sense of humor, as well as general outlook, so talking with Bret all afternoon was truly a pleasure.  Included here is 1.5 hours of our 9 hour marathon.  He's another one who is involved in a number of different sonic identities, so we focused a lot of the necessity of diversifying your output, as well as general musical ideals, of which we shared many.  Great guy.

Listen here: 

Also, next weekend I'll be in Las Vegas as a panelist at the Avid Connect Conference.  I'll be speaking on two panels:  Mixing In The Box, and Creativity in Pro Tools.  If you happen to be at the conference, come say hello.  The weekend after that I'll be playing at Exchange here in LA, on April 14th.  Ticket's are still available, as far as I know.

Tap Tempo 027 - KJ Sawka and the road to Pendulum

Happy Friday, friends.

After a little hiatus (read: touring, SXSW), Tap Tempo is back this week with KJ Sawka.  KJ is a very renowned drummer, whom I've been fortunate to know for a decade at this point.  We initially worked together on BT's These Hopeful Machines, with KJ providing some of the live drumming on the album.  And now, we both live in LA. Success.   He picked up his first bit of notoriety right around the time youtube started to become a thing, and needless to say, his skills have always been rather insane.  ie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b98BJ36K1wo

On this episode he goes deeply into his background, the various ways he kept reinventing his techniques, and the sheer dedication that eventually culminated in the offer to be the drummer of the band, Pendulum.

Tap Tempo 025 + 026 with Reid Speed

It's cold in LA, which is rather antithetic to one of the main reason I moved here 6 years ago.  That all said, when the lowest the temperature drops to is 35 degrees, it's not so bad.  Relatively.  However, I'm still not a fan of it.  Consequently I've stayed in the house most of the time and also have been finishing up a ton of music.  Weather induced productivity for the win.

I'm playing a few shows over the next couple of weeks.  On March 9th I'm in Minneapolis at The Hideout. On March 10th I'm in Hamilton, Ontario at Seventy Seven, and On March 12th I'm doing a showcase at Ethics in Austin, TX, on the first day of SXSW.  Alongside me at Ethics will be a small handful of friends: Dave Dresden (of Gabriel & Dresden), Monstergetdown (mau5trap label buddy), and local austin hero, Medicinne.  It should be a really fun night and it's free, so if you're in town for SXSW, come check us out.

Reid Speed stopped by a couple weeks ago and delivered a really personal interview that I decided to split into two parts as we covered a lot of ground.  The first of which aired last week and focused primarily on running her independent record label, Play Me Records, and the joys as well as challenges therein.  This week Part 2 goes into her background, which is intense.  I need to thank Reid for her candidness and vulnerability, which is truly refreshing in these often saccharine times.

Oumi Kapila on Tap Tempo this week!

I'll keep it brief this week as I've been pretty much holed up in my house all week, which to be fair has been great.  Fortunately for my sanity, Oumi Kapila came over on Wednesday night and we recorded this episode before getting fairly annihilated together at the Highland Park Brewery.  Oops.  Oumi's a composer, primarily working in trailer music these days, having composed the music for the trailers of films such as Star Wars: Rogue One and Life.  Before the composing life took over he was in the bands Filter and Combichrist, working with both on their recent albums and touring the world a few times as their guitarist.  What I love about Oumi, aside from his talent, is the wisdom he exhibits far beyond his years.  We go pretty deep down that rabbit hole as well the philosophy behind his artistry, as well as some good ol fashioned guitar geek talk.

Tap Tempo 022 with Chongor Goncz of Pensado's Place out now

We're back.  Happy New Year.  This week I have Chongor Goncz on Tap Tempo.  Chongor is one of the producers of the music production talk show Pensado's Place.   Pensado's Place was created by Grammy winning mix engineer Dave Pensado and his manager Herb Trawick. Over the six years that the show has been around they've had nearly every A List mix engineer, such as Tony Maserati (Lady Gaga, Beyonce) and Manny Marroquin (Rihanna, Justin Beiber), producers such as Greg Wells (Adele, Katy Perry) and Noah "40" Shebib (Drake, Lil Wayne), as well as a series of worldwide educational events and partnerships with schools such as Nashville's Blackbird Academy, and even an annual award show.  They've done a rather unbelievable amount of good for the audio community, connecting everyone from the bedroom hobbyist to those at the very top of the industry.  On a personal note, it was a bit of a dream come true for me last year when I was invited to be on the show (watch here).   Chongor was gracious enough to come down to my house and talk a bit about what goes on behind the scenes, the overall ethos of Pensado's Place, and how he found himself in such a position.

