Lewie Day – aka Tornado Wallace – ups the meteorological ante and turns in some laser-guided, ethno-hypno, eco-lectro jams for the eighth Beats In Space Records release.
The three tracks of Tornado Wallace’s Desperate Pleasures EP sound like the work of a comfortable yet adventurous producer who isn’t afraid to take a simple yet exotic theme and stride to the other side of the jungle. According to Wallace, this is “music for darker times in warmer climes, for where there is sun there are shadows.”
What began as in-the-moment experiments with an assortment of old synths, drum machines, and dusty library records evolved into three super dapper, viscerally contaminated compositions, each one more zoned in / out than the next.
Drawing from 70s kraut, 80s post-punk, electro, and 90s house and trance, the ten plus years of producing / DJ experience that Wallace boasts allow for all of these elements to fuse together quite tastefully and strikingly at that. Ultimately, these Tornado jams dodge genre conventions for a curious and compelling outcome.
Each 12″ from Beats in Space Records features original artwork in considerate and serial form. This 12″ features the tropical creature comforts of Californian Steven Harrington and comes on tri-colored, Day-Glo splattered wax. The 12″ packaging constructed by Will Work For Good features a removable vinyl BIS logo cling.
Tornado Wallace’s Desperate Pleasures will be released on June 18, 2013 on Beats In Space as a limited edition 12” and digitally.
The one hour mix can be found here.
Buy tickets in advance!

Do we have to wait?
Are we doomed to simply roll over and over inside this city grave, waiting for the chinese grandmother of post-internet life to fish us from the trash one-by-one?
We've all been waiting for something new. Something different. It's time to take the steps. Together we can recycle ourselves for a new and improved existence. Attend. Unite. Cleanse one another. Be renewed in the dance.
On September 21st, the dawn of a new age can start, but only if you will it. Come join the away team as we embark on an ethereal journey to Heaven's Gate. There we shall come together to let paradise wash over us through the astral sounds of Beats In Space honcho Tim Sweeney and our international friends Axel Boman, Kornél Kovács & Petter Nordkvist of Studio Barnhus.
Studio Barnhus is many things – a DJ trio, a record label, a studio on Barnhusgatan (”Orphanage street”) in Stockholm, a big blob of vivid colour splashed right onto the grayscales of modern dance music. It's what happens when Axel Boman, Petter Nordkvist and Kornél Kovács combine forces to create something magical.
Axel is in fact the Swedish word for shoulder, but Mr. Boman could just as easily have been named "Rumpa", the Swedish word for ass, since most of his life has been dedicated to moving just that body part. Having built a reputation for himself in the Stockholm club scene, he is acknowledged as one of Sweden’s most skillful and best looking DJ dudes. Known as the hotshot producer who broke through with the screw house smash ”Purple Drank” on DJ Koze's imprint Pampa Records in 2010, his sound is raw, playful and drenched in oceans of soul – just the kind of stuff the dancefloors of today are longing for. His tunes have garnered support from the likes of Magda, Seth Troxler and Brodinski as he continues to deliver hit after hit on Permanent Vacation, Moodmusic, Glass Table, Hypercolour, Tartelet and of course Studio Barnhus.
Kornél has been doing his best to put Sweden on the rave map, dropping well-placed parties and rounding up armies of revellers like a master Risk strategist all over the country. He's played alongside international heavyweights like Richie Hawtin and Moodymann, while keeping the airwaves ahead of the curve as the presenter of Sweden's most popular radio show for electronic music, P3 Dans. He's also been quietly crafting "non-linear techno and house beats with lots of strössel on top" in the Barnhus studio which have ended up favorites of dance aficionados such as Michael Mayer, Jesse Rose and John Talabot.
As a DJ crew, Studio Barnhus has created havoc in dodgy gin joints and blooming warehouses from Budapest and Barcelona to Tokyo and Tlacotalpan. Expect a perfectly organized mess of avant-garde techno/house hits, small but sweet glimpses of pop heaven, and italo disco b-sides your new boyfriend is too stupid to know about when Barnhus takes over the booth.

