Ep. 278 w/ deepState and Wandlung.

deepState is a producer from Tāmaki Makaurau. Their recent releases - the MMXXI EP via Sunreturn, and their self-released Deep Summer EP - are superb efforts with the spirit of 90s downtempo and garage coursing through them. We start the show with a blend of her current faves.

After that, we head to Stadecken-Elsheim in Germany to hear from the enigmatic label Wandlung. Wandlung is run by Morten B. and J. Wassenberg. Morten enjoys coffee, kebap, jazz and football, while Joscha is into programming and playing table games like Wizard or Catan. They are also behind some amazing techno 12s, which have filled a Chain Reaction shaped void in our lives. They close the show with an out of this world mix.

Ep. 277 w/ 48sonic.

We share a mix from the original Aotearoa junglist - 48sonic. 48sonic has been there from the start, via his residency at Auckland's first D'n'B night 'The Breaks', and his seminal show on bFM from 1996 to 2006. He digs deep in the crates for an hour. Gus rounds out the show with some captivating and charismatic music.

Ep. 276 w/ Kaishandao and ajhoneysuckle.

Kaishandao is a Pōneke-born, Chengdu-based musician and producer, who is behind the online portal and touring company Kiwese. A few months ago, she self-released the Homeland EP, an enigmatic debut that seems to wed hypnagogic memories to the pulse, structure and dynamics of dance music. She shares a mix made during an unexpected two-week hotel quarantine, which shifts from slowburning melancholy to meditative rhythms and emotional bops.

To close, we hear from ajhoneysuckle, a Tainui/Samoan deejay based in Ōtautahi. Her sets centre nostalgic melodies, rhythmic breaks, and big basslines, and have quickly seen her get booked for some of the bigger parties across Aotearoa. Tonight, she shares a mix that focuses on the darker elements of Drill, Grime, Dub, and Hip-hop before transitioning into high energy UK-inflected sounds.

Ep. 275 w/ Son of Sesh and Marcus Philippe.

A few years ago, Son Of Sesh relocated from Pōneke to Amsterdam. He has upped the ante since then, picking up residencies on Echobox Radio and at the Textures club-night, and having his dubs aired on Subtle Radio and Balamii. Last week, racquetclub released his debut Surface EP. We celebrate with a mix of his own productions interspersed with future soundsystem classics.

Tāmaki Makaurau-via-London creative Marcus Philippe made his production debut with a track on JUBILEE's stunning Magic City compilation in 2018. He recently released the Warmth EP, a dubby and textured three-tracker that has quickly become one of FPHQ's favourite local releases of the year. Marcus joins us with a mix that stitches together deep grooves from three decades of dance music.

Ep 274 w/ DJ Voices (NY)

DJ Voices is the moniker of Kristin Malossi. She's a resident and the booker at Nowadays, a co-founder of Working Women, and hosts Nothing In Moderation on The Lot Radio and the audio extension of her party series Blue Enough on Noods Radio. Her style is inimitable, wide-reaching while keeping sights focused on the dancefloor. Tonight, we air an almost experimental mix where Kristin explores a few different themes and then mashes it together. It will be an unmissable two hours.

Ep 273 w/ Skymning and FP DJ, Simon.

Over the past decade, Skymning has released a steady stream of dense textural electronic music. This music has evolved from pockets of ambience created in hometown Te Whanganui-a-Tara to sharper dance-oriented breakbeats informed by years digging though record stores in London. Next Friday, he unveils his largest body of work - RELENTLESS - via Bankrupt Worldwide. We celebrate this release on Friendly Potential Radio tonight with a mix full of low-end pressure and unreleased compositions.

FP DJ Simon takes the reigns for the second half.

Ep. 272 w/ Moondog, Emelyne, Kassie and Sook.

For the last decade, Moondog immersed herself in the thriving electronic music scene in Melbourne. Now, the DJ and producer calls Ōtepoti home. She kicks off the first hour with grit and glamour, before handing the reins over to Aotearoa-via-Naarm DJ Sook for some low-end pressure.

In the second hour, we hear the raw b2b power of Emelyne and Kassie. Alongside their individual renown (check Emelyne's contribution to the longstanding PBS staple blend), the pair's 420 sessions as $R$ BZN$$ for Skylab Radio have cult status. Prepare yourself for a hypnotically charged space.

Ep 271 - The Mario Cotto Takeover

Between 2007 and 2020, Mario Cotto spent virtually every Saturday night in the basement studios of KCRW in Los Angeles, broadcasting his Psychedelic Service to listeners worldwide. The show was an eclectic mix of punchy dance music, psychedelic rock, 70s AM gold, 80s synth, eccentric world music and ambient freakouts. It was a reign that sadly ended with the first lockdown. Tonight, we welcome him back to the air. For two hours, experience a heady trip inspired by Warp's Artificial Intelligence comps, KLF's Chill-Out, and something like a Late Night Tales colliding with a Sublime Frequencies compilation.

Ep. 270 w/ a Teeth Clippers Takeover, with mixes from Emanuel and Cal.Ske.

Emanuel got a schooling in sound-system culture while living in London for two years. On his return home to Pōneke, he founded Teethclippers via a residency at Club 121. Now, with the release of the Don't Bite Your Tongue compilation, the project has grown into a fully-fledged label as well. That compilation features 14 tracks by key NZ producers like Eden Burns, KÉDU CARLÖ, Azure, and Peach Milk, with all proceeds to the Mental Health Foundation. Tonight, Emanuel channels the energy of postponed nights into a heavy, heavy mix. After that, Tāmaki DJ and future TC guest Cal.Ske (Glass Half Full) weaves his way from house through dubstep to footwork. Hit that bass boost button bb.
