Music For Makers

Basically, Henry Self has made me more productive, also Luke Stokes, though sadly I catch less of him nowadays. Thank you so much AbstractScience.net

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.

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.
