'THE GREENROOM' (NOVEMBER 16): ADVECTION MUSIC "PRODUCER SERIES" Feature Mix
Another very special program this session as I shed light on the ADVECTION MUSIC imprint on the eve of their epic 'AM PRODUCER' series launch. Culled from the deep, atmospheric offerings of artists THE OUTERWORLD, BASS'FLO, and NEMANOE, the sprawling, 3-CD set's finest moments will be featured during the broadcast. Tune in!!
Paying homage to the classic 'GOOD LOOKING' style producer series, ADVECTION MUSIC's 'AM PRODUCER' albums feature the music of UK's BASS'FLO, Armenia's NEMANOE, and the conjoined union of both producers under their newly-formed guise as THE OUTERWORLD. Inspired over the years by the refined sounds of GLR, COVERT OPERATIONS, CAMINO BLUE, ARCTIC and OUTSIDER MUSIC, the prolific pair of producers define the sound and direction of ADVECTION MUSIC's future. Each with an impressive catalogue of released and forthcoming music, the 'AM PRODUCER' series spotlights both artists' versatility and creative focus within the studio realm. Watch out for more big moves from the ADVECTION MUSIC camp as we head into 2012 and beyond.

MulchFactory's 'JUICE!' Night returns to Oregon
After a very successful string of memorable shows at its previous home THE GROVE in beautiful BEND, OREGON, one of Stateside's finest nights: 'JUICE!' (brought to you by MulchFactory Presents...) has returned from a few years' hiatus and found its new residency at THE WHISKEY BAR in downtown PORTLAND.

So after a bit of time off to concentrate on her family and much-lauded MULCHDESIGN graphic solutions business, MULCHFACTOR aka CHEMYNNE PERLINGIERI has recently re-launched the musically-refined, deeper DRUM+BASS 'JUICE!' night with its well-received kick-off show in AUGUST, 2011 (which featured UK's THE INSIDERS alongside Stateside's best RANDOM MOVEMENT and CALCULON).
For its next event, 'JUICE!' keeps things running on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22 with prolific CHICAGO producer/DJ STUNNA alongside TELLURIC RECORDINGS' NYC-based head honcho PLACE 42 and local PDX talent CODENAME for a night of exclusive music and positive vibes...
Taking place at one of PORTLAND's finest venues for electronic music THE WHISKEY BAR (renown for its great soundsystem, ample dancefloor space, full bar and friendly staff), the evening will be accented by tasty treats provided by BEND's own JEM RAW CHOCOLATE, giving this special evening an added sweet bonus.

RADIATA Exclusive All-Originals Mix for The Greenroom: August 31, 2011
For my final show of August 2011, I'm pleased and excited to air an exclusive guest mix from one of CHICAGO's stalwart figures in the Drum+Bass scene: RADIATA. Since entering the DJ arena back in 1995, this multi-faceted artist has lent his hand as a tireless promoter, booking agent and burgeoning producer. With support of his music from some global top players (most recently, his deadly track "THE SWAMP" can be heard on GRIDLOK's newest mix 'CARMAGEDDON'), for this session, RADIATA drops a unique set of ALL-ORIGINAL productions. Many of the tracks are world debuts on-air, and he'll give a taste of what the future holds for his own ADAPTER AUDIO imprint.

STUNNA Remix of MORTEM's "STRATOS" Hits Vinyl Shelves
Hot off the press from the INFLUENZA MEDIA LIMITED label aka IM:Ltd, and just in time for the summer months, STUNNA returns with his own take on the massive slice of minimal deepness that is MORTEM's "STRATOS." Taking a more rolling approach than the original's engagingly moody atmosphere, STUNNA cranks out an infectious groove that stays true to the original's elements but then takes things a step further with added layers of instrumentation. Featuring worldwide support from DOC SCOTT, DJ LEE and many other top names, the vinyl is now available and includes the original, the STUNNA remix, and another MORTEM original: "SYNCHRONICITY."
For a preview of the STUNNA remix, listen here:

SABLE GRAY Gives Away 'OBSOLETE' Free Double Album
BOSTON's SABLE GRAY, one of my personal favorite producers and all-around great guy, has recently called it quits from the DRUM+BASS game and has graciously given away the stellar DOUBLE LP-length 'OBSOLETE' collection of unsigned work from the past few years. With global support from the legendary HOSPITAL RECORDS camp and past releases on labels such as GERMANY's BASSWERK, you're in for a treat with this generous helping of originals, collaborations and some bootleg action to round out the package.
* To DOWNLOAD High-Quality MP3s or Lossless files, visit the page: •• HERE ••
Here are a few words directly from SABLE GRAY about this project.......
"So if you ever wanted one of my tunes, but I wouldn’t send it to you because some dumb-ass label or another was sitting on it or stringing me along, that tune is probably in here. This one’s for the anoraks. Enjoy.
The One That Got Away (2009)
Perfect Storm (2008)
Phoenix Landing (2009)
Take Me (2007)
Just To Have You (2007)
808 Bardot (2010)
Bottom of the Bottle (2009)
Interference Pattern (2010)
Baby, Lover, Darling (feat. Sol:ID) (2009)
Can’t Get Enough (2006)
January Dub (2005)
109 Miles to Chicago (2008)
Like A Woman (2006)
Beyond the Clouds (2005)
Midnight Kiss (2009)
One More Night (2007)
Wave Goodbye (2007)
Your Love (2007)
3 Can Win (for J Dilla) (2008)
Why release it now? Why give it away?
First and foremost, I was sick of all of this ‘unfinished’ music hanging over my head. So I woke up one day and decided that it was finished. All of it. No more editing. No more second guessing. No more endless tweaking to try to get that one label to pay attention (or to appease my own perfectionism). Also, I’m absolutely positive there is music on here that nobody except me has ever heard one second of. So here it is, with all of its blemishes. With its poor EQ choices, and weak-ish snare drums. Its dancefloor tracks that will clear out dancefloors and sound better in headphones. Its weak beats and occasionally boring drops. It’s all yours! I’m tired of thinking about it, and how (and if) I could have made it better. But actually, now that I’ve compiled all of it and taken a step back, I think there’s some pretty good stuff here. Some of it is extremely polished, some of it is very raw and bare-bones. But it all kind of makes sense together. Listening through the really raw, unfinished bits to master them reminded me of how I first found this weird little raw and unfinished sounding genre, and how it changed my perception of music forever. So please don’t tell me about the distortion on the left channel of blah blah blah and how it would sound better in “Dubly.” I’m not fucking listening to you.
Secondly, I’m retiring the Sable Gray name, so this double LP is a sort of final statement. Over the past year, I’ve already drifted outside of the drum & bass scene to pursue other musical and personal directions, and I think it’s (mostly) permanent. Sable Gray had a pretty good run for a while there. I got to play in some great venues, on some great systems, with some great friends. The tunes on Obsolete (well, the ones I actually sent to people) had support from some great DJs all over the world, which was amazing. My music started popping up in interesting places, like on BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM in the UK. so thank you to each and every DJ and listener that supported my music. It’s been amazing being a small part of this worldwide, grassroots culture that is drum & bass. And a special thank you to Matt & Terravita, Lenore & Bill and the whole Elements crew, the Statesmen, Place 42 at Telluric, TGM and Basswerk, Ross T & Sydney at Trainspotters, Dave Prism, C-Dubz & my Bassic friends, Seismic, DJ DB & Secret Night of Science, Random Movement, The Ghost, Stunna, Overfiend and the whole Bassdrive crew. And all of you.
Till next time …
