Cool As Ice

Some 80s goodness from both the pop and underground sides of the spectrum work the floor in this timeline rollercoaster of a mix – with beached-out melodies and jack-track jams along the way. Enjoy! -David

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.

First an announcement: Due to big changes in our geography and lives, Sonic Sunset is no longer being broadcast live on 89.3 FM Chicago radio. We’d like to thank WNUR for giving us airtime every Friday night for damn near 10 years! This is a bittersweet but ultimately positive evolution for us. We’ll release a few of our last remaining on-air shows, and then continue to record mixes (less frequently) that we’ll put up on We discuss this live at the end of Part 1. Thanks to all of our global listeners who download, you’ve encouraged us to continue even without a local radio broadcast. Now, on with the music, 2 very special shows we think you’ll find worth the wait:

Part 1 > Explore the depths of Berlin’s Rhythm & Sound extended family of labels, focusing especially on their “Main Street” imprint – for deep house and dark, eerie detached layers of dub traces. Playing the more downtempo shades of Basic Channel sound, hear the best expression of dub and modern techno today. Fifteen years after they first pioneered it, their unique sound has proven timeless.

Part 2 > A retrospective set of London’s B12 Records. We’ve been wanting to do this show for many years, and decided no better time in space than now: “Expressions of the Future” as viewed in 1991 from B12 in London, through a lens that built on Detroit’s original foundation, but angled the sound into a unique British unknown. Michael Golding & Steve Rutter crafted this vision under numerous artist names on their B12 imprint, releasing one of the pillars of the Artificial Intelligence era, Electro Soma (primarily a collection of their early 12″s), on Warp Records. We love the 12″ philosophy they adopted, with super-limited colored vinyl among an already-limited total pressing. The records have gorgeous cutting jobs with massive etchings before and after the grooves, not unlike the look of UR/Red Planet records from that same era. B12 was a key first step for UK’s clinical twist on soulful circuitry, we dug deep to play many of their originals we had.
