Transmission#65 - A.M Revolution

After a couple of months hiatus we return with 14 cuts of the finest techno and progressive house flavours to have been doing it at DT towers! The Antigone, North Lake and Fort Romeau tracks are big favourites, as is the recent track by Sanna La Fleur, Waves, which has a prescription only bassline, clearly made for sweating in the darkness. Also worth a mention is D Bridge new recording, produced under his DBRM alias, a sumptuous meandering string laden epic which kick things off.

02. La Fleur - Waves
03. Robert Babicz feat B. James - Narcoleptic Super Soul (Mr Glass & Peter Roots remix)
04. Vrsion - Capricorn Meet Leo (The Persuader remix)

Transmission#64 - The Hush

This episode has taken longer than expected owing to a huge backlog of music which I couldn't ignore and as a result it is an extended set. Clocking in just shy of the 2 hour mark there's plenty to get excited about here, from a track off the excellent new Mark Hand Peripherals EP on Fat Dog to a forthcoming cut from Igor Jadranin on Ashley Beedle's Back To The World imprint which blazing a trail at the moment. Also worthy of mention is a mindblowingly moody new cut by Mike Khayata on the criminally obscure Departures label and a brace of tracks by Kevin Yost who always gets it right in my book. Enough chatter, ease into a set that marks 5 years of Deep Transmissions this month, what's that about time slipping by like quicksilver?

01. NY*AK - Goodbye
02. Bakradze - Sea Of Steps (HVL Space Edit)
03. Chronicles - Met You (M.K Clive's Deep Remix)
04. Flabaire - Morning Drama
05. Kevin Yost - Promise
06. NY*AK - Shadow (feat. Mark Hand and Misumami)
07. Mall Grab - Happiness
08. Mike Khayata - Night In Tunesia
09. Igor Jadranin - Boulevardd

Transmission#63 - Radio Eden

A new year brings a fresh approach for the first intallment of 2016 with a meandering, meditative journey through the undulating furrows of late 90s influenced sounds, imbued with the echo's of jazz, disco and 80s synth by which they themselves were informed. A collaborative outing with monosonics, this one had a discernable broadcast feel to it, one emphasised by its broad spectrum of tempo's. Diverse, yet cohesive, this is a fond look back at a fertile moment between 1996-98, where sounds traversed the atlantic, and the channel to permeate the music being played in the sticky, smoky basements and bars from Camden to Brick Lane. Much of the music here is current but all are endowed with the spirit of that lineage.

01. G Mills - Lodeon
02. DJ Cam - Friends & Enemies
03. Martin Hayes - Broken Memory
04. Al Zanders - Endliffe Park
05. Sobrero Galaxy - The Edge Of Space
06. Knight One – Hollow (Les Loups Remix)
07. Phil Gerus – Don’t you know I need you
08. Maya Jane Coles Feat. Thomas Knight – When I’m in love
09. French Touch – Papa Stomp
10. Green Linez - Hibiscus Pacific
11. Ashley Beedle, Lay-Far & Darren Morris - Slope (Lay-Far Upbeat Version)
12. Waterson - Tell Me (Ashley Beedles North Street mix)
13. Chaos In The CBD - 816 To Nunhead
14. StudioHeist – Eden
15. DiscoTron - Shake Dat
16. Danny Fry & Lou Willet – Colors (Kinky Movement ReMix)
17. James Benedict - 32 Minds
18. Avery SunShine – Call My Name (Ananda Project Lullaby Dub)

Transmission#62 - Shadows In The Rushes

With all the distractions the festive season presents it was dubious as to whether this one would make it into the closing stretch of 2015. Incubated throughout a wintry interlude of Trevor Deep Jr sets, Ghostpoet at the Shepherds Bush Empire, and interminable traffic in grey sleet, this is best listened to while going nowhere fast under the sodium lamps of a city folding under its own weight. Setting a contemplative tone courtesy of a rare new Global Communication remix, into a stretch of meditative, acid influenced tech house before culminating in more soulful waters toward the terminus this one is a true journey and the last one of 2015. Too many standouts to cite without reproducing most of the tracklisting so I'll let you find your own moments within it. Thanks for listening and stay locked for 2016.

01. Dusky - Skin Deep (Global Communication Remix)
02. Tantsui - The Heart
03. Cherushii - Nighsteps
04. Manuelle Musik & Steffen Sonnenschein - Adonis
05. Kocleo - Pacific Time
06. Mind Against & Locked Groove - Elysium
07. Ghostpoet - X Marks The Spot (Boxed In Remix)
08. Ben Boe - Hope For Enceladus
09. Trevor Deep Jr. & Stiletti Ana - U I Tapemixx
10. Brooklyn Is Burning - Percolatin'
11. The Organ Grinder - Trees & Sausages
12. Joyce Muniz - On You
13. Luvless - Sometimes (Desos remix)
14. Bela Brandes - Leon Diva
15. Sound Stream - Live Goes On
16. JMX - Believe It
17. Ra-Soul & Don Crisp - Love Power
18. Debukas - Carloway

Transmission#60 - Pale Blue

The agony of choice has resulted in an extended set for the 60th outing of Deep Transmissions. With there simply being too much essential music around of late I've let the pieces fall where they may with 17 tracks moving through the kind of deep and dubby territory reminiscent of the releases put out by the much respected driftwood label in the 90s, through to throbbing disco influenced grooves from Franck Roger and Damiano Von Erckert.

