Ms. Bass brought another 3 heaters to KLST, she also used her gift of gab and insight to write her own bios on all her DJ’s. Also we’d like to add we are getting 2 doses of emplate and Secret Sauce this week if you are tuning into the NAPCAST 103.5 KLST Broadcast tonight (9-16-19). It’s currently 6 A.M. and I have to be up in 4 hours. I work way earlier then I thought today and I spent some time coming up with fresh liners. So, short and sweet on my part. Much love to our contributing DJ’s and Anita Bass LLC.
Ms. Bass was stoked on this mix, not had a chance to check it out, but I plan on being tuned in Wednesday for sureA
Last but not least and becoming a DJ I’ve had in my regular rotation, along with my homeboy Alienn since I been working this new gig at KLST putting my efforts into this station…
Ms. Bass really knows her stuff ya’ll. Thanks for the down low yo! Catch you guys tonight and Wednesday!
I got maybe 45 minutes to bang this out, so hear we go. It’s last minute. There is going to be a new Graveyard Radio Episode on Saturday September 14th at 8 Eastern Standard Time with an encore to immediately follow. Lets check out what we got going on.
Next we have a special track from Big Wurm to debut, “Pop Locking” I have it on the server right now and it’s from his crew’s Looney Chunez E.P. they are getting ready to drop. Looney Chunez is after 1000 followers on SoundCloud before they will release it. Right now they stand at 980 followers. Give them a follow so they will set havoc on the earth with this bad boy. Of coarse I can’t mention Big Wurm without asking for that vote for his Freak Deaky Mix! DO IT!
Last but not least, this is a little tease for next Thursday’s Show, So I am not going to say to much about him here. I will say Hard Mike has a residency at Castle Chicago and another one at Sound-Bar Chicago. We are going to play one of his latest mixes. I have my hands on his KLST Exclusive, listened to it on the way to work today and it’s straight flavored fresh as fuck yo! So I figured I’d rush him on the air so we can hear a little piece sooner than later.
So that’s it. Going to be a dope ass Episode of Graveyard Radio. An exclusive, a debut, and a taste of what is to come. Thanks for reading. I’ll catch ya’ll later!
RadioKALLISTI.org Where the Underground is Mobilizing
Been a crazy week, lot’s of confirmations, lots of exclusives. Had a few more since the midweek update. Let’s get started.
Izzy here is no amateur. After listening to a couple mixes and a phone call, I was more than happy to have Izzy on board at the KLST family. Izzy has been confirmed for rotation and is currently working on a KLST exclusive. What till you hear this house mix he did I got my hands on!
You will get your first chance to hear MicroMachine’s skills when she makes her debut on KLST during this Monday Night’s NAP DNB NAPCAST 103.5 KLST Broadcast. MicroMachine has been confirmed for rotation and KLST is currently on stand by for package.
You will have you chance to bring acid and minimal to the masses alight, Jscott has been confirmed for KLST rotation.
That’s going to be a bangin’ night, but that kind of goes without saying. 6 hours of NAPCAST’s drum and bass in your face! That’s a wrap for this update. We got a lot unrolling, so stay tuned. I still got a lot to work on. Keep that internet dial locked on our data-waves and we will continues to bring to the best of the underground we can uncover. Have some more for ya’ll in a couple days. We still got Ms. Bass’s Drum and Bass line-up to announce for Wednesday. Have a safe weekend!
Since I took my new duties at 103.5 KLST I have had not had a chance to hit the decks in weeks. You know what? I don’t even care. It’s like every day I wake up and get some dope news. Today was no different when I finally got my hands on DJ Fate’s care package for KLST rotation. I was giddy when I woke up to a text this morning from the multi-genre beat slayer herself. “I’ll be home around 3, I’ll get that to you.”
