Episode

Richie Anderson began producing acid and techno music in 1992, with releases on obscure hard techno labels such as ‘Kill Out’ and ‘Drop Bass Network’ under various guises.

After a hiatus from production, he began releasing new music again alongside a series of live performances in Berlin. With his latest release in October 2019, Richie is now researching underground dance music scenes with a focus on Liverpool post-2008. He is also examining ageing with dance music and the impact scenes have on a place - the generation of cool and an invitation for gentrification.

Richie is also a classical guitarist and his mixes tend towards a wild variety of genres. The Goldarndest Mixtapes aims to pick up from the cassette culture of his youth, stemming from a practice he shares with his friends. Each quarter they produce a physical CD of music matching a given theme, along with corresponding cover art. The interpretation of the theme is wide open - it could be simply matching song titles to the theme, or an esoteric/conceptual interpretation.

Each show will follow a theme which is represented within the music played. If you are interested in contributing to Richie’s research, please get in touch.

This month's show's theme is Jackin' - in celebration of the liberatory dance style practised to the early forms of house music from Chicago, though this isn't just a re-run of tracks from that era. What the show will feature is what I mean when I say that music is jacking. So for me, this is synonymous with certain stylistic features, certain percussive sounds and patterns, and certain 303 lines... So, music of the last thirty-odd years will feature. Less gabbin' from me, a lot of acid, and just jack-jack jack your body.
