Greg Belson – Time Less
An infrequent broadcast hosted by DJ Greg Belson, focusing on the beatscapes of 90’s club culture. Tracks that were forward thinking in production techniques, ground breaking in textures and time signatures but yet often forgotten. With the 2000’s came the advent of more powerful computers, easier accessibility to software and an ease to create at home; beatmakers of the 90’s had to either adapt or fall by the wayside. We’ll be unearthing some of the cream of the crop, that still relied on outboard gear, physical mixing desks and insane wired up patch bays to get the job done. With it came a certain warmth, particularly when it was arguably the last bastion of dance music to promote, press and present their music solely onto vinyl….it’s within these grooves that we’d like to celebrate with you a time in beat making. Join us as we spin the original format of what truly was a ‘Time-Less’ age.
4:00pm – 6:00pm

Many of the British post-punk bands were influenced by reggae music & it’s recording techniques, and that experimental spark is the nucleus of the show.
