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 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.

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: Bonus Round (Island Disco)

April 19, 2018

At the interzone between post-disco, new wave and boogie lies a tropical dancefloor sound embodied by no one quite so much as the Compass Point All Stars.

Jah Wobble/The Edge/Holger Czukay – Snake Charmer

February 25, 2018

Walking the same path as My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts, Snake Charmer takes post punk 80s electro boogie out for a walk in the desert.

Terminal Vibration V (What Time Is It?)

February 16, 2018

Now we move to the back of the crate toward the voodoo records: the heaviest, most atmospheric music this side of krautrock. Things are gonna get weird.

CHR-007: Parallax Pier

June 20, 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).

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).

January 5, 2015
