THE PRECIPICE 035 – WITH DIGITAL FIST & SNOWDROP | TRIPLICITY WARMUP | 28/04/15 | 8-10PM GMT

By | The Precipice | No Comments

Greetings thrillseekers,

Very long story short, in a relatively significant departure from what I usually do, I will be playing downtempo dubby stuff on the chill stage at Triplicity, in Exmoor this Friday.

In preparation for this, I am joined on tonight’s show by Snowdrop, who will be playing slightly squelchier stuff later in the weekend on the same stage.

Snowdrop has appeared on this show before in one of her other guises, as xoomi on Episode 23, and has her own show over here, New Moon Grooves, keeping in tune with the lunar cycle. Check it out.

While predominantly trance-based, the Triplicity lineup has quite a bit of diversity now, and the chill stage alone is looking to be really quite impressive. I believe there are still last-minute tickets available.

Without further ado, here’s the tracklisting:

My bit:

Shpongle – Shpongle Falls
Quanta – Quazilimbo (Akasha remix)
Dubsahara – Harmonic Density (Rubicon mix)
Greg Hunter – Siliconectar v3
Androcell – Atmos-Spheres
Tripswitch – Roll Your Own
Dubsahara – Amaroq

Snowdrop’s bit:

Androcell – Sacred Encounter
Temple Step Project – I Alone (Kaminanda Remix)
Electrypnose – Sunny Heart (Far Mozaic Remix)
Bird of Prey – The First Step
Atman Construct – Parallax View (SIXIS Remix)
Quanta – Connecting Patterns
Drumspyder – Caduceus
Kuba – Bringing It All Back Home
Unknown Reality – Water Part II
Desert Dwellers – Shiva Nataraj (Drumspyder Remix)
Halfred – Snowons

Epilogue from me:

Shpongle – The Herb Garden

We will be back again very soon with Epomeni Stasi from Athens for some more deep techno, followed by the return of both Mystery Selector and Prome from the previous two shows.

Thank you for your continuing support.

THE PRECIPICE 034 – WITH DIGITAL FIST, ELLARR & PROME | 14/04/15 | 8-10PM GMT

By | The Precipice | No Comments

 

rp_digital_fist_precipice_itunes_b1-585x585.png

Evening all,

Transcontinental drum&bass from the bowels respectively of Andover, UK and Wellington, New Zealand tonight.

Slightly unusual show here, on account of having two guests in. I’ve done this deliberately as I only had a short guest mix from my New Zealander colleague eLLaRR, but it would work perfectly as a nice liquidy intro before repeat-visitor Prome’s moodier stuff.

eLLaRR is originally from Portsmouth but successfully moved to the other side of the planet a couple of years ago and is now a regular on Wellington, New Zealand’s Fast Radio 1.

Prome has appeared here before, on episode 26 of The Precipice, and will be back again in on May 26th, as this was actually the first half of a two hour mix he’s provided me with. I’m reliably informed he’s working on some new productions as well, as we speak. More on that, later.

Tonight’s tracklisting:

eLLaRR’s bit.

Tokyo Prose (Feat. Lenzman & Fox) – Won’t Let Me Go –

Etherwood (Feat. Rocky NTI) – Spoken (S.P.Y Remix)

Maduk & ChampionLove Like This
S.P.Y – Stardust

Lenzman – Always
Camo & Crooked – All Night (Etherwood Remix)
Hybrid Minds – Felicity
Nymfo – Brain Stimulation
Technimatic – Perseverence (VIP)
Gorgon City – Ready for your Love (Etherwood Remix)
Tokyo Prose – Small Gains
Anushka – Never Can Decide (Ivy Lab Remix)

K-Tee & Friction – Overtime (Spectrasoul remix)

THE PRECIPICE 033 – WITH DIGITAL FIST & MYSTERY SELECTOR | 31/03/15 | 8-10PM GMT

By | The Precipice | No Comments

mysteryselector

Greetings, featherless bipeds.

We’re back again for more techno, this time with Brighton’s eclectic Mystery Selector. (Main website here). We actually met, only last week at Textured Silence, the night he’s currently promoting at a very nice little underground bar up there, but he seems like a top bloke and I enjoyed what he was playing, so here we are. We’ll be having him back to play some psy-dub soon, as well. :)

He describes his stylistic tendencies thus:

The music I play spans many genres but can loosely be split into two categories: psychedelic dub, glitch and trip-hop fused with world beats for warm-up slots, after-parties and bar/lounge events; and minimal/progressive techno and trance for club nights, often including live or tribal elements such as ska, reggae, celtic or other roots music. I’ve refined my playlist over the years to create a distinctive sound; recognisable across many genres which can be adapted to suit particular events and audiences.

If you happen to be in the area on April 18th, pop along to the Textured Silence at Brunswick Cellar Bar in Hove (BN3 1JL). (The May 16th show mentioned in the recording has been temporarily postponed).

