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

Belle Isle Daze

Belle Isle Daze

Hi so it’s been far too long, I hope this helps make up for an extended absence.  A sprawling mix of soul, deep space techno, house and abstract funk. From Detroit to Chicago, UK to NYC and beyond the clouds, won’t you come visit trip city?  -Matt

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!

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.

Near Dark

Part 1: Right-click to download (73 min = 84 mb)
Part 2: Right-click to download (83 min = 95 mb)

Part 1 > A mood flows from disco to dub via deep house and detroit techno, the soundtrack to a suspended nightfall. Drive thru a babylon takeover on the slow but mighty deep.

Part 2 > Dave runs a static-saturated descent from what Basic Channel hath wrought into a synth-soaked thread that unravels quickly into several Detroit-infused filaments. From there, a slow, smooth burn evolves that has its place both in starlit streets and sunlit windows.

Lay It On Me

Part 1: Right-click to download (83 min = 92 mb)
Part 2: Right-click to download (68 min = 78 mb)

Part 1> Alternate soundtrack to a 1983 film about a spaceman stranded in Harlem, expressed with soul, electronic funk & boogie, and winds up with a few beautifully synthesized italo disco anthems from the same era.

Part 2> A melding of 80s styles with current Chicago/Detroit-influenced goodness floats away into lush ambience and two cello-based moods, followed by a late-summer house wind-down into dubbed-out sounds and 90s hypnotic minimalism. Notable new slabs from Pan Sonic, Sven Weisemann, and a hot re-issue of extra-rare old-school Chicago deepness from Joe Lewis.
