Bonobo's Migration!

Hi everyone,

Bonobo is the stage name for the English electronic artist Simon Green. This album is his 6th album. I happened upon him somewhat randomly, & am glad for it. His music has a kind of acoustic goodness inside his electronic playfulness. Drums, horns, keyboards, sometimes voices. Dancey, trippy, much fun! :)

Actress' AZD!

Hi everyone,

Actress is the name of a British electronic artist named Darren Cunningham. I've long been a fan of his work because while the critics can point to his influences (Afrofuturism, for example), his art is not summed by these easily summable mentions. In other words, listen to his music, find its wild & different grooves, and leave the words, in this instance useless, far behind :)

The Great Patsy Cline!

Hi everyone,

Patsy Cline was one of the first great female country singers, who died in an airplane accident at the age of 30, back in 1963. Her songs are beautiful pieces of desire, loneliness, want. You will love an hour of this lady more than almost anything else :)

The Crystal Method's Divided By Night!

Hi everyone,

I like this album a lot. It rocks, bounces, & really sweeps along through its hour+ length. Some people don't give the Method the respect much anymore, but I think they've really come along the years with some deep funk in their hearts. Long may they roll . . .

The Crystal Method's Vegas!

Hi everyone,

Digging back some more for 'tronic-y goodies and how could I have not played this debut album by TCM? It's everything good about electronica back in the 1990s: swirly, fun, trippy, melodic, and such wild rhythms!


I got an extra hour this week so I added in the 10th anniversary remixes of this album done by Paul Oakenfold, MSTRKRFT, Hyper, Sta, Deadmau5, Koma & Bones, Tom Real vs. The Rogue Element and Myagi. 

Fantastic!

The Future Sound Of London - Environment 6.5!

Hi everyone,

FSOL continues to make old school electronica that sounds fresh and new. Their sound over the years is like a single river running through many landscapes, changing, staying, a beautiful thing. Turn on, tune in, dream away with FSOL & me . . .

Chemical Brothers' Dig Your Own Hole!

Hi everyone,

After a detour to visit with Johnny Cash for a few shows, and loving that, back to the ol' electronica. And here is the 1997 release from The Chemical Brothers, Dig Your Own Hole. End to end crazy fun, including vocals by Beth Orton and Noel Gallagher. It's like an electronic suite or symphony and listening to the first track means listening to them all. I liked it then, liked it as much now. Wanna know how this electronica stuff works when it works super well? Dig this record.