Also, Tania Zygar's debut album, Explode, is finally out in it's entirety.  The two of us worked nonstop on this labor of love for nearly 2 years and is available now in all online outlets.

We'll be doing Tap Tempo live this year at NAMM on the Avid stage.  Stay tuned for more info on that in the coming weeks...

Bleed Together out now!

Bleed Together, the next EP in the Calliope album series, is out today.  I’m proud of it.  Really proud of it.  Objectively I think it’s a stronger EP than Punish Me.  While there are moments and songs on that which I believe to be rather quite good, as a whole Bleed Together is where I think I “found it.”  To be fair, Bleed Together is far newer and perhaps I’m honeymooning a bit with it, but time will tell.   It’s a much more romantic EP.  Less “Punish Me,” more “Love Me.”  A couple of years ago I would’ve said that I could only be truly inspired in times of duress.  I sure was wrong, or I evolved.  Either way, what a beautiful change of pace to move beyond that.  Perhaps it’s part of getting older and the angst subsiding.  This is a good thing. Bleed Together is rooted very deeply in mythology, and I attribute much of that to reading a fair amount of Joseph Campbell this year.

A little about the songs on Bleed Together:

The first two songs of this EP, Bleed Together and Leave Behind, were inspired by a summer romance.  She had a mysticism about her followed by a devilish twinkle hidden behind deep blue eyes.  Through her I was exposed to a magic and a beauty within the world that I’m usually too blind and cynical to see.  Of course because there’s often little poetry within a happy ending (I’ve also heard it said that a happy ending merely depends on where the story stops), it was over as quickly as it began.  Life threw her a curve ball followed by some extended travel, and she never fully returned.  However, I’m beyond grateful for the inspiration.  I hope she calls.   Calliope was written for my Calliope, the queen of my muses time and time again. She knows who she is.

Listen on your preferred platform here: smarturl.it/bleedtogether

Bleed Together:
So this is the way
You wove your thread into my fate
Echoes in your eyes and through your hair
Mirror blue and I stare
Entwined in crimson desire
We’ll take it slow
Tend our garden as it grows
Lift you up to breath you in
Grasp me tight and feel you break my skin
For nights like this I’d burn forever
Can you paint our picture on a star
Your inherent charms apparent
Can you stand below and catch my fall
You’re protected, I’m connected
Can you carve your name into my heart
Tear it open, yours for taking
Can you cut yourself in symmetry
Birds of a feather bleed together
We’ll take it slow
So no one knows
That we’re tethered
We’ll take it slow
So no one knows
We’re of a feather

Leave Behind:
Finding solace in your metaphor
(so don’t leave me behind)
You’re fingered constellations are my oracle
So I must keep pushing forward
(I won’t leave thee behind)
For if I’m to look behind uncertain
You’ll disappear

Come out of your shell
Will you be there for me
Prophets always tell nothing of your mystery
Shadows blur together
Mine and yours in harmony
Being in your arms was never in the contingency
Meet me in my hell
Will you go down with me
Even if I cross the styx unaided
You’re on the periphery
Come and walk along
Split the tide and stand with me
Lets give in, surrender, let the flood
Rewrite our history
Listen here, if I’m being honest
It scares the shit out of me
To actualize that long obsession
Of drowning in our entropy
I’ve learned to fair your torrid waters
To navigate differently
Smoke your signal high when you’re yearning to
Embark on our odyssey
I’m glad you’re well
For you that I am singing
I’m glad you’re well
For you my skin is shedding
I’m glad you’re well
For you my ark is sinking
I’m glad you’re well
For you my chaos consumes me
I’m glad you’re well
You are my hell.

Tap Tempo 020 - Dwarfcraft... and new music from me next week.

