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.

Fantastic 2 hour UK bass/techno/whatever you call it in 2017 mix from Peri of Denham Audio! Got him to come into the station while he was visiting NYC from Sheffield. Heavy tracks with moments of unexpected lightness that make this an incredibly cohesive & enjoyable block of music.

Big shout out to the caller who, around 12am, freestyled over the phone to me as this mix played. power!

Handed the show over to fellow WNYU host Lilli Elias, who hosts The Rhythm Section on Monday nights. She started the show off with ambient/avant-garde music. Then taking over is Yonsei, who brought all his gear to the studio to craft a live techno set. His setup is pretty sick — there’s a TR-707 in there! Definitely check out his productions for some hazy reel2reel techno.


Broadcast live on WNYU 89.1 FM New York.

Had Asusu, Neuroshima, Shy Eyez, and two very piercing airhorns in the WNYU studio!

Neuroshima started things off — his songs have been played by the likes of Ben UFO for years now, and his debut EP just came out on All Caps! Catch him on March 9th in NYC @ Breakz at Barnes & Noble Civic Club.

Next up is Asusu, part of the famed Livity Sound collective. He killed it and had some interesting things to say w/ Neuro afterwards. Saw him the weekend after this show at the excellent GROOVY GROOVY party and I’m hoping he comes back to NYC soon.

B2B for the last 45 minutes or so!

Charles from Soul Clap came in and put on a great mix! Love his mixing style, using every bit of the 2 CDJ/2 turntable setup. Included in the mix are killer new songs from the Soul Clap album + releases on their label Soul Clap Records (shout out to Midnight Magic!) Quite a pleasure getting to talk with Charlie as well, particularly about music — he really knows his stuff. Gotta find this Giorgio Moroder record now…

Listen to their newly released album “Soul Clap” at!

Last 45 minutes are an electroish B2B mix between us!

Doctor Jeep and Shy Eyez came through and spun some sick bassy tunes! Really good stuff, and some jungle at the end 🙂

Caught them this weekend in Brooklyn playing right before Loefah — great times there too!
