MTT038 Spectrogram

Disco, techno, electro. Some jams this week. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Bangkok Impact / Crowdpleaser
  2. Orgue Electronique ft. Luke Eargoggle / Den Bosch
  3. Kitbuilders / Give It To Me
  4. Legowelt / Conquestadores Extraterrestriales (Remix)
  5. Gosub / Strange City
  6. Japanese Telecom / Virtual Origami 2
  7. Blackploid / Photographic Photogenic
  8. Japanese Telecom / Character Maps (Perspects Remix)
  9. Raiders of the Lost Arp / Workflow
  10. Cybotron / Alleys Of Your Mind
  11. A Number Of Names / Sharevari (Vocal)
  12. Ectomorph / Lost Angles (Manyangles Version)
  13. Perspects / They Keep Dancing (Instrumental)
  14. Gino Soccio / Remember (VICTIM OF CHANGE edit)
  15. Telex / Moskow Diskow (Original French Version)
  16. Private Lives / Private Life (Extended Mix)
  17. Solvent / My Radio
  18. Bangkok Impact / Traveller (Part 2)

The Strange City - Virtual Origami 2 - Photographic Photogenic segment is a neat little Gerald Donald-ian diversion in the middle of this mix. It's pointed out on the discogs page for Blackploid's Inhaltsverzeichnis EP that Photographic Photogenic sounds a lot like Virtual Origami 2; the commenter was right, and it makes for a nice (and very quick) little mix.

All of the old "real" disco tracks included here (Remember, Moskow Diskow, arguably Sharevari) are unauthorized bootlegs. It still surprises me that something so difficult to manufacture as vinyl gets bootlegged that way.

Private Life is one that made it into the shops when I was actively buying records in ~2007. It's one of my favorites. Private Lives, the artist, turns out to be Cylob & Ed DMX. (According to discogs, anyway).

Finally, My Radio by Solvent. From the second of the three Disco Nouveau records, which I've mentioned before. I'll say again: that compilation is extremely good. This mix includes two other tracks from it, Lost Angles and They Keep Dancing. But My Radio takes the prize. A song of loss and disappointment direct at a radio. Look up the lyrics!

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. 036 / The Driven

anonradio, electro, movement through thought, music, radio // 2017-11-03

MTT036 Spectrogram

An hour of recent electro purchases, loosely mixed. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Komarken Electronics / Early Mornings
  2. Lowfish / Bitter
  3. Scape One / Elechnology
  4. Plant43 / Radiant Flux
  5. Koova / Smell Of Mammal
  6. Koova / Deactivation

  11. Obergman / Tokamak
  12. Solitary Dancer / Desire & Apathy
  13. Annie Hall / Saggitarius A
  14. Solitary Dancer / Transmitting To Heaven

Some old, some new. There's a bunch of Brokntoys in this; at the time of this post, there's a great deal on the complete Brokntoys catalog (80% off) on Bandcamp. I picked up the whole thing last month.

Special mention goes to Solitary Dancer, whose two releases on Graded (and one release on Dark Entries) are just fantastic. I've had Transmitting To Heaven playing on repeat for about a week.

MTT No. 035 / No Way Back

ambient, anonradio, electro, movement through thought, music, radio // 2017-10-27

MTT035 Spectrogram

Assorted spooky stuff to close out October. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Seele Ohne Ziel / Track 1
  2. Anthony Rother / Ich Bin Ewig
  3. The Breakwaters vs. CPU / Signal From The Dark
  4. Erikoismies / Untitled [Bunker 3071 A2]
  5. Shadowbunny / Nothing
  6. Kompleksi / Porno Tampere (Vocal Version)
  7. Hadamard / The Moral Core
  8. Zwischenwelt / Diapsiquia
  9. Coil / Box Theme
  10. Twilight Ritual / Means Of Heath
  11. Shemale / The Watchers
  12. Seele Ohne Ziel / Track 2
  13. Zerkalo / Experiment Zero
  14. Shemale / Blood Ritual
  15. Corvx de Timor / Chasing Game (Shadowbunny Remix)
  16. Shemale / Beneath The Ice

Fairly straightforward 90 BPM electro for 30 minutes, and then off the rails we go.

So Shemale is ridiculously good. I've been a fan since I found the Hyperborean Love Slave 12" in a used bin nearly a decade ago. All of their releases are good; no duds. Some of the best dark electro I've ever heard.

The Coil track in the middle of this is, of course, part of their unused soundtrack to Hellraiser. It's an amazing soundtrack - very, very sinister. And the movie is great too.

All spooked out. Time to sleep.

