09/23/2018: Imagined Places

This edition opens the door to imaginary places: from prospective dystopias and post-truth societies, to euphoric landscapes and crystal cities. These possibilities are brought to you by new releases from Aphex Twin, The Black Dog, Yves Tumor, Helios, Skee Mask, and more. Classics from FSOL, Carl Craig, and Urban Tribe remind us all that Future Music is a timeless, undefinable state of sound. Have a listen, and enjoy!

It’s that time once again when a city springs up out of nothing and becomes populated with all manner of wild people, robots and cutting edge art. This episode is dedicated to the memory and legacy of Larry Harvey, the original instigator of Burning Man. Let this 3 hour mix transport you home with sonic stories of friends, dust, bikes and bots. Enjoy the beats and see you on the playa! Thanks for tuning in!

07/04/2018: Regimes

This month’s mix takes us to contrasting places. We’ve got soothing guitar tunes from Snail Mail, Amen Dunes, and Pax. There are hypnotic beats from Kaito, Ross From Friends, Normal Ones and Transformations, a collaboration between Fluxion and Deepchord. Check out symphonic tones from Tor, Poppy Ackroyd, and Actress. There’s much more: experimental computer generated compositions, an appearance from the Godfather of Punk, and returns from some favorite producers whom we haven’t heard from in a number of years. We hope you enjoy–thanks for your time.
