Totally Wired Radio Show: September 18th, 2011 with Barker and DJ Medhi

September 23, 2011

Bit of a special show this week. We recorded half the show in Berlin! We talk to Berlin electronica label Leisure System founder and label manager, Ost Gut Ton recording artist and Berghain resident Barker (of Barker & Baumecker, and previously known as Voltek) about the label, the club and  everything that’s happening in the world of future electronica and bass music. He also has a never before heard, 100% exclusive track for us in the form of a forthcoming Leisure System release. Fascinating stuff.

Elsewhere there’s the usual mix of brand new indie, disco and all manner of non-genre excellence, featuring brand new tracks from Casiokids, M83, Toro Y Moi and Two Wounded Birds. We also pay tribute to the wonderful DJ Mehdi whose untimely death at the age of 34 was announced this week. There is a classic track from him and Chromeo, as well as Aeroplane’s tribute Big Boys Don’t Cry.

Another week, another raft of excellent new music. We’ve got the new singles from Girls (SO EXCITED about the new album), Love Inks, Casiokids (AMAZING), Two Wounded Birds (ALSO AMAZING), Django Django and M83. We’ve also got tracks off incredibly exciting forthcoming albums by Toro Y Moi and Kid Creole & The Coconuts.
There’s also a track from PJ Harvey’s wonderful Let England Shake in recognition of it winning the Mercury Music Prize this week – richly deserved in our book!
Recently released dance numbers from The Rapture, Breakbot and Azari & III keep the selection eclectic, and things are rounded off, as has often been the case recently, by Psychemagik. Put your feet up and enjoy!
