The labels wedidit and Astral Plane Recordings will host programs, as will up-and-coming dance promoters Moony Habits and Fine Time.
The studio is located at 5906 1/2 N Figueroa St, which also home to the record store Mount Analog. The boutique shop recently expanded to host the radio studio as well as the LA headquarters of Warp Records. Mount Analog, known for its selection of records, tapes, books and other art objects as well as shows running the gamut from noise to straight-up techno, has recently expanded into an agency as well. The current Mount Analog roster includes NTS affiliates like Powell, Silent Servant and Cortini, as well as the likes of Function, Anthony Naples, Jack J, DJ Stingray and Shifted.