01. Auji Industries - Galant
02. Deep Space Orchestra - Let's Save (Lord of the Isles remix)
03. Auden - Hunger
04. Sei A - Hypervenom
05. Iron Curtis - Care
06. Isolee - Favouride
07. Junktion - Pale Blue Dot
08. Paul Cut - The Joy
09. Dan Shake & Medlar - Walk (Soulphiction mix)
10. Chocky - Know
11. Franck Roger - The Drift
12. Nimmo - Dilute This (Maya Jane Coles remix)
13. Ashworth - Farrell (Dudley Strangeways remix)
14. Frits Wentink - Geese
15. Lrusse - Ynyslas
16. Damiano von Erckert - Last One
17. Synapson - All In You (Rombo remix)

Transmission#59 - The Sentinel

Episode 59 takes place later at night than the last outing. Starting with the latest track by the inimitable Dave DK on Pampa records and easing into a couple of slow burners before moving into a more bass driven, stripped back soundscape. It always surprises me how, taken in isolation, a track may exhibit such a strong acoustic identity, yet when incorporated with others it can can seem transformed somehow. It demonstrates how context, and perception of it, is integral to how we relate to a continuous mix of evolving accents and moods. Turn this one up in the headphones and let it take you where it may.

01. Dave DK - Woolloomooloo
02. Downtown Party Network - Space Me Out
03. Maison Sky - Incline
04. M.ono - Volle Schnauze
05. Trevor Deep Jr - Believe Dub
06. Daniel Bortz - Steady Note
07. John Daly - Everlasting
08. Akase - Rust (Midland Remix)
09. Maceo Plex - Solar Detroit
10. Hackman - Grass Green (Orthographically Historialized By Timo Maas)
11. Dark Sky - Voyages (Redshape Remix)
12. Tim Green - Eclipse
13. Dusky - Squeezer

Transmission#58 - The World At One Twenty

As incessant showers herald the end of another fleeting British summer memories of an early year trip to Colombia return and with it a set of meandering, languid sounds which perfectly sum up that state of mind where you're too tranquil to get vigorous but too inspired to contemplate silence. Another largely vinyl only collection of tracks all centered around the 120bpm mark, this is the world at one twenty.

01. Ishmael - Cold Comfort Farm
02. Frank & Tony - Bring The Sun (Dub)
03. Hidden Spheres - Be A Man
04. Andy Hart - Jasmine
05. Rick Wade - Strong Arm

Transmission#57 - Hot Darkness

Smouldering July sees 14 more mostly vinyl only cuts, this time courtesy of labels such as Tusk Wax, Puss, & Rose. Probably as deep as it's been for a while with no small amount of inspiration having come from hearing some astoundingly good sets from Trevor Deep Jr of late. If you're not already familiar with him do make some time to visit him on soundcloud, it'll be rewarded. The essential percussions edit of Hot Chip's 'Need You Now' is a highlight as is the mechanised soul fuzz of Marcellus Pittman's 'Razz 09'. Finally an inspired treatment of a well known tune rounds things out. A perfect sound track for the heat of the night.

01. Zed Bias - Music Deep Inside
02. Nachbraker - You're Out Of Your Element
03. Luvless - Away From Here
04. Jan Ketel - Girliewood
05. M.ono & Luvless - Double You
06. Marcellus Pittman - Razz 09
07. Brame, Hamo - Parish Rumours
08. Tony Lionni - This Feeling
09. Kruse & Nuernberg - Drenched (Kris Wadsworth For The Hiss Addicts Mix)
10. Mr G - Song For My Cantor
11. Reno Wurzbacher - The Love You Got (Sven Weissemann Closeness Mix) 
12. Hot Chip - Need You Now (Percussions Edit)
13. Ejeca - Pushed (Bicep Remix)
14. HNNY - No

Transmission#56 - Still Life

This episode is all about looking back while facing forward, with a focus on some of the incredible raw, warm house music being released on vinyl only labels such as 2 bit crew, HPTY and luvdancin'. Not only is the music here timeless in the sense that it could have been released in the 90s, it also embodies the continued devotion of small, independent labels to the magic of releasing music made with passion in limited runs on a format which has not just endured, but actively thrived through the prolific rise of digital convenience. In keeping with this spirit, and following a thought provoking conversation with Chris Sharp on mixcloud recently about how easily DJs can fall into a neglect of the past, I've included two long time favourite cuts from the late 90s. An incredible one off by Frank Le Fever and a throbbing floor melter by Didier Sinclair.

01. 2 Bit Crew - Untitled
02. Bicep - Celeste
03. Folamour - Brothers Since The First Day
04. 25 Places - These Moments
05. Kevin Yost - Walking Out The Door
06. 4004 - Nobody Rides The Rhythm
07. 2 Bit Crew - Untitled
08. Daniel Bortz - Hot In The Fridge
09. Bodhi - Polysizer
10. Vhyce - Hard To Find
11. Didier Sinclair - Lovely Flight
12. The Black 80s - Move On (Kollektiv Turmstrasse Mix)
13. Frank Le Fever - Deep Within
