RIRS Podcast March 2012!

Our Tokyo presenters – XLII and Broken Haze aka Raid System – return for their first official podcast of 2012 (aside from our BLN.FM series), originally slated for February but unfortunately delayed due to reasons beyond our control, also known as life. Still the boys are in top form with another hour long selection into the latest and freshest dancefloor sounds.

This month’s show features new music from Dream Continuum, DJ Kentaro, Jon Phonics, Tessela, Jacques Greene, Scuba, 813, Footsie and more. As always the boys take it in turn to present a small selection each and bring you all the details in both English and Japanese.

You can stream and/or download below or simply subscribe to our RSS/iTunes feeds and never miss a show.

We’ll be returning to more regular broadcasting for our standard podcast series – RIPL, RIRS and Rhythm Inc – starting next month. You can expect a regular show presented by one of our teams every two weeks with the usual guest mixes in between. We’ve got some seriously exciting stuff coming up on that front. And of course our monthly BLN.FM show which is now on the first friday of the month live with podcast a few weeks later.


PS: Shout out to the homie Diagram Design who’s done us a new series of customisable logos for our shows.

New RIRS show on [Free Download]!

As announced last year we’ve started a new monthly, live broadcast over in Berlin on the excellent BLN.FM – the city’s finest non-profit radio station (and I believe Germany’s first station of the kind!). When I say live, the show is being broadcasted live but is pre-recorded. Each month myself (Laurent Fintoni), Primus Luta who helms RIPL and Raid System (aka XLII and Broken Haze) who helm RIRS will take turns in curating the one hour mix/playlist and each show will be presented by myself in regular Rhythm Inc fashion running down artists, releases and related info. The flavour of our new BLN.FM shows is slightly more dancefloor than our regular shows here (aside from RIRS) so expect plenty of delicious dance related musical treats over the next twelve months.

Each monthly goes out on the first Tuesday of the month live on BLN.FM from 7PM CET (which is GMT+1, so please check your local airtime). You can stream it from BLN.FM and each show is archived both on their site and here where we will podcast them a week or so after the air date (we’re bit late this month I know).

This first show was curated by Raid System featuring one hour of their favourite dancefloor riddims of the second half of 2011. As always XLII and Broken Haze take in turn to mix 4/5 tracks each. You can download and/or stream the show below as well as view full tracklist. Don’t forget to subscribe to our iTunes/RSS feeds in order to receive all shows automatically.

Thanks once more to BLN.FM for having us and enjoy this first show!

Rhythm Incursion Podcast: 2011 year end special! [FREE DL]

Rhythm Incursions – 2011: The Year That Was

And so we reach the end of the year and the obligatory retrospective edition. This year we’ve opted for a slightly different format, bringing together our three regular shows – RIPL, RIRS and Rhythm Incursions – into one bumper 3h edition that looks back at our favourite music from 2011. With each of us selecting one hour of music, this end of year show features primarily music and tracks which we’ve previously aired as well as a few additions culled from releases and/or artists we’ve supported this year. We start with the Rhythm Incursions mix presented by Laurent which features a mini feature on the label of the year which is Keysound Recordings, the London label headed by Blackdown. Despite having had a fairly quiet year in comparison to other labels, Keysound’s put out three outstanding albums from Damu, LV & Joshua Idehen and Sully, as well as a handful of 12″s that have all been featured on previous shows and been staples of many sets. As the adage goes quality not quantity and while it’s true that this has actually been a busy year for the label we feel that they really deserve the accolade. Alongside Keysound, the mix features regulars from the past year as well as our favourite releases including Om Unit, Shabazz Palaces, Slugabed, EAN, Kode 9, Yosi Horikawa (with his track from the Nihon Kizuna compilation), NastyNasty, Mark Pritchard under both his solo and Africa Hitech aliases, Machinedrum, Sepalcure and 1000Names. Primus Luta meanwhile also showcases his favourites – many recognisable from his own 2011 shows – in his mix. A straight up one hour mix with no talking it features some of this year’s best releases from both the electronic and rap world with the likes of 2562, Busdriver, Kendrick Lamar, Blk.Adonis, Welder, Shigeto, Lorn, Siriusmo, Madlib and Dibiase, DRC Music alongside Om Unit, Sepalcure and Sully who all make additional appearances. And as for Raid System they opted to do another top 20 countdown of their favourite tracks of the year, though this time it isn’t live. Their mix starts with a short run down of our Nihon Kizuna release as well as Broken Haze’s joint EP with B.Bravo before getting into their top 20 for the year featuring many of the artists and labels they’ve been supporting including Joker, Nino, Rustie, Hudson Mohawke, Funkystepz, Zdot, Bobby Tank, Toddska, Starkey, Daniel Haaksman, Knight Riderz, S-Type, Munchi and more. So there you have it, 2011 the year that was. As always a big thank you to all our listeners and fans, all the labels and artists and a special thanks to everyone who has kindly donated via the Nihon Kizuna compilation we put together while in Japan in March this year. We’ll see you in 2012 with the first show of the year our new BLN.FM syndication, the first of which is curated by Raid System. It will air live on the first tuesday of each month before being podcasted both here and on the BLN.FM site. Before that though there’s one more guest mix, part of our Friends of Friends mix series dropping on New Year’s Eve – it’s a surprise one so be sure not to miss. You can download and/or stream the show below or simply subscribe to our RSS/iTunes feeds to get every show automatically to your computer. Enjoy and happy new year!

