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.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

July 20, 2018

Summer in full swing, electronics in the system, the bug in the bassbin. Triggered breakbeats and rhythm boxes in full effect. "Theme From Hot Burst" by Yage.

Warehouse Weatherall XXX

June 8, 2018

The legacy of Andrew Weatherall looms large over dance music's history. What follows is a semi-historical narrative woven around 30 of his records.

Terminal Vibration VIII (Modern Funk Beats)

May 15, 2018

FSOL – ISDN

May 7, 2018

This is the sound of the seedy underbelly of The Future Sound Of London's world, in the grimy back streets and dingy dives deep within the city.

Terminal Vibration VII (Edge Of No Control)

May 2, 2018

Material's Intonarumori is a sprawling double-album sourced in the seedy underbelly of hip hop. And it's as ugly and twisted as you could hope for.

Terminal Vibes

March 15, 2018

And so we've reached the halfway point in the Terminal Vibration saga, concluding the core eighties segment of the trip.

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).

Oak Park Strut

June 5, 2017

Pieces of the crew were down at the Blacklight Joint the other night, chillin' with Do'shonne and Slye, drafting up the blueprint for the future.

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.
