Downtempo & IDM tunes at ~98. I didn't have any special plans for #300 & I felt like hanging out with some comfortable head-nodding music. This mix features a few tracks by Push Button Objects and Takeshi Muto as well as long ones by Drøn, Metamatics, RS3, and more.
Earlier this month Mixcloud announced a major change to its platform. I can't afford a "Pro" subscription so, if I'm reading that linked post right, I'm faced with a choice: continue to upload after November 2022 and choose a maximum of 10 mixes that will be available or stop uploading after that same deadline and all my mixes currently on Mixcloud will remain accessible. I choose the latter. The shows there now will remain streamable for as long as Mixcloud will host them and I will no longer be publishing new sets to the service after this month.
I've been using Mixcloud because 1. it was free and unlimited and 2. they are licensed to play copyrighted music. I think DJing on the internet is often in a kind of grey area between advocacy and piracy, a problem Mixcloud solved by paying the appropriate fees and royalties. I'm much more interested in advocacy than piracy so I'm grateful for and will miss using Mixcloud. I bear them no ill will, I wish them well, and I hope to see them succeed.
An hour of electro old & new at approx. 130. New tracks include one from Cignol's forthcoming Binary Choices EP and one from Exhausted Modern's recent Notions Of Causality EP. Plus a few tracks from CPU Records, a few from Pyramid Transmissions, and a long one by Silicon Scally.
Galaxy Of Funk by Scape One. Written & produced by Kurt Baggaley, design by Plaxtika.com. Released on Drivecom Records in 2004. Vinyl, 12" 33 RPM, cat# dcom002. Flac, 16bit/44.1khz, ~138M. Tracklist and credits from the label artwork. Durations & file properties are from my stored recordings of the vinyl. BPM I tap-tempoed (and is probably wrong).
Smashing through some electro for this first show of November 2022. 133 rising to somewhere close around 140. No new tracks this time I'm afraid, but some big tunes by Chromatix, Ectomorph, Morphogenetic, Mr. Velcro Fastener, and more.
Ambient & vaporwave music to close out October 2022. This mix features 7 (!) tracks from the Restless Dreams: A Tribute To Silent Hill compilation on No Problema Tapes as well as a particularly long piece by Scarletron near the end.
Electro (& other) at 120 this hour, a little cryptic & eerie following this month's theme. This mix features five tracks from Brokntoys (including relatively new pieces by Barking and Champagne Mirrors) and two from Bass Agenda. Plus, of course, a bunch of old and weird tunes.
We continue the spooky theme from last week with more electro, this time at ~130. This mix features three tracks from Brokntoys, two from TRUST, and two from Touchin' Bass. A lot of strong pieces here, tracks I've been playing for a long time.
Spooky electro around 135 BPM. Tracks are good, set kinda wanders, gets crunchy at the end. This mix features three tunes from Brokntoys and two from Drivecom plus new-ish pieces by Lectromagnetique and Serge Geyzel.
