Podcast Host Jim Nye has over 200 episodes of Chilled Downtempo Electronic Music. Independent Trip Hop, Dub, Jazz and Electronica since 2006. All our podcasts are evergreen, undated and universal. Each show has between four and eight songs lasting around thirty minutes.
This week we’ll look at the life serving skill of reason. The process in deciding if something is true. It’s based on reducing assumptions and making the best choice under the circumstances. The simplest answer isn’t always the truest. This week we’ll hear from six artists who gradually peal back layers to get to that essence. They are Advanced Suite, Kazuki, Lovement, The Microgram, D-Echo Project and Culture Horn. I’m Jim Nye.
The City at Night
This week, we’ll listen to The City at Night. From the time the sunsets until dawn, the city changes neighborhood by neighborhood, from glittering to gritty, from evening to the early morning it sound different, somehow more distant than daytime.
They Are Not What They Seem
This week we’ll hear from seven artists who are not what they seem. Not entirely anyway. We make assumptions and have expectations that are not always met at first blush. Like the name of a band or the music from a particular place.
Cheesy Beats and Firecrackers
This week we’ll lay out a spread of Cheesy Beats and Firecrackers. Embracing the schmaltz and finding our inner groove. It's cinematic music with modern beats nostalgic for camp Hollywood tropes and tv variety shows but ultimately it all leads back to Walter Wanderley’s elevator classic ‘Summer Samba’.
Artificial Intelligence and Electronic Music
This week we will reflect on how artificial intelligence is influencing music culture. People's ability to learn from each other, from teacher to student, from mentor to novice, is how we build knowledge and transmit culture.
Electronic Music’s Second Generation
This week we take a look at the second generation of electronic music artists. Standing on the shoulders of giants like Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and Wendy Carlos, a decade later these artists were marrying a dyi-punk ethos with the widespread availability of synths.
In my heart from the day I discovered it
Many many years ago I stumbled upon this podcast, when podcast was something quite new to me and to the world. I’m very glad that I can browse Nye’s complete legacy here. Golden, golden.
2nd Coolest podcast you've never heard of
I'm also a long time listener. Where they find these mind blowing songs is beyond me. Yes. Headphones are recommended.
This is a most wonderful podcast
Can’t believe there are so few ratings. I’ve been listening to Jim Nye for years, and was saddened when he had to take a break for illness. Now he’s back and the music is a perfectly curated as ever! Fantastic!
