"A Late Night Radio Show that plays Night Music:
Music that wakes up when the sun goes down
Music that sounds like the electronic building blocks of society
Music that makes you remember to never forget
Music that draws you to the light on that intercontinental flight
It's That Show."
That was the original pitch for Red Eye Sunrise, and the show continues on its pursuit of crafting eclectic soundtracks from electronic bands and artists from the late 1970s to today. Typically broken into three segments, the first hour tends to skew upbeat alternative electronic dance, ranging from deep house to tech house, from electro to nu disco. The second segment gets deeper, darker, and more introspective, where you might hear an early 1980s synthetic torch song in between a trip hop classic and something from DFA. The third hour generally comes from Guilterre's own vinyl vault, where, let's face it, there's a lot of 1980s extended remixes in there...
Frequent guest DJs mix things up a bit.
About the host: Producer/DJ Charles Guilterre has called creative hotspots NYC and LA as home. Widely known for his Hump Wednesday parties in New York City's East Village in the late 1990s, his electronic sound incorporates elements of lounge, experimental, electro, synthwave, heady house, and a hint of industrial, the latter heavily influenced by music from Chicago's WaxTrax! label from the mid-1980s. He currently lives in Portland, OR, collaborating on house production/remixing projects as part of his House of Fronds production team/label, and is in the studio working on a new release for his experimental electro outfit Fallen Fronds.
