This time around we start out on a deeper vibe – glitchy, techy and trippy – rolling smoothly up through some sunny progressive breaks with a funky twist – and finishing up with proper chunky psybreaks. Go with the Flow.

Skanky Glitch Crunk special!
live on NSB 9th Jul 2011

13 July 2011

It’s been far too long since I infected your eardrums with the genre that I (and probably only I) like to call skanky glitch crunk, so I went shopping at Addictech and we rolled with the funky, wobbly, squelchy midtempo vibe for most of the show. The chatroom showed their love for the sounds, and I only managed to play about a third of what I bought, so you can probably expect more crunk to pop up at random intervals in future shows 🙂 Had to shoehorn some psybreaks onto the end as I needed to play some killer promos and, of course, to spin my own little tune in celebration of it finally being released 🙂
Special thanks to Mouldy Soul for sending over some of his fresh new squelch, and Spectral Theory for rising to my challenge to get his new tune finished in time!

Special Guest this Saturday

29 January 2010

I’m starting to line up a series of special guests to appear on forthcoming shows, and I’m delighted to announce that the first of these will be a return appearance of the man like Digital Fist. If you caught his previous guest appearance on Brap FM you’ll know he’s a man of fine taste in glitchy electrobreaks and hypno-dub techno. As he’ll be joining me for Quexotic Adventures on NSB Radio this coming Saturday, it’ll be the breakbeat side of this equation that we’ll be exploring, so we can expect the likes of Jnr Hacksaw, Ion Driver, Bass Kittens, Si Begg and Wrexx in his bag, plus plenty of surprises and some hot exclusives… set your alarms now, you won’t want to miss this!

Quextal vs Digital Fist part deux: 19:00 – 21:00 GMT, Sat 30th Jan, NSB Radio. Don’t forget to join us in the chatroom!

Mix: Tales Of The Interstitial episode VII:
live on PsyMusic 19th Jan 2010

22 January 2010

If you’ve been struggling to get through all the recent 4+ hour shows, you’ll be pleased to hear that this month’s Interstitial clocks in at a mere 3½ 😀 Although since I only just posted December’s, you may have quite a lot of catching up to do… 😉

Warning: it starts off very glitchy: I think I inadvertantly lost a few listeners in the first minute who thought there must be a technical problem. Oops. Nope, it’s just a weird intro track from P&G…

After the intro we kick off with two of my latest artist discoveries: dope crunky beats from Opiuo, and blissed out fusion sounds from The Nasha Experience. Then we go delving into the darker, glitchier side of psybreaks and electro for a while. That leads into some techy and progressive 4/4s, before we bring the breaks back on an epic trippy nuskool tip, throwing in some techno and tech-funk for good measure, and finally bringing you down gently with a more chilled dub-tech breakbeat vibe.

Big ups all the Shoutbox crew for their support, especially n0sS – another enthusiastic new convert to Quextal’s Radical Interstitialism 😀 See you next time!

Mix: Tales Of The Interstitial episode I:
live on PsyMusic Radio 18th Aug 2009

18 August 2009

Couldn’t have hoped for a better turnout and reaction for the first chapter of my new residency 🙂

True to the show’s remit we jumped around the genres, but kept it mostly upbeat for this week, alternating between psybreaks, progressive psytrance and chunky techno most of the way, serving up the dark and the uplifting, the deep, the epic and the glitchy… and finally closing out with some choice dubstep.

Big love to all those who tuned in and the many who made the effort to register just to present themselves in the chatroom, you are all stars! Hope you can join me for the next one on Tue 1st Sept @ 7pm

Mix: Live on NSB 10th Aug 2009

10 August 2009

My occasional series of late-notice covers for random NSB DJs continues… this time I was standing in for JoeBot. His normal tune selection doesn’t have a lot of overlap with mine anyway, so I threw caution to the wind and, alongside some beautiful progressive breaks to lull you into a false sense of security, went through some styles of breaks that don’t seem to get much airing on NSB: deep hypnotic, progressive acid, chopped-up glitchy, growly electro zap… a quick dip in the funky sea of midtempo glitch-dub in the middle… and other stuff that Addictech might categorise as “Heavy” and “Dope”.

It seemed to go down well. For most of the show NSB was the most listened to breaks netradio station in the world, with about 30 more listeners than DI Breaks. Might have happened before but I’ve never seen it. Thanks to everyone who tuned in and all those supporting in the chatroom.

Very special thanks to Mike Metacognition – a good number of the tunes played tonight were introduced to me by him. The man has outstanding taste, so I plan to get him along as a guest on a future show. Respect. Ahh Yeh.

Thanks also to Ian @ Dead Famous for the fine promos.
