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

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

Emotions Unknown

Dave takes us for a guided tour through dusky soft shadows and nighttime machines, leading into more relaxed territory before revisiting those chunky Chicago roots. New dubstep/techno genre-crossing sounds blended with their forerunners round out the meander. Too many great new cuts to mention all of them, but Stereociti lays down a thick, clean groove with Drexciyan flourishes, Joy Orbison offers you a rainbow-colored glowstick, and DJ Sprinkles goes beyond deep.

Grey Sky Cracks

berlin

With the controls of the Sonic Sunset space-time cruiser set on “random”, Dave pilots through retro-future analog visions, emerging out onto As One’s lush, blue-skied terrain.  Our cruising velocity throttles only slightly, guiding the ship into Plant43’s landing electro-bass, followed by a moody take-off that smoothly banks left into the evening stars.  Cool strings from Strictly Rhythm circa 1991, Aroy Dee’s abstract jack coolness with Peel Seamus, and advanced hybrid sounds from Martyn anchor the journey!

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.

Superpeople

Matt uncorks a 2.5 hour extended trip through soul in different dance styles. From chill Detroit nighttime transitions to synthy boogie, house, and some abstract dub electronics. Don’t miss your medication from Talking Heads, and Deadbeat’s searing remix of Saul Williams for the closer.
