Reagan VanMatre aka Reaganometry has lived in Texas his whole life. Growing up in Temple, then moving to Austin, he has played in the groups: Attack Formation, BANGAAR and most recently, BOSS EYE as well has honing his own solo production work. He is one of our closest family members and has a ridiculous amount of knowledge when it comes to vinyl. Last time we released a podcast with him, we had Recspec make a video for it. This time we thought we’d make a cassette to go along with this one for those long road trips that you could throw on for hours on repeat.
Reaganometry has put together an incredible mix on cassette with some of his favorites from the massive vinyl library at his place. His house, an east side dwelling once lived in by a local BBQ kingpin. “Thee Perfect High” is also available as a cassette from Fatbeats.com. The cassette is for promotional use only. Play at a loud volume in a crowded place, to ensure maximum enjoyment.
Artwork was made by one of our longtime friends, Kenneth Holland aka Caioneach of Oakland, CA. more info on him at dutchslavetrade.com

iNSECT RADIO #16 Chief & the Doomsday Device "Strange Transmissions" (direct DL here)
Chief has been apart of the Exploded Drawing crew as well as the iN, since the beginning. He is always finding new ways of conjuring the old with the new, flipping it, and creating something altogether original. From a sleepy little town in Texas called San Marcos, he has given us the gift of a mix that contains some of his favorites, a brand new AADM flip and, as usual, gems from the family.

He is also the co-founder of Exploded Drawing, a local showcase for underground music, books a music venue here in town, and enjoys lemonade and ice at the same time. The $&$ songs on this were for an album that will never come out, so he decided to release a few of them via this mix, with the songs that were the influence, included as reference, as well as a couple flips and favorites from our iNSECT Family.

Raj Mahal lives in Chicago now, originally from the Detroit area, and was introduced to us via our friend Charles aka SelfSays. He produces hip hop that slapped the wall every time the snare doors and shakes your insides when the bass kicks. He sent us a couple songs they did together and we were completely floored. We asked him for some music, he sent this mix with the note: "songs and my own tracks and flips, what ever may come to your mind if you want to use it or not"
We will be releasing a cassette for Raj this year, when he's ready. Enjoy the Heat.
This man, Pudge, is a force to be reckoned with. And this new mix, created for his family past, present and future, is something that requires repeat listening. One of the the flyest producer's we've ever had the good fortune to work with, puts it down for the iN.

This time around we have done three things a little differently for our podcast series.
We are releasing a song that didn't quite make our newest release IRS-012 instead of a mix. It clocks in at a little over eight minutes, and we are also releasing a video counterpart as well through our youtube and vimeo channels. iNSECT TV maybe? Anyways, we really hope you dig it.
Video was put together and filmed by Laurel Barickman for Recspec (recspec.org)
She is responsible for everything visual we do here at the (iN).
This song is (uN)released and originally was made up of three songs by Reaganometry. He just released a split 12" LP with our brother Butcher Bear (RIP). That LP, titled "R&B", is now available from Fatbeats.com here: fatbeats.com/products/reaganometry-butcher-bear-r-b-lp
This is half of the new LP, "Collage" from the man, REZ.
REZ was born in Bandung, Indonesia, just outside of Jakarta.
In 2002 he moved to Inglewood, CA and then finally on to Houston.
His creative chops and sound-scapes flux into deep meditation.
We think the best way to enjoy this is to hear it in full.
This is hip-hop. This is from the future. This is TEXAS.
All we can say after hearing this is, 'WHERE IS THE OTHER HALF?'
