A very special episode of Late Nite Tip this weekend as I was joined by Petey from Clicks & Whistles following our interesting weekend at the first Impulse Music and Arts Festival in Union Point, GA. More on that weekend in another post soon to follow.
In the absence of Distal and Mite this week, Petey and I went b2b for the full two hours, getting a bit different than we usually do. Thanks to everybody who locked in during the broadcast – and a huge thanks to Petey for grinding through after a month of touring to cap it off with an appearance on Late Nite Tip!
Sorry for the delay, here is the June 6 recording of Late Nite Tip, this one just Mite and Shortstack again as Distal was overseas wrapping up his near month-long Europe tour. Appreciation to everybody who locked in.
Shortstack on a brief jungle/dnb session at the end.
I have uploaded the recording of yesterday’s Late Nite Tip broadcast on Sub.FM hosted by Mite and myself. Thanks all who tuned in, the full broadcast and tracklist are available beneath the fold.
Distal was on tour in New England this week so you get selections from the two of us, and a bit more explorations in the 140 realm this week.
Check out the full broadcast for exclusive forthcoming Embassy Recordings material from Mak, Clicks & Whistles as well as some unheard sounds from Beaumont, Grievous Angel, Chrissy Murderbot and more.
Distal‘s first full-length release Civilization will finally ship on the highly esteemed Tectonic Recordings label on April 30.
After my first few listens, quite simply, Civilization is a breath of fresh-air to Tectonic. Distal will be the first to cite Pinch‘s influence in his own work, however Civilization transcends what most expect from the legendary label. Tracks exploring a wide palette of styles, not simply BPM, with the unmistakable aesthetic of a Distal production. More importantly the tracks and their arrangement do feel cohesive, a craft that seems to elude many full length releases in the current wave of electronic music.
Read more and listen to previews of Distal’s Civilization LP beneath the fold.

Here is the archive from Late Nite Tip hosted by Embassy Recordings on Sub.FM.
Due to the time change confusion, the show coming on after us ended up starting let which left us the ability to run for an extended three-hour show this time, allowing an extended jungle session from the Embassy crew.
April Fools fun in the first ten minutes but stick with it as the crew showcases exclusives from Clicks & Whistles, previews of the forthcoming Embassy release rom Sleepyhead, and Distal’s forthcoming Civilization LP
We have amended the post to include the full tracklisting as well
For those looking to listen again, or if you missed last night, here is the Embassy Recordings’ March 18, 2012 broadcast of Late Nite Tip with selections from Distal, Mite and Shortstack for our bi-weekly radio show.

We have put up the download for Late Nite Tip‘s New Years Day 2012 broadcast, featuring selections from Distal, Mite and Shortstack for our hair-of-the-dog New Years day stragglers.
Thanks to everybody who was able to brave their hangover and tune in for the broadcast!
A nice mix uploaded today from Whistla, the man behind Sub.FM, which has been the home to Distal and I hosting Late Nite Tip, for over a year.
At the behest of many, Whistla takes a short respite from the swivel vibe to put together an essential collection of classics of deeper and darker tunes well fitted to the colder weather and shorter days ahead. Full tracklist beneath the fold, but be sure to pick this one up. Really, he plays ‘Plate,’ that’s all you need to know. If I was going to put together a ‘best of’ set, this is pretty close; ‘Plate,’ ‘Nomad,’ ‘1st Dynasty’ were all tunes I fell in love with when I first discovered the genre. If you appreciate real dubstep, you will appreciate this. If you are one of these Johnny Come-Lately’s to the dubstep scene, well… here is some culture for you. Know your roots.
Whistla has this one up on Mixcloud recorded strictly off vinyl and recorded in 320, presenting these tunes in the quality the deserve to be heard in. Big up to Whistla and all the Sub.FM DJs and fans supporting a good thing.

Back again with the first Late Nite Tip broadcast for August, this time joined in the studio by our longtime friend Captain Crunk. Good Sunday vibes leads to some furious tagging for the last 30-45 minutes of the show.
Full track listing is available beneath the fold.
After a short delay here is the download and track list for Late Nite Tip’s Sub.FM broadcast on 17 Jul 2011. Much thanks to Captain Crunk for joining us in the studio on this session.
Full track list beneath the fold, download and stream below.
For the Fourth of July, the Atlanta-based members of Embassy Recordings gathered for a special “All American” show highlighting some of our favorite American producers. Thanks to Mite for joining Distal and I in the studio for this one.
The show following us never started so we kept the show rolling for an additional hour or so, keeping the vibes going while we ate dinner (hence the silence on the mic as the show progressed.) Thanks to all who tuned in, and those who joined us in the chat. Full tracklist beneath the fold, with a stream and download link as well.
After a busy spring travel seen for both Distal and myself, we had the fortunate opportunity of being able to do our Sub.FM broadcast ‘Late Nite Tip‘ together for the first time in nearly two months.
Much thanks to Distal and his better half for hosting a small shindig at their place for the broadcast, it was a fun way to spend a Sunday evening playing some times and hanging out with friends, apologies for getting chatty on the mic at times.
The archive of the show is available for stream and download below, with a full tracklist beneath the fold. See you again in two weeks.
