Part 1: Hip-hop from Shake, downtempo from Moodymann, a lost soul dusty from D.J. Rogers, and some Arthur Russell oblique disco and deep italodisco by Asso get it started. Moving into minimal 303 from K-Alexi and one of DBX’s finest bleepy house trax, freakout electodisco from Daniel Wang and an Archie Bell cover via vocoder by YMO?! New cuts round it out by Detroit’s Kenny Larkin, UK’s Kirk Degiorgio, and subwoofer decay deepness from JS-01.

Part 2: a chicago-to-berlin connection starts us off in the mid 90s, and we forge several years earlier into bleepier cuts, including the eerie first release on the dutch eevo lute imprint. new music from u.s. producer gys (think monolake) darkens the picture, followed by a sampling of artificial intelligence sounds from the likes of stasis (under his various monikers), cim, and b12 with a haunting piece as cmetric..