Furthermore, there’s also the Sunday chill sessions at the same venue, on 26th Apr with Mystery Selector, Omnebula & Koji Maru, for more downtempo dubbiness. I won’t mention all his other gigs as there’s a long list of them and they’re all on the websites I’ve linked to. :)

We’ve also got a guest mix in hand from Textured Silence resident, Epomeni_Stasi, who’s been doing his thing out in Athens for some considerable time and may be the only person I’ve ever met besides myself who plays dub techno. More on that, soon…

I’ve opened up with some of my usual dark haunting techno, after which Mystery Selector takes it down a more quirky route, followed by my semi-traditional “something different” – in this case a reminder that I’ll be playing on the chill stage at Triplicity in Exmoor, on the May bank holiday weekend. Lots of love in the chat, as is often the case. :)

Tonight’s tracklisting is as follows:

My bit:

Polar Inertia – Black Sun
Claudio PRC – Kar
Efdemin – Night Train
Efdemin – Drop Frame
Stella – Office & Store (Efdemin remix)
Sigha – Over The Edge (Shifted remix)
Mauro Picotto – Cold Blood (Cari Lekebusch remix)
Yan Cook – Bell
Woo York – Abandoned City (Deepbass & Ness remix)
Deepbass & Ness – Portal
Jeroen Search – Earth

Mystery Selector’s bit:

Pallida – Random Moves
Giuliano Rodrigues – Translucent (original)
Chaim – Chicken Kiev
Colour – LSD
Little Thoughts – Tripping Balls
Polysick – Daydream
Nikroma – Memioplasm
Joachim Pastor – Md Ma
Dataura – Throbble
Mark Dekoda – Bionic Hazard
Brujo’s Bowl – Chronic Funkdelity
Afterdubbings:

Quanta – Quazilimbo (Akasha remix)

Thanks again for your support. See you in a fortnight.

THE PRECIPICE 032 – WITH DIGITAL FIST & BUSHBY | 03/03/15 | 8-10PM GMT

By | News, The Precipice | No Comments

digitaldistortions.png

Evening all,

Back in session again with Bushby. Leeds-based filth wizard, head of exceptional glitchy electro-breaks label, Digital Distortions, and fellow cat lover, he was previously featured on Episode 12 of The Precipice where we were both in more angry and complex mode… this time, it’s still breakbeat but much more generally progressive this time. Some interesting tunes in here. Check it out.

His increasingly diverse Brawlcast can be found here. Bushby used to be my go-to guy for dark and complex stuff, a few years ago. I don’t have a lot more to say except that his label was quite a strong influence on me.

I started off with a couple of tunes from a mix I recorded on a MiniDisc which I just found on top of my wardrobe. Truthfully, I can’t remember the names of all of them. Then we’ve got Bushby’s bit, followed by a handful of mostly quite old breaks tracks from me.

Tonight’s tracklisting:

Some old stuff from me

*** will get back to you ***

Bushby’s bit

Tarrantella - Saturn (Quivver Remix) [Whoop!]

Dan F - Interceptor [Disuye]
John Creamer & Stephane K ft. Oliver Twisted - I Love You (Hybrid's Claustrophobic Remix) [Acetate Ltd]
Cotton Club - Nu Jack 2K (Koma & Bones Vs. Proteus 'Battle Cry' Remix) [Dorigen Music]
Sasha - Bloodlock (Wrecked Angle Remix)

Greetings all,

Another selection of breaks, techno and other stuff (*cough* prog-psy) I recorded while at a house party in London at some stupid time in the morning.

Not a lot to say, except that I’ve got a new microphone due in the post, and we’ve got a number of guests coming up including but not limited to, Manchester/Leeds crew Antidote, and Pastafoureyes on the dnb/glitch-hop tip; New Zealand’s Ellarr doing more jazzy/liquid dnb, and the return of Digital Distortions’ Bushby with some excellent breakbeat.

Lots of love in the chatroom once again, for tonight’s show.

This is probably as good a time as any to mention I’m playing on the chill stage at Triplicity, a small-medium sized psytrance festival which has recently relocated to Exmoor. Not sure which night I’m on yet, but I’m planning to bang out some trip-hop, ambient psy-dub and for want of a better description, “ethnic downtempo” stuff.

Thanks as always, for coming along.

Greetings, featherless bipeds.

I don’t have a huge amount to say about this one. You’ll note there was no episode 027. A glitch in the matrix or something.

This is just a straight up load of my favourite techno, with a brief prog-psy interlude, veering off down towards breaks at the end. It was a recording from a party, hence the top/tail treatment.

THE PRECIPICE 026 – WITH DIGITAL FIST & PROME | 16/09/14 | 8-10PM GMT

By | The Precipice | No Comments

10956080_4999526681528_223471629_n

Dear listeners,

Apologies for the incredibly late upload. Tonight’s show features some deep and complex drum&bass from Andover’s elder statesman of jungle, Prome, with a somewhat scattershot intro from myself.

In his own words:

Prome aka Pete Coombs from Andover, grew up with street music at the early age of 9, with his love for electronic beats in the form of 80’s Electro.

As the early Electro sound phased out & formed more into Hip Hop, he missed the electronic instrumental side of things. But it was only a matter of time before the Chicago House sound launched, which then triggered the Detroit Techno scene in full flow shortly after.

Into the nineties & the Belgian Techno scene hits the floors & then so Jungle Techno was born, thus bringing us into drum & bass – & it is here that Prome has stayed solid to the more mature & deeper sub genres.

Prome will drop anything from the deeper rollin sounds of Calibre, to the more moodier darker edge of Pessimist. Classics from the Headz camp & broken breaks from Paradox.

Tonight’s tracklisting:

My bit:

Skeptical – Sphere
Commix – Life We Live
Blackstreet – No Diggity (Aphrodite full vocal remix)
