Jimmy Tamborello w/guest Morkebla – Dying Songs
“Dying Songs” focuses on melancholic electronic music but isn’t limited to that. Sometimes it gets dark, sometimes I try to mix techno awkwardly, sometimes i get nostalgic… I like stuff that’s dreamy, ghostly, pretty and sad. I’ll try out new productions of my own, as well. I’m keeping it pretty open and we’ll see how it evolves.” – Jimmy

Dustin Wong – Why Did./? Yes, why did, why did?/.
Welcome to a brand new monthly program hosted by Dustin Wong:
The show will invite artists and musicians in for an improvisation session. This maybe with the host or it could be two random strangers with the host mediating the process. The first 5-15 minutes being, a discussion on how to approach the session. Do we discuss what key we want to start with, a theme, or just go all out free? After a 30 minute session, a post-discussion about the experience. Did it turn out the way we discussed in the beginning, what is the difference of measure from intention to execution, and what interesting interactions occurred and what kind of thoughts or feelings went through the players. The show will also be accompanied with four 15 minute mixes of music.

Induce – Dancing, Thinking, Loving, Listening
It all started with these words from Induce, “Bout to get on and play some weird stuff @dublab till about 4. Tune in!” Then the lightning split the sky and all the sounds from the dublab studio on this oblate spheroid called Planet Earth were pulled into the cosmos in a single beam of high lumen energy. From this newly elevated point they hit the universal prism of memory reflection and were split throughout the wide universe. We’re happy you got your radio attuned to Induce’s transmission. Whether you’re hearing this 2 billion years from now or simply right now we know you’ll enjoy the “weird stuff” being offered.