I had to come home from work early due which can be pretty routine. I have intermittent FMLA due to my better half’s health issues. I got home, got some cartoons and lunch going for our toddler while she rested and set up my computer in what I call the “Safe Space” to continue the tedious task of getting all these file uploaded to management. I got mad files uploading, the mini-me finishes his lunch and I do the 45 minute ritual of running through the house with him like a maniac to wear him down before nap time as files upload. A little while later with the munchkin soundly asleep I look to see the time… 3:45… Check messages… Nothing… I’m pacing… I’ve been waiting in anticipation of this “package” for days. Getting DJ Fate on board with KLST was another one of those big deals to me. Every DJ I can get on board is a big deal to me, but some DJs are special to me and Fate was one of them. She has skills, character, and an image that makes her stand out from the rest. Not to mention, I’ve never heard a negative thing ever come out of her mouth . This day and age, positivity goes a long way in this business. A hard lesson I’ve come to learn again and again.
*DING* Oh shit! Look down at phone… google drive link… word! SUP YO! “Hey Thanks A lot!“ “No problem, Thank you for the package“ “My new mix is in there, it’s Techno. 80 minutes long, 30 tracks.“ “OMG, FOR REAL?” “Yeah man, I’m really stoked on it, honestly, it’s the most favorite mix I have ever done. You can just throw it into rotation, I’ll upload it to social later.“ “No way girl, let me run a feature, promote it, we’ll blast it through KLST’s signal tomorrow night at 8 P.M. Eastern, Prime Time Baby! Tell everyone they get to hear it here first!“ “Okay, go for it dude. Great Idea!“ “Bet, I’ll get the word out now!“
*UPDATE – DUE TO BAD WEATHER CONDITIONS WHERE THE SERVER IS LOCATED, THE SIGNAL MAYBE SKETCHY AND IS HAVING SERIOUS BUFFERING ISSUES IN SOME AREAS. WE WILL BE DOING AN ECORE PRESENTATION FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 13th FOR THOSE THAT ARE HAVING ISSUES AT THE SAME SCHEDULED TIMES. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
So you heard it! Tonight! *7/8 *Central/Eastern Standard Time! DJ Fate’s Live-Wire Techno Mix will be played on KLST data-waves and this will be your first chance to check it out! THAT IS WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT! Let’s see how School Night went ya’ll
Ms. Bass went to School Night. Let’s check out the action!
Fantastic! Looks like RinTin had an amazing Birthday. So stay tuned. I’ll have Monday’s NAPcast rotation real soon. I can’t believe I actually finished a feature before dawn. Think I’m getting the hang of this. Other BIG news coming. Much Love! -Spike
I finally got a little bit of sleep ya’ll. Man, there is still a lot of work to do, so let’s get right to it. Management is going to try to get our first major block of time rolled out in a week or 2. I don’t have an estimated ETA yet but that’s our goal. It’s been a daunting task getting stuff over, however, I have been very happy with the progress and have had goosebumps and butterflies since things began. Right now Afterave and Graveyard Radio Programing is set to be 11 P.M. to 6 A.M. Eastern Standard time. Once we get that going and then see where we are with mixes and content, we are going to stretch the starting time to 8 P.M. Easter Time for exclusives and some of the higher tier DJs that have been in the game for decades and who I feel in my opinion need more recognition. Don’t fret though, my goal is to make sure everyone get a fair amount of play in the rotation because we do stand behind inclusion and want to feature all underground talent. So be patient and this will be a place we can all shine. It’s kind of first come, first served. You want that big feature, send us a dope exclusive and a proper EPK and we’ll get that to our editors.
Next I’d like to show you a couple of confirmations of rotation over the weekend that have not been on the website yet. We are way behind on that, again, we ask ya’ll to be patient. This is all a lot of work for just a few people. WE LOVE it’s popping off, definitely keep em coming and we can have something beautiful. Much love to all of you.
Stay tuned to our Instagram as more confirmations will be rolling out this week on there for sure.
Let’s talk about my man, Jin-XS. We got 2 things of big news on Indy’s most famous vampire freak. He has been in constant KLST rotation since I got on board years ago. Management is in love with him as much as I am. One of the most versatile and creative players in the game, no way I could do another update without mentioning the dude, especially after the news I got last night.
Jin-XS has a big show coming up as support 2 major touring artists. You can check out all about the show here. We’ll also peep the flyer below. That’s not the best part IMO though.
This right here, in the image below, is what I’m stoked on. He wants you guys to know if you’re going to the show to see him slaughter a room full of unsuspecting people on the decks, then he’s got a personal physical copy for you. Wait! It get better, scroll down.
