about

'Reverse Engineering (Vol One)' is a selection of covers from some of my favourite and most influential electronic/new wave artists from the late 70s early 80s. The phrase 'Reverse Engineering' is a scientific term about finding advanced technology that is beyond your understanding, taking it apart, discovering how it works, then creating your own new version from the knowledge.
That's what I am attempting to do with the songs on this covers series. Creating an 'alien twin' of the original version by dissecting and redesigning the original.
I will release one song as a free download per month, by which time my second solo album proper will be complete and available to preorder.
