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.

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.
