DECOMPOSED RADIO PODCAST #075: GUSN8R LIVE FROM CODE, SHEFFIELD
You're back with Decomposed Radio, and show number 075. As promised, we're rewinding again to Code Nightclub in early December 2019 for the outrageously good Climbing Works party. We've got quite a few of the sets recorded which is ace, so this time round we have my own set from the night, which closed out phase I of the party, and kicked off around 4.30am I think. I really can't stress enough what a privelege it is to play for a crowd like we get at this event, and looking out to a packed dancefloor full of happy, super up for it faces. You just know you can let loose a bit and lead people on a bit of a journey which they'll be more than happy to follow you on. I really enjoyed listening to the set back again whilst putting the show together, and remembering how up for it and properly locked into the music I was, confident that I could dish out some feisty acid techno, as well as some deep, tough spacey stuff, separated by what's become a bit of a traditional old skool breakdown slap bang in the middle. So let's waste no time and get stuck right in. This is GusN8r in the mix, recorded live at Code in Sheffield. Crank it right up!!

DECOMPOSED RADIO PODCAST #074: E-KUL LIVE FROM CODE, SHEFFIELD
Bless me Papa Sven for I have sinned, it has been over a month since my last techno broadcast....... We've had a bit of a break here at Decomposed Radio so apologies for the radio silence, but I've been busy collecting and processing some great music for the next few shows, not to mention recovering from the incredible Works Party (and after parties) back in December. Speaking of which, the next few shows will feature sets from the 2 rooms at the Climbing Works Party; Solid techno from the main room, and some weird and wonderful stuff from the amazing "Rave Cave" which had me unexpectedly dancing like a lunatic on the night! First up on the techno side of things, is this year's special guest "E-Kul" who kicked things into overdrive in the main room around 3am! He's been DJing, and promoting and running techno nights since the age of 16, when he managed to scrape together enough money to buy a pair of decks and a 2-channel mixer. Nights like "Havok" at Phoenix Club as well as the legendary "Orbit" were major influences, as well as artists like Ben Sims, Jeff Mills, Speedy J and UR. All this results in a high energy, tough and fast style which you'll hear in the mix today, but the great thing about this type of techno is that it still has a real tangible groove to it, which drives it along nicely! So strap yourselves in, and travel back in time to the 6th December at Code nightclub in Sheffield on 6th December last year... This is Decomposed Radio, in the mix, with E-Kul......

DECOMPOSED RADIO PODCAST #071: GUSN8R @ THE FREEBORN MAN TECHNO TENT, SESH VALLEY
Welcome back to Decomposed Radio! For show #071, we're going back in time to relive some incredible scenes in the Lake District, at the end of July earlier this year. The music, antics and general mischief at the "Freeborn Man Techno Tent" in what has now affectionally come to be known as "Sesh Valley" are now nothing short of legendary, and I was lucky enough to be invited along to play a set there on the Friday night of the 3 day event. With such an appreciative crowd there, plus alot of friends it's an event at which you can let loose a bit, and play some tracks that you might not normally, as well as the odd comedy addition mixed in for a bit of fun! So with that in mind, we hope you enjoy this slightly wild and random set. This is Decomposed Radio's own "GusN8r" in the mix, for show number 071........

DECOMPOSED RADIO #070: MIDDLEMAN
You're back with Decomposed Radio! After a month off for our summer holidays, we're back with a vengeance, plenty of fresh psyche and fresh new artists and music just in time for the autumn season! Just before heading away, I was lucky enough to attend a very special gathering of awesome characters up in The Lake District, with what's now become known as the "Freeborn Man Techno tent" in full effect! As ever, it serves as a lovely reminder of the suberb, unique and often quirky scene that exists between the two worlds of climbing and techno within the UK, and essentially why Decomposed Radio exists. Amongst all the amazing musical talent on show across an apocalyptic 3 days, were a fair few new faces, so I'll be making it my mission over the next month or so to pin some of these individuals down and showcase them here. First up amongst these is "Middleman" who's very kindly replicated his sublimely deep but subtlely groovy set from the Saturday night of the party weekend. Despite it being one of his first outings, he looks as at home behind the decks as pretty much anyone I've ever seen, and his track selection and mixing are second to none. So turn it up, and get psyched... for Middleman, in the mix for Decomposed Radio show 70......

