MTT 161 / Withdraw

Finishing out the springtime dub techno and moving into a little electro this week. My traditional end-of-the-month slow set.

Tracklist:

  1. Rings Around Saturn / World Interior 00:00
  2. Ohrwert / Neutral 03:10
  3. Iwata / Stereotype 05:55
  4. Brk / III 09:48
  5. Mark Broom / Look And Stare 14:48
  6. Paperclip People / Remake (Basic Reshape) 18:09
  7. Fingers In The Noise / Empty Whisky Bottle 22:23
  8. Chronolux / Sun Spots 27:19
  9. Am.Light / Breathing 32:11
  10. Plant43 / Amphibious Architecture 35:15
  11. Electronome / V = for Viewlexx! 39:11
  12. Lowfish / Cancel, Continue 42:00
  13. Silicon / The Wash 46:55
  14. Marco Bernardi / Complete Direction 49:52
  15. Martin Nonstatic / Sense Of Life 54:45

And here’s a link to the recording: https://archives.anonradio.net/202003270600_cev.mp3 with thanks to aNONradio for hosting the archives.

About half of this mix is a tour through free dub techno netlabels – Deepindub (track 7), Dewtone (tracks 9 and 15), Energostatic (tracks 3 and 4), Recycled Plastics (track 2), and Thinner (track 8) all feature here. My favorites of those are the two from Energostatic Records: Stereotype by Iwata and III by Brk. Dewtone and Recycled Plastics appear to be the only active labels from that list.

Track 6 Remake (Basic Reshape) by Paperclip People (AKA Carl Craig) is of course a Basic Channel remix. The copy played here is from the Basic Reshape 12″, Basic Channel catalog number BC-BR. I believe I bought my copy at Platinum Records a few years after its release. I’ve linked to Hardwax in the tracklist above, where that same release is still available both vinyl and digital.

Tracks 13 The Wash and 14 Complete Direction are both from the Dutch electro label Frustrated Funk. The Wash is of course by Heath Brunner, head of V-Max Records, and not any of the other artists named Silicon. Bernardi’s Complete Direction is from his Welcome To My World EP, and is the slow track on that otherwise fast EP.

I’m glad I picked this month for dub techno, as it’s been a tough one otherwise. I’ll be back next week with something fast again. Something weird.

MTT 160 / Involuntary Recall

More techno, dub techno, and a little house. Music to space out to while you consider your next move.

Tracklist:

  1. Audiokonstrukte / Some Miles 00:00
  2. Zzzzra / Sumo 03:29
  3. James Ulibarri / Buried In Snow 06:48
  4. Unknown / Untitled 07 [UKNWN02 03] 11:18
  5. Roberto Figus / The Natural 16:59
  6. Overcast Sound / Snow Melt 20:51
  7. Marco Bernardi / Keep On Looking 25:11
  8. Bipolardepth / Untitled [ML056 02] 29:35
  9. Simoncino / Baila Baiana 34:07
  10. Mikron / Ghost Node 36:54
  11. JGarrett / Vaporizer (Jonah Sharp Remix) 41:56
  12. Zwart Licht Kommando / Flare (Acid Mix) 46:09
  13. Sinousity / Alfanuosity 50:00
  14. Tones On Tail / You, The Night, And The Music 55:21
  15. Newworldromantic / Spirit 58:01

And here’s a link to the recording: https://archives.anonradio.net/202003200600_cev.mp3 with thanks to aNONradio for hosting the archives.

Two more tracks from Motorlab feature this week: Sinuosity’s Alfanuosity and Bipolardepth’s Untitled from ML056 Soundtest. Soundtest is particularly good and cohesive, with Bipolardepth’s track being in my opinion the best on the release.

Mikron’s Ghost Node, from their album Severance on CPU Records, is my current favorite from this list. Ghost Node has a peculiar moody disco vibe, something I associate with old Legowelt or Orgue Electronique, old Bunker, Clone, or Crème. Severance is easily my favorite album of 2019, so go check it out (please).

All these tracks are good of course (I mean, I like ’em), even if the selection doesn’t quite hang together right. It was a fun and welcome distraction on a troubling Thursday evening.

I’ll be live again on the 26th with something slower; blog post to follow as usual.

MTT 159 / Brain Dive

Techno, dub techno, and a little 2000s minimal for a rainy week.

Tracklist:

  1. Sinuosity / Untitled [Cycle23 B] 00:00
  2. Maurizio / Domina (Maurizio Mix) 02:50
  3. Das Kraftfuttermischwerk / Flieg Mit Mir, Flieg 08:56

  15. Model 500 / Starlight (M 69 Original Mix) 55:15
  16. Auto Kinetic / Motorcity 56:50

And here’s the recording: https://archives.anonradio.net/202003130600_cev.mp3 with thanks to aNONradio for hosting the archives.

