Nastina on The Vortex c89.5 FM February 2018

February 25, 2018 | 0 Comments

I wasn’t all that stoked on this month’s 2-hour set on The Vortex. In my mind it wasn’t terrible, but there were a lot of places where the mixes didn’t go as I wanted and I was having a hard time getting “into” it. I need new music, really. It’s hard to play well when you’re tired of all your tunes. I also forget that while I may be tired of […]

Throwback Thursdays circa 1999: The Very First Mix I Ever Recorded

November 9, 2017 | 0 Comments

This weekend I found a box of old minidiscs in a drawer and at that very moment remembered that I actually still have a minidisc recorder. So I took the whole shebang and DIGITIZED THAT ISH! I’ll be posting a couple of them, so here’s the first (har har) aptly named “Alpha.” I also took the liberty of cleaning up the audio a bit: smoothed out recording glitches, dynamically leveled […]

2 New Nastina Mixes = 3 hours of Nastiness

September 8, 2017 | 0 Comments

It’s been a while, but Nastina had 3 freshie hours of breaks, bass, bassline, trap and drungle’n’bass go out over the KNHC Seattle airwaves. Now with 100% more scratching! It only took me 19 years to start learning, but after 6 months of flailing it’s starting to sound on point. The August mix has a few scratch sections that sound like I actually  know what I’m doing. I don’t… but […]

Set from Studio 4/4 @ Q Nightclub w/George FitzGerald

September 6, 2016 | 0 Comments

I had a feeling this set was going to be a magical one. Since my Olympus field recorder walked away from my house, I hoped beyond hope that the boys at Q were set up to record. They weren’t. And it was magical. Dammit. I couldn’t let the ever-so-cute standing ovation from George be in vain, so I plugged in my Allen & Heath and set out to recreate the mix as […]

(also playable using the pop-out player on the bottom of this window) So it turns out I will be a regular contributor on The Vortex. I’ve been invited to come on the show once a month for a one-hour live mix. The slot will vary based on schedule, but most of them will be last Saturdays from 11-midnight. Killer slot! This is archive from the first of many mixes to come out […]
