meow:This is a song from under the floorboards... (Magazine)
This space is a repository for my net radio station news and the like. Sometimes, when reposting older news and playlists, I'll include my recent comments in bold italics. I keep the following station description at the top, since I kept changing it all the time.
meow: glitterbox:Freeform eclectronica: new and old. (Hehe, I'm so clever.) Music that falls through the cracks: electro, Italo disco, synth, post-punk, funk, old NYC favourites, obscure 70s/80s, idm, Detroit and other techno techno, acid, microhouse, bedroom bleeps, mash-ups and loads more.
NOT the same old "dance" or "electronic" selections. And when I play 8ties stuff, it's not the same old tunes everyone was already sick of by 1985. It IS quirky, new, and different, often obscure, always interesting and fun. I play whatever it is I'm feeling, from music for dancing to certifiable chillage and points inbetween. It's a great station for home, work or wherever. Playlists are carefully selected and sound quality is way better than it should be at this bitrate.
Latest station news appears, and is archived here.

It would be funny if one of them called himself Thunder and the other one would be Puss.

Peter Rauhofer Breaks Up:
Veteran producer Peter Rauhofer has recently announced his breakup. On Monday, September 29, the dance music superstar underwent cell mitosis, the form of asexual reproduction found in the amoeba, and split into 4 parts, each bearing the mother cell's DNA. Interviewed by an electron microscope, the four "children" commented: "Well, Keoki told us he'd long wanted to reproduce asexually, and we're happy we pulled it off first, although we didn't quite expect these results. While we're all much smaller, each of us is now free to conquer our own section of the dance music industry." Unfortunately, the split was not even and resulted in one large "baby" and three considerably smaller ones. The large part, "Peter" seems poised to rise to the top of the dance charts, while the other three -- Rau, Hof and Er -- might be more suited to German microhouse -- perhaps Kompakt will sign them, if they are lucky. Danny Tenaglia commented: "I sure am glad I didn't try that."
Elsewhere, one of the Big Three Detroit techno producers may be bought out by a German conglomerate. DaimlerAtkins?
And, after a tumultuous, yet ultimately futile career, uber-faux NY electroclash duo Fischerspooner have replaced the Fischer in their name with the brilliant, yet reclusive and psychotically paranoid former chess master Bobby Fischer.
