Broadcast 58 of Infinite Beat is now podcasted for your listening enjoyment. Beginning with a short feature on Devine Weight, a collection of experimentations stemming from the Alex Zhang Hungtai’s “failed” attempts at composing through his famed saxophone, disfigured and manipulated into the washes and drones that you hear in the album as the end result.

According to the album’s description “Similar to Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Psychomagic, dreams and visions take on the roles of witnesses inside the uncharted labyrinth of the personal sub-conscious. To witness, is to believe. To believe, is to project a certain reality onto the external world. The projection then, has nothing to do with reality. Perhaps it’s where dreams go, after it dies.”

Afterwards is a short interview with visual artist, Subset. He is a working designer who creates beautiful, geometric, digital deconstructions that explore the visual and audio experience. He has performed his live visuals with Atom™, Silent Servant, Rrose, Powell, Marcel Dettmann, Perc and as the “fifth member” of the Surface Tension Collective.

The broadcast concludes with a mix showcasing his audio influences that have inspired his visual perspective. Enjoy.

Broadcast 57 of Infinite Beat is podcasted for your listening enjoyment. Featuring the new upcoming Ostgut Ton release from Dutch producer Martyn called Voids. He reaches back to his earlier influences, pulling out deep D&B roots, UK garage and lush primitive rhythms.

According to the release, “Voids is also an attempt to work through personal trauma and loss, including recovering from a heart attack and dealing with the passing of close friend and fellow producer Marcus Intalex aka Trevino, to whom the track “Manchester” is dedicated.”

After is a sophisticated, genre-bending mix from Mid-West artist and DJ He Valencia. With a talent for sculpting stories with his DJ sets, digging deeply for obscure cuts and connecting his Mid-West roots with a global perspective through music, He Valencia’s mixes are pure poetry. Enjoy.

Broadcast 56 features Atlas of Nothing’s latest release on Perfect Location Records called Audio Surveillance Zone. This San Francisco-based producer and DJ has crafted an EP full of lush sludge and throbbing weirdness. This is a highly recommended release.

Afterwards is an exclusive live mix from Teeyam. He is one third of They’re Here, a horror inspired party in San Francisco’s techno-electro underbelly with éstudy and Rodney K as well as a resident DJ for Outpost. Like Infinite Beat, his mixes celebrate the strange and the romantic.

Enjoy this visceral, sumptuous mix from the loved DJ, writer and film enthusiast.

Broadcast 54 starts with a short feature on the Neu U EP from New York-based producer Heidi Sabertooth. Featuring four electro stompers, her analog live performances are superb and her sound has developed into bold, acidic productions. Highly recommended.

This broadcast also features an exclusive mix from the prolific producer Auscultation. You may also know him as Golden Donna. He put together a collection of favorites: ambient abstractions, melancholy film soundtracks and a little bit of pop tinged romanticism. A wildly refreshing, unexpected look at the producer’s influences. Enjoy.
