memekast mk087 » Spoken Bird

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 20:31:16 -0800

Episode mk087 comes to us from Chillage Records artist Spoken Bird. Comprised mostly of newly released material, we think that you're in for quite the treat! The episode starts out strong and moves easily from song to song, with his signature style of laser infused glitch hop. This mix is set to compliment his most recent release, How Old is the Wind. It contains many of the songs from this release, as well as many other remixes.

memekast mk086 » Origin

Mon, 19 May 2014 20:41:10 -0800

Episode 86 is something a little special and a little different than the normal Memekast. This mix comes to us from the one like Origin, with an intro from the original badman, Geno Cochino! It was recorded live at Lucidity Festival on the Lucid Stage (sponsored by Memekast), Saturday afternoon. The selections range from deep half-time business through some bangin' footwork and even a bit of DnB for good measure.

memekast mk085 » DubCOliNG

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 21:01:59 -0800

Episode 85 comes to us by way of DubCOliNG. Over 65 minutes of squishy, bubbly beats and bass served up with a side of turntablism and scratch technique. Showcasing his own music alongside selections from Tipper, Digital Rust and Kalya Scintilla, among others; we really feel like they stand out, with solid sound design and theme. He's surely an artist to watch in the near future.

memekast mk084 » LO-SCORE

Tue, 01 Apr 2014 00:00:01 -0800

This mix comes to us by way of LO-SCORE. We’d love to tell you more but all we got is a mix and a tracklist. There is no Soundcloud. No fan page. That’s all we know. *shrug*

UPDATE: Apparently there is a SoundCloud.

memekast mk083 » SugarBeats

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 17:30:38 -0800

Episode 83 comes to us from SugarBeats. This dynamic duo comes in hot with almost 50 minutes of straightforward Glitch Hop bangers. The mix starts out with their own original tunes and then moves into some of the genres most sought after artists, including Au5 & Fractal, Mr.Bill, Circuit Bent, and Stickybuds- chopped and screwed with layers of vocal edits and acapellas to keep it feeling familiar and danceable the whole way through.

memekast mk082 » Dabis

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 01:24:59 -0800

Memekast resident Dabis' last mix was back on 4/20 of 2011, and now he's back for another run. This selection takes us on a journey into the deep and dark depths of half time Drum & Bass and Footwork. Many of these selections encapsulate the terms "progressive" and "minimal", while still holding a theme and intention that feels clear the whole way through.

memekast mk081 » VibeSquaD

Sun, 01 Dec 2013 18:08:17 -0800

Episode 81 comes to us by way of our favorite master of the funk infused, squishy bass — the one and only VibeSquaD! This new mix contains a few tunes from his recent album Spinning Gears and Making Things. He also drops a couple of our old favorites, Swivel and Snagglepuss. Also notable are the Spoonbill collaboration and the remixes for Hellfire Machina and previous Memekast selector Freddy Todd (mk075). Definitely one of the most solid Memekasts to date, and we're stoked to be able to share it with you.

memekast mk080 » RudElgin

Sat, 02 Nov 2013 17:25:49 -0800

RudElgin comes in blazin' with mk080, for his follow up mix: a deep exploration into the many sounds and styles of Drum & Bass. WIth great track selection and practically flawless mixing, we expect nothing less from one of our favorite residents. While Elgin has been "laying low" for the last year, he's also been getting some really good looks. 2013 saw him playing Coachella, multiple EDCs and most recently supporting the popular "EDM" group Krewella on their recent North American tour.

memekast mk079 » Andreilien

Tue, 22 Oct 2013 13:28:08 -0800

Episode mk079 comes to us from Headtron and Muti Music artist, Andreilien (formerly Heyoka). Comprised of mostly un-released material, all of the tunes are forthcoming soon on Muti Music. We think you're in for quite the treat! The mix starts out mellow and dreamy, slowly moving into his signature style of dubbed out, glitch hop. It's the perfect soundtrack to help with those post festival season blues!

Media Files:

memekast mk078 » Spektrum

Wed, 03 Jul 2013 00:14:07 -0800

Episode number 78 comes from our own resident selector of selectors, Spektrum. This mix is an exploration into the current world of deep, dark, and at times minimal Dubstep.

memekast mk077 » jOBOT

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 00:15:57 -0800

Episode number 77 comes by way of jOBOT. Another one of the rising stars on the ever growing Headtron roster, he comes CORRECT with this mix. Starting out with some of that Zapp & Roger business, then moving through some heavy Electro influenced Glitch Hop cuts with Love and Light. Featuring mostly original material or remixes and collaborations with Stephan Jacobs, Gridwork and Walkerling, this mix is sure to please. The whole episode is a showcase of his skill not only in producing quality music, but also the ability to transition from tempo to tempo, style to style with very little effort. Although a required DJ skill crucial to a quality live performance, it seems that with the advent of Ableton it's one that's too often overlooked.

memekast mk076 » 2NUTZ

Sun, 24 Feb 2013 21:12:59 -0800

Kicking off the Year of the Snake, 2NUTZ delivers a 45 minute slammer. Starting out with some crunked out lazer beats and chopped, screwed vocals, then moving through some straight forward glitch hop a la Tipper, this is a mix designed to hold your attention from beginning to end.

