Tough loud electro and electro bass up around 135 BPM. Most of it from
Florida. I might be working out some aggression here. Features tracks
by Dynamix II, Code Rising, Ohverclock, Phonotronix, a few DJ Wreck
(AKA Salim Rafiq AKA Gucci Bass) remixes, and more.

I feel like there's a whole modern electrobass scene here, one that
isn't talked about much on the outlets and discussion forums I follow.
I've got a bunch of this style from the 2000s period -
Debonaire Records, Exceleration, Frajile,
Monotone. Then 2008-2015 gave us Bass Frequency Productions,
Black Magic US, and CHP Recordings (that I'm aware of).
I'm not sure what's going on right now; I know Monotone and
Frajile Recordings are active, but that's it. I'm excited
to see where the Florida electrobass sound goes this decade.
I'm hoping for a return to a more minimal, spare, synth-y sound,
more like the early 2000s.
And now I've talked too much. I love playing this stuff but it only
ever feels appropriate in the summer months, August in particular.
I had a track cued up to play after Pledge Your Allegiance but
the timing didn't quite work with the vocal outro, unfortunately.
I'll be back next week, same time and place, with something faster.
Most of these are tracks played before on this radio show, and tracks
I've been playing for years in general. Longtime favorites of mine.
These selections aren't all strictly from Florida, so this is more of
a mood, a bass attitude.
I do want to draw attention to one record, though, and that's
Miami Bass Classics 5 on Wicked Mix, where the special mixes
of tracks 18 and 20 come from. It's a remix service record that I
picked up at Platinum Records some time in the early 2000s.
As it says on the label: "DJ USE ONLY, NOT FOR PUBLIC DISPLAY OR
COMMERCIAL USE". The mixes all work to make the tracks sound much
more west-coast to me, breaks and electro by way of California. (Even
the Unknown DJ track sounds somehow more west-coast). I like
it; I like these versions more now than when I first bought
I'll be back next week with more bass and some of my favorite 2000s Florida
electro records. Faster and tougher than the music in this hour. Will
try to be less lethargic on the mic, and will also try to leave myself
enough time to read the tracklist in full.
The usual time and place, live on aNONradio Thursday night PDT (Friday
This is a very lazy set - most of these tracks are played from beginning
to end - but the music is good, so maybe I can be excused. There is one
rude edit at 55:54, done to make Give It To Em longer so I wouldn't
need to play another track. I've got some recent purchases queued up
to play next week (and next month), so check back for that.
(Yes, I did play Listen To The Music by Techmaster P.E.B. twice.
My mistake, I wasn't paying attention. It's sort of funny in retrospect.)
Lots of good music here; 86 tracks in under five hours. We were both
moving at a pretty good pace. Most of my set was drawn from this month's
MTT radio shows. Megaphysics played a lot of stuff I'd never heard before,
I believe he's been digging for bass out in the shops in PDX.
Thanks once again to everybody hanging out and listening, and to Ground
Kontrol for having us.
There are two different artists named Silicon featured in this mix. Track 6,
Positive, Negative, is by the Silicon of Silicon Bass Experience fame,
who discogs tells me is a person named Marc Pomeroy. Track 19,
ID0, is by Silicon AKA Heath Brunner. Proper track credit is
important to me, so I hope that clears up any confusion.
The two new tracks included here are Ohverclock's Rezonation
and Computron's remix of Mathematic Universe. Rezonation is
on the excellent Electro Empire records, one of Dominance
Electricity's sublabels. The Computron remix is from Máquinas Deseantes
by Sbles3plex, one of my favorite albums from the last few years.
And that's it. Pretty loose mixing again this week, but energetic.
Oh, if you hear any crackling noises in this recording, it's because
the potentiometers in my DJ mixer need to be cleaned. (The bass pots
in particular). Sorry about that. I'll continue the upward tempo
trend next week, so check back if you like fast bass music.
