"This episode of Idyllic Music is brought to you by the number ten. It sits comfortably between nine and eleven, matches our fingers quite nicely and is the base for the decimal system nearly everyone uses every day. And as it happens, this is also our tenth anniversary. Ten years of podcasting independent downtempo electronica. I can't say enough about the great artists that have allowed us to showcase their music. Happily, there is still alot more music out there waiting to be discovered. Counting it out for us are Ketsa, Navasa, Marque and Reprisal, Kirk Pearson and BIT, Vir Nocturna, Dissolved and Nonima. I'm Jim Nye."
