Web radio recommendation: deepgrooveradio.com

There are days when I fire up iTunes while working on some office stuff and the music in my playlists just bores me. Don't get me wrong - it's all fine with my library, I just need some fresh, unheard music every once in a while after I got tired from listening to the Pesto releases for the 100th time (and I do listen that often to our releases, probably more).

Praise to the inventor of the internet - in times of widely available broadband connections, thousands of streaming web radios are in reach within one mouseclick. You will find any and every flavour of both full music programmes as well as spoken word and news shows. When anything else fails, I'm popping into a station with classical music and after some Beethoven, Dvorak or Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, I feel way better.

If you're aiming at electronic music regarding web radios, you will surely know the big fish that are serving our community for years such as Proton Radio, Frisky Radio, Di.fm, SSRadio, danceradio.gr and the streams of renowned stations such as the BBC, Ibiza Sonica, Ibiza Global Radio and so on and so forth.

By being active on a number of social networks, I come across new radio stations that I haven't heard of before frequently. And when I tune in, I'm often pleased with lovely sound and left wondering how come that I missed this particular station. Track after track reveals a great selection and taste in music, new tunes play along classics and the playlist reads like my vinyl box.

Today, I would like to introduce deepgrooveradio.com to you: it's a station I love to listen to when I'm writing blog entries, messing up databases, processing mail - all the jobs I don't really like but that need to be done. The music is far from being "elevator muzak"-ish, yet still, there are no tunes that are too annoying (I don't like each and every tune, of course).
"I don't want to try to suit anybody rather than to present a caleidoscope of our genre that changes every time you shake it." says Deep Groove's Martin Kazmirzak and hits bull's eye with this approach.

I have found their programming to be very grown-up but that's no wonder as Martin Kazmirzak, the guy who founded deepgrooveradio.com in 2008, has to offer more than 20 years of DJ experience. It's also probably due to the programming quality that deepgrooveradio.com was the first german radio station to broadcast Grammy nominee Jay-J's weekly show "Live from...". You surely remember Jay-J from our Pesto 011 release by L.A.'s hawtness queen Sandra Lima.

Their website is in german language but they offer translations for your country. What's also worth a note are the different ways you can receive deepgrooveradio.com: they offer streams for iTunes/WinAmp, WMP, a Flash stream and a dedicated browser toolbar. What stands out is DeepGroove's offer to receive their stream via your mobile - be it on Nokia Internet Radio or by installing an iPhone app - well done, guys!

Oh, and did I already mention that deepgrooveradio.com are huge Pesto fans? Well, now I did. ;)

I am planning to do an interview with Martin very soon. So, as long as you're waiting for that one to be published, enjoy the deep grooves of deepgrooveradio.com and make sure you connect with them on twitter.

The sound chair

Sound Design, taken from a whole different angle, is the work of Matthew Plummer-Fernandez - a UK designer with colombian roots. He feeds a water-jet cutter with waveforms to cut the shapes for his sound chair out of polyethylene foam. Here's a visualization:

Bild 1

And the finished product:

Bild 4

Reminds us a bit of the waveform bracelets we brought you earlier, just on a bigger scale. If you visit Matthew's web site, you find more details, pictures and animations of the sound chair as well as more examples of the designer's projects.
