I’ve always been a sucker for “limited edition” records. In my punk rock dj days, the hot records to own were Halo of Flies seven inches on Amphetamine Reptile or releases from the Sub Pop Singles Club. So when I read that Mike Derhnert’s MD II was pressed at only 150, the record collecting dork in me took over.
Of course I knew at some point someone would post both tracks online, but I own the vinyl and that gives me bragging rights.
If you listened to my show in the past, you know I’m a big fan of Marcel Dettmann. I just love that Berghain sound; soulless and cold yet funky, minimal yet complex. He recently released his first full-length album, Dettman, on Ostgut Ton records, and from the tracks I’ve listened to, it’s a must own.
As I mentioned, or rather bragged on air last night, WZBC is the only Boston area radio station that plays techno and electronic music with any regularity. And I'm excited to be part of the Monday night line up along with the Jugendstil, Green, and Selsyn programs for the summer.
I'm experimenting with posting my shows on the blog, via archive.org. Should I bother?
