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.

Save The Night

spaceconvertible_400x250

We’re extremely privileged to have a guest mix from SF’s Jason Douglas! JD is a relentless digger (and finder) of amazing jams of all eras. His DJ trajectory – starting in 1992 – from Dallas to SF has seen him in the business of used vinyl online (vinyldj.com), production (highly sought-after deep house 12″s from The Attendants), and curation (with Matt Holland) of the monthly Deep Crates club night celebrating the various corners of dance music history, and SF’s powerful vinyl selectors. We are exceptionally thankful for this mix, as not only is it packed full of the deepest Italo, it’s likely his last before relocating to Portland! Check him out at https://soundcloud.com/jasondouglas.

Do What U Gotta Do

This mix was originally recorded for our dear friend Menyui’s birthday, and she was kind enough to allow us to share it with all of you! The track that really gets to the heart of this mix is Soho’s “Give It Up”, a perfect slice of New York. -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

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

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
