iNSECT RADIO #17 Reaganometry "Thee Perfect High"
    (get the DL here)

Reagan VanMatre aka Reaganometry has lived in Texas his whole life. Growing up in Temple, then moving to Austin, he has played in the groups: Attack Formation, BANGAAR and most recently, BOSS EYE as well has honing his own solo production work. He is one of our closest family members and has a ridiculous amount of knowledge when it comes to vinyl. Last time we released a podcast with him, we had Recspec make a video for it. This time we thought we’d make a cassette to go along with this one for those long road trips that you could throw on for hours on repeat.

Reaganometry has put together an incredible mix on cassette with some of his favorites from the massive vinyl library at his place. His house, an east side dwelling once lived in by a local BBQ kingpin. “Thee Perfect High” is also available as a cassette from The cassette is for promotional use only. Play at a loud volume in a crowded place, to ensure maximum enjoyment.

Artwork was made by one of our longtime friends, Kenneth Holland aka Caioneach of Oakland, CA. more info on him at

       iNSECT RADIO Episode #9 - Reaganometry
       "Endangered Love Suite" (direct DL here)

This time around we have done three things a little differently for our podcast series.

We are releasing a song that didn't quite make our newest release IRS-012 instead of a mix.  It clocks in at a little over eight minutes, and  we are also releasing a video counterpart as well through our youtube and vimeo channels. iNSECT TV maybe? Anyways, we really hope you dig it.

Video was put together and filmed by Laurel Barickman for Recspec (

She is responsible for everything visual we do here at the (iN).

This song is (uN)released and originally was made up of three songs by Reaganometry. He just released a split 12" LP with our brother Butcher Bear (RIP). That LP, titled "R&B", is now available from here:

This is half of the new LP, "Collage" from the man, REZ.

In 2002 he moved to Inglewood, CA and then finally on to Houston.
His creative chops and sound-scapes flux into deep meditation. 
We think the best way to enjoy this is to hear it in full.
This is hip-hop. This is from the future. This is TEXAS.
All we can say after hearing this is, 'WHERE IS THE OTHER HALF?
