"I'm back"

A year ago, I posted two blog-postings, which was a goodbye to the "dee3"-moniker and all related activities.

I've changed my mind in the meantime - and even though I haven't been the most productive individual in the "dee3"-department of things (let alone have been showing this blog some love) - there has been and will be more dee3 related antics in the future!

Since my two last blog-posts (now removed) I've done and have had publicized two sets, which you can hear here:

And here:

I can also reveal that I've been requested and commissioned to do three other sets in the near-future - more details on these will follow as they get made and go public.

Otherwise, I'll be using this blog to announce "dee3"-related activities (obviously) and posting my comments on what I find musically interesting (or the opposite).

NEW SET ONLINE! Exclusive to 2BContinued....

Yeah - that's right: I've been so fortunate to get a brand-new set included on 
2BContinued's "Open Space"-section, where I'll be in good company with the 
likes of +Frédéric PERRIAULT (Oxytek) amongst others!

TBH, although originally intended for another podcast, I'm both really proud, 
totally stoked and eternally grateful that +Niv Margalit has decided to include 
the set here; and hands-down: I'd rather see my set on 2BContinued, than the 
other (undisclosed) podcast, the set was initially made for!

In any event, you can check out and give the set a listen here: 

Once again tons of thanks goes to Niv - also for going beyond all reasonable 
call of duty!



P.S. The previously mentioned clean-up of this blog will soon take place...

Soon cleaning up this blog...

As the title says: I'll be soon cleaning up this blog, where this blog will in the future focus more on dee3-related stuff and musical-content, in general; the nerdy, geeky coding stuff in this blog that a lot of people out there have also been glad to read about, will get moved over to and continued on the following blogspot-address:

I'd like beforehand "warn" (some of) the readers out there that some of the "nerdy-geeky" coding stuff, which has been previously posted here, not only will be removed from this blog, but also might not get (re-)posted on the "new" blog, either!

The reason for this is that some of the code-solutions that were previously mentioned and posted here, are no longer valid and/or are deprecated in some way or another; a good example of this would be the HTML5-fallback for Soundcloud's player, as Soundcloud - as you probably already know- has now already implemented and launched an (IMHO) excellent HTML5-player.

In any event, this blog will soon be subject to some spring cleaning within the next couple of weeks and most of coding-related the postings will be moved over to

Second guest-set for Chunk-FM - bumped up and to be aired!

Admitted, my first blog-post for 2013 is something that is posted with a very short notice!

I've just been informed that there's been a quick change of schedule-plans at the Chunk-FM HQ!

Hugh Mcmahon has just informed me that my sophomore appearance on Chunk-FM (via Fnoob techno radio) has been bumped up to appear on their first 2013-show, instead!

In other words, my second guest set for Chunk-FM will be aired Wednesday, the 9th of January - at 9:00P.M. GMT (that's 21:00 hrs GMT for all of you Mil-speak types out there) on:

I'd like to say thanks a LOT to the Chunk-FM crew (and Hugh Mcmahon, in particular) for letting me kick off Chunk-FM's 2013 proper - so be there...! :-)

"CaN"- and "dee3 | datamixes"-set merger - UPDATE

Here's an update regarding the merging of the "Compiling a Network"- and "dee3 | datamixes"-sets (plus some other related stuff).

As I wrote in my previous blog-posting, I've decided to gather the two mix-series, which I've got online, into one joined mix-series; one of the reasons behind this move is due to I cannot see the point in any longer operating two different mix-series - mainly due to the administrative and maintenance "hassle" that's involved in doing so.

But I'd like to also add before going on that mainly due to various life-events and personal-issues over the past couple of years that I - admittedly - haven't been too productive regarding putting up and adding new sets to either of the two mix-series...!

But in spite of my blatant lack of productivity, all of the mixes - from both series - have still been continuously downloaded (at least at a minimum of ) by the scores on a daily-basis, so it's not like the interest has gone away for any of the sets; furthermore, it occurred to me that if I was to move on with either of the two equally - and apparently - successful mix-series (i,e.: mix, make and put new sets online to either of the series) , it might be a good idea to gather my efforts in one place to make things easier for those interested in accessing whatever set I'd might put online - or already have online.

And based on the combined experiences with having all of the sets gathered in one place, as I've already done at sonicsquirrel, mixcloud and mininova's torrent-service, I've decided that the time has come to officially join the "Compiling a Network" and "dee3 | datamixes" into one joined mix-series, which will henceforth go under the "Compiling a Network [CaN]"-name.

In effect, all sets are already now available from the updated "Compiling a Network"-website and -podcast, and provisions have been set into motion regarding the redirection of "dee3 | datamixes"-podcast to the "Compiling a Network"-ditto.

As of the 1st of December, the "dee3 | datamixes"-website and it's podcast-feed will be taken down; and FYI, all of the other "dee3 | datamixes"-related sites that are out there will either be taken down - or retro-fitted for other dee3-related purposes.

The reason why I'm going to these lengths in explaining what's going on, is that I don't want any rumors to start, let alone run rampant, regarding the "dee3 | datamixes" going offline etc.

On an end-note, the 23 podsafe-sets that I currently have online, have now almost been downloaded close to 2 million times; therefore, I'd like to again take the opportunity to thank all of the contributing artists, net labels and other parties for their initial - and continuing - support over the years...

The CaN- and "dee3 | datamixes"-sets soon to be merged

With now an almost combined 2 million downloads under their collective belts (sort of speak),
I'm currently in the process of now merging the "Compiling a Network"- and "dee3 | datamixes"-sets,
as I no longer see any reasons to run these two mix-series as two separate entities.

Further details regarding this merger of these two mix-series will shortly follow...

New set online: PCM

Here's a completely forgotten set from my hand - heralding from '08 - that has been
recently found/"exhumed" from a HD, and which I thought could be fun to share with
all of you, exclusively via Mixcloud - enjoy...!

Thanks for reading (- and hopefully listening to -) this...!
