    EP103: Dave Clarke

    EP103: Dave Clarke

    Today’s episode of Electronically Yours features one of the most famous UK DJ’s to emerge during the techno boom in the 90’s – Dave Clarke. 

    Hip hop and post-punk were his initial major influences, including The Damned. He quickly became fascinated by electronic production, forming his first band Hardcore on XL, then released a series of albums, leading to John Peel him self dubbing him ‘the Baron of Techno’. His moist recent album ‘The Desecration Of Desire’ in 2017 is a powerful work, and has recently become immersed in the world of photography, and still DJs around the world.

    Ladies and gentlemen – the Baron himself – Dave Clarke…

    UNLOCKED / Electronically Ours: Charlie Morrow

    Today’s exciting Electronically Yours episode (unlocked from Electronically Ours) features the legendary Charlie Morrow. 

    Charlie (a native New Yorker) is a world-famous composer, sound artist, performer, and innovator whose goal over the past four decades has been to bring experimental sound and music to a wider audience. And, through avenues including concert performances and ad jingles, city-wide events and film soundtracks, museum sound installations and hospital sound environments, his work has  been experienced by a wider audience than most creative artists can claim. He was a major inspiration and mentor to Martyn when they were first introduced in 2001 in New York.

Amazing

Electronically Yours is totally entertaining and Martyn does an amazing job.
Just hoping he can interview Jean Michel Jarre one day.

Stupendous

Powerful insights into a world that one drooled over way back when we transitioned from space age to the digital age. Could you find the bloke that played synth solo on the outro of “Ashes to Ashes”. Always grabbed my attention. Recommend the pod to all my synth noodling friends who loved (being boiled ) back in the day . Congrats this is the best pod of its kind . Regards Phill Ward. Ps my fav synth is the Pro One ! None of that Roland rubbish

mr big ears ,

Heart, soul and the sweet sound of machines.

Martyn’s love of music, his endless curiosity, his compassion and humour and his mastery of the art of conversation make this pod a delight.

And his guest list is superb.
