The Radio Sessions: Editor’s Choice
Do you remember the days when radio shows only played on radios? Then shove off, grandad; it’s a Kids World and radio shows come out of these futuristic devices called computers, and also sometimes radios. If you’re looking for a good show, why not start here, where you already are? EB Radio brings in musicians and producers from all over the world to sit down with host Mathais Weck, chat about their work and interests, and bring a selection of tracks and an hour-long mix for our ears to enjoy.
Of course, you’re young. Everything you’re doing is important and there’s no time to lose! So why shuffle through hours of mixes when you can have trusty EB editors pick three great places to start? In fact, why even read this? Start listening already!
As we learned in our recent interview with Motor frontman Bryan Black, the guest vocalists on his latest album Man Made Machine (including Depeche Mode‘s Martin Gore and Nitzer Ebb‘s Douglas J. McCarthy) were something of a happy accident. We got more on his friendship with Depeche Mode, his alternate work as Black Asteroid, and plenty of sick classic tunes from the likes of DAF, Tones On Tail, and David Bowie.
2. Alec Empire
The Atari Teenage Riot frontman spoke to us about Steve Aoki‘s label Dim Mak (which is also ATR’s American distro label) as well as his latest remixes and personal works—with a few surprises thrown in for good measure. What are they? You’ll have to tune in to find out!
3. BlackBlackGold & Louise Brailey
Aside from his duties as an editor for ElectronicBeats.net, Daniel is also a music promoter and DJ under the name BlackBlackGold. Louise hails from London, and packs a love of grime that’s as heavy as her knowledge of the genre. Naturally the two played a fresh and truly unique selection of tracks including Nero’s Day at Disneyland, Terror Danjah, and Chelsea Wolfe.
