Pausing the motion

•July 22, 2010 • Leave a Comment

I’ve come across a rather sudden change in schedule and find myself unable to fill my show’s time slot.  So, for the time being, I am going to have to cancel the 1pm Wednesday show.  I want to continue broadcasting my shows to you all, so I am working out a new time slot with the station.  Hopefully in the next week or so I will be able to slide in to an opening and get back to the music.

Meanwhile, catch up on some previous shows by checking out my archived podcasts to the right of the site.  If you peep some of my earliest shows, you can play them directly off the site via my Soundcloud links (for example this one, or maybe this one).  Newer shows are all podcasted to the right however.

I wasn’t exactly sure where I wanted to go with things today, especially since I wasn’t even sure I was going to be able to do the show.  So, when the dust settled and my schedule was free, I decided to start off with some kinda mellower dance tracks and then calling out to some of the more classic dance tracks of the 90’s.  I was enjoying this vibe so much that I stuck with it and threw in a lot of classic electronic tunes, keeping the vibe upbeat and house-y.  The second track (“Qiyamah” by d’Eon) is what really set the mood for this set (and yes, its actually a new track though it sounds quite retro).

The insane heat in NYC today brought out this set.  Its got some very summer-y tunes in it, as well as some classic summer throwback jams that hopefully my discerning listeners will appreciate.  The set starts off rather dancey, but after the first few songs that gives way to a different feel.  I shall keep it short today as my nuts wanna stick to the leather chair…

The tempo stayed up most of the time, resulting in a more dance-oriented show than I’ve done in a while.  Some old fave’s and new ones thrown in the mix, plus some interesting mellow pieces to break up the pace.

I’m getting the record shopping bug again, but I think I may do mostly online stuff this time.  Both Ghostly and Planet Mu have decent websites for buying online, so I’ve been waiting for a few things from both of them.  Halcyon in Brooklyn keeps having killer releases, but I know if I go there I’m likely to drop more cash than I should.  I just love that shop so much, and everyone there is so knowledgeable that they find some other stuff for you that you didn’t know about but are certainly glad they brought to your attention.

This Fourth is looking to be kinda boring, so I may just go off to the shops and listen to records for hours on end…

Here’s the playlist, by the way, for today’s show.  Peep it and listen again via my podcasts in the top right of the blog.

Skirted the dub-step and deeper drum ‘n bass notes for a while and touched on a classic or two.  Moving on, things went more dub-stepp-y, then left-field-ish and ambient; closing out with an interesting track by Tinashe (London by way of Zimbabwe, remixed).

Fun stuff.

This has been a great year for music so far.  Lots of amazing electronic stuff coming out and on the way.  Some interesting pseudo-rock-electronic-pop stuff too (meaning over-programmed rock?…something along those lines) (see Phantogram, New Look, and/or Monarchy for example).  I’m a happy camper with lots of good tunes to listen to.  Looking forward to that Gold Panda vinyl to get pressed up too Ghostly…

Dope show today.  Started off with some abstrakkkkkt hip hop and merging into some dub-steppy goodness and veering off into more dubby woods.  Things just flowed real nice and I feel the mixes were good.  Even did a little scritchy-scratchy in there just for kicks.  I like manipulating the sounds, but I’ll never have Kid Koala’s dexterity, hehe.

The last few days have just been really good.  Things are positive and I think that translates to how you approach just about everything.  Even my dumps feel better lately.
