Club Cannibal

Have You Seen The Stars Tonite Back from the red light disco and lost in the Lakeside Discothèque, where the pulse moves rhythms like packets across radio waves, Reese & Santonio records blurred in the sun-glazed mirages of dusty El Cajon heat. Flowing down the slipstream from progressive Detroit and the days when Ken Collier … Continue reading Club Cannibal

Morgan Geist – Moves

Morgan Geist Moves Environ 2002 Ever since disco's supposed death in 1980, it's consistently been one of the most vital forms of popular music. One need look no further than its various tributaries, from garage, house and techno to hip hop, electropop and RnB, for all the proof one could ask for. When the backlash … Continue reading Morgan Geist – Moves

British Invasion 25

Ah yes, the United Kingdom. The British Invasion 25 originated from a themed event put together by Sari and Kayli, where we indulged in a smorgasbord of British cuisine and shared lists of our favorite records from the ongoing British Invasion.

Veering from trip hop into soul/techno/jazz and then finally rock 'n roll, the soundtrack set the pace for the long project of bringing … Continue reading Garden Grooves 004

Soul Machines

All Is Full Of Love: At The Edge of House and R&B In the hazy shadow of r&b's ultraviolet hip hop inflections, its mirror image lingers like a haunting moment still hanging hazy in the air. Amid these discotheque dreams half-remembered, its pulse still beats a song of uptempo longing. One day Jamie passed the … Continue reading Soul Machines

Machines On Murray Hill

Machine soul by the roadside boogie and city lights beyond... Dusk falls on Murray Hill, cloudy skies bathed in moonlight and the city lights below. In this secluded enclave hemmed in by hills on all sides, geology has its way with the streets, the buildings and the power lines, all arranged carefully around its ever-changing … Continue reading Machines On Murray Hill

RAG019: Winter 2019

Radio AG Episode 019: Living In The FloodWinter 2019 The roots of this mix go back a few years, when I began mapping out an Autumn entry of Radio AG to close out the first year of seasonal episodes.

25 From 97

A couple weeks ago, Sari, Kayli and I traded lists of our favorite records from 1997 in a New Years Eve extravaganza. Why 1997, you ask? 1997 was without a doubt my favorite year in memory, and its music more than lived up to the times. If the era's clash of dancefloor futurism, breakbeat science, … Continue reading 25 From 97
