MTT No. 040 / Steady Creep

ambient, anonradio, electro, hiphop, idm, movement through thought, music, radio, vaporwave // 2017-12-01

MTT040 Spectrogram

Slow IDM & Electro to close out November 2017. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Access To Arasaka / Caph
  2. Bitstream / Pylon
  3. Dexterous Numerics / Absent Friends
  4. Ghostwerk / When I Creep
  5. Subaeris / ゴースト発生
  6. MANASYt / Apathetics
  7. Chris Randall / Oblique
  8. Headset ft. Subtitle / Breath Contrails
  9. Wayne & Nick / Slev (Ghostwerk Remix)
  10. While / Rail
  11. Mike Kidd / Bilocation
  12. DPO / Endospore
  13. DPO / Isolated Extermination
  14. Being / Tide One Two Three
  15. Porn Darstellar / Dans Le Satin Blanc

Spacesettings by Headset is outstanding. A weird IDM / Hip-Hop / Jazz hybrid album... The closest comparison I can think of is Arrhythmia by Antipop Consortium. The whole album is as good as Breath Contrails.

I'm sad to say I treated Tides by Being (AKA The Wee DJs, AKA Dave Paton) pretty badly here. It's an amazing '90s IDM (or maybe Ambient?) album and deserves better than being filler between DPO and the goofy (but also awesome) Nights In White Satin cover by Porn Darstellar.

Last, I'll highlight Shadow Culture by Ghostwerk. Ghostwerk has been putting out awesome (and weird) tunes for about five years now; Shadow Culture marks his first release on a "major" label (in this case the excellent Detroit Underground). I've been waiting for this album for two years, and it doesn't disappoint.

Finally: shoutout to ellen_page. I also dream of future trackers.


MTT No. 037 / Start It Over

anonradio, breaks, disco, electro, idm, movement through thought, music, radio // 2017-11-10

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~


MTT No. 031 / Glide

anonradio, house, idm, movement through thought, music, radio, techno // 2017-09-29

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.

The MD tracks and Not Blue by Dune were rendered to .wav with Modplug Tracker. Sorry if it doesn't sound exactly correct.
