10/22/2009: Another live set…

Last week the Beat Oracle DJs made selections from mixing live at Hal & Al’s in September. Michael starts things with a house selection that had people dancing on tables and in front of the speakers. Kenny keeps it upbeat with a late-night selection from guest DJ Knackered’s electro hour. Knackered showed up late one night sporting a neon mask and tracks from DMX Krew, Swayzak, Terminal 11 and Galaxian. Joseph finishes the show with a late-night closing set full of old school classic hip-hop: Gang Starr, Pete Rock, Tribe, EPMD, De La Soul, and 2Pac’s first 12″ appearance. Lots of classics in this week’s sets showing our love for nostalgia as the summer ends…

10/15/2009: Changing Colors

Grey days have arrived, and a large amount of tea has cleared up the Oracle’s nagging cold. A variety of future music kept the studio warm while recuperating. Hour-one includes some experimental and vibrant new sounds from Washed Out, City Center, Boards of Canada, Circlesquare, and El Guincho. The second half of the show offers some dance lessons from Filippo Moscatello, and Few Nolder. A spectrum of hip-hop tracks from Speech Debelle, Raekwon, and Mike Slott finishes things off. Thanks for listening!

10/08/2009: Second Pressings and Guessings

Here is the most recent edition of the Oracle program. The pattern of sound fluctuates between various levels of “bump bump” and “beep beep.” It was raining outside and the dogs were barking. It’s unknown what specific effect, if any, these elements had on the recording, or whether we were in fact, fit for operating electronic devices. Newly released evidence will prove that the brilliance of Neil Landstrumm, Shed, Kode 9, Skanfrom, Ellen Allien, Massive Attack and Broadcast, were able to splendidly fill in this Limbaugh-sized gap in wit.

Stay tuned for big news.

10/1/2009: Black Rock Evolution

Black Rock

This week Solar Flare dedicates a flaming solo set to friends made and fun experienced at Burning Man this year. I was long overdue for a trip to Black Rock City and I only realized it once I reached the playa. For one magic week I was immersed in a place I had only glimpsed in dreams and visions years ago. There was stunning art all over, friendly people playing and connecting on deep levels, and amazing sounds. Being a creature of music I will let my selections tell the story of my first Burn. The synchronicities, bike rides, alien landing and all-night raving you’ll have to ask me about next year, if you’ll join me there. (I don’t want to miss this neon-lit planetary/cosmic event ever again!) For now, pull on your goggles and dust mask-here comes a whiteout.
