dam mantle & joshua duncan
Keeping it local tonight, I’ve got two guests from my neighbourhood for an open deck, all vinyl session.
Taking to the table with indomitable positivity is Joshua Duncan, he’ll be sharing some dub history. Known locally for his involvement with Jah Works and Jahrobics, his infectious smile and parametric EQ tweek are an elevating DJ signature.
Tom Marshallsay is probably better known by his Dam Mantle moniker. I’ve recorded and listened to this dude a lot this year, he’s always busy with his numerous projects, but this session is about sharing his records... although, I’m hoping he’ll share some of his new tracks too.

Brooklyn-based sound artist Ben Vida began performing in Chicago with the minimalist acoustic quartet Town & Country, an influx of artists and improvisers had arrived in the city -- among them Ken Vandermark, Jim O’Rourke and Kevin Drumm. Peaked by an interested in ring modulation, Vida began to shift from acoustic music to synthesis; a particular form of synthesised music that shifted the role of the composer to that of the listener.
Utilising Max/MSP, he became aware of aural phenomenon and how sound is located in space, methods of emanating sound from the human skull, micro tones, spatialisation are all key components of his current work.
The following broadcast incorporates a talk and performance by Ben Vida recorded at Transmission. The talk creates the context of a performance that utilises frequencies to stimulate the bones inside your ear, a "psycho-acoustic trickery" if you will --as heard on his Esstends - Esstends - Esstends release available on PAN. Snippets of compositions in the Musique Concrete mode, using Epicly Later'd as it’s source, and his most recent project building a “boom-car” (which uses specific frequencies to rattle different components of the car) are also a feature.

Mark Pritchard, one-half of Afrika Hitech and Harmonic 313, took to the decks at Rubadub to play out some records that have got his attention of late. The producer has been associated with an exhaustive list of pseudonyms, making for an exhaustive Discogs list that takes in different movements, including some vital early 90s work that he and Tom Middleton were responsible for --like Global Communications unfathomably beautiful out-of-time masterpiece 76:14.