After seeing their live set at an outdoor music festival in Southern California, we knew they could deliver the goods, and would make a great addition to our growing catalogue, so we decided to get them on ASAP. The track selection on this episode is top notch and the mixing is solid. Promoters should definitely pay attention to this duo for bookings this year.

memekast mk075 » Freddy Todd

Fri, 28 Dec 2012 23:43:33 -0800

Welcome back! We wanted to have someone special to roll out our 75th episode, and wrap up 2012. Who better than Freddy Todd? His most current release, Sick in the City, Alive in the Woods just came out via our friends over at Adapted Records. The whole album is a constant challenge to what Glitch Hop "is". His versatility and constantly evolving style make him hardly the type of producer that you can label as being in this genre, or that genre.

memekast mk074 » SeventhSwami

Sun, 01 Jul 2012 15:55:11 -0800

It's time for a resident mix! This episode comes to us from our very own Seventh Swami. His last Memekast was in 2007, and aside from a couple of releases on Muti Music, we haven't heard a lot out of him. He's been off the grid, living and doing some soul searching, occasionally surfacing for a booking here and there by his crews, Want It! and the Ambient Mafia. What he puts down for episode 74 is oozing with soul and sexiness. It's a mix made for the Summer.

memekast mk073 » ill-esha

Tue, 12 Jun 2012 07:39:22 -0800

Episode number 73 comes to us by way of Glitch Hop Forum co-founder, ill-esha. This mix was recorded live, using the Novation Twitch and Serato. She blasts through a huge list of tunes, coming from the likes of S.P.E.C.T.R.E., heRobust, Stephan Jacobs, ChrisB, Samples, and her new project Intellipaths with Unlimited Gravity. It includes many of her own originals, remixes and collaborations from far and wide. One of the many things that strikes us about ill-esha is the way that she is constantly setting herself apart from her peers with her own unique, soulful compositions and vocal style.

memekast mk072 » Pizza Party

Fri, 20 Apr 2012 06:58:08 -0800

Oh snap, it's time for the 4/20 Munchies mix y'all! Episode 72 comes to us from Pizza Party, the side project of Stephan Jacobs and NiT GriT. This order starts out crunchy with some of their freshest originals for the meat of the mix. Then it starts moving through some of their own solo works and remixes. To top the order off, they threw in the Freddy Todd remix of Stephan's tune In the Vortex and remixed a track by Metric. On the house.

memekast mk071 » Tinker

Mon, 26 Mar 2012 07:54:39 -0800

For this episode, we give you a uniquely crafted mix of favorites and originals by Bay Area up and comer Tinker.  Fresh back from her Hawaiian Tour in February, we asked her to give us a taste of what the hype is all about.  She absolutely delivered, sharing a selection of bumping tunes with tight basslines, wonky beats, and playful melodies. After setting the vibe with a cheeky remix of Henry Mancini's Pink Panther Theme, the mix slinks along with attitude, steadily increasing in tempo and injecting high levels of head-nodding bass and beats into your blood stream, warping your brain and stealing your heart. This one's not to be missed.

memekast mk070 » Hypnotech

Thu, 15 Mar 2012 09:11:49 -0800

For this episode we take you to a secret underground bunker, hidden somewhere along the coast of Northern California. To give you a mix from the man known by many, simply as Hypnotech. Being the co-owner one of the most well known online music resources for both dj's and listeners of the most cutting edge of todays bass music. We were expecting more of the "dope" hybridized mid tempo, womptastic, west coast, glitch hop and dubstep sound that we've come to expect from Addictech as a label and music outlet. Little did we know that he would send us a deep, dark, and at times minimal autonomic drum & bass mix of all new tunes from around the globe.

