  20. John Foxx / 030 52:45
  21. The Other People Place / You Said You Want Me 55:47
  22. Gliese / Galaxian 59:06

Two very recent purchases are featured in this mix. First, 2.2.5 by Sol37, from the System Updates EP on Southern Outpost. That came out just this week; it's a great bonus beats / DJ tool compilation, highly recommended. Second, Whats Wrong by The Exaltics from 1000 Lights In The Sky (Part 1) on Bunker Records. This is older, a 2010 release, but I picked it up the day of the show. It's also good; probably my favorite release by The Exaltics.

For an improvised set this turned out OK. A few of the transitions don't work (Funk Release Valve to Self Destruct Sequence), and the levels are a bit wonky. But, as I'm fond of saying, the tracks are good. And I managed to play John Foxx, so this one's a winner.

Post-punk, goth rock, *wave music. Guitars, drums; synthesizers, drum machines. Having some fun near the end of October.

This week's show is Not Safe For Work (NSFW) due to some profanity.

  1. Corpus Delicti / Last Light 00:00

  16. Gloria Mundi / Victim 54:28
  17. Trisomie 21 / Joh' Burg 58:40

I'll highlight Acid Tongue by Blood Bitch this week. Released on Bat Cave in 2016, I picked it up directly from Blood Bitch's bandcamp page this year. It's great high-energy modern post-punk. And it's currently available for free at the link above, so check it out.

This hour is much closer to a proper "radio" set than what I normally do. My knowledge of old post-punk and goth rock is limited, so I was nervous going into this. (Apologies for talking way too much during the intro). Anyhow, the tracks are good, it was a good time, I hope you enjoy.

Happy Halloween everybody.

MTT085 Spectrogram

This week: a mixture of Dutch electronic music (Bunker, Creme, Viewlexx) and bits of electro and synthpop. Less Dutch electronic than I expected to play, come to think of it.

Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Squadra Blanco / Berg Hotel 00:00
  2. Future Holograms / Valentine 01:32
  3. Jauzas The Shining / Crockett 03:20
  4. Solitary Dancer ft. Marie Davidson / Emails 2 Myself 06:01
  5. I-F ft. Nancy Fortune / Holographic Voice 10:11
  6. Legowelt / Hazy City Nights 13:08
  7. Rude 66 / As (12" Version) 17:10
  8. The Parallax Corporation / Slowflight, Runner 20:56
  9. Kassen / Walking, Breathing 21:45
  10. Shemale / City Of The Dead 23:54
  11. Tz0tzilla / Distrito Federal Infierno 26:34
  12. I-F / Il Tramonto 30:10
  13. Jauzas The Shining & G13ck / Ciudades Muertas 31:55
  14. Adaptive / Eschelon 35:22
  15. Rude 66 / Black Sabbath 38:42
  16. The Soft Moon / Desertion 45:10
  17. Sons Of Magdalene / The Whip 48:40
  18. Shemale / Succubus 51:28
  19. Squadra Blanco / A Gentle Murder 57:32

My current favorite here is Emails 2 Myself by Solitary Dancer. Released by Dark Entries last year, I just got around to picking it up this month. All four of Solitary Dancer's releases so far are fantastic. Each is unique, too, which I appreciate.

Also worth mentioning are the two Aztlán tracks: Distrito Federal Infierno by Tz0tzilla (AKA Aliensextoy), and Ciudades Muertas by Jauzas The Shining & G13ck. Both those tracks and their full releases are excellent.

This went better than expected! A bit uneven though. In retrospect a track or two should have played longer, and maybe one or two could have been swapped out. It was a fun time and the tracks are good; that's what matters.

MTT042 Spectrogram

Electro & Techno this week (with a surprise appearance by Ultravox). Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. X-103 / Tephra (Under)
  2. Aux 88 / We Make Beats
  3. The Advent / Light Years Away
  4. Dynarec / Double Jix (Original Mix)
  5. Datentraeger / Manipulation

  7. Lerosa / Loss (Remix)
  8. Gosub / Last Night At The Stardust
  9. Ultravox / Mr. X
  10. Dopplereffekt / Delta Wave
  11. =UHU= / Quark Plane
  12. VCS2600 / Deep Sea Robotics
  13. The Advent / Dawn Of Light
  14. Dynarec / Opposing Combinations
  15. Automat / Hardware
  16. The Advent / Telecom
  17. The Advent / Gamma Rays

There's a whopping four tracks by The Advent in this mix, three of which are from the album Light Years Away. It's an incredibly good (and overlooked) album, full of awesome Drexciyan tunes.

Ultravox's Mr. X is included here thanks to this post on reddit's /r/electro. It happened to fit perfectly with what I've been listening to lately. (And it's an awesome song, of course).

Next week I plan to do something special (and possibly lazy), so keep an eye out for that.

Electro and a little Freestyle. Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download the mix from aNONradio's archives.

  1. Midnight Star / Freak-A-Zoids
  2. Old School Players / Jam On It [DMR41277]
  3. Newcleus / Jam On It
  4. DMX Krew / Dance To The Beat
  5. Paul Hardcastle / The Asylum (It'z Weird)
  6. Dangerous Frontiers / Don't Stop, Let Your Body Rock
  7. The Art of Noise / Who's Afraid (Of The Art of Noise)
  8. Dynamix II / Back II The Beat
  9. Paul Hardcastle / Rain Forest (Original Mix)
  10. Midnight Star / Midas Touch (Hell Interface Remix)
  11. State Logik / All You Need
  12. Nairobi & The Awesome Foursome / Funky Soul Makossa (Free Beats)
  13. Freeez / I.O.U.
  14. New Order / Confusion
  15. DMX Krew / You Can't Hide Your Dub
  16. Shavonne / So, Tell Me, Tell Me (Vocal Mix)
  17. Pajama Party / Yo No Se (Cameron Paul Remix)
  18. The Egyptian Lover / Computer Love (Sweet Dreams)

DJ Use Only, or so Mixx-It 23 tells me. Same goes for that Old School Players CD, I'm sure. And same for that bootleg MASK500...

Just having fun with this one. Recently picked up that Shavonne track on Emotional Rescue and wanted to hear it. Organized some bits and pieces to get to that point. All You Need, Scene by State Logik & Jacob also deserves some attention. The A side is two very nice electro tracks, B side is a sort of broken beat or IDM thing (despite what it says on discogs).

Good times.
