Breaks, electro, IDM, and a little future garage, all at a bit less than half the tempo of last week's show. This hour features new(ish) music by Andy Garvey, Client_03, and Pearson Sound.

The first release I'd like to highlight in this is Pearson Sound's Alien Mode EP, released a couple of months ago on the great Hessle Audio. I like the title track Alien Mode a lot, a breaks workout with some fun vocal distortion (timestretching?). It shows up here near the end of the hour. There's a very good tune on the B-side of the EP too which I'll probably play in a few weeks.
Immediately after Alien Mode is Low Orbit Satellite's Objects In Space from their album Objects In Space. I spent an afternoon about six months ago going through the releases on Low Orbit Satellite's bandcamp, and I think Objects In Space is my favorite. It's four strong trancey electro tracks and one ambient dub techno track, very much my thing.
Tracks 7 through 10 form a little future garage segment. I don't know much about the style and only have a few tracks (most of it sounds like Burial's Untrue to me) but I enjoy it and it's fun to play every now and then. Mixing future garage is a challenge, one I haven't practiced much, so that segment is maybe a little rocky.
That's all the commentary for #184 I have in me. I'll be back next week with something slower, returning to my usual trend of reducing tempo through the month.
