For the second program of the year I've invited Detroit producer, DJ and electro and techno bass connoisseur J Shaw to join me in the studio. We had a very interesting conversation about Detroit's electronic music scene, jit and escapism among other things. J Shaw is a producer to keep an eye on, his latest release, Shawescape Renegade - Escapism EP, testifies to just that. If you see it, grab it! Grab 2!

 

The music during the interview starts off with some classics, a few Detroit gems and so much more as J Shaw eventually leads us further down the rabbit's hole.

The Baroness - Interview & Dj mix

The Anxious Beat had the pleasure of having one of Detroit's most well kept secrets in the studio - The Baroness. Not only does she add yet more contours to the story of Detroit's electronic dance music community, she does so with an abundance of charm and an impressive ear for techno. The Anxious Beat got a sneak peek behind the veil and learned a little bit about her beginnings, her passion for photography, techno and dancing. Our conversation also touched upon the importance of Detroit's music history as well as some personal anecdotes from Detroit's (early-ish) clubs days, starting off in the 90's. The program takes off with a hot Detroit techno blend by The Baroness, eventually leading us further down the rabbit's hole.

Sean Tate a.k.a. The Butcher - Interview & DJ mix

 

For the first show of 2020, The Anxious Beat invited multi-talented and elusive DJ, producer, label head and Detroit Promo TV/The Bassment’s own Sean Tate a.k.a. The Butcher to the studio. Tate continues to lead us on the journey though Detroit’s past and present and there is no telling how deep the rabbit’s hole really is. The only way to find out is to let go and let yourself fall. You might just land on a silky smooth cocaine-white rug and if so, just remember to take your shoes off. Our conversation touched upon Tate’s beginnings as a DJ and producer, cabarets vs. the club, the significance of radio shows, the origin of hypemen and mc’s like Detroit’s Marvelous Marv and Henry Tyler and the philosophy behind Tate’s label RWYS - Remember Why You Started Records among other things. Tate also announced the upcoming tribute, vinyl only release, for much loved and missed Erotek a.k.a. Andray Brown/Check it out: https://soundcloud.com/user-887514302


Programschedule:

The show starts off with the menacing robotic acid track A.C.F.M. by Folsom & Tate, also heard in DJ Stingray’s electrifying set at last year’s Boiler Room Festival. Tate then takes over and starts the first part of his DJ mix with Theo Parrish’s beautiful track This is for you with Maurissa Rose. About 36 min in, Tate steps away from the turntables for a bit to answer some questions and once again, we get to experience more vivid stories from Detroit - the good, the bad and some of the stuff in between. Part two of Sean Tate’s DJ mix quickly transforms into one of those rare club nights...real deep and soulful and where one can be really free.

The A.M.  - Interview and DJ Mix 

For the second show of the year The Anxious Beat invited rave veteran, electro/techno appreciator and classically trained violinist The A.M. to the studio. This episode starts off with Ann-Marie’s perhaps first serious encounter with music—a journey which begins when she hears classical violin for the first time at a very early age, to years later when she discovered house music by listening to Detroit radio station WJLB late at night, accompanied by her younger sister, multitalented writer, host and DJ of Underground & Black blog and NTS show, Ash Lauryn. 

 

Taking a bit of a different route than her sister, The A.M. has come to favor the darker, harder category of electronic music, Detroit electro and techno being her preferred weapon of choice. Frequently attending parties and underground raves throughout the years undeniably shaped the ears of The A.M., providing her mixes with that unique Detroit funk, hard-hitting no-bullshit aesthetic. Our conversation also touched on finding a sense of home in the rave scene, overcoming fears and insecurities, the lack of division in the dance community in the past compared to today, Movement Festival (DEMF), losing younger siblings at massive underground parties and embracing your darker side, and much more. The A.M. takes over the second part of the program, showing us just how dark, deep and bottomless the rabbit hole really is.

 

(The A.M. correction: The after hours club mentioned as Half Past Three in the interview was in fact called Better Days)

DJ Roach - Interview and DJ Mix 

These are anxious times indeed..and for the first time, this month's guest did not make it over to the studio... Fortunately not due to any virus related issues but just because time, as always, is one big ungenerous pimp. For the third show of the year The Anxious Beat had the pleasure of interviewing Southwest Detroit's own DJ Roach (Raul Rocha also known as DJ Roach 313) - DJ, producer, founder of Nuestro Futuro Records together with Ray 7 (Raphael Merriweathers Jr. from UR also known as 051, The Beat Mechanic, M.I.A. and The Unknown Soilder) and driven originator of the annual local Detroit party - Tec Troit Electronic Music Festival.

 

The show starts off with castanets crackling in the heavy and infectious track Remember Where You Came From (Remember Your Culture) by DJ Roach and Ray 7's synergetic rhythm duo called NF-2. Roach starts his story at his childhood home, his father being a musician and how he was surrounded by music and instruments from an early age. We also get to learn about the life changing experience of seeing The Wizard perform behind 4 decks at The Stratford Theater back in 1985, getting into DJing along with his brother in 1988, latin freestyle and the beginnings of Tec Troit among many other things. Last but not least we get to let loose and rid all quarantine bullshit to DJ Roach's master skill techno and acid drippin' DJ Mix. (Photo by Marie Staggat)