You're back again with Decomposed radio, and a welcome return from podcast favourite Stacie-Ann Churchman, who helped us launch the Decomposed project back in the day, with a storming mix of deep, dark and very tough techno for only the 2nd ever show!! Since then, tons of people have been pecking us to get her back on the podcast, so I'm super psyched to feature her again, this time with a slightly more leftfield mix, with the same high quality as we've come to expect. Three years on from Decomposed Radio show #002, Stacie-Ann's still doing her thing music and techno wise, and has some exciting, if secret projects in the pipeline with various labels. She's promised to keep us in the loop, so watch this space and we'll ensure to word you up when the time comes! If you've not checked her outrageously good mix from show number 002 out, we highly recommend you do ASAP, but in the meantime, I'm happy to welcome back Stacie-Ann Churchman, in the mix, for Decomposed Radio show #069...........

DECOMPOSED RADIO PODCAST #068: GALUP vs GUSN8R (3RD ANNIVERSARY SHOW)
Welcome to a very special Decomposed Radio 3rd anniversary show! Just over 3 years ago, I had a bit of a mad "eureka" type moment when I realised just how much amazing musical talent that I was surrounded by in my extended circle of friends, family and artists that I'd been lucky enough to share the decks with at some amazing events and parties over the years, and decided to create a podcast with the aim of showcasing some of these talented individuals. Decomposed Radio was born, and since then it's snowballed along nicely, and I'm really proud of the collection of amazing artists and mixes that we've accumulated, and made accessible to people. For the third anniversary show, it was always gonna have to be something pretty special, and I wanted to put together something a bit different, so I roped in Decomposed radio favourite DJ Galup, also know as Sam Whittaker, for a special B2B mix alongside myself. We got psyched and got the beers in, turned up the speaker volume and with no real plan just dived headlong straight into a freestyle 2 hour recording session that seemed to fly by in no time! I'm really happy with the end result, which is a full excursion through some great and varied techno records, with each of us reading each others mind with track selection at times and randomly jumping into the mix to layer in extra tracks and effects to spice things up! It's also a bit of a battle between the light and the darkness, with us both pulling in different directions throughout the two hours, which hopefully gives it a good dynamic, and keeps it interesting. Huge huge thanks to all the listeners for your support, pyche and encouragement over the years. Please please keep sharing and spreading the word, it really does help us do what we do!! So now.....Decomposed Radio presents...... Galup vs GusN8r.....a special back 2 back mix for the 3 year anniversary show! It's not going off.......it's gone off.......

DECOMPOSED RADIO PODCAST #067: ANAGRAMM
You're back with Decomposed Radio. After a bit of a short summer holiday, we're firmly back on it with Show #067, not to mention a very special B2B mix for our 3rd anniversary incoming on show 068! This time round I'm super psyched to welcome "Anagramm" one of the original founding members of the incredible "Sheffield Techno Institute" who are to blame for putting on the best local techno nights and parties for the last 10 years! Also known as Fred Oxby, I've been really looking forward to getting him on the show. He's a highly accomplished musician, producer and DJ, having been at the helm of UK label "Planet Terror Records" as well as enjoying releases on "Red Skull Records" from Hungary, and French Label "Pavillion 36." The mix he's put together for show 067, is one of my favourie off- genre sets on the show for quite a while, featuring all things funky, wonky and ravey, including amen breaks, house, and good old detroit techno, all put together with a pair of technica and a pile of quality vinyl! So here goes, this is Anagramm, in the mix, for Decomposed Radio #067......

