NOMAD052: Summer Reggae

Bernard Steer comes with an excellent summer time Reggae selection. Given that it’s actually been fully sunny for multiple days in Manchester, this seems highly appropriate!

NOMAD051: Super Rudeboy Badman Hard Tunes

I’ve been into stupid jump-up D&B tracks for as many years as I care to remember, so thought it was about time I sorted out the best ones and did a bit of a mix.

Don’t get me wrong: I am aware this is not big and it’s not clever. I do appreciate the more thoughtfull and trendy Bass genres (see my Backness mix for instance). However. Sometimes it is necessary to rinse it out as hard as possible and that sometimes appears to be now. Enjoy!

NOMAD050: Qxtc

50th podcast? My word. To celebrate, here’s a great mix of original material by the immensely talented QXTC. As well as making some incredibly good music, he also paints and films you know. What an annoyingly gifted cunt. Anyway, give it a listen and bask in it’s musical glory. Great stuff 🙂

NOMAD049: Venezuela

Simon P Scarlett brings us some great Venezuelan vibes that make perfect summer time listening. Don’t know about you, but I know fuck all about the Venezuelan music scene. This definitely makes a good starting point. Turns out there’s rather a lot of good tunes over there!


NOMAD048: Voodoo Electro

Redub / Herbal Sessions’ very own Watoo drops a cracking mix of, as the title says, Voodoo Electro. The whole set sounds beautifully fresh and retro at the same time, with lots of analog synth noises interspersed with heavy subs and futuristic sample cut-ups. Enjoy! …and catch him every other Tuesday live on DubTerrain Radio.

NOMAD047: Backness

After a long hiatus, Nomad Radio returns with a brand spanking new site and some brand spanking new tunes to go with it!

This mix fondles various down-with-the-kids genres such as Juke/Footwork, Post-grime, Dubstep, Funky and whatever the fuck else people are calling bass music now-a-days. Spanking! If you like it, please share the link on the interwebs wherever you can. We need to get back to the top of google where we rightly belong. Swish!

NOMAD046: Treetops McPhoenix

My good god. This is one of the most wonderfully strange things I have ever heard. I can’t even begin to describe it. From Treetops himself:

An extremely eclectic mix which has the audacity to combine yodelling with Neue Deutsche Welle, modern classical with Ghanaian tribal music, and dark cabaret with BBC sporting theme tunes.

NOMAD044: Contrasts

An eclectic mix of contrasting sounds, from Noise Rock to surrealistic Folk and back again, via electronic gut wobblers and Frank Sidebottom. We’re on a new server now btw. It’s to make way for the increasingly large amount of MP3 here, so if you notice anything weird happening, please post in the comments. As always, enjoy!