Graveyard Radio is getting a pre-copy of this baby before it hits you hands and I’m going to review this bad boy. He doesn’t know it yet, but I am kind of hoping Jin-XS is going to let me bump this bad boy at least once on air before the show. So stay tuned. I do have some of Mr. Aseity tracks I need to preview. That would make for a really dope Graveyard Radio, wouldn’t it? Speaking of Aseity, he made public some awesome news today. Been waiting with excitement for days for him to drop the bomb so I could talk about it here.
Let’s see what KLST’s beloved Ms. Bass was up to this weekend.
Hell yeah! She went and saw Mr. Dave Owen! That shirt though! Keep up the great work, looks like a great time! Don’t forget, Ms. Bass has a broadcast and feature of her own coming up Wednesday Night. Read all about it here. Speaking of Dave Owen, if your in the NAP tonight, well then there is School Night! Lets look at that flyer one more time!
Oh wait! I almost forgot. We have a new NAPCAST episode 272 you can check out right now! Featuring one of our supporting talents tonight! Micromachine!
Couple more things and we can wrap this up. Let’s not forget about our man Big Wurm. WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR THAT VOTE!. He has not been around much. He has a deadline to meet with at a record label and I excused him from promotion duties and told him he better go get that shit done! I heard the unmastered version and it’s a fucking heater. This is one hard working man. So go vote yo! Another reason to mention him in the update is he has a weekly night under the name Houston Underground. Wednesdays flyer just dropped for that. Let’s check it out.
One more show I meant to put on blast last week but forgot but it’s okay, we are going to try and get this thing a lot of coverage. It’s such a ways out, maybe try to snatch a couple exclusives to hype the thing a bit before it comes around. Check it out.
That’s it for this update. We covered a lot of ground. I’m trying to keep up, like I said, bare with me. We’ll cover as much as we can, as we can. Much love to all of you and the KLST Family. We fitting to run this bitch.
All I can say is; I’m either a genius or clinically insane, maybe both… Thankfully, I got my home-girl, Ms. Bass who is on the front lines of this thing right there with me, putting in work as well. The happy dance we both did when we finally got the nod of approval from the NAP peeps was of epic proportions. Ms. Bass does not have a negative bone in her body and keeps my spirits lifted with her enthusiasm as she wonders how she got thrown into this mess in the first place. Granted, I don’t feel to bad for her. She’s out dancing and rubbing elbows having a good ol’ time mingling with top class underground veteran DJs, meanwhile I’m in a dark blacked out room looking at a screen till my eyes bleed before getting 2 hours of sleep and going back to the day job. I’m good with it though. Now that we had a huge legitimate block of content with NAP DNB, a solid anchor, our jobs seemed a little lighter. Plus, this woman loves the music so much she drives 5,6, maybe even 7 hours to pay $2 to $5 to go see her friends spin like it ain’t no thing. I see the dedication she puts into supporting her DJs and how she tries to do what she can to help. Ms. Bass will stop what she is doing when she can just to bump or post someone’s promo. Organizing this has not been without it’s frustrating moments you can imagine and still, she is cool as a cucumber. Her enthusiasm for this station matches mine. So when I got hit up by Ms. Bass one day as we were catching up with any progress on anything that was moving forward in what we thought would not be a hard thing to do. She about as serious as a heart attack says, “So like… are you gonna give me my own show or am I just getting you DJs?” I was flabbergasted and started laughing. I was like, look home-girl, You can have your own night! I wanted 2 nights of Drum and Bass a week! You see where we live. Our people live and breath drum and bass. There is so much Drum and Bass around here, it would be almost impossible not to have 2 nights if we wanted this thing legit. We all know, Anita was perfect for this. She is one of those very people that has Drum and Bass in her blood. Real recognize real and I see the mad love and respect she gets. So nothing would make my day, then to give her, her own night on KLST under her direction. I told you from day 1 yo, we are all equals here, this is as much yours as it is mine home-girl. This is going to be all of ours once we all on the same page. So these are Ms. Bass’s Exclusives. She wrote up her own bios on her DJs. As of me writing this, she is official on KLST staff with Word Press credentials. Congratulations Anita Bass LLC.
