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 email is devin@wnyu.org.

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!

Fun show!! Started off by interviewing BBC Radio 1 host and DJ Benji B, where we talked about the importance of radio and pirate radio as well as the spirit behind his party Deviation. Then Zuri Marley killed it with a dancehall set! Also had a great interview — some powerful words from Zuri about current events. Ended the show with some dubby Aquatic Themes type tunes.
