#103 Fracture: Pirate radio and the Nuum, "it was a community-based thing"
Listen now
And we're back! Thanks so much for you patience - the last couple of weeks have been a total nightmare for me actually but I'm happy to say that normal service can now be resumed.  Head over to the Hotflush Bandcamp where we have unveiled a new policy of 'Pay What You Feel' for all catalogue items! Vinyl, CD, tapes, tees, mugs... Name your price on everything. This does NOT cover new releases, as we don't want to be undermining the record shop ecosystem, and digital downloads still have a floor price - but you get free downloads with the physical item anyway. Get involved! Fracture is a London DnB vet who cut his teeth in the early Jungle clubs and has been playing on pirate since the late 90s. He was involved in the early Dubstep scene as part of Compound One, and been running a great label called Astrophonica since 2009.  On that label they've released some really great music from important producers including Sully, Sam Binga, and Nikki Nair.  We talk about his musical philosophy, the pros and cons of the DnB scene, and the problems with underground music more generally today. We also discuss his pirate radio history project, '0860'.   If you're into what we're doing here on the pod then you can support the show on Patreon! There are two tiers - "Solidarity" for $4 a month, which features the show without ads, regular bonus podcasts, and extra content. And "Musicality" which for a mere $10 a month gets you all the music we release on Hotflush and affiliate labels AND other music too, some of which never comes out anywhere else. You can also make a one-off donation to the podcast using either a credit or debit card, or with Paypal. Head over to scubaofficial.io/support. Plus there's also a private area for Patreon supporters in the Hotflush Discord Server... but anyone can join the conversation there in the public channels, so please do! Listen to all (most of) the music discussed on the show via the Not A Diving Podcast Spotify playlist Follow Scuba: twitter instagram bandcamp spotify apple music beatport Hosted on Acast.
