Now Playing: peace and quiet...
Topic: my podcasts
figured i'd offer up a breather in between the black history and women's herstory shows with some body movin' material. i think i may do shows like this every now and again where it's more music, less talk, and in a continous mix fashion. this time, it's electronic dance music from various corners of the world: nyc, seattle, ireland, the netherlands, taiwan, and other areas. ezekiel's contribution ("hibernate") is at least four years old now and was never actually released, but i think it's a pivotal piece in his career, one that led him to producing the type of material he currently creates for microcosm music and other labels. shades of this work actually pop up in a netlabel track called "the breeze of hibernation," which you can get here.
i also love the fact that i got permission from kranky for out hud (a kick-ass band featuring members of !!!) and from the delsin label for two of their artists. i absolutely love delsin. i think they make smart, seductive electronic dance music that never gets old. in my humble opinion, they are to the netherlands what carl craig's planet e communications label is to the united states.
and as far as jonny sonic is concerned, they're blowing my mind right now. their album hasn't dropped yet, but it's already in the running for a best of 2006 slot from me, for real. guard your grills, kids - it's about to get ill. anyway, hope you enjoy this one. let me know what you think.
