After a long hiatus while I moved across the country and settled in, retrotransmission is back! On the eve of the Autumn Equinox, and in celebration of the dropping mercury, I felt it appropriate to post one of my many fall playlists. This one comes from Fall 2012 and features a lot of bands I listen to when it gets cooler out: Front 242, Psychic TV, The Tear Garden, Skinny Puppy, Love and Rockets, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Tones on Tail, 6 Comm, Depeche Mode, Swans, The Legendary Pink Dots, The Creatures, Joy Division, Dead Can Dance, Clan of Xymox, and more. I hope this gets you in the mood for the greatest season there is.

Tonight was my final retrotransmission on rainydawg radio, and it was emotional for me. I hate goodbyes, so I wanted to end on a high note with a nonstop dance party, the kind where music blasts from a righteous sound system at top volume and people can’t get off the dance floor. Postpunk, pop, goth (I had to represent the goth stomp!), industrial dance, and electro kept it strong all night, and I sent retrotransmission off in style. I hope to be broadcasting live from the radio again soon…stay tuned. But until then, keep checking this blog every Monday for new and vintage retrotransmission playlists!

Over the years on retrotransmission I’ve put together several dance party playlists. This is an 80s and 90s industrial dance mix with hard driving beats from classic industrial and electro bands including Front 242, Nitzer Ebb, KMFDM, Meat Beat Manifesto, Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, and more. Think vinyl, latex, sweat, and bass.
