FOR KIDS is a collection of old Bee Ampersand tracks from 2-3 years ago which never saw release.

Willow Beats – Blue (Bee Ampersand remix) by Chris

Bee Ampersand remixes fellow Fuck the Radio Collective members Willow Beats‘ track Blue into a simplistic chilled house track.

Leaks De Landa EP Launch by Chris

At age 19, Thomas Guida aka. Leaks is the youngest member of the Fuck the Radio Collective. His De Landa EP (out on the free digital label Absent Fever) was put out late May, and is holding up to be one of my favourite releases of the year (check out the brilliant I’m Glad You’re Still Here). He’s finally got a release party together with supports from Audego, Surf Dad and fellow brilliant Fuck the Radio artists Alta.

If you are in Melbourne on the 19th, you can head down to Ding Dong lounge, where Guida will be giving away 100 limited physical copies of the EP for free, and also playing for you live. As you can imagine, I have seen him live before and just a hint: it’s a good gig to bring a special guy/girl friend along to for holding hands and looking into each-other’s eyes n shit.

OR just go with your 100% nothing suss platonic mates and chill out to some soothing beats either way.

Willow Beats – Alchemy EP by Chris

Fuck the Radio Collective home boys Willow Beats have been super busy, returning from a sold-out national tour to support the release of their second EP (below).

I had a quick exchange with Narayana earlier,

There are some tracks on the EP that I started a year ago, some that came together in the last few weeks!
We tried much more experimenting with this EP. There are a-lot more recorded samples and things like the water drops in Elemental (recorded in my bath tub). A-lot more attention was paid to the individual sounds as well. I wanted every small aspect to be as good as I could make it.
The tour was sold out which was incredible! It was amazing to see the amount of support we have! You don’t really realise from Facebook etc but when you see support in numbers its incredible.

Leaks – I’m Glad You’re Still Here by Chris

Fuck the Radio Collective homeboy Leaks went quiet for a bit while travelling.

Good to have him back. This track gets my BRILLIANCE tag.

Willow Beats – Alchemy preview by Chris

Fuck the Radio Collective artists Willow Beats have just dropped a preview video for their new single Alchemy to be released on the 11th of March.

If you live in Melbourne you can catch them live throughout March as they play through their Workers Club residency, with support from Allday and other FTR Collective artists ColourwavesAlta and Yosemite.

Fuck the Radio Collective artist Flash Forest is heading off to the United States soon and next Friday there’s going to be a big party to see him off.

Support from his mates The Zanes and The Mighty Boys as well as fellow Fuck the Radio producer/dj Bee Ampersand.


If you read this blog- I’m going to make a very well-educated guess that you’ll fall in-love with his music if you haven’t already. Hit play below, then click attending on the Facebook event above to show some love.

FucktheRadioBrilliance Vol 2

Happy New Year once again!

2012 was a big year for Fuck the Radio and I feel a big year for music in general.

I know 2013 will be even bigger and I’m already so eager to get started that I’m going to keep this short. Last year on New Years I released a mixtape featuring every song I had tagged brilliant thus far. Here’s Volume 2, a little late (still recovering from my New Years festivities) with all of my favourite tracks which appeared on the blog in 2012.



Chrome Sparks – Still Sleeping ft. Steffaloo

Flash Forest – One Night

Tree – Warrior

XXYYXX – About You

A Bliss Abyss – Moksha

Sorrow – 1988

Capeface – I Go

Alta – Stay Awhile

You can find the 2012 catalogue of mediafire uploaded tracks here (keep in mind some of them I provided bandcamp and soundcloud downloads in place of mediafire): http://www.mediafire.com/?alsy8lxn5m9eh

Fuck the Radio Party by Chris


It is with huge pleasure that I (finally) announce the FUCK THE RADIO monthly party in Melbourne this week on this blog.

If you live in Melbourne, Australia, come on down to the intimate Soft Belly Bar and share a drink with the family. You’ll know that everyone around you has amazing taste in music!

Willowbeats is an act who hasn’t appeared on this blog yet because I’ve been saving them for something really special. Finally that something special is here- but don’t take my word for it, check ’em out here:


Squarehead is a great psychedelic/progressive act with some really beautiful tracks. I’m stoked to have him play live:


Bee Ampersand is a familiar name to long-time readers, mixing all of the much-adored mix-tapes.

You can find more infor about the event on the Facebook page here:


And even read about it on Acclaim Magazine’s website here:


Unfortunately, I will be taking the remainder of the week off from posting music to the blog. I know I have slowed my post-rate lately, but that was all due to the work that had to be put into this event to make sure it happened in the best way possible. After this weekend posts will return to their usual rate. There are bigger and better things on their way, this party is just the beginning…


Fuck the Radio Anesthetic Mixtape by Chris

Here’s the NINTH FUCK THE RADIO mixtape, titled Anesthetic (although I promise it wont put you to sleep). Featuring 15 great tracks from artists all over the world; there’s a focus on future-beat/trip-hop this time, which will keep you head-bopping along in the car/train/bedroom/wherever you listen to music.

It’s free, so you really can’t lose. Get on it.


Fuck the Radio Brilliance Vol. 1 by Chris

Happy New Year!

It’s been an exciting year for Fuck the Radio in 2011, more than tripling the average daily reader count- receiving  several DMCA complaints, and the launch (and subsequent censorship) of the Fuck The Radio Radio Show.

Regular readers will be familiar with the coveted ‘brilliance’ tag on the blog- awarded to tracks that are truly in a class of their own. For new years this year I’ve collected said brilliant tracks into one neat little package. For your downloading pleasure. This very special Fuck the Radio Brilliance Vol. 1 contains every track (that did not receive a DMCA take-down shake-down notice) tagged as brilliant since the blog’s creation.

You can find it HERE

The track-listing goes:

OpiuoRobo Booty

El Ten ElevenHot Cakes

Stateless – Ariel

Fabled Enemies The Prophecy

Nosaj Thing 1685/Bach

Lemon Jelly – Page One

Pretty Lights – Something’s Wrong

James Blake Air and Lack Thereof

Skream Midnight Request Line

Secret Knives – Black Hole

A.Bliss.Abyss Sakajaweea

Inaudible – Echo Chamber

Polographia – Righteous Hit

😀 It’s a MUST HAVE for anybody looking for some great new music, with genres including dubstep, glitch-hop, chillwave and shoegaze- it’s a great example of the sounds the Fuck the Radio blog loves so much.


In addition to the mixtape, you can find the complete 2010 and 2011 catalogues here (2010) and here (2011) for some more music if you like!

Now 2012 is a New Year and there are several ideas in the works to make even FTR bigger and better. The most important change will be that the focus will now be on independent and largely undiscovered artists that I come cross in my digi-digging. Remember, if you are an artist yourself- keep sending in links to your music at fucktheradio@dubcage.com or even on facebook.com/ftheradioblog.

Now it’s New Years, time to get drunk.
