Best New Music: Vril – Torus XXXII

Vril, the mysterious Giegling producer known for his dubby techno dancefloor bombs, has just released his debut LP, Torus. Needless to say, it’s phenomenal, demonstrating Vril’s expertise at creating soundscapes. Torus XXXII shows a more melodic approach – on repeat.

Mix of the Week: Eric Cloutier – Driftwood Records Mix

A beautifully deep and dubby mix.

Track of the Week: Vester Koza – Maslo 03 A

Here’s some sick dub techno for a slow Monday. If you’re digging this, check out his Boiler Room set.

Mix of the Week: RA.387 Traumprinz

It seems the mysterious Prince of Denmark is on fire lately! After listening to his Smoke Machine podcast (featured below) non-stop this entire week, I’ve got a new one to keep me busy. Traumprinz is an alias of Prince of Denmark, and this RA podcast features largely unreleased material of his. This guy is a master building ambiance, and seems to be quite the interesting character. His idea behind the mix, via RA:

I like the idea of sehnsuchtsorte, a desirable place that only exists in our fantasy. It’s a way to keep away the sometimes unpleasant side of reality and to empower creativity, emotion, irrational behaviour and imperfection—features that sometimes get little bit mistreated in these times that we live in, I think.

Listen and download here. A mix not to be missed.

Mix of the Week: Vril – Smoke Machine Podcast 089

Vril is the latest artist to contribute to Smoke Machine’s podcast series. Over an hour of dub techno perfection. Good stuff.

Parts 1 and 2 of My Final Radio Show!

Over the last two years, it’s been a huge pleasure being able to play all of my favorite tunes over the radio. It’s only now, sitting here  back at home in LA while browsing my library and grabbing some awesome new tunes that I realize just how much I’m going to miss going on air every week. But at least I’ll still have the blog. For those of you who listened, thank you! As I said all too much on air, I hope you enjoyed.

For my last show, I wanted something special. The Friday before the show, I gathered a few of my favorite friends to see both Maceo Plex and Maya Jane Coles for our last “big night out.” It was the perfect way to end our college journey: at an outdoor downtown location with views over the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges. After the party, we walked back home through New York’s financial district, completely deserted at 3AM, walking through the city liked we owned it. I wanted my last radio show to be a continuation of that night.

Kai did what he does best (besides hugging), playing deep and uplifting house that would pull even the deepest sleepers out of hibernation and into the summer air. For myself, I wanted to keep it simple: play my favorites old and new. Thank you Kai. Thanks for listening. Thank you friends. And thanks for making these past years unforgettable.
