For our first broadcast from our new space (yeah, we moved again), we bring a custom selection from SF Bay Area dj/producer Cumulus (Word of Mouth, Loud Ass Bastards, Syatic Media). Our guest originally hails from Santa Barbara, where he helped run JustUs Productions and their flagship Synaesthesia series, and spent summers throwing full moon parties with Word of Mouth. During this time he developed a reputation for deep, dark, heavy sounds and long, detailed mixes. Playing mostly drum & bass under the moniker Sam I Am*, he also made appearances in Los Angeles, alongside veteran selectors like Dj Dara, Infiltrata, and Reid Speed.

In 2006 he relocated to SF and began helping the expansion of WoM into the Bay Area. He also began working closely with SF producer Djeeno, and his sound began to mature rapidly. Under the recently acquired name of Cumulus, he is pushing a sound that's diverse, intelligent, and deep, and defies easy categorization (just how we like it).

Opening with his own new track Bayou, this mix winds thoughtfully through dubstep, idm, and downtempo territory. It's the kind of mix that bears multiple close listens...

You can catch him this Saturday at Word of Mouth Presents: Twice As Nice, 17 hours of music at two different FREE East Bay locations.
