Steely Dan

November 29, 2018

A selection of random access memories of those beatnik denizens residing comfortably at the interface of rock and jazz in singular fashion.

Motion 001

August 23, 2018

Seeing as we've moved into the dog days of summer, the moment seems right to bring back the Motion series. This selection happens to include some of my all-time favorite techno music.

Terminal Vibration IX (Elevator Music)

June 29, 2018

This music is like Detroit — a complete mistake. It's like George Clinton and Kraftwerk stuck in an elevator. The subject turns to techno, house and other things...

Terminal Vibration VIII (Modern Funk Beats)

May 15, 2018

The elegant beat matrix of electro is to rave what the blues were to rock 'n roll. In other words... it all started with Kraftwerk.

Garden Grooves 002

June 14, 2017

This is summertime music, pure and simple, post-disco music with gulf stream tendencies (linking New York to the Caribbean and the Black Ark to the Paradise Garage).

Day-Glo Dreams

December 16, 2016

There exists a particular sound that seems to leap out the speakers in vivid colors, engulfing its surroundings and drawing you into its world.

February 2, 2016

I recently noticed that I'd loaned out my copy of Derrick May's Innovator and thought, "what a great compilation that was," followed by "I really hope that I get it back."

Terranova – DJ-Kicks

February 9, 2015

The spectre of post punk abstraction hangs heavy over everything here, gesturing back toward an era when Mark Stewart hooked up with Tackhead.

The Parallax 100

January 5, 2015

This list represents my absolute favorite 100 records of all-time.