RIRS Podcast April! Out Now!

We end the month of April with a delayed show from our Tokyo presenters, Raid System. Following the rather hectic times we had in Japan over the last two months we’ll be resuming regular broadcasting schedules as of May – Primus Luta will return on the second monday of the month, Raid System on the third and myself on the fourth (though I’ll likely be doing two shows in May to catch up on stuff).

On with the music though – our dynamic duo of XLII and Broken Haze return with an hour long dose of fresh new music featuring some of the tracks from our Nihon Kizuna compilation alongside new music from Nino, Tippper, Atropolis, Slugabed, Reso, Ooah, Zed’s Dead, Baobinga and many more. As always it’s a perfect balance of club friendly tracks and more mellow ones.

You can download and/or stream the show below, or simply subscribe via RSS/iTunes/email and receive all the shows in your inbox/reader as they come.

Enjoy this one as always and be sure to tell a friend!

Nihon Kizuna Bonus [34 tracks FREE DOWNLOAD]

After the massive and totally unexpected success of our Nihon Kizuna charity compilation created to support the victims of March 11 earthquake and tsunami, we decided to put out a Nihon Kizuna Bonus album as a sign of our gratitude to all the people who have supported the original release.

Nihon Kizuna was put together in 4 days and was originally released on March 18, 1 week after the March 11 disaster. So far Nihon Kizuna has raised about $20,000 on Bandcamp alone (that’s about ¥1,800,000 or more than my yearly salary) which made us #1 on Bandcamp for a couple of weeks. When a week later Nihon Kizuna was dropped on iTunes, we reached #1 in iTunes electronic charts over night and have remained there for 2 weeks straight, eventually climbing up to #11 in iTunes Japan main chart.

Due to the success of this compilation, many artists kept on sending us music and we have decided to put it out via Bandcamp with no “minimum” price. The download links were activated today at 14:46 Japan time, exactly 4 weeks after the initial 9M quake. So go ahead and get it! :)


NIHON KIZUNAをリリースしてからも多くのアーティストが音楽という形でサポートをしたいと名乗りをあげてくれました。

メディアでも震災についての報道が少なくなっていく一方で、実際の被災地では、まだ余震が続く中での復興作業、ここからがさらなる修羅場となりま す。ニュースなどが少なくなるにつれて、記憶が少しずつ薄れてしまうことが人間はあると思いますが、リリースやパーティーを通じて少しでも、震災について 私たち自身も含めてリマインドすることができ、かつサポートを続けることができればと思っております。

今回は前回リリースしたNIHON KIZUNAコンピに寄付いただいた方々へのお礼としてフリーダウンロードができるようになっております。もし、可能でしたらほんの少しでもかまいませんので寄付をお願いいたします。

RIRS Podcast January 2011! [Free Download]!

New Podcast is out now!


Original post is here:

Our Tokyo residents return fresh for 2011 with their first show of the year including some new music from them as well as a heavy selection that seems to take in quite a lot from the Muti Music label. Alongside this you’ve got new and recent favourites from Arp 101, Reso, Nero, Starkey and more – the usual bass heavy, loud selection you’ve no doubt come to expect from our Japanese/Ukrainian duo!

Don’t forget that you can hear and buy all of XLII and Broken Haze’s music via their own Raid System site – as well as check out their monthly Ustream session (which is also linked and embedded in our Ustream page).

Keeping it short and sweet this month as I’m exhausted and well, I’ll let the boys and the music speak for themselves. As always you can download and/or stream the show below, or simply subscribe via RSS/iTunes/email and never miss a show.

Next up are guest mixes from Mophono and Snatchatec as well as the regular show from myself.

RIRS Podcast 2010 Year End Special!

The Year End Special RIRS Podcast is available for download now!

Raid System 2010 Top 20 recorded LIVE at Jar-Beat Records in Kichijoji!

check the original post here:

“We roll into the last two shows of the year as the cold continues to descent here on London. First up is the Raid System family from Tokyo with their end of year show which was recorded live this past saturday during their monthly Ustream session which takes place at Asa’s JarBeat record shop in Tokyo’s Kichijyoji. The guys decided to forego the usual pre-recorded show for a live countdown of their 20 tracks of 2010. Apparently Broken Haze got rather drunk in the process, courtesy of Asa serving him tequila shots to rather interesting results. I’ll let you discover those for yourself.

Remember that you can browse, listen to and download all previous shows by the guys from our RIRS archive – which goes back to the show’s debut in April this year.

As for the tracklist we won’t be posting it for another week, to leave a small element of surprise to the show’s countdown. We’ll post the tracklist as of next week though!

For now I’ll let you enjoy Raid System’s top 20 tracks of 2010, recorded live at JarBeat records. For more on the boys don’t forget to check their site, and as always you can stream and/or download below or simply subscribe to the RSS/iTunes/email and never a miss a show!

Last show of the year will be my own best of 2010 round up which will drop early next week on the 28th if all goes to plan. Enjoy!
