Part 2: Right-click to download (73 min = 67 mb)

Part 1 > Matt’s back with a cross-genre set of funky sounds: from smoldering soul roots through boogie and deep electronic house. Abstract moods from Detroit’s Urban Tribe, 70’s disco rap from Harlem, Chicago house classic from Chip E, and chugging italo disco. Plus a stunning garage oddity unearthed and re-issued by by Chicago’s Peabody Records.

Part 2 > nyc’s pal joey as espresso brings the bleep, and severed heads bump it down a notch but keep it strange, just the way we like it. new fuzzed-up ambience from ezekiel honig & morgan packard dives into the epic ebb and dubbed-out flow of a cd-only track from berlin’s substance. The dance tempo stays put through the rest of the set, with cool touchpoints at infiniti and silent phase, closing out with vince watson’s brand new take on aroy dee.

Part 1 > dave warms up the night on the subdued side, with early fila brazilia and yunx in super-smooth form. the bass and bleeps invade with some electro attached, and a ride through 80s styles rounds out the set.

Part 2 > we’re honored to welcome chicago’s techno cornerstone, josh werner of antenna international records to the studio. josh has been the techno buyer at chicago’s legendary gramaphone records for over 14 years, in addition to having lent his hand to releases under his own name and in collaboration with dj sneak (triple fat systems/3fs), baby pop, and soultek (empathy boxx). he mixes up a set in his signature style – the newest of the new side-by-side with forgotten late 80s and 90s sounds to give you the sense that for as much time as has passed, it’s all part of one bleeped-out musical continuum.
