Covert Action

Part 1: Boot up to mutant electro boogie and computerfunk, pop the strobe lights. Left-field synth freakouts from David Astri and Cori Josais meet Italo disco from Gary Low, Phrenic and Cellophane — are friends electric? Freeze.

Part 2: crisp rhythms from argentina’s zensible label collide with herbert’s deep dark world, and drop off into an oscillating ocean glittering in the moonlight, courtesy of heiko laux. the texture gets a level or two darker with beautifully subdued downtempo from pub, and comes back to the light with densely melodic dancefloor moves from holland’s duplex.

Life On Mars

Part 1: Deeper crate diggin this week, back to some proper soul and spaced out jazz-funk, tracing it’s way to early-era house. New, forthcoming music on Unclassics: a beautifully sublime dub mix by Morgan Geist of an old discovery by Victor, he distills italo down to its irrestible beats and melodies that recall the deep, warm grooves of classic Chicago house.

Part 2: a slow, lush wash from chicago’s damon lamar (baby pop) fades into more dsp-ed action from adam johnson, then into downbeat electronics, including classic sci-fi autechre. then we go midtempo with new chugging bass-heavy waves from arctic hospital, and some old school chicago business in the mix, ending with some faster-moving dark melodics from the uk, detroit, and nyc.

Part 1: Opens with emotive downtempo — from dark brooding strings to sparkling Detroit melodies from Carl Craig, past and future soul sounds. Winds up through electro to a classic from legendary B12, and brand new UK/Amsterdam handshake with New World Aquarium remixing Kirk Degiorgio.

Part 2: smoothed-out techno from vince watson and ali subsides into robotic synthesizer pop-locks from newcleus and kraftwerk, subtle mysticism from severed heads and the boards of canada, and nighttime driving tones from exos.
