As mentioned in the intro, I picked up a bunch of releases from the excellent CPU Records recently during their end of year sale. Tracks 9, 10, 14, and 16 are all from those releases. Remember Members by Microlith, 000 by 96 Back, Slate Grey Sky by Plant43, and Extra Terrestrials by Cygnus, respectively. I think it's safe to say CPU are one of the better known modern electro labels, along with maybe Bass Agenda, Brokntoys, and the revived Electrix. CPU is consistently great, with 70+ releases to flip through, so go check them out at the link(s) above.
My favorite single track this week is Drexciya's Ociya Syndor. I've linked to Grava 4 at Clone's bandcamp page above, but the copy played in this mix is actually from the Drexcyen R.E.S.T. Principle 12" also on Clone. It's a tough tune, love the sort-of call & response between the bass and that buzzy sound.
I've played a lot of this on the show before (I'm going to have to put that Gosub album away for a while...) but hopefully that can be excused. It felt like time to rock out to something familiar.
I'll be back next week with more; something slower, I think.
