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...

Hija de Colombia presents Stumbleine

Hija de Colombia presents Stumbleine

Following on from the recent release of El Nino Andres's wonderful debut album, Hija De Colombia takes a break from the sound of house & techno, and turns to Stumbleine for a collection of his weird, warm and brilliant electronica in the shape of ‘Ghosting’.

Ghosting is collection of early recordings from Bristol based producer Stumbleine. It features eight tracks, taken from three eps, spaced over two years. Musically Stumbleine draws heavily from rnb, chillwave & shoegaze all drowned in nostalgic lo-fi warmth. Influences range from Burial to my Bloody Valentine making the end result truly genuinely unique.

Listening to Stumbleine’s music is an immersive and engaging experience and with ‘Ghosting’ we are offered up the change to lose ourselves in everything he has to offer, enjoy!

EPM Podcast 32 – OktoRed

EPM Podcast 32 – OktoRed

Next up on the EPM Podcast we get our collective jit on as Detroit’s OktoRed gives us a full Motor City blast with his own OktoRed and Cocky Balboa productions mixed up with his own re-works of Franki Juncaj (aka DJ 3000), Katy B, I:Cube, Gauche Kids and the hip hop classic Wu Tang Clan ‘Aint Nothin’ To Fuck Wit’.

OktoRed, hailing from Detroit MI, has been gaining some real momentum of late. As one of Beatportal’s “Artists To Watch 2012”, and coming off his first YoSucka! imprint, ‘The Future Sounds of 8 Mile’ he wanted to showcase his ability to transcend from his kind, gentle side, to a more rough, dark side with the release of ‘Gemini 1 EP’ released on 4th May and the forthcoming ‘Gemini 2 EP’.

OktoRed continues a long lineage of Detroit Electronic Music. Limitless, genre expanding and intelligent, it can be said that this artist has pushed his music to project feeling. It is hard to define his genre and that would just be too limiting, as OktoRed morphs between indiscriminate tempo future bass, defined as Detroit infused techno, borrowing ideas from moombahton, dubstep, juke, footwork and ghetto tech.

A gun to the stomach by a typical Detroit stick up thug flashed his musical life before him, right before he gave up all the cash in his pocket, and his life was spared. He remembered his time as a kid, only 12 years old, teaching himself guitar while following the Detroit techno, ghetto tech and jungle scene. Over the next few years visions of gear, often given to him by older cats in the industry became realities, as he collected an old Koss drum machine, Fender Rhodes piano, various synths, and drum machines, coupled with a Roland MC 500 sequencer. At this point his tools would then be worked to all hours of the morning. Flash forward to the cold metal of a handgun, in his gut, he realized that his day gig was NOT the direction he needed to go in life and began working past sleep deprivation to give birth to tracks that have become Detroit underground staples. He had no choice but to make his grimy and dark, underground bass symphonies pound through the bodies on dance floors, laying them out one by one and turning them into frenzied fans.

He is currently releasing tracks on the YoSucka! Imprint, working on music that is sometimes inspired by current events. For instance, the track ‘How Many Moons’ was made in response to the riots in London of 2011. Overburdened by the thoughts of how people can burn down their own neighbourhood forced him to react in his own musical way. Software synthesizers, Ableton Live and esoteric tracker programs come under his command as he continues to produce, long after you’ve gone to bed and entered the deepest parts of slumber.


Q&A with OktoRed

1. Please give us a quick walk through your selection. Why did you choose these tracks for the mix?
I just wanted to showcase some of my current and upcoming releases from YoSucka! Music, Generation Bass and Motech Records. All of the songs are originals or edits made for personal use by myself. The songs in this mix are more to the smoother side of my production.

2. How would you begin to describe your style?
My style is all over the place. I like to mix it up as much as possible. I guess one consistent pattern from track to track is that I don't spend time over producing things. I like a more organic natural feel to a lot of my music. Lots of swing and lots of melody.

3. Your work although influenced by Detroit, also sounds from somewhere else. How has the fabled 7th City impacted on you as a producer and DJ?
Growing up we had a lot of good music on the radio that opened my mind and ears up to a lot of stuff I wasn't getting from friends and other places. We had lots of ghetto-tech and good dance music on the radio for most of my formative years. When the internet came around a little later, I got to experience lots of stuff that wasn't being played anywhere around here. I like to try to take from everything I listen to without being a copycat.

4. How has working with Brian Gillespie, one of the unsung heroes of the Detroit electro and ghetto tek story, helped you to envisage your work as an artist?
Working with Brian has been amazing. His knowledge has been a real asset and his ear for good music is the most valuable thing I've had in my corner in a long time. Also, I got to realise a dream of mine by releasing some new ghetto-tech/juke stuff with him on Juke Trax under the Cocky Balboa alias. His business knowledge and connection to the global dance scene has really helped in getting my music to people who would have otherwise never known of me.

5. How do you work in the studio? Do ideas come to fruition quickly or do you tinker with lots of ideas at the same time, going back and forth until one clicks and you focus on it?
I constantly work on music. Literally at least 6-10 hours a day so I have a bunch of different approaches. I like it best when I can sit and write and record a song in a few hours. I just let it flow on its own. If I get stuck I usually just delete everything and start from scratch. I just go be ear mostly. If it makes sense to me then I pursue it.

6. Which modern day producers currently impress you?
I really like Diplo’s stuff a lot. He seems to be all over the place but consistently good on the board. I recently found out about Boddika and lost my mind. It’s very simple sounding stuff that has so much feeling behind it.

7. What plans do you currently have for your own music productions?
Right now we are just working on getting out some new stuff. I’d like to keep everything different from release to release. Different tempos and feels. Once again, I just don't want to get pigeonholed into a one sound music career.

8. Where do you play out these days? Any plans to come to Europe?
I'm doing a bi-weekly live webcast with 8EN, Jawa and Brian Gillespie on the Everyday Sucka Webcast. I do visuals at a bar in the Corktown area in Detroit called "The Works" for Calico and Matt Clarke for their weekly Bass Down Low parties. I’m up to playing anywhere I can right now, but I mainly focus on production over doing live shows. I’m also working on starting up a weekly live radio show on TapDetroit.com.

9. Please give us your top 10 all-time favourite Detroit tracks:

in no particular order…
DJ Rolando – ‘Knights of the Jaguar’
A Number of Names – ‘Shari Vari’
Starski and Clutch – ‘Triple Gold’
Subject No001 – ‘Black Lives’
Drexciya – ‘You Don't Know’
Ectomorph – ‘Insert Another Data Disc’
Inner City – ‘Good Life’
Aaron Carl – ‘Down’
Rhythim Is Rhythim – ‘Strings of Life’
Jeff Mills – ‘The Extremist’

WYWRadio #70. Phew. Time to come back at you again from the slightly wonky side in celebration of, well, a fair few episodes of good tunes, dusty breaks and slow moving house.

Kicking the wonk off with a version of ‘Superstition’ that I truly didn’t like at first – a throwback to Russ Dewbury’s Jazz Rooms in Brighton all those years ago. From a great comp on Counterpoint if you can find it.

Smokey. He’s going to a Go-Go. Nuff said.

Cliff Nobles sounds like a minor league snooker player but in fact he’s got the funk. And a horse outside.

Marc Moulin and his mates were Placebo long before that fella with the pasty face and jet black hair. And they were Belgian, which the next-gen Placebo certainly weren’t (to the best of my knowledge). Here you’re getting the awesomeness of Balek. Check that intro.

Mandingo are in the all time WYWR hall of fame and I had to pick up an LP I didn’t have recently in New York. For you: the easy stylings of ‘The Snake Pit’. Go do your 60s detective work to this one.

Next, and courtesy of Louis ‘7 8 Trak’ Takacs, Mor Thiam (we’re thinking it’s pronounced ‘More Time’) gives us perfect wonk with his gumbo Missouri gem ‘Ayo Ayo Nene’. Oooh, how this works.

‘Cocody’s’ is a little 7 inch I heard playing a record store a few years back and jus had to have – I think it fits nicely with the Mandingo and Mor Thiam.

Then we change it up with a bit more electronic weirdness. Moonshot noises from Luca Lozano, then a suite from Lapalux which is sweet. Newness from Thom Yorke and his crazy dancing next, that was a nice surprise the other week, then following that with another man on his own path, WYWRadio’s man of the year from, ooh, 1892, Paul White. A good LP if you’re into it – Shaker Notes is the name.

Andras Fox is from Australia and has that kinda low-key Mr Fingers thing going on. Was waiting for this for ages, thanks to the folks at Mexican Summer. Fuxa keep the summer thing going with ‘Electric Sound of Summer’ while Coyote keeps the electric thing going with ‘Electric Sunburst’ which is off the excellent compilation of 5 years of recordings on the Is it Balearic? label.

Building up to the finish. Excellent and now hard to find 7 inch on Wah Wah recordings from Cheyenne, Z records give us two from a new compilation fro Nick the Record - M.C And His Great Cooga-Moogas (like, really?) and Theo Parrish fave ‘Aint No Need’ by Skye. Sandwiched in the middle the disco discovery of last year, Stephen Encinas’ ‘Disco Illusion’.

House n’stuff at the end of the show comes from Al Dobson Jnr representing Peckham, Erdbeerschnitzel giving us the free to download ‘Treat’, something new on 100% Silk by Lunate, another freebie by the Dead Rose Music Company and then to finish the wonderful mashup of Chic and Soul II Soul by Late Night Tuff Guy.

And that’s your lot. Links to buy all tracks at www.whatyouwantradio.com