After a nice little 2 week break, thanksgiving and so forth, we're back.  This week on Tap Tempo Ben Hinz from Dwarfcraft joins me.  For those not of the guitar persuasion, Dwarfcraft is a small family run business out of Eau Claure, WI, and they make some of my favorite guitar pedals ever.  Earlier this year on Pensado's Place I mentioned a pedal that I lovingly refer to as "Death Kitties," which is actually called the Big Distortion Sound Machine (BDSM.. obviously).  Dwarfcraft was responsible for that and it was my introduction into their twisted sonic world that I've become a very ardent fan.  Fun fact:  The climax of Clever Girl, which contains waves of distortion, was created by running very low pitched strings through Death Kitties.  It's a beautiful sparkly blue box with 2 pink cats wrestling on it.  How could I deny it?  We dive deep into the ethos behind Dwarfcraft.   A fair amount of gear talk, of course, but also much about what gives them a very unique voice in the world of guitar pedals and the dynamic of how Ben and his wife Louise run the company together all the while raising 3 children.   This one was a ton of fun.

Also... I have new music out in a week!  The next EP in the Calliope album series is called Bleed Together, and it'll be available on December 13th.  It's a much more romantic EP than the last.  Less "punish me," more "love me."  Ha.  I'm proud of it.  Objectively, I think it's really good.  I'll be posting little teasers of it over the next week.

Finally, I advise you to listen to Nils Frahm's album, Felt. It's good for the soul.

Tap Tempo 019 - Rinzen & Tania Zygar's Explode

This week on Tap Tempo I have mau5trap's newest artist, Rinzen, on the show.  Rinzen, also known as Michael Sundius, has a long standing background as a journalist for media outlets such as Billboard and Dancing Astronaut which certainly gave him a unique perspective on how to launch his artist career.  In our talk we dive into the various ways that has helped him as well as a lot of discussion on fostering creativity and the philosophy behind his brand.  It was a pleasant surprise to find how much in common we had there down to even the books we choose to read.  His debut EP, Forbidden City, was just released last month.

Listen to Rinzen's episode of Tap Tempo here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/tap-tempo-019-rinzen/id1258104375?i=1000394889091&mt=2

So THIS is a long time coming.  As some of you know, some 4 or 5 years ago I worked with Tania Zygar producing her debut album.  As life has a tendency of throwing a wrench in the mechanism from time to time, it got delayed for 4 years after we finished it.  Finally it's on it's way out, however!  The first single, Explode, was just released today and the rest of it should be coming shortly.  We're both beyond excited about being able to share it.  A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into the album, and it was certainly a very pivotal and evolutionary journey for both of us.  More to come soon...  In the mean time, you can listen to Explode here:  https://enhanced.lnk.to/TANIA001

There will not be a Tap Tempo next week as it's Thanksgiving over here, so we'll pick back up the following week.  Enjoy your time with friends and family.

Tap Tempo 018 - Sharooz Raoofi

This week I have Sharooz Raoofi on Tap Tempo. As the founder of Sample Magic, which is now 12 years old, he's watched the electronic music world evolve time and time again as he's provided many of the tools that have influenced and inspired producer after producer. If we backtrack about 9 years ago, I produced a little sample library for one of the Sample Magic imprints, Sounds To Sample, which they later sold to Beatport. Coincidentally we ran into each other a number of times over the past few weeks, and it seemed like a great opportunity to get him on the show before he flies back to the UK next week.

We dive pretty deep into ethos of Sample Magic, which as always always produced their products at an extremely high level, and as always felt beautifully boutique. Beyond just samples, they've also produced books and now plug ins. I personally use the A/B plugin a ton. We also discuss the new artist project he's working on centered around a mouthwatering collecting of analog synths and drum machines he's amassed over the years. It's a really good talk; dare I say one of the best I've had so far on the show. He's incredibly insightful as well as humble, which is a really lovely thing considering how much of a success Sample Magic is. It truly was a pleasure to have him on.

Tap Tempo 017 - Finishing Move and the music of Halo Wars 2. And more.

It's been a busy couple of weeks.  As you may or may not have noticed, I didn't harass you with a weekly email last week.  We did a mau5trap show in Austin a week and a half ago and I ended up staying down in Austin for a few days thereafter.  Call it a mini vacation, a necessary recalibration, or a momentary disconnection.  It was needed.  A little separation to see the forest from the trees is always a good thing I think.  Consequently there was no Tap Tempo last week.  As soon as I got back I hit the ground running and rather swiftly finished up the next EP from the Calliope project.  I'm really proud of it.  I'll talk more about it soon once we get closer to the release of it.  It'll be in December.

