techno // house // eclectic // worldmusic // underground
THE MARIANAS TRENCH SOUND The Marianas Trench Sound aims to bring you music from the unexplored depths of sound. The focus of the show is on underground,under-appreciated and unheard of music from across the world as well as the good stuff that floats to the surface. House, Techno, Disco and Hip-Hop will be the mainstay of the show but the roots of these genres will be honoured with Funk, Soul,Jazz and Reggae being explored as well as how these genres have branched out into the other forms and taken on global flavours. The show also aims to educate with the Sampling as an Art feature were we will take a piece of music and chart its journey of how different artists have interpreted and re-interpreted a sound. The global focus is also important in tying in the exploratory nature of the show in finding new and interesting forms of music from the Cumbia music of Colombia to experimental and futuristic sounds of Glasgow natives Rustie and Hudson Mohawke.

17/11/2017 // Japanese City Pop Special
Japanese City Pop Special
This week we're delving into all Japanese Citypop. So expect plenty of sweet and corny jazz and funk infused pop hits from the likes of Tatsuro Yamashita, Mariya Takeuchi, Makoto Matushita and my all time fave Haroumi Hosono.
Harry is also the focus of sampling as an art when we explore his song Firecracker which he made as part of the amazing Yellow Magic Orchestra. We chart its use from De La Soul to Todd Terje AND of course as you all know its role in J-Lo vs Mariah Carey beef.
Starts the show as always with varied nice bits: from local group Lylo, to an album of Warm earth music for plants...and the people who love them and that super Geoffrey Landers compilation released on Music From Memory.
