Welcome to another electro-acoustic audio journey with your friend DJ Playaduster!

Plug in, turn on, tune out and let yourself ride on the rhythms of life…….shifting sands, bushmen rituals, broken appliances, alien jazz clubs, footsteps, dream drums, laser battles, Tibetan monks: welcome to music from the New Funk Millennium.

Subterranean Homesick Blues : Dreamstep II

121-subterranean
Mixed by DJ Playaduster, December 2012

A strange and slightly unsettling journey through bass & space music past and present, intuitively guided by DJ Playaduster in the dark heart of winter. This is a weird one, folks, where Playaduster followed the muse wherever she wandered, accepting her guidance and translating the cosmic downloads in to beats, bass and sideways swerves. Not for casual listening, but rewarding if you want to buy the ticket and take the ride!



Pantha du Prince "Walden 2"
Scuba "Lights Out"
Burial + Four Tet + Thom Yorke "Mirror"
Pantha du Prince "Saturn Strobe"
Four Tet Fabriclive 59 set (edit)
Miles Davis "Billy Preston" (Bill Laswell reconstruction)
Grateful Dead "Dark Star"
Pink Floyd "Fearless"
Phaeleh "Soulfunk"
SexyTime "Inamorata"
The xx "Angels" (Shadow Child Unofficial VIP remix)
Ricardo Villalobos medley
Osulande "Pheramones"
Pantha du Prince "Mad Rush Organ Mix > Seeds of Sleep"

Lost Track of Time



dBMcast #114: Lost Track of Time (320 kbps)
Mixed by
DJ Playaduster, October 2012

More often than not, DJ Playaduster's dBMcasts choose a musical genre and explore the various electronic permutations of that vibe over an hour-and-a-half. In this new mix, the genres are blended, one flowing in to the next, an undulating river of blending sounds and spirits. This is a sonic exploration that goes off the map, a journey through progressive grooves and forward-leaning beats: Bass Chakra Therapy alongside deep house, Gypsy whomp vs. ambient spacestep, fractured glitchhop rubbing up against pop music remixes. Playaduster was guided by intuition on this excursion and the results are exquisitely interesting, both for a headphones chill-out session or a dance floor adventure.

We might also note that at the heart of this mix is a long cut from Pachanga Boys entitled "Time" — a bit of an unusual choice for DJ Playaduster. This was the beat that Robot Heart
often played to meet and greet the first rays of the rising sun out on the playa, so it is packed with meaning and memory for many of us RH junkies at Burning Man 2012!



Other artists include Flying Lotus * Ricardo Villalobos * Nico Luminouos * Jupit3r * SBTRKT * Radiohead * Four Tet * The Polish Ambassador * Sugarpill * Nicholas Jaar * GRiZ * Beats Antique * Filastine * JoBOT //

Subconscious Shapeshifter Swarm



A subsonic sacred bass exploration with
DJ Playaduster channeling a night at Burning Man. Imagine traveling between several different soundscapes late one night in Black Rock City: your first stop features whomp-fusion, glitch-hop and luscious low-end bass jamz to start the party. But then you wander a couple doors down the Esplanade to discover a camp spinning psychedelic progressive house and you get lost there for what seems like an eternity of booty-shaking. Robot Heart rolls by and draws you deeper out in to the open playa for a serving of dark and dubby disco-trance music. Mmmmmmm, feels so good! Right about the moment you suspect that you are going to turn in to a puddle of goo from dancing to such elastic, nerfy beats, a random art car -- perhaps a golf cart made up as a glowfish, or a pulsating fuzzy UFO -- drives by blaring Hendrix and the rawness and realness of his guitar pulls you back to corporeal form. Out at the trash fence, you stumble upon Tipper spinning an early morning set full of neuron-splintering sounds and feel your DNA literally being reprogrammed…. almost sunrise!

All of these various styles and genre-mutations sound s
o good to your ears -- they move your body hypnotically, swarm your subsconscious with shapeshifters and create an epic night of dancing beneath the broad dome of stars with the beautiful freaks of BRC!



Featuring Kaminanda / David Starfire / Beats Antique / ill.gates / Glitch Mob / R/D / Bassnecter / Osunlande / Tanner Ross / Round Three / Kassem Mosse / Behrouz / Jimi Hendrix (?!?) / Tipper/ more...

DJ subRoutine live set at the Root Society, Burning Man 2009



After those last two holiday-themed podcasts released here on dBM, it's time to get dirrrty again. Vancouver BC's DJ subRoutine provides us over 80 minutes of smoothly-blended progressive house from his live set in the Morpheus Dome at the Root Society, Burning Man 2009. We like to keep the sounds mixed up and unpredicatable here at dBM and hope this set hits you right.
