This is the episode that will air next week on the home base stations of WESU FM. I mentioned a couple episodes back that that particular episode was electronic music heavy. Well, it turns out that most of the music made lately that I’m interested in just happens to be heavy in that direction. I’ve got more in queue too!

Nothing Under The Sun is a radio show / podcast / blog / outlet focusing on what’s new in the world of musical sound compositions. It is recorded and airs at WESU, Middletown (the community radio station at Wesleyan University) online and on 88.1FM every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at 2-3AM.
Up first is The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Tracks played on episode one are from the latest EP released by Choice Cuts entitled Heritage (CCEP001). “Rainbows,” is an upbeat hip-hop flavored number while “Moments,” is a smooth, mellowed out jam.
Pieces of this interview could be heard in the mix as well:
Next up, the El Michels Affair with “Protect Ya Neck,” and “Shimmy Shimmy Ya,” from Enter The 37th Chamber (yes, mostly instrumental interpretations of Wu-Tang Clan songs) put out by Fat Beats (FB5127).
The music of J.G. Thirwell used in The Venture Bros. (Adult Swim) was released on LP by Williams Street. The two tracks featured here are, “Brock Graveside,” and “Tuff.”
The interview used in this program can be seen and heard in full here:
Episode 1 ends with a focus on the Shangaan Electro: New Wave Dance Music From South Africa compilation released by Honest Jon’s Records (HJR52).
