About Mantis Radio

I’m Mike, I present and produce Mantis Radio. 

A podcast presenting a wide range of electronic music and beyond, often of a darker nature, built on a backbone of techno, electro, ambient and industrial sound.

By pledging £2 a month you’ll help me in creating the show. In return you’ll help its development, receive early access to the shows, music only versions of the broadcasts, and weekly recommendations of new releases, rediscovered old gems, and mixes that I’ve discovered in the last 7 days.

Higher tiers reap better benefits, including a monthly mix, discount with my label Darkfloor Sound, t-shirts, shout outs, and bespoke recordings made for you, and only you.

After 12 years of producing the show I want to push the broadcasts further, and to help realise that I need your support. Mantis Radio is listener supported – patrons help me to keep the show ad free, free to listen, and keep the lights on. The core show has always been and will always be free to listen, and that includes all the 320+ shows in the archive.

All episodes of the show can be found on the podcast, as a HIVE or higher tier patron you’ll get access to a private podcast feed.

Subscribe on Apple Podcasts (iTunes) or your podcast reader of choice.

Since the show’s inception in 2007 I have continued to push great music from a diverse range of artists, producers, labels, and musicians. From established acts you’ve heard of, to new, unsigned, or under the radar music makers across many styles of music. Techno, electro, breakbeat, acid, IDM, drum & bass, jungle, metal, drone, experimental, doom, ambient, breakcore, abstract, and much more all feature each and every show.

Hear never heard before session mixes and recordings, produced exclusively for Mantis Radio, from an ever growing swell of fantastic artists, producers, DJs and labels. From scene leaders, like Objekt, Broken English Club, Perc, Bas Mooy, Si Begg, and Radioactive Man, to lesser known but equally engaging artists and practitioners doing their thing.

Mantis Radio is about highlighting and sharing great music.

All episodes of the show are kept freely available, with tracklists, from the Darkfloor archives, and on the podcast. From the very first show in May 2007 to the most recent.

Thank you.
Mike.
