It is with heavy hearts we have decided to shut down the Innotune podcast. But the blog lives on.
The reason is simple: We just don’t have time to update the podcast on a regular basis. And a podcast needs to release episodes regularly. So it’s better to quit, then. Innotune has been a non profit project from the beginning, running on nothing but enthusiasm from our crew members.
A big thank you goes out to our dedicated regular listeners. And those stopping by for a quick fix of electronic fjord music. The 13 episodes we’ve made will still be available for streaming through Mixcloud. Maybe we’ll even add some more content there in the future. But the podcast feed ends now.
We’ll keep blogging here at innotune.net, though, so keep coming back!
Download an extended EDM experience. Episode 013 has got pumping breaks, Miami optimised house, nu disco and trancer Ville Lope in the mix.
The label Kitsuné is represented with two tracks, so is Punks and Cold Busted. For the first time we bring you the same track twice in an episode: Gramatic – A Bunch of Questions, but in two very different remixes.
Toolroom is on a killing spree nowadays, with a total takeover of the Beatport top 30 in front of WMC in Miami. Mark Knights label is represented with four solid tracks.
Our trance superstar from the land of the deep woods and the thousand beautiful lakes, Ville Lope, has put together the final 30 minutes of this episode. Expect high quality finnish trance.
Download and enjoy a piece of great EDM variety. It’s what we like to call Electronic fjord music. Continue Reading "Podcast 013 – Starring Ville Lope"...
Here’s a surprise.
The guys in Röyksopp put out one piece of unreleased material for free download every month. Sometimes pretty crazy stuff. But this christmas they chose to publish a cover of ”O Holy Night” (Cantique de Noël).
I cannot decide whether this is beautiful or just totally wrong. It’s a thin line between the two.
Listen and judge for yourself.
To be fair – it is after all a new year and we just celebrated Christmas – I’ve also included one of their superb freebies.
“I Wanna Know” was up for grabs at SoundCloud before, but unfortunately not anymore.
Previously I have written about sampling by linking to a video showing how Prodigy’s superhot Smack My Bitch Up was put together. That shows us how sampling is turned to an artform.
The other way to sample tracks is to have straight part, a loop from another track. This is particularly common, or rather used, way in house music in general.
Let me give an example. You must have heard the sickest, weirdest craziest track out there at the moment: Duck Sauce – Barbra Streisand.
Time for something different. Episode 012 is a chillout only mix. One hour with both classics and brand new downtempo.
This episode contains brand new chill from artists like Commix, Quarrel and Gramatik. But you’re also about to be served chillout classics from the likes of Jon Hopkins, Bent and Boards of Canada.
Endal, the host of the Innotune podcast, has done the selection and mixing. The result is a calming experience. Download, share and enjoy!
The melodic, baleric and lasttly, generic, genre of trance music passed away in the year of 2010 at a uknown age after several years of illness. Trance music will always hold a special place in our hearts, but will not be missed thanks to uncreative artists.
At a young age, trance music was a fresh breath of air in a rock and pop world. It was breaking the “rules” of music and was raised by persons such as Astral Projection, Dance 2 Trance, Orbital, Oliver Lieb and Sven Väth. Trance music was breaking grounds at a age when it still was wearing diapers – just like the people who listened to it eventually needed after subcombing to the chemical usage.
Trance music quickly grew up, but experienced a troublesome time. It was struggling to find its place in this world and trailed a lot of paths trying to find itself. Hard trance, progressive trance, baleric trance, club trance (?) was some of the ways trance tried to find it´s path. Trance even joined dance music, and after this trance never was the same again.
To promote the DJ Hero 2 game, Tiesto has teamed up with Activision to create what is suppose to be the first music video ever created with nothing but video game footage.
Tiesto has made two exclusive tracks for Dj Hero 2, and according to Mixmag ‘Speed Trail’ has been a regular on his lates tour as well, together with his own game character flashing on the big screen. So why not make a music video out of it?
We have written about trance in video games before, but this has to be the exact opposite.
Enjoy 66 minutes filled with nasty house, smooth electronica, melodic breakbeat and a great trance mix from Super8 & Tab.
This is another episode with the unique Innotune variety of electronic music. We’re stretching from the breakbeats of Subtribe to the slick house of Toolroom and the quality electronica of Ninja Tune.
The Finnish duo Super8 & Tab have mixed for us this time. They are ready with their debut album ‘Empire‘ on Anjunabeats, but have been a highly visible part of the trance family for a long time. They are known for quality trance releases and two Anjunabeats Worldwide mix compilations.
Episode 011 also contains tracks from established artists like Faithless, Andy Duguid, Eskmo and Mark Reeve. But we also play a downtempo track from the unsigned artist Indigo78. Download or listen now!
The Innotune podcast is one year old!
Today, September 16th, we celebrate the one year anniversary of our podcast. A year ago Marcus Schossow was the first artist to headline an episode of the Innotune podcast.
Here’s the highlights – in our own opinion.
In episode 003 we had the honor to feature the legendary producers Jody Wisternoff and Nick Warren, aka Way Out West. Their mix is consisting of their own tracks only, with both old classics and material from their latest album “We Love Machine”.
For episode 005, resident DJ Thomas Sagstad was behind the decks. Enjoy the pumping house in the second half, as well as 30 minutes with Innotune selections in the beginning.
Innotune episode 008 had finnish trancer Darude in the mix. Listen or download this piece of fine EDM if you have’nt already.
And now, let’s have a look into the glass ball.
Who do you want to hear in the Innotune podcast in the future? Which DJ’s should we ask to be our guest mixers?
We want suggestions for interesting picks. Talents or established artists. But please make your wishes realistic.
Download a packed hour with loads of dubstep, drum’n'bass, house and trance.
Endal is your host, and guests of the episode is Tony Anthem & Axl Ender.
Episode ten is quite special. Here’s why: It’s record breaking. We have never before fitted in 28 tracks into one episode. It contains the very first dubstep guest mix. And we’ve reached the big ten.
The brilliant French label Kitsuné is represented with two tracks. Listeners will also be able to check out new beats from Steve Angello, Pete Tong & Dave Spoon, Stanislav Beta and Eriq Johnson.
