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...

Kevin Saunderson

May 29, 2018

Techno as only the Master Reese could do it. Holding court last weekend at Movement, it's clear that he's gonna keep right on doing it for years to come.

April 11, 2017

I recall wandering the vast corridors on an indoor mall only to find a record shop nestled in one of its murky corners.

High Desert Neon

December 15, 2016

Back to cruising into the wilderness, through Ramona where Chicago beatboxes hold sway and the sound of TR-707's chugging alongside Main St.

Deep Space 100

August 3, 2016

Each of these records is a chapter in the story of music's dalliance with the cosmos, tracing a fascination with the stars through the 20th and beyond.

February 25, 2016

A few years back, I started a limited series in which I'd post a weekly tune that was locked into the celestial. I called it Deep Space Music.

A Little Spaced Out

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."

The Parallax 100

January 5, 2015

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