DB7



The ghostly visage of Jack White haunts DB's seventh BLURRINGradio mix, with tunes by his bands The White Stripes and The Dead Weather both making appearances, alongside a song by his wife, Karen Elson and Electric Six, who, back in the days when they were called The Wildbunch, frequently caroused with the peppermint dandy. White forerunners Led Zeppelin practically gave birth to the man, while White protégés Arctic Monkeys keep his spirit--alive enough on its own--even more so; meanwhile, White contemporaries Spoon and The Brian Jonestown Massacre offer their respective interpretations of their similar musical influences. Likewise, the spirit of New Order, who is also present on this mix, serves as muse to such contemporary bands as The Black Ghosts, Working For A Nuclear Free City, Tame Impala and The Whip, while the music of accustomed loners Blonde Redhead, Mixylodian, WhoMadeWho, Ms. John Soda, Danton Eeprom, Jamie Jones and Burning Spear stand, unsurprisingly, alone. This is a self-reflexive playlist: one song ends and, before you can get its sound out of your head, there it is again, coming out of the reverentially inventive minds of the next band.



Much thanks to all the great labels behind these artists: 4AD, A Records, Atlantic Records, Crosstown Rebels, Deaf Dumb & Blind, Domino Recording Company, Factory Records, Foundation Records, Gomma, IAMSOUND Records, Merge Records, Modular Recordings, Morr Music, Razor & Tie, Southern Fried Records, Third Man Records, V2 Records, Virgin Records, Warner Bros.

RADIO SERIES

As a kid in London, DB used to fall asleep at night with a transistor radio hidden under his pillow. He has been addicted to hearing new music ever since. Here, he brings that music to you. 

This is not a music show that's restricted to a particular genre, or even a specific decade, although it has an emphasis on indie rock with electronic elements or electronic music that's not simply for the dance floor. It's a 90-minute mixtape-style show that is as musically open-minded as the musical landscape is wide.
