Podcast: #1

I’ve toyed with the idea of creating themed podcasts for the longest time, and basing each one around an individual producer’s or session musician’s work has long been at the forefront of my ‘theme’ wish list.  I wrote a short-lived series of articles about producers for Liberation Frequency, again, focusing on some of their best stuff, but this idea brings me screaming into the current century.

Episode #1 of our ‘get to know’ series has kicked off with incredible success with Raphael Saadiq’s production wizardry under our respective spotlight this month.  I say ‘incredible’ success and, by my standards, I’m not actually exaggerating – the views, plays, favourite-ings, downloads are increasing by the day so there’s clearly a whole host of Saadiq fans out there and I’m thrilled to have connected with.

During the podcast, we announced our next producer whose music I’m chomping at the bit to showcase, and it’s Jack Splash – we’re about 2 weeks away from having that one uploaded, and we’re eyeing several other producers and musicians for podcasts including Questlove, James Poyser, Thomas Brenneck, Jay Dee, amongst many others, and with his recent work on Booker T’s and Trombone Shorty’s respective new albums, I’ve just completed the playlist for a second show dedicated to Raphael Saadiq’s productions (apologies, however, as it may be some time before you get to hear that one).

I’ll end with one of the best teases ever… In further exciting news to readers of The Blue-in-Green Blog, exciting interviews have just been secured with Jesse Fischer (from Soul Cycle), along with Myron (from Myron & E).  Our exclusive features will be available to readers of the site over the next few weeks.
