catalyst: soft thump

Recorded live at the station on 2017-11-19.

I loved the sound in the kick drum from a couple of the tunes in the November podcast by Shur-I-Kan. The sound is like what a kick sounds like when a drummer puts a pillow into the drum cavity of a kick. It sounds more like (wait for it …) a soft thump than a crisp, hard kick. So I tried to put together a bunch of songs that shared that characteristic. I picked roughly half the songs in the 30 minutes before the set started (partly by simply choosing some of the same ones Shur-I-Kan played, then riffed on the idea), and the rest during the set.

Spinner of a broad variety of electronic music, but with a core love for deep house, really good electro / techno (for dancing), and trap / dubstep (as long as it's melodic, and epic.)
