Podcast 21 - Progressive Futures

Continuing with the electronic music, I'd like to present where I think the music is headed, or at least the directions I am most interested in. They seem to be running low on names for new genres in electronic music because the tendency seems to be to just slap the word progressive in front of any number of extant labels: progressive house, progressive trance, progressive breaks... As I've said before, I'm not so interested in separating things into nicely organized boxes. What I do enjoy however, is good music and I've got a bunch of it here for you today. This mix goes out to three groups of people in particular. (in the most loving way of course)

First, those people who think Detroit techno is the only form of electronica they can ever enjoy. Okay, you don't like trance. That was more than a decade ago. There's some new sh#! out there that's kinda hot. You may wanna check it out. You can even buy it on vinyl!

Second, those people who tell me if there is a dj involved they're not interested. First off, I don't even know what that means because a dj is a disc jockey and that's the guy on the radio. You don't like music on the radio? Okay while maybe I can sympathize with that statement, basically you've probably just heard some really horrible stuff and your feelings, while rational, may change if exposed to a larger sample.

And third, while I do like a huge variety of music, to anyone that would ever come into my home and suggest some Fleetwood Mac as something I might enjoy this podcast is my answer to that.

Now it's time for me to get to work on this year's SXSW mixes. Who's excited?

Thanks for listening and don't forget to support the artists. Even if those artists are Fleetwood Mac.
