The Bunker Podcast 200 – Derek Plaslaiko Tracklist
The Bunker Podcast was started back in 2007 when barely any electronic music podcasts existed if you can imagine such a thing. This was pre-Soundcloud when file hosting was expensive and most people didn’t understand how to publish an RSS feed, and portable digital recorder technology wasn’t that advanced yet. In the early days, the podcast was made up entirely of sets recorded at The Bunker parties. At some point artists went from being super excited that we wanted to put their sets online and knew how to do it, to being really squeamish about putting out “imperfect” sets recorded in a live context. So we more or less took some years off from podcasting sets. In recent years, we started releasing sets that weren’t necessarily recorded at the party and the podcast picked up steam again. In any case, it’s nice that The Bunker Podcast 200 is actually a recording from a party, and even nicer that it’s brought to you by our long term resident DJ, Derek @plaslaiko.
artist statement: “This was recorded at a party thrown by the crew at WYA Chicago in early August, 2019. The party itself was incredible! Great sound in a perfect sized room filled with people that were completely going off! Can’t really ask for much more than that. I wanted this to be a Bunker Podcast because I think it’s a great example of how I strive to play every time. This one is a 3 hour long “storytelling set covering house and techno and everything that falls between. Mostly new tracks with a few classics peppered in to push the buttons on a few of my friends who came out. I hope you enjoy listening to it, as I sure as hell had fun recording it.”
