Dust Particles

Dust Particles - First Full Length Album from Nathan Goodman

Dust Particles was the first official CD release from Nathan Goodman as a solo artist. He wrote every song, played every instrument, sang, recorded, engineered, and produced it himself! He says the writting goes back to 1995 though the album release was 2003. It covers a wide range of styles and generes and is still a favorite playlist on many ipods. This sound was taken live and became Nucleotides. This is what he says about the process of writing, playing each instruement, and recording by yourself:

“To get a full band sound I became each player when I picked up an instrument. I put on the attitude and persona of the part. I also developed rules. For example, the song Raw Funkage. I wanted that raw jazz sound you hear on the radio where these great musicians are in a room together and just jamming live on the air. Someone kicks off a riff and they build on it and the sound eventually explodes. So that was the goal and I asked myself how do I achieve this as one person? So the rule was, play each track once and whatever happens, thats the take! So I had an idea of the riff as the bass player, so I started with a bass track and took my first take. Then layed the drum track in one take, and picked up the guitar, etc. until the song expanded to what it became. There were small rules like this that I strictly enforced apon myself throughout the creation of this album and all music I record solo.”

Nathan played his first show at 3 years old! Check out his bio.

Space Trash

Space Trash - Electronic dance musicA techno house project of Nathan Goodman of Detroit Techno and Garrett Redman of Orlando’s house and rave scene. Sporadically grabbing sound samples from Ewoks, Jawas, classic rock songs, machinery, and Boch symphony they created a non-dated electronic album that is desired by many. Drop-in friends will regularly find them in “the lab” where they would be conjuring up new beats and synth sounds from vintage analog instruments during a constant consumption of green smoke.