In our minds this mix further solidifies him as a downright excellent DJ, top notch selector and purveyor of only the finest beats. Every one of these tracks are seemingly hand picked out of the thousands that he sorts through every year. Progressing from sparsely programmed clicks and scattered beats and then breaking into some deep roller action. It runs the gamut of minimal to techy. It is both thematic and progressive in its evolution without ever straying too far from the sound that binds it together.

memekast mk069 » Ratchet

Mon, 05 Mar 2012 06:37:42 -0800

For this episode, we give you a selection of all original songs from Ratchet. He shot us a slammin' mix, hot off the release of his new album Warp Speed on Ooze System Recordings. It starts out with the uptempo dance floor friendly feel of Natural Movement, the Memekast giveaway track available for free on our Soundcloud Page. After that it breaks loose into his tunes Raw and Family Style, runs through a natural progression of bangers, then settles into some of the more melodic textural material he's released. With subtle tempo changes and on point edits he keeps you listening the whole way though and doesn't disappoint the ears.

memekast mk068 » +verb

Tue, 14 Feb 2012 04:53:32 -0800

Bringing it home with yet another Headtron episode (it really was unintentional, we swear), Number 68 comes from the man known as +verb. We've had him plugged in since he put out his 2010 X-mas mix-tape. Let's face it, he's kind of hard not to notice, given that he's putting new music out seemingly every week. He also has a string of highly acclaimed releases and remixes on Simplify, Muti Music, Robox Neotech and most notably his remix for Starkey on Civil Music.

memekast mk067 » Mad Zach

Mon, 06 Feb 2012 23:00:02 -0800

Episode 67 takes us to down to Santa Cruz, where we catch up with Mad Zach. His latest release has been causing a stir in the West Coast bass community. While he might be a fresh face on the scene, he's definitely no stranger to writing a good beat, having already released a full album, Wolf Spiders with collaborator R2 The Specialist. He also released a new EP entitled The Devil's Dancehall which came out on Muti Music in November.

Even when he's not writing music, Zach stays involved in the EDM scene through various jobs and projects. He works for the music technology blog DJ Tech Tools as a video producer, photographer and a product designer. He's also the owner of Custom MIDI Controllers, where he builds custom midi controllers for DJ's and producers all over the world. You can expect to hear some new music from Zach, forthcoming on Muti Music and through his own label, which he plans to start later this year, focusing on "more psychedelic and thought provoking experimentations."

memekast mk066 » Audiovoid

Sun, 29 Jan 2012 00:42:46 -0800

It's been a minute since we've heard a mix from Memekast resident Audiovoid. For episode 66, he starts it bouncing with his signature grinding crunchy mid tempo style, occasionally teasing in the pretty stuff, including Bassnectar’s remix of Fever Ray's When I Grow Up and even a new remix of NovaTRON's Fugue Regolar from our buddy Heavenly Father. The midtempo progression gradually bumps more and more, finally settling in on his own track Scared Slitless. Finally he lets the momentum of the mix take over, unleashing a barrage of twisted electro and dubstep heaters all the way up to drum & bass and back down again. Especially notable mixes include Culprate's Finger VIP into Audiovoid's re-edit of the Feed Me tune Cloudburn, then into Cutline's Runnin' Ft. Belle Humble VIP. The range of genres and sub genres that are explored, and the ability that he has to tie them all together, are refreshing to say the least. And he does it all while staying true to his own style. He seamlessly moves through tempos and constantly mixes it up with original tunes and re-edits. Score.

memekast mk065 » ChrisB.

Sun, 08 Jan 2012 18:03:49 -0800

For the first Memekast of 2012 we offer up a 22 minute mix from Los Angeles native, ChrisB. We were drawn to the smoother sexier, more melody driven productions that only partly describe Chris's sound. But don't get it twisted, it's not all chocolates and silk panties. There's a mad amount of chopped up West Coast crunkedelic vocals and slick, morphing basslines moving around under his straightforward Hip Hop style beats.

We were lucky enough to catch multiple performances from Chris this Summer. Most notable was his impromptu morning set at Sonic Bloom and his sunrise set at Nexus, with fellow musician Gladkill, playing as More Champagne.

Boldly exploring vast melodic realms full of hypnotic textures and a heavy dose of emotionally-resonant driving bass, his high energy live performances never fail to inspire each person in the audience. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he is utterly unafraid to toss aside the crutch of 'brute-force' sonic assaults and instead relies only on his brilliant melodic compositions. Chris’s sound reflects a developed musicality not often associated with the bulk of contemporary electronic music.

memekast mk064 » Stephan Jacobs

Wed, 21 Dec 2011 12:38:58 -0800

This episode of the Memekast will be the last one for 2011, and in typical fashion we like go out and in with a bang. For number 64 we take you to Los Angeles, for a special mix from Stephan Jacobs. Having known Stephan for a few years, it was an obvious choice. But we had to wait until he had the time. Also having been selected by The Do Lab as a featured performer at Coachella for the last two years, Lighting in a Bottle, Nocturnal Wonderland, Burning Man, and many other festivals, underground events, and clubs this summer. He has a virtually non-stop touring schedule.

