Spooky electro for the beginning of October 2020. Fast, ~135, featuring old
favorites by Ectomorph, I-F, Psylocity, and Transparent Sound plus some
new(ish) tracks by Illektrolab, JGarrett, and Umwelt.
Tracks 11, 12, 13, and 19 are all from the consistently excellent label
Brokntoys. (That's mod_electro_mix4 by Microthol,
Morphed Reality by Vertical67, Paranoid Android by Illektrolab,
and Ghost by Caron respectively). I'm a big fan of both the music
selection and the art direction over at Brokntoys, and I recommend
anybody reading this go check out their catalog (or at least the albums
I picked up a bunch of releases from Umwelt's label New Flesh a couple
days ago in preparation for October. Perception Of Heaven from Umwelt's
2015 When Future And Past Collapse EP is the one track from that haul
that made it into this mix, and it's big. The whole EP is big - dark, loud,
sometimes punishing stuff. I'll be playing more off New Flesh in the coming
weeks, as I work my way to slower tempos.
The last release I'd like to call out is JGarrett's Transgressor EP
on Omen Recordings, source of the track Objectified.
I'm familiar with JGarrett as Xyn (still got a copy of the Soil 12")
and as the head of the Xynthetic Netlabel. Transgressor is
a hard EP, dark and/or industrial techno, four-to-the-floor with the
exception of Objectified. Seems good to me, although I don't follow those
This is a pretty loose mix, I didn't spend as much time planning and
practicing it as usual. Had a lot going on this last week. I hope
it's still listenable, that the rough spots don't distract from the
music too much.
I'll be back next week with another upload to mixcloud on Thursday
(hopefully by 11 PM PDT) with show notes to follow a few days later.
And now I'm gonna go clean my DJ mixer...
Logical Aggression @ Ground Kontrol / February 2020
Tracks 12, 13, and 14 are all from releases on CPU Records. I'm
still working through a recent large purchase of music from their shop,
and they continue to be excellent. Tracks 8, 9, and 16 are taken from
Solar One Music's second and third compilation. Solar One
recently celebrated their 50th release, a sweet electro-techno
collaboration between The Exaltics and Paris The Black Fu called
My current favorite here is Recall (Live) by スムー, from the
TUMA 3.0 compilation. I love the interplay between the drums
(kick on 14, snare on 22) and the high ringing synth. The whole comp
is interesting, and it's listed as name-your-price, so check it out.
I've got my regular show with Megaphysics at the arcade next week, so expect
something low-energy (and low-effort) next show. Thanks all for listening,
and be sure to check the tracklist links above if you're interested in the
music played here.
This is a messy set, but the tracks are good. I really enjoyed playing
EBM and industrial stuff these past few weeks, though my knowledge and
selection is lacking. I think that's something I'll pursue over the next
That's October done. Next week's show will be a return to regular
programming with a set of fast (130-140) electro, so stick around
if you're into that.
There's a lot of good stuff here, but I'm going to mention just two tracks.
First, Aux 88's mix of Electronic Warfare by UR. That's
both one of my favorite Aux 88 tracks and one of my favorite Underground
Resistance tracks. The 12" also includes the original Electronic Warfare and
the excellent Drexciya mix, which might be the only remix Drexciya released.
It's a fantastic record, essential even.
Second, Ant Orange's Don't Call Me Roland from his Acid
Trax 2006-2009 release on Dead Channel. 303 (or some 303-like synth), a
good breakbeat, a pile of delay & reverb, and a chipmunked sample of
Don't Call Me Baby by Madison Avenue. It's goofy and I love it.
This one was a lot of fun to mix, and I'm happy with how it turned out. No
idea what I'll do next week. More electro, since I'm feeling it at the
My current favorite here is Emails 2 Myself by Solitary Dancer.
Released by Dark Entries last year, I just got around to picking it up
this month. All four of Solitary Dancer's releases so far are fantastic. Each
is unique, too, which I appreciate.
This went better than expected! A bit uneven though. In retrospect a track
or two should have played longer, and maybe one or two could have been swapped
out. It was a fun time and the tracks are good; that's what matters.
