D.N.P ‘Blue Light’ is track 59 of the annual Christmas comp. Cheers to Øystein & Rune at Petroglyph for their continued support of D.N.P.

Currently feeling overwhelmed by the quality of artists on the Romeda Records roster with me. Sample the extremely varied output of Romeda in this 2 hour special originally broadcast on Radio Kaos Caribou a couple of weeks back. It also features an interview with Romeda boss Dave Lavery and an hour mix from roster artist Glitchfield Plaines

“The elusive D.N.P has worked magic once again, to provide beautifully bleak, relentless soundscapes to the spoken word of David Duell (ex Fade to Sepia/Bombers). While Duell delivers his nightmarish prose and poetry calmly, but inexorably, D.N.P has created a haunting world of industrial isolation, that truly makes the experience an immersive one”

Doom….I was obsessed with it for a number of years. The first person shooter that really hit the spot and spawned many imitators.

Browsing through the internet one day I found a complete set of original Doom SFX wav files. They were sitting on my hard drive for a while when I thought “lets see what these can do” Feeding them through a sampler and sequencer I created the opening track to this album ‘Deimos Anomaly’, the rest just came naturally.

The rules were simple:-
1. All sounds in the album must originate from a Doom sound effect
2. I can do anything to the sounds e.g. cut em, loop em, slow em down, play em backwards, add effects, etc as long as they are original Doom SFX.

This is the result of my experiment. IDDQD=GOD. All track names are taken from the various levels of the game. IDDQD was the notorious cheat code which made you invincible, hence ‘God’ mode.

Hardcore gamers amongst you will recognise many of the noises contained within, however many sounds have been twisted beyond recognition.

Big ups to Bobby Prince who created the original Doom SFX back in the early 1990s. I hope he likes what I’ve done to his work.
