BSOTS 136 - Selection Obsession (pt. 2)
Now Playing: Sunday morning praise selections...
Topic: my podcasts

There are a number of new releases that we go to bat for in this episode: Omar, Marc Mac as Nu Era, Tall Black Guy, Elle Stilnovo, Jesse Futerman, and Art of Fresh, to name a few. The future of electronic music is in very good hands as artists like Machinedrum and The Range clearly demonstrate. Full-on dancefloor insanity is represented through Stan Smith (respect due to producer Daz-I-Kue on his cut - it's a monster). From the deep tribal feel of Irfan Rainy and Baba Israel's "Freedom Music" to the contemplative reminiscing of Guru's greatness from Marco Polo and Talib Kweli, there's a lot to talk about in this episode. Then again, why about talk about it when it's best to just let you listen.

So please listen and hopefully enjoy. Thanks much.

BSOTS 135 - Selection Obsession (pt.1)
Now Playing: random goodness on youtube
Topic: my podcasts

Hello, everyone. There's lots of great music out there and Camp Lo-Fi's back on the case, chasing after grooves wherever they may be found. This episode is basically a catch-up session on the first three months of 2013, including some choice cuts from previous years in the mix as well.

This year is already off to a ridiculously good start with releases from Ty, Bonobo, and Mark de Clive Lowe. The new songs from Eagle Nebula and Georgia Anne Muldrow are practically interwoven into my DNA at this point, getting heavy rotation in my travels. The memory and living legacy of The Ohio Players co-founder Leroy "Sugarfoot" Bonner is shown some love through hip-hop as their classic "Funky Worm" gets re-worked by Karriem Riggins as well as Def Dee & Zar. In addition, there are a number of head-nodding instrumentals, from the neck-snapping bounce of Feb9 to the heavy funk vibe of house producer Joss Moog. Then there's DJ Sun of Houston, TX, whose "Monday Drive" originally came out in 2007, but has been included on his brand new album Hundred. Lovers of downtempo and hip-hop instrumentals will definitely want to seek this one out.

With April 4, 2013 being the 45th anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination, I thought I'd play a cut from MUTE that incorporates a piece from Nina Simone that she wrote in honor of the slain civil rights leader. Beyond that, there' s some serious dancefloor business courtesy of Sieren and Zanshin and I can't forget about the lyrical genius of Big Daddy Kane rhyming over Marco Polo's production, or MaG spitting bars to an orchestra. The acapella beauty of The Silver Lake Chorus is simply beyond words. And did I mention that Tricky has a new album waiting in the wings?

Yep, it's that kind of show. If this one doesn't provide evidence that there's great music out there, nothing will. Hope you enjoy the ride.

BSOTS GONE (buck)WILD: An antidote to all things ratchet...
Now Playing: Del Jones - Positive Vibes
Topic: my podcasts

Hello from Camp Lo-Fi.  Certainly hope that 2013 has been treating you well so far.

As of this blog post, Radio BSOTS has been in existence for about 7.5 years.  Approximately 134 episodes have been created over that period of time.   Twelve of those shows make up the occasional primal scream heard from Camp Lo-Fi known as BSOTS GONE (buck)WILD.  For those of you unfamiliar with this sideshow attraction, allow me to break it down for you.

Radio BSOTS is dedicated to independent and podsafe hip-hop, soul, funk, and electronic music.  Every now and again, I like to push at the genre boundaries a little bit, get more brash and reckless with what I play and rant in front of a microphone.  It's a holdover practice from a show that I used to produce called endless shouting matches with yourself.  There were 16 episodes of that show created between 2006 and 2008.  (A few of those episodes were still able to be accessed through Mevio until February of 2012, when they closed out all the free accounts and strictly focused on their paid content.)  After it podfaded into the sunset, I brought the "no holds barred" aesthetic of endless shouting matches to Camp Lo-Fi and BSOTS GONE (buck)WILD was born.  Along with my rants and/or commentary, it's a show that includes music for the party people, music for those of a political mindset, and music for the rest of us who find ourselves somewhere in between. 

The biggest influences for the creation of these shows continue to be Prince Paul, Negativland, and Steve Stein a.k.a. Steinski.  As for current inspirations, I gotta give big shouts to everybody involved with the EnthusLife podcast and the Cold Slither podcast.  Both shows have injected some much-needed laughter into my life over the past few months and have reminded me that, above everything else, creating a podcast should be FUN.  While it's nice to be professional and put your best foot forward, if it's not fun, then there's no point in doing it at all. 

The "buckwild" experience is where I really get to let loose and have fun.  It's a nod to my college radio and cassette tape collage days.  A lot of work goes into those shows and it's definitely where I'm the most honest and vulnerable. It will make its return to the BSOTS channel in May of 2013.  In the meantime, here's a list of previous BGB shows for anyone that needs to play catch-up.  And as always, I thank you so much for taking the time to listen.

BSOTS 134 - Catchin' Feelings: Love (and variations thereof...)
Now Playing: Idlewild (the movie)
Topic: my podcasts

This episode is part of the sixth annual Cupid's Hunt Podcast Collaboration, an event where podcasters and DJs each put together their own shows about love on and around Valentine's Day. Seeing as how love can be a bit messy sometimes, this mix is about love, like, lust, anger, and regret. By all means, feel free to jump in where you fit in.

Big up to TGrundy at Rhythms In Black Satin for bringing us all together once again in the name of love. This one is definitely different from past Cupid's Hunt offerings out of Camp Lo-Fi; here's hoping that you enjoy it.

BSOTS 133 - Just A Touch Of Twenty Twelve (pt. 2)
Now Playing: Patrice O'Neal - Elephant In The Room
Topic: my podcasts

With every year that passes, the sheer volume of music increases exponentially, which means that there's more chance of missing great songs and albums in the rising tide of new releases. There's no harm in spending a little more time with great artists and songs from the previous year, so why not? Just 15 more.

My apologies for messing up the name of one of the artists while reading off the playlist. It's not "Flying High Thunder," it's "Flying DOWN Thunder." Sorry about that.

BSOTS 128 - Freeform Is The New Norm
Now Playing: watching scrubs...
Topic: my podcasts

For this episode, I knew I wanted to get back to basics and represent for heads that I know personally who are making some great music right now (Hired Gun, Baba + Yako, DJ Center). At the same time, there are new sounds coming in from all sectors of the globe that I wanted to touch upon as well. There's the beautiful electronics of Kelpe and Kidsuke, the future funk of Tall Black Guy as well as Amalia and Reggie B, and even new music from familiar faces like Arrested Development, Craig G, and Fishbone's lead singer Angelo Moore. It's a play list that goes all over the place, but hopefully makes some rhythmic sense in the end. Be sure to gather up some free downloads for yourself and here's hoping that you enjoy the selections featured within this show. Regards and respect...
