Episode #3

Detroit in Effect - DJ Maaco & DJ P-Dog Interview/DJ Mix by DJ P-Dog a.k.a. The Turntable Bully

For the last show of the year, we get to enjoy an extra lengthy and juicy program with the ultimate party masters themselves...The Anxious Beat has the great pleasure of hosting the true legends of Detroit in Effect in the studio.

This session packs exclusive, never-before-told details about the tight knit duo as well as personal and vividly described stories about the early club days of Detroit, The Men You'll Never See, legendary mixtapes, The Motown Museum, anecdotes from the M.A.P. lounge and how Paul McCartney can prevent you from breaking furniture.

This month's program also has a mind bending, creative DJ Mix by monster skilled DJ P-Dog a.k.a. The Turntable Bully of D.I.E./M.A.P. Records which is gently sandwiched in between part I & part II of the interview.

Episode #2

The Baroness

 

The Anxious Beat had the pleasure of having one of Detroit's most well kept secrets in the studio - The Baroness. Not only does she add yet more contours to the story of Detroit's electronic dance music community, she does so with an abundance of charm and an impressive ear for techno.

 

The Anxious Beat got a sneak peek behind the veil and learned a little bit about her beginnings, her passion for photography, techno and dancing. Our conversation also touched upon the importance of Detroit's music history as well as some personal anecdotes from Detroit's (early-ish) clubs days, starting off in the 90's.

 

The program takes off with a hot Detroit techno blend by The Baroness, eventually leading us further down the rabbit's hole.

Scan 7: Interview with Trackmasta Lou & Mr. Hooper and a bangin' live session!

 

The Anxious Beat had the most rare and exceptional opportunity to have one of Detroit's own legends and heavyweights of techno and electronic dance music in the studio.

 

In this premiere program on Retreat Radio (Malmoe, Sweden's keepers of underground soundwaves) we have the honor to meet Trackmasta Lou and Mr. Hooper of Scan 7.

 

You better sharpen your ears for this one, as the mythical techno collective reveals details on rare or never spoken on matters and subjects as well as outlining a chronological timeline of the group's formation back in the early 90's .

 

Our conversation also touches on cultural and political aspects of the music industry, church, plans for the future and some personal thoughts on their new 3×LP album release Between Worlds on Deeptrax Records. 

To top that off, we also got a exclusive bangin' live session recorded just for The Anxious Beat.
