This week on the show I have prepared a special Glitch Hop mix seeing that there has been a bevvy of Krunky Glitch type business going on at recent events Id like to provide you with a mix I have had waiting in the corner. I had it all set to go but kinda lost interest in the sound but have decided it’s worth a re check and I had an absolute ball recording this one it starts off pretty funky and ends in Mordor, hope you enjoy it:) Download links will be available soon…..
Also this week I am very very pleased to bring you one of my favourite producers Wardian. I approached him some months ago to be on the show but he siad no and would rather wait until he had a lot more exclusive and unreleased new material to play. I was impressed by this and left him to his own devices so to speak but recently hit him up again and he has sent over a truly amazing mix!

After years with the band wardian decides to take his solo career , becoming interested in electronic sounds , more specifically with the drum & bass …. which used to listen to 33 rpm . Listening to radio programs as world Evassion became involved and investigate more in Break Beat style , this led him to buy his first mixing equipment in 2000 .Learning the techniques of djing wardian was filling his suitcase with great vinyls of artists of the time.

Not content with the fact of DJing from other artists and make their personal sets wardian fully decide to try create your own songs . Initially its production was the software play station, then Dance e- jay, Reason and Ableton later and finally decides to work more thoroughly with Fruity Loops.

His style is original, innovative , forceful , with feeling, effective and most importantly the versatility and ability to adapt to different styles while maintaining the essence , but the essence of sound, the essence of its message and how each song in composing melodies and artistic resources .
