Album Notes
Back in the mid '90's Vayder X taught himself to DJ with a pair of turntables he bought off of a friend. A guitarist for years, he welcomed the challenge of playing a very different type of instrument. It didn't take long for him to be hooked. "Dj'ing brought the fun back into music for me, It became a very enjoyable expirience. The next step, of course, was to Dj my own music".

Some thoughts on where Vayder's style came from,

"There were many times where I'd meet an Electronica/Techno DJ and would spin a little with them. Being a Hip-Hop DJ and not knowing too much about the records I was playing, sometimes I'd mistakenly play a 45rpm record at 33rpm.. You'd think I would have committed a serious faux paux, however the result sounded pretty damn cool.. The only one who ever noticed I played the record wrong was the DJ who's record it was.."

"When I began to learn how production, I couldn't afford an MPC. Instead I bought a Roland MC303 which had a huge impact on my creative style. With no sampling capability, I had to learn to be creative with the sounds at hand, using various sounds in very different ways in order to get something that sounded good. I also had no idea what I was doing either, maybe that explains it more.."

"One day I heard "Yoshima Battles the Pink Robots" by the Flaming Lips. It's still one of my most favorite albums. Its an absolute perfect mix of beats, melody, glitch, indie rock, distortion and psychadelia."

"I used to record everything on my tape recorder when I was a really young and make sound collections. Yes, my family thought I was weird too.."

Quick Quotes:

"Heya I listened to the album twice more this morning and really enjoy it. It sounds like classic artificial intelligence / B12 breakbeat. I listen to it on my commute in and realize I keep getting lost in it. I make it past a few tracks and my mind just drifts away to another place. It's got a great and easy quality about it that I really appreciate - making for a terrific album even after repeated listens." - Shimone/Justes - Staticbeats (www.staticbeats.com)

"Downtempo electronica with a definite love of ambients movement. Vayder X is the work of a man with a wide array of electronic music favorites ranging from Coldcut to Boards of Canada to DJ Shadow. And if you combined those artists together you might just get close to the addictive electronic sound of Vayder X. His beats are danceable and the synths pop to the top of the mix with a beautiful tenacity. Check em out." - J-Sin - Smother.net (www.smother.net)

A Fantastic Find!
Capacity is an awesome CD; I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. It's only shortcoming is that it is too short! Love the spacey soundscapes. Is it just me, or does track 2 remind anyone else of Metroid?! :)


Five Stars! I'm loving Capacity!
Capacity is an electronic purist's dream journey, and a complete head trip. This album flows better than anything I've purchased from commercial acts in the past few years: it's a true album listening experience, carrying a theme throughout while still navigating different moods and tempos. Vayder X bravely relies on compelling synthesis and melody lines, avoiding vocals or pop structures, which is refreshing among contemporary electronic releases. Great listening in the home or car, true electronic lovers are going to enjoy this album the most in their headphones, with the lights low, uninterrupted. Capacity delivers!
