DJ Megaphysics and I played our regular show at Ground Kontrol last night. No theme this time, just selecting music we've been listening to over the month.

Megaphysics opened the night with some house-y and wave-y music, on the slower end of things. His set here features a couple of nice Twin Peaks references; see if you can spot them. Here's his tracklist:

  36. Ghentlon / Techno Dream
  37. Raiders of the Lost Arp / Arrival
  38. Boo Williams / Eternal Mind
  39. Unknown Artist / Untitled 01

I played the latter half of the night, running back a combination of my recent radio shows. Electro, IDM, and Synthwave, accelerating into a little Dubstep at the end. Here's my list:

  1. Reedale Rise / Foliage ~11:30 PM
  2. Miotek / White Funk
  3. Tourist At Home / We've Got Strength In Numbers
  4. Mitch Murder / Bertone's Theme

  9. Paul Blackford / Hydro Glide (Ali3ns3xtoy Remix)
  10. Drexciya / Song Of The Green Whale
  11. Reedale Rise / Keep Sleeping

  33. Dimomib / Hip Shop
  34. Distance / Delight
  35. Plant43 / Neon
  36. Delayscape / Last Day Of Spring
  37. 2562 / Basin Dub
  38. Bandulu / Isn't It Time

Finally, Megaphysics got in one last track to close the night. I like to imagine that in some alternate universe this (or perhaps some other KLF song) was on the Twin Peaks soundtrack.

  1. The KLF / Build A Fire ~1:40 AM

Thanks as always to Ground Kontrol for having us, and for everyone who listened & enjoyed the tunes.

MTT085 Spectrogram

This week: a mixture of Dutch electronic music (Bunker, Creme, Viewlexx) and bits of electro and synthpop. Less Dutch electronic than I expected to play, come to think of it.

Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Squadra Blanco / Berg Hotel 00:00
  2. Future Holograms / Valentine 01:32
  3. Jauzas The Shining / Crockett 03:20
  4. Solitary Dancer ft. Marie Davidson / Emails 2 Myself 06:01
  5. I-F ft. Nancy Fortune / Holographic Voice 10:11
  6. Legowelt / Hazy City Nights 13:08
  7. Rude 66 / As (12" Version) 17:10
  8. The Parallax Corporation / Slowflight, Runner 20:56
  9. Kassen / Walking, Breathing 21:45
  10. Shemale / City Of The Dead 23:54
  11. Tz0tzilla / Distrito Federal Infierno 26:34
  12. I-F / Il Tramonto 30:10
  13. Jauzas The Shining & G13ck / Ciudades Muertas 31:55
  14. Adaptive / Eschelon 35:22
  15. Rude 66 / Black Sabbath 38:42
  16. The Soft Moon / Desertion 45:10
  17. Sons Of Magdalene / The Whip 48:40
  18. Shemale / Succubus 51:28
  19. Squadra Blanco / A Gentle Murder 57:32

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.

Also worth mentioning are the two Aztlán tracks: Distrito Federal Infierno by Tz0tzilla (AKA Aliensextoy), and Ciudades Muertas by Jauzas The Shining & G13ck. Both those tracks and their full releases are excellent.

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.


Logical Aggression @ Ground Kontrol / July 2018

Posted 2018-07-26. Permalink. Tagged disco, electro, ground kontrol, logical aggression, music, techno.

  2. Dangerous Frontiers / South Central
  3. Legowelt / The Soul Of A City
  4. Zwart Licht Kommando / London
  5. Solitary Dancer / Birth Of Saturn
  6. Derrick May / Kaotic Harmony
  7. Shanti Celeste / SSS (OG Cut)
  8. Peverelist / Better Ways Of Living
  9. Miotek & WRTH / Our Funk (Radioactiveman Remix)
  10. Indio / Armenian Eyes
  11. Micronaut / Quadstepper
  12. Annie Hall / Sky Watcher

  34. Rising Sun Systems / Freebasin' For David Bohm ~1:50 AM

A repeat of MTT073 and chunks of MTT072. Lazy, but I was tired, so I reached for something fresh in my mind. Glass & Spiders goes really well with Caro's Crystal Castle; that's an idea worth exploring for a future set.

MTT072 Spectrogram

Disco. House? Another CBS-inspired show.
Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. So Takahashi / Pattern #15 [-8%] 00:00
  2. Raiders Of The Lost Arp / Arrival 01:03
  3. Patrick Cowley / Sea Hunt 05:04
  4. Polarius / On The Seaside 08:58
  5. Orgue Electronique / Bitter Cherry Leaves 12:37
  6. Lowfish / No Longer Accepting Complaints 14:57
  7. Giorgio / E=MC² 19:24
  8. Skatebård / Vuelo 22:12
  9. Late Invitation / The Invite 28:03
  10. Omar S & Kai Alce / Not Phazed 30:29
  11. Legowelt / Are You Truly Debonaire? 33:34
  12. Lolita Sträp / I Would Love To Eat You Right Now 37:06
  13. Alexander Robotnick / Problèmes D'Amour (Original 12") 40:13
  14. Giorgio / I Wanna Rock You 44:02
  15. Polygamy Boys ft. Lindsay-J / Mystic Eyes 48:23
  16. SYD / Altered States 54:09
  17. Legowelt / Gina Flies To Space 55:15

Bunker, Crème Organization (a lot of Crème, 4 tracks), Viewlexx, and a small helping of proper old italo-disco thanks to Patrick Cowley, Giorgio Moroder, and Alexander Robotnick. I put this together as an excuse to play Mystic Eyes, which I recently (re)discovered.

