      #137
      On tonight’s show we head state-side to LA to present a session from Israel Vines.

      THE SHOWCASE
      Label owner of Borrowed Language, DJ and a rising talent in the studio – Vines is currently based in Los Angeles but hails from Michigan where like many who lived in the state home to Detroit, discovered techno through the sounds of the Belleville Three and Underground Resistance. Suitably impressed it wasn’t long after becoming enraptured by these sounds that Vines started DJing and would later be instrumental in the Lansing Real-ism event – hosting the sounds of Jay Denham, Robert Hood and Dan Bell.

      Stave - Tower9 (Israel Vines remix)
      soundcloud.com/israel-vines/stave-tower-9-israel-vines

      Like his contemporaries Surgeon and Rob Hall, Vines approach to DJing is diverse and cohesive – incorporating classics of house and techno with dubstep rhythms and bassweight. His Borrowed Language label reflects this open-minded aesthetic too – with the releases bridging between fractured technoid thud, heavy sub and dark room mechanics – proper Darkfloor vibes.

      Several of his ‘techno’ sets are available online to stream – his session for us tonight, some different again with what Vines describes as “an odd one…“. Expect dark ambient, abstract electronica textures.

      On the showcase this week, the beatsmith, Mad EP.

      HOUR 2: THE SHOWCASE// Mad EP is Matthew Peters, Iowa native (formerly based in New York, Chicago & Montreal) and recent UK transplant, with a vast and impressive background in electronic and classical music. Peters brings his talents to bear on Mad EP productions in such a way that the end results are diverse and unclassifiable, calmly defying expectations as he skims through every imaginable genre to reach the outer limits of a territory that is indisputably his own.

      Peters has been making his own music, variously described as electronic, alternative hip-hop, breakbeat, avant jazz, classical, sample-mania, and consistently unpredictable, for the past ten years in various contexts. His performances have been experienced in clubs, squats, restaurants, art galleries, concert halls, roof tops, radio studios, theatres, and festivals all over North America and Europe. He has also joined the Sub.FM ranks, and has a monthly show called “Tasty Cyanide Radio” – which goes beyond dubstep & garage and features all bass-centric music. In under a year, his playlists have been hailed as uniquely creative and innovative, and have a cult following to match.

      Peters is also the consummate collaborative musician. His releases are full of guest appearances by artists with a deep respect his unparalleled musicality: Shadow Huntaz, Puppetmastaz, Jason Forrest (aka Donna Summer), Math Head, Si Begg, Aaron Spectre, Mochipet, End, DJ Grandtheft, jazz trumpeter David Young, percussionist Bryce Beverlin II, and more. Venetian Snares & Leafcutter John both requested him to appear as a cellist on their albums and Peters is often in demand as a remixer, delivering unexpected, yet mind-blowing results.

    • FEB19: MANTIS RADIO / Datacrashrobot & Logical Disorder


      FRI 19/02/2010 from 18:00GMT on SWU RADIO
      LISTEN with iTunes . Winamp . Windows Media Player . Real Player
      CHAT SWU Radio Chatroom (IRC: wikkedwire.com . #swu)

      Coming up this week, not 1, but 2 showcase guest mixes from producers Datacrashrobot and Logical Disorder. Both have a slew of releases, both with a sizeable back catalogue of netlabel pieces. For our 55th show we’ve got an electro and IDM show down of forward thinking electronica.

      SHOWCASE MIX 1// Datacrashrobot is the electro/experimental project of one Sorin Paun. In early 2008, influenced by the classic electro sound, he started producing tracks which he describes as
      following a journey into the cold, mechanical, information overloaded mind of robots. The beat is drowned in dark ambiance or broken and twisted, overloaded with effects and glitches creating a state of malfunction and collapse.

      LINKS// Datacrashrobot . Datacrashrobot on Soundcloud

      SHOWCASE MIX 2// Logical Disorder is the name of the therapy that Javier Barrero use to balance his sinusoidal sense of duty. He develops his sounds focusing on ambient and post industrialism, remembering as he puts it
      pop phrases and sometimes epic funeral melodies.

    • TODAY: MANTIS RADIO + SUBEENA (PLANET MU)


      FRI 02/04/2010 from 18:00GMT
      LISTEN with SWU RADIO / CHAT (IRC: wikkedwire.com . #swu)

      This week, Subeena is up in the showcase guest spot.

      HOUR 2 / the SHOWCASE
      Subeena is 24 years old producer Sabina Plamenova, originally from Italy via Germany with Bulgarian roots, now based in London where she studies a Music and Media degree.

      Subeena was included in a special feature dedicated to women in electronic music called “X chromosome” by Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC Radio 1, where she showcased her own special sound on the airwaves amongst other producers such as Ahu, Vaccine, Cooly G, Ikonika and more.

