Phonocast 09 – Steven Tang

Another Chicago mainstay and prolific producer, Steven Tang (sometimes Obsolete Music Technology) has been running the Emphasis label for more than a decade as an outlet for his own productions and collaborations. His prefered style, a moody mixture of machine-driven beats and Detroit-leaning chordy melodies, shines through on this 2 hour mixset.  From a surprisingly sunny start, to some rugged detours, it’s all held together with a focus on restraint, melody, and the subtly elastic bassline. This was recorded on two turntables at Gramaphone Records, Chicago on the evening of Tuesday July 10th, 2012.
