A weekly rundown of mixes and radio shows we’ve been enjoying…
Recently celebrating its tenth anniversary, those who missed out can enjoy several sets recorded from Dekmantel‘s iconic Greenhouse Stage, taking us from Lena Willikens and Byron The Aquarius to Jameszoo, Resom, Joey Anderson, Illum Sphere and a special live performance from legendary Neue Deutsche Welle band, Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft. That’s our listening for the week sorted then.
Virtually unparalleled in its curation, Josh Cheon’s Dark Entries is an incredible outlet of dancefloor oddities and electronic curiosities, notably taking it upon itself to reissue several gay porn soundtracks from hi-NRG pioneer, Patrick Cowley. Recently appearing on NTS, Cheon dedicated an entire show to the late Cowley, administering a blend of material lifted from those aforementioned scores.
Brighton’s Nick The Record is a vinyl aficionado in the truest sense, so understandably, our eyes lit up when we saw he had taken the reins for the latest Resident Advisor podcast, providing a 2-hour blend of material from everyone’s favourite experimental cellist, the late Arthur Russell.
A man with fingers in many pies, Sex Tags, Freakout Cult and Trushmix’s DJ Fett Burger gets on the buttons for the self-described ‘anti-club social’ mix series, For Home Use Only. Joining the dots between reggae, soul, disco and funk, word is this is the “perfect soundtrack to dancing in the kitchen.” Whack it on while you prep those patties.
“A rare outing of a UK legend caught on tape,” transmitting mind-expanding techno melodicism and cybernetic electro from the Rye Wax basement for a recent edition of Tasty Treats.
