beat beneath v julius funkhouser
The next installment of the Beat Beneath V series has been a long time coming - Julius Funkhouser will be taking to the decks on Sunday's show. Glasgow native Funkhouser (Dennis Seltzer-Grant) has been DJing around the city and running the Scenic Tones label for a number of years, recently putting on Missing Persons Club parties alongside yours truly, and as anyone who follows his soundcloud will know he's also prone to dropping some seriously grooving raw house beats of his own making on the regular.
Expect top quality deep house from JF in the first hour, which I'll then be complementing in hour 2 with some recently acquired vinyl including some heavier gear that I picked up in my recent trip to Berlin.

let conversation take place
As promised last time I'll be down at the studio despite temporal/geographical/sleep constraints. Two hours of music that I've bought and/or had stuck in my head for the last couple of weeks, and more. Tracks from from Vinalog, Ital Tek, Lumigraph and others.

Due to work commitments it's been a good few weeks since the last show but fear not, BB is returning to its rightful Sunday night slot tonight. It's a pretty ridiculous bank holiday weekend in Glasgow as far as lineups go, so whether you're heading to Omar S or Barnt tonight here's your warm up, or if you're listening later on in the week we'll keep the good vibes going...

After going all over the place with the Best of 2012 show, tonight it's just me in the studio again for 2 hours of the finest techno and house and maybe some other bits and bobs too

bb v 2012
In a bold move away from dance music media tradition, I've decided to leave the compiling of my "best of 2012" list until the year actually ends.
2012 has been an incredible year for electronic music - we've had an absolute glut of amazing music on the side of experimental electronic taking inspiration/paying homage to more traditional dance music forms, and vice versa; we've had former dubstep/funky producers turn their hands to house and techno and often doing a pretty good job of it; we've had 2011's visible emergences of both harder techno and deep Chicago-inspired analogue goodness come to maturity with old and new producers making the sounds their own, and, well, L.I.E.S. happened.
This show won't be by any means conclusive but I'm planning to shove as much good music as I can into the two hours in some sort of musically sensible order.
