This Synth-Popp-Addendom of mid-80s/early 90's carnatic funk, euphoric electro droids and drum frazzled chutzpah encapsulates a one man mission to showcase the electrifying sounds emanating from South India as the synthesiser revolution hit the Hindustan over 3 decades ago.
This early MIDI madras literally commands attention fusing sampled drum tapes, insane bass lines, mutant ragas and some of the sweetest melodies to ever grace your earballs.
It may be Volume 5 (!!) but BollychOOn!! continues to dish up rare, undistributed (and un-comp'd) currents of International pop power that evades easy comparison - chOOn!! me the truck up!
The musical voyage is a beautiful one which throws up all the most unlikely sounds to keep you a float in life. Songs that keep you from falling down, songs that reaffirm the reasons for living, for getting out of bed in the morning. I seek the comfort in old favourites but today you're only going to hear one of those! This 45th show brings new sounds to the shore, nothing out of this world, no robot songs, just new music. You will hear new things like Snails, The Paperhead, Molly Burch and loads more. Enjoy!
Ecstatic to have a live performance inside the studio by Luar Domatrix. From Portugal and now residing in Glasgow, Rudi Brito's ~ who is also one half of the mysterious and wonderfully abstract Yong Yong ~ music is a hyper normalised menagerie of idiosyncratic syncopations, bizarre luscious psychedelia and a surrealistic hypnagogic approach to footwork, house, grime, enchanting field recordings of indigenous tribes and new age ambience. Brito's productions deconstruct and rebuild from the beginning experimenting with radically unhinged vibrational excursions. An unorthodox and absorbing departure from linear and restrictive structures to creating music that unflinchingly pushes the boundaries of sonic parameters to new and invigorating paradigms that have not yet been conceived....... until now.
Either arriving toward a distant mirage, a humid rainforest rich with biodiversity or a portal that is the entrance to various luminous holographic parallel dimensions where a mirror reflection our imagination can make all possibilities the senses, sight, desires, thought, feelings, perceptions a reality. Virtual, psychical and paranormal. An astral navigation where time and space is transcended and you're consciousness can reach distant planets, solar systems and galaxies. Rudi's live set will be foreshadowing forthcoming material on Domestic Exile later in 2017.
I am also delighted to say that releasing music on Domestic Exile later in 2017 and playing a selection of records will be Murray Collier aka GRIM LUSK who is also one half of the illustrious and glisteningly sensual Pussy Mothers.
Murray will be reaching deep into his expansive collection by playing a multitude of music from disparate decades, geographies and backgrounds from dub, hip hop, new wave, post-punk, minimal synth, reggae, ambient, disco to chicago house plus he will be playing new and exclusive GRIM LUSK recordings.
His own productions are full of nutritional goodness. Wildly unpredictable and spontaneous Murray's music can be grossly lo-fi and wretchedly contorting. Continuously shape shifting synths boggle the mind leading on to a sludgy quagmire of oddball techno discombobulations. Dizzying incisive cut and pasted propulsive kick drum patterns to alluring hypnotic collages of vividly exotic rhythmic percussion expressions.
I can't believe it's nearly been 2 months since I last saw you sweat. I felt a real connection before. How about we meet up again, same place as last time?
If there's anyone else, forget about them.

Subcity's website is the backbone of all its operations. Everything we do is broadcasted directly from subcity.org so we need to keep it up to date and fast. Get onboard and you will have the opportunity to influence where thousands of people click their mouse and how they engage with their favourite shows.
You'll need to be able to develop new features for the website, or even new websites. Check out our guide to see what we're capable of doing in a few short weeks.
Grounding in HTML, CSS, Python and Django is key. Knowledge of using and administering Linux alongside Git version control is desired, but not necessary. Most importantly, we need someone who is self motivated to find the solutions to their own problems.
