Highly recommended: Rhythm Incursions

Rhythm Incursions Like many of us, when I first heard of podcasting, I thought: “Great! Another source for interesting music!”. I explored the podcast directories I could find at the time but was quickly disappointed by the lack of quality music programmes. Until now, I only subscribed to 2 podcasts: BBC Radio 4’s In Our Time and Benjamin Walker’s Theory of Everything; both are talk radio shows although TOE contains some nice background music. Anyway, my point today is that I have finally found a really good music podcast: Rhythm Incursions. It comes from the excellent Resonnance fm radio station. Here’s how they describe the podcast:

“The Rhythm Incursions podcast is arguably the first ever music radio show to be podcast with the complete consent and involvement of the record labels it supports. Tagging itself as “picking up where hip hop stops”, the show covers all kinds of divergent beats, from the glitched out beats of the Planet Mu label to the leftfield hip hop of Bully Records, from the smoked out Crooklyn dub of the Wordsound stable to the mashed out junglism of the Mashit label. Trust us, this is a show you do not want to miss…”