DECOMPOSED RADIO PODCAST #066: TRANSLATE
It's high time for another Decomposed Radio, and for our 66th show we're again heading over to deepest darkest North Wales, which has become a bit of a techno hotbed! Today's mix is provided by "Translate" a DJ/ producer duo consisting of local artists "Becket" and "Vidian." Becket's solo mix of outstanding techno all the way back on show 024 is still one of the most downloaded episodes, and when these two guys team up under the Translate alias they concentrate on the darker, deeper and sometimes more simplistic industrial sound of techno. As such the mix you're about to hear will be a real treat for the purists out there! Becket and Vidian have only been performing together as Translate for around 6 months now, and this will be the first mix that they're putting out there, so we're incredibly honoured to be featuring it here on Decomposed Radio. Translate will be playing the closing set of the Gottwood Festival on Anglesey later this year, so if you're in North Wales on the 9th of June definitely check that out! I can also highly recommend that you head over to Soundcloud for more information on these guys, as well as original productions, tracks and loads more mixes. So without further delay, Decomposed Radio proudly presents an exclusive mix from "Translate" for show 066. It's not going off, it's gone off...........

DECOMPOSED RADIO PODCAST #065: JEORGIA
You're back with Decomposed Radio. For show 065 we're featuring new DJ talent and friend of the show, "Jeorgia," who's put together a deep and dreamy mix of Sunday morning techno for us. Jeorgia's become a familiar and more than competent face behind the decks at lots of events that the Decomposed Radio crew and regulars frequent, as well as single handedly co-ordinating what sounded like an incredible party in a cave, somewhere in Dorset last August! Any listeners familiar with Richie Hawtin's "Closer to the Edit" mix are really going to appreciate this one, with some fantastic unique tracks in there and a really nice vibe to it. So settle in for the next hour or so, with Jeorgia, in the mix for Decomposed Radio show 065......

DECOMPOSED RADIO PODCAST #064: BEAT MONGREL
Spring is most definitely springing and it's time for Decomposed Radio number 064! This time around we have Bristol based DJ and producer "Beat Mongrel." Also known as Paul Twomey, he's one of the original climber/ DJ's and has been a big influence and inspiration behind my own music and DJing over the years since meeting him out in Spain back in the day, whilst out on a European climbing trip. He helped me out of a bit of a tight spot when I was stranded at the "La Mussara Refugio" after crashing the trip car, and generously supplied me with lifts and belays, whilst also getting me psyched for his music. He was always that hard working face behind the decks at the original and awesome Dorset DWS parties, along with some truly outrageous Pembroke bank holiday weekend raves, and has put together a deep tech house mix perfect for the sunny spring vibes around at the moment. So turn it up loud, and get right in the mix with Beat Mongrel, for Decomposed Radio 064..........

Hi and welcome back to Decomposed Radio. For show 063 we have another techno treat lined up for you, Sheffield DJ "Brutalist," which in a genre packed to the rafters with fierce DJ monikers is a strong contender for "most savage....."

He's played sets in a multitude of different cities and venues, and held down residencies in both his hometown of Hull, and here in Sheffield. He's a great example of the sort of young, talented, passionate and pro-active DJ's really putting the effort into the scene, who deserve as much exposure as possible, so make sure you get Brutalist and Magnetic North firmly on your radar! His mix takes us on a journey through some of his favourite recent releases spanning sounds of ambient, techno, electro and even some fast and feisty trance, with influences from labels such as "Blue Hour" and "Kulor-kulor - 001" So crank it up and get in the mix, with Brutalist, for Decomposed Radio show #063........

DECOMPOSED RADIO PODCAST #062: THE REAL THING
Welcome to another very special, climbing inspired Decomposed Radio. Back on Show 053, we featured a unique mix of the amazing original music from one of the most iconic climbing films around....."Hard Grit." It was really popular with Decomposed Radio listeners, so since then I've been working hard to collect all the music from another old skool and equally iconic climbing film...."The Real Thing" which features Ben Moon and Jerry Moffatt dishing out the justice on some hard and classic boulders in the magical forest of Fontainbleau. You can say what you want about Alex Honnold's impressive "Free Solo" that's showing at the flicks at the moment, but those of us that are really clued up know that the best climbing films ever made, are The Real Thing and Hard Grit, and as ever it's always the music that helps make a film truly great! So with this in mind, Decomposed Radio proudly presents your training and climbing soundtrack for the 2019 season.....Get ready to get your old skool funk and tech trance heads on, get down to some nitty gritty climbing, be rayt positive, and smash in some personal bests on your birthday.......This is The Real Thing mix on Decomposed Radio show 062....."In the snow....."
