THE RESISTANCE 04 – ИСЧЕЗАЮТ ИЗ КРАСНОГО (Fade From Red)
Played on aNONradio
• 00z00 UTC Wednesday 8 July • (5pm PDT /8pm EDT Tue 7 July)
Now is the time to explore the sounds that ended the Soviet Union. Groove to the sounds of 80s Russian synth, thorough industrial and soft-iron hair metal, to 90s hip-hop and millennial post-punk alternative. Come for the glasnost, stay for the COMmunity.

The new tracks here are Client_03’s Suspect Dispenser, False Persona’s Danger Close (on the excellent Phalanx Pt. 3 comp on Typeless), Grammar Of Movement’s IOI, and Asymmetry by Zobol. All are available at the links above, so if you like what you hear then check out the full release(s).
I’ve done the Nocturne to Mala Cara mix on this show before, back in MTT004. I really like that transition. It’s a holdover from playing vinyl at the arcade, one I like to revisit every now and then. The first couple of Dirty Needles EPs are being slept on, I think. It seems to be a lot of the same crew that were on Rag & Bone. Something to think about.
I’ve got one final note this week: I noticed while collecting links for the tracklist that The Advent has made Light Years Away available on his bandcamp. That’s an exceptional album, one that’s been unavailable digitally until now (as far as I know). The Advent working in Drexciya mode, though still essentially Advent. Gamma Rays is the track off it in this mix (which I sadly talked over).
And that’s all I’ve got. Don’t know what I’ll do next time; I’ll probably continue my pattern of starting fast and getting slower throughout the month.
So, the first thing I forgot in my vocal intro was the title of Paul Birken‘s Waite Park EP, AKA HiPass Music HPS12-05, where the first track of this mix comes from. Birken has a bunch of old releases up at his bandcamp currently listed at name-your-price; if you’re looking for midwest acid, techno, and the occasional chunky beat then I recommend you head over there and flip through his catalog.
Come Alive by Nitzer Ebb doesn’t really fit here, but I wanted to hear it, so it takes a prime slot at the end of this hour. It’s the one track on the As Is EP I really like, and the pressing sounds good, 12″ at 45 RPM.
I’ll do something quick again next week, probably electro hovering around 135. I’ve got some new tunes to play, so check back if you’re interested in that.
Bronzie Beat put The Resistance on the road to where we don’t need roads, and took a trip to the 80s – Café 80s. Listen now to enjoy an hour of the smooth sounds of 80s Synth Pop – or listen every week on https://anonradio.net at UTC 00z00 Saturdays.

Three tracks I’ve been meaning to play here for years made it into this selection. First and most obvious is R9 by Cybotron (Got the eyes and ears, totalitarian truth). Second is [B]eat This by E-Control, from Global Survey Phase 2 on Dominance Electricity. I think I’ve played at least half that comp on this program at this point. Third and last is the Organik mix of Botz by Überzone, one of the two big mixes of Botz on that 12″. It’s a little odd that both R9 and Botz ended up in the same set, but I guess that’s my style.
