Ilictronix Podcast: The Legacy

"In this episode: Claude brings some Kraftwerk flavors. Adam goes Balearic.

We are live again for this week! As the strap-line says, this week I try something new by bringing an adaption and expansion of a post I did a while back called "A Model's Legacy". In it, we see how Kratwerk (specifically their early 1980's hit The Model) has, and continues to influences electronic music worldwide in its many forms. Not to discount the other non-electronic things its influenced, but we are an electronic music show mind, we take a trip from its home Germany to the UK, Japan and back again, and I hope you find it as interesting as I did to talk about and compile!

Adam treats us to some yet again more summery selections, though I was disappointed that his choices weren't all literally Balearic Beat, the precursor to Tropical House. Joking aside it's a cool rundown, I really dig Adam's ability to merge new and old stuff in his selections in a way that is so smooth (even if that Jai Paul track is technically both new and old at the same time). I'm aiming for a return to the strictly upbeat myself come next week, which I think will be Thursdays from now on due to Adam mentioning his slight schedule change in the episode. Nothing should change though, we are going up a little late today but that's because I got side tracked at home. Anyway, tracklist follows as per usual! Tracklist:
