Caustic Soda (November ’20)

Melodic Distraction Radio

Caustic Soda is the newest radio project from long standing station chum, Tom Lye. It’s the first venture of his into some sort of legit deejay alias which, having been lingered on for a while, has now finally stuck.

The show will run through contemporary club sounds informed and in conversation with the clubs, labels and artists at the forefront of such spaces. From sludgy dancehall and brash hip hop to rippling proto-jungle and left field techno, Caustic Soda dives headfirst into the pitch key with the haphazardness and risk of any half-decent corrosive substance.

Catch him slinging socially distanced drinks over at Meraki, a club space in the Ten Streets area of North Liverpool, before we all get the chance to safely return to dance floors together for some irl dancing and djing. 

This month we’re diving back into the club with Tom, raising the tempo from the get-go before floating back down into some contemplative sounds.