As one of the most exciting multi-genre producers in Southern California today, Stephan Jacobs draws from a powerful collection of original material and heavyweight remixes. This passionate young producer slings out stimulating sets of uptempo dub step, twisted glitch hop and straight-up West Coast crunk

memekast mk063 » MartyParty

Tue, 13 Dec 2011 20:56:12 -0800

For this episode of the Memekast we check in with our Brooklyn, New York home base to bring you an all original mixture from the one and only MartyParty. We've really admired his DIY style of making, mixing, mastering, releasing and playing his own material and the amount of love that he shows for his fans. Never one to be outdone, he asked us what kind of mix we would like to hear. The choice between a "90bpm melodic, pretty mix" or a "140bpm purple rager" was an easy one for us. Full of original tracks, exclusive collaborations and sick remixes. We were more than excited when he agreed to be featured, let alone to be given multiple styles to choose from.

It’s all about experimentation and invention - that’s why I make music the way I do. The new tooling in digital music production allows me to sit alone in my room on my iMac with two KRK Rockit monitors and a subwoofer, and produce original music from the first chord, right through to mastering and release on the internet - in one day. This freedom and power make it easy to explore the limits of the audible sound spectrum, including sub bass, poly-melodic harmonics and sound design, with incredible speed, productivity and without complying to any convention. My mission is to change the way people think about electronic music and to bring the art of musical composition back into popular music. My dream is that I inspire others to do the same. We live in a digital world, I’m not interested in emulating anything that has been done before.

memekast mk062 » MiHKAL

Thu, 08 Dec 2011 20:25:27 -0800

For this episode we stay at home in the Bay Area to bring you just under an hour long mix from MiHKAL (mee·KALL), which stands for "Music I Have Known And Loved". We've been big fans of MiHKAL's for quite some time, having seen him develop and fine tune his signature style over the past few years. Combining smooth sexy beats, custom mashups and glitched out vocals with exclusive tunes from some of glitch hop's most prominent artist's, we're sure this mix will keep your head nodding for months to come.

Perfecting the art of audio alchemy, MiHKAL approaches his musical creative process as a chemist synthesizing a newfound molecule. Blending an omnitude of genres and tempos into a seamless bass induced euphoria, MiHKAL brings both the light and dark elements into harmony with melodic rhythms intertwined with heavy bass lines. Whether serving the crowd a plate of face slapping bass with a side of womp sauce or raising the vibe with higher frequency melodic soundscapes, he puts intention into his performance just as a shaman would, guiding his ceremony.

Mon, 21 Nov 2011 16:20:04 -0800

For this episode we go to New South Wales, Australia to bring you Mr. Bill. If you haven't heard of Bill before, we're not too surprised. He's been sort of under the radar until recently but we think this mix will get your attention.

Recent credits include remixes for Vaetxh and Bluetech, as well as collaborations with Bran Richards and our own resident Tha Fruitbat.

My name is Bill, however I am currently more well known for writing and performing electronic music under the pseudonym Mr. Bill. This project is based around evocation, I like to write music that excites the ear and the brain. This requires me to explore all sorts of strange production methods and musical theories to keep exciting my senses.

memekast mk060 » Genji

Sun, 13 Nov 2011 14:57:49 -0800

For this episode we take you back to the Bay Area for another appearance from Memekast resident Genji. This mix is a bit of a departure from the sounds of his previous Memekast, in 2007. An exploration in texture and movement, the dark, grinding bass and copious crunch of mk026 was both moody and heady, but with enough solid grooves and glitchy rhythms to keep your head bobbing.

memekast mk059 » ProJect Aspect

Tue, 04 Oct 2011 19:30:52 -0800

To get the new season of Memekasts started off right, We selected Denver native ProJect Aspect, a member of the Mile High Sound Movement, a talented pool of artists and producers located there. We had a chance to hear him play a few times at Sonic Bloom this year along with previous Memekast guest Seied as well as Tipper, Vibesquad, Eoto, Jantsen, and Jamie Janover just to name a few. We were very impressed by the consistent quality of music that we heard while we were there. ProJect Aspect's production made us take notice and get him on the short list for a Memekast. Which also happens to coincide with his ProJect Aspect fan page acquiring over 2000 fans as well as a new release featured on the music label Gruntworthy. And in celebration of these two recent achievements he gave us an all live mix tape of unreleased material to swing into the Fall season. Exclusively for the Memekast.

Sat, 13 Aug 2011 14:53:36 -0800

Is it still a fanny pack if you rock it in the front? Is it still Dubstep if there isn't any dub? Niles plays the music that he feels is embracing the future of Dubstep without losing sight of its roots. Referencing the sound of early Tempa two step and sometimes stripping it down to a more minimal dub techno feel.

He's been keeping his head down and his ear to the ground while planning some new projects you are sure to be hearing about soon, as well as doing more remixing duties for VTG.

Digital Honey is the dynamic duo of Alia (13moontribe, Raindance, Nexus) and Ginger Vaughn (hitgirl!). They consistently lay down some of the fattest breaks available. Fresh off the heels from slamming performances at both Raindance and The Bounce Festival, we thought it was about time to bring you some straight up hard, funky Breakbeats, enjoy.

