KRUI Noise Radio Show 2013-10-26

This week’s mix focuses mostly on 3 new releases: Autechre’s L-system, Estroe’s Comfort And Closure, and FourTet’s Beautiful Rewind. Autechre is perhaps the most resolutely inacessible group to ever acquire a dedicated fan base; their music challenges listeners to find a new way to hear music. My thought while I was playing on the radio […]

KRUI Noise Radio 2013-07-13 DJ Mix

The 2 month gap since my last radio show means that a lot of new music has come out so this set has some ‘new’ stuff that’s a bit older than usual, and advance promos played after their release. No matter. The two releases that are of particular note to the summer’s mood are http://www.bordercommunity.com/?p=5240 […]

2013-04-20 KRUI Noise Radio

New stuff, including several skimmed off the top of the promo avalanch in my inbox. Some older stuff — the Microlife tracks were resurrected by someone from the ashes of MP3.com. In honor of the date, I brought Nancy Reagan in for a cautionary message.

More specifically Techno & House than usual. Featuring new Shawn Rudiman on Detroit Techno Mlitia, new Cephax Acid Crew album Cro Magnox, Kommon+Appleblim, Trus’ Me, and things found trawling through my ITunes collection… [audio:http://cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-20130330-KRUINoiseRadio.mp3|titles=KRUI Noise Radio 2013-03-30 Noise Radio|artists=Chaircrusher] http://cornwarning.com/chaircrusher/Chaircrusher-20130330-KRUINoiseRadio.mp3 Kommon+Appleblim Silencio Anika In The City Trus’ Me Me Tes une Pute Felix Lenferink First […]

2012-11-17 Chaircrusher DJ set.

So this was a vinyl mix, which means it isn’t as perfect with respect to mixing as my Ableton Live sets. It’s more fun, and scarier, actually, and track ordering is more spontaneous. I did a few level adjustments and cut out the skips at the end of Mercedes Boy, but other than that it’s […]

KRUI DJ Set 2012-09-22

Haven’t done a radio show since the spring, and had rather a backlog of interesting stuff that has been filtering in. Mr. DE from Detroit Ad– the man from ElectroFunk — Has a new album Sol+Mind which has an eclectic variety of tracks ranging from Prince-esque electro pop (Uh Oh) to R&B (Tonight) to Detroit […]

KRUI Radio DJ Set 2012-03-03

This mix was delayed in posting to the blog because…I forgot it. It reflects some of my recent obsessions, including the new Burial EP Kindred which seems to reflect my mood right now in ways I can’t explain. It also is a bit more tilted towards techno than my mixes have been recently, because there’s […]

KRUI DJ Set 2011-11-05

I didn’t buy any new music in the past couple weeks, but Liz McClean Knight (aka Quantazelle) sent me e-mail about the new free compilation she’s releasing on her label SubVariant, Frequencity, and the day before David Powers sent me the promo for the new EP on Klectik, Back To The Islands by Synox. So […]

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 […]

KRUI DJ Set 2011-10-08

I put out a call for unreleased/promo/advance music to include in this radio show back in September. The response wasn’t overwhelming but I got a few nice tracks from friends and acquaintances, and a rare opportunity to pick and choose among the unreleased music of my friends from Pittsburgh – Shawn Rudiman and Pittsburgh Track […]

2011-06-25 KRUI DJ Set: The Accidental Curator

I spend a lot of time at thrift stores, garage sales, and second hand stores looking for records. When I’ve collected enough interesting records together to fill a radio show, I lug the vinyl to the IMU for a radio show. Someone who spends time on EBay and Discogs searching for records, who spends hours […]

The stars of this show: Kate Simko whose new album “Lights Out” raises her profile considerably in the dance music world. Stewart Walker whose new digital label Son Of Cataclysm takes his […]

KRUI DJ Set 2011-04-28

Once more into the breach: stitching together something from various styles of music… Radiohead — for those who bought King Of Limbs they sent out e-mails about a free download of 2 songs “Supercollider” & “The Butcher.” If you pay attention to the whinging class King Of Limbs sucked, but to them I suggest they […]

Special Afternoon edition during the Mision Creek Festival. This was in the basement of Public Space one, standing at a cramped counter with crap monitors. I didn’t have a lot of new tracks to drop, so I let each one ride longer than I usually do in the mix, and I think they’re worth it […]

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.

Various 80s dance pop obscurities and hits, some house and a lot of Detroit techno, ending up with the Afx remix of 808 State’s “Flow Coma”

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. […]

KRUI Noise Radio — DJ Mix

There’s some overlap in tracks played with my September DJ Mix, but this mix is longer, and starts out with a sampling of the many amazing tracks by the recently-departed and deeply missed Aaron Carl Ragland. The funny thing about Aaron Carl is that I knew him as a person first and as a fan […]
