As it turns out he was late because he was laying down some bass lines for a new loop library he is working on. He lost track of time until he was received a call that I was on the air rambling.
It takes that kind of focus to make loops. It is a detailed business.
Among the things we spoke of was a recent session of Brazilian Lounge Music that came out of a session to produce Brazilian music loops. You can hear it HERE. We also talked about his industrial rock band, Khemique. You can hear that HERE.
Loops are a new "instrument" and Donnelly is a far more interesting interview than came out in this half-assed interview (my fault..distracted by his calling late). He works in a multitude of genres, works creating loops and while doing that also creates music that stands alone. Likewise he sees no genres--metal, Brazilian music, electronic, trap, hip- hop etc. They are all just puzzles to be solved by DJ Puzzle.