We decided to chill out this week and not book the bangers, this episode comes from Rena Jones' new music label, Cartesian Binary. We've followed and been fans of Rena and her many projects for a long time. We met up with her recently in San Francisco and she gave us a preview of some of the music featured on her label's new album, so we asked her if she wanted any of her artists do a mix for us. After keeping in contact over the last few weeks, she sent a beautiful moody piece comprised of select tracks from the album Cloud 11 , mixed by b0t23. We hope you like it.

Tue, 03 May 2011 10:23:44 -0800

For Memekast episode #55, we roll down to Los Angeles for an exclusive mix from one the most prolific of our favorite SoCal producers, Ruff Hauser. He slapped us with over 48 minutes of melodic, throbbing, twisted, bass heavy beats. Mixing much of his own unreleased material with tunes from some of the hottest producers out on the charts, like Tipper, Zeds Dead, High Rankin and also his partner in Kether, Stephan Jacobs. Moving seamlessly through different tempos and styles, from glitchy Mid Tempo, to Dubstep, Dub Techno and 2 Step. This mix solidifies Ruff Hauser as being a top notch producer in our minds, he has definitely achieved that polished sound that producers spend many years trying to achieve. He's seen releases on Muti, Addictech, and Beatport. And for good reason...

Dabis hits you with a fully charged pulse of low frequency energy, flooding dance floors with waves of sub bass. While the tracks he drops hail from far-flung corners of the electronic music sphere, you can count on him to grace your eardrums with individually mined and polished gems.

For this episode of the Memekast, we are very pleased to bring you Digital Rust. He gave us an all exclusive, all original mix of 3 released and 6 unreleased tracks! Expect a new forthcoming EP on Addictech in the very near future.

He played an epic sunrise set at the Temple of Flux this year and we knew that we had to have him on the Memekast. But he made us wait until he had a release under his belt.

His first offering, Loophole, out now on Addictech Records, takes listeners on a ride through dirty wobbles, thick basslines, talking synths bits, and chunky beats. Digital Rust constructs a twisted soundscape that pulls inspirations from Glitch Hop, Dubstep, and Breaks.

Dirt's production has been highly acclaimed for taking the listener on a journey through several different moods and levels of intensity. He is especially known for his hard thumping Techno. Combining evolving textures and stretched out psychedelic layers with moving basslines and thumping 808 sub rhythms. Stay tuned for releases from Dirt later in the year.

He also has an upcoming Addictech EP due out in the next couple months as well as a brand new website launch. Expect quite a few surprises from him in 2011. We're stoked that he had some time to get us an all exclusive mix just for the Memekast.

He has releases on Addictech, Digital Distortions, Plastic Sound Supply, and Be Green Records. Having been remixed by the likes of Bassnectar as well as doing bangin remixes of Si Begg's Tyranny of Pesto and Dicrylium's Hippy Britches.

Sat, 15 Jan 2011 21:12:28 -0800

He's been called LA's best dubstep DJ... but his mom has always been really supportive like that.

Elgin first fell in love with electronic music in 1996 when a high school buddy turned him on to Music for the Jilted Generation. Three years later, a friend needed a place to store a set of belt drive decks and an old was on these decks that his fascination with mixing was born. Out of this fascination and after many years of dedication, he gained the skills to mix with ease, moving through various tempos and styles, while making sure that YOU are having as much fun as he is!

Welcome back, and welcome to 2011! We have a lot planned for this year, as our East Coast operations ramp up and our West Coast team expands and cranks up the intensity. We have a serious lineup already, including new resident Spektrum, more resident mixes, and some surprises…

To start the new year and new chapter off proper, we head to Oakland to bring you a set from Dirt (Cymbalic Recordings / Techno Truth). Known for his infamous Wilderbeats events in California's Sierra Nevada mountains, going strong since 1999, Dirt is especially known for his half-tempo work, a "hybridization of Dubstep and Downtempo, combining beautiful guitar playing along side shifting textures and ever evolving atmospheres for late hours of the night or early mornings."

Back to the Bay this month for a session from dubstep soldier Rastatronics. Repping Subwize and MalLabel out of Santa Cruz and SF, respectively, Rastatronics has been pushing subs throughout the Westside with an unapologetically heavy sound. On the decks since 1998, he joined forces with fellow bass slinger 187 Sound System to found the Subwize crew in 2008. Since then they have brought more members on board, and worked collaboratively with other crews to push the dubstep sound in the greater Bay Area.

The Memekast officially spins back into action this month from our new headquarters in New York City. Much is going on behind the scenes, and we will be introducing some new personnel this year, as well as expanding our primary geographical focus, which to date has been primarily the San Francisco Bay Area. Notably, our new base of operations places us in proximity to some highly capable operatives in NYC.