Now this week there fortunately is a Tap Tempo.  Finishing Move is the production/composer duo made up of Brian Trifon and Brian Lee White.  "The Brians" as they are often aptly referred to.  After launching Finishing Move a few years ago they've gone on to work on a litany of game scores, most recently Halo Wars 2.  They also put out their own signature instrument last year called Posthuman that I ended up using a bit.  My song, Clever Girl, was started with it.  Very inspirational tool.  So the 3 of us sat down and got into the nitty gritty of their scores, their partnership, and if they were to choose a finishing move to off each other, a la Mortal Kombat, what they would choose.

Tap Tempo 016 - Rhys Fulber & mau5trap takes over Austin, TX

Today I had the pleasure of getting Rhys Fulber to sit down for Tap Tempo.  For those not aware of his given name, you certainly are aware of his music.  Remember the Delerium song, Silence, with Sarah McLachlan?  Check.  Basically every Fear Factory album from the 90's and 2000's? Check.  For the industrial heads... Front Line Assembly?  Check.  He's been around a long time and carries a lot of wisdom from his experience in the industry.  He's also a close friend and someone I can lean on for support and advice when down and out in Paris and London.  We talk a bit about the start of his career, how he pioneered synthesizers within the usually strict guidelines of metal, and a newfound peace and gratitude for his career, and life in general.

For those in Austin, TX, the mau5trap crew is descending upon you this Sunday.  We're taking over Kingdom nightclub all night long, and included on the bill besides me is our pal from last week, Monstergetdown, Black Gummy, and No Mana.   I really love Austin, and I love Kingdom as well.  I always have such a great there.  Truly looking forward to it.

Just a quickie this week. Monstergetdown is on Tap Tempo. Even though he's been part of the mau5trap family for a couple of years now, he only just released his debut EP, 28mm with mau5trap a couple weeks ago. What better a time to get him on the show! He's a sweet guy. We're played a number of shows together as well as hung out recreationally on occasion too. East Side represent. We kill a growler of the Pioneer Man IPA from the Highland Park brewery and talk all the things that makes the monster get down.

Tap Tempo 014 - Reuben Keeney + LA/Denver and Elevate


Happy Wednesday everyone,

This week on the show I've got Irish house music producer, Reuben Keeney.  About 8 years ago or so I remixed one of his records called "Futuro," and the crazy thing is he was only about 16 or 17 years old at the time.  Fast forward to present day, he'd been listening to the podcast, was planning a trip to LA, and wanted to join. So here we are.  He's a great guy.  We talk a lot about his background, how he ended up making records at such a young age, a lot about the international political climate, nationalism and so forth, and introduce him to southern California beer.

Listen here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/tap-tempo-014-reuben-keeney/id1258104375?i=1000393051830&mt=2

This saturday I'm doing a warehouse show in LA.  Late night.  2-4am.  Then I'm quickly flying to Denver a few hours later and will be doing a free show at Beta.  For those in either area, tickets/RSVP can be found here:  www.mattlange.net/tour

Lastly for the production folks, I've been involved with Eventide/Newfangled Audio for the past year on a new limiter called Elevate.  It's out now finally, and it's quite honestly the best limiter I've ever used.  It's stunning.  They had me film a little video about it with them a couple weeks ago in New York and you can learn more about it here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBE3h2EKyW0

Tap Tempo 013 - Francis Preve

Happy Wednesday,

We're back on track.  Things are good. Mostly.  This week on Tap Tempo I've got Francis Preve (www.francispreve.com).  Francis is a bit of a guru in the electronic music sphere at this point after having a 30+ year career in it.  He's been involved in so many sides of it, from working on hit records, to designing a ton of the presets that come on many many synthesizers, to being a journalist for numerous music tech magazines for the past 25 years.  On top of all of that, he's a long time faculty member at Austin Community College specializing in Music Production.  We recorded this in Austin at his home studio during SXSW this year, but held out on releasing it until now.  There is a lot to learn from him. A lot.

