    "Spinningmerkaba starts the new year with a bang in this driven, rebellious, burning fuse of a remix. This one is fiercely motivating!" -Jeris, editor at the world famous ccMixter.org remix website. 
     
    I began recording this track because of Nigid's source material, it fit so well with DJ Yegor's loop, and then the melody started coming.  Then the words from my subconscious, and I realized I was working out some anger and sadness about the fucked up bull-shit happening all around me.  On all levels I need bolt cutters.  This song is for you if you can relate.

  • More Than Just A Dream

    Posted Nov. 28, 2016 at 9:58 a.m. to Jason Brock Public | 2 Responses

    My niece Jenna played the flute for me during our last visit and I recorded it.  More Than Just A Dream was built around her samples and the Kara Square's ukulele rhythm.  While this track was in production, I had visions of Neverland, of warm fires and frost on the windows, of aniticipation of the dawn drifting into silent dreams.

    My this song remind you of the place where dreams come true, and guide your footsteps there on clouds of imagination.

    "Go ahead, load up the Dub"
     
     
    "Start Diggin'"
     


    Fistful of Dub was remixed and released last weekend for the Dig The Dubcatcher Remix event.  I am stoked to have had the opportunity to remix such great talent.  As part of ccMixter's Dig the Soundtrack call-out for cc pells, samples and remixes, DJ Vadim released source tracks from his new album Dubcatcher2 to the commons for remixing and sharing.  Snowflake uploaded a meditative mix called The Gateway and "Fistful of Dub" features the source from both.

    Fistful is available at all SpinningMerkaba music sites, including Free Music Archive, Soundcloud, and Ccmixter.

  • Kayne West vs. Wiz Kalifa Mix Inspired by Waves

    Posted Jan. 30, 2016 at 8:38 p.m. to Jason Brock Public | Comment


    The twitter storm created by Kayne West regarding Wiz Kalifa's comments about Waves, the recently changed album title Kayne is about to release, has overshadowed any of the music these two rap giants have created recently.  The friction became my muse.  I dropped in and mixed this track "Swish to Waves (Kayne vs. Wiz Kalifa Mix feat. Forensic and Cube3)" for those of us who would rather dance than get caught up in the noise of tweets and gossip.

    The mix features ccMixter artists Forensic, Cube3 and StellarArtWars, all amazing in their own right and freely uploading source materials to remix.  As with any mix, the muse dictates the flow, and the journey to a final track was filled with hours of inspiration.  Along the way I got a healthy dose of both Kayne's and Kalifa's work.  I hope they use the storm to create their own waves like I did.

    "Swish to Waves (Kayne vs. Wiz Kalifa Mix feat. Forensic and Cube3)" is available for download under cc-by-nc license at Free Music Archive, Soundcloud, and CcMixter.org

    If you need a commercial license, you can purchase one at Tunetrack.net for your audio and visual productions

    Or you can just listen right here!  Turn it up and dance in the twitter storm!

  • David Bowie Tribute

    Posted Jan. 14, 2016 at 11:09 a.m. to Jason Brock Public | Comment


    You'd truly have to be floating in a tin can far away from the world to not be inspired by the life and the work of David Bowie.  As an artist and as a human, he opened up doors to new worlds for us to explore.  Throughout the course of my life as an artist, David was a icon of reinvention, creativity and mystery.  His music stands the test of time.  So will Bowie's legacy.

    I recorded this song "The Stars Look Different" because I wanted to say thank you through music. Mixed with samples released under Creative Commons, by ccMixter artists stefsax and Dimitri Artimenko, the track is a reminder to me of the creative process, of what inspires us, and of how we communicate.  We are all connected.   Thanks David, you really took the world for a beautifully creative ride.
