Sean Fairchild - Bass

These guys. These f'in' guys! They're talented, funny, and highly creative. I like the way they electronically manipulate music and sounds that are very much analog (a good portion of the time) and the real world, and their compositions often betray a wry sense of humor. Want something different, something creative and unique - while still being palatable and accessible? CCR. And not the Revival kind. See More

As a founding member of Cats Cradle Robbers, I live and breathe this music. I make the music I do because it's what I like to listen to, and Ed and I work together effectively to crash through barriers and make stuff that pushes boundaries but is still listenable. I hope you'll take the time to check out the music and videos that we produce and let us know what you think! See More

Hey, fans!

We thought you might like to hear an early version of one of the tracks from our Mango project. Mango is a set of tracks based on seeds created by DJSE as he battled Lymphoma earlier this year. We're delighted to report that since July 20th he is cancer-free, back at work, and enjoying time with his family.

Cycle is the first of the Mango tracks that we've worked on as a duo, and we've sweetened the mix with one of our favorite collaborators - Sean Fairchild - Bass. You've heard Sean on Mydas Touch, The Mydas Beat, and BassBanjBone. Here he lends his funk touch to the Mango. Enjoy!

from the album Seeds: Work In Progress
