SHG Radio Show Episode 007

Here we are with episode number seven of Subterranean Homesick Grooves™, a weekly electronica-based radio show presented on CHMA FM 106.9 at Mount Allison University in Atlantic Canada, programmed and mixed by Jonathan Clark (as DJ Bolivia). The show encompasses many sub-genres within the realm of electronic dance music, but the main focus is on progressive and tribal house, and a bit of trance & techno. Liner notes for this episode (007) can be seen below.

By the way, if you're looking for DJ mixes in styles other than progressive/tech-house, check out www.djbolivia.ca/mixes.html. That page has a number of mainstream/top40 dance mixes (the "Workout Mix" series), as well as some deep house, drum and bass, and other styles.

Older episodes of the show are not directly available from our main servers anymore, to conserve space for more recent episodes. However, all older episodes have been posted individually on SoundCloud, and also in archives of 25 episodes apiece (convenient for bulk downloading) from DJ Bolivia's Public Dropbox folder. That Dropbox link also has folders for individual tracks and remixes, project files and stem collections for producers who want to make their own remixes, videos, and other material. You don't even need to have a Dropbox account to download files from it.

Here are a few notes about some of the artists or producers featured in this week's show:

Baldo (Italy) – Unfortunately, there are a few "Baldo’s" on MySpace, so make sure you find the right one. As long as you remember that this Baldo is from Italy, you’ll do just fine. You’ll also be impressed to know that he’s definitely one of the youngest producers I’ve played on my show yet, at just twenty years of ago.

DJ Heavygrinder (US) – Bobbie’s live shows are well known for her flamboyant stage presence and varied outfits, however, she is just as comfortable in a production environment as she is behind the decks, with several high energy house tracks to her credit in the past year or two. For anyone in the Halifax area tomorrow night (February 27th, 2010), you’ll be able to catch her playing at the Paragon on Gottingen Street. Also, I’ve got some footage from one of her former shows in Nova Scotia (at Reflections Caberet), which I’m just editing right now and should have on my main website by tomorrow.

Simon & Shaker (Spain) – The output of this duo is prodigious, to say the least – just look at their discography. You may wonder why I’m talking about them when they don’t have any tracks on this week’s show. Well, actually, Sundayprayers IS Simon & Shaker. I believe that S&S also had a record label with D-Formation at one point, Intenso Recordings, although I haven’t heard that name much recently. No matter – these guys have support from most of the biggest names in the industry.

DJ Dan (US) – Dan is the original face of the underground West Coast house music scene, where he spent the 1990's cementing his reputation as the best of the best, and also playing venues all over North America and the world. He also produces (remember classic hits like "That Zipper Track") and tours very extensively today. In fact, for those of you in Atlantic Canada, Dan is playing in Moncton on March 4th at the City Grill, and in Halifax on March 5th at the Palace.

EDX (Switzerland) – EDX has been extremely busy in the past year, after having taken several years off from producing just before that. This Italian native has two tracks on this week’s show if you look carefully, his own “Party Of Politics” track, and a remix of Dinka’s “Elements.” That’s no surprise with his hectic schedule: recently, he’s done remixes for Dubfire, Deadmau5, Armand van Helden, Steve Angello, Kool & The Gang, Lauryn Hill, Armin van Buuren, Kaskade, and many more.

Young Parisians (UK) – This is another duo who is harder to track down on MySpace, since there are a few other groups that go by the same name. If you do look at their link, it looks like they haven’t logged in since 2006. Don't worry: these Young Parisians are not so French, or sitting on the Champs-Élysées. Just look for info about Solar Stone, since Young Parisians is just an alias. This track originally came out in 2004, but the remixes are still getting major play. The Probspot remix would have fit in a bit better with the rest of this mix, but I really enjoy the Solar Stone Remix, so I put theirs into the show instead. Unfortunately, less than half of that remix fit into the show - it's a pretty long track. You can listen to the full mix on Beatport.


So long, farewell, I must bid you adieu. But before I go, if you're curious about who that [other] sexy voice is in the show doing all the promo voice-overs, it is Shawn Cole of Fadermaster Studios in Vancouver. He's a great friend, a former roommate, and a former DJ for me at my club. So if you need to hire someone to do any professional vocal work, go to his website and check him out. His studio is based in Vancouver, where he also teaches at a couple of the sound schools, but they have clients all over the world.
