Matt uncorks a 2.5 hour extended trip through soul in different dance styles. From chill Detroit nighttime transitions to synthy boogie, house, and some abstract dub electronics. Don’t miss your medication from Talking Heads, and Deadbeat’s searing remix of Saul Williams for the closer.

    This really is the best news. Your show opened new doors for me and always inspired me creatively.

    Gonna turn the lights down low and absorb.

    Keep em coming.

    yay! for sonic sunset remixes. (especially the mattmcqueen sessions) I’m so pumped up at the moment, I regularly check – this was a big surprise! So excuse my enthusiasm ;D

    I agree with everything Aether says. Your show inspires me so much! It’s a butterflies-in-my-stomach kinda thing. Oh, you know what I mean?!

    Big Love.

    is it just me or the mix is all breaked, like a scratchy cd?


  11. 11 macqueen July 22, 2008 at 4:41 am

    Hmm, file is fine on this end. If you are streaming it right from the website, please download it instead first.

    only the first record in the mix sounds like an old scratchy record, though, because it is one.. ha


  12. 12 Henrique July 27, 2008 at 2:13 am

    I actually did download it, but let’s just try again 😉

  13. 13 innersounds July 30, 2008 at 8:57 am

    hey matt and dave–actually just swung by to see your dj bios page (i love those guys!). but it’s awesome to see you guys still putting mixes out there! i don’t know if you recall my name but i was streetbeat producer for a year while clinically inclined was around, and you guys were always my favorite show on the station (seriously!). you guys have a deep pool of knowledge that nobody else i worked with could even touch. when i was digging around in the stacks i would always take a listen to anything that had dave’s handwriting on it. i was very sad to see ci’s end, especially given that the representation of your style of music on wnur pretty much went with it. so it’s terrific to see that the two of you are still at it. i’ll try to tune in periodically, as it were.

    here’s to many more fantastic mixes, gents.

    hi there,

    thumbs up for the music….

    can someone plz help me with the “theme from sonic sunset”?

    i need the record….


    send me an email:

  22. 22 macqueen October 21, 2008 at 8:33 pm

    Hi Ben,
    yes I do remember you..
    thanks for your very kind words. I look back at the WNUR broadcast show with a hazy glow.. driving up lakeshore drive from the city to the station, night falling all around, friday buzz in the air, walking from the parking lot through that eerie little forest in mist, snow, or evening beauty, up the weird little path to the tiny studio to do our thing. for all those years, really a ritual. so your comments are really nice to hear that we made an impression on the next generation of WNUR and radio DJs. I hope you will join our mailing list and you’ll get an email whenever we push a new site live. BTW we’re overdue for a new one this fall, soon enough.. -Matt

  23. 23 macqueen October 21, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    INNERVISIONS – thanks. the track is Modaji – Seen But Not Heard. It’s from a short-lived label called Co-Operation from 2000. It was on 2×12″ and CD.. here’s more info –

    glad you dig it,

  24. 24 Martin November 13, 2008 at 9:17 am

    discovered your show and beautiful mixes just recently through a friend of mine. Just can’t believe what quality you drop! This must be the best radio show on Earth…

    Hugs & kisses from Germany,

    Just happened to be watching Bladerunner, and thought I had seen that owl image somewhere before… now I know – they stole if from the Superpeople mix.
