Mix: Quexotic Adventures #003:
live on NSB 19th Dec 2009

20 December 2009

Another epic extended show… I carried on past the end of my allotted 2 hours as someone was supposed to be covering the next show but had said he might be a little bit late. In the end he didn’t turn up until nearly the end of that show, so I ended up doing the full 4 hour double feature. Download this mix, and the recent 5+ hour BrapFM marathon, onto your mp3 player, and you’re equipped with enough first-class choonage to survive almost any journey. Except maybe Eurostar.

Here we’ve got mostly my intoxicating special blend of the fortnight’s finest new releases and backcat discoveries in psybreaks, progressive breaks, neck-tingling nuskool, electrifying electro, twisted tech-breaks… and our first tentative foray on NSB into something that could be described as techno (but it’s Robosapiens so it must be ok). But just for shizzles, around the halfway mark as a kind of interlude we go on a brief tour of some classic oldskool hardcore and jungle techno from 1992-1994ish. This section doesn’t exactly fit with the flow to either side… hopefully this lump of strange-sounding foreign material is sufficiently colourful that you won’t find it too obtrusive…

Lots of hot promos and demos this week – thanks to all those labels and artists who sent them. In particular, thanks to unsigned artists Cannabinoid and Unconscious Mind(s) for allowing me to display their wares. I’m very interested in supporting other unsigned acts in this way… assuming I like your sound of course! Think you’ve got something I need to hear? Hit me up.

Next show: Sat 2nd Jan 2010, 19:00 GMT, NSB.

Happy Yule/Saturnalia/Hannukah/Christmas/Cashmas/WinterFest… and here’s to more odysseys in 2010 🙂

Mix: my last regular show for Void Radio:
live on BrapFM 7th Dec 2009

20 December 2009

Super-Extended 5+ hour marathon!

So after about two years of doing Void Radio slots on BrapFM, I decided to draw it to a close so that I’m not juggling three shows. I’ve enjoyed the freedom that Brap gives to play any genre, and I’m grateful to them and Spoll/OutOfTheVoid for giving me a route in… but the number of listeners tuning in for live broadcasts has always been woeful. It provided me with a good, low pressure introduction to the world of net radio, helped me build my confidence on the mic, and garnered some enthusiastic fans like Mike and Angel, but now I have a show on NSB with regularly 200+ listeners, Brap’s single-figure listener counts seem pointless. I know many more of you enjoyed the archives, but hopefully by dropping the show I’ll have more time to produce promo mixes for the site instead.

So for my last show, I played a wide range of genres, and included plenty of classics and all-time personal favourite tunes. Since there was no show after mine, and I had support in the chatroom, I just kept going, and going… for over 5 hours. So bear in mind the archive is a lot larger than usual…

Mix: Tales Of The Interstitial episode V:
live on PsyMusic 17th Nov 2009

17 November 2009

Cheers to everyone who tuned in and especially the chatroom crew. We had an enjoyable 3 hour odyssey from breaks to progressive to techno, back to breaks with a few cheeky slabs of darkfloor electro, a smidge of exceptionally rare high-class dubstep, and then an assortment of blissful psychill. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

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 🙂

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 with Digital Fist 7th Sep 2009

7 September 2009

Many thanks to my guest Digital Fist for bringing his unique blend of deep and dark glitchy and hypnotic breaks and techno to tonight’s proceedings. He’ll be back (in the meantime, if you need more glitch to sustain you, I recommend picking up his latest mix, it’s a corker). And a big shout to all the listeners and chatters, record-breaking numbers of both 🙂
