Here at our Year’s End, I am inspired to think of the past inaugural autumn and winter season of The Electric Metropolis and how special they are to me. Thirteen official episodes, with one pilot episode on the Bricolounge, have come and gone and I have enjoyed each and every one of them. I have had the opportunity to meet great artists, listen to great music, and showcase music to you all that most don’t usually hear on the radio. From dance-friendly Future Funk; synthwave both bright and dark; chiptunes from video games to demonstrations of hardware; and all else in electronica that I have slowly experienced with each and every listener who have listened live and via podcast: these things I am forever grateful for.
Don’t mistake me, this is not the end of our tours throughout The Electric Metropolis. In the New Year we’ll be exploring more chips, more games, and more music from around the globe to bob, dance, and smile to. If there is anything that makes touring worth it is knowing the sprawl of sound and song is never-ending into every direction all day and all night.