These exclusives will all 3 AIR back to back then be repeated.
*7/8 *Central/Eastern Standard Time on Wednesday – September 11th 2019. They will then be throw into a time slot, where everyday, it is a different exclusive mix that has been given us. We’ll talk about that more later. Let’s check out home-girl’s bios.
Awesome job yo! That’s all we got for now. Well, we got more, I’m just waiting for the appropriate time to tell ya. That and I am so, so very tired. Much love. Can’t wait to show everyone what’s next.
So me and Ms. Anita Bass had a big feature to reveal tonight, however it did catch a snag. We do have our content and our mixes but I wanted Ms. Bass to put her own touch on it. She had unexpected obligations this yesterday evening and honestly it worked out great because we have a lot to catch up on Fam. So… let’s kick it. How about some music?
So of coarse, this is Big Wurm here. This is a mix of him I have not posted yet. It’s got a little over 13,600 plays. Very nice homie! I had no idea it was like that. Anyways, he has a crew called Looney Chunez. He also produces and makes his own stuff. Down there, from what I am told, edits are the games in Bass Music. He’s got his own thing and is very confident in his skills. I’ve downloaded him and his crews old mixes and they will be thrown into rotation along with everything else we have so far once I get a little more structuring done. He also throws his own weekly, Houston Underground. Anyways. I am talking him up because I would like people to vote for him here, so her can have a spot here. Whether he get’s a spot or not, he is going, and I’m going to make sure him and his crew get as many flyers as I can print for KLST representing all of us. That’s dope on it’s own, but I think it be even better if we could get him a slot, enabling a bigger platform. Pass it along if you are able.
So by the end of October, my biggest stress is getting structuring finished for those reason that have to do with Mr. Wurm here. Very important. That’s why we need as many of the old mixes on file as we can get from our people, so instead of rave achieve tapes and mainstream BS, it’s our peeps spinning on air, and not the ones who are living fat and already made it. Then I can focus on featuring all the exclusives I have. So I am hoping to speak with management by Monday, cause I have a plan for structuring so that is set, and I can start slipping our mixes as I get more of them. Just so we can clear up confusion about why me and Mrs. Bass are trying to collect files for old mixes. So bet… let’s check on Ms. Bass and see what she is up to.
Speaking of parties our Ms. Bass is going to, she’d really like it if you went to this one.
Alright, Alight, that is what’s up! What fucking year is this? Well that’s dope as fuck. Can’t wait to get some pics from that bomb diggity yo! I’m really sorry for the rave jive ya’ll! It’s just with after the 2 weeks I’ve had, can you blame me? 😉 Me and a Little Ms. Hopity Hop went and saw Soul Slingler one time. Stoked to see he’s around still doing the damn thing. Besides the obvious and just by looking at names alone, I want to know who Freaky Frank is? On name alone, that would be the guy I’d go watch. Every time I see this flyer and I read that name I am so tickled. Mrs. Bass, and we get the dish on that guy? Lol. So yeah. Dope stuff. What next?
Ms. Bass has another party she’d like ya’ll to check out. Flyer is not quite done yet but we got havoK and Queen of Chaos along with Ninja Papes supporting. Speaking of Queen of Chaos, or “The Queen” as we have been referring to her as. I’ll let you have a little peak at our feature.
You can peep that party here and I’ll that flyer the it comes out.
So this week for NAP DNB we got School Night in collaboration with House of Babylon. You may of heard that the NAPCAST KLST Broadcast got moved to prime time after some convincing to management.
We got 6 hours of Drum and Bass that will repeat and run back to back starting at 7/8 P.M. Central/Eastern Time. UPDATE* BY DEMAND: We added another mix to the NAPCAST PLAYLIST for Monday Night. We are going to put Dave’s Mix on our KLST Broadcast as well! So make that 7 hours of sick NAPCAST Drum and Bass on KLST So let’s peep the flyer for School Night again.
2016? We got to get you an exclusive chica, let me know when you want a feature.
Yo Giz? You want a feature? We got you to homie. Just hit me up, we can get it worked out.
I will try to dig up a couple more mixes Tuesday morning and also check the Graveyard Radio Page for those!
