PC on To and Fro: Music for Non-Existent Dancefloors

Hello all,

as in the past - gosh, for years now - I went in to RRR for two hours' worth of to-ing and fro-ing with Dave Slutzkin. As always, lots of shit talking, and more than a few good records (if I do say so myself). Tried to connect the dots on a few things, remember a few records worth remembering, and showcase some of the sounds that Chris and I have been obsessed with over the past few months.


Ukkonen – Thrym [Erriapo, Uncharted Audio 2011]
Julia Holter – So Lillies [Tragedy, Leaving 2011]
Nike Bordom – Vulmio [Music for Non-Existing Dancefloors, Dial 2003]
Silent Servant – Untitled (Regis edit) [Sandwell District, Sandwell District 2011]
HTRK – Synthetik [Work (Work, Work), Blast First Petite 2011]
Aphex Twin – Ageispolis [Selected Ambient Works 85-92, Apollo 1992]
Bee Mask – Scarlet Thread, Golden Cord [Elegy for Beach Friday, Spectrum Spools 2011]
Flowers – Icehouse [Icehouse, Regular 1980]
Quiet Daze – The Scenic Route [Viewing a Decade EP, Transmat 2001]
Peter Van Hoesen – Rites de Passage (Naeba Variant) [The Labyrinth, Time to Express 2011]
Andy Stott – Posers [We Stay Together, Modern Love 2011]

Download here. To and Fro's site - full archive with tracklists and DLs - is here. To-and-Fro is one of the best ways to keep up with what's happening across a broad spectrum of interesting electronic music. Along with Noise in My Head, which follows it, it makes up the best fours of Sunday radio audible anywhere… iTunes subscribe to To and Fro here, RSS here. Many thanks to Dave once again for 'avin me on.


  1. Looks great, thanks! Incidentally I put a mix together last night that starts off with Aphex Twin and goes into Bee Mask's 'Scarlet Thread, Gold Cord' :)

  3. Thanks so much for putting me onto Ukkonen via this show. His releases so far are incredible and the two dj mixes he's done heavily editing and reimagining Detroit classics in non 4/4 time are simply amazing.

    In general also, thanks for the time and effort you guys put in to this blog. You've put me onto so much great music over the years. I detected a little bit of uneasiness when chatting about it during the show. I just wanted to say that it's always massively appreciated whenever you find the time to post. :)


Say something constructive, bitte. Or if you're gonna take a swipe, at least sharpen your nails.
