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.
Shouts to everybody who listened in live and who came back to check out the archives and enjoy a blast from the past!
