06/15/2019: A Monument

This week’s episode is a reflection on walking. In particular, walking through hot days and cool nights with special ones nearby. The show starts with new music from Yagya and quickly moves into a collage of rock and hip-hop including new tunes from Flying Lotus (featuring Little Dragon), Com Truise, JETS, and Big Thief. The second half of the mix highlights electronic and ambient music including new releases from Plaid, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Robag Wruhme, Prins Thomas and a special remix by Burial.

05/18/2019: Transit Lines

This week’s edition is near and dear to the heart as a majority of tracks derive from two all-time favorite labels: City Centre Offices and Morr Music. The pinnacle of these labels came in the early 2000s, and left an indelible influence on The Beat Oracle and (more importantly) electronic music as a whole. In addition, this episode features five-related projects from Danish trio Future 3, as well as a slew of new releases from the likes of Lena Raine, Com Truise, Tim Hecker, Fennesz, Yagya, and more. The episode was conceived of as an ideal soundtrack for transit of some kind, but works just as well at home, melted into a sofa. Please enjoy and thanks for listening and supporting algorithm-free music curation.

This week’s sonic trip starts with some jazz-infused hip-hop from Cyne and Nujabes and dissolves into some new psychedelic beats from Khruangbin, MorMor, and Bibio. There are also some top new releases featured from Plant 43, 96 Back, Peggy Gou, Kedr Livanskiy, and many more mind-spinning tracks within. Maybe you’ll find a moment or two that makes you pause and want to know more, hear more, or chill more. Enjoy!

03/10/2019: Time Loss

This edition takes some twists and turns across the Future-Music spectrum, incorporating a balance of past and present. There are new featured releases from Chromatics, Pye Corner Audio, Efdemin, Weval, King Midas Sound, the Sleaford Mods, and more. Classics from Autechre, Dip In The Pool, and Ulrich Schnauss continue to age with the refinement of a classic scotch/wine/Isabelle Huppert. Loads of other top tracks are peppered within – so please enjoy…responsibly, and perhaps with a fine scotch/wine/Isabelle Huppert. Thanks for listening!
