about

Essential Programming is the very first album by ®adår ever to be released in a physical format. The tracks are a collection of the most popular out of previous albums and Soundcloud debuts as well as some that have previously been unreleased. All tracks on this album were produced between early 2015 and mid 2016 using multiple digital audio workstations, a small pallet of hardware synthesizers and a selection of VST instruments. Hardware synths include the YamahaDX21, Teenage Engineering pocket operators, the Korg Microkorg, the Korg Volca Beats and the Arturia Microbrute. There are also samples of classic synthesizers such as the ARP2600, the Yamaha DX series and the Cheetah MS6.

Why buy the cassette?
-There is an extra unreleased (fast paced dance) track featured on the cassette
-Some people prefer the sound of a cassette as it adds to the warmth and texture of the sound.
-It's nice to have a physical copy

Why buy the CD?
-The CD holds two extra tracks of an ambient nature (but not the extra track featured on the cassette edition) featured on NTS radio by Joe Muggs.
-It's nice to have a physical copy.
-If you are a DJ you can use it in your CDJ system.

What's with the art direction?
You may wonder why there is no product artwork aside from the low quality home printed stickers. This is to keep costs down so that you pay less. The emphasis of this project is on the music!
