Electro, IDM, techno, Warp, Rephlex, all that stuff. We talked about this stuff with Ned Beckett on episode 34 - it was a really interesting and fertile corner of the UK underground in the late 90s and early 2000s.
It was also the entry point into music for this week's guest, Josh Doherty, as half of Posthuman and promoter of illegal raves in tube stations and other unusual locations. Since then, he's spent well over a decade running the I Love Acid party and Balkan Vinyl label, as well as keeping up his production output and externalising his thoughts prolifically on twitter.
We discuss that electro/techno UK crossover point, the parties back then, and the parties now, the influence of the pandemic, and how the music and the scene has developed in the recent past.
Josh is an underground warrior who does things his way, with little-to-no compromise. It's an approach that has served him well, and makes for good listening - you're going to enjoy this episode!
