Mixes Of The Week: 27/11/17


This week’s top mixes include Rings Around Saturn’s Beachside Bass, DEBONAIR’s Party-Starter and Proper Motor Funk with Fit Siegel.

DEBONAIR’s Party-Starter. One of NTS Radio’s longest-standing resident DJs, DEBONAIR’s eclectic and party-starting sets have found acclaim at Panorama Bar, Lux Fragil and Unsound Festival over the past few years. Her new Fact mix is “a club excursion,” she explains, “taking you through the various sounds I might incorporate into a set whilst playing in your favourite dingy basement”.

The Black Madonna Connecting Past with Present. Champion of dance music’s core values and of marginalised communities, The Black Madonna joins RA for their 600th podcast. She delivers an eclectic mix of “post-punk, and there’s some stuff that borders on EBM, new wave, hi-NRG… I am really interested in music from periods where a genre maybe hadn’t become super self-aware,” she explains.

Rings Around Saturn’s Beachside Bass. All original, bass-heavy dub and dub-inspired techno from Melbourne’s Rory McPike, aka Rings Around Saturn, hot on the heels of his new Electronic Decay release as Bleekman. “Inside there is two remixes from this year, one Turner Street Sound forthcoming track and the rest of the songs I’ve made over the past few years.” Stream and download above.

Call Super’s Truancy Volume. Having just released his great new LP Arpo on Houndstooth, Berlin-based experimental techno producer Call Super contributes 85 minutes of playful and dreamlike house and techno to the Truancy Volumes mix series, featuring agile fast cuts and volume chops, and breathtaking acapella transitions.
