New mixtapes uploaded

Going through some older cassettes from the Radio Station days (KUCB, Boulder) and digitizing some mixes I did on my shows.  Love listening to these old shows as this is when Electronic / Techno Music was blossoming and a ton of good tracks are included in these mixes!

Enjoy!

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.

Enjoy!

Mixtape: 30m KUCB Techno from Dec 7, 1992

davealex - 30m seriesFound this fun cassette from a show during Finals week in December 1992.  This one actually has some DJ DaveAlex talking in it which is rare for my radio show tapes, I usually paused the cassette as I didn’t like to hear myself talking when listening to these cassettes.  Techno for 6pm to start the evening!  LOL!

30m Series – Hardcore Techno Madness Mixes – KUCB 94

I’ve always liked a little variety in my electronic music, as you can see from the last set of posts of mix tapes back in the Radio Station / Club DJ daze. This was a good mix of hardcore, gabber and, of course, lots of acid mixed in to spice things up a bit! I love acid! This is a show that ended up as part 2 of a 3 part series–a sci-fi based trip to the ancient land of Electricika. This was the Escape part of that trip–get the hell away from that place! 😉 Anyhow, recorded late in the night live, on air, at KUCB radio in Boulder, January 9, 1994. Enjoy! These aren’t for the faint at heart!

30m Series – 1994 KUCB Trip Hop / Acid Jazz Mix

Wow, I’m impressed with myself as I have full documentation on this cassette tape.  This was on my late night radio show doing 90 minutes of Trip Hop and Chill Out music.  Note that I used the term “Trip Hop” before I actually heard the common genre term; so this is a bit different–downtempo beats and tripped out was my simple definition!  🙂  At the time I was playing a lot of ‘Mo Wax and other tunes on this cassette at the clubs because that was my alternative for top-40 hip-hop which is what many club go-ers wanted to hear.  This cassette has a bunch of classic tracks!

KUCB Mix Tape – Liquid Hardhouse 2

This was a great techno/industrial tape; nice and fast/hard trance and acid. I used to love to play at high bpms to get the feet shufflin and bootys movin! One side was Sept 6, 1993. The other show is unknown (not so good labelling on my part!), I’d guess mid 93. It definitely was a different timeframe because I was using a different brand of cassette; which I bought in packs of 10 or 20 from my friend, Hardcore!…

I did two specialty shows at this time; one was Sunday from 1-7 before my gig at the club from 9-2am (that was a long work day! ). THe show was “Techno”–mostly techno and industrial. I also did a “Music of our formative years” show; basically 80’s electronics, goth and new wave…today’s oldie station! That was 3 hours a week show…

Electronic DJ Sets – KUCB (pre-Radio 1190) days


I am going through the Obliq archive and have uncovered a bunch of old mixtape cassettes from my DJ days at KUCB radio in Boulder (this is pre-Radio 1190, http://radio1190.org).  I forgot about a lot of these and am enjoying them in a digital format.  I figured others may be interested as well, so I have posted them to my blog.  I have over 100 tapes, most which are unlabelled (doh!), I’ll continue posting as I find interesting ones.

The first 4 are posted here:
