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.
The term 'amateur' shares the root of amour or to love. Making music for the love of it is as noble an enterprise as one can undertake. Artists create and if they are good or lucky enough, they can take their songs on the road and sell a few tickets. It has become more difficult for them now. Independent Artists ask only a bit of cooperation from us. This podcast is dependent on the bands that let us play their songs for free. In turn, they ask only that you buy a ticket or a song or a download directly from them. Many bands offer quality music via net labels often for free. Others have their own websites with shopping carts. It's one way to ensure great new electronic music in the future.