One last bit of big news I forgot about last night. Aseity hit me up a couple mornings ago and dropped his new E.P. due out October 11th on me. So as the date gets closer, We going to have a little listening party for that. I’ll be looking forward to talking more about him in the future.
So quick recap: ~Vote ~Help me and Ms. Bass get everyones mixes ~NAP DNB NAPCAST Monday Night KLST Broadcast ~School Night Tuesday Night ~Then KLST got something special planned for everyone Wednesday night starting at 7/8 P.M. Central/Easter Time that we will update ya’ll tonight on. Thank you. Have a great weekend!
Attasalina is example of someone with amazing talent, who I personally think is one of the most empathetic and humbled people I have ever gotten to know online. I always enjoy seeing her posts. We need more woman like her, who put their passion behind their art to rage against the machine. This woman gets it and she has gotten it for a long time.
So I kind of lost it today…
I have not slept much the last serval days and it has put me out of sorts. I kinda forgot why I was doing this. We live in a very superficial world and I kind of lost myself for a moment. On top of feeling like a real tool, I had complete writers block and was completely overwhelmed with how to organize the sear amount of content I am working on for this station. I want everything to be perfect and i want it now.
So I am sitting here frustrated and lonely, I’m doubting myself and thinking about how I had made some bad decisions. I think to myself; You need to listen toThe Seraphim Rising record Attasalina sent you. Almost like fate had put the idea into my head. As I go through her website contemplating listening to the record I am completely taken back by these beautiful photos Attasalina had taken in the different locations in these galleries on her website. All the ones I looked at were completely surreal and breathtaking. Some felt like you could almost reach out and touch what was in the photos. Now I am really freaking out. You’re an idiot, how did you ever think you could do this? Don’t over think it, I say to myself. Just put the record on and see how it makes you feel. I knew I would like it. I had watched a video or two on YouTube years ago and thought it was great, but I remember not being in a space where I could dig into it. I said to myself again, just listen to the record and do the feature.
So I put the record on and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Sometimes I think we just need a change of pace to free ourselves of being our own worst enemy. That’s something I should of learned a long time ago from looking up to artists that carry themselves the way Attasalina does. Her personality always has class and grace. There is nothing fake or superficial about Attasalina and I think that’s why I have always appreciated her as a person. I’ve never heard her put a label on herself and I’ve never seen her take shit from anyone. I’ve never heard her boast and I have never seen her put anyone down. I know life has been rough for her as a struggling independent artist which something a lot of us can relate to. Some of us handle it better than others. She has always just kept pushing through no matter what tribulations come her way. As I listened to this record, I could almost hear the blood, sweat, and tears that she put into her music, I was instantly humbled and all my anxiety melted away. That’s what good art should do to you. You feel one way, usually it’s negative, then you put the record on and your spirits are lifted. All the sudden, you’re inspired.
FREED FROM RAGE AND SORROW
I really connected with the title of the photo galley the above image came from. This is what I have been trying to do for myself for months. It’s a hard battle. Being in a constant state of creativity seems to be the only thing that make these things subside
This record was amazing, it has the perfect balance of haunting and beautiful. The production and clean, the snare drum is clear. Attasalina has been playing piano since she was 6 years old. The woman know how to write a good tune. Her voice is angelic and punk rock all at once and it totally fits her character. Out of the 7 tracks, 4 she is wrote along with 3 covers originally by Sisters of Mercy, Lue Reed, and Bauhaus. She knocked all of them out of the park! I’ve heard a lot of bands that play this style of music and they are usually pretty forgettable. It’s definitely forgettable when they try to do Bauhaus or Sisters of Mercy covers. The Seraphim Rising killed in though and Attasalina’s range is perfect for these types of tunes. We at KLST are proud to have this record in rotation. I am actually working on a playlist specifically where a sound like this will fit in perfectly. Also at some point today, I am going to have management play the whole record. I am going to have them play it for all of us that have struggled to survive and make it in an attempt to create things that are beautiful for love but also the hope to be more than just a slave to the system. I know Attasalina feels me there. Regardless how accurate you may think my headline is for this feature, I am sticking by it. Attasalina is the real deal.
