Brian Eno once said that "the problem with computers is that there is not enough Africa in them."
It's a problem that electronic dance music artists tried to solve back in the 1990s, when the exotic sounds and kinetic polyrhythms of what we now call world music were added to the mix by hyper-creative DJs and studio producers. From beaches in India to dance floors around the world, the style has morphed into a thousand colors and variations, and things have never been quite the same since.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, we ride the good-time vibe of summer with a program of beat-y, border-crossing ambient/trance music called EXOTRONICA. Music is by SHPONGLE, ALVIN KRAMER, DREAM JUNGLE, LUMIN, and GUNNARD DUBOZE.
