Erk FM: Australia 410 – More Phoning Home The Beats & Breaking The Rules

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 410. Last week, Erk decided to go down a different path in his musical journey of discovery & knocked on the front door of Sydney electronica artist Phon (not literally, of course!) courtesy of Jamendo. Phon’s album BrainDance was released in 2012 & is a staggering 61 tracks long. This perfectly illustrates how easy it seems to produce music & put it on line. Electronica is not normally a genre that Erk plays for a whole show. Erk normally doesn’t feature 61 tracks on an episode – last week’s episode made it to song 34. This week, songs 35 – 61 are featured including a song that goes for 24 minutes. Another rule broken!

 

Erk normally doesn’t feature a musician that he knows nothing about. Consider all of these 3 rules broken on Erk’s musical journey of discovery. Like last week, Erk isn’t going to type the names of 61 songs by the same artist! […]

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 408.
