KUCB Ambient & Techno Show: March 13, 1994

I was able to go through all my old mixtapes and I removed and trashed all the outer plastic cases; now I have three shoeboxes full of tapes to someday go digital with…picked one out at random and here it is. No markings other than March 13, 1994. I’ll work on a set list but there are several I’m not likely going to remember…perhaps you can help?

The first several sets were chill/ambient and then led into more techno/dance stuff later on in the show.

Metheglin: Orange/Cinnamon/Vanilla

Just brewed some Methegin/Mead today (Dec 23, 2011), looking very much forward to this one. Got the recipe online and tweeked it a bit…Bottled September 2012.

Orange Vanilla Cinnamon Metheglin

16 lbs unprocessed honey
2.5 tsp bentonite
6 cinnamon sticks
12 tbsp sweet orange peel
5 Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans
5 gallon water
1 packet Sweet Mead liquid yeast
2.5 tsp yeast nutrient

All the honey was crystallized (yum) so I boiled some water and put the honey in that…after it was nice and warm I was able to with many tries get everything dissolved and in solution. Mixed with about 2.5 gallons of water; but by the time I was through with the de-crystalization I had boiled 4 gallons of must for about 10 minutes. I included the Yeast Nutrient in the boil.

After it cooled down, I added the cheesecloth with the spices and orange zest and pitched the yeast. Will rack in probably 2-3 weeks and add the bentonite then (I don’t have it now…I’ll get it next week, and will also clean and reintroduce the spices.

30m – Electro Lodge

Yet another mix from the records in the crate for the full moon party. This time, some elektro as I know Norm Lones would have loved to hear that for his birthday. This one is solid electro with a detroit feel throughout.
