Somehow, Someway

Part 1 > Mixing Italo and Chicago grooves old and new, from Jamie Principle and Mr. Fingers to Claro Intelecto’s new take on the city that jjjack built. Brand new tracks from amazing Raiders of The Lost ARP 2xLP, fusing italo, techno and deep funk sounds that only the Nature/Pigna camp in Rome can do so well. Also new deep spooky groover from Selway and reissued KDJ gems (track built from samples of Mojo interviewing Prince in Detroit!)

Part 2 > Inspired by the thick fog laying over the city that night, downshift to a dubbed out and laid back set of electronic listening expansions from the likes of Pub, Maus & Stolle and Theorem. Ideal for one of those long spooky drives, or when you need an hour in a salt tank to just dec o m p r e s s.

Zach, Part 1 > We are VERY proud to host a live in-studio DJ set by Chicago’s own ‘Smoothtrack’ Zach Lubin. He has brought his quickmix \”hands on\” DJ style to Holland, Spain and Belgium to DJ alongside all-stars like Claude Young, Richie Hawtin, The Advent and Laurent Garnier. Hear Zach go nuts in a Mayday style cut-n-scratch mix of some house/disco/jackin’ favorites for a fun as hell party-style set. Quick cuts, drop-ins and rocking doubles are his specialty — hold on tight!

Matt, Part 2 > If you like your electro Detroit-style with 808’s, cowbells and deep ominous strings, go underwater for a dive with a tank full of Drexicyan and UR ionized particles, also exploring synthetic aqualife by Duplex, Electronome (I-f’s early work) and Dynarec… Slip into brand new music from Glasgow’s Iridite records and a deep Juan Atkins groove on New Religion.

Part 2: Right-click to download (78min 128k MP3 = 71mb)

Begin in a NYC roller rink: boogie basslines & funky synths, nylon yellow warm-ups and crackin’ claps. Then a detour to darker Chicago warehouse sounds with creepy Black Devil Disco Club, Maurizio and Farley… and a new (unearthed) Ross 154 track that almost reminds of Mr. Fingers. After landing us squarely in Detroit, we bridge to UK/313-style techno. Kick off Part 2 with a red-hot new 12\” from Claro Intelecto, techno icon Ken Ishii (as Flare), Stacey Pullen and Claude Young remixing Rue East keeps things tough yet funky.
