For those of you not familiar with Tim Sweeney and Beats and Space, it’s a WNYU radio show 89.1 every Tuesday night from 10:30 till 1 am. The impressive thing is that it started Fall of 99 and has been going strong since that date every week. Tim Sweeney is a DJ Producer and has been involved with countless music projects over the years.
On a special night in August this year Sweeney hosts the legendary James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem). Head here to listen to the amazing set put together by Murphy on a newly releasing covertly designed mixer . Sweeney and Murphy talk about projects, mixes, and the demise of LCD Soundsystem in a humorous first 15 minutes, then Murphy dives in, bouncing around the globe and mixing all kinds of everything (trance to jazz) into a flowing funky 2 part set.
James Murphy’s set is not the only piece of special music you can find on the website. There are endless hours of music varying in genres and you can stream and download every single one.
