Liveblogging! Commentary for “ITDE” 7/26/08

Sweet Action filched on a promise to play local abstract electronics producer Chaos Kit‘s newest track, so I kicked off the show with it– not my normal thing, but not a bad beginning to this broadcast either. After that, straight into some heavy stuff from Ralf Wehowsky and Anla Courtis, on “Return of the Stone Spirits.” These two do some really good work together, and obviously play off one another’s strengths– RLW’s bizarre streak is a mile wide, and works perfectly alongside Courtis’ shepherding primitive tech back into the light.

Speaking of primitive tech– you should really see the computer we have here at Casa del WDBX. I think it is the world’s last all-wood PC, with the sap-based POS chip. Seriously, manatees get online quicker than this beast. Nevertheless, I’ve pushed on through to do some seriously lovely mixing tonight– more than one person will be quite upset if this broadcast doesn’t survive the recording process. Someday, Southern Illinois will enter the 20th century, and I’ll have a decent net connection… until then, it’s always a craps shoot as to whether there is a recording waiting for me when I return home.

I just noticed that local musician Ryan Oslance will be joining Ahleuchatistas soon. I know full well I was playing their stuff well before anyone in this area– according to my playlists, at least as early as April 2006– I’m thinking I may have to leverage this for a live set here at the station sometime!