I just wanted to say a big "thank you" to all the people who came out to the 12th anniversary party Sunday! Yes, we had to do a one day switch to a new venue because it was supposed to rain, but the party still went off. It was a sweat box in that SoHo loft, so thanks for sticking it out until the end on a Sunday (and it didn't even rain!!). And, of course, a huge thank you to Kim Ann Foxman, DJ Nature, Matthew Dear, Juan Maclean, Metro Area, Rub N Tug, and Blondes for coming out and making this happen! They're all superstars! Thanks to Jon Hiltz for doing the sound and Jared for the lights. And thanks to Jify and Le Comptoir for pulling it all together.

Please let as many people know about this change as you can. Thank you so much and look forward to seeing you tomorrow!!! Tickets are available at ResidentAdvisor.net or $30 at the door.

interview by Christina Li
Tim Sweeney started his DJ and production career in his Baltimore basement at the young age of 15. Soon after moving to New York to attend NYU, he began broadcasting his radio show Beats in Space, now in its 12th year, which brought him notoriety across the airwaves. Listeners from all over the world can tune in and hear guests like DJ Harvey, Kid Koala, and Simian Mobile Disco play their favorite records on WNYU 89.1 FM every Tuesday from 10:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Below, Tim discusses with us how he got started, joining James Murphy's DFA Records, and where he likes to get his favorite Vietnamese coffee in S.F. He plays this Friday with Lee Foss, Le Loup and more at Public Works.
You say your radio/DJ career is much attributed to your older brother. How so?
I stole all his ideas! Now I refuse to copy him anymore because he's busy running double marathons and running the Death Race. I like a nice run around the park, but I'd rather not kill myself.
What piqued your interest in radio shows?
It was my brother who was bringing back some cassette tapes of pirate radio shows from London that got me interested in radio. Then I played on a few college radio shows when I was in high school and got hooked on the radio bug. Now, [I'm] 12 years on with my own show and I can't stop!
One of your first jobs in N.Y. was with [hip-hop producer] Steinski.What was the highlight of the internship?
Yeah, Steinski was the first person I worked for when I got to New York. I learned so much from him! He's a true New York character. I think the highlight for me was the job of going through his thousands of records, listen to them, tap out the BPM of the tracks, and then write it down on a sticker on the sleeve of the record. What an education that was listening to his records! It really opened me up to so much hip-hop, soul, funk, blues, and spoken word records.
How did you become a part of DFA records?
That happened because I was working regularly at this bar called Plant on Third Street and Avenue B in the East Village. I used to open up for a lot of parties that happened there. You know, play the slot from 7 to 10 p.m. before anyone was actually there. Luke, the singer for the Rapture, was the bartender there, and I guess he kind of liked what I played because he said I should meet these guys who were producing their new record Out of the Races and onto the Tracks. I was playing a lot of old Mo' Wax Records stuff at the start of the nights, and he said one of the guys producing the record was "Trip Hop Tim." I said, "Who?" And then Luke told me how Tim Goldsworthy was producing their record with another guy named James Murphy. I knew Goldsworthy's work from the UNKLE and Major Force West records he produced, so I told Luke he had to introduce me the next time those guys were in the bar! Well, one night they showed up, probably high on Ecstasy as they usually were in those days, and I went up to them and said hello. I made a little small talk and then asked if they needed any help in the studio. They said "Sure, come on by," and then they couldn't get rid of me!
What inspired the name of your radio show, Beats in Space?
Being 18 in New York and not knowing what I was getting myself into.
Tell us about one of your most memorable shows.
The shows aren't memorable anymore, it's the listeners! Have you heard the messages from Victor [of Washington Heights]? He wants to kill me! He gets really upset if I don't play dance music. He hated the DJ Harvey show because the interview went on for way too long, so Victor said I would get my teeth kicked in by a bunch of girls so I couldn't
interview anymore. It's pretty memorable!
What do you attribute the success of Beats in Space to?
I still don't understand it!
Since you've been doing radio shows for a while, what do you think is missing in radio today? Why do you think some stations have gone under (like our own KUSF)?
Well, there are about three corporations who own almost all the radio stations in the country and they've watered everything down to the lowest common denominator in true American fashion. You don't actually have any personalities choosing the music on most stations anymore, it's just computer-generated playlists of "stuff that works" aka "bland shit." I think that has helped to add to the slow death of radio and made young people a lot less interested in it. So then the universities see that the students don't care about radio anymore and they sell their stations for some extra cash. The whole thing is sad.
Since you frequent S.F., what are some of your favorite spots?
I like getting a nice cold Vietnamese ice coffee in the Tenderloin, then walking around until I get harassed on the street while enjoying the nice smells that remind me of New York.
and more BIS Hotline messages from Victor, if you're interested:

