Juno Reactor's The Mutant Theatre!

Hi everyone,

I've been a fan of Ben Watkins and Juno Reactor for a lot of years. Their new album roots in a stage show Watkins conceived. The review below gives more information on this and even some video clips.

Even with the visuals, the music is great. Music to whirl away in, forget the day & the troubles of one's own & the world for awhile. Find another kind of intensity to enjoy. Enjoy! :)

Show #150! Grateful Dead's Grayfolded (Part 1)

Hi everyone!

This show has been on the air for nearly 10 years, and here it is hitting show #150! Pretty cool. Celebrating with a fat joint and Part 1 of this strange & charming record. Check out what the ol' Wikipedia says:

Just hit your pipe, & go :)

Jon Hopkins' Singularity!

Hi everyone,

Pitchfork said this: "Singularity is a beat-music odyssey pitched between acid house and introspective ambient bliss, constant change and eternal return, sublunary and sublime. It also combines many other opposites into thrillingly unstable wholes. The producer’s distinctive techno is coarse and granular, as if electricity were a solid you could grind in a mill, yet it flows in a graceful stream. It squelches like muck and shines like crystal. It beats like a body, but it moves like a mind."

Lotta words. And I like words. But this music is water, weird time, and being lost happy. Not much else.

Infected Mushroom's Return to the Sauce!

Hi everyone,

Infected Mushroom is an Israeli psychedelic trance band, been around for about 20 years. Their music is a lot of fun, good for deep journeys, for dancing, for whatever you like. 5 g of shrooms in silent darkness or the rainbow glow of the dance party. Give a listen on my show, try it out!

Paul Sch├╝tze's The Sky Torn Apart!

Hi everyone,


I like this explanation of this long ambient piece from: http://freq.org.uk/reviews/paul-schutze-the-sky-torn-apart/

Paul Schutze is an Australian sound composer who has been producing music since the late 1980s. This album, his first in eight years, is released on the extremely apt Glacial Movements Records from Italy and is one long, gradually unfolding treasure that is almost like an attempt at prehistoric music; constructing sounds that pre-date what we understand and go back to the formation of the earth.

I think it's just a matter of climbing into the flow and go-just-going :)
