samurai.fm is coming to an end...

After 10+ years of broadcasting it's the end of an era and samurai.fm is no longer sustainable. It's been a great honour to be one of the first underground broadcasting stations, starting in Tokyo in 2002. We apologise for the sad news but we cannot afford to keep it going despite having some great ideas of how to create a brand new cutting edge music platform.

The site will be going offline on December 31st 2014. Until then artists will be able to download their previously uploaded recordings, and you will still be able to listen to the shows as usual.

If any benefactors interested in funding a new site come forward then maybe we could get the music streaming again with fresh new technology, otherwise we will say sayonara and thank you for listening.

In the meantime, if you are feeling nostalgic you can leave your thoughts and comments on our Facebook page...


Nina Kraviz - Awakenings 2014

Nina Kraviz - Awakenings 2014

Nina Kraviz is a multi-talented Siberian force in techno as a DJ, vocalist and producer making her one of the most influential figures in the scene. She also arguably has the nicest smile in the industry.

She performs regularly around the world and we have here a hot recording of some exemplary rolling and grooving techno from earlier this year in Amsterdam.

Tale of Us are Berlin-based DJ and production partnership Karm and Matteo who are currently re-writing the rulebook for deeply moving, emotional electronic music. They were nominated as the #2 DJ in the world according to a recent RA poll.

This is a brilliant collage of deep minimal techno recorded live in the wintery snow fields of Chamonix, France on March 7th, 2014.

Seth Troxler & Bill Patrick's Soundtrack for the Last Day on Earth

This is a journey by two well established artists through an emotional and moving soundscape blending lush sounds and moods and slowing emerging seamlessly into subtly jacking techno.
Scott Murphy's Christmas Mix 2013

Scott Murphy's Christmas Mix 2013

It's that time of year again... time for our resident Xmas DJ Scott Murphy! We hope this makes up for the lack of recent features but soon we shall be back with a whole new bag... in the meantime happy holidays and here's a few words from Scott about the mix:

If this is the first time you have been here, welcome! If you are a returning listener, thanks for not giving up on me after last year. Finally a good year! This year's mix was the ultimate materialization of talking about doing something for a long time and then doing it. I am proud to say that I have stopped downloading other peoples music collections and have generally abandoned, even forsaken, the digital platform entirely. I have finally made a natural progression into a purely analog set for this year's mix.

Making the switch to analog means a few things: I'm much poorer now, my kids won't be attending Yale university and DJ'ing, using record players and a mixer is more work than digital. If you don't know what analog means, its ok, I didn't know either until someone explained it to me. Basically analog means a warm sensual high and frosty cool lows, still don't know what that means, it's ok I don't either. But it's all records in this year's mix. Even more magical is that just about every selection is a 45 (45's are smaller, rarer and pack a punch but scratch very easily). I don't have some massive collection of vinyl. If you have one that you don’t want I’ll gladly pay for the shipping. Every selection was researched, scoped, sorted, bartered and then purchased.

It had to progress into something more. For the last 10 years everything I have posted was the result of other peoples digging and sharing.

I would like to extend a big thank you to Cory P. & Chris T. for the technical assistance, knowledge, time and support these last few months. If it wasn't for them I could not have pulled this year off.

All the best this coming year. Happy holidays and as always thanks for listening.

Please like, favorite and share this set if you enjoyed it. It means the world to me.

This selection of Christmas music has a little bit of blues, a whole lot of soul and a few great reggae selections. The last song is what Christmas is about. Everything is a 45 (not including the second last track). A very Smurphy Christmas to you and thanks for listening.
samurai.fm presents Phil Barbee's 100Days.100Mixes. #100

samurai.fm presents Phil Barbee's 100Days.100Mixes. #100

Phil Barbee is one of the craftiest DJs around, pushing new styles without ever forgetting his roots. He is a creative DJ that's celebrating 20 years of mixing with a project called 100Days. 100Mixes. For samurai.fm he put together a special mix that is focused on Bass Music.

Since his earliest days in 1992 when he started off as a britcore and jungle MC, Phil has been busy exploring new styles, always ingeniously involved in his own personal pursuit and never ever interested in copying or repeating “just because it's working”. Phil prefers to unite the different tribes, stay grounded, stay street.

Involved in countless activities, he is a fabulous jack of many trades. Together with his partner and labelhead Stephan Blachnik, Phil co-owns and A&Rs the Berlin based music label SUPERB recordings. Beside this passionate vinyl-only label project, he finished his second novel and is working on the second edition of his music map poster "My City", limited to 1000 copies. Busy Phil is also resident DJ at nhow Berlin, playing every Thursday and Friday at the biggest music hotel in Europe.

With 800 national and international gigs played and more than 300 ,ix productions Phil is excited about the forthcoming SUPERB tour in Africa and the Phil Barbee EP. Following 100Days.100Mixes you will realise how deep a DJ and A&R can go. Phil Barbee might not be perfect, but he's perfect for your club. Life is a mix.

DJ Marbo presents some states of mind

DJ Marbo presents some states of mind

DJ Marbo has us covered again with a fine double bill of his own inimitable style of futuristic organic pitched down trance in disco clothing, otherwise known as Tokyo Balearic. The hypnotising sound works in almost any setting, in the club, at home, on the subway or on the beach, but one thing is for sure - it's only Marbo that can get you feeling this way... and if you listen closely you can hear the voices that come through the music.