      Her productions have also had wide support amongst internationally renowned producers such as Skream, Boxcutter, Vaccine, Mrs Jynx, Jay Scarlett, Mike Slott, Tes La Rok, Dave Q from Dub War and many more.

      Her work was initially mainly included in the “dubstep” niche, however it has quickly evolved and has become more diverse, crossing over various “electronic music” genres but at the same time not losing that distinct sound in which Subeena began experimenting with.

      She runs a monthly 2 hour radio show on Sub.Fm called ‘Outland’ which includes guest mixes from producers from across the globe.

      Sabina took part at the latest Red Bull Music Academy held in Barcelona in autumn 2008, where she collaborated with artists such as UK singer-songwriter Jamie Woon, Mexican producer Pepepe and MC and producer Violet who she also included in her new EP, and with studio team Osborne and Om Mas Keith (Sa-Ra).

      The collaboration with Jamie Woon and Om ‘Mas Keith– “Solidify” is included in the Various Assets CD that the Academy releases every year and that features the productions made during the two Terms; it was also released on Planet Mu Records in October ’09.

      She has been featured on one of the past editions of the free DVD “Slices” together with producer Dot, who she has been co-running her own record label ‘Imminent Recordings’ (formerly known as ‘Immigrant Recordings’) for a year and a half.

      The Sonic Miefiled, October ‘09
      “Subeena makes some beautiful music that will tempt techno and house heads as well as the dubstep crew the way she uses melody to create a spaced out psychadlic yet light atmosphere on these tracks is a unique and welcom take on the sound. Add to that the tallents of her colaberators this is one solid 12” for Planet Mu.”

      John Eden, Uncarved.org, Woofah Magazine, Jan ‘09
      “Subeena knows that you don’t have to smack someone in the face to make an impact - everything here is in the right place at the right time.”

      The Super Super Magazine, March ‘09

      “Subeena hits us with another heavyweight banger in the shape of Boksd – which surely has to be a contender for release of the year.”

      hour 2 / the SHOWCASE
      Subeena is 24 years old producer Sabina Plamenova, originally from Italy via Germany with Bulgarian roots, now based in London where she studies a Music and Media degree.

      Subeena was included in a special feature dedicated to women in electronic music called “X chromosome” by Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC Radio 1, where she showcased her own special sound on the airwaves amongst other producers such as Ahu, Vaccine, Cooly G, Ikonika and more.

      Her productions have also had wide support amongst internationally renowned producers such as Skream, Boxcutter, Vaccine, Mrs Jynx, Jay Scarlett, Mike Slott, Tes La Rok, Dave Q from Dub War and many more.

      Her work was initially mainly included in the “dubstep” niche, however it has quickly evolved and has become more diverse, crossing over various “electronic music” genres but at the same time not losing that distinct sound in which Subeena began experimenting with.

      She runs a monthly 2 hour radio show on Sub.Fm called ‘Outland’ which includes guest mixes from producers from across the globe.

      Sabina took part at the latest Red Bull Music Academy held in Barcelona in autumn 2008, where she collaborated with artists such as UK singer-songwriter Jamie Woon, Mexican producer Pepepe and MC and producer Violet who she also included in her new EP, and with studio team Osborne and Om Mas Keith (Sa-Ra).

      The collaboration with Jamie Woon and Om ‘Mas Keith– “Solidify” is included in the Various Assets CD that the Academy releases every year and that features the productions made during the two Terms; it was also released on Planet Mu Records in October ’09.

      She has been featured on one of the past editions of the free DVD “Slices” together with producer Dot, who she has been co-running her own record label ‘Imminent Recordings’ (formerly known as ‘Immigrant Recordings’) for a year and a half.

      The Sonic Miefiled, October ‘09
      “Subeena makes some beautiful music that will tempt techno and house heads as well as the dubstep crew the way she uses melody to create a spaced out psychadlic yet light atmosphere on these tracks is a unique and welcom take on the sound. Add to that the tallents of her colaberators this is one solid 12” for Planet Mu.”

      John Eden, Uncarved.org, Woofah Magazine, Jan ‘09
      “Subeena knows that you don’t have to smack someone in the face to make an impact - everything here is in the right place at the right time.”

      The Super Super Magazine, March ‘09
      “Subeena hits us with another heavyweight banger in the shape of Boksd – which surely has to be a contender for release of the year.”

      In for the showcase mix this week, SmashBack.

      hour 2 / the SHOWCASE
      SmashBack spent his teenage years in North London training his ears to the evolving sounds of Jungle and House.

