The Melting Pot 8.7.12 Beloved Festival Preview

We believe that the presentation of diverse expressions of sacred music at a single venue demonstrates their common Origin and our shared relationship as a global community of contemporary devotees.

Through spiritual practices, we listen to the Divine communicate in the language of the Divine; through art and music, we express to humanity in the language of humanity. Each tradition communicates the Mystery and Love of the Divine in the language of a people, place and time. The current emergence of electronic dance music is for millions the language of their people, place and time.

THE MELTING POT 4/3/2012 8-10pm Featured Artist Filastine

Tune in Tuesday 4/3 from 8-10pm (pst) for THE MELTING POT

Featured Artist - FILASTINE

I will be speaking with FILASTINE about the long awaited "LOOT" which drops today, his upcoming show @RECESS, Future collaborations and his cross-continental inspiration. Win tickets to...Recess w/ Filastine, Heyoka, AfroQBen, and Clætron

Grey Filastine is an audio-visual artist born in Los Angeles, based in Barcelona, and most often nomadic. He composes a dense transnational bass music that collides the lowest frequencies with the highest-level beat science, acoustic strings, voices, and lofi street noises. Performing up to a hundred concerts per year, Filastine uses percussion to control loops and synchronized video from a heap of electronics wired to an amplified shopping cart. You may have seen him at a sweaty Tokyo nightclub, a football stadium in Casablanca, a respected euro-fest like Sónar, in a parking lot in Borneo, or touring the US withlikes of Beats Antique or Bassnectar.

Blow up my facebook if you want to.

Craig Burk

It's Craig. I used to host a Sunday evening show and we met one time at the studio.I am interested in how you layer the sounds. I found some of the CDs on your 2/10 playlist on Amazon but now have to assume you were layering tracks. Curious about your playlist. On 2/10, I tuned in at about 9:30 and was very impressed despite my hither-to strong reservations about much electronica. You created a really a nice mix that was not dragged down by a too-obvious 4/4 beat. (I can't handle too much 4/4 on floor.) Will send my email address to you via your name since KBOO may not be OK with my posting it here.

Where is the playlist for 2/10/09

Where is your playlist for tonight. The last 30 minutes or so were pretty good and countered my belief that the beat stuff can be pretty much "you get the point after about two minutes."

GSAF Music

You have been *totally* killing it for the last twenty minutes. Thank you for the music.

Kick ass Beats J

Lovin your show!!!! Thanks for being a voice for our community!!! Peace, Tluv

Melting Pot

Big ups from Nor Cal Tomato
Keep it bumpin'

Dynamic beats

I wanted to say I think you've got some pretty stellar jams being mixed and dropped on your show. I really enjoy when you blend different ethnic genre's, especially when the sitar is involved. Great stuff! Keep it coming.
