MTT089 Spectrogram

Electro this week. Rocking out to some old tracks, some new. An excuse to play a few recent purchases.

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

  1. Erosion / 3 00:00
  2. London Modular Alliance / Tinker 02:00
  3. Scape One / Galaxy Of Funk 04:41
  4. Chaotic State / Cubic Rube 07:22
  5. Miotek & Salmz / First Contact (Sync 24 Remix) 11:00
  6. Dr. Futurist / The Möbius Strip 13:21
  7. Drexciya / Triangular Hydrogen Strain 16:05
  8. Morphology / Dalek Invasion 19:51
  9. Plant43 / Ubicomp Malfunction 22:55
  10. E.R.P. / Wisteria 27:10
  11. Gosub / Lost In Our Ways 30:43
  12. Dexter / Midnight Cruiser 36:10
  13. E.R.P. / Repose 39:26
  14. Vertical67 / Morphed Reality 44:25
  15. Robyrt Hecht / Time To Shift (Amper Clap's Kit Kat Remix) 48:46
  16. Komarken Electronics / Expanded Consciousness 52:36
  17. Gescom / Motor 1 56:49

I picked up the two Morphology and three Plant43 releases on Semantica last month and had intended to play them this week, but only one track by each artist made it in. E.R.P.'s Repose is also on Semantica, part of a series called Evoked Potentials. All very good albums. Pulp sci-fi outer space electro.

A lot of old favorites made it into this mix. Galaxy Of Funk, Lost In Our Ways, Midnight Cruiser... I think I've been playing those three tracks regularly since they were released, back in the mid 2000s. Gosub's Lost In Our Ways from the Low Volume Lovers EP on Frustrated Funk is particularly good. There are no bad tracks on that 12".

The mixing this week was a bit shaky but dang was it fun. I didn't put much thought into the selection, just picked good tracks and cut loose. I think I'll do something like this again next week, so check back for that.


MTT No. 088 / Wind Tunnels

MTT088 Spectrogram

Ambient and IDM to start this November. This is a pretty sleepy mix relative to what I usually play.

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

  1. Albert Kuningas / Sateenkaarisilta 00:00
  2. Brothomstates / In 03:10
  3. Global Communication / 8:07 07:53
  4. Bola / Sirasancerre 15:45
  5. The Pad Foundation / Snow Day 20:20
  6. User48736353001 / 19 Ssnb 24:35
  7. Underworld / Most 'Ospitable 30:10
  8. The Black Dog / Business Car Park 9 35:25
  9. Autechre / Further 39:38
  10. Skinny Puppy / The Centre Bullet 47:08
  11. Albert Kuningas / Lusifer-komeetta 54:34
  12. Black Rain / Night City Tokyo 58:23

The version of Underworld's Most 'Ospitable played here is a digital recording from the Footwear Repairs By Craftsmen At Competitive Prices VHS tape. I think this is the first time I've ever played material sourced from VHS while DJing. Footwear Repairs is a collection of the early '90s Underworld videos. I think the videos are all on youtube now, and are definitely worth seeking out if you like Underworld.

The transition from Business Car Park 9 into Autechre's Further is my favorite part of this mix. Further will always make me think of Quake 3 Defrag player w3sp's famous video f33l, due to its inclusion there.

That's October done and November started. Expect more conventional sets this month - midtempo space-y electro, probably some more IDM, etc. Thank you all for listening and I'll catch you next week.


Logical Aggression @ Ground Kontrol / October 2018

Posted 2018-11-01. Permalink. Tagged electro, ground kontrol, logical aggression, music.

Logical Aggression coincided with Ground Kontrol's Halloween party this year! Megaphysics and I have played the arcade on Halloween before, in 2012 I think. There were a lot of people this year, and a lot of good costumes. Was a great night all around.

DJ Dylan "GigaFright" Reiff opened the night (after troubleshooting some technical difficulties). Megaphysics took over after that, playing disco, new beat, and industrial from about 10 PM until midnight. Then I closed the night. Here's what I played:

  1. Future Holograms / Valentine ~Midnight
  2. Jauzas The Shining / Crockett
  3. Solitary Dancer / Losing Touch
  4. Ectomorph / Only In Shadows
  5. Legowelt / Hazy City Nights
  6. Rude 66 / As (12" Version)
  7. Beta Evers / Move In My Body Rhythm
  8. Tz0tzilla / Distrito Federal Infierno
  9. I-F / Il Tramonto
  10. Maria Ernst / La Muerte Es Solo El Comienzo
  11. Jauzas The Shining & G13ck / Ciudades Muertas
  12. AS1 / Mood Sequence 00.003
  13. Shemale / Hyperborean Love Slave
  14. Kill Memory Crash / Come Alive
  15. Men 2nd / Würm
  16. Ra-X / The Call
  17. Ectomorph / Crawl Of The Cthulu
  18. Identity Unknown / Wasp 47
  19. Solvent / Think Like Us (Think Like Ectomorph Version)
  20. Rude 66 / Isolation
  21. Shadowbunny / Dismantle
  22. Electroberlin / Observer
  23. Linea Aspera / Hinterland
  24. Visonia / Impossible Romance
  25. Carol & Snowy Red / Breakdown
  26. Synths Versus Me / The Confession
  27. The Rocket Series / Rocket 1
  28. Aether Pilot / Dimension X
  29. Ectomorph / In Dreams
  30. Uniflux / Broken Wave Encoder
  31. Pamétex / Slowcrash
  32. Technova / Atmosphere ~1:50 AM

My sincere thanks to Ground Kontrol for having us play music this night. It was a great time, and I'm glad I could contribute in some way.

