ULTRADEMON guest mix + new music from DORIAN CONCEPT, LUSINE + LURKA are featured on this week’s program. WIDMAN begins with some expressive new material from DORIAN CONCEPT + absci favorites MARTYN + LUSINE, before moving into a set of bass music (gone house), mostly from the UK–a mix actually recorded live at SMART BAR CHICAGO. the first hour rounds out with a mini-set of recent abstract hip hop beats. the second hour features an in-studio guest mix from chicago producer/dj ULTRADEMON, who’s best know for pioneering the SEAPUNK genre/movement–a move he characterizes as “good advertising”–known as much for hyperkinetic music–mix of acid, footwork, jungle/hardcore, IDM and house sounds–as hyperbolic retro-technological punk fashion and graphics. while he’s toned down the image a bit, the music is still refreshingly weird on his second LP, “voidic charms”. ULTRADEMON’s mix begins in footwork/jungle territory, sliding into house tempo about half-way through.
