MTT030 Spectrogram

A mixture of Dubstep and Dub Techno this week. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Basic Channel / Radiance II
  2. Scuba / Speak
  3. Reedale Rise / Duv
  4. Jus Wan / Stand Dub
  5. 2562 / Moog Dub
  6. Insync vs Mysteron² / Naked I
  7. RSD / Speeka Box
  8. Martyn / Shadowcasting
  9. 2562 / Circulate
  10. Saafi Brothers / Internal.Code.Error. (Bandulu Remix)
  11. Bandulu / Isn't It Time
  12. Basic Channel / Octagon
  13. Shackleton / You Bring Me Down
  14. The Black Dog / Siiiipher (The Bass Soldier's Forgemaster Remix)
  15. Appleblim / Vansan (T++ Remix)
  16. 2562 / Enforcers
  17. Gatekeeper / Let Go
  18. Distance / Delight

The selection above is directly inspired by DJ Struggle's 2007 mix Struggle Dubs 5. It used to be hosted on insectmind.com, but has since disappeared from the internet. One transition - Octagon to You Bring Me Down - was lifted straight from Struggle's mix.

More broadly, Struggle Dubs 5 was the first time I'd heard dubstep that referenced the dub techno sound. 2562's Aerial, in particular is very good at this. It's a sound I still very much like, even if it's maybe a bit dated now.

A bit of a messy mix (I shouldn't have played Isn't It Time), but hopefully still enjoyable.


MTT No. 007 / A Little Basic

anonradio, dub techno, movement through thought, music, radio, techno // 2017-04-14

MTT007 Spectrogram

Dub Techno this week. My connection to aNONradio dropped near the end of this mix, so, unfortunately, there's about 5 minutes worth of "Vitamin" by Kraftwerk shoved between the last two tracks. Because of that I'm not linking to the recording here; it can be found at (fished out of) the aNONradio archives.

  1. Alteria Percepsyne / Violet Detachment
  2. Seal Bient / Runout 02.02
  3. Ovatow / Permutation Two
  4. Ben Businovski / Communication Bridge
  5. Buntaro Toriyama / Dive Into Preparation
  6. JGarrett / Vaporizer (Kris Moon Remix)
  7. Sustainer / Monocromo_A
  8. W-Moon / Coo
  9. Phoboz / Kryostasis (Basic)
  10. Maurizio / M-4 B
  11. Maurizio / M-4 A
  12. Basic Channel / Quadrant Dub I
  13. Basic Channel / Quadrant Dub II
  14. Daniel Blomqvist / Delay
  15. Robert Hood / And Then We Planned Our Escape [126 BPM Shift]

Not a particularly deep selection. Some more Motorlab (carrying over from last week), some Thinner, a couple of proper Basic Channel classics, and a timestretched Robert Hood track to close it out.
