Mix: Tales Of The Interstitial episode XII:
live on PsyMusic 20th Jul 2010

21 July 2010

This month started with a quick tour of midtempo, gentle into glitch-crunk, then switched into psybreaks, but most of the show was given over to the stack of great journeying chunky progressive I’d just bought… with a bit of minimal / tech-house to wind down. Big shouts to all the chatroom crew 🙂

Mix: From The Depths

5 November 2009

Here’s a deep techno and tech-house mix I did over a year ago and never quite got round to uploading due to the usual uncertainty about whether I’d got the flow of the journey quite right. But I’ve had a lot of positive feedback about it so here you go…

Mix: Tales Of The Interstitial episode II:
live on PsyMusic 1st Sep 2009

2 September 2009

Take a deep breath in, and…..

psychill – wonky/glitchy midtempo breakbeat – hypnotic techfunk – claustrophobic darkfloor electro – minimal techno/tech-house (spooky/spacey – light/quirky – rolling/bassy – acid/bleepy) – tech-trance – electroglitch – skankin glitch-funk – heavy’n’dope – psylekdubstep – psylekdnb – psybreaks – psytechfunk – progressive psytrance – building and bouncy psytrance – trancey progressive hardhouse classics

It took longer to come up with the above description of last night’s musical journey than it did to transcribe the whole tracklist. I think I did it solely to demonstrate (to myself as much as anyone else) the futility of trying to try to nail down the genres I play, particularly in Tales Of The Interstitial whose stated purpose is to showcase the stuff that doesn’t neatly fit into named boxes. Half the above I patently made-up and won’t mean anything anyway, although if you’re bored you might like to play match-the-genre-description-to-the-tracks, and then I think you’ll find I’ve taken this pointless task very seriously. For all our sakes, I shall not bother doing so again. Instead, I have plans for potentially an even more bizarre but possibly also more useful way of describing my mixes for those who don’t recognise the tracks… ah the mystery, the suspense…

Aaaaanyway, it was another wicked show… thanks everyone for tuning in and egging me on.

I’ll try to add the label responsible for each release into my tracklists from now on alongside artists and titles. However it’s a total PITA because most of the time they don’t put that info in the filename or even the ID3 tag so I have to look it up… useful patterns may emerge from having this info about labels to watch, which will feed into my new watchlist, but if it seems like it’s not worth the time I may stop again. Or try to script it…

Mix: Live on Brap FM 5th Jan 2009

7 January 2009

First show of 2k9 kicked off with some downtempo breaks and then into dark bass’n’bleep techno, rising into chunky progressive territory, emerging into some epic and twisted electro/psy breaks, and closing out with some full-fat drum’n’bass. Fun for all the family!

Next radio show: Monday 6th October

3 October 2008

Once again Quextal seizes control of the airwaves of Brighton (101.4FM) and the fibreopticwaves of the interfrob (http://brap.fm) this Monday, 8-10pm. This month I have mostly been eating trippy minimal space techno and tech-house, so expect plenty of that, alongside the usual finely-crafted melée of doof, blurble, fizz, swoosh, thump, wonk and flip-trip-swizzlestick. You knows it.

Tune in, spazz out.

Mix: Late Nite Tech Trip

3 April 2008

Well. I got back from the pub about midnight, and then instead of going to bed like any normal person who has to be up at 7am next day, I stayed up and did a mix from the CDs I’ve just burned of the minimal techno I bought online yesterday and haven’t listened to yet. I’d inscribed the CD “Techno and/or Minimal” but it now seems the “or” was superfluous. This is not deep, chilled minimal like the middle part of this mix, and neither is it full-on hard stompy techno. It occupies that perfect centre of afterhours music (as far as I’m concerned) where it is equally suited to dancing around the lounge, hipswinging while seated, mild head nodding, or non-motile appreciation in a more horizontal and relaxed position (but definitely not sleep.) Most importantly of course, it progresses, it journeys, it trips, and takes you with it through different places and spaces in your imagination. It is alchemical – by means of sound, it creates images, feelings, sensations. Or, you create, it facilitates. I merely facilitate the facilitation. And I LOVE doing it.

There’s probably a couple of rough edges due to the fact that I was (and am) a bit mullered (could you tell?), I’ve never played these tunes before, and I couldn’t hear very well as I kept the volume low out of respect for my neighbours at this hour. But sod excuses, I managed to blow my own head off repeatedly both during the mix and listening to it back afterwards, so I thought I’d share it with you. Hope you like it, and as always your feedback is always welcome (add a comment or send an email).

Mix: Mostly Minimal…

4 December 2007

A tour of some different styles of Minimal (and some less minimal…). We start off with journeying tech-house and tripped-out techno, moving through very deep organic morphing chill, then gradually building up again towards a maxi-minimal techno climax, before touching down on a gentler, more progressive sound.
