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.

The final Aquatic Themes show, broadcast on 9/06/17 on WNYU 89.1 FM NYC. It has been a great run, hosting 126 shows in total & featuring an number of amazing guests. Thank you to all who have tuned in and supported!!!
