Made in the USA.
Initially a hungry Nine Inch Nails collector in the late 90s in high school (100+ releases owned), shifting the full Digital Hardcore Recordings catalog (also 100+ releases owned) at the cusp of high school in Phoenix and further into amen-laden music as I began college in Chicago. I briefly focused my collecting laser sights on Pitchshifter and Cex's discographies as thorough as I could in 2007ish when I was in full-on Discogs mode. After focusing more on my own music production pursuits, I accepted the death of the record store and physical media around that time onward.
Chicago's been a perfect home for me between the WaxTrax! industrial universe (RIP Neo Nightclub) coupled with the frenetic midwestern world of breakcore and a melting pot to discover so much more (glitch art, juke, bewitching drone/noise, etc). I played out heavily during 2008-2011, with particularly fond memories of the chiptune/breakcore Castle Tacoskull parties and all the musicians and friends I keep meeting along the way. I am very much interested in the community of local electronic musicians around Chicago, super avid and enthused with all art produced here. After several years away from Discogs, I've rediscovered old piles of demo releases from these parties and shows, striving to help catalog and document it all here.
If there's anything in my physical music library you're interested in, feel free to message me. Definitely wouldn't mind "passing the torch" onto someone who would find renewed appreciation for a release. I'd be pretty reasonable in pricing too, or even trades if you have something neat. Heck, if you're in Chicago and producing music of weirdo visual art, it'd be cool to just chat too, hah.
