Mix: Tales Of The Interstitial episode X:
live on PsyMusic 18th May 2010

2 July 2010

For the tenth instalment of Tales we keep it nicely interstitial, meandering through an eclectic psychedelic selection of breaks, techno, neurofunk, autonomic dnb, and chill.
Sorry this one took so long to arrive on the site, I somehow lost the tracklist and had to recompile it. Now I remember why I started keeping lists as I go along!

17 May 2010

Sorry for the delay on this one… took a while to sort out the tracklist! Plenty of chunky progressive in effect, along with psybreaks, melodic dark electro and more, and closed out with some lush chilled beats. This one going out to Mike. Next show: 18th May 2010 – ooh, that’s tomorrow! πŸ™‚

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 3Β½ πŸ˜€ Although since I only just posted December’s, you may have quite a lot of catching up to do… πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜€ See you next time!

Next show: Tue 20th Oct with special guest LuQas!

15 October 2009

For next Tuesday’s Tales of the Interstitial on PsyMusic Radio, I’ll be joined in the studio by rising psybreaks superstar LuQas.

LuQas is Luke Trott from Brighton England. Born and raised in Bristol, he’s been into dance music since around 2000, where friends and family supplied him a constant feed of prog-house mix tapes. By chance he purchased an early Y3K album after spotting a Sasha track and has been into breaks ever since. Not satisfied with being a punter, he bought his first decks in 2001, promoted a successful Brighton breaks night in 2004 and now is rapidly finding his niche as a producer of deep techy noises.

He draws influences from many different genres, particularly psy-trance and techno, and his varied DJ sets reflect this. Now a resident at the awesome night Slackers Convention, he plays regularly to a loyal crazy crowd of Brighton revellers. You can also catch him on NSB Radio every Saturday night where he fronts the Slackers show alongside Pav and Toxic Shock. With tracks signed to Dead Famous, Yellowfinger Communications, Hardplace Records and Future Perfect, LuQas is starting to gain recognition internationally, with forthcoming gigs in Croatia and Prague.

Luke will be bringing along a sackload of full-on psybreaks, and yours truly will be keeping it interstitial with the finest fizzling 4/4s on the flip. Whatever that means.

In the words of my guest: “Rah!!!!!!” Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Radio Schedule Update

20 September 2009

Due to other commitments I’m dropping my PsyMusic show Tales Of The Interstitial to monthly instead of fortnightly. It will be on the third Tuesday of every month, so the next one is 20th October.

My monthly Void Radio residency on BrapFM show continues to be on the first Monday of every month, so the next one of those is 5th October. Hopefully this will leave more scope for extra cover sessions on NSB too, which will be announced via the usual channels.

15 September 2009

Hugs to everyone I met at this year’s superb Waveform Festival. I’ve been to all three of them and this one was undoubtedly my favourite so far, thanks to all the lovely people. Also unexpectedly scored my debut festival set on Sunday evening in the little orange tent. Unfortunately I couldn’t actually see the dancefloor from the booth but I’m told it went down well πŸ™‚

So, if you’re visiting this site for the first time having received a limited edition Mk2 business card, welcome, and hope you can tune in tonight to Psymusic Radio from 7pm (UK time) – please come and make yourself known in the shoutbox during the show (you need to register for the forum if you aren’t on there already).

New show forthcoming on PsyMusic Radio!

11 August 2009

Been a while in the planning this, but I’m delighted to announce that my new twice-a-month show on PsyMusic begins next Tuesday 18th August @ 7pm (UK), and thereafter on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. (Want to join a reminder service?)

The show is called Tales of the Interstitial (all the other PsyMusic shows have strange names, I didn’t want to feel left out…) and every fortnight we’ll be setting sail on a journey across the many faces of psychedelic electronica, floating effortlessly between psybreaks, progressive psytrance, psytechno and psychill, and particularly trying to find the lost chords in the spaces between… in the interstitial

One of the significant differences between this show and the others that I’ve been involved with, is there’s no official finishing time. I plan to do at least 2 hours, but it may be 2.5, 3, 4… it all depends on you, the listeners, to get into the chatroom and bring your influence to bear! On PsyMusic the chatroom is called the ShoutBox and it’s on the forum front page (different to the main homepage of the site), or here’s a bigger version. You need to be registered on the forum to use it (registration is free of course). It looks and feels just like an IRC-based chat (like Brap or NSB), but apparently it isn’t really IRC so you can’t use your own client.

Together we will weave a journey… a story. Let’s make it epic.

“Tales of the Interstitial” starts 7pm on Tuesday 18th August. Tune in via or using this direct link. Don’t forget to join the chatroom too.
