Idyllic Music Podcast features songs by independent downtempo electronic music artists. You will hear a variety of rhythms and musical styles from around the world. They include Trip Hop, Chill, Jazz, Dub, Lounge and Ambient. Downtempo means the songs are not hurried or frantic, instead they unfold. The music is melodic and subtle on the Idyllic Music Podcast. All our podcasts are evergreen, undated and universal. We try to offer programs you are unlikely to hear anywhere else.
This week, we’ll look back at the golden age of online music distribution. For much of the past two decades netLabels and OMD communities have provided a safe and easy way for musicians to upload their songs for distribution via a Creative Commons copyright. Recently, we have seen the demise of nearly all free OMD sites and only a handful of netLabels remain. The gatekeepers are all behind paywalls. Thankfully many netLabels have uploaded their catalogues to archive.org before going dark. Here are eight bands we might not have otherwise heard without these independent online resources.Best of Electronic Music
