Electro, sometimes smooth, sometimes noisy, leaning into IDM territory near the end. A similar selection to last week's program (I guess I wasn't done with that particular mood yet).

More Brokntoys (track 8 Black Water by Vertical67 and track 12 Ba by Annechoic), two from Black Montanas (track 1 Protobiont by Dr. Lovelock AKA Hadamard and track 7 Broken Wave Encoder by Uniflux), and two from TRUST (track 5 Raptures Of The Deep by Versalife and track 10 Xylograph by M_Step).

Vertical67's Black Water is from a recent series of self-titled 7"es on Brokntoys, all sort-of experimental, all very cool. I'll be playing more from that series in upcoming sets, so keep an eye (ear?) out.

A couple things about Ben Milstein's Felonius Crunk: one, it's playing at -6% here to fit with the tempo of this mix, and two I wouldn't be surprised if I've misidentified where the downbeat is. It's a difficult track to figure out. I'm a fan of Milstein but I rarely play his music in sets. His work is pretty abstract, dark, noisy. It's worth saying too that he's terrific live, don't miss a chance to see him perform.

Felonius Crunk leads into Solid State Logic by Haujobb from their 1995 album Freeze Frame Reality. Kind of a stretch as a mix, but it's my habit to go out on a big track, and I really wanted to hear it.

And that's that. I'll be back next week with another upload on Thursday evening PDT. I think I'll play a little industrial next, it feels like a good time. (My industrial collection is pretty limited, so don't expect anything too fancy).
