This week we will celebrate our Crystal or 15th anniversary of podcasting independent Downtempo Music and Artists. Looking back I am happy to report most continue to make music or have a presence on the web. We will hear from six artists from our freshman year who, 15 years later, are still going strong. Including Love Spirals, Artemis, Karmacoda, General Fuzz, Subtronix and DubeOne! Beginning with something a little different from Lovespirals from their ‘Life Goes On’ release. Here is the ‘Breath Of Life’
Idyllic Music Podcast features songs by independent downtempo electronic music artists. Electronic Music can be played on digital instruments or use sampled analog recordings or studio manipulation to create new sounds. Downtempo means the songs are not hurried or frantic, instead they unfold. You will encounter a variety of rhythms and music genres from around the world including Trip Hop, Chill-Out, Jazz, Ambient, Lounge and Dub. The music is subtle and melodic on the Idyllic Music Podcast. All our podcasts are evergreen, undated and universal. We try to provide programs you are unlikely to find anywhere else.
When we uploaded our first episode of Idyllic Music in 2006 the podcasting landscape looked very different than it does now. Most podcasts used to be music podcasts sounding a lot like underground FM radio. In 2006 there were websites like music.podshow and the Podsafe Music network offering podcasters ‘podsafe’ music or (CC) Creative Commons copyrighted songs. Idyllic Music has been committed to the promotion of the artists who have allowed us access to their work whether by (CC) or special permission. We provide clear links to the relevant artists websites, updated if possible. Each episode’s transcript also mentions the original source. As the focus of podcasting has turned towards interviewing, storytelling and personality driven programs, we main true to our first episode‘s goal to discover, play and promote independent music.
