Electronic Music

With legendary electronic music duo Daft Punk calling it quits, I figured it was time for an electronic music showcase. So this session of Bridging the Gap will be an assortment of Electro, House, Big Beat and a little Drum & Bass.

Upbeat indie-electro-soul-pop is what's on the agenda for tonight's episode of Bridging The Gap.

I took a stroll down memory lane the other day and asked myself, "What was I listening to back in 2012?" The answer was, "Lots of Flume." I can't quite tell whether or not I'm embarrassed by that fact (it was 2012 and I just started working at KTUH) or proud that it was my first dive into non-top 40 music, but either way, it's the catalyst for tonight's indie-electro themed show.

Earlier this week Keith Flint, the singer for The Prodigy passed away at the age of 49. Thought I'm really not a fan of their music, it did send me down memory lane for that period of somewhat cheesy electronic music, usually categorized as Big Beat. So tonight's show is going to be a mixture of Big Beat artists, a little Jungle and Trip-Hop all from the UK.

Turning towards a more electronic sound for this evenings session of Bridging the Gap. Wrapping it all around a new release from the Chemical Brothers... so it's a good night to strap on the headphones and turn the bass up.

Splitting this Friday night show in half... playing Latin, Bossa and a little Cumbia. Then switching over to a more electronic feel for the second hour, with new music from Atropolis, Rob Garza (Thievery Corporation), and a local label called Aloha Got Soul.
