You can listen to the show in one of three ways: stream the show from the site using the the player at the bottom of the left-hand column, download the mp3 files linked to in the show notes below or subscribe to the RSS feed for the podcast. By subscribing to the podcast, you'll automatically receive new shows as they are uploaded. To find out more, click the 'About Podcasting' category to the left. At long last, a podcast elsewhere has been listed in iTunes. I know I've been really bad about getting the shows out, but I hope everyone is staying subscribed. Show six should be out very soon. In other news, Burning Man tickets went on sale, so be sure to go get yours. I'm going to be disappointed if I don't see you on the playa this year. Go get your ticket. What are you still doing here?

I've recently had a couple questions about downloading the MP3s for the shows. If your browser is set up to play MP3s internally when you click the Download MP3 link, it can be a bit tricky to save the MP3s. Flash links don't give you the option to right-click and save to disc.
The easiest way to get them is to subscribe to the show with iTunes (or any aggregator), and download them through that. For those that don't want to subscribe, I've set up a page with standard HTML links to the shows, so you can right-click (option-click on Mac) and grab them that way.
Hey all. I just thought I'd give you a quick update so you don't think I've forgotten about you. Things have been a little hectic, but it should die down soon, and I'll get another show out to you. I know it's been a while, so my apologies for that. Just hang in a little while longer. I've got something in the works, so please stay subscribed.
This episode of a podcast elsewhere is a special one. This is the first guest DJ set featured on this podcast. From the beginning, I had intended to use guest mixes as well as my own mixes on the show, so this is the first of the former.
This show features a fantastic breaks set by my very good friend, DJ Sustenance. His track listing and show notes are below.
PMT - Gyromancer (Stanton Warriors Remix)
This is a popular track from back in 2000 that recently got revitalized with a series of remixes by current artists. All the new mixes are pretty cool; I went with the Stanton Warriors Remix because it is heavily laden with studio effects, and that is the type of sound I intended to highlight in this set.
Gilbey - 8 Bit Style (Rennie Pilgrem's Hum Remix)
This is a recent record that hearkens back to the early days of sound processing and illustrates how far electronic music has come. The original work is by DJ Barry Gilbey, with a smoothly polished remix by breaks dignitary Rennie Pilgrem.
DJ Quest - F**k Knows
This track is a really creative piece of music. It amazes me that such a great groove could be distilled from what seems to have been a rather random collection of tones. It's like some kind of freaky sonic alchemy. I was looking for something to bridge the distance between the retro 8 bit vibe and the ultra-experimental record I had lined up next, and this one fit the bill nicely.
Andy Page - Mr. Rush
Andy Page is a technical wizard from Tasmania of all places, and he goes absolutely nuts on this track, morphing sounds and relentlessly careening the beat in every imaginable direction. This is definitely one of the boldest, most far-out pieces of music I've ever heard, which is why I included it here.
Plump DJs - Acid Hustle
The Plumps have been kings of the funky synthesizer-breaks sound ever since they ignited the trend with A Plump Night Out back in 2001. Four years later, they're still innovating and going strong. This track is one of many brilliant cuts from their newest album, Saturday Night Lotion.
I had a dream last night that I finally got listed in the iTunes podcast directory. Then I woke up. Sad eh? Oh well. Dare to dream.
