I've been thinking a lot guys. LIKE A LOT. And I decided that I needed to do more experimenting in this show. And by more, I mean not more often, but a higher quality of experimentation. My idea was just to use 3 turntables: one with heavy electronic stuff, one with avant-garde stuff, and another with some jazz. I wanted to leave the electronica on for its duration, but use the avant-garde stuff to create some heavier beats and mixing material, and eventually layer the jazz in the same way until I could just play it straight through. during the layering, I basically just played with the turntable. I sped it up to 45 and 75, and then back to 33, and I modulated the pitch/speed. I also picked up the needle and laid it down on the heavier beats in the electronic track, not to mention doing a little wicka-wicka, which fulfills one of my dreams from this list:

  1. Do a wicka-wicka on a turntable on the radio
  2. Have a Zelda wedding
  3. Have a steampunk wedding
  4. Write a novel
  5. Fly on a whale
I realize I won't be able to do actually, but they are dreams, right? NOW GO DREAM AND LISTEN TO MY SHOW!

  3. Jezebel: I'm super happy about this song, because I didn't know I had been listening to a demo track of this for like 3 years, and it totally shocked me in the best sense to hear it in all its glory. 
No Caps:
  1. Twenty-Five: This was kind of a low-energy end to a great set. I could have ended on a much funkier note. 
  2. Out of place classical?: I wasn't sure, but the Dvorak felt a little misplaced within the set, but I'm not too concerned about it either. 
Good show overall. Happy listening!
