"The tracks in Hesitate were largely born out of constraints; some self-imposed and some naturally occurring. A busy home life on top of a fulltime job in software engineering restricted my time to create. Surprisingly, this time crunch was the main driver to compose these tracks at a consistent pace. Given I typically have roughly 20-30 minutes at a time to make progress, I learned to use time efficiently. Allowing space between creative spurts also gave my ideas breathing room and resulted in fresh ears for the following session.

My history of using Max/MSP and experimenting with generative music gave me an appreciation for imposing additional creative constraints, intentionally starting with only a few simple sounds and ideas and slowly building out the structure of the track.

The sounds in these dance floor-ready selections share a common thread, largely centered around foggy or misplaced memories of past decades that evoke a personal yearning and nostalgia. I felt the title of Hesitate was fitting given the feeling of unease provoked by particular rhythms and sound placement in time. The title track, little-o and Keep present this unease through off-beat and broken break patterns and switch-ups.

A huge thank you to my wife Jenny (featured vocals on Sneakers)."
