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

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

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

Idle Blues

Chicago skyline

Dreaming of beaches on the Lardossian coast, Dave plots a steady course, chasing the setting sun westward from the Chicago outpost before launching into orbit, keeping the D in IDM in a way that only the UK lads can. Down the home stretch, sit back in the rhythm with long exposures for some chord-driven cornerstones.

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!

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.

Part 1 > Matt MacQueen

Guest DJ Jeff Pietro, Chicago

We’re always happy to find a likeminded friend around Chicago who puts a new spin on diversity in selection, and tonight we welcome the debut WNUR set for Jeff Pietro. He’s a Chicago native whose tastes coalesce into a 2-hour journey – growing from beatless auras to heavier sounds with historical and out-of-genre gems thrown into the mix, followed by a cross-section of techno sounds from the last decade.
