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.
