BeatConscious on Live365

Just like a regular radio broadcast, the streams originating from Live365 do not give advance notice of playing any particular song or set ... that's part of what keeps 'em legal.  However, individual broadcasters can supplement the L365 stream by providing information on their personal websites, so this page will tell you what you need to know about the BeatConscious broadcast.  (Learn more about my Live365 stream here.)

Through the kind intervention of DJ CMG ( and I now have a "What's Playing Now" window for the Live365 Broadcast ... major respect to the man for his generosity in helping me get this element added to BeatConscious!

Current playlist -- around 23 hours of music --as of October 12, 2008, the mixes in rotation are (generally in this order):

"Style" is just a general guide ... in any downtempo mix, you are likely to hear lots of influences from the world of acid jazz / nujazz, house, atmospheric drum'n'bass, world beat, trip hop, etc.  For an up-close look at my concepts about the varieties of electronic music, visit the Style Guide page and explore the genre definitions and examples available there.
