Saturn Never Sleeps is the fruitful collaboration between legendary producer King Britt and singer/artist Rucyl. For the past two years or so they have been holed up, perfecting their craft and dedicating themselves to continuing a mutant, forward thinking version of fellow Philadelphian Sun-Ra. With their debut album, Yesterday’s Machine, they have launched themselves into the spotlight, with a wide ranging tour and technologically informed sound. This mix sees the duo splitting selection duties into two engrossing parts, mixing new contemporaries such as Africa Hitech with classic BOC and Aphex tunes as well as their own Saturn Never Sleeps material. Check the album, out August 2nd on the prolific Alpha Pup Records. Speaking of Alpha Pup - their new regular NYC takeover shows have been causing quite a stir out here. Be sure to check their monthly Knitting Factory events.

The name Mizell may not set bells ringing in every household, but to those of us who devour the small print on the backs of record sleeves, they’re legends, a family that has made its mark on music as firmly as any alive. Larry, Fonce and Rod between them penned the famous early hits for the Jackson 5, ushered jazz and funk breathlessly into each other’s arms, complete with synthesizers, and also penned the odd disco hit, but their impact was most definitely felt in jazz, where they produced the groundbreaking early ’70s work of Donald Byrd, introducing the synthesizer to his sound and laying down tracks that have inspired samplers down the years. They also found time to help put a man on the moon, but that’s another story. Recently the Mizells have been working with both bleeding-edge producers 4 Hero and Madlib, as well as being part of our very own A Class Of Its Own recording session…
Berlin born DJ, producer and label owner Ben Klock is back on the CLR Podcast with a brand-new, exclusive mix. Without any doubt one of the most hardworking and significant characters in techno´s recent history has recorded another one of his deep and thrilling, hypnotic and groovy sets, which additionally announces the physical release of his remix for Emptyset "All Together Lost", due on Monday, June 27th. Furthermore he will play on CLR´s "All Together Lost" night at Amnesia / Ibiza on Friday June 24th, together with his fellow Berghain resident Len Faki, Mathew Jonson (live) and Chris Liebing. Since the opening of the legendary Berghain in Berlin, Ben Klock has held a monthly residency at this style-defining club and has been influencing the unique sound of the place as much as he has been influenced by playing at this so-called temple of boom. He has released his productions on Ostgut Ton, BPitch Control and his own label Klockworks. His debut artist album "One", as much as his famous "Berghain 04" mix still stand out as some of the most sensitive and extraordinary works in this genre. He has remixed artists as diverse as Kerri Chandler, Martyn or Depeche Mode and has become one of those often and widely praised producers of our time. Please enjoy this CLR Podcast 121 with Ben Klock in the mix!

It’s quite exciting to have the legendary Los Angeles producer/DJ John Tejada drop a mix for our series. It’s one he made exclusively for us that focuses entirely on his Palette imprint. Any Californian worth his weight in salt and of a discerning ear will tell you how much of an influence this guy’s music has had on their own. One of my favorite things about this series has been that guys even older than me are still going strong with their passion and devotion to the craft, and Tejada is a founding influence out West who has been going strong since the days of KDAY on the AM down in the Basin. My own connection to him stretches the divide between my days as a hawker of digital music with those of my vinyl selling days, but it stretches even further back to my days of living in Hollywood. Back in those days there was lots of obnoxious trance as well as hardcore, which I fully enjoyed, but Tejada was always that one guy who showed the promise of unmitigated techno and even the joys of well done drum & bass. I didn’t know him then (and barely know him now), but thought he still might be around later down the road. One reason is that he’s never wavered, nor has his label, in constancy of purpose. You can also hear that quality on Tejada’s recent remix of Deepak Sharma & Dieter Krause’s “Wolkenreise” and also on his recently announced album for Kompakt due out this summer. In the meantime, this guy ain’t goin’ nowhere and should continue be an influence for years to come. Without further ado, we give you John Tejada. - Sean-Michael Yoder
