For the uninitiated, the lists curated below heavily favor ambient, psychedelic, experimental, tripped, selections.

2018 Disposable Commodities Releases: 2017 pressing delays and bankrupt distribution company dealt a few set backs to the DISCO operation. 2018 we hunkered down. New music arriving in early 2019. The forthcoming Eecee casette/digital release by Ian Lehman aka Doubt has been the most listened to piece of music this year for me. I listened to this album countless nights in the wee hours and this was my soundtrack for 2018.  I am very excited to finalize the production for a release in the new year. Occult electronic ambient of the highest order.

Eecee - Please Let Me Work - Disposable Commodities (Forthcoming 2019)

2018 Night Visitor Blog Mixes:   I had the fortunate opportunity to play several shows this year as well as be invited to contribute to podcasts. For this I am very grateful. I also did a number of themed concept mixes that went over well.
