Why do artist have so many different monikers for different projects we’ll never know. We kinda find it annoying too but, when the music is this good we don’t care. Just like Caribou’s Dan Snaith uses the moniker “Daphni” for his dance floor inspired music, Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bundick is doing the same with “Les Sins”. Oh, I get it “listen!” Nice. Also, featured in the show is new tracks from Lion Babe, Guts, Brazilian singer Lucas Santtana and a brilliant track from up and coming artist élah. So stick around hangout with host Jesse Robinson and ‘Les Sins’ to the show.
You asked for it, you got it… more House Music. Classic House. We are focusing on the years between ’88-’93 when House rained supreme in the clubs. Jesse Robinson digs deep into his basement record collection to pull out some real gems. It’s a special one-hour show devoted entirely to House Music. May House Music never die.
I couldn’t decide between 3 artists so I went with all 3! This week we feature new albums from Flying Lotus, Caribou and Redinho. Which means this is one hour of jam packed fresh music! Also, Jesse Robinson continues his series of picking a vinyl gem from his basement record collection, and this week it’s a track from this decade. Recap: 3 artist + 1 amazing vinyl gem + extra tracks = 1 great show! Oh and did we mention we are now officially on Cool Cat Radio now? Our signal is getting stronger. Come on in and find out what all the fuss is about.
Daphni (aka Caribou) starts off a killer Boiler Room set with a secret track that was unreleased at the time. Fast forward nearly 2 years and the track–we know know is “Mars”–which is on his recent album. Boy, have I’ve been dying to get my hands on this song!
I am Sam. Sam I am… BUT, this is Sam Irl. I’m not sure if this Sam eats ‘green eggs and ham,’ but I do know he has a great new EP called “Slower Bavarian” which is our featured album of the week. Take 1 part House, 1 part Electronica, 1 part Latin and 1 part Afro Beat and you have a 4 song EP that was made for Based on the Beat. Also this week, we feature music from the new Aphex Twin album, LA’s Mndsgn, a brilliant new track from Paul White’s new album called “Shaker Notes” and a floor stomper from Clap! Clap! Also, Jesse digs deep into his record collection to pull out a coveted record he bought in New York City in the early ’90s. Listen to the story behind the record where he ponders the question, “Do I buy the record or do I eat tonight?” We’re glad he bought the record. Listen to find out why. All that and more in this week’s show.
SBTRKT is our featured artist this week. We play songs off his sophomore album “Wonder Where We Land”, as well as, music from: Thom Yorke, Applescal, Rome Fortune and Stee Downes to name a few. This week is also the beginning of a feature where Jesse Robinson digs into his record collection to play an audio gem and tell the story behind it. Every record has a story and this week it’s about Jesse’s pursuit of a track he heard in the clubs in New York City in the early ’90’s before the internet, iPhones and shazam. Come join us for a hour of “underground music for the rest of us.”
This week we feature the 70’s production genius team known as the Mizell Brothers. New music from Flying Lotus, SBTRKT and DJ Vadium. However, we focus the bands who were blessed to have the Mizell Brothers back them in production.
6 months of Based on the Beat! We celebrate with GUTS! No, not the gory stuff, but the french hip-hop group. Yeah, that’s it. Come spend an hour with us as we expose you to new releases this week including BANKS, Shit Robot and a track from the long awaited Aphex Twins album! 13 years baby. Plus, we throw in some oldies to round out the show. That’s how we do it. Based on the Beat style… come on in.
This week it’s all about the beats! We feature the latest album from the collective known as Soulection: part record label, part radio show and niche collective of creative music makers worldwide. Based in LA, Soulection latest LP features artist from the LA scene. Jesse Robinson also drops a new track from Flying Lotus and music from Lil Silva amoung others. Loosen up your neck as you will certainly bob your head during the next hour.
The year was 1995. Chicago house music was going through a Renaissance. Jesse Robinson was at Gramaphone Records, (ground zero for Chicago house) buying records. During the show, he shares some of his favorite house tracks from back in the day. It’s all vinyl, and it’s all underground. Enjoy. (Sorry guys for the lack of downloads. I didn’t realize how rare these songs where when I recorded. Seriously, I could only find 3 on iTunes. I’ll keep looking, but in the meantime enjoy the show.)
An amazing mix of underground house by DJ Jes who worked at Gramaphone and he sold me most of the records I feature in this show. In fact, he’s the one I mention during the show who would keep a stash of records off to the side for me.
You want ‘electronic’ music? You got it. Machinedrum is our feature musician this week. We delve into his most recent album ‘Vapor City’, as well as, explore the jungle inspiration of his music with a rare withdrawal from Jesse Robinson’s vinyl vault. Throw in some Mizell Brothers, a little Brazilian music, a new track from Caribou and a KILLER track from Dorian Concept and you got this week’s music gumbo. Based on the Beat style. Bon Appétit!
