Arthur Radio Voyage #18: Swimming in the Cosmic Ocean w/ DJ Ron Like Hell

Double-click for fullscreen + scroll.

Many leagues below a murky, oil-filled pocket of subtropical waters off the southern coast of the United States, abyss creatures continue to communicate through light and vibration. In the “midnight zone,” a formidable black swallower feeds off of a hydrothermal vent, shrouded in a darkness thicker and blacker than deepest outer space. An opalescent dumbo octopus floats serenely by, her shiny coating picking up hints of a nearby jellyfish‘s flashing stroboscopic light, which illuminates a pulsating haze of red around them. On the very bottom of the ocean floor, a sea dandelion sits quietly, swaying back and forth to the rhythm of tectonic plates stirring below her…

Above: Special guest DJ Ron Like Hell, a resident purveyor of good taste and mind-expanding musical knowledge at northern Greenpoint’s favorite record-vending establishment, Permanent Records. If you are in the New York area on Friday, June 11th, go see him DJ at The Loft above Public Assembly.

  1. Voyage #18 is magnificent!
    All of the Arthur Radio Voyages have been amazing but what concerns me is that they keep getting better. If this trend continues, extrapolating my calculations ahead in time suggests listeners will eventually implode into some kind of quantum-ecstatic state of no return 😉

  2. Loved this set. Ron is the only guy I go to when I want recommendations on new albums. Every time I walk into Permanent Records, I walk out with a bunch of records I never expected to buy…and love every one of them! Great piece Camilla. Well said Bob!!
