SHG Radio Show, Episode 086

Welcome to this week's edition of Subterranean Homesick Grooves™, a weekly electronica-based radio show presented originally on CHMA FM 106.9 at Mount Allison University in Atlantic Canada (but expanded to a distribution on other terrestrial radio stations), and also distributed as a global podcast through iTunes and numerous other sites. The show is normally programmed and mixed by Jonathan Clark (as DJ Bolivia), although some weeks feature guest mixes by other Canadian DJ's. The show encompasses many sub-genres within the realm of electronic dance music, but the main focus is definitely on progressive and tribal house, and a small amount of trance & techno. Liner notes for this episode (086) can be seen below.

By the way, if you're looking for DJ mixes in styles other than progressive/tech-house, check out 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.

Here's our Podcast Feed to paste into iTunes or any other podcatcher:

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’s a link so you can listen to the show or download it from SoundCloud:

As I write this, I'm holed up in a motel just outside of Jasper National Park, due to a bit of a snowstorm. I'm staying at a place called the Tete Jaune Lodge. I spend a lot of time on the road in motels, and I have to say that this place is awesome. It has great rates, it is far more nicely furnished than I would have expected, and the owner, Ted Davis, was great to talk to. And to top it all off, the internet is fast. This is definitely my favorite place out of the thirty-some motels that I've stayed at in the last six weeks, and I'll keep this in mind for future travels on the Yellowhead between British Columbia and Alberta.

This week, I dug into the vaults to pull out the two tracks by Javith & Francis Blaid.
