The Broken Button

Another one of those tracks that I believed to be long lost, but found recently. I can’t remember much about creating this one if I’m honest, possibly something to do with sound design with some synth or another. The one thing I do remember is that the title came from being frustrated at one of the buttons on the transport section of an old controller (the cue button if I remember correctly), which was only working intermittently, it was probably just worn out from overuse.


Release Date
15 August 2019


More about Skaarl:

All types of music appeal to me, particularly the more relaxed genres - chillout, ambient, downtempo, trip hop, jazz, latin, IDM, etc. Usually I will create downtempo electronic tracks, although I go through phases where it gets a bit more upbeat, just whatever I happen to be feeling at the time.

2019 - continuing working with other artists, creating remixes for Juxta, Restless Natives, and Miss EfeMBy, as well as collaborating with winkandwoo on ‘Daybreak’ and ‘Messin’ Around’, also part of TygerTyger’s ‘Song of Songs’ collab that also featured wav-Dr, Onemedia and Dr Hailstorm. Member of the EMA collective, Blocktronika, and have been part the ACR community for several years.

“Skaarl is not only a great artist but very supportive of others on the platform, top bloke” - The Turtle Project

“Skaarl is a Cool Cat and a great musician. He pulls great heavy driving music out of his pocket and slaps you. Soft at 1st. His track ‘I Fear The Robots’ with Juxta says it all.” - wav-Dr.

“Skaarl has affectionately acquired various nicknames in the first couple of months in EMA but the main ones we refer to him as are “Trouser Man”, “Señor Trouser Man” and “Don Skaarlioni”! We’re surprised he doesn’t mention this in his bio below but we’ll leave it up to the man himself to tell you more!” - EMA

So different mate , I'm good at fixing buttons which one is broken :) Nice Chip set sounds in this cool :)

Weirdly just playing Defender while I was uploading this to Bandcamp (that one that’s on the stats screen lol), guess it must be the chipset sounds 😂

Cheers mate, if only the button was working, would’ve sounded so much better 😂
