A compilation of the last 3 EPs to be recorded in my home town of Dundee, where I lived for a short spell of 6 months before moving again.
The 3 EP's came about in the middle of recording what was supposed to be my second studio album, "Sprint". After losing the recording space where "Sprint" was being recorded, I found myself not wanting to continue the album, so I shelved it. With nowhere for me to record music and an unfinished album, I found myself at a loose end, I wasn't willing to give up but I didn't know how else I could make music. Until I was shown a music making programme by a good friend, which meant I could make music on my PC and didn't need a Mac (which was what I was using before), I ultimately found a new drive and passion for music with this new software. I then, on a whim, decided that I was going to leave "Sprint" unfinished and start on an entirely new project, which ultimately became the 3 EPs which became "The Dundee Trilogy".
Originally, At Last, We Are Here was meant to be a jazz EP, but I quickly changed my mind and made a breakbeat EP, which I think turned out a lot better than a jazz EP. Enjoy!
