Cold Part One

Aphex Twin 2

This weeks Twisted Groove was prompted by the cold weather we’ve been having this week and the start of winter. The show is kind of dreamy, kind of electronic and I believe evokes winter. I play some brand new releases and mix that with older releases. The show starts out with a track from the glorious new release from Aphex Twin. Enjoy…

Alex Lancaster’s Interview with Spinifex

David DJing Melanies

Posted on July 22, 2016
Sixteen years of Twisted Grooves in the high desert
DavidBarsantiDavid Barsanti is a Santa Fe-based musician, drummer, DJ and GIS analyst and has lived in the City Different since the early 1990s. When not playing in various bands around town, he is actively DJing around Santa Fe and northern New Mexico under the moniker Spinifex. He and I created the TWISTED GROOVE radio show that aired in the midnight slot on community station KSFR back in 2000. Although I left Santa Fe for the Bay Area, David has continued the show, going from strength to strength, and in the process, gaining a more sleep-friendly 10pm timeslot. Following up on the 16th anniversary of the show, I recently chatted to David about the Twisted Groove, the Santa Fe music scene and how music and radio has changed in the intervening years.

Tell us about how you got to Santa Fe

I first came to Santa Fe after getting a sociology degree with an anthropology focus from Keene State College where I’m originally from. After college I was still working in New England in archeology, but really looking for a change in environment. I was also really struggling to find work in archeology during the winter – you couldn’t find just work everywhere – it’s definitely hard to excavate then! So in November 1991, my girlfriend at the time had contacts here and we planned to come here together but that didn’t work out but I needed winter work so I was driven to find work here in SF. I was hired to do field work in the winter, and I stayed. Now by day I work as a GIS analyst for the City of Santa Fe.

What got you into music?

Sylvania-tubeI have always been into music, it was a big part of the family growing up. My oldest brother grew up in the Woodstock era so I always heard a lot of music from that time. And although my parent’s weren’t musicians themselves there was always music around the house, my Dad had worked for Sylvania, an early TV manufacturer that was eventually acquired by General Telephone and Electronics. So we always had TVs and radio stereo of the best quality around the house, which was another way I really got into sound and music.
I’m a bit fuzzy on the details, remind me how the Twisted Groove got started?

I think we started because you had heard that somebody was looking for volunteers for late night on KSFR out on the Santa Fe Community College campus. We discussed both doing college radio and thought it would be fun to try something new. We discovered we had a lot of shared musical interests, but also we each had stuff that the other didn’t know about. So we both started around the idea of creating a coherent show made up of a bunch of different styles, some obscure, some not, we both liked and that weren’t well represented on the radio like Krautrock and early electronica like Tangerine Dream.
