This Week’s Feature Stations

We recently had the pleasure of having indie-rocker David Boone and his band DAWNS come into our studio basement for the debut of the FUZZ Sessions. This station features several of the tracks that they performed, and music by artists that their sound is inspired by.

This station features a rather enjoyable smattering of “funk, disco, leftfield hip-hop, IDM, trip-hop, bass, chip, downtempo, soul, techo, scores, acid jazz…” that will satisfy your electronic music loving sensibilities without beating you over the head with formulaic electro pop.

DeeJayKen’s Radio Station created by DeeJayKen

Described as “a mix of 60s, 70s and 80s indie rock from icons such as Velvet Underground, the Kinks, Johnathan Richman, and R.E.M.” This station’s full of classics, and he been in steady rotation at the FUZZ offices in the past weeks.

Block Rockin Beats created by TheAdamJanes

A few from MTV’s AMP days. A straight throwback station that harkens back to the grungy electronic sounds of the 90′s…back when MTV actually played music videos.

 

Please report any bugs and continue posting suggestions here. We depend on your feedback to make FUZZ better!
