Happy 2009

cubus mixset – 10 similarities


10 similarities is a 70 minute mix set that I’ve been working on on-and-off for the past year. It mixes together the tracks and artists that have been an influence on more recent cubus tracks (and tracks that I’ve loved in general !). A lot of time has been made to make sure that all the tracks fit together as nicely as possible.

The discography section has finally been updated and the downloads section offers tracks in individual mp3s or entire zip archives and also now each track can be played by the streaming radio player.

Expect even more musical type news soon. – Pete.

About cubus


Comprising the unsigned duo of Peter Godfrey and Joe Kellam, Cubus (previously known as “Mancubus”) have spent the last decade creating Warp, Touch, Room40 and Raster Noton-influenced electronic music. Starting off with experimentation with early tracking software on the Amiga and PC, their style has matured and technical ability developed as new techniques were discovered… Currently using a combination of a Sony Walkman, an electromagnet, Jeskola Buzz, Audiomulch, MSN messenger, Reaper, Ableton Live, a pair of scissors and a microwave oven, cubus produce a range of tracks from minimal ambience to hyperactive electronica.

“cubus are an accomplished recording unit whose exploratory impulse is sincere and unflinching, but their desire to push back the boundaries is informed by a notable sense of melody and a will to entertain.” (Jon B from peoplesound (remember that ?!), ages ago..)
