Part 1 > Italo disco and leftfield weirdness from the early/mid 80’s, when Chicago hotmix radio DJs threw in amped-up electronic eurodance with latin freestyle and crude house beats — to rock the city from Rogers Park to Stoney Island. Mixed w/ more recent cuts from NYC’s Abe Duque and Toronto’s Dubious, closes with WBMX destroyer from Pineapples.

Part 2 > trying to treat the summer heat with a musical iced beverage, we get drenched in atmospheric downtempo and dub-house before we reach cool-down sounds from russ gabriel, new flowing techno from chicago’s zachary lubin, mike huckaby remixing on a deeper plane, and convextion setting off the fireworks.

Kraftwerk Special Feature

Part 2: Right-click to download (79 min = 72 mb)

Broadcast on the eve of the Kraftwerk tour stop in Chicago, Matt hosts a full career retrospective of their work. Agruably the most forward-thinking and influential pioneers in synthesized electro-pop music, the four composers working from Dusseldorf, Germany have had their music famously described as \”so stiff it’s funky.\” Kraftwerk created sonic blueprints and themes that paved the way for early Hip-Hop, House and Techno to follow in their robotic footsteps. After an intro of Detroit-y downtempo sounds, hear Kraftwerk’s decades of influence still every bit as relevant to modern electronic music today, fusing mechanized beats with emotional melodies and beautifully simple pop arrangements.
