Selecting a more electronic beat heavy colletion of music for this session of Bridging the Gap, rainging from Dancehall, to Jazzy House to broken Latin breaks.

Full disclosure... it was a busy day here at HPR, with zero time to prepare a show for tonight. So I'm picking this one out on the fly, and just going the flow. Hopefully it doesn't suck.

Exploring the sensitive side of indie rock and singer-songwriters in this session of Bridging the Gap, with new music from Madeline Kenney (Pictured), Angel Olsen, and Dirty Projectors.

I haven't done a Hip-Hop show in a long time, and with the recent death of Malik B from the Roots and Ty, I think it's long overdue. So this session of Bridging the Gap is going to be a collection of favorites, classics and Jazz-influenced tracks.

It's been a while since I've done an entire show of World Music, so this session of Bridging the Gap will lean heavily on sound from Africa, and India, with a lot of curveballs in-between.

No theme for this session of Bridging the Gap, just keeping the music eclectic and slipping back and forth between indie, electronic and world music.

While I'm normally much more partial to faster-paced, uptempo tracks, tonight's show will be a softer, more laid back affair. Indie rock, alt and a smattering of soul will make for a great show to ease yourself into the night.

Part 2 of a summer surfing soundtrack of songs pulled from surf videos, and songs that often get stuck in my head when I'm out in the lineup. It's a dreamy, eclectic mix of Jazz, World and Downtempo with a lot of music pulled from videos on Nobody Surf.

The working theme for this show is Una Peripecia (The Incident). But it's really just the starting song from Buddy Sativa and not the general direction of the show, which will be a mostly mellow trip through downtempo, world, and other tasty delights.

This session of Bridging the Gap I'm creating a summer surfing soundtrack of songs pulled from surf videos, and songs that often get stuck in my head when I'm out in the lineup. It's a dreamy, eclectic mix of flowing tunage with a lot of music pulled from videos on Nobody Surf.

Tuesday marked the 8 year anniversary of Bridging the Gap, and I couldn't fit all the music I wanted to play on the actual anniversary day into a two hour show, so I'm letting it spill out into this show with a more Latin and electronic focus and still  a collective of favorite and notable songs from the last few years.

Today is the 8 year anniversary of Bridging the Gap, so Paige and Nick are switching days for this week (Paige will sub in for Nick on Wednesday), and it'll be a collective of favorite and notable songs from the last years.

Mellow, longer, mostly couch-locked nuggets of Downtempo, Soul Jazz and new music fill this session of Bridging the Gap.

Complicated rhythms mix with electronic percussion and tropical feels tonight in this session of Bridging the Gap. With new music from Captain Planet, Khruangbin, and Atropolis and weaving in and out of Semba, Jungle, Boogaloo, and other global soul.

This is one of those Bridging the Gap sessions where I couldn't settle on a theme. So I'm leaning back on the traditional AAA format and keeping the selection random and eclectic.
