Atmospheric Emotions

We are deeply & personally affected by the passing of our friend Chelsea Faith in the Oakland warehouse fire on December 2, 2016. In her memory, we’d like to share an expansive mix from April 2015, when she hosted Dave on her radio show on KALX Berkeley. We would encourage you to spend time with her radio archives where you’ll find a series of themed shows that she carefully curated. She produced beautiful original works under the moniker Cherushii, many of which are left behind in her machines.

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.

We’re super-pleased to bring you this unearthed gem of a mix from Chicago’s Zach Lubin – packed full of all-time classic jams that stand the test of time, and sequenced & overlaid to perfection from vinyl. In addition to his DJ exploits (he’s been around the world and back rocking high-octane 3-deck madness), he has releases out on Jeff Mills’ Axis sub-label 6277, the beautifully curated Kimochi Sound label, as well as a new album on Parity Records. Check out more of his excellent productions over at soundcloud.com/zachlubin.

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

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
