everything goes cold - solaris [met778 | 2012]

In mid-2011, Tyler received the following email from Everything Goes Cold frontman Eric 'Pineapple Head' Gottesman:

"do you have like 3 minutes of interesting ambient noise you'd be interested in contributing? the feel we're looking for is basically "the vast expanses of space." i was planning on getting samples of desert winds if we don't find anything more interesting first."

Having helmed a number of productions that channel the vast expanses of space, this seemed like a no-brainer and a few weeks later, his contributions to 'Solaris' were finished. It is the first track on the new EGC album, because it is scientifically proven to be better than the rest of the songs on the album.

the squidhead liberation front - what time is love [promo only | 2008]

What began as a drunken dare on Belgium's number one topiary website [Side-Line], eventually snowballed into this ridiculous (and ridiculously excellent) single. Featuring alternate mixes from Everything Goes Cold and XP8, this cover version of the KLF's timeless classic 'What Time Is Love' includes vocals from Tyler Newman and Victoria from Claire Voyant.

There is a great live video performance that can be found here.