      His love for underground music led to further training in the art of music production, working various jobs to buy music equipment for his bedroom studio. It wasn’t until he left school when he got into DJing, starting a weekly residency at The Green Man pub in London’s West End. From there, he studied Music Technology at Uni & spent one of his summer breaks working at the now defunct techno institute Prime Distribution in West London. Whilst at Uni, he co-ran the legendary Bulldozer night in the seaside town of Scarborough. It was at least nights that SmashBack introduced the North East coast to Grime, Electro & Booty Bass.

      After moving to Manchester, SmashBack got involved with the early stages of the Electrode night, which was to introduce him to the residents of Alien Radio, who asked him to hop aboard and help co-run their night. Electrode now fills the monthly slot that Alien Radio use to grace.

      Alongside Paul Blackford, SmashBack co-runs the Bass Gun record label, releasing quality bass-heavy electro. Last year he released the album City Parks, which allowed him to move away from pure dancefloor bombs and develop and experiment with sound. A few weeks ago he released a joint EP with fellow Electrode member Teutonic Kaboom on the Bassgun imprint with some impressive remixes.

      Well here we are, at the big 60. Kicking it out on the showcase this week, Dead Sound. Be sure to listen in and let us know what tracks you're feeling through the chatroom.

      the SHOWCASE
      Paul Carroll is the man behind the Dead Sound project, a project involving underground techno/electro/dubstep and broken beat techno which he has been working on for the past year after putting his earlier alias ‘Digital Filth’ to rest and has quickly gained him support from top and varied artists including Dave Clarke, Surgeon, James Ruskin, Stormfield and Warlock.

      Paul has been playing out live with his own material at underground club nights around the UK most notably Atomic Jam at The Q Club (Nov 09). Paul has also played in top underground techno clubs in Germany that only the locals and people ‘in the know’ knew about including ‘The Villa’ in Berlin and ‘Tranz Hause’ in Hamburg where his hybrid of techno/electro beat went down a storm.

      Now concentrating on a new way of playing live using segments of loops from the mass of work produced, usually around 4 loops at a time, in the same vein as Richie Hawtin's DE9, but all original material. His live sets that are always different, crammed with diverse underground music. Paul's DJ sets include fast mixing, turntablism. and variety and now using Serato Scratch he's able to mix his down material in the same vein as DJing, but with the originality of a live set.

      listen SWU RADIO // CHAT (irc: wikkedwire.com . #swu) // DARKFLOOR

      We're back and this time we mean business. Coming up this week, Posthuman, live from the studio.

      the SHOWCASE
      Ahead of the new album, Syn Emergence (coming this summer on Balkan Vinyl) Posthuman are heading down to the MANTIS/darkfloor studios to give up a unique and exclusive live performance.

      Posthuman is cousins Richard Bevan and Joshu Doherty. Based in Edinburgh, Scotland and London, England.

      Their style is unrestricted by genre moving from techno, electro, and breaks, to post-rock, IDM, and ambient. However, their overall signature sound is often dark, brooding and melancholic.

      Their debut release in 2000 was a series of hand made CDs simply called "Posthuman" (though better known by the colour of the card inserts - grey, black, blue and brown) which were sold at live shows and via Rough Trade and Smallfish Records in London. The duo then went on to host a number of parties in an abandoned underground train station in London between 2001 and 2004, and founded their own label Seed Records with which they released 3 albums and several other releases of their own and other artists material. They also were the first act on Manchester based electronica label Skam on their SMAK series.

      Doherty left Seed Records to help relaunch UK techno imprint B12 Records in 2006, and now runs London clubnight "I Love Acid". He also is a member of modern classical / electronica crossover outfit Digitonal, and rave / hardcore breaks duo AGT Rave Cru.

      Seed Records continues under the stewardship of Bevan and long time collaborator Bruce McClure, whose spoken word pieces feature extensively throughout Posthuman's output.

      Their debut release in 2000 was a series of hand made CDs simply called "Posthuman" (though better known by the colour of the card inserts - grey, black, blue and brown) which were sold at live shows and via Rough Trade and Smallfish Records in London. The duo then went on to host a number of parties in an abandoned underground train station in London between 2001 and 2004, and founded their own label Seed Records with which they released 3 albums and several other releases of their own and other artists material. They also were the first act on Manchester based electronica label Skam on their SMAK series.

      Doherty left Seed Records to help relaunch UK techno imprint B12 Records in 2006, and now runs London clubnight "I Love Acid". He also is a member of modern classical / electronica crossover outfit Digitonal, and rave / hardcore breaks duo AGT Rave Cru.

      Seed Records continues under the stewardship of Bevan and long time collaborator Bruce McClure, whose spoken word pieces feature extensively throughout Posthuman's output.
