RC 198: Hipnagogic 1 – Witch Space

Otherwise known as

ђ†♀ğπ▲Ģ☻ğ↕⊆ ░ 1 ► Witch Space

Chillwave, hypnagogic, hauntology, ghost drone, zombie rave, witch house, post-dubstep – all words for new genres in 2010, and some are the same…in fact I think it’s all one, maybe two genres and rather than an invented genre musically they do have similarities.

So I’ve gone exploring what these genres could possibly mean…

    Great podcast Tim, I thought there was a thread through some of the tunes I’d been hearing on the interweb now I know.
    lol the OoOoOo pronunciation – very Scoobie Doo.
    Good music in a similar vein from my second favourite podcast – the first being Radio Clash of course -the monthly Listening Pleasures podcast www,nuevaforma.com
