A weekly rundown of mixes and radio shows we’ve been enjoying…
Dispatching a mutant blend for the Inverted Audio mix series, Beau Wanzer channels “EBM, screwed-up industrial, broken hip-hop and further unidentified electronics.” Challenging perceptions surrounding home listening and conventional mix formats, this probably ain’t the one to stick on if you’re picking up the pieces from a heavy weekend.
“I recorded the mix at the Red Light Radio studio on a Sunday when they are closed. I just went in there with a tote bag filled with some of the stuff I’ve been listening to and playing out plus a few new records I’d picked up that particular weekend. 90s techno, electro, emotional synth pop, records played on the wrong speed, Italian house, new-beat and various other odds and ends. The opening track is by an old New Zealand band Headless Chickens, thanks Michael K for showing me that one.”
With mixes from Fett Burger and Rings Around Saturn under its belt, “anti-club social” For Home Use Only turns to DJ Speculator AKA Willie Burns for the twelfth instalment. Jacking house cuts to wavey bits, experimental electronics and synth-fuelled boogie, there’s a little something for everyone inside.
One-time collaborators as Itch-E & Scratch-E, Andy Rantzen and Paul Mac link up for a guest appearance on Body Motion‘s NTS show, plundering Rantzen’s back catalogue but reaching for some unreleased material alongside. Weirdo electronics for those that know.
