I am Potonka. I am a drummer that has been forced into early retirement because of chronic back pain. So I decided to write some Electronica/Dub/Groove music. My admiration for electronic music started at an early age, even as a young drummer, I remember my aunt taking me to a record store and saying, you can have any album you want, I chose "Oh no! It's Devo!", I think I was 13. She thought I was crazy wanting an album with guys with potato bodies and toilet seats around their necks. Even in my early years playing with http://www.reverbnation.com/direwolftribe I was heavily into The Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique, which incorporated slices of "other" peoples' songs and, yep, drums machines, and the Dust Brothers sounds were very cool. Most drummers looked at the drum machine as a adversary. I looked at it like another tool for making music. I also come from a metal background, so I try to keep a little metalness to my electronica.
Well, hope you enjoy my experimentations.
