My name is Devin Black and I hosted and DJ'd Aquatic Themes: a show exploring the wide range of electronic music termed “bass music” — a mix of techno, dubstep, grime, drum & bass, downtempo, electro and everything in between. New York City and the tri-state area heard diverse live DJ mixes of mid-noughties dubstep, grime instrumentals, dub techno, experimental club tracks, abstract techno, half-time drum and bass, and downtempo. Guests from both New York City and from the rest of the world were featured regularly.

My 100th radio show! I did the math and that’s roughly two weeks straight spent DJing in the WNYU studio. Every week on 89.1 FM.

This was a proper 3 deck mix, starting off with house & techno and descending into some more rugged stuff. The last hour or so is a pretty belligerent dubstep classics mix so be warned!