K.U.D.O. has been a huge musical hero of mine, so I'm really honored to be able to feature a mix from him on the show!! I still can't believe it's happening. K.U.D.O. is the man! In 1987 Major Force was started in Japan with K.U.D.O., Toshio Nakanishi, Takagi Kan, and Hiroshi Fujiwara. This box set of their past works that came out on Mo' Wax in 1997 is one of my all time favorite albums and I featured a bunch of tracks off it on the Japan Special I did back in March. Please tune in to the show next week!

we arrived in Sapporo and they've got aquariums at the airport! nice!
that weekend it was the annual Yosakoi Festival happening in Sapporo. Crazy outfits and dancing going on
afterwards, it was time for the sound check at Precious Hall

there were lots of people fishing where we were
we caught a crab and a flounder. haha
after we finished fishing, Satoru-san took me to check out his other club: Fillmore North. This is where David Mancuso comes to do his Loft party in Japan. It was another amazing place! It's only open once a week and the same crew that works at Precious Hall works at the Fillmore North. I really want to see The Loft there one day. The sound system is exactly like The Loft in New York. All Klipsch Horn speakers:

Jerry was one of the best drummers I've have ever seen, but besides that was one of the nicest guys you could have met. Jerry just seemed to brighten any room he was in and always have a good time. There honestly was never a time when I wasn't happy and excited to see Jerry (a drumming, record collecting, touring machine!). I'm still in shock about the whole thing. We're all going to miss him!!!
The New York Times has done an article about what happened.
RVNG also have 15 of the limited edition 10th Anniversary posters for sale.
so, we're doing a Beats In Space 10th Anniversary Party this Friday in London at Plastic People (there will be more 10th Anniversary Parties coming up over the next couple months in different cities, by the way)... anyways, we're making 10th Anniversary T-shirts with the same design, but those won't be ready in time for this Friday, so I'm bringing along these hand screenprinted posters instead. they're 18 inches by 24 inches on 130lb paper. Only 50 were made. I'll try and bring about 20 to London, so come out and buy one! by the way, if you can't tell, the poster lists all the guests that have been on the show over the past 10 years.
Maft Sai caught my attention with his two Thai funk compilations called "Thai Funk ZudRangMa". The packaging for these comps is amazing too. I asked Maft Sai for a mix and he turned in something special. in his words "(with) this mix I didn't play too much of Thai Funk but instead "Luk Thung Music" = "Children of Rice Fields" which is the roots of Thai Funk most of the production is around late 60's - 70's + last couple of tracks is "Molam Music" = "Dance Doctor" Music of Thailand-northeast area (more percussion based) also on a same era as Luk Thung." it'll be something special, so make sure to check it out tonight.
he also does his own radio show called Radio ZudRangMa, so make sure to check that out!
Tonight we've got Strangefruit returning to the show. This time, he'll be in the studio with us.
Next week Sal P from Liquid Liquid will be joining us in the studio for some vegan cooking lessons. Don't forget to check out Liquid Liquid performing live (and for free!!) in New York on Saturday, August 8th at the Damrosch Park Bandshell at Lincoln Center: more info.
Sal also has his Fist Of Facts project coming out on Claremont 56 right now. Here's a youtube video of that.
And if you're in Europe over the next two weeks, don't forget to come out to one of the parties I'm playing: Montpellier, Munich, London, and the Big Chill festival.
