12/09/2017: Illuminating the End

 

This week we present the tenth edition in our annual “Slowly” series. This installment is inspired by NGC6565, a cloud of gas that was ejected from a dying star after stellar winds pushed its outer layers into space. 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.

10/07/2017: Sanctuary of Sound

The Beat Oracle is back in action this week with a slew of new sounds! Daphni starts the set and things get crazy quickly with the dark sounds of Blanck Mass. Odesza and Bicep demonstrate the power of their new albums and why they got picked up by Ninja Tune and its sublabel Counter Records. The show wraps up with emotional and sublime melodies from newcomer Prayer and veteran Four Tet.

After an extended out-of-office message, the show returns with some tardy, yet timely beats. In an effort to look back at some great archive releases, this episode features some beloved Beat Oracle gems of yore. Freescha, Fila Brazillia, Autechre and Cylob all star within, and a few newer sounds from Karen Gwyer and Leonardo Martelli find their way into the mix. Enjoy and thanks for tuning in.
