08/20/2016: Summer Rain Syndrome

Summer’s almost over and in the Midwestern U.S. the skies can’t stop crying. This week’s selections reflect those cloudy sentiments with new music from Synkro, Virginia and Different Sleep. There’s also some sunshine peaking through courtesy of DJ Tennis, Bwana and Gelka. Waterproof those headphones and go outside – this downpour is for dancing!

Center your consciousness around this cluster of cyborganic sounds from ’16. Nuage starts things off by recalling the future’s past. There’s new Avalanches and Kettel! The Magician returns to cast a new spell on the dance floor, Marek Hemmann drapes techno in purple, and Dusky gets another perfect remix (this time by Bwana). All this and more in this week’s sound collage!

07/09/2016: Tropicalactic

In this hour, the Oracle opens up a limited-time-only space portal to the Galaxy of Infinite Summer. The journey begins with a surprising downtempo number from Komon. New tunes from Fakear, Niki & the Dove and The Natural History Museum assure your arrival on a truly beaching planet! There’s also a long lost treasure from 1980 in the form of New Musik’s “On Islands” – a song that never made it to U.S. shores back when it was released. There’s more fresh future finds to discover in this trip. Enjoy!

06/25/2016: Solstice

This set is all about summer. It’s inspired by waves, sun, shade, and crisp evenings. The hour is dominated by exceptional 2016 releases from Yumi Zouma, Maria Usbeck, Nite Jewel, Bibio, and more. Older standouts from The Radio Dept, The Embassy, and The Sea and Cake are included for good measure. It’s an infectious, pop-leaning edition that we hope you enjoy. Thanks for listening!