The French/Japan connection this week. I:Cube will be DJing at the Sunday Best party this weekend (July 19th) in Brooklyn and he'll also be out in Los Angeles on Saturday, July 18th for the Futurehouse Party at The Custom Hotel.
Nice little mark down on the BIS t-shirts for the summer... all prices include shipping as well:
$15 for the US
$20 for Canada
$25 for the rest of the world.
As you can see from the note above, I will be wearing my HNYSNDSYSTM speedo's during the show tomorrow. Hot stuff! Make sure you check out Honey Soundsystem whenever you're in San Francisco.
Big thanks to Henrik Schwarz and Ame for coming on the show! Their mix is now online.
Next Tuesday we've got New York's own Rub N Tug coming to the studio!
Look out for his new album in April!
Thanks to Kevin and Eric for the recent update to the website. We shouldn't have any more confusion on where to click to download the shows now. If you want to see all the mixes from a certain DJ on the show, please just use the drop-down menu at the top of the playlist page.
Just wanted to clear things up a bit about how to find where to download shows: just click on the blue bar that has the show number and date above the pictures for each show. That will bring you to the Playlist detail page where you can find the mp3 download link.
We'll be making this a little easier to figure out in the next couple days so that if you click on the DJ name or the pictures it will bring you to the download page, but right now if you click on the DJ name it brings you to a page listing all the DJ sets from that DJ on the show. In the future you'll be able to find this same info from just using the drop down menu on the playlist page with all the DJ names.
okay, that's it for now!
I'm really honored to present a mix tonight from one of my all-time hero's: Andrew Weatherall! He's had his hand in so much amazing music, from his early days working with Primal Scream to his group projects as Sabres of Paradise and Two Lone Swordsmen... and all the remixes he's done! He's one of those people where if I see his name on a record, I pick it up without listening.
And starting off the show tonight we've got a mix from Sean Johnston of the Hardway Bros. Sean's got a new record coming out now on one of our favorite labels at the moment: Luna Flicks. Luna Flicks is run by Strangefruit from Mungolian Jet Set and Kango from Fjordfunk & Kango's Stein Massiv. Look out next week because we've got a mix from Kango on the show!
Listen in tonight. Weatherall and Sean planned out their mixes to go together tonight, so it will be a nice flow for the 2.5 hours!
We've got Traxx from Chicago coming by the studio tonight. He's released on labels such as Crème Organization, Crème-Jak, Gigolo, Muzique, Relief, M/O/S, and under different monikers such as XXART, SATURN V, X2, THE GREEN GOBLIN, DIRTY CRIMINALS and some more. He's also collaborated with James T. Cotton, DJ Hell, Green Velvet, D`marc Cantu, Mount Sims, and Legowelt. Should be fun.
also, found this nice mp3 site today that I'm sure people who listen to the show would be interested in: donnaslut
I'm just starting to get through it, but some really amazing music.
Okay, we're finally up and running with the new website. It's been years since there's been any change to the site (originally designed by XXXChange), so I thought it would be nice to have an update since we'll be coming up on 10 years old soon! There could be a few problems at the beginning, but give us a little time and it'll all be smoothed out. If you're finding any problems, please let me (firstname.lastname@example.org) know. Big, big thanks to Kevin O'Neill from RVNG and Will Work for Good for designing the new site!
