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 Goldarnest 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 marks the 2nd birthday of the Goldarndest Mixtapes show. The theme is transformation. In the last two years, there've been a lot of changes, to put things mildly. So the music on the show is representative of themes of change, transformation and metamorphosis. As usual, the music ranges through a fair few genres, from mellow folk and jazz through minimalist classical to experimental electronica and downright techno and dubstep.
