late night jams

staying in tonight, so let's see what we can hear...

audion - minitek 2008 livePA
matthew dear performing a live set at new york city's minitek festival in september 2008. while the rookie festival received mixed reviews at best, at least we got a few quality recordings from the experience. here matthew does a razor-sharp set as audion, nailing his noisy melodies and chopped-up, effected vocal samples to a pummeling 4/4 beat. abrasive, yet hypnotic.

dj pete - wax treatment podcast #006
dj pete, aka substance and one-half of scion, was a part of the chain reaction label/collective of dub-techno founding fathers. for this podcast series, he takes on dubstep and other bass-heavy sounds, with excellent results. podcast #006 is especially intense, with tight mixing and wave after wave of truly deep dubstep. check out the podcast page for more mixes and tracklists.

simon flower - melbourne deepcast 006
another 006, but this one's not nearly as tense... and comes courtesy of a neat mix series from australia. the aim is to allow the guest mixers space to get deep and do something interesting, and i think simon flower does that here. the new zealander has produced tracks for moon harbour and poker flat (appearing on steve bug's album collaboratory from last year); for this mix, he uses a choice collection of atmospheric yet danceable tracks. nice and hazy: i dig it... check out the melbourne deepcast blog for more information, a tracklist, and other intriguing mixes.
