Bound By Gravity

Mission Specialist Bruce McCandless II, is seen further away from the confines and safety of his ship than any previous astronaut has ever been. This space first was made possible by the Manned Manuevering Unit or MMU, a nitrogen jet propelled backpack. After a series of test maneuvers inside and above Challenger's payload bay, McCandless went "free-flying" to a distance of 320 feet away from the Orbiter. This stunning orbital panorama view shows McCandless out there amongst the black and blue of Earth and space. Credit: NASA

We’re excited and honored to feature a mix from SF Bay Area veteran selector Joe Rice, whose reputation as a DJ with a grasp and knowledge across genres and eras far precedes our arrival in these parts. We asked him to delve into ambient house, and he took a wide lens to it and selected across time and space, true to form. “While there are some tracks that are squarely in that vein (Larry Heard, Love Craft, The Grid), I think back to hearing sets during the “Ambient House” era by Mixmaster Morris and Alex Paterson and being struck by the breadth of styles represented. Indeed, Morris provided my first real exposure to drum & bass (in the same set as The Black Dog and beatless ambient). This reflects being inspired by that ethos as much as weaving a thread through the genre’s mix of spaciness and groove.” We think you’ll enjoy the result – and no better way to ease into summer. You’ll want to check out Joe’s SoundCloud and MixCloud.

Do You Feel Me?


Thanks for hanging with us after this very extended absence!  After a big move, Dave got his set-up back and running, went through the pile of 50+ unopened records, and laid down this session – some catch-up cuts and some new heat in a slow builder of a mix.
