My first official album, released as Ryu, on my label Shoryuken! Records. Cover sketch by Jessica Autumn Huard. Sequenced on a Windows 95 PC running Cakewalk 3.0 (same setup used several years thereafter). Equipment included Roland S-10 sampler, Roland Alpha Juno One, and a Roland R8MKII. Recorded on a 4-track cassette deck.
When I sought out to make music, it was important to me that I separate myself from the rest of the electronic music scene by creating music that was personal and about something. In that (and only that), this album was successful.
