Two sundays ago, I guest DJ’ed with my buddy Jacob Gorchov on East Village Radio’s Minimal Wave show. It was a dancier show and we had a blast in the booth (hence why you can’t hear us with the booth volume so loud). I’m including the mp3s with this post of the 19 songs I played. Please note that “Decidedly So” by Further Reductions was indeed played and can be heard in the stream, I just missed logging it in with the booth being a bit crowded. You can buy their “Decidedly So/Not Unknown” 7″ here from Captured Tracks or buy it at Heaven Street Records in Brooklyn, like I did.  If you are reading this via feed, you’ll have to read this post on the site in order to download all 19 songs listed below.

There are 70 billion people out there. Where are they hiding?

This post was meant to be posted in September but alas, no time can render starting posts useless… until now.

Cabaret Voltaire goes without explanation, I recurrently get obsessed with their “ethno-techno” single “Yashar” from 1982, released on Factory Records. There are several versions of “Yashar,” I’ve included my favorite with this post.  Lately I’ve been listening quite a lot to “Haiti” (my Motherland, go figure) off of The Crackdown, expect that track to be added to this post later.

Their ever engrossing track “Split Second Feeling” from 1981’s Red Mecca can be found on the Paramnesia mix from 2008.

Back in August (can’t believe it’s already NOVEMBER!) I made my friend Brent in Portland a mix for his birthday. Though having stayed up all night working on this 60 minute mixtape, I wasn’t too satisfied with the outcome of it. Thankfully it arrived in his hands two days later on his birthday, unscathed. Not thinking it was my best, I was relieved to hear how stoked he was on this hasty mix of songs. Now nearly three months later, steadily on rotation (saving my day at work!), I’ve decided to post it to the blog.

Rejoice!
