Broadcast 37 starts with a short feature on a collection of unreleased tracks from Earthen Sea. Recorded while he was still a resident in San Francisco before he ventured back to the East Coast, Earthen Sea self-released this series exclusively on his Bandcamp page. All proceeds of this release will be donated to the following organizations…
International Refugee Assistance Project
American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee
National Lawyers Guild
Afterwards is an exclusive mix, and a first time visit to the Radio Valencia studio, by the highly respected gentlemen of techno C.L.A.W.S. He is one third of the experimental post-punk trio Bronze (Not Not Fun Records, RVNG Intl), one half of Kit n C.L.A.W.S. with Kit Clayton and has many releases under his own moniker on Tigerbass Records.
Stygian Morass is his new EP release coming out on Left Hand Path and a newly launched label co-operated by both him and Solar called Squirrels on Film is setting the tone for this year in the best local techno excursions. The thriving underground dance music scene here in San Francisco wouldn’t exist if it were not for C.L.A.W.S. It surely would be poorly dressed. Enjoy.

“Over the last few years, many of my peers have started to shift their creative path from rock and noise into the realms of hardware based ‘dance’ music. Tekno. This delights me to no end, I feel like I’ve been waiting for this shift most of my adult life. I get asked for technical troubleshooting advice at least once or twice a week…I don’t mind, I love nerding out n helping out…but to be honest this is the advice I have to offer:
Stop trying to be a Performer and try to learn how to be a Facilitator. This is not rock n roll…let go of its mythology of western individualism and accept that you are an active participate in something larger than yourself. Lets do this.”
This is the last installment of a two part series celebrating the lives, work and legacy of many artists who are no longer with us. These are the East Bay’s Psychick Warriors: Barrett Clark (R.M.S., Polar, RPTN, Katabatik), Joey Casio, Micah Danemayer (Paralycyst, Discarded) and beautifully enigmatic Cash Askew (Them Are Us Too, Crecendo).

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this: Jay Fields (Exillon), Nihar (Surface Tension, Nine), Aja Archuleta (Crecendo, Piano Rain, Aja Vision) and The Creatrix. Special thanks to Valentyn. Finally, thank you to all of our listeners. It has been a blessing to get through this with all of you.

This is the last installment of a two part series on INFINITE BEAT celebrating the lives, work and legacy of many artists who are no longer with us. This Saturday, we celebrate those on the fringe who challenged, experimented and sculpted the underground scene, away from the expectation of club spaces and into the peripheral darkness. These are the East Bay’s Psychik Warriors: Barrett Clark (R.M.S., Polar, RPTN, KATABATIK), Joey Casio, Micah Danemayer (Paralycyst) and beautifully enigmatic Cash Askew (Them Are Us Too, Crecendo). They have influenced us, inspired us, mentored us and shaped who we are as artists, DJs, producers, as human beings and as music lovers who want nothing but to ride the rhythm together. Join us this Saturday from 4-6pm on Radio Valencia.
