Eclectic DJ Mix Monday

While the UK-based FACT magazine surveys a broad range of popular music content, its regular mix series tends to focus on electronic and hip-hop. Since January, however, the website has featured three distinctive mixes that buck this general trend: Peanut Butter Wolf's 24-hour soul music mix for Valentine's day; the Wild Beasts's eclectic, short-and-sweet mix of classical, black metal, poetry, rock, and folk in support of their new album Present Tense; and Slowdive's rock-and-shoegaze mix compiling many of their inspirations in celebration of the band's reunion.

A new genre making...waves!

Is Chillwave the Next Big Music Trend? - Wiki: Chillwave is a debated genre of music where artists are often characterized by their heavy use of effects processing, synthesizers, looping, sampling, and heavily filtered vocals with simple melodic lines. Its musical predecessors are diverse and include the synthpop of the 1980s, shoegaze, ambient, musique concrète and various types of music outside of the Western World. In this case, nostalgia of 80s synthpop is filtered through a distorted lens, re-envisioning the era in a more vague and lo-fi sense. Just don't call them that. You can always check in at the Hipster Runoff (the birthplace of the term) for news about the vaguely new subgenre. [more inside]
