SHG Radio Show Episode 010

Here we are with episode number ten 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 (010) can be seen below.

Here are a few notes about some of this week's tracks:

Metric (Canada) - Toronto is thoroughly represented in the opening track this week. Metric, a Canadian indie-rock band, has also been based outside of Canada at times (New York, London), but we're proud to call them our own. Emily Haines, the singer & keyboardist, also does a lot of work with another great Toronto-based indie group, Broken Social Scene. And then to top it off, this remix is by another pair of producers from Toronto, ALP & JFK, who form MSTRKRFT. As far as Canadian music goes, all of the groups above are very well known. Incidentally, for anyone who is in Halifax tonight, JFK of MSTRKRFT is playing at the Palace.

Max Graham (Canada) - Not many people remember Max from his time with a residency at Atomic in Ottawa, but Max and Atomic had a huge influence on Canada's underground scene, and Max because unofficially known as Canada ambassador for progressive house. Of course, he was propelled into mainstream awareness a few years ago with his remix of "Owner Of A Lonely Heart," but for the most part, he still concentrates on his progressive & trancey roots. He's still producing and DJ'ing these days, although he and Brad Copeland, another well-known Canadian DJ, also own iTechnique on Yonge Street in Toronto. Anyway, Max is the remixer here this week for the "Men in beats" track.

Marcie (US) - Marcie Joy has been working as a top-notch vocalist with an unbelievable number of world-class artists and producers in the past few years. Check out her discography and you'll see what I mean. Also, if you want to check out an interesting show, look up her "Behind The Lyric" series, which is a radio show & interview format with producers who explain the stories behind some of the lyrics that they've written and songs that they've produced. You can click here for a bit more info about David Akermanis.

Sultan and Ned Shepard (Canada) - These two producers are really starting to become global names these days. Another pair of Canada's formerly best kept secrets. What else can I say - combine an original track by one of my favorite producers (Morgan Page) with two great remixers, and you have a sure winner to wrap up this week's show.
