Anyone that thinks making records with a sampler and a computer will fade away is living in a fantasy. Jkettle is the home recorded/sampled (Squirrel Studios West Coast) project by Jeff Kettle, mostly built with and Akai S3000 sampler and Cubase or Pro Tools. Later it was mixed by Lorenzo Buhne (bass player for Fear/Dickies) at his studio in Pro Tools. The music reminds me of Cornelius or Air in its mish-mashing of elements and instruments. Cool stuff. Mastering was by Kris Solem at Future Disk.

Tape Op is a bi-monthly magazine devoted to the art of record making.
