I've known Dicky since before I knew that I knew people. We go waaaay back and so its a special and surreal moment to be hosting one of his mixes as part of ANY. He's been in a bit of DJ hibernation lately so its event more of an honor to present this mix. It was recorded on the first day of this new year and its full of fun twists and freaky turns. Sounds about right. Enjoy!

How will tomorrow be different?
Tomorrow may not be any more different than today, but I get to hug you in person this coming weekend, so that makes tomorrow better than right now. <3
If you were an architect, what would you build?
I think I'd build a motel, or something with lots of rooms. And then design each room to be uniquely different from the rest so that it feels like you're in an architectural collage. Lately I've been really into disparate things butting up against each other and what forms from that forced connection.

What song sounds like the future to you?
I choose disparate sounds colliding into each other over a driving subby beat. Also, it's literally in the title.
What underwear are you gonna wear tomorrow?
Don't you think that's a little perso-*BLACK BRIEFS WITH THE BLUE WAISTBAND!!* Damnit. I'm terrible at keeping secrets. Or am I? I could be lying. You'll never know.
When is now?
There is no Now, all we have is that fraction of a moment when you try to define what Now is but realize it's suddenly turned into Then.  
What are you going to accomplish this year?
More DJing and sharing music with people, hopefully online, in tiny little sweaty backrooms of clubs, or in slutty dive bars. 
How will queer dance music change under president trump?
I think people are sick of chaos, sick of being drowned in politics everywhere they look, and reeling from the recent lack of truth/facts/honesty in the world. Musically, the pendulum has already been swinging away from angry intense sounds (goodbye dubstep fuck you very much) and into mellower deeper sounds and more sustained grooves. I'm hearing a lot more classic instruments (basslines from an actual bass and drums from actual drum sets etc), less build up's and drops, and I'm hearing WAY more underground/forgotten Disco. Disco is coming back in a big way and I am SO ready for it. 
What do you want for your birthday?
Since I already bought myself a fancy Japanese bidet toilet, I guess I want what you gave me for my 14th birthday, a Hoberman Sphere. Then I'll play with it for 10 min and gift it to a underfunded science class.


There is an Instagram account of closeup photos of nipples so that their gender is unclear.
Why do we continue to police women's nipples but not men's nipples?
What is the future of nipples?

"'No, totally.' 'No, definitely.' 'No, exactly.' 'No, yes.' These curious uses turn 'no' into a kind of contranym: a word that can function as its own opposite."

Language is always on the move and one of the more interesting examples to me is the "yeah, no" phenomenon.  This article from The New Yorker is more than a year old bust still relay fascinating .

What Part of “No, Totally” Don’t You Understand?


The Ask Umbra column in The Grist is a place for folks to ask their very real but very hard to answer questions about environmentally conscious living. It ranges from air conditioners to laptop batteries to 3D printing. It's a really pragmatic place to look for answers to complicated environmental issues in your day to day life.
