Trancelike State 049701 – Stardate 79.30.40

March 11, 2019 – 10:35 pm

Here’s the ninth in the Trancelike State series (others), my electronica mix show from college. This episode kicks off with an experimental track I made in my dorm room using, I believe, Cakewalk. I was pretty proud of reversing the certain frogs (that were famous at the time) to make them the Dubwiser frogs. Then I layered a bunch slowed down sounds tweaking them slowly into oblivion. Not the greatest thing I ever made, but a curious little rarity.

This is a nice, dark episode.

Tracklist after the jump.

(As a reminder to explain my goofy show titling/dating convention: the episode number of 049701 can be translated pretty simply: April 1997, first mix of the month. The “star date” was just my stupid way of designating specifically when the mix was done by writing the date backwards (so 79.30.40 is April 3, 1997). The 9th through 12th episodes weren’t stardated, but the estimate I’ve made should be accurate.)

Flush 7

February 14, 2019 – 12:11 pm

Flush had a series of tapes recorded in the mid-80s labeled simply with a number. This one is number 7 in that set and features electro and mid-80s hip-hop from Shante, Mantronix, and Kurtis Blow.

Most of these recordings likely came from Power 99 or WDAS in Philly and feature early hip-hop and electro.
