So I'm pitching a dance/electonic specialty show to my boss. I work at a commercial radio station in Seattle and he's totally down with the idea as long as I play remixes of our core artists (think mainstream alternative)
So far I've got...
mgmt (justice, soulwax)
phoenix (they have a whole remix album)
yeah yeah yeahs (atrak)
Florence and the machine (jack beats)
...I know I look out of the loop, but i could really use some pointers. just trying to get good music on the radio...
Anything helps! thanks!
EDIT: this is the artist playlist I sent to my boss for him to approve. if you have other ideas for additions you think would fit the format those are welcome was well!
