Salva podcast #189 for XLR8R

“Although Salva is an artist who only began showing up on most people’s radar during the past few months, we here at XLR8R have actually been monitoring his progression for quite some time, as the producer spent the last several years honing his chops in our San Francisco backyard. It was here that he founded the bass-oriented Frite Nite imprint and also forged the tunes that would later become his debut album, Complex Housing, which came out last month on the Friends of Friends label. It was around that time that Paul Salva packed up and left San Francisco for the sunnier skies of Los Angeles, a move that coincided with his songs increasingly being rinsed by DJs around the globe, particularly those in search of forward-thinking house and bass music. As such, we figured now was the perfect time to invite Salva to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series. Even though he’s set up shop in LA, he apparently still has plenty of love for his old stomping grounds, as the mix features a healthy representation of Bay Area bass manipulators alongside tracks from XLR8R mainstays such as Bok Bok, Canblaster, Jacques Greene, and Shlohmo. Surprisingly short on Salva’s own productions, it’s an energizing listen nonetheless. The man has come a long way, and if this mix is any indication, the journey is just getting started.”

2562 podcast #185 for XLR8R

“Over the past few years, Dutch producer Dave Huismans (a.k.a. 2562) has carved himself a solid niche in the murky territory that sits between the worlds of dubstep and techno. While he’s best known for his heady, low-end explorations, he also indulges a love for (slightly) clubbier sounds under his A Made Up Sound moniker. His upcoming album, Fever, finds him delving into yet another genre—disco. Well, sort of. Although every sound from his new full-length originated from a vintage slab of disco vinyl, Huismans still manages to sound like himself. He’s also set to embark on a lengthy North American tour this week—the dates are posted below—so we figured that now would be a good time to solicit his participation in the XLR8R podcast series. As one might predict, the mix isn’t easy to pin down, as Huismans bounces between various house, techno, and post-dubstep sounds, although his preference for subtlety and detailed production shines through regardless of genre. Things do get darker and crunchier as the podcast proceeds, but the quality never wanes.”

Oriol podcast #183 for XLR8R

Sweet mix from Oriol!
“London producer Oriol sports quite the musical pedigree—the man studied saxophone for four years at the esteemed Berklee College of Music. But even with all that academic training, he couldn’t be stopped from jumping on the computer and trying his hand at beatmaking, an effort that eventually resulted in last year’s stellar debut on Planet Mu, Night and Day. In a way, his music successfully updates ’70s soul and ’80s electro-funk, and that trend continues on his installment of the XLR8R podcast series.”
