Push the Fader Radio – March 2012
I take the job of digging for musical gems very seriously. New and old, the lost get found.
I make sure to leave no rock unturned when searching for the perfect beat! Along the way, you find those tracks with beats that give you instant goose bumps or lyrics that seap into your mind so deeply, they seem to come to you first thing when waking up in the morning.
There still is plenty of brand new music being made, full of flavor, but these days, you have to look harder than ever for it. You want the goodness, then go and weed through the mediocrity to find it. That’s why it’s with such pleasure that I bring Push the Fader Radio to you each month.
It’s a look inside what’s been most played in my iTunes as of late, what sees the most burn on my turntables and what exclusive may have just come my way.
This month we have new and timeless music from Quantic & Alice Russell, Protoje, Action Bronson, Jamie Woon, Marc Mac & the Visoneers, Fela Kuti and much more!
