My brother-in-law and his family came to visit for about a week. He told me he was “brushing up” on his piano skills…
He has a gift for understatement.
It was great to hang with him (it’s a rare occurrence) and it was great helping to have somebody to help me work the bugs out of a new controller, new midi interface, etc.
Lenny Zenith teamed up with The Revolver, a young DJ from Mumbai, and the result is this.

Available for pre-order on iTunes!

Finally ran cat6 cable to the studio (I thought my days with a crimp tool were over)!
