Apropos of the fact that I'm listening to Ghislain Poirier's new full length 'Breakupdown' on Chocolate Industries right now - I was at the Baltic Room last Tuesday to see Dragons Eye Recording label-mates Wyndel Hunt and Hakea at Oscillate* and got to speaking to the doorman there, who I happened to know was DJ Collage, but had never met before. He was telling me how excited he was for his collaboration with Ghislain Poirier, 'Mic Diplomat', a ragga toasted anthem dropped over slightly menacing, futuristic ragga beats, to be coming out on the Montreal producer's new album, 'Breakupdown' the next day. Long story short - I get the weekly new music update email from the station the next day and what features prominently, but a glowing review of the album? Nice. Expect me to be thrashing this LP for a few months. Lots of fantastic beats and very diverse, all the while melding ragga, abstract hip hop, and experimental electronics - perfect for the show.

*Tonight sees Jerry Abstract and Tomas Jirku at Oscillate. Sweet!

I will have a full two hours today to play you music that I like. I just went through my records pulling out some favorites from the more danceable section of my collection, mostly pretty straight-up 4/4 stuff. Some might call it 'tech-house'. Playhouse, Orac dominate. I've got a feeling it's going to be fun time in the studio today.

Broken beats will be the theme of todays show. Chicago native Terso (Decibel, Thermal Recs) will be my guest for a live set of his signature dark breaky sounds. In keeping with that theme I'll be heating up the studio before hand with some grimey steppy dubbed-out tech action.
