    FTH062 - Proximal/Distal (Jen Trezza)

    Proximal/Distal has been shredding dancy 140bpm techno tracks for PNW sound systems for quite a bit now. Hear how her creative process has evolved over the years and how she’s managed to invest not only in synths, drum machines and DAWs, but also in herself to remain resilient, even through tough times and hard relationships. As a bright spot and big supporter for the electronic/dance community, Jen takes the time to shine a light on the works of other area artists as well.

Unique, inspiring, HUMAN stories from electronic musicians

One of the best music podcasts on the internet! I love gear, but it’s super refreshing to take a break from all the machines and listen to a podcast about electronic music that has NOTHING TO DO WITH GEAR! Instead, it’s all about the people, their personal stories and their music. So inspiring to learn from a wide spectrum of creators, across electronic genres, from those just starting out to established (even famous) artists with decades of experience, all in the same personal format. This one’s something special :)

Insightful about electronic music

This podcast is cool and interviews some interesting electronic music producers. There's not a lot of gear talk, but more about philosophy and art.