Speaking of personnel, for MK040 we are proud to introduce a longtime MK2 operative who has taken on the additional role of Memekast resident!

For this show we got a visit from Tha Fruitbat, reporting from Sacramento with a collection of originals and remixes. It's fast, hard breakbeat and electro — glitched, chopped, and beaten like the redheaded bastard lovechild of Si Begg, Aaron Spectre, and Audiovoid, having slipped each other GHB in the secretly shared hopes of setting off just such an unholy union.

Well it has been a while, hasn't it? Our heartfelt apologies for leaving you without your fix for so long. But the Memekast is officially back in action, and to kick off 2009, we brought the HEAT.

Representing Daly City Records in California, we're delighted to present 40 minutes of all new, unreleased material from Mochipet. If you haven't heard of Mochipet through his work with artists like Spank Rock, Kid606, Ellen Alien, and Otto Von Schirach (on such labels as Tigerbeat6, Bpitchcontrol, or his own Daly City imprint), then perhaps you've read about him in the Village Voice, URB, XLR8R, or SF Bay Guardian. Or heard his tracks while you were watching Tony Hawk, Lance Mountain, or Ray Barbee on Fuel TV.

Yeah, we didn't exactly discover this guy. But we're honored to share this exclusive set with our listeners.

Today's episode finds MK2 scattered between Chicago, DC, and SF, a perfect time to reach to more distant shores for a guest selector.

For episode 35, we're pleased to present Melbourne's vinylminds (AKA Superpolitik), a dj/producer and co-owner of breaks/down-tempo label Trickery Collective. Classically trained, he also studied jazz and improvisational guitar & piano, and spent much of the 90's playing in funk & rock bands. But as the millennium turned over, he put his guitar on the shelf and reached instead for a sequencer.

He started making himself known in the Bay Area around 2000, slinging a special recipe of hard trance, acid, energy, and breaks under the moniker Darth. A few years later he joined forces with Dirt and Nugz to start breaks weekly Broke-Ass, and launched a monthly at the now-defunct @lpha Bar called Smoke Breaks. He also briefly ran a weekly called Crooked at Nickie's on Haight Street, which was interrupted by the gentrification of that venue.

Welder is a new addition to the West Coast.

His debut LP Vines and Stream was released by Cyberset (SF) at the end of 2006 and has since been working in the studio on original works as well as collaborations with Rena Jones, Brian Seed, and Minus Music (featuring Knick from Evol Intent) to name a few. A couple reviews from Vines and Stream...

According to our intelligence reports, Neuronaut, a Cambridge UK-born solo agent currently operating from San Francisco "explores a wide gamut of possible stimulation to the auditory nodes through ambient, down-tempo, breaks, glitch, and dubstep musical modalities." He is also known to have co-founded at least one splinter group of notable influence, a key provider of material support known as Addictech. In addition to a fully deployable 20,000 watt sound system, this highly active cell's assets also include a staggering cache of sonic materiel available as digital downloads, vinyl, and CDs; as well as a new label whose agent roster includes Neuronaut, Future Funk Squad, SOTEG, Lawgiverz, and Habersham. For MK016 he has prepared an exclusive set of 5 original, as-yet unreleased tracks. You might feel a slight tingling in the brain as the patterns install themselves; this is normal with any effective neurotemplating device. Trust him, he knows what he's doing.

Frequently appearing alongside her boys, California's notorious Glitch Mob, she has recently been dropping the bottom out of such venues as Element NYC, 1015 Folsom, the XenoDrome, Retox Lounge, Supperclub, and various underground spots on and off the playa. For the memekast, she drops eleven tracks of deep, sexy, bass-heavy glitch-hop and grime, including a spankin' new original track to get things rolling.

Representing Muti Music and MDEX, Audiovoid has been practicing his dark, funky brand of mind control since 1998, both under the Audiovoid moniker and as LayerZ. His most recent full length release is called Whispers from Shadowz, and is available online only, from Fake Science. His last CD, Disconnect Yourself, is on MDEX and can be purchased from the MDEX shop or as a digital release on Beatport and iTunes. He also has a ton of tracks available from Addictech, with more being added. For our twelfth episode he subjects us to 9 original tracks, two of which are previously unreleased, all of which are nasty. Get ready to take it right in the earhole. You know you want it. memekast mk012 » 14 February 2007 » Audiovoid Extreme Sonic Design Geomtric Faces Lunch Breaks Sonic Anomaly Granular Hell Impending 2007-Memekast Shoutout Borg Design OPtic Nerve Core Spectikal Upcoming: 2.17.07 Year of the Fire Boar_Chinese New years event 2.24.07 Downlow 2 year anniversary party 3.20.07 Audiovoid and StarScream @ WOMB!!!!!Tokyo,Japan 5.04.07 The Experiment@FatCITY_W/LawgiverZ For more info and details visit: memekast_mk012_200702.mp3[...]

