Waterways Transmission 6

Sunday October 8th 2017
7:00 pm—9:00 pm

Waterways Transmission 6 came after a trip to New York in the fall of 2017. I was itching for new disco or disco-inspired records at the time, exploring Superior Elevation in Brooklyn, and a few other shops in Brooklyn and Manhattan. I mailed the records back to San Francisco and wanted to explore mostly higher energy tracks, though there is some depth and darkness, especially in the middle with the Jamie xx and Gil Scott-Heron collaboration, “NY Is Killing Me”

This was also the first mix where I introduced my own field recordings. Something I had wanted to do since the beginning, but wasn’t able to explore effectively without the the correct tool.

Field recordings were sourced from:

  • Solitudes Vol. 4, Niagara Falls, Gorge and Glen (start over, wait for birds to start)
  • Grayson Stebbins – Manhattan, NYC field recording

There is no recording of this mix, it may be re-recorded and shared at some point.
