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

Vacuum Boogie

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

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.

Ghosts

Part 1: Right-click to download (74 min = 86 mb)
Part 2: Right-click to download (76 min = 88 mb)

Part 1 > Music for a hot summer night alone, gloomy soundtracks take a trip. A heartbreak dusty from One Way, icy synthesizers from Joy Division, inner city blues from Curtis Mayfield and deep cuts from Detroit’s Jeff Mills and Urban Tribe. This one isn’t exactly a ‘pick me up’ — but sometimes you just gotta get it all out.

Part 2 > Electronic boogie, simmering house, and dubbed-out techno are carefully tossed into the blender over ice for a midsummer’s treat. New psychedelic oscillations from Newworldaquarium, top-shelf filtered goodness from Substance & Vainqueur, beats broken and voices echoed by Burial, while Sven Weisemann and Oracy keep things smooth and simple.
