MTT No. 104 / Some Place Else

MTT104 Spectrogram

Wandering my way through some techno this episode. I've been in a techno mood this month, it seems.

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

  1. Qybrid / Middle Hemisphere 00:00
  2. Inigo Kennedy / Hamingjusamur 01:17
  3. Zwart Licht Kommando / U.L.F. 04:17
  4. Space DJz / Contact 07:13
  5. Shawn Rudiman / The 3rd Mission 11:16
  6. Steve Stoll / Sideways 14:57
  7. Max Duley / Sticky Fingers 17:29
  8. Doghead / Bagel 21:43
  9. Cyp / Territory Of Fear 23:56
  10. Ronin / Numero Cycrypto_23 27:39
  11. Inigo Kennedy / Telegraph 31:27
  12. TD5 / Tunnel Tones 35:12
  13. Surgeon / Whose Bad Hands Are These? (Autechre Remix) 37:33
  14. Damon Wild & Echoplex / Fraction Off The Past 42:42
  15. Dan Snazelle / CBCA 46:20
  16. Minotaur Electronics / The Source 48:58
  17. 3 Phase / Current 1 52:10
  18. Morgan / Flowerchild 56:04

A couple of old favorites made it into this - Contact by the Space DJz, and Flowerchild by Morgan. Contact has a rolling filtered delay sound that I love, a sound that's also on many old Bandulu tracks. (Which makes sense, because Space DJz is Jamie Bissmire & Ben Long of Bandulu). And Flowerchild is simply massive; I regret that I didn't time the mix right and couldn't play the track in full. The version played here is from The Advent's excellent Kombination Research compilation.

This doesn't flow quite right, and the mixing is overall uneven. But! There are a few nice transitions (Territory Of Fear to Numero Cycrypto), and I like all of these tracks. Good enough.

Electro this week; working through some tracks I've been meaning to play.

  1. Anthony Rother / Datenbits 00:00
  2. The Advent / Space Time = C 01:25
  3. Dynarec / First Machines 04:37
  4. Das Muster / Horizontale Drehung 07:10
  5. Tactical Systems / Paradigm (Sense) 09:17
  6. Luke Eargoggle / Worship Services 12:07
  7. D.I.E. / Space Travel 16:29
  8. Elecktroids / Midnight Drive 19:39
  9. VCS2600 / Ion Teleportation 24:27
  10. Dynarec / Out Of Bounds 27:09
  11. Steve Allman / Evolution Technology 30:07
  12. Slaves Of Sinus / Opposite of the Past 34:34
  13. Jostronamer / Cairo 37:49
  14. Scape One / Regression Analysis 41:32
  15. Stingray313 / Detroit Science Center 44:52
  16. Morphology / Journey's End 49:11
  17. Gosub / Mind Travel Method 53:37
  18. The Other People Place / Moonlight Rendezvous 58:10

A few tracks by Kurt Baggaley (Scape One, Tactical Systems), a few by Dynarec, a couple of bits from Bass Agenda's Various Objekts compilations. Dynarec's Out Of Bounds in particular is a favorite of mine, from their excellent LP Overland Travelling on Nature Records. Found that one in a used bin at Anthem ~10 years ago.

This mix was thrown together as a reason to play Gosub's Mind Travel Method, a track I've been holding on to for a while. It doesn't quite work - the pacing is off a bit - but that's OK. Was a good way to spend an hour.


MTT No. 102 / You Can't See Us

MTT102 Spectrogram

Detroit (and Dutch, and Australian...) electro this week. Fast and loose.

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

  1. Ectomorph / IT01 Loop 3 00:00
  2. Agent Patrick & ShapeShiftr / Night Vision 01:07
  3. Andrew Red Hand / 8000 KM To Go 05:25
  4. D.I.E. / Programming 07:28
  5. Keith Tucker / (Techno) It's On My Mind 10:25
  6. Uni / Latch 15:05
  7. Drox / 2.2.1 16:38
  8. DJ Godfather / Under The Abyss 18:29
  9. Cosmic Force / Masterblaster 21:00
  10. Ectomorph / Parallax View 24:14
  11. Venechor / Dim 8's Two 28:02
  12. The Advent / Let Us Take You 30:42
  13. Silicon & Lowsh / Untitled [V-989 B2] 34:58

  19. Perception / Mirage 51:55
  20. Shake / Freeform 56:20
  21. Stingray313 / Sphere Of Influence 57:40

This selection is similar to what I played back in MTT 055. A few tracks from Southern Outpost, a couple from Clone's The Men You'll Never See comp, one from The Advent's label Kombination Research, and then a whole stack of Detroit vinyl.

