For our new installment of CST Radio
we're excited to welcome Soeneido

Soeneido is a music producer and DJ residing in Oakland CA. His production explores the realms of Jungle / Drum n Bass styles both new and old deriving much of his inspiration from the early UK hardcore and jungle styles of the 92-96 era. He has self-released much of his own original music, and his latest conceptual jungle EP titled “Deadly Venom Weapon” appears on No Bias (available here). Soeneido plans to release more music in the coming year, including more projects with No Bias and his own startup label Lo-Tek.

Sudi Wachspress' long-awaited new LP finally arrives, carrying on the deep house tradition of Larry Heard while also diving into downtempo and smoothed-out R&B explorations. Gorgeous chords and melodies, vintage drum sounds, inspirational spoken word, and even a cover of Nami Shimada's "Sun Shower!"

San Francisco label run by RITCHRD, specializing in techno, house, jungle, breaks, and other club/rave sounds, beginning to put out more physical releases. Here we have the debut No Bias release from Soeneido (current CST Radio installment) with four 90's style jungle tracks and two interludes interspersed with samples from martial arts movies of the same era. RITCHRD presents a 7" with two club-ready juke tracks; simple driving beats, deep pads, and looped vocal samples to start the dance. Both extremely limited and include No Bias stickers. Happy to share these!

Shop Picks: Soeneido's "Eternal Mind"- straight rude!
& RITCHRD's "Praise" - warm uplifting jukeness

Begun with the discovery of Esther Phillips “And I Love Him,” Oakland-based selector DJ Patrick has compiled a selection of funk, boogie, soul, AOR, and beyond, centered around the theme of love. This tape has been on repeat at CST! All proceeds go towards Elevate Oakland.

Humanherb continues with his signature maximal synthesis, creating arpeggiated walls of sound. The feeling is one of complete envelopment, as new melodies appear, notes come forward and recede, and negative space does not exist.

The inaugural release for Quaint But Extra brings four slamming remixes of Nate Manic's debut album. Something for everyone here, whether it's the quirky jackin' house of Derrick Carter, the hypnotic new school techno of Lindsay Herbert, the minimal funk of Guillaume and the Coutu Dumonts, or our pick, Justin Cudmore's acid stomp.

Continuing our presentation of the Jacktone back catalogue, a new shipment of cassettes and cds are now available!

Founded in 2010 as an outlet for his own productions, M50 (Area) has expanded Kimochi over the years to feature an impressive roster of artists. Immune to any outside changes, the vision has always remained the same: immersive sounds ranging from ambient and downtempo to house and dub techno, small runs (200-300 copies, no represses). The releases themselves are art objects in their own right, instantly recognizable visual language with each sleeve hand done with warm pastel abstract stenciled shapes and spray paint gradients. Cohesive, thoughtful, straight from the heart kinda stuff. We love Kimochi.

Shop pick - the scattered percussion morphing into dub house territory on "Equance" by Shielding

Run by Los Angeles based artist / composer Yann Novak is an imprint whose origins trace back to Yann's father, Paul, who in 1989 created an outlet for his love of baking bread. Fusing both his love of bread and collecting records, he self published his own bread recipes and commissioned an original soundwork to accompany what was known then as "Only Connect....Publications" eventually leading to the birth of Dragon's Eye Recordings. Since 2005, under Yann's curation, Dragon's Eye has continuously released a steady output showcasing experimental music and sound art with an emphasis on ambient, field recordings, drones, electroacoustic and acousmatic music from an international scope of musicians and artists. 

Now carrying a selection of releases on cd from Yann Novak, Lawrence English & Stephen Vitiello, Steve Roden, Rance Jobin & Fabio Perletta, Robert Crouch and Robert Curgenven.

A small press and a community of poets and writers in Los Angeles focusing on small-run beautifully handmade thoughtful poetry chapbooks run by Yves Nuno. Over the last year they have hosted live readings through zoom. The project also has a mix series called "Phonetic Asterisms" exploring the overlap between experimental poetics and music. Now offering a selection of their latest publications.
