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.

Free release from Reedale Rise. Mellow. Just about every track stands out on this. I'm especially fond of Duv for the 70 BPM dub sound.

Dub & Reggae for a tired summer night. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  15. Bullwackies All Stars / Dubbing Around
  16. Dub Syndicate / Gather At The River
  17. Max Romeo / One Step Forward

This week I discovered that I own less dub than I thought. Which is why few albums are featured here.

I'll highlight two albums this week: Dub Syndicate's excellent Pounding System, and Linton Kwesi Johnson's LKJ In Dub. Pounding System has been a favorite of mine for years. Beautifully spacey stuff. LKJ In Dub is one I found recently, through the BBC Four documentary Reggae Britannia (parts of which can be found on youtube).

Time to space out.

MTT018 Spectrogram

Dub and downtempo for a tired summer night. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Dogon / Knocking On Through
  2. Earthling / Nothingness
  3. Burnt Friedman & The Nu Dub Players / The Big Black Other
  4. Mad Professor & Joe Ariwa ft. Horace Andy / Hiding In The Asylum
  5. Massive Attack vs. Mad Professor / Cool Monsoon (Weather Storm)
  6. Automaton / Astral Altar (The Gateway Of Legba)
  7. Automaton / The Terran Invasion Of Alpha Centauri Year 2794
  8. Chin Chillaz / Konkret
  9. PFL / Mohinis Dub
  10. Wagon Christ / Phora Ride
  11. The Sabres of Paradise / Duke of Earlsfield (LFO Mix)

My copy of Space Night Vol VIII was a used-bin find, and is unfortunately in poor shape. Particularly noticeable during Mohinis Dub.

This was an excuse to listen to those two Bill Laswell (Automaton) tracks. Mission Accomplished.


MTT No. 016 / Time Slowed

Posted 2017-06-16. Permalink. Tagged anonradio, breaks, dub, hiphop, illbeint, movement through thought, music, radio.

Played some downtempo breakbeat-y stuff this week. Unfortunately there appears to have been a problem with the aNONradio archives that prevented the show from being saved. The only record of that hour, then, is a tracklist and some memories.

  1. Meat Beat Manifesto / Set Your Receivers
  2. DJ Food / Spiral Dub
  3. Bandulu / Bill's Gate
  4. Mellow-D / Cotton Wool
  5. Ian O'Brien / Homeless
  6. Michna / Believe In It
  7. Funky Technicians / Ninja (Essence Of Time Remix)
  8. Push Button Objects / Striffle
  9. Meat Beat Manifesto / United Nations (E.T.C.)
  10. Scorn / Night Tide
  11. Small Fish With Spine / 15 Levels Of The Empire State
  12. Necros / River Boat
  13. Push Button Objects / Maercs
  14. Secret Frequency Crew / Gold
  15. Dr. Octagon / No Awareness
  16. Meat Beat Manifesto / Future Worlds

A low-key selection. I spent the last week listening to Subliminal Sandwitch by MBM and Evanescence by Scorn, which may explain this. That and general tiredness.
