Don't Panic! We're Making Electronic Music
Mike Polarny presents a panorama of Polish electronic music. 24 pieces on a 111-minute mix.
Some musicians and producers roam clubs all over the world while others rule the dance-floors of their own cities. Some of them are released by the world's best known record labels, and others set out on their own. The music on this podcast does not belong to a single genre. There is some electronic pop, deep bass sounds, quivering minimal dance music and broken beats influenced by hip-hop.
The first Don't Panic - We're From Poland electronic podcast features a panoply of musicians representing Poland's leading record labels: U Know Me Records (with musicians XXANAXX, Kixnare, Daniel Drumz and Teielte), Recognition Records (Jacek Sienkiewicz) and Pets Recordings (Catz 'n Dogz).
The podcast features artists having already found fame and recognition abroad, like Berlin-based Gathaspar, a producer working for record labels Freude Am Tanzen and Thema, known for his deep, analogue sound; Kuba Sojka, who has been released by Chicago's Mathematics Recordings, Matrix Records from Detroit and the French Stay Underground It Pays, among others. Not to forget the master of synthesisers Jurek Przeździecki, released by Cocoon, Boshke Beats and Affin.
Polarny's mix rounds up every beat worth listening. Appearing on the podcast is Monika Brodka with Varsovie (Eltron John Dub) from Uncanny Valley, Kamp! with Melt, and Invent feat. KRS-One. The list goes on - check it out!
