Last season I demo'ed glitchy sample packs mixed with Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart remixes. (it made sense at the time - and still does).
I like sample packs that have a strong personality. If I wanted my own sounds I'd make my own sounds and I do. But when I use sample packs that have personality , it feel more like a colloborartion and I like that. I like to imagine how the creator made the sounds. What were they thinking? , how different is my context? What can I learn?

Next up for Ingrown is cool person's grown person. I've been a huge fan of their label (Permanent Nostalgia) and musical output for several years, so this is an absolute dream come true.

In anticipation of a bela Salt for the Hybrid Eurorack Modular we've started, I dug up the unfinished TRumBela project and cleared some space for some DIY over the next few months. I embedded two usb adapters to the casing to allow the internals get connected to laptop or midi controller without cables protruding from a drilled hole. I'll solder a few knobs today to make sure everything still works and then complete the project a little bit each day.
I would like to officially announce our next two tape releases to invite more support. First up is Avenoir from @CityOfDawn. Described as ambient mallsoft, it's one of the most relaxing and emotionally moving meditative works I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Bliss! pic.twitter.com/hStKn2D6kY— Ingrown Records (@Ingrown_Records) December 19, 2020
