DVNT – Simpering Gossip recorded for Terminal Radio (Transmission Four)
Early into 2013 I recorded a fifteen minute mix for the Terminal Radio mix series and radio show that forms part of a larger super quadrant meta-brain two hour session taking in a further 7 selectors.
That full show can be found here. It was originally broadcast 22/02/2013. I had intended to post it up here sooner, but here we are 2 months later. Oops.
The monthly transmission broadcast Terminal Radio is an offshoot of the Terminal Window release series – a music project from the Future Sound of London fan community at the FSOLboard. Artists were invited to contribute tracks and collaborations to the releases. The mixes so far have been fantastic.
Members who made tracks for the Terminal Window series and general fans of FSOL and ambient music were invited to contribute a 15 [minute] mix. Eight of these were collected and mixed together in a 2 hour trip. Each volume will feature eight more alternate universes converging into one super quadrant meta-brain.
My ‘Simpering Gossip‘ mix is a packed 26 track offering of diverse, deep flow electronics, covering instrumental hip-hop, abrasiveness technoid, acid, jungle sub, 60s pop and a few other surprises along the way. It has more than a nod to those early (and timeless) FSOL BBC Radio 1 Essential Mixes the duo of Garry Cobain and Brian Dougans compiled in the 90s.
As you’d expect, it comes with a Darkfloor slant: three exclusive tracks commissioned and produced solely for Simpering Gossip – from Vacated, Ontal and Benefactor. Each delivered stunning, standout work that blew me away when I heard them.
