A few years ago the Eclectic Sessions was a show broadcast on DanceBiscuit.com by various resident DJ’s to show off their taste in music. The idea was to showcase a wide variety of musical styles of tunes that may not have fitted into their usual show formats.
After several years of an absence of the show it is now back! The idea and format hasn’t changed, but the delivery has. It will now reside on Mixcloud.com as a stream anytime kind of podcast for you all to enjoy.
This first episode is presented by myself (Electronomist), and future episodes will include original host Transient Motion and eventually many more DJ’s of different musical backgrounds.
So go and check out Eclectic Sessions Vol.1 and share, comment, like, and most of all enjoy!
Back in the days of DJ’s playing exclusively on vinyl records the most upfront rare and new tunes were purchased traded and acquired on what was known as
mostly these where made in short runs as the producers were not yet signed or were testing out new tunes in clubs on one off records or short runs.
Due to not having the exposure or money the major labels could provide this was the cheap and easy way of testing tunes on a crowd.
often these would become popular and end up released commercially and end up well known. This is the basis on what white labelz was formed,
a modern way to give up and coming artists the exposure they deserve
with the hope that the music will reach the right ears and get the producers the recognition they deserve.
Now that spoke out to me so I thought I’d try it out.
Here is the result…
I am now hoping to get involved with this project and would encourage any budding producers who are just not getting the listens and exposure they think they deserve to apply to get a video up on the channel (I will personally recommend any decent sounding tunes to the channel… my tune was the first on there and I hope they will use more in future and appreciate anything I may recommend).
The idea is to build up a community and gain more fans all round, and hopefully introduce artists to collaborate. That’s always a good thing in my book!
There is the Youtube page (obviously) and a Soundcloud account (no actual music on there but seems that’s the main point of discovery and I suppose any page can repost stuff… links on the Electronomist video go to my Soundcloud, artist page (here!) and Facebook).

It’s been too long since I posted anything here so I may as well open with a new tune (and FREE download) “The Return”.
I have decided to try my best to release more music, but that means spending less time tweaking endlessly and more time actually finishing stuff! This first one was born out of the desire to create the kind of Progressive music that made me love the older “Global Underground” CD’s; i.e. from a time when Progressive House and Trance intertwined and long tripped out repetitive mixes were more widely embraced.
I feel I’ve captured that vibe here on “The Return”.
