One of the ONLY things I missed when I moved back up from SoCal was Power 106's "Power Tools" radio show - every Saturday night, they'd play a few hours of (then) "deep house," now known as "underground grooves" or something equally catchy phrase. HEY! There's a WEBSITE!
It's a piece of crap Flash site so you have to wait for the menus to decide to show up, then click on "exclusive mixes." Looks like they put up two sets a week in streaming RealAudio, along with a (sadly, scant) archive of shows past. Hey, it killed a few half hours for ME, anyway, so I might as well share it with YOU.
On an incredibly tangential note, this is a track I recorded from this show back in (I think) 1994 and it's bugged me ever since that I don't know what it is. I doubt anyone here can help, but maybe you know someone who was really into this kinda music back then? I'm only now just learning how to transfer music on cassette into my computer so the mp3 sounds kinda crappy, but you get the gist, and with any luck, some day I'll buy a CD or 12" and I won't NEED this copy. ;-)
Nope, you're not the only one - I'm looking to pick up both of those CD's. The covers are a hook to get you listening, but the original compositions are pretty nice too. Personally, I like "1972 Bronze Medallist" off of These Are the Vistas.