Dim 8's Two by Venechor (AKA Laura Grabb) has been a secret weapon of mine for a long time. Grabb has a bandcamp page full of proper hardcore techno, but those two Venechor tracks are my favorite. My copy is from the used techno bins at 360 Vinyl, and looks like it's been kicked around a bit.

Levels are pretty uneven during this show, and the whole thing is sloppy. But I managed to play Mirage and had a good time; that's enough for me.

MTT099 Spectrogram

Electro, house and techno this week. Leaning on tracks that are easier to follow - kicks on 1 and 3, similar to MTT093.

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

  1. =UHU= / This Is Revolution 00:00
  2. Sbles3plex / Volem Plastics 02:54
  3. Elecktroids / Algorithm 07:12
  4. NRSB-11 / Market Forces 10:19
  5. DMX Krew / Heisenberg 14:13
  6. MNLTH / Flektro 17:28

  17. Danny Scrilla / Eclipse 55:11
  18. Danny Scrilla / Ancient Musical Box 58:16

I picked up Datassette's Mannequin On The Run EP a couple days ago and threw this set together as a way to play a few tracks from it. Those Datassette tracks are definitely the highlight this week. That and the two NRSB-11 tracks. And Elecktroids' Algorithm, Sbles3plex' Volem Plastics, Solitary Dancer's Birth Of Saturn... better stop before I repeat the entire tracklist.

Volume levels are a bit uneven, and some of the mixing is wonky, but I'm happy. This is a good episode 99.


MTT No. 093 / Through My Outline

MTT093 Spectrogram

This week's show is a selection of electro, techno and a couple old new wave / synthpop tracks. Lots of kick drums on one and three.

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

  1. Rokton Ensemble / Runout 05.06 00:36
  2. Obergman / Quantum Eraser 02:36

  7. E.R.P. / Oretha 16:04
  8. Gosub / Low Volume Lovers 19:35

  17. Komarken Electronics / Moonlight Beat 43:10
  18. =UHU= / New Wave 46:02

  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.

MTT091 Spectrogram

Slightly more mellow this week. Electro, IDM, techno, etc.

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

  1. Aepiel / Nineteen 80 00:00
  2. Ali Khan / Space 03:10
  3. Holger Flinsch / Tenpres 07:42
  4. Model 500 / Starlight (Soultek's Falling Stars Mix) 11:25
  5. Scape One / Escape To Paradise 15:39
  6. Il.Ek.Tro / Carbon Academy 22:18
  7. Numbercult / Entropy 25:06
  8. Micronaut / Utopian Dub 28:21
  9. Herr Wacher / Heliopause 32:02
  10. Supreems / Stream Of Consciousness 36:29
  11. The Black Dog / Cost II 41:26
  12. Boards Of Canada / June 9th 45:03
  13. Supreems / Close Your Eyes (And Feel) 47:57
  14. Brian Eno / Fractal Zoom (Separate Time Full Length) 57:06
  15. Galaxy Toobin' Gang / Friday Afternoon Toobin' 57:51

This selection was inspired by the Close Your Eyes (And Feel) EP by the Supreems. I heard it a few weeks ago and was blown away. Picked up a copy as soon as I could.

The first two tracks are both from the excellent Dewtone Recordings label. I found Dewtone through a recent post on Reddit's dubtechno forum. There's some great chill ambient music and dub techno in their catalog. Painting The Sky by Aepiel, Zen Flashcards by Ali Khan, and Plant Intelligence by Lav all stood out to me as both unusual and good.

I'm happy to have finally worked Fractal Zoom by Brian Eno into one of these shows, even if the mixing was sketchy. It's one of my favorite songs; I love how loose the drumming in it is. Love everything about it, really. Nerve Net in general is underrated, I think.
