A 60-minute mix of intergalactic beats to celebrate our one year anniversary on Noods Radio. No talking, just music.
Two Hungry Ghosts – Noods Radio (August 2019)
Projekt 22 – Kaizen (One.Seventy)
I love it when producers do something different, this beatless atmospheric track is captivating and haunting setting the scene perfectly for our little journey into the cosmos. Forthcoming on the One.Seventy LP “Permissions”.
Ghost Warrior – Seven Gates (One.Seventy)
Straight-up science from Ghost Warrior, intricate and detailed edits with a nod to Mr Parkes. Also forthcoming on the “Permissions” LP.
Acid Lab – Another Radius (Guerilla Bass Records)
More “faux-tek” styles, this time from Acid Lab. Even has a cheeky nod to “One Nation”, thanks to Rafael Hermanos for sending me this one! You’re right, I did like it!
Shiken Hanzo – Kali Ma (Repertoire)
Experimental drum and bass from one of the scenes most reliable labels. Forthcoming on Repertoire, the guys continue to push boundaries with this deep, tribal and futuristic take on modern jungle.
Out Of Fuel – Fragments (Ronin Ordinance)
Featuring a pulsating groove with a techno edge, wild electronics and twisted bleeps this track is as intense as they come. Watch out for more from Out Of Fuel forthcoming on Ronin Ordinance later this year.
Unknown92 – Untitled 1 (Genso)
Unknown92 adds to the tension swiftly building a sense of unease and hostility with this track taken from his forthcoming EP on Ronin Ordinance offshoot, Genso. Boisterous, claustrophobic and untamed.
Sicknote – Emerald Estate (Stereocilia)
A perfect blend of rough and smooth. A combative kick drum is tamed by soft ghostly strings, filtered breaks and a delicate horn sample. Dub influenced thugged out science friction.
Sicknote – Coiled Miracle (???)
More unreleased Sicknote, this time built around an unconventional drum break and mystical harmonies. This really reminds me of all that was great about the music in 95/96, full of character, charm and powerful melodies.
Soul Connection – Sun Chaser (Smooth N Groove Records)
When I first heard LTJ Bukem play this I just had to track it down. Crafted around tightly looped breaks and Detroit keys this is intergalactic techno backed with a deep and vigorous bassline.
Chromatic – Blend (Tempo)
Another track supported by LTJ Bukem this featured on the Chromatic EP released on Tempo earlier this year. Jazz style keys and atmospheric chords help to create a perfect liquid influenced roller with just the right amount of funk.
Black Barrel – Lost Meaning (Metalheadz)
Taken from the forthcoming “Elevate EP” on Metalheadz this is an impeccable alchemy of classic 720 and cutting edge Headz. A regression session to when Blame was pushing the “intelligent” sound but taking it intergalactic rather than the aquatic dolphin and wave samples of Good Looking.
Lynch Kingsley – Astral Pulse (Foxy Jangle)
We close with a new track on Foxy Jangle, commonly known for amen rinse outs and 90’s influenced dancefloor releases this is drum and bass at its most atmospheric. The beats are soulful and layers of samples are full of beauty and elegance. A landmark release for the label and a gorgeous way to end the mix.
Broadcast on Noods Radio 15/08/19 between 14:00-15:00.
