Not enough jibber-jabber now that EMG Radio has gone monthly(or bi-monthly, whatever)? We didn't think so and we certainly love the sound of our own voices so we've added a new feature here on the website. EMGmini Audio Blog! For all those random thoughts and news updates that come up between each episode yet somehow slip our minds. Sometimes it'll be information on new album releases, sometimes it'll be website and event updates, and sometimes it'll be the total random rantings you've all grown so accustom to.
In the tabs up top you can click "Audio Blog" tab for the EMGmini Audio Blog page or for your convenience check out the first entry right here:
This month on EMG Radio we are joined by the elusive Josh L. of Dickey Rockhard. In this "half-cocked" show we salvage what was left from a software malfunction and discuss what exactly we think 'techno' is, the science behind the vinyl vs. digital debate, and Josh's unique take on the music making process. Enjoy!

Louis Kiefer is an America electronic music producer/guitarist currently hailing from Omaha, Nebraska. Kiefer's music usually falls within the experimental electronic genres be it his involvement as one-third of the collaboration project Three Blind Minds or his solo project Subliminal Hit. Three Blind Minds incorporates a wide variety of styles including hip-hop, electronica, and dubstep wherein Kiefer shares in the writing, production, and vocal duties with his band mates while his Subliminal Hit project focuses on a more psychedelic ambient sound.
In a recent interview on EMG Radio Kiefer confesses to being an "FX junkie" who has always "just wanted to make noise". In 2005 he made the jump from grunge-metal guitarist to computer based production and has been working under the Subliminal Hit title churning out a constant flow of his brand of "structured noise". Many of these recordings were kept away from the public eye until recently when began releasing tracks online.
Kiefer just dropped his official debut album as Subliminal Hit entitled 'Subliminal Deep-Good Times'. The album is a collection of tracks originally written and produced between 2005 and 2010 all revamped and remastered for this release. In the EMG Radio interview he went on to further say he wanted to release the older works before moving on to an album of new material as a way to represent the evolution of Subliminal Hit. in addition to 'Subliminal Deep-Good Times' Kiefer's work can be heard on the Three Blind Minds album releases 'Lost Prophecies' and 'Ghosts In The Collective Vol. I' as well as exclusive, new tracks featured on each of the EMG compilation albums. All of which are available for free streaming and download.

You can't keep the beast down! After a four month long sabbatical EMG Radio is back! This week its the best of both worlds as we sit down for an in-person one on one interview with Louis Kiefer, EMG Radio co-host, member of Three Blind Minds, and the man behind Subliminal Hit.
We reflect upon season 1 of EMG Radio before moving into the long overdue interview where we grill Lou about his musical past and upcoming Subliminal Hit album. The line begins to blur as this interview veers towards a conversation between two long time friends in this unique hybrid episode.
In celebration of December 21st, 2012 and the Mayan calender's prophetic non-event the Electronic Musicians Group dropped a brand new compilation album on the world. EMG Presents EOTW is a free 15 track album with a twist. Its an ode to doomsday and was created in appropriate doomsday fashion...with only 24 hours to complete it!
About 24 hours before the end of the Mayan calender (and what many joked and some believed to coincide with the end of humanity) the idea was presented to the group by autonami. So we challenged ourselves to create an entire album from scratch as if those 24 short hours were all we had. To test ourselves further many of these songs were created with a time limit of ONE HOUR! From nonexistence to completion to release in 24 hours. An experiment that not only succeeded but we is one of our best collective works to date. Luckily the world did not end and you have that much more time before the next apocalypse, whatever it may be, to listen to EMG Presents EOTW. Also notable is it features many long time EMG members as well as several brand new members. Enjoy!
This week on EMG Radio its an all out sausage-fest in this free-for-all, overdue, election day episode. Joining the regular hosts is a myriad of special guests including Joe of Space Disc Jockey, Daniel of Thaumiel Sonozaki and Dracan Ceolan, Drazen of Ezra Yates and Dracan Ceolan, and Bryan Atticus of A Drowning Angel. As usual, things get weird as the conversation roams a gamut of topics including the presidential elections, Mitt Romney's spy drone, jazz in the pants, road sex, and throat dragons. The music isn't forgotten though as we check in on the guests' current projects and spin some wicked good tracks. Enjoy!
This week on EMG Radio we have a conversation with Michael Bradley of Glass. Recorded after last week's interview with Bradley we let the tape roll on a lengthy conversation which lead to this week's new back-and-forth format of show. Topics include new music by EMG members, the EMG group itself, dubstep, and the state of mainstream music now verse the '90s. A good time is had in this "never meant for broadcast" chat and for the first time ever EMG Radio goes all talk, no music. Enjoy!
