Electronic music at its finest

I don’t think a music curation can get much better than this. From club heavy tracks to the most far out experimental. Perfect in every way.

Dr. Bieberich ,

For the heads

This is easily some of the finest curation I’ve heard on a show covering electronic/experimental/underground sounds. From dark, spare D&B to current jazz to techno to breaks and even sometimes some old electro, these shows are giant, satisfying doses of everything that I didn’t even know to look for but should have been. Helmed by a dedicated crew of people who have contributed to the Chicago scene in many ways since the 1990s, creating a body of work that stands as a national treasure.

Nicky Prince ,

A Unique and Inspiring Voice in Electronic Music

Always on the pulse, and edge, of electronic music in the world today. With a slight lean towards the UK, but based out of the temple of Chicago, they cover the gamut of new releases on labels big and small, always with a big of real feeling in their selections. Cannot recommend highly enough.
