BSOTS 088 - from sonic seduction to aural ascension...
Now Playing: nickel and dime radio with dj small change (wfmu.org)
Topic: my podcasts


this show was a long time in the making. i've wanted to play some of these songs for well over a year, but other sounds and episode concepts kept pushing them to the side. however, with the mental stress and strain that i've been experiencing lately between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., i think this is the perfect time to drop this one. i get the sense that many others are going through their own mental, emotional and spiritual wars. if that describes you, then this show is for you as well.

this feels like a vastly different show than the ones i usually put together, but it's one that i think fits well within the BSOTS channel. it's a number of hypnotic lock grooves and loop-driven pieces along with some highlife outta nigeria and electronic/african tribal hybrids. "yalayala" - i've been wanting to play this cut for y'all for a while now. i've been dancing down the street on the way home listening to this one - instant trance wherever i am. it's an honor to represent for liquid liquid: "lock groove" hones in on what they do so well. there's also a seductive downtempo moment from marcia blaine, funky minimalism from camp, a gorgeous christian walt remix of a laserlong tune, and one of my favorite compositions of all time from steve reich. i think this one's a keeper and i hope you do, too. may it provide the musical therapy you need to get you through the day.

p.s. screwed up the reading of the playlist slightly: marcia blaine comes before camp in the mix, not the other way around. by the way, if you're wondering what the short instrumental is in the beginning, that's "out west" by producer oh no. and no, it was never actually featured on a previous episode as the show's opening suggests. this could very well be a running joke for future episodes and an excuse to hit cats over the heads with short snippets from beat tapes or instrumental albums before getting the show started. we'll see if it stays...
