KGNU Electronic Air #1

electronic air - dj davealexI’ve always been a fan of Electronic Air over its 21 year history, and I was invited in late 2016 to become part of the crew.  I will be a substitute DJ and fill in for the regulars when they need a break from the action.  

I have been away from radio DJing for over 20 years and am really excited to be part of this amazing crew, and to DJ again.  Tune in, it will be great!

Here is the teaser I pushed out with one day to go…

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!

Music News: Freq Modif Active

Been a while since my project Freq Modif has been active; but that sleeping beast awakes. Right now there is a Facebook page and a Soundcloud page. I have 25+ tracks ready to go online; I’m going to add them a few at a time–much like a glacier melts–so does the Freq Modif archive to create a constant stream…

And the patch above was my dad’s; he was a Radarman in the Navy.  I love the patch and it hangs in the studio with all the electronics equipment!

30m – 2013 New Year’s Mixtape

Had a great little new year session where I pulled out some old records and had some fun. Comes in the standard 30m deployment in two parts. First part is more of a body mix; second part is for your mind…

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!
