Broadcast 12 / 04 / 2014. Don`t know what was going on last night. I signed off one record short. If my delivery is a little shakey, well, as I entered the studio I had just been informed of the departure of my good friend Kiwada-san. I`m gonna blame both on this news. Thankfully my Producer Rocky-san, jumped in and saved the day. Again. どうもありがとうございます。

Nik Patrick is sending us this mix saying:
"As DJs we use machines like tools to interpret the meaning, function, and connection of selected tracks in order to activate an inherently omnipresent, gradual chain reaction inside the listener. In a world of seemingly endless musical tools, I enjoy limiting myself to vinyl in order to come closer to a true & emotional musical experience. Certain limitations are helpful, maybe even necessary to examine an idea more precisely & to acquire a creative set of motor skills. Through buying records I can make a more conscious investment into a functionally and emotionally sustainable library of music. A live crowd demands emotional and structural logic on the dance floor, so playing & recording at home is not ideal for dance music. Home mixes have more linear story lines, perhaps from the lack of influential energy that would otherwise alternate between a DJ and the crowd. And the abundance of complete beat-matching failures are due to the tempting option of elevating the needle and repeating the mix. This could also be seen as a lack of limitations. Therefore to create my own framework, a deliberate mood is built from within, rather than as a result of diversified, subtle, exterior impulses. I become my own most critical dancer.
If I had to chose a word at the moment I think 'techno' is the sound that lets me explore and experiment the most while keeping a steady dance floor oriented groove alive. More and more I try to define music for myself not in genre but in purpose. I am detecting tribal elements which are becoming more apparent and increasingly alluring to me. This might be the result of seeking out a communal mood while at home. There seems to be a deeper, inborn passion patiently waiting in my subconscious. To me tribal music is an idea/philosophy of what I think is the root of most, maybe all dance music. This becomes conceivable in the most instinctive, electrifying way: whether there is a drum or not, in one way or another, every human feels or senses rhythm in their heart. Together as a group, in a space, with a loud sound system, we relax our minds, and allow ourselves to physically express our emotions; It is easier to dance if others are dancing.
A party always starts with one uninhibited dancer. I started a dance alone at home, but a DJ without a crowd is not a party. Many people will react to the mix yet they will never form a physical crowd. The relationship between the DJ and the listener takes on an abstract form in diverse times and environments. Without technology & the internet we would need musicians with instruments to meet in a specific time and place, and have other interested people gather around willing to listen. This might explain my desire to limit myself in this new, paradoxical world of choice.
Always evolving, these thoughts are not meant to be rules. Tribal elements in music are essentially communicable, one can tell where a person is from by the beat of their drum. Which stands true today. Music has inexplicable healing powers without repercussions. True unconditional love. It is my silly ambition to explore and respect the existence of sounds. My future self may find new questions, not answers, along a progressively balanced, rational & spiritual path.
Recorded at home on march 24th, 2014, on two Technics MKII & DJM600."
