MTT No. 018 / Hold On To That

ambient, anonradio, dub, illbeint, movement through thought, music, radio // 2017-06-30

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

anonradio, breaks, dub, hiphop, illbeint, movement through thought, music, radio // 2017-06-16

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.

  15. Future Sound of London / It's My Mind That Works

I spent about a month in 2016 flipping through vaporwave releases online, and came away with a few (probably wrong ideas). One, that the more ambient strains of vaporwave are pretty exciting. Two, that vaporwave often sounds similar to old illbeint. Part of this mix was an attempt to explore that second idea. The rest was just selecting tracks I could remember at the time.

I'll probably do the illbeint / vaporwave thing again at some point.
