  14. Fatima Yamaha / Between Worlds 47:09
  15. Rude 66 / My 909 53:13
  16. S.Slot / Afterlife 57:44

I said at the beginning of this show that I was going to play electro. That turned out to be both true and not - there's a quite a bit of weirdness in this selection. The Peverelist track: is it dubstep (or maybe garage)?. Is Armenian Eyes by Indio future jazz? I know Shanti Celeste and Fatima Yamaha (AKA Bas Bron) for their house music - so what are those tracks? These genre labels start to break down. And that's interesting to me.

Having said that, my standout track this week is a more traditional electro piece: Inklik by Pathic. Available on the Pyramid Transmissions Free Sampler as well as Interstellar Communications Vol. 1, which I still need to pick up. I've mentioned Pyramid Transmissions before, and my recommendation still holds. I can't wait to play more of their tracks.

It's a goal of mine to try and play different genres, different sounding music, within each of these sets. I believe I succeeded this week, and I'm happy with the result.

Now I've got to go clean that scratchy potentiometer.

  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.

MTT031 Spectrogram

Techno (House? IDM?) for a tired Thursday night. Unfortunately, due to a connection issue, the last 10 minutes of this episode were not recorded. If you'd like to listen anyway, then right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. The Black Dog / Train By The Autobahn (Robert Hood's 8 Mile Remix)
  2. John Shima / Depopulation
  3. Trackman / Smoothing
  4. LFO / You Have To Understand
  5. B12 / Obsessed
  6. John Shima / Final Horizon
  7. The Black Dog / Northern Electronic Soul (Part 1)
  8. The Black Dog / Northern Electronic Soul (Part 2)
  9. The Black Dog / Northern Electronic Soul (Part 3)
  10. Gliese / G-876
  11. A Guy Called Gerald / Iland
  12. A Guy Called Gerald / Indi Vibe
  13. Dark Matrix / Untitled [LSF007 C3]
  14. New Adult / Hometown

This mix is arranged around the two John Shima tracks, and Hometown by New Adult. I found the two John Shima EPs on Binalog Productions earlier this week, and immediately started combing my music collection for similar music (B12, Black Dog, LFO, etc.).

The last two tracks - the Dark Matrix tune, and Hometown - are missing from the mp3 linked above. I think, before next week, I'll look into modifying the way I broadcast so that I can save a local copy of the recording.
