When I started the website a few years ago, I was bored at work and missing VORC terribly. The idea to starting this blog (using a : | Krew joke as the name) seemed like a fun way to stay involved with the scene even if I didn’t have time to do things like Pulsewave and such, and that it would buy me a few more months of interest in the scene. Here we are five years later and and I am now feeling the urge to make some changes for myself which means I won’t be working on TCTD any longer.
This is the first thing I stuck with and worked on every day for as long as I have, and thanks to all the people who helped with content, or retweets, or comments or ups, its been really fun. The time has come, however, for me to move on and take the energy I’ve put into this site and put it towards myself. I think the scene is doing better than ever, internally and creatively and there are a number of options people can use to get their news now. I won’t be accepting new news items, but I plan to keep the site up for now as a catalog of all the information I felt was interesting these last few years.
Special thanks goes to Brady, David, Akira, keff, and my wife for listening to me bitch, working on content, and fixing my numerous mistakes.
Thanks also has to go out to all the artists who’s work is cataloged here, as well as all the readers who’ve interacted with the site.
If you are interested in following my efforts in making music and writing junk take a look at my personal website and twitter.
Thanks for paying attention, good times are coming.
Ten new songs from Pulselooper on the Brazilian label, Chippanze. And some remixes from TCTD staffers B.Leo and Peter Swimm to boot!
ovenrake got booked to provide some beats for a hip hop night in Seattle. The freestyles were hot – talent was dripping from the ceiling to the floor. Alas no picturesque DJ + MC pairing was formed that night but that was no reason to give up. Spoonicorn pounced on the secret driptape 2 mix and breathed a new form of life into these tracks. If you were a fan of the first driptape and you’re wondering “what the f? this isn’t a mixtape, where’ my mixtape??” Settle down! it’ll happen, these tracks were just so hot y’know?

I promised to use TCTD as a spam enginine for relevant projects, and here is a doozy.
