Chaircrusher June 1 2012 WNUR Radio Mix

This is being played tonight (June 1 2012) on WNUR Radio’s long running Street Beat radio show in Chicago. Thanks to Max for the hookup.

Music-wise it’s my usual thrashing all over the map under the guise of eclecticism. Some Detroit, some UK Bass, some new Dutch Techno, Vince Watson, and my dubbed to frack slow-mo house version of a Desmond Dekker track.

NOTE: All of these tracks are in one of three categories: 1) I bought them 2) They’re Creative Commons & Freely available on the Internet or 3) They were given to me directly by the artist. I won’t say that I’ve never downloaded anything and not paid for it. But when it comes to music I put in mixes or play out, I think it’s important to pay for it if you play it.  Otherwise you’re just another punk ass motherfucker trying to get something for nothing.

TRACKLIST:

  1. Flying Lotus “Parisian Goldfish”
  2. Burial & Four Tet “Moth”
  3. Kaupo “Detroit Kutsub”
  4. FBK & Shawn Rudiman “As the Ocean …” (Unreleased)

Laks Recordings: Estonian Techno, Who Knew?

Laks Recordings is an Estonian Techno Label who e-mailed me out of the blue and sent links to their two latest releases. They’re worth checking out — the Egobomber EP is delightfully all over the place, miles from anything else I’ve heard lately. Imagine someone taking the template of soulful Detroit Techno and messing it up with lush euro strings and worldless female voice.

Not feeling all the Kaupo stuff — a little too fond of odd FM squaks — but “Ohtud” is pretty sweet.

You can buy their stuff on Juno Download. I haven’t heard it yet but Minivliner’s “My NY Wiener” has a grand title going for it.

Bunker NYC Show I wish I could go to

Bryan Kasenic, a super nice guy who booked me twice to play at the late lamented Halcyon in Brooklyn, continues to be involved with arguably the best electronic music nights in New York City.  This latest one for next weekend is a completely amazing lineup.  I buy a lot of music from Boomkat, and the line-up is heavy on some of my favorite Boomkat finds.  No mistake that Andy Stott and Claro Intelecto release records on Modern Love, the Boomkat in-house label.

Department of Dance Music WTF: Kurd Maverick?

The world already had enough versions of “Blue Monday”but Noooooo, this German guy “Kurd Maverick” decided to cash in on it yet again. I haven’t heard the whole track, Gott Sei Dank! But the snippet at trackitdown is more than enough.

It’s putting a lot on this “Kurd Maverick” to say that this sort of thing is what is wrong with commersh dance music, but everything annoying, cloying and awful about modern club music is all there in this track.

And WTF about the name “Kurd Maverick?” Here’s what it makes me think of:
Curds

John McCain
Maverick
