miss you

January 20, 2010

It seems a double loss this month to learn of both the end of much loved website and podcast brokenbeatradio.com, as well as the music career of Dominic Stanton aka Domu/Umod/Sonar Circle etc.  Perhaps the writing was on the wall, limited activity and a comparative lack of updated podcasts the last few years from broken beat radio and a few telling interviews in the case of Domu.  So And So, no longer is the domain brokenbeatradio.com, all that remains is a list of dead links for what was once one of the best podcasts running 2004-2009 (oh why did I delete those mixes!).   Domu, however, leaves behind a legacy of productions that will be with us forever (should we manage to track them down, damn limited pressings!). It is comforting though that at least he provided parting words, touching at that.

Below, a few domu highlights and some vids from the old bnb radio site.

Domu – Worldwide

Umod – All In My Mind

Sonar Circle – Mist From Mars

Hudson Mohawke on the Essential Mix

November 28, 2009

On this snowed in Saturday morning, I thoroughly enjoyed blasting Hudson Mohawke on the Essential Mix along with my morning coffee while whippin up a batch of muffins. Whatever you’re up to when tuning in, do it loud. Enjoy the weekend.

flexisonic @ theartprojectonline.com Projections Gallery. July 17 2009 – Artlife Calgary

July 4, 2009

our friends over at theartprojectonline are hosting an art gallery show down at artlife in Calgary, Ab on July 17, 2009.  .  .the show entitled Projections, and here is a blurb from their website:

The show details are:
Calgary, Alberta July 17-19th at  Artlife  called Projections.  ArtLife is a gallery, as well as a well known boutique located at 1312 1st SW, Calgary, Alberta. It has a very large following in the Alberta Arts scene and will give our crew of artists who wish to participate large exposure. The space for this event is limited, so we will be focusing on local Calgary artists, and artists that can attend the event. However, we will be introducing a new projector program feature for all our artists to participate.

The projector program is a new feature that will be offered to site artists that are unable to make the event or wish to display larger pieces of work that may not be easily transported.  The art will be displayed in high resolution, and feature all necessary information regarding descriptions about the art, artist and pricing. We strongly believe the projector to be the future of our art gallery parties as artists will no longer need to be concerned with shipment, it will provide flexibility and create an interactive way to retain future buyer’s attention. We are extremely excited about the projector gallery concept and looking forward to pilot this project at the Calgary event.

We have chosen Women in Need as our local Charity it support for this event. Women In Need Society (WINS) is a charitable not-for-profit organization in Calgary. Established in 1992, WINS’ mission is to help women help themselves through innovative and effective programs and services.

First heard this song Annie Mac’s Mash Up last week. Always a great place to hear new music and remixes.  Buraka Som Sistema does a nice job with Dance Dance Dance by Lykke Li. Very smooth.

letanque radio

October 17, 2008

i was inspired by cam’s mix to spend some time on the wheels of steel last night.  so i’ll through this one up right here.  its a leftfield downtempo strole, no dance bangers.  best for work, waiting for the bus, long car rides, that kinda gig.  and you will notice right away the focus is on the songs, not the mixes, i prefered to let each song play out and to be listened to as they were written.  so its more like radio than a mix.
