Commercial MIDI drum patterns playing sampled 808 kit running underneath "live," MIDI-triggered analog beats (some effected and some not). Song development: pure grid with patterns being turned on and off.
"Electro Groupie" [mp3 revised and moved to Bandcamp; a "beats only" version is also on Bandcamp]
Similar to "Selectro One" in setup but with a little more conventional song structure and less weird effects. In all these recent songs I am letting the drums and effects sounds determine the melodies.

Took "Broomlike (Remix)," subtracted the bass line and added some new percussion parts. A MIDI pattern is triggering a commercial software drum kit as well as an analog rhythm box. In the latter some of the beats are getting live effects treatment using an insert cable to a laptop running Reaktor as a standalone plugin host.
Update: A couple of slight tweaks to remove bad rubs between sounds.