Tracks 3, 9, and 10 are all from the famous netlabel Thinner. Pheek & Benfay’s Leaving Bern is my favorite of those three. Pheek‘s two releases on Thinner, Tabisuru Kokoro (thn043) and Consortium (thn076), are worth checking out if you’re into the style exemplified by Leaving Bern. Both are available at files.scene.org. Thinner’s catalog is also available at archive.org, if that’s more convenient.

The reason I assembled this mix, the track I really wanted to play, is the classic Domina by Maurizio. The particular copy featured here is from the the Tresor 3 compilation. It’s probably my favorite of the M-Series (though M-4 is also very good). Hardwax has M-3 Domina available as both 12″ and a digital download if you don’t already have it.

And that’s it. I think I’ll do some more dub techno four-on-the-floor stuff next week, but slower. Check back for that if you’re into it.

MTT 158 / To All Patrolling Air Units

Selections from the Megatech Body CD (AKA the Ghost In The Shell PSX soundtrack) and the two Ghost In The Shell Tribute albums from 2004. Fast techno, 130 to 140 BPM.

Tracklist:

  1. Oliver Ho / The Vision 00:00
  2. System 7 vs. Derrick May / Big Sky City 02:24
  3. Dave Angel / Can U Dig It? 07:36
  4. Sam Reeve / Tachikoma Beat Showcase 11:09
  5. Hardfloor / Spook & Spell (Fast Version) 14:36
  6. Brother From Another Planet / Ishikawa Surfs The System 18:32
  7. Joey Beltram / The Vertical 21:58
  8. WestBam / Moonriver 26:59
  9. Bryan Zentz / Interfaced 29:50
  10. Kabuto / No Brain 34:04
  11. Scan X / Higher [Listed on the packaging as “Reflections”] 37:46
  12. Mijk Van Dijk / Soul Survivor 41:58
  13. Shin Nishimura / Disorder 45:40
  14. Q-Hey / Man Machine 48:24
  15. Takkyu Ishino / Ghost In The Shell 51:01
  16. Brother From Another Planet / Section 9 Theme 56:41

and here’s the recording: https://archives.anonradio.net/202003060600_cev.mp3 with thanks to aNONradio for hosting the archives.

This mix is entirely comprised of tracks from three compilations. First: the 1997 Megatech Body.CD, the 2 disc limited edition, better known as the soundtrack to the Ghost In The Shell playstation video game. Second: the 2004 Ghost In The Shell Tribute Album. Third: the Ghost In The Shell Tribute Album Ver 2.0.0, also from 2004.

Wikipedia tells me that Takkyu Ishino produced the soundtrack album, and it’s a terrific sampling of Detroit, European, and Japanese techno. The selection on the two tribute albums is similar, but updated for 2004. Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig was airing on TV roughly when the two tribute albums were released, so they may have been tie-in or promotional products.

So, these three albums are amazing. From the artists assembled, to the particular tracks, to the packaging and art direction. Way more hits than misses. A lot of great tracks didn’t make it into this hour: CJ Bolland’s tunes (as BCJ), The Advent’s tunes, Adam Beyer… I tried hard to get Mijk Van Dijk’s Fuchi Koma in, but couldn’t find a spot for it. Maybe next time.

I bought these discs on eBay in ’05 or ’06 and unfortunately mine are bootlegs. Specifically the Ever Anime bootleg of the Megatech Body CD, and the Miya Records bootlegs of the first and second Tribute albums. I’ve wanted to record a mix of these tracks since then, and am happy to have done it now.

Oh, and feel free to fast forward past my airheaded rambling at the beginning of the recording.

Tracklist:

  1. The Black Dog / Terminal EMA 00:00
  2. Bjorn Rohde / Forest Of Forgotten Hearts 03:00
  3. Zzzzra / Invendable 06:34
  4. Seal Bient / Untitled [ML051 01] 12:28

  14. Pineapple Corner / Easy Fly 53:41
  15. User48736353001 / 14 Floating∞ 57:18

and here’s the recording: https://archives.anonradio.net/202002280600_cev.mp3 with thanks to aNONradio for hosting the archives.

The new tracks here are Border by Galcid from their EP Galcid’s Ambient Works, and The Last Minute On Earth by Exhausted Modern from the False Endings EP on Brokntoys. Galcid’s Ambient Works is particularly good. All four tracks on it are strong; #2 Mirror is my favorite.

Both pieces by Seal Bient are from the Russian techno label Motorlab. I’ve written about Motorlab here before, but it’s worth recommending their releases again if you’re into dub techno and/or spare detroit-ish techno. They have a couple interesting sublabels, too: Cyclon and Runout, for tracky techno and ambient releases respectively.

And that’s the end of MTT Year 3. Thank you everyone out there listening; I hope you’ve enjoyed, and found some new music. I have something special planned for next week’s show, the first of year four: fast (130-140) techno, with an unusual theme. Should be a good time.