Tap Tempo 012 - Q&A (Your Questions Answered)

This week I've got a Q&A episode for you.  I reached out on all the various social media outlets on Tuesday to gather all sorts of questions ranging from general life stuff to music production and this is the result of that.  I think it's good.  It's certainly honest.  Hopefully you gain something from it.

Minus a weekend here and there, I'm pretty much home for the rest of the year.  Full speed ahead on the album, the next EP, and all sorts of writing things.  I'm relieved.  While touring can be really enjoyable I always find myself extremely drained after a long run of it, and the hours never allow me to get to the actual writing music part of my life.  I need it.  I did a surprise set at Sound here in LA on this past Tuesday night as part of the weekly Space Yacht parties and it was the best way to wrap up the tour.  It quite possibly could be my favorite set I've ever played in LA.  Great crowd, great vibe, great everything honestly.  Thank you to everyone who was a part of that.

Ok, back into the void.

Tap Tempo 011 - Andrew Bayer

It's been a hectic week over here. Lots of travel.  I'm still catching up, but it was good.  New York is always such a special place to visit for me.  I did grow up there after all, and only get to return far too infrequently. Every time I visit I always end of thinking I should move back there, but then the reality of winter sets in and that little fantasy gets instantly nixed. I like my California sunshine all too much.  C'est la vie. Saw family, friends, filmed a video promo for Eventide, played at Output.  It was good.  That was followed by flying up to Montreal the next day, did a gig at Newspeak.  Nice club.  Thanks all who came out to both.  Was great to chat with some of you after the gigs.

This week I have Andrew Bayer on Tap Tempo.  I flew east a day early so that I could spend a day with him.  It had been far too long.  He's been one of my closest friends for nearly a decade and we usually only get to see each other about once a year these days.  We recorded this the next morning while we both we feeling pretty haggard, but it's a good talk and look into how he functions.  We talk a lot about his next album that he's been working on, writing music that is true to yourself, his role with Above & Beyond, and his newfound love of domestication.  Frankly, I'm very envious of that.  He's built a beautiful life for himself.

As always, you can listen here:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/tap-tempo-011-andrew-bayer/id1258104375?i=1000392200528&mt=2

On Friday I'm flying out to London, Ontario to play the Bud Light Block Party (Ha!), and on Saturday I'm back at Sound Bar in Chicago where I'm doing the whole set in Dolby Atmos Surround.  As an artist (and listener), Atmos is so exciting to work in and it feels like you're truly existing within the music itself, not just listening to it.  Last time I got to play in this format was in the UK last year at Ministry Of Sound.  Finally we have an Atmos system in the states thanks to Sound Bar.  If you're in the area it's absolutely worth checking out.

Until next week,

Tap Tempo 010 - Anthony Baldino and 100 beers!

We made it.  10 Episodes.  I wasn't sure how long this little endeavor would last, but it's still going strong apparently.  This episode is a little bit different.  This past weekend I received a few boxes of "beer" from Anheuser-Busch and ridiculous as that is, I figured the best course of action was to call Anthony Baldino up and plan something.  We decided the only real acceptable solution was to pour them all out down the drain while we recorded a Tap Tempo with him as the guest.  In preparation for this we also stopped by the Stone brewery, filled up a growler with one of their test pilot pale ale's and made our way back home to get it going.  Anthony's an amazing talent, an amazing friend, and an amazing co-drainer of bud light.  So much amazing.  We talk a lot about his musical career path, modular synths (of which he's in the upper echelon), some production stuff, and trying to navigate relationships in this modern age.  All while pouring out 1 beer at a time over the course of an hour.  It's fun.  It's silly.  It's real.

This weekend I'm at Output in New York on Friday.  Late night slot.  On Saturday I'm in Montreal at Newspeak.  I'm hoping to record a couple Tap Tempos with some guests local to those two cities as well during this trip if all goes according to plan.  Fingers crossed.  Links to tickets for both can be found here: http://www.mattlange.net/tour/

Black Math - Lapse (Matt Lange's Unforgiven Remix)

I remixed my friends Black Math a few months ago (they kill it in the trailer music world, finally branching out a bit into the public eye), and this is what I came up with.  It's one of my most favorite remixes I've ever done, and it's heaaaavy.  Drop F 7 string guitars!  I'm proud of this one.
