RPM/Dance/Electronica

Saturday 9pm-3am
Format Director: w brendan kelley (babeljunk7 @ hotmail.com)

*FROM KRAFTWERKERS to CANDYRAVERS*

RevolutionsPerMinute-the format title for uber-genre: electronic

quite possibly, the most all-encompassing of all music genres...
incorporating elements from every other musical style and all
countries...no sound is sacred when it comes to electronica...house
music lifting the chants from old religious recordings...drum n bass
speeding up obscure 80's hip hop beats to make them nearly impossible
to dance to...20 minute long ambient pieces made up from the wind
in the eaves and an acoustic guitar...this could all be classified as
electronic...while some formats have very rigid boundaries that the
artists must conform to, to be accepted, the electronic department
is often the home to those artists that are unable to conform, or whose
music is unable to be classified, because it straddles too many genres...

and speaking of genres...
techno
house
trance
electro
tech
drum n bass
dubstep
hardcore
downtempo
breaks
experimental
minimalism
garage

progressive

hardstyle
glitch
and of course, happy hardcore

tune in and you could hear all that, or you could hear the early experiments with tape looping or the newest music that arrived in our inbox...singles, remixes, and full dj sets...international stars or even yourself, if you send us your productions...any questions or comments, my e-mail is at the top...