It's that time again! Which reminds me... we're rolling out a new feature this month. It's a little something we refer to affectionately as "twice as many episodes." Starting... NOW! We will be releasing a new episode every two weeks. Now, i know what you're saying. "Twice as much memekast? Won't that like... rip a hole in the universe or something?" And it might. I, for one, am willing to take that risk. To mark the occasion, i contacted a very skilled agent, and founder of one of our favorite corporate allies, benchun of False Profit, LLC. For those who don't know, False Profit hit San Francisco in 2000 like a 7.5, with a relentless series of aftershocks at their corporate headquarters at 43 Norfolk lasting five years. During that time, benchun held down a two-year run of Wednesday's at Wish (with Halon of Fake Science), later called Samurai Soundsystem (with Joe Encarnacion of BFamily Records). He started FP's monthly Dividend events at 26Mix, later moving them to Nickie's in the Lower Haight. Dividend continues under the direction of other FP agents, currently at Anu. He also started their monthly happy hour at Il Pirata, Equity, with Boreta from Nexus. He was instrumental in orchestrating the legendary Priceless campout. He also rolls with the Space Cowboys, has rocked the Unimog in BRC, Tahoe, Breakfast of Champions... Yeah, the list totally goes on. But you get the point.

Sun, 31 Dec 2006 08:27:50 -0800

Happy New Year! I know it's been a while but the memekast is officially back in action (don't call it a comeback). We're on a new host, we got a new site, and there's a whole bunch in store for 2007 (big tings a gwan). Like a ton of guests that have been waiting patiently while we sorted out the troubles. To kick off the new year, MK2 is very proud to present San Francisco's Djeeno (Word of Mouth, Infinite Kaos), who i personally have been looking forward to having on for a while. Originally from Santa Barbara, Djeeno has been a resident with Word of Mouth since their first event in 1999, and has continued his involvement with them both on their home turf and here in the Bay as they've expanded northward. Since relocating to SF in 2000 he's also been deeply involved with Infinite Kaos and Opel/Opulent Temple, twistin' heads on and off the playa with his tripped out arrangements and basslines that i'm pretty sure he poured out of a meteorite. For our tenth episode, he brings us an eclectic mix of glitchy, heady, psychedelic brain food for heads to nod to and booties to shake to. Most of these tracks are unreleased originals, some produced solo and a couple with Chris Sia as Copal. Enjoy... memekast mk010 » January 2007 » Djeeno "Help Me Lift You Up"- This Mortal Coil (Djeeno's Glitch 'N Bass Remix) "OutsideInsideOut"- Tipper "U and Dat"- E40 (Copal's Third Eye Remix) "Rainy Season"- Djeeno "Mercy Stretch"- Djeeno "Ohana Chandra" - Copal (Shiela Chandra Homage) "I Shall Be Free" - Kid Beyond memekast_mk010_200701.mp3[...]

Ok, we're gonna be behind for a few episodes, please bear with us. Nuff drama, some positive tings, some challenges. Continued technical difficulties have kept Adegen out of the rotation again - we're starting to feel like chumps saying "next month" every month, so we're just gonna keep you in suspense and bring it when we bring it.

But this month's big announcement is a recent personnel acquisition. Joining our audio mind control unit in San Francisco is Niles, a skilled vinyl media technician who was a founding member of Love Street Productions, throwing warehouse and desert parties in Phoenix, Arizona. He comes to the decks for this episode with a long player for the haters - 50 minutes of dancefloor destroyers inna dubby new-school style. Like mom used to make. If your mom is into that kinda shit.

Better late than never, right?

Well we at least have a somewhat decent excuse: MK2 was straight up gentrified out of our beloved Nob Valley headquarters in SF (that's a real estate joke, for those outside "The City" — true story though). It was a Russian Mafiya job, complete with structural sabotage, cut telephone/internet lines, and a game of good cop / bad cop (but with Russian gangsters instead of cops).

Anyway, we're in a temporary space while we sort it all out (in the Avenues, surrounded by Russians, as luck would have it), and... here's a mix from dj_SpaceInvader, hope you get it in time for the drive...