MTT No. 034 / Far Away Images

acid, anonradio, disco, ebm, electro, movement through thought, music, radio // 2017-10-20

MTT034 Spectrogram

A loose mix of spooky four-on-the-floor stuff. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Orgue Electronique / Le Notti Del Terrore
  2. Marco Bernardi / Catman's Going To Get You
  3. Beta Evers / Don't Be Afraid
  4. Squadra Blanco / The Dream That Doesn't Stop
  5. G.D. Luxxe / Future On DVD
  6. Ectomorph / Chromed Out
  7. Seele Ohne Ziel / Track 3
  8. Hadamard / The Horror
  9. AS1 / Walking On Fire
  10. Photodementia / Drux
  11. Nancy Fortune / Analogically Reacting
  12. Ectomorph / Only In Shadows
  13. Rude 66 / Angst Bleibt
  14. Syncom Data / UnphAzD (Strings Attached Mix)
  15. Pitch Mode / 230408
  16. Vincent Koreman / Abandon Yr Goals
  17. Private Entertainment / In The Woods (Venus Noir Mix)
  18. Unknown / UnTrak

Warning: this one gets a bit crunchy at the end. The last 10 minutes in particular.

Not too dissimilar from what I've been playing this month. Bunker, Crème Organization, IT, Viewlexx. A little more disco-y, or techno-y, or house-y.

Squadra Blanco's Night of the Illuminati deserves a special mention. A fantastic Legowelt sideproject (in case it wasn't obvious). It should be heard by everyone.

MTT No. 033 / Parallel Meanings

anonradio, ebm, electro, movement through thought, music, radio // 2017-10-13

MTT033 Spectrogram

Lazily mixed electro. Slower than last week. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Hadamard / De Sloop
  2. Dr. Lovelock / Phylogenesis
  3. Photodementia / 1 Yr Later
  4. Shadowbunny / Feathers
  5. Shemale / Pink Leotard
  6. 240 Interceptor / Untitled [Bunker 3072 B3]
  7. Seele Ohne Ziel / Track 5
  8. 240 Interceptor / Untitled [Bunker 3072 B1]
  9. Anthony Rother / Schöpfer
  10. Dr. Lovelock / The Hadean Eon
  11. Hadamard / All Life Is Suffering
  12. Nancy Fortune / First Operation
  13. Mas 2008 / U Can't Emulate A Soul
  14. Visitor / Mechanical Soul
  15. Shadowbunny / ~
  16. Uniflux / Broken Wave Encoder

Black Montanas, Bunker, Viewlexx, and a few odds and ends.

There's an unfortunate zipper noise at the five minute mark thanks to a technical issue with my playback unit. (I suspect it's a JACK buffer underrun occuring on my SCS.4DJ due to bad throughput from a USB flash drive.)

Shadowbunny is the artist I'd like to highlight this week. I've been a fan since O, cmuzik016, in 2012. The music Shadowbunny has on bandcamp sort of rides a line between electro and... witch house? (Remember witch house?). Really cool stuff. I'm a fan.

MTT No. 032 / Watching You

anonradio, electro, movement through thought, music, radio // 2017-10-06

MTT032 Spectrogram

An hour of spooky electro all mashed together. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Shemale / Invocation
  2. Franck Sarrio / Untitled [Bunker 3051 A1]
  3. Alex Nôrinh / Untitled [Bunker 3066 B2]
  4. Transparent Sound / Ain't No Time
  5. I-F / Secret Desire
  6. Anthony Rother / Die Macht
  7. Sync 24 / Sense 3
  8. Soul Weaver / Phantom Movements
  9. Ectomorph / Subversion (Dub)
  10. Dietrich Schoenemann / Untitled [E-SERIES 01 B1]
  11. Dietrich Schoenemann / Untitled [E-SERIES 01 B2]
  12. Composite Profuse / Children of Qana
  13. Shemale / Aerobicide
  14. Jauzas The Shining ft. Victoria Lukas / Reality
  15. Ekman / Phantom Energy
  16. Franck Sarrio / Untitled [Bunker 3051 B2]
  17. Luke Eargoggle & Rutherford / Stalkers Behave
  18. The Pulse Projects / Ice Cold Funk Series 004
  19. The Pulse Projects / Ice Cold Funk Series 024
  20. Dystronic / Eiswelt

There's a whole bunch of Bunker in this. Shemale, Composite Profuse, Alex Nôrinh, Franck Sarrio, Artists Anonymous #2, etc. There's a lot of great spooky/dark music on Bunker; I'll definitely be playing more this month.

The E.C. Breeders EP (E-SERIES 01) by Dietrich Schoenemann deserves special attention. Every track on it is phenomenal... the one not included in this mix, side A track 1, is a cool grindy thing. I'm lucky to have a found a copy of it in a used bin in Seattle.

I observe two theme months every year. "Holiday Months" I guess you could say. August for Miami Bass music, October for Halloween-y music. So expect three more dark and/or spooky shows this month.

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.
