about

No Island is a laptop album in several senses. Most of the tracks were composed while my newborn son slept on my lap. Somewhat immobilised I was able to set up my laptop within arms reach and most of the beats, melodies and pads were tapped out in this way. Although the basic structure of the songs came quickly the album went quickly into slow motion mode as the naps disappeared and the effects of sleep deprivation took hold. It did, however, allow for a long time to tweak the production and hopefully it shows. Following on from ‘Lost Radio Songs’ this album follows a simple 10 song format with an A (oversea) and B (undersea) side structure. There is a slight step back to a dustier hip-hop sound in some of the tracks and there is a definite attempt to achieve a grittier and dirtier analogue sound. The island theme came from vague recurring images I had while putting the songs together. Although at one time there was an attempt to tell an overt story with the tracks in the end I opted for a vague suggestion of a theme.
