James the Seventh Sun Guest Mix

This month, Dead Hound Radio's airwaves are graciously commandeered by Glasgow-based acid techno wizard James the Seventh Sun. The show is a playful and adventurous mix of bouncy acid, hard-hitting techno, and lovely swirling ambient passages (amounting to a little microcosm of his own material).

Sacred Keys Guest Mix

This month, we are very excited to be swapping shows with Rory Young Cotter of EHFM's 'Door Ajar,' a show which brings Edinburgh listeners the deepest cuts of the avant-garde. Following Dead Hound's guest mix for his show on Wednesday, Rory presents a guest mix for us under his pseudonym Sacred Keys. Centring around his own material, this mix veers from drone/ambient into electronic beats, glitch and noise. We're super happy to be collaborating with an amazing local station and a fantastic new musician - this certainly won't be the last crossover between Door Ajar/Sacred Keys and Dead Hound!

Sonia Killman Guest Mix

This month, Glasgow-based sound designer, composer and researcher Sonia Killmann offers a mesmerising guest mix for Dead Hound.

Episode 16 - Whole Foods Kids Guest Mix

This month, Dead Hound Radio features another guest mix, this time curated by Rob Bazaral of transatlantic dance-punk outfit Whole Foods Kids. In Rob's own words, the episode is 'a mix of stuff that we listened to a lot before recording, stuff that first taught us how to play and original influences, stuff that was more an influence on early stuff we did and things I aim for a bit in the future.' WFK's David Lynch-inspired EP Sometimes My Arms Bend Back was released via Dead Hound last November.

Black Jazz Records Special

This month's Dead Hound show presents something a bit different: a tribute to one of the greatest underground labels of the 20th Century: Black Jazz Records. Founded in 1969 by Gene Russell Dick Schory, Black Jazz pioneered a distinct sound and aesthetic that would go on to influence countless developments in spiritual jazz, funk, soul and beyond. Although Dead Hound isn't jazz-focused (as it stands!) Black Jazz has been a huge influence on our output in many ways. So, seek refuge from our usual noise with some otherworldly tones from The Awakening, Walter Bishop Jr., Rudolph Johnson and more...

14 - Eternal Villainy (MF DOOM Special)

The show's title is "Eternal Villainy (MF DOOM Special)" and as the title suggests it's a tribute to the rapper who passed away last year. Here's some info: "Dead Hound's first show of 2021 pays tribute to the legendary MF DOOM, whose tragic death was announced on December 31st. Despite the label not necessarily issuing a lot of hip-hop music, DOOM's work, aesthetic and productiveness have been extremely inspirational to us over the years. The show features some of the rapper's greatest verses, features and beats, from Madvillain to DANGERDOOM. RIP to truly one of the greatest there ever was."

This week, the Dead Hound broadcast is commandeered by another Edinburgh underground stalwart: Austin Barnes A.K.A. Berlin Anatomy, Piss Smoke & Narco State Machine. Austin has been active on the Edinburgh circuit for around a year now, with a plethora of releases on Dead Hound displaying his increasingly diverse brand of loose-centred noise-pop.
