This podcast contains a 27 minute track by my alter ego “Chillout Preservation Collective”. It’s kind of a dub ambient thing, and rather minimal in nature.
Why do I release tracks under pseudonyms? Well, first because it’s easy to do in this modern digital era. If I’ve got something I’ve made that I think is outside the realm of what I normally do, then I might as release it on it’s own. I’ll tell a small number of people following along about it, whether it be via podcast or my email newsletter, and blog post. It doesn’t have to be a big deal. Second, why not? When I started getting into music in the 80s, I was always fascinated by artists who released things under various names.

My wife recently got a new car, a 2018 Toyota RAV4. It’s not a fancy model at all. We only got the front wheel drive version. It doesn’t have a sunroof. And the rear tailgate opens and closes manually rather than automatically.
Still, this seemingly base model, along with all Toyotas for 2018, have something rather nifty lurking in the electronics: Radar Cruise Control.
What is Radar Cruise Control? It’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. It will make you a better driver. It will make you a safer driver. Once you use it, and trust it, you’ll fall in love with cruise control all over again.
Say that you’re driving down a multi-lane highway and you end up behind some slowpoke or large truck, but you can’t change lanes due to the conga line of tailgaters to your left. No problem! With the radar cruise control engaged, the car automatically slows down and at a safe distance behind Mr Pokey. When the conga line clears, just move to the passing lane and your Toyota automatically speeds back up.
Until you’ve experienced this as a driver, you might not understand how revolutionary it really is. You should go test drive a new Toyota and experience this. Even if you’re not in the market for a new car.
What we have today with Radar Cruise Control is a brilliant painting on top of the ghosts, or pentimento, of the old fashioned cruise control as most people know it.
