“it is a restless moment
she has kept her head lowered…
to give him a chance to come closer.
but he could not for lack of courage.
she turns and walks away”

Broadcast 43 dives deeper into the sensual space of romance, inspired by Wong Kar Wai’s film In the Mood For Love. In collaboration with Sure Thing, this recording is from a live performance of both Piano Rain’s selections as well as Topazu’s during a viewing of Paul Clipson’s films. This installment will hopefully transport you, dear listener, into an incredibly romantic experience. A caress. A letter. A moment of carnal pleasure. An eternity of love. Enjoy.

Called “Approaching an Abandoned Helm,” her gorgeous release out on No-Tech is full of ferocious, intoxicating techno. Highly recommended.

Nelson, one half member of the noise/industrial/experimental techno duo Appetite with the lovely Jane Chardiet and she has her own No-Tech solo debut, Pendulum.

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.
