VorteX (Mix)

Vortex

Since 1995, X-Rated (a weekly three hour radio show on dutch alternative music radio channel Kink FM) has been a “platform for ‘difficult’ music”. Experimental, avant-garde, poetry, soundscapes: uncensored and uncompromised.

(The FM in the channel’s name is somewhat misleading, since it’s a cable radio station that can also be received via internet or satellite).

X-Rated‘s existence for more than 15 years is nothing short of remarkable, because Kink FM (daughter of Veronica Broadcasting company) is a commercial station, while the music X-Rated features is about the opposite of “commercial”. Since dutch public radio has ended (almost) all of the experimental radio shows, X-Rated is about the last dutch program hosting experimental electronic music.

Needless to say that I’m very very proud to have X-Rated broadcast a full one-hour mix, especially created for this occasion. This mix was broadcast on the May 23, 2010 show (the first day of Pentecost).

Vortex was especially created for X-Rated. Thanks to Bob Rusche for broadcasting this on his show!

  1. Hi Peter, I’ve been enjoying your Ambient Podcasts lately and thought I should let you know. Please keep doing it, they are really enjoyable. This one had a very dark feel to it. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed listening to artists i’ve never heard and some I’m very familiar with mixed in an original way like this. It’s really a very valuable resource. So thanks.

    Nee, deze mix is (mixen zijn) niet op CD uitgebracht. Dat kan ook niet vanwege auteursrechten.

    Je kunt ze uiteraard hier wel downloaden en zelf op CD branden, voor eigen gebruik.
