It's been a few months since we've made mention of our Selectors podcast on Viva-Radio, but if you were a regular listener we imagine the few months of a syndicated time slot were cause for alarm. Apologies.
Selectors is alive again through the help of guest curators. Three weeks ago Ernest Gonzales of Mexicans With Guns DJ'ed an hour's worth of latin-influenced electronica, blending in a few of his personal works. We highly suggest exploring the archives at Viva for Selectors Vol. XVIII.
Last Friday was Selectors 20th edition, which was guest curated by CHLLNGR, whose Green Owl debut entitled Haven will be out soon. No reason to be bummed about missing the live airing though, we have a mixed hour-long mp3 of set.

For further CHLLNGR awesomeness of the check out his video for “Ask For”. Filmed in a Danish forest, “Ask For” is a brooding amalgamation of dub step warbles, heavily distorted g-funk synths and the distant echoes of dub.
