electronic // newwave // experimental // alternative // progressive
Hi And welcome to the Synthetic Soul Show. Here me and my robot friends hope to find a second home in your earholes for the 5000+ records lying around at GKHQ that we've been collecting for almost 30 years. We play as many cutting edge sounds as we can afford to buy, mostly on vinyl but occasionally on CD, mixed with electronica from the 60s right through to the present, new wave, post punk, dub, experimental, avantgarde, psych, electro-disco and occasional contra-pop sing-a-longs......with a preference towards the synthetic side of nature. Some of it may be uneasy listening but hey, that's what it's all about. GKM

12/01/2018 // 141. Best non-dance vinyl of 2017
So, hi everyone......right, today's show features, rather belatedly, some of my favourite tracks from last year.
I seem to have been ill at least twice this last month hence why I'm so late to the game
Anyway, here's a few of my favourite tracks from the year......and despite them all being great, I'd never actually listened to them all together in this context, let alone mixed them together as they're all pretty diverse in mood and vibe so excuse the amateurish mixing and schizophrenic route you may feel you've embarked on.....the whole thing was recorded from vinyl this morning in one take while I had a couple of hours. It occurred to me to re-record the messy second last mix where I bring in Red Axes (I think I was maybe thinking the first beat was the 3rd)....but no time.
I'm hoping I won't be punished for this and that you manage to enjoy this varied selection.
Next up will be a mix of the more dancefloor-oriented records I picked up.
Have a good weekend
