More recent releases on Firtscask and Bugklinik Records have shown an interest in sample related breakbeat driven jungle/"..."core music, but the more recent Ceerial Port EP is back on the acid bus. Some of Ceephax's music is still only available as poorly recorded bootlegs. Music Ceephax's music mainly takes the sonic styles of vintage Roland drum machines TR-909, TR-606, TR-707 , Roland synthesizers TB-303, SH-101, Korg MS-20, and a Yamaha DX. This music used to be recorded onto a cassette tape deck and allegedly still is occasionally for its specific quality. This primitive Acid House aesthetic and methodology has countered the popularity of computer-based (esp.
laptop) music. Ceephax has also been known to use an Amiga 1200 for releases such as "Hardcore Wick", again showing an interest in the aural aesthetics of ancient dance music from the late 80's and early 90's. Hardcore Esplanade and Exidy Tours showed a more modern approach with faster breakbeats (esp. Amen) and the like, but still keeping the a&d and computer game-like Commodore 64 synth sounds very close at hand. Other Projects Andy has collaborated a number of times with his brother Jonny and Phillie T, all members of the Chelmsford Film Society, in acting and in comical side projects such as rap outfit The Odd Job Men and improvised blues project The Chelmsford Blues Explosion. This has also provided a lot of the soundtrack work in Chelmsford Film Society, resulting in the release of "The Crisp Chronicles Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" on WeMe Records.
