Skankatronics compilation

Skankatronics cover

Obscure. 1996. Discogs page. Here’s my contribution, first thing I ever released:

Skankatronics was a compilation of Wellington electronic music, dubbed “Pure Wellingtronica”.

For those into writing stuff: 11 8 time signature, a mono Akai sampler that could handle no more than 8 sounds, a Juno 106 synth, and a guitar delay pedal.

I took my gear around to Bevan Smith’s flat because he had a DAT to record the results on to. I had no way to record at home accept straight to tape on a home stereo. Bev suggested replacing the kick I’d sampled with a sample of his 808. Good idea.
