about

I released this album under my old moniker, Destructure. I changed my name to Plasta and Skizzle (PS) when I found out that Destructure was already taken. Everything was done on my DJX keyboard that I got for Christmas when I was 16 and the tracks were composed between approximately 1999 and 2003. Some of the older tracks were mixed on my old 4-track mixer and some of them were mixed on my old computer. The sound quality is poor but nowadays I do everything on my computer for a much better sound. This is a personal album that was originally intended for friends and family and I never planned on releasing it to the public. As a result, this may not be super accessible to everyone. There are some samples of friends and family talking in here and out of context it might not make a lot of sense but I hope you dig it anyway! The album is basically a continuous mix of 71 tracks, most of which are quick musical ideas while others are full-blown tracks. Future releases will be under the Plasta and Skizzle (PS) moniker and will be more complete tracks. It should be noted that tracks 37 and 62 were removed from the original album because they sample Camp Lo's "Sparkling" and those are available for download separately for free (as is this album, but whatever). Anyway, that's all "present me" has to say about that but what did past me have to say about this album (please keep in mind that I wrote this shortly after graduating from college so...yeah...)? Here's the original album description:
Hello again friends! It has been quite a while! Welcome to my world! ALT_ESC_WORLD stands for: "ALTERNATE ESCAPE WORLD" but it can be described as "ALT-ESC" as in "alternate-esque" or an alternate escape from the real world. I think that everyone has their own escape from reality and mine is through many things but mainly music. I also find design, art and video games (which incorporate all three) to be great escapes also. My favorite musicians, artists, designers and personalities all have found their own perfect escape worlds and that's what this album tries to accomplish. I think this album accomplished part of my main idea but my music and tastes are always changing. While I'm writing this now, I'm listening to my new unreleased music and I think it also has tracks that hold true to the idea of this album even though they aren't included. I reckon that this concept will be a continuing theme in most of my music from here on out. Most of the tracks on this album are conveying a happy and perhaps idealistic view of an alternate world or an escape of some sort. Happy thoughts of childhood, good times and ALT_ESC-scapes in a video game-esque world of sorts. I tried to carry this idea through the artwork of this album and while it dos a pretty good job, it can't exactly touch on such an abstract concept that I can barely express with words. I think the best way to grasp the concept is to listen to the tracks and let your mind wander into your own ALT_ESC_WORLD. The sounds on this new album should be much cleaner and clearer than on the previous which used mostly 3rd generation recordings. This album still includes a few tracks with the same poor quality as the last one but I couldn't let them go as they do such a goo job of illustrating this album's concept. As you may have noted on the front cover, this album is blought to you in golgeous lo-fi which is about 2nd generation at this point. With the new stuff I'm working on now, I'm pulling of 1st generation quality so get crazy ready for that (hopefully coming out son)! Enjoy! Happy travels! Happy listening! Until next time...