They say everything is bigger in Texas, I don’t know much about that, but I know my man’s Big Wurm is a guy I would not want to fuck with in a dark ally. I also know Big Wurm is doing big things in Houston’s Drum and Bass and Bass Music Underground. He’s has a weekly Wednesday Night event that is creating a buzz and you bass heads should take note: Big Wurm be bringing fire himself. I’m still trying to get that vote on for him to play at Freak Deaky Texas, where his crew plan to represent 103.5 KLST as our official boots on the ground come the end of October when Myself and Anita plan to have all of KLST’s Afterave Programing unrolled. This man deserves a shot, but if his dedication to throwing a weekly night does not convince you of that, don’t worry… I got plenty more content coming in the following month to convince you otherwise.
I present to you tonight’s festivities:
Now this is my bad, I was confused about this event being next week, not tonight! So we had to at least put together a little insight to what Houston Underground is heating up the summer nights with. So don’t worry guys, we are going to get you guys lots of slam time around here.
“Tristan West aka LOOPS is a producer from Houston, TX that has been growing with Subciety. LOOPS is heavily inspired by classic rock and bass music and nature. He looks to bring you into his loops of music and positivity.”
Dude has got a lot of tracks. Definitely something I’m going to have to go and check out later. Big Ups!
“Jon Schiele aka GAMBLE is a DJ raised in Houston and Scotland who primarily enjoys mixing trap, bass, dubstep, and future bass. However, has a wide range of genres that he explores and has been consistently evolving his style since the start.”
I almost wish I didn’t have to goto bed right now. This thing is fucking slamming! Definitely Adding to my favorites for a listen later today.
Definitely something that needs to be on Texas’s radar. You can check out Subciety’s Facebook Page here. Also, be sure to RSVP at the event page here.
Roots of Drum and Bass in Indianapolis run deep. Just taking a few minutes reading RinTin’s update on Monday @ napdnb.com will tell you that. I don’t have a dog in this race at all, but I’m here to tell you, it’s no bullshit. I have witnessed the amount of hard work these artists put into what they love. These guys take their craft very seriously. They have stayed consistently putting out fresh mixes and content for years now. Not to mention, most of them have well over 2 decades in the concrete jungle of Naptown, being involved with throwing show’s that has brought world class Drum and Bass to a hole in the wall, punk rock, dive bar for at least a decade and a half, that I know of. That said, I don’t need to name drop. Just goto the website and read up when you get a chance. Let’s continue…
Now, I need to go off the rails a little as I sit here, listening to DJ Odi of NYC, I feel fucking euphoric! From day one, when I decided I was going to attempt to bring underground dance to KLST’s rotation, there is no way I could have fully represented properly without being able to put NAP DNB and their NAPCAST that brings artists and DJs from all over the country and the world on it. It was my priority to get them here first. I think I drove Laura and Jim crazy and I didn’t expect it to happen. So that said, NAP DNB is going to have it’s own night on 103.5 KLST Programing. Every Monday Night from 8 P.M. to 2 A.M. Eastern Standard Time, we are going to be banging out some of our favorite NAPCAST’s and put NAP DNB and the amazing artists that have contributed to NAPCAST on blast. Also, for you late nighters, we will be immediately encoring our presentation follow the first.
So without any further gilding of the lilly, this weeks NAPCAST 271 by next weeks School Night Headliner: Dave Owen
And our flyer for School Night Presented by: NAP DNB and House of Babylon
IT’S A CELEBRATION BITCHES! RinTin is celebrating his birthday at the next installment of School Night. This is important because RinTin asked for our scheduled NAP DNB block next week to play one of his own NAPCAST mixes that is a personal favorite of his.
So first 1st NAP DNB’s NAPCAST Broadcast on 103.5 KLST will include the following: *Update: Dave Owen Along with support from these NAPCAST contributors.
And that is our September 9th Monday Night Line-Up Ya’ll! Don’t worry, we won’t have much talking on this, I’m gonna record some new drops for the station to go in between mixes. Those waiting to tune in can drop by and follow the KLST or GraveyardRadio Facebook pages to get links to some of the artists mixes over the next week as well as the supporting DJ’s at School Night while I hype this up.