Three tracks by Legowelt make it in: On The Seaside, Are You Truly Debonaire, and Gina Flies To Space. It makes me really happy that On The Seaside mixes into Sea Hunt so nicely.

The bit in the middle - Vuelo, The Invite, Not Phazed - is a weird little house aside. I'm not sure it works, but that's OK; it changes up the sound nicely. The Omar-S track in particular is really good.

There's a sloppy transition or two, and a few of the tracks could be swapped out for something more suitable, but then that's always true of my sets. I had a great time mixing these tunes again; can't ask for more than that.

MTT038 Spectrogram

Disco, techno, electro. Some jams this week. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Bangkok Impact / Crowdpleaser
  2. Orgue Electronique ft. Luke Eargoggle / Den Bosch
  3. Kitbuilders / Give It To Me
  4. Legowelt / Conquestadores Extraterrestriales (Remix)
  5. Gosub / Strange City
  6. Japanese Telecom / Virtual Origami 2
  7. Blackploid / Photographic Photogenic
  8. Japanese Telecom / Character Maps (Perspects Remix)
  9. Raiders of the Lost Arp / Workflow
  10. Cybotron / Alleys Of Your Mind
  11. A Number Of Names / Sharevari (Vocal)
  12. Ectomorph / Lost Angles (Manyangles Version)
  13. Perspects / They Keep Dancing (Instrumental)
  14. Gino Soccio / Remember (VICTIM OF CHANGE edit)
  15. Telex / Moskow Diskow (Original French Version)
  16. Private Lives / Private Life (Extended Mix)
  17. Solvent / My Radio
  18. Bangkok Impact / Traveller (Part 2)

The Strange City - Virtual Origami 2 - Photographic Photogenic segment is a neat little Gerald Donald-ian diversion in the middle of this mix. It's pointed out on the discogs page for Blackploid's Inhaltsverzeichnis EP that Photographic Photogenic sounds a lot like Virtual Origami 2; the commenter was right, and it makes for a nice (and very quick) little mix.

All of the old "real" disco tracks included here (Remember, Moskow Diskow, arguably Sharevari) are unauthorized bootlegs. It still surprises me that something so difficult to manufacture as vinyl gets bootlegged that way.

Private Life is one that made it into the shops when I was actively buying records in ~2007. It's one of my favorites. Private Lives, the artist, turns out to be Cylob & Ed DMX. (According to discogs, anyway).

Finally, My Radio by Solvent. From the second of the three Disco Nouveau records, which I've mentioned before. I'll say again: that compilation is extremely good. This mix includes two other tracks from it, Lost Angles and They Keep Dancing. But My Radio takes the prize. A song of loss and disappointment direct at a radio. Look up the lyrics!


MTT No. 037 / Start It Over

MTT037 Spectrogram

Some low-key spacey electro this week. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Lazer Kontinent / Telenet
  2. Scape One / Timelapse
  3. Electroberlin / Spin Me Round
  4. Dark Vektor / Patetic
  5. Ares Voo / The One
  6. Electroberlin / Observer
  7. Autechre / Bike
  8. ITPDWIP / Haguenesse Wind
  9. Zainetica / Teleport
  10. Shann-X / Earthly Abyss
  11. The Outsider / Cosmoship
  12. Charlie / Spacer Woman
  13. Daddy Long Legs / Intergalactic Lover
  14. Xformxs / Ailama
  15. Xformxs / Outro

There are a couple of odd selections in this. The Ares Voo track is a nice bit of psybreaks, found on Ektoplazm. Zainetica's Teleport is a neat old track from the Xynthetic netlabel. Finally Bike, by Autechre, but that probably doesn't need explanation.

And then Spacer Woman. The version I have is a bootleg from 2005, bought February of 2006. (I still have the receipt). I wanted to hear it, so here it is. Plus it's an excuse to smash Intergalactic Lover in.

I'm a spacer woman, don't you worry 'bout me~

MTT034 Spectrogram

A loose mix of spooky four-on-the-floor stuff. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Orgue Electronique / Le Notti Del Terrore
  2. Marco Bernardi / Catman's Going To Get You
  3. Beta Evers / Don't Be Afraid
  4. Squadra Blanco / The Dream That Doesn't Stop
  5. G.D. Luxxe / Future On DVD

  9. AS1 / Walking On Fire
  10. Photodementia / Drux
  11. Nancy Fortune / Analogically Reacting
  12. Ectomorph / Only In Shadows
  13. Rude 66 / Angst Bleibt
  14. Syncom Data / UnphAzD (Strings Attached Mix)
  15. Pitch Mode / 230408
  16. Vincent Koreman / Abandon Yr Goals
  17. Private Entertainment / In The Woods (Venus Noir Mix)
  18. Unknown / UnTrak

Warning: this one gets a bit crunchy at the end. The last 10 minutes in particular.

Not too dissimilar from what I've been playing this month. Bunker, Crème Organization, IT, Viewlexx. A little more disco-y, or techno-y, or house-y.

Squadra Blanco's Night of the Illuminati deserves a special mention. A fantastic Legowelt sideproject (in case it wasn't obvious). It should be heard by everyone.
