The sample pill shaped USB thumb drives I ordered from Alibaba finally arrived. I had heard that samples often get stuck in customs, but these arrived after a few weeks without incident.

Cousin Isaac is an independent musician who records eclectic electro-pop – aka “Eclectro”. His music includes elements of New Wave, Electro, Dub, Dancehall, Rocksteady, Hip Hop, and Funk, among other genres.
Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Cousin Isaac has bounced around between the US and Asia, living and recording out of a wheely-bag in Laos, Vietnam, Japan, Thailand, Hawaii and California.
On those rare occasions when Isaac performed live before the pandemic, he played with DJ Design, DJ VeeKee, and DeeJay Ziploc, who scratched over Isaac looping himself beat-boxing and sampling sounds from various instruments, gizmos and toys. Occasionally inviting audience members to come up and join him on stage, Isaac would hand over the mic to MC’s and singers, giving his shows a healthy dollop of old school Hip Hop flavor.
Meanwhile, his recorded songs veer more towards sounds like Air, Beck, Depeche Mode, New Order, Money Mark, among others.
