// Q-Burns Abstract Message //
For our one year anniversary we’re excited to get an exclusive mix from another artist who has shaped and inspired our tastes over the years, which has been one of the most gratifying things about The CONDUIT series looking back at the past year. On #35 we have the pride of Orlando and owner of Eighth Dimension, sublabel EIGHT-TRACKS, and 8DPromo with a special mix comprised entirely of Q-Burns Abstract Message remixes! The most exciting thing here is the diversity in sound and vision, which is why Q-Burns continues to be one of our favorite artists here at The CONDUIT. Here’s to bringing you another 35 mixes in 2012 and thank you for the continuing support of making global music local! - Sean-Michael Yoder
// Bio //
Though his “endless summer” schedule—more than 100 DJ dates annually—and ongoing production projects would seemingly exhaust a mere mortal, Q-BAM rather enjoys this 120-BPM soundtrack. Accordingly, Donaldson and fellow Orlando producer/DJ Atnarko launched the deep house label EIGHT-TRACKS, dedicated to releasing “strange sounds that you can dance to,” says Q-BAM himself. Additionally, house imprint Agave Records tapped Donaldson to throw down a mix CD titled Agave Nectar Vol. 1, available in fine records shops worldwide..
Currently, Q-BAM is hard at work with his monthly Invisible Airwaves radio show (syndicated to over a dozen stations worldwide) as well as studio and label duties, and his constant DJ touring schedule. Recent Q-Burns Abstract Message singles include the Italian-horror film inspired “Chainsaw” for EIGHT-TRACKS, a collection of remixes by Cole Medina and Presslaboys of the classic Invisible Airline track “Innocent” (featuring the vocals of Lisa Shaw), and a revamped “Balearic Chainsaw” with mixes by Q-BAM pal Scott Hardkiss. As if there wasn’t already enough deliciously warm and gooey queso already piled high on his plate, Q-BAM is also hard at work recording a slew of tracks for an upcoming mystery project, to be launched sometime within the year.
