Bound By Gravity

Mission Specialist Bruce McCandless II, is seen further away from the confines and safety of his ship than any previous astronaut has ever been. This space first was made possible by the Manned Manuevering Unit or MMU, a nitrogen jet propelled backpack. After a series of test maneuvers inside and above Challenger's payload bay, McCandless went "free-flying" to a distance of 320 feet away from the Orbiter. This stunning orbital panorama view shows McCandless out there amongst the black and blue of Earth and space. Credit: NASA

We’re excited and honored to feature a mix from SF Bay Area veteran selector Joe Rice, whose reputation as a DJ with a grasp and knowledge across genres and eras far precedes our arrival in these parts. We asked him to delve into ambient house, and he took a wide lens to it and selected across time and space, true to form. “While there are some tracks that are squarely in that vein (Larry Heard, Love Craft, The Grid), I think back to hearing sets during the “Ambient House” era by Mixmaster Morris and Alex Paterson and being struck by the breadth of styles represented. Indeed, Morris provided my first real exposure to drum & bass (in the same set as The Black Dog and beatless ambient). This reflects being inspired by that ethos as much as weaving a thread through the genre’s mix of spaciness and groove.” We think you’ll enjoy the result – and no better way to ease into summer. You’ll want to check out Joe’s SoundCloud and MixCloud.

Save The Night

spaceconvertible_400x250

We’re extremely privileged to have a guest mix from SF’s Jason Douglas! JD is a relentless digger (and finder) of amazing jams of all eras. His DJ trajectory – starting in 1992 – from Dallas to SF has seen him in the business of used vinyl online (vinyldj.com), production (highly sought-after deep house 12″s from The Attendants), and curation (with Matt Holland) of the monthly Deep Crates club night celebrating the various corners of dance music history, and SF’s powerful vinyl selectors. We are exceptionally thankful for this mix, as not only is it packed full of the deepest Italo, it’s likely his last before relocating to Portland! Check him out at https://soundcloud.com/jasondouglas.
