I love the organic visceral nature of the record, a piece of plastic that can bring forth such wondrous sound. It’s all pretty weird when you think about it, some sort of wonderful sonic voodoo. It’s a historical document of another time, another place, another me and a very interesting stop off traveling the road map of the records shelf-life. Personally, I find that producers who release their music exclusively on vinyl are more in touch with the underground. In the digital age, there is no shortage of house and techno for the DJ who is a bit casual or just starting out, but I find the generic formula of build-ups and breakdowns, which makes up a significant majority of these releases, a bit of a turn-off.

Be a Guest on the Show
If you play underground music, I want to hear from you. Send me a message including a link to your mixcloud or soundcloud and thoughts about your music convictions and if things work out I would be privileged to have you on the show in the future. Consider this: it’s all about the heart and soul so what I want to hear is a mix that you really feel and like, not just something to get more fans or gigs. It’s not about you – its about the music.
