About the show

Playing tracks by

Too Critical, Rhythmatic, Juno, Sweet Exorcist, LFO and more.

So this week I've got a mixtape of Bleep, which was a genre from the north of England that existed / was fashionable for a (very) brief period in the early nineties. It was one of Britian's first attempts at a homegrown style of electronic dance music (i.e. something that wasn't directly ripping off Chicagoan acid house tunes), and perhaps the best way to describe it is as a mixture of Detroit Techno and Britain's own West-Indies-derived love of all things bass-heavy. This brief moment in dance history is also notable for being where the whole Warp Records/LFO/Designers Republic/Nightmares On Wax/Aphex/Baby Ford scene grew out of. I've not had the opportunity to play any of this stuff for quite a while, and it feels somewhat relevant again (in light of the whole dubstep / bassline / future garage explosion), so here goes.
