  • MIX – THE PUSH – V2.1 – THE SELF-CONTRACTION OF JASON SCHWARTZMAN

    Dom Fox, February 24th 2017

    After listening to the first weird mix by The Push, I had to dig up others…  Here’s a truly weird companion to the other posted mix here on Sursumcorda. Sincerely yours, Dom

  • Mix – The Push – v2.2 – Social Studies of Loch Ness and a Demolition Girl

    Dom Fox, February 23rd 2017

    The Push are know for their deep meditative electronic music… but once in awhile they barf up somewhat twisted eclectic mixes that are far from genre locked and are highly produced with sound effects and creative transitions, etc.  This is one of those mixes from several years back.  Glad I found it. With love and respect, Dom

  • NightFlight is Back!

    Dom Fox, February 19th 2017

    NightFlight is back with a Plus subscription and a Roku channel.  I can not overstate the amount of influence that this late night cable television production had on my young life, in the 80s…  an open cultural window to the world from a barren small North Dakota college apartment. The resurrected site and library feature […]

  • Mix – Fluxion – Secret Thirteen Mix 211

    Dave Wesley, February 13th 2017

    Great “out-there” mix by a modern master of the dark dub techno genre…  This one is a bit on the experimental and gritty side with some beautiful “glimmers of hope”.  Very inspirational and timely.  Time to do some digging in the dirt with a flashlight.

  • Playlist – A Young Person’s Guide To The Avant-Garde

    Dave Wesley, February 12th 2017

    Re-posted from my so-called blog at Arctic Dub (Sursumcorda): Say what you will about streaming music robbing artists of their fair share (and it’s true and most likely temporary)…  but the advantages of ubiquitous streaming and all access passes to deep wells of human musical expression for the curious and aficionados is totally fantastic. And, […]

  • Johnny Rotten Show – The Punk and His Music Pt 2. Capital Radio 16th July 1977

    Dom Fox, February 1st 2017

    How cool is this?  If the internet existed for only one reason…  this might very well qualify.

  • Silent Season – Faru – Through Darkness Comes Light

    Dave Wesley, January 29th 2017

    Brooding ambient release from the monumental Silent Season label…  and Berlin-based artist, “Faru”.  The sentiment of the release title embodies the character description of Sursumcorda between founding collaborators.  Silent Season’s well is deep…  I recommend sending the bucket down for a dip. Through Darkness Comes Light by Faru
