Podcast 88: n5md Label Sampler with Bitcrush

Oakland, CA might have a rep for grim crime statistics and intimidating sidewalks, but the city just a bridge toll away from S.F. also holds some very pretty aspects, and ambient IDM imprint n5md is one of the best.

Podcast 87: MUTEK_10 with Michel Pontbriand

In earlier days, a MUTEK showcase commonly involved a room of pasty guys standing still while endless bleeps and blips filled the air. And while we’d never contest the importance of that particular breed of electronic music (which remains the foundation of most MUTEK events), the festival has seen a considerable amount of growth and variety over the last decade, perhaps most evident in the lineup for this year’s annual Montreal festival.

Podcast 86: XLR8R Presents Kevin Saunderson

With his previously announced, two-disc remix retrospective release, History Elevate, about to drop and Detroit's annual Movement Festival less than two weeks away, one would assume Kevin Saunderson has little time to talk. Read more » 

Podcast 85: Kid606 - Megachurch Meltdown

Few artists can pack 47 tracks into an hour-long mix without it sounding forced and contrived.

Podcast 83: DNAE Beats - There's a Wormhole in My Bathroom

More future blapp is coming out of the Bay Area, this time from S.F.-based producer DNAE Beats. His latest promo mix, There's a Wormhole in My Bathroom, will drop shortly, but in the meantime, he's prepped this exclusive mashup of tracks off the new release. Worms being creatures who live in deep, dark places, it's appropriate that the mix is packed end-to-end with bass-heavy dubstep and hip-hop tracks custom-made for all things low-end.

Podcast 82: East Bay to Back Bay

You may have surmised, from the title of this mix, that Boy in Static's contribution to the XLR8R Podcast has a little something to do with the Bay Area, but the S.F.-based indie-pop duo of Alexander Chen and Kenji Ross was nice enough to pass along a few words on each track in East Bay to Back Bay. "Kenji and I have been fortunate to become friends with some very talented folks over the past few years," explains Chen. "There's a personal story behind each track here."
