You can listen to Repulsine EP and Showcase on Spotify, and also "Easy Does It" (off of Ghostly International's Prox EP and "04/04/02" (off of the Summer Compilation), also a few other remixes, etc, by searching for Lackluster.

this is an easy way to hook up with most of my compilation tracks + remix work for the past 8-9 years, and maybe you'll find some tunes you've never heard before.

right, heres my ep that was supposed to come out october 2006 but came out november 2007. its up on discogs, and im selling it. yep, im selling it. if you buy it from me, that means ive got less bills to pay and might even be able to purchase a documentary or something. i dont know.
i am trying to get money together to purchase a behringer ada8000 and a patchbay - these in total would cost 300eur. then i'd be able to start re-building my studio, and hook things up properly - which'd be nice.
there, i've said it. 300eur for me is quite a load of money - i dont have a source of income and 2008 looks like i will play a total of zero gigs, paying or not (mostly not).
so, how about you hook up the ep from http://www.discogs.com/sell/list?seller=esaruoho.
i do obviously clock in at least 581eur of bills in rent/etc, which isnt that nifty. since 2001 i have wanted to purchase a korg karma, ever since in 2000 i sold my korg X3 to get money for a flight to regina, saskatchewan, canada - which resulted in quite a few tracks that are on showcase and wrapping CD's, including "wrist control" "ging gage" "machinedrum lacklustermx280401" and some other stuff from ep's like oneoffs ep etc.
10 Ene 2008, 22:36i decided to un-tick every LL release on "full preview". you can still listen to them on the radio, but the download/full preview has been removed. i've been told to do this by people who feel that my making most of my music available for free demeans its worth, people who say that if they went out and bought a CD of mine and found all the tracks available online - that they would be cheesed off with me.
they've told me that the reason why nobody buys my records is because too much of my music is available for free - thus demeaning the music.
i've been ambivalent about this, but did give it a shot now by removing the full previews. im not sure i want to remove the 369minutes of music i've got on the Lackluster radio - it took ages to rip wavefiles, encode 128kbps and get the ID3 descs right.
what do you think, should they be removed? i dont really know, i keep flittering between "the reason why nobody buys your music is because its absolutely irrelevant toss" and "the reason why nobody buys your music is because nobody has any money, so you should give it to them for free".
anyway, here's a couple of livegigs:

"This new CD offers 13 new remixes of the large RA-X backcatalogue, by some of his favorite producers and friends throughout the years: Kettel (Dub, Planet Mu), Chris Clark (Warp records), Drop The Lime (Tigerbeat6), Kassen (Bunker), Doormouse (addict), DMX Krew (rephlex), V/VM (vvmtest) and many more. These remixes show that RA-X has grown beyond his little circle of electro lovers, eclectic sounds ranging from heavy dancefloor hitters to experimental electronics still have that little glint of heavy noisy electro, each one amplified by a different remixer."