MTT087 Spectrogram

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.

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

  1. Corpus Delicti / Last Light 00:00
  2. This Cold Night / Black Cathedral 01:59
  3. Clan Of Xymox / 7th Time 04:46
  4. Frío y Vacío / Ocultos 09:16
  5. DK Postoronnih / Dead Man's Curve 12:50
  6. Skeletal Family / Far & Near 16:18
  7. Tones On Tail / War 21:42
  8. The Sisters Of Mercy / Alice 24:30
  9. Kas Product / Underground Movie 28:00
  10. The Danse Society / The Seduction 30:25
  11. The Soft Moon / Circles 34:05
  12. Siouxsie & The Banshees / Jigsaw Feeling 37:46
  13. The Veil / Closet Floor 42:20
  14. Corpus Delicti / Mirror Wall 47:02
  15. Blood Bitch / Total Hysteria 50:18
  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.

MTT086 Spectrogram

Ambient, electro, IDM, industrial... an odd mixture this week. Another grab-bag show.

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

  1. NNYNYX / Slipgate 00:00
  2. Hadamard / Untitled [Bunker 3071 B3] 01:21
  3. Sonar Base / Blunted 02:44
  4. RS3 / A Vile Pattern 05:25
  5. Skinny Puppy / Dal 09:14
  6. Headscan / Lolife 14:01
  7. Haujobb / Trivial 18:11
  8. Ignatius / Eloper (Gasp Remix) 18:59
  9. Phoenecia / Eyebrow 21:55
  10. NNYNYX / A Thousand Young 26:51
  11. Uniflux / Hypaedrone 29:36
  12. Anthony Rother / Biomechanik (Internal Groove Mix) 33:48
  13. Poison Arrow / If You Don't Love Me (I'll Cut Your Face) (Razor Dub) 37:13
  14. DPO / Germ Cells 43:21
  15. Dark Vektor / Espeluztacular 45:45

  17. Inkamera ft. Bogdan W. Rousseau / No Dead Men's Cries 55:49
  18. C/∆/T / Dull Hunger 58:24

If You Don't Love Me (I'll Cut Your Face) is my current favorite here. Something about the chopped vocal at the end reminds me of The Art Of Noise, in a good way. It's been out for about six months now, part of the excellent Pleasure District series on Exit Records UK.

I'm a bit braindead this week and don't feel like saying much, so I'll close with this:

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.

MTT084 Spectrogram

"Dark" electro this week. Drivecom, Interdimensional Transmissions, Psi49net, Transient Force, etc.

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

  1. Shemale / Tomb 00:00
  2. Ekman / Coriolis Effect 01:13
  3. Boris Divider / RS-232 05:13
  4. Micro Controlled Corporation / Life Style 08:01
  5. Psylocity / Sky 13:45
  6. Anthony Rother / Nerthus 16:58
  7. Dietrich Schoenemann / Untitled [E-SERIES01 A1] 20:47
  8. Das Muster / Geheimabsprache 22:59
  9. Hadamard / Telemetry 25:36
  10. Shemale / Vampire 28:09
  11. Ectomorph / The Haunting 29:57
  12. Microthol / mod_electro_mix4 33:52
  13. Kan3da / Outputvector 37:12
  14. GD Luxxe / My Guiding Ghost 39:40
  15. Go Hiyama / World Game 42:03
  16. Collapsicon / Six 45:22
  17. Ra-X / 1987 49:03
  18. Franck Sarrio / Untitled [Bunker 3051 B1] 52:23
  19. Ectomorph / (We Have Come To) Destroy Your Powercenters 54:14
  20. Ekman / Ergosphere 55:55

I was mistaken in the intro: both the Shemale tracks included in this mix are from Hell Transformation Screens, their release on Last Known Trajectory. I absolutely love their music, and every October I dig it up to play. Also every October I'm confronted by (and disappointed with) their choice of name. They've just released a new album on Tabernacle Records after a five year hiatus; vinyl only, unfortunately.

Three tracks from the label Interdimensional Transmissions feature in this mix. I'm a big fan of IT, and of Ectomorph in particular. (and I've got both the shirt and the stack of records to prove it). Ectomorph are releasing a new album, Stalker, on the 31st; the samples sound gorgeous.

I'm happy with this one. Some real all-time favorite tracks made it in (The Haunting...) and on the whole the set came together well enough. Levels are a bit uneven (thinking of Destroy Your Powercenters), but I hope not annoyingly so.

A fine night, good music for the weather & time of year.
