January 3, 2013

Totally Wired Play Button

Matt Barker counts down our favourite ALBUMS of 2012 list is here! Yes that’s right; albums… we decided that we would pay tribute to this longer form of consuming music, maybe for the final time. This does mean we had to miss out some wonderful individual tracks, but there was one exception. We couldn’t close the year out without a hat tip to a certain Mister Terje… Enjoy!

See you in 2013.

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.
