New genres and styles of music are developing in these cities and towns faster than the mainstream can keep up with. As they began to shine a light on some of these developing scenes, BTR DJs decided that a more in depth look was called for. No other station was doing it and, judging from the tidal wave of positive emails, people clearly wanted to hear it.
“One of the most exciting aspects of my job is finding a thriving music scene in a city, as well as realizing a genre of music is seeing an advancement and evolution,” said Ethan Kanat, BTR’s Program Director. “BTR has experienced a phenomenal growth as we reach 2 million listeners a week and we wanted to showcase what we believe to be the best music in the genres we play as well as the most vibrant music communities throughout the country.”
BTR launched their specialty show series with a spotlight on Arkain Records, an innovative record label that has helped turned Gainesville, FL into an indie rock hot spot. In addition, DJ RePete hosts the best in independent dance and electronica with Club Cavern. Future shows will include an in-depth look at experimental hip-hop, singer/songwriters and burgeoning scenes in cities such as Atlanta and San Francisco.
