Sexy Mother Fakir Mix - This Week's Free Lab Radio on @resonancefm

From Thessalonki, Greece come DISCOTECA INTERNACIONAL who are PALE PENGUIN and 246DESIGN. Although the playlist sounds like a load of musical buzz-genres repeated after a dozen other labels have made similar moves towards retrobilia, in fact Discoteca Internacional's choices are subtle and better blended than most. Old is Gold- then for the mixers it should be: Seasoned is Pleasing.
Such good sounds! Another thing in their favour it would seem is that the duo behind the name are older and more experienced. When it comes to selection, if the maxim for the content is

This Week's Free Lab Radio - Electro Posé.


Tonight! The French 'music diffuser', normally 'broadcasting' online since 2013, has had their station go offline this month. The beauty of on demand though means the mixes are online for years afterwards.

Tonight one hour of "Deep, Deep/House, Tech/House, Chill, Minimal. Pop/electro" from France mixed by Electro Posé. His mixes are characterised by a love of fuzzing up the sound only to make it clear again once your mind has wandered. These mixes are made for internet listening, while we type, on computer speakers.
>Check out his mixes here.

Free Lab Radio broadcasts Saturday nights 11-midnight repeats Thursdays 2-3am on arts-music radio station Resonance104.4FM.

This Week's #FreeLabRadio - Jellica Chip Tunes

An hour of dancey wobble tracks made using cold computers and consoles by Jellica, with that demo-scene style that defines this kind of chip-tune music. A peer of artist Chris Weaver's since the mid 90s, Jellica joined a C64 demo group and started making C64 music that can only be played back on modified hardware that he doesn’t even own. Such scene. Picture Raquel Meyers - made using an old Commodore64.

Jellica Chipmusic 8bit Resonance FM mixtape Some dancey, funky, weird and cheesy music made using old computers and consoles.
