A Nice Week of DPS Laden Podcasts.

The music of Dead Poets Society has been listed at The Podsafe Music Network for just over a week now and we’ve been fortunate enough to have had our songs Halo (dead poets society mix), Invisible Monsters, Synners, Fire Bolt (live at the zebra lounge), and Mohawk (dead poets society mix) all played on GD’s Bite Size Bonus, A Better Day and
Bump You Up.

I’ve mentioned GD’s Bite Size Bonus in a previous post a few days back. I can’t express how cool Green Dragon’s show is. It is really remarkable what kind of global music program he is able to put together five days a week, Monday through Friday. If you are a music fan, I highly recommend this program. I can’t get over the fact that he played “The Electric Haze” last week and has generously played our Collide remix “Halo (dead poets society mix)”, “Synners” (influenced by the novel by Pat Cadigan), and our Hotboxed remix “Mohawk (dead poets society mix) this week.

That our music was played on A  Better Day, the fitness podcast,  was a bit of a surprise to me as I had never considered that someone might enjoy hearing our song “Invisible Monsters” (inspired by Chuck Palahniuk’s novel of the same name) while working up a sweaty lather. Okay, I had considered it, but I had always envisioned someone working up an entirely different kind of sweaty lather. lol

Bump You Up is a brand new podcast. Our song “Fire Bolt (live from the Zebra lounge)” appeared in the second episode. DJ Trashy, the host, indicates that he created the show as a resource for podcasters to find “intros, outros, musical beds and jingles”. I’ll be honest, the podcast sounds like it is still settling into a groove and finding its way. Although you can still hear the rough edges  it is clearly heartfelt. It remains to be seen how the show will mature and develop.


DPS remixes Minefield.

Awhile back we announced that we were remixing some tracks from a cool darkwave band called MINEFIELD. While two of our tracks will be released on the MINEFIELD remix album due to be released in the spring of 2003, all three songs are available for listening at Soundclick.com/deadpoetssociety.

Wrapped in Wire reviews The Electric Haze

Wrapped in Wire

This act creates great electronic instrumentals. Their music is very full and well textured with a lot happening in it. Since these are instrumental tracks relying simply on the music without vocals, the music needs to be good to hold your interest. And the music is superb. It mixes a lot of different genres within it such as EBM, techno, trance, tribal, ambient, experimental, etc.

This is pure electronic music created with programming, sampling and synths. There is a lot of variety throughout this release with each and every track sounding different. Some stand out more than others, but everything is good here.

There is a mixture of structured music and experimental music to be found here. I do find the structured music to be a little easier to listen to and enjoy. But the experimental music is interesting in its own way as well.

If you enjoy varied electronic music without any vocals, this CD is for you.
