A Rather Unexpected Drum n’ Bass Triptych

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 06:32:31 +0000

If You Have To Ask You Will Never Know by Ultraklystron Much to even my own surprise, I had ten more big Drum n’ Bass tracks in me this year, resulting in If You Have To Ask You Will Never Know, my 3rd LP in that genre this year. This time, I actually waited to […]



Neo Yokio is about to get lit…

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 17:17:35 +0000

Why a tribute to the Netflix X Jaden Smith X Ezra Koenig X Nick Weidenfeld (of Viceland) anime mini-series Neo Yokio? Well, it was a fun watch, and the running Toblerone gag was oddly inspiring. Besides, I’ve released one other Rap track this year, gotta take chances when I’m feeling it. Which hasn’t been often… […]

Sat, 26 Aug 2017 22:05:10 +0000

So, I’m currently doing a big bundle deal with charity bundle site groupees which you should check out if you’ve not downloaded much of my music. After all, you get the following goods: At the $2 tier you get: Unwarranted Self Importance Romance Language Romance Language 2 Romance Language 3 At the $4+ tier you […]



Back to (Drum n’) Bas(s)ics.

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 04:49:55 +0000

Strictly speaking, I’ve not done a pure Drum n’ Bass LP since 2004 when I released the initial edition of Haven (which I later remastered and re-released in 2006.) I’ve done bits here and there on my Music For Tablets #, alpha & beta releases, on Doujinshi and on Service Attack. Somehow, the idea of […]



I was chill until the Laura Palmer Funko Pop

Tue, 16 May 2017 07:03:27 +0000

That, was a bridge too far me, and that company had vacuumed up the toy rights for way too many shows just to squander them on creepy soulless eye figures, let alone super tasteless creepy eye figures. So, a diss track 😀 Bandcamp: Funko Pops (Are Not Good Toys) by Ultraklystron Youtube:



RCA Galileo Pro Tablet Review

Sat, 06 May 2017 19:43:18 +0000

So, why am I reviewing a cheap, 11.5”, 2-in-1/convertable Android tablet from RCA? Well, one it’s a little test of whether it’s actually decent to type and do work on. So far, so good as writing this up on this was a breeze while I sat on the couch and watched TV. More importantly though, […]

Long Time No See

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 17:13:26 +0000

First things first, I dropped a new album. Null Signifier by Ultraklystron It’s also up a lot of other great services like Spotify, Amazon and iTunes. The reviews are really good so far. Also, I dropped this EP: Misanthropomorphic Widescreen by Ultraklystron I also dropped a bunch of instrumental releases on bandcamp and youtube, so […]

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 03:57:03 +0000

Ultraklystron – Most Otaku Ever [M.O.E.] Free Download I know this is something I’ve been teasing for over a year, but here it is, finally. 7 otakucore/nerdcore tracks covering Texhnolyze, Ghost In The Shell, Earth Maiden Arjuna, Fruits Basket, Haibane Renmei, Onegai Teacher & Gravitation, thus covering a breadth of anime genres and HipHop production […]



New Otakucore Hiphop

Sun, 31 May 2015 23:57:18 +0000

Calling Out (Ghost in the Shell Tribute) And in case you missed it, The City Awakes (Texhnolyze Tribute) So yeah, I’m still working on The M.O.E. (Most Otaku Ever) Mixtape. Beats are locked in, but since it’s all gonna be themed tracks, I want to make sure I really represent the anime I’m sampling properly. […]

My Blu Life: Two Months In

Sun, 17 May 2015 07:00:55 +0000

For a computer scientist and a nerdcore rapper, I’m not terribly big on device upgrades. You’d think I’d always chase new gadgets, but I’m still using the same desktop computer I’ve been using since 2009 (barring a processor upgrade before the socket was discontinued and Black Friday SSD and RAM upgrades.) Had I not run […]



This Is My Aesthetic

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 05:11:30 +0000

So, it’s not a super responsive dream site, but it’s clean and lean and will be improved farther on those notes while hopefully adding functionality. Gone are the old style style links in favor of a leaner, more modern look. Meanwhile, I’ve been on Vaporwave-ish kick, and the results have been available to my subscribers […]



Romance Language 3, Upcoming Redesign & Other News

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 22:45:28 +0000

Romance Language 3 by Ultraklystron Download Ultraklystron – Romance Language 3 From Bandcamp. In other news, I will be redesigning this site after about a decade of keeping it pretty similar. I’m not sure what all I’ll keep and cut. I’m terrible about minding this blog, so I might just throw it into archive mode, […]



Lyricalist Alpha & Nerdcore MCs Verbal Perspicasity

Mon, 26 May 2014 01:50:18 +0000

So a while back a rather interesting chart was posted online noting the unique words used in the first 35,000 words of many major MCs. Of course, being an MC, musician and computer scientist, I was immediately intrigued yet let down. Obviously, you can’t really put up the exact same source lyrics since that would […]



Unwarranted Self Importance

Tue, 01 Apr 2014 06:58:24 +0000

Unwarranted Self Importance by Ultraklystron This isn’t April Fools’ Day nonsense. Or if it is, all you have to do is press play above or here and spoil it in the comments. Anyways, pay what you want. I assume that’ll be 0 though.



Bitcoin Accepted Here, Apparently.

Sat, 30 Nov 2013 06:43:11 +0000

So I have added BitCoin payment via CoinBase to the web store. It’s rough looking as ever – I really should redo it with div and css, for now, I’m ready to take BTC (though I’m keeping the prices in USD since that’s what I payed for the material in.) I’ll admit I was a […]



Still Breaking Beats

Mon, 08 Jul 2013 00:27:40 +0000

Re-Rote by Ultraklystron Besides all of the instrumentals I’ve actually I’d finished and even in some cases circulated to collaborators only to have them choose only handful from what was offered, I also have a number of songs that were done or close to done that I’d never even rendered out because they were little […]



Legacy Content

Fri, 05 Jul 2013 15:00:35 +0000

All of my back catalog that wasn’t posted to my main YouTube channel is now online here. I decided to split that material off from my main channel as I no longer know which albums these belonged to (well, I didn’t want to dig through CDs at my parents’ place to work it out,) and […]
