Mind Machine

This is one of the first sets I’ve done in a good while that ended up techno from start to finish. The faster start is a mish-mash of sub-genres, but it flows with a sense of dub as the undercurrent. A mind-melting Demdike Stare track winds down the first part, setting a middle-range tempo for the second part, which eventually fires up a dark dancefloor. -David

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

Live at Plunge 2010 (via SoundCloud) (182 min)

No tracklist for this all-vinyl set, but if you have specific questions we’ll do our best to help!

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

Distant Lights

calder-montreal

Dave starts the night with a sunset of hazy feedback, a cluster of scintillating Chain Reaction chords, and then onward into the starry skyway.  This set was recorded live at Chicago’s Empty Bottle in May of 2007, opening for Berlin’s Monolake, and was performed using Ableton‘s Live software.

B12 Records Special – Soundtrack of Space

Part 1: Right-click to download (74 min = 86 mb)
Part 2: Right-click to download (78 min = 90 mb)

First an announcement: Due to big changes in our geography and lives, Sonic Sunset is no longer being broadcast live on 89.3 FM Chicago radio. We’d like to thank WNUR for giving us airtime every Friday night for damn near 10 years! This is a bittersweet but ultimately positive evolution for us. We’ll release a few of our last remaining on-air shows, and then continue to record mixes (less frequently) that we’ll put up on SonicSunset.com. We discuss this live at the end of Part 1. Thanks to all of our global listeners who download, you’ve encouraged us to continue even without a local radio broadcast. Now, on with the music, 2 very special shows we think you’ll find worth the wait:

Part 1 > Explore the depths of Berlin’s Rhythm & Sound extended family of labels, focusing especially on their “Main Street” imprint – for deep house and dark, eerie detached layers of dub traces. Playing the more downtempo shades of Basic Channel sound, hear the best expression of dub and modern techno today. Fifteen years after they first pioneered it, their unique sound has proven timeless.

Part 2 > A retrospective set of London’s B12 Records. We’ve been wanting to do this show for many years, and decided no better time in space than now: “Expressions of the Future” as viewed in 1991 from B12 in London, through a lens that built on Detroit’s original foundation, but angled the sound into a unique British unknown. Michael Golding & Steve Rutter crafted this vision under numerous artist names on their B12 imprint, releasing one of the pillars of the Artificial Intelligence era, Electro Soma (primarily a collection of their early 12″s), on Warp Records. We love the 12″ philosophy they adopted, with super-limited colored vinyl among an already-limited total pressing. The records have gorgeous cutting jobs with massive etchings before and after the grooves, not unlike the look of UR/Red Planet records from that same era. B12 was a key first step for UK’s clinical twist on soulful circuitry, we dug deep to play many of their originals we had.

We’re always happy to find a likeminded friend around Chicago who puts a new spin on diversity in selection, and tonight we welcome the debut WNUR set for Jeff Pietro. He’s a Chicago native whose tastes coalesce into a 2-hour journey – growing from beatless auras to heavier sounds with historical and out-of-genre gems thrown into the mix, followed by a cross-section of techno sounds from the last decade.
