The first new track here is #8 CrackWorld by DJ Di'jital from his ElectroHop II EP on TRUST. I think the EP is about a year old; I picked it up last May. I've had it on rotation since. Good stuff, a good followup to ElectroHop1. It fits in the mix as a modern technobass piece to follow the Aux 88's 1995 The DJ. (And sorry about forgetting the name of this EP when reading the tracklist).

The other new track is #12 Cone Of Silence by Versalife from his Shape Shifter 2 EP on Delsin, released November 2021. Just picked this one up, all four tracks on it are great, faster than the few other Versalife pieces I have. (If you pick up a copy and also happen to have a copy of the Basscadet Remixes EP I suggest you try mixing Beaumont Hannant's Mix of Basscadet into the end of Phosphorescence, it's sick. I'm sure I'll do it for this show eventually, but not today.)

There are a few other recent (2020) tunes in this mix, namely #5 Starbase 2080 by Lloyd Stellar from The Dark Star Cult EP, #10 Model 1600 by Grammar Of Movement from the Plastic Games EP, and #13 Over The Bight by Gucci Bass from the Lunar Operations EP. I recommend all three of those EPs (and in particular Gucci Bass's Lunar Operations, I'm really glad to hear new stuff from Salim Rafiq).

Alright it's coming up on 10 PM so I'm gonna call the notes there. This is a pretty typical set for me, maybe a little predictable, and I make most of my usual mistakes in it. I'm OK with that; it's a good way to start a new year, a new series. I'll be back next week Thursday evening PST with something different, probably something four-on-the-floor, dub techno & techno.