Summer is in full swing in places with real seasons, but here in San Francisco if we want it hot we have to take matters into our own hands. Enter Jocelyn, who turns up the heat this month with a sexy session of electro-house naughtiness. A veteran of the Bay Area underground, Jocelyn was a primary organizer and DJ for the only series of events that I've ever known to spawn an actual, official religious organization (the legendary Fusion campout events). Currently she (along with Adam Ohana) runs San Francisco's Get Freaky events at 1015 Folsom, a consistently bangin' monthly party that has hosted Adam Freeland, Krafty Kuts, Stanton Warriors, Freq Nasty, and Tipper, to name a few. Get Freaky will be celebrating their third anniversary in September (congratulations!), so make sure your calendar is clear for September 8 (and you might want to go ahead and keep the ninth clear for recovery). memekast mk007 » July 2006 » Jocelyn 1. oliver giacomotto and damon lee - play 2. jennifer cardini remix - very secret 3. in flagranti - convolutions 4. 50 cent remixed by david starfire - candy shop 5. diplo featuring mia - china girl 6. parker frisby - krank feirn 7. mr. timothy t-funk feat. inaya day - glamorous life remix 8. cirez d - rematch 9. richard bartz - 089 10. unknown 11. shapemod S036 feat snax jamie lidell - loves too much remix 12. blaque - 808 upcoming events 07.21 - Priceless - a collaborative campout presented by False Profit and Downlow. 07.22 - Kinky Salon 08.04 - Electro event by Desiree - More info will be posted at [...]

Summer's rollin' up on us this month, and just to make sure we get it started right, we brought in an expert. For June, San Francisco's Stepwise comes correct with a collection of his own exclusive dancehall remixes. This Argentinian-born DJ/producer has been spinning records for the last decade, played just about everywhere there is to play in SF, lived in Australia for two years (where he held down three weeklies), and is now back in the Bay representing Audiopharmacy (respect). You can hear more when the official mix CD drops (REmix 101, due late June), and be on the look for Stepwise remix 45's (in stores now). Nuff live dates too, including June 24 at the Canvas Gallery with Daneekah, Jocelyn (mk007 coming next month), DJ SpaceInvader, Sixtwentyone, and Adegen. More info will posted about that event soon. For epsiode 6, Stepwise gives us a sneak preview of what's coming up when that mix CD drops, with 24 big, 808-heavy, crunky as hell remixes of top dancehall cuts from Vybz Cartel, Buju Banton, Capleton, and more.

Mon, 01 May 2006 03:35:50 -0800

For our fifth episode, San Francisco basspimp Kraddy steps up with 30 minutes of that glitchy, electro dancehall hip-hop kind of shit that no one has a name for. We eat that shit up. We think it's representative of an emergent musical (and we're gonna go ahead and say cultural) paradigm powered by the disassembly of genre boundaries and skillful application of technology. And we love how it just make a booty shake. Kraddy has been involved in music production since interning at a San Francisco recording studio in 1996, and has produced for a variety of projects, including bay area hip-hop innovators Paris and Mystik Journeymen, dance companies Capacitor and the Printz Dance Project, and various films and commercials. His original tracks and remixes have been shaking dancefloors in the US and abroad, with support from the likes of Dave Tipper, Freq Nasty, and Bassnectar. In addition to several 12" releases on Texas' Bless Records and SF Breaks mainstay Muti Music, Kraddy has a full-length CD, Truth Has No Path, available on his own Refiner Records imprint. mk005 » may 2006 » kraddy 1.

memekast mk004 » DJ Tropik

Sat, 15 Apr 2006 12:59:15 -0800

The memekast for April 2006 is dedicated to the memory of Scott Ricks, aka DJ Tropik. Tropik was ubiquitous throughout the DC metro scene from the mid-nineties until he took his own life in February of this year. With more or less constant appearances all over the East Coast and beyond, and several track releases (including two for the soundtrack of the acclaimed MTV film Better Luck Tomorrow), Scott's creative capacity seemed endless. And although those of us who were fortunate enough to know him personally got a glimpse of the hard work and dedication he relentlessly poured into his deejaying and production, it was such a natural part of his movement through this world that it appeared effortless. The set for this episode is one of his last recordings. It was never released, and was played at his tribute party at Cubik in Washington DC on April 7 [photos]. A fund has been set up in his name with the National Mental Health Association (NMHA). If you can, please consider making a donation to the Scott Matthew Ricks Suicide Prevention Fund. This donation will go toward NMHA suicide prevention programs. In a scene often characterized by cliquishness and hyper-competitiveness, Scott Tropik was about as close to universally respected as one can get. He was loved by many, many people, and will not be forgotten. We're happy to share a little bit of his light with our listeners. Enjoy. memekast_mk004_200604.mp3[...]

For March the memekast presents Daneekah (aka Miss Trees), and we hope you're ready. Hailing from Australia, where she held residencies at Melbourne's Burning New, Mash It Up, and Ruff Enuff weeklies, Daneekah is currently posted in San Francisco, and has been making appearances around town (most recently with with bay area hip-hop supercrew Audiopharmacy). For this month's memekast she drops thirty (30 [three-oh]) tracks of absolutely bangin' dancehall.
