I am delighted to present a Diagonal Records mix by Jaime (co-founder) and Blood Music for the 40th episode of Forbidden Planet Radio. I randomly discovered Jaimie’s mixes as Marbella Returns on Soundcloud a couple weeks back and was thoroughly impressed,by his hardcore mixes especially. They’re eclectic in a way that few mixes are, showcasing rap, techno and drone music all within the same 2 hour slot, and without sounding tired or forced. In crafting this mix he got the help of label-mate Blood music (check out DIAG003) who spiced things up by layering percussive stabs, guitar flourishes, contact mic hits, analogue delay and more over the top.

Samples for FP004 by Mono Junk are now up on Soundcloud.

I’m really honored to be able to release an EP by Mono Junk. Along with Sähko, his releases on DUM records had a huge impact on me when I was first getting in to Techno. 

I hope you enjoy this release as much as I do.

Derek Duncan has been a part of the extended FP family for quite a while now, designing posters for many of the past year’s events. Besides this he’s also a frequent DJ and integral part of Vancouver’s house/techno scene, operating the Leisure Collective website/parties as well as the newly formed Paradise Rhythm record collective. Needless to say he’s fighting the good fight on the west coast of Canada and we are delighted to host his excellent mix here on Forbidden Planet Radio.
