This week we fell down the chimney, and crawled between the walls with new music from Scuba, Motor City Drum Ensemble, George FItzgerald, Alva Noto, the Field, and DJ Shadow! A second hour took us through the latest sounds from Gui Boratto, Neon Indian, M83, and legendary Warp records duo Plaid! Yep. Up there with ice cream…
This week sees two new guest DJs diving deep into their respective favorite genres. First up is Textbeak with his MARBLEHEADPLATEMIX, an introduction into Darkwave and a reminder of electronic music’s shrouded past with flourishes of industrial and EBM. Shortly into the second hour longtime friend of The Beat Oracle, Mark (aka Vimmington), drags ears into the dirt with a slew of dubstep tracks. Standouts have the weirdest names: Mr. Kitty & Where’s Huey?
This week, we present the fourth edition in our annual “Slowly
” series. It is similar in theme to our 2008
mixes. It is a collage of hushed, sometimes drowsy sounds. For this reason, the duration of the show will be uninterrupted by voice. For a satisfactory listening experience we recommend finding a comfortable pair of headphones or a nice stereo, and a quiet place.
