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 πŸ™‚

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…

Watchlist updated; Next week’s show

27 September 2009

The new Watchlist, where I big up the artists and labels who I consider to be at the forefront of the music I love, has been updated. Congratulations to Amb for earning his place (it’s been long-deserved, but I’ve only recently encountered the full extent of his achievements), and to our four new contenders in the Up & Comers section, well worth keeping an eye on.

I’ve been buying really silly amounts of music lately, mainly as a result of mostly eschewing the new releases in favour of digging around for more by artists and labels that I’ve dug before. If you have hours and hours and hours to spare I highly recommend it πŸ™‚

Anyway, it would appear that most of what’s landed in my download folder this week can be filed under tags such as chunky, funky, rolling, pulsing, throbbing and wobbling, which can only mean one thing: It’s time for a QuexTech Special! So on next week’s BrapFM show on Mon 5th Oct from 20:00 UK time I’ll lock the breakbeat away in a lead-lined box and devote the full 2 hours to the 4/4s. Techno, tech-house, tech-trance. All, of course, guided by my core passion for the progressive, the psychedelic, the synaesthetic.

Don’t miss it! Sign up for a reminder!

Mix: Live on Brap FM 29th June 2009

2 July 2009

How many shows in June?!? No wonder I’ve been feeling like a busy bunny…

Another last minute cover job this one, so just over an hour, but that means you could burn it onto a CD if you so desired πŸ™‚

We start with some very tasty progressive breaks with the odd psy-tech twist, moving into techno, a slice of progressive trance, some laidback tech-house, and finishing on an absolute classic slice of evocative prog breaks from the mighty Fluke.

Mix: Live on Brap FM 6th April 2009

9 April 2009

Normally my mixes are all beatmatched to perfection (!) so tend to either hang around the same BPM or gradually accelerate from say 128 to 145. But with this month’s show I wanted to push back the boundaries, playing a more twisted style of electro-psy-breaks including some much slower and faster than the normal range.

I’d been on a massive acquisition binge with freshly burned CDs containing 60 new tunes, with only space for about 25 in a 2-hour show, so the selection is nice and varied… but the transitions and the overall shape of the journey could perhaps have done with more planning. I definitely need to figure out some more tricks to blend between wildly different BPMs.

Anyway, it didn’t seem to matter at the time, the promise of sick and twisted beats drew in a record-equalling number of listeners and an all-time record number of chatters compared to any of my previous Brap show’s, and you all loved it didn’t you, you dirty dirty people πŸ˜‰

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 melΓ©e of doof, blurble, fizz, swoosh, thump, wonk and flip-trip-swizzlestick. You knows it.

Tune in, spazz out.

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.
