The Science of Telephony

Here's something a little different from the House of Colatron. Originally intended to be on the forthcoming Tenebrism album, I've decided not to include it, as it doesn't quite fit with the ambient vibe I've got reaching across the album currently.

But as everyone knows, I love me some dubstep.

A humorous semi-biographical look at the world of telecoms; 911 operators aside, I come across these call centre loons every single day of my working life.

Mr. B.T., I salute your persistence.

Be warned folks, the poor git on the end of the phone to BT, gets a little irate and a few naughty words pop out! If your easily offended, don't pick up the phone!

Sleeping In Space

Well I've been away for a few weeks, busy constructing new tracks for the forthcoming Tenebrism album. What began several months ago as a dubstep album, has changed drastically, to now encompass ambient, reggae, dubstep, pop etc. The good news is, there's 7 or 8 other new mashes made for the album. The bad news is, it's still some weeks/months away from completion.

As a taster for the album, here's a little ode to dreaming whilst floating through the cosmos...
