DECAYCAST #025 Guest Mix : Strategic Tape Reserve “STR Cologne Mix”

DECAYCAST #025 Guest Mix : Strategic Tape Reserve

We asked our friends at  Strategic Tape Reserve to bust off a mix for us for these wild times and here’s what they came up with. Make sure to check out their bandcamp and website linked below.  from the label.

“I moved to Cologne in 2012 and started Strategic Tape Reserve shortly after that. I honestly didn’t love the city when I first got here, but I think it’s the kind of place that only reveals itself over time – things to explore and appreciate that aren’t obvious at first, and it feels like home now. The tracks on this mix are all from Cologne – either by people for Cologne, or people from elsewhere but recorded in Cologne, or both. It’s not intended to be any kind of definitive Cologne survey – it’s mostly what was on my hard drive – but hopefully it presents a varied, disorienting, unrefined world that, geographically and sonically, STR might sit within.”

DECAYCAST #031: GUEST MIX – HEADBOGGLE “Spill and Spell 1”

Fresh off the heels of his recently released synth exploration album on “Polyphonic Demo” Headboggle’s Derek Gedalecia crafts up a sonically diverse mix of archaic and contemporary experimental sounds for DECAYCAST Guest Mix series, enjoy!

Gedalecia: “I started open format college radio DJ-ing in the early 1990s and took a break when I moved to the west coast in 1997. From 2011 to 2013, I had a weekly show on Radio Valencia called “Greek Mind” where I would play the rare records from Blu Ray soundtrack transfers to flexidisc dubs while also featuring live remotes and on-air appearances by experimental noise artists. Spill and Spell starts a new era for my open format selections by way of a modern mix. These hourly episodes will be airing soon via New New World Radio in Moscow as well as select blogs and websites.”
