Next up on our guest mix series we have Sputnik One! In the past we’ve featured his original track ‘Birdcall’ on the blog. Sputnik’s creations have a striking cinematic feel to them. An element which is intentional and explored through the visual sequences which accompany many of his productions. As you can see here in the linked video for ‘Proof of Absence.’ S1’s recently released Proof of Absence EP is essential listening, going for a bargain 1 Euro 50 on his bandcamp. The unique style is proof that ambient and dance electronic music can meet on the dancefloor.
The mix itself is perfect for home relaxed listening or for party preparation. Trippy, soothing house and some menacing breaks will wash you away in the groove. Find the mix and tracklist below!

For our second guest mix, we’ve got a very special hour of music from Belfast based producer Conor Doherty, or Just Doc. as he’s better known. He’s very kindly provided us with a sizzling hour of original and fresh unreleased productions that traverse the house, techno and progressive spectrums providing deep grooves, melancholic pianos and euphoric synths. At times the mixes flows in a beautiful fashion as tracks seamlessly blend and bleed into one another with an impeccable ease.
Expect big things from Conor in the future then. He recently had a deep, dubby groover released on Tronic Records which you can purchase here. Don’t forget to catch him over on his Facebook and Soundcloud accounts too.
We’ve also just started our own Facebook page so we won’t be wrecking your heads on our personals anymore, check us out and give us a cheeky wee like here.
Last show of the year! Quiet enough one this week, probably because I didn’t post the link on Facebook in good time. No worries though just worked through some of tracks I’ve been enjoying for the hour or so. Have had an absolute ball with the radio this year, feel like I’ve made the most of it but not taken it too seriously, just been enjoying that wee hour every week.
It’ll be September before I’m back at it sadly but at least there’s that to look forward to! I’ll also have to find a replacement for these posts on the blog, will need some sort of structured playlisting to hold me over! Also as a sidenote, we’re both at AVA this weekend, we’ll try to keep posts consistent but it may be difficult due to intoxication or insensibility.
