Requiem

It is with great sadness, but great hopefulness that I have decided to end SUBterror Radio as a live broadcast.

I have been doing the show for 4 years, every other week (every week for the first year), and I just feel like it’s time to move on to other creative projects. It takes a lot of time and money to keep the show going, and I’m just at that phase where I would like to put that effort elsewhere (mostly original music production).

Thank you SOOOOOOO much to all of the artists who have appeared on the show in the last 4 years, to all of the artists who have sent me fantastic music to play, to the folks who donated money and/or gear to keep the show going when I needed it, and to all of the listeners (but especially to those dedicated few who listened live with such regularity).

It’s been an awesome experience and I am sad to shut it down, but the time comes when you need to move on, and sadly, that time for me is now.

So much love to everyone who has supported me in this endeavor. The archives will remain at my Soundcloud. There’s 150 shows there. I’m sure if you need your SUBterror Radio fix, a listen back through those will do the trick.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you. I love you all.

Love,
DJ Shiva

Happy birthday, SUBterror Radio! <3

Wow. We are fast approaching the three year anniversary of SUBterror Radio. I started the show in September of 2012 (on 9.09, to be exact) as a way to play regularly, showcase the techno I love, and showcase other techno artists with a wide variety of sounds.

It started out as a weekly show, and after doing it weekly for two years, it got to be a bit overwhelming, so I pulled it back to biweekly instead. That gives me a bit of breathing room and gives me more time to really find the best music for the show and also have time for the rest of my life.

Thanks to everyone who has ever been a guest on the show, listened live, joined in the chat (I just said that in my head to the tune of Nitzer Ebb), listened to the replays on Fnoob Techno Radio and Seance Radio, listened on Soundcloud, promoted the show, wore the shirts, displayed the stickers, donated gear or money, and just generally supported my efforts to make this a quality show for discerning techno heads.

The show has been great for my mental health (playing technoes always puts me in a better mood) and my DJ skills, has connected me with a talented and growing North American techno family that I am super proud of every day, a wordwide techno family that I hope to meet more of soon, and just generally is a positive thing in my life at a time I have really needed it.

Thanks to all of you for being a part of it. Happy 3 years!

Help us help cats!

To my wonderful listeners: if you have noticed the cat logo, or follow me on Facebook, you’re probably aware that I am a huge fan of cats. 🙂 I wanted to use the platform of the radio show to give something to my community, and specifically, to the cats of my community.

So this year, if you are a listener of the show, please consider a donation to my favorite Indianapolis-based organization, FACE low cost spay/neuter clinic. They do great work to help keep animals from being euthanized, provide life-saving surgeries, and help find homes for kitties (and pups too!). You can donate here:

Or if you prefer, please give to an organization in your own community that takes care of animals in need. 🙂

Thanks again for listening and thanks for helping me take care of the cats! ❤

Two years? That’s crazy talk!

Yep, SUBterror Radio is fast approaching its 2 year anniversary next week!

When I had this crazy idea to do a weekly radio show, I wasn’t sure how long I would be able to sustain that pace, or even if it would take off at all. Two years later, I can honestly say that sometimes it takes a heck of a lot of work to keep up with new music to keep things fresh, but that is work that appeals to my inherent nerdiness and allows me to justify spending a hell of a lot of money on new music. All in all, it’s been super fun!

What makes it the most fun is the people who tune in for the live show and chat and interact in a way that gives me great energy when I am essentially playing in a room by myself.

I am looking forward to the anniversary, and to continuing to feature new music and great talent (both well-known and unsung). Thanks to everyone who has made this a fun ride!
