Live at Plunge 2010

Hi and thanks to everyone who’s been listening, keeping us in mind, and spreading the word!  Last year at around this time, we were honored to be asked to play an extended tag-team set at a special outdoor event called Plunge. We owe the event organizers and its music coordinators a huge thanks for the opportunity to stretch out musically for 3 hours — just like we did every Friday night on our FM radio show — as the sun went down over a gorgeous northern California setting.  Thankfully, the set was recorded, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed presenting it.  — Matt & David

Cool As Ice

Some 80s goodness from both the pop and underground sides of the spectrum work the floor in this timeline rollercoaster of a mix – with beached-out melodies and jack-track jams along the way. Enjoy! -David

Body Sonic

A number of nods to Detroit get the spotlight in this post-festival session that starts uptempo and enters a second movement a little more softly and slowly. On the newer front, check the smoothed-out “dubstep” from Jack Sparrow and the late-80s house revamp from Storm Queen – and going back in time, one of the all-time disco greats from Black Ivory. Enjoy! -David

Dwelling On The Dunes

This slow builder comes in with some quirky 80s dance tracks and spaced-out disco (including one of the best Italo tracks we’ve ever heard), moving into Chicago’s mid-90s deep house sound before the dub techno rinse-out. Check out the new shimmering Newworldaquarium remix and two killer tracks on the Laid label from Lawrence and Kassem Mosse. This one’s extra long to give those tracks some breathing room. -David

Rocket Deep

This was going to be part 2 of the last mix, but the last mix ended up pretty long on its own.  This one’s a little faster in tempo, throwing back some industrial and some mid-90s sci-fi cuts I’ve been wanting to play.  Check the new Chicago sounds from Steve Tang and UNLTD / Israel Vines (all of whom we’ve been lucky to have on Sonic Sunset in the past), plus killer broken-up sounds from Shed and Andrea.  -David

a glowing orb

Sometimes time slips away without permission – I started this mix in April.  The end product is a midtempo glide into house tempo, the kind of set that can go on changing for hours without breaking the flow.  Check the new ethereal sounds from the resurrected Balance label and Russia’s Anton Zap.  -David
