2011-10-22 KRUI DJ Set

Sean Deason NCW The Black Dog This mix is focused pretty tightly on a couple of upcoming releases – Elements Volume 3 by Sean Deason, and Panther Veil By NCW — and the very recent release by The Black Dog, LIBER DOGMA. It’s also one of the few mixes I’ve done that focuses on Techno […]

2011-02-12 KRUI DJ Set

This set was driven by a trip to Dave’s Records in Chicago, where I crouched on the floor going through the used $1 Dance Records. I also did what I usually do, which is look through a section of floor to ceiling shelves of records in my office I haven’t visited lately.

Attack of the KRUI DJ Sets

The past 2 Saturday nights I spent in the KRUI studios playing vinyl. I make no great claims for my mixing skills, but I guarantee this is 100% real for better or worse. Rather than, as I have in the past, manually type in an HTML table, I made my track lists in Google Docs. […]

Chaircrusher September Mix

This is what Google Image Search comes up with if you search for “UK Bass” Sequenced live in Ableton Live — 45 tracks in 99 minutes. Starts at 100 BPM and ends at 142. I find it hard to stick with one particular beat so there are some hectic transitions.

Cooly G Dub Organizer 7: Review + Minimix

[audio:http://www.cornwarning.com/xfer/CoolyG-DubOrganizer7-Minimix.mp3|titles=Dub Organizer 7 Minimix|artists=Cooly G (mixed by Chaircrusher)] http://www.cornwarning.com/xfer/CoolyG-DubOrganizer7-Minimix.mp3 I’ve been accused of having a crush on Cooly G. Why wouldn’t I? She’s talented, beautiful, and even cursory internet stalking on-line research indicates she’s got a bubbly, charismatic personality. But my real crush is on Cooly G’s talents as a producer. Along with Roska, she’s […]

Summer 2010 DJ Mix

It’s been mad stupid hot in Iowa City this summer. I like it that way! There’s nothing wrong with sweating. Which is something you learn if you like to go dancing in a club. Somehow the hotter and sweatier it is, the better. To satisfy this need for humidty I’ve assembled a mix out of […]

April Of Two Minds DJ Mix

Out of work today with a cold, so I lashed up the mix I’d been collecting tracks for.  The theme, again, is dub techno & dubstep, with some detours into other genres.  The track selection basically came out of listing my ITunes library in the order of most recently added, and picking tracks that I […]

KRUI Noise Radio Chaircrusher DJ Mixes

Here they are, hot off the presses. Turn your speakers DOWN before you play them because I noticed in studio that the bass on these is huge. Something I’ll watch out for on future mixes. Doesn’t sound distorted or bad, just HUGE. http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-04112009-Techno-Mix.mp3 http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-04112009-Techno-Mix.mp3 http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-04112009-House-Mix.mp3 http://www.cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-04112009-House-Mix.mp3 Track Listings Mix 1 Congos Congoman (12″ Mix) New […]

Jumping on the Dubstep Bandwagon, 5 Years Late….

I don’t claim to be an expert on Dubstep. I’m not British for one thing, and my taste runs to stuff that really isn’t in the clubbing Dubstep comfort zone. What I like about Dubstep is its heritage twice or thrice removed from Jamaican Dub, its re-purposing of the 2 step shuffle from UK Garage, […]
