Downbeat electronic music

What You Will Hear

Idyllic Music Podcast features songs by independent downtempo electronic music artists working outside the mainstream of modern popular music. On Idyllic Music, the songs are layered, melodic and subtle. They are not hurried rather they unfold. You will hear a variety of rhythms and musical styles from around the world including Trip Hop, Chillout, Dub, Jazz, Electronica and Downbeat. All our podcasts are evergreen, undated and universal. We try to offer programs you are unlikely to hear anywhere else.

Latest Project

Several years ago while putting together a special podcast marking the 100th episode of Idyllic Music, we considered more than 600 of the best songs of the previous one hundred shows. I think the resulting CD ready mixes were a good representation of the podcast. Episode 150 was a more stripped down affair. For Episode 200, the task is complicated by time and availability (HD crash). Nevertheless, we have crafted together a mix of brand new songs and overlooked gems for nearly an hour of commercial-free independent music.

Headphone Electronica

What is 'electronica'? It's a term used to describe "electronic music styles intended not just for dancing but also concentrated listening". Headphone electronica is created by indie musicians working with twenty first century tools to create, edit and sometimes perform their work. It's a new 'Folk Art' crafted by artists making professional quality music for the digital age. Musicians getting little support or interference from mainstream record labels. Idyllic Music Podcast features songs by these artists and I think you will agree the talent is astounding.
