What are the ‘Modular Sessions’? 

The aim is to write, perform and record a new track in a single take using only a Eurorack modular synth (and FX pedals). The key motivation comes from the idea of creating and performing a complete song using a limited set of tools and removing the ubiquitous DAW from the creative process.

This is the 1st volume of the side project ‘Modular Sessions’ from Brighton based electronic artist/producer VCOADSR. 

Modular Sessions Vol.1 - Can you here me?

I am pleased to announce the winners of the ‘DiscoBitch’ remix competition!

Thanks to everyone who put the effort into remixing the track and submitting. There is some pretty amazing talent out there and hopefully more competitions will run in the future on the back of the success of this one.

So without further ado the winners are:

a.man.called.peter - DiscoBitch (A.M.C.P. Rework)
