G-Synth Era. Taking old school synthy 80’s to 90’s Pop/R&B, adding a dash of glitch hop and beats and we get this week’s dirtyfied version of a regular radio station. About half of the tracks in this session are ones that I tried incorporating into previous podcasts with no luck. Thankfully make sense together here. Especially the tracks with the quirky titles.

“Marty! You’ve got to come back with me…back to the future!” We’re taking an odd detour for this week’s podcast, with one of my pretend radio station shows. If I ever did have a chance to become a radio DJ, this would be my music of choice, dirtyfied of course. I’ve noticed on the rare occasions that I have the regular radio on, some channels for example, easy listening, would have music from the last 30 to 40 years mixed in with some newer stuff (compared to stations that only play music of certain eras). My original concept was to mix and match “ancient” electronica 😛 with its more current incarnations…the Johnny Jewels, Kavinskys, Ladytrons with the older “waves” although this podcast leaned heavier towards the more post-punk, early electronic alternative spectrum. Next time I make one of these will have more Synth-Pop and even Italo included.

Children of the Wave:

01. Inga Copeland – Trample
02. Cold Cave – Heavenly Metals
03. Deux – Game & Performance
04. Gary Allen – Oops, It’s An Accident
05. A.R.E. Weapons – Mr. Creature
06. A Sudden Way – Jane’s Third Party
07. John Maus – No Title (Molly)
08. Kebab – Life It’s A Joke
09. OTO – Anyway
10. Brotman & Short – Eastlands
11. Das Kabinette – The Cabinet
12. Rational Youth – Saturdays in Silesia (12″ mix)
13. Lower Dens – Brains (Trentmoller Remix)
14. Jozif feat. Zeska – Musak (Jozif’s MOG Version)
15. Cosmetics – Black Leather Gloves
16. Parallels – Dry Blood

This is my Nicholas Winding Refn / Drive inspired soundscape/soundtrackish session. But I also had an idea of doing another halfstep dnb mix, so this session ended up switching on and off between those two ideas. This is To Live & Die In L.A., Black Moon Rising and Drive accidentally mashed in with D Bridge/Instra:Mental’s Autonomic. I managed to sneak in borndirty’s own AVid/Mental Health Consumer‘s track from the borndirty.org compilation Electric Eye On You in there too.

tracklist:

01. Mohn – Saturn

Title Sequence

02. Bot Cipryan – Astral Breeze (Ambient Mix)
03. Mental Health Consumer – Late Afternoon Last November
04. Croms – Invisible Cities
05. D Bridge – City Of Lonely Runaways

Synthsational! A nearly 2 hour session of mostly synthy pop dance choonage. I started out trying to redo an old mix (first 3 tracks) before it turned into a full blown cheddar smorgasbord. Reminds me of my childhood summers (it’s summer in some parts of the world). May do a more palatable balearic-ish summer mix later on. This is for the love of 80’s Giorgio Moroder, Vince Clarke, Stock/Aitken/Waterman, some hints of Italo Disco and 90s pop dance/NRG.

Part 1 of 2 Halloween Special. This is the Soundtrack edition. Still in that same, 80’s to 90’s era Euro-Suspense Thriller mode, with some old-school spooky synthesizer sounds to boot (this was originally a much longer recording that had more electro / zombie sounding elements, and initially titled Zombie Breakdance Apocalypse). It becomes more of a dance mix in the last 3rd of the session.

I figured I’d try something less mixed and more eclectic. Current artists with a very 80’s synth vibe, 80’s Italo dance inspired sounds, actual 80’s Italo, some 90’s synth pop, some slightly Indie with heavy synth sounds, and even drum and bass…also synth heavy.

synthetic yesterdays:

01. Parallels – Reservoir (Demo Version)
02. Sally Shapiro – I’ll Be By Your Side (Extended Club Mix)
03. Anoraak – Nightdrive With You (Fear Of Tigers Remix)
04. Steve Allen – Message Of Love
05. Beloved – Sweet Harmony
06. Pet Shop Boys – A New Life
07. Futurecop! – Eyes Like The Ocean
