MC: So, does it lean in any specific direction? Is it alongside the lines of Afrobeats and jazz, and that variety of stuff?
Alan Henry: Yeah, a tiny bit far more potential jazz, a tiny upbeat, I would say. And in some cases, he’ll just roll out some Coltrane or some Miles Davis, or a little something that is genuinely, genuinely, not classic jazz, but jazz that you have in all probability listened to some of, in the past. But, other occasions it’ll just be a keep track of from a Japanese rapper, or a Senegalese lyricist who’s just setting up out and put out their to start with album. And he is apparently the only human being in the environment who’s at any time listened to it. So it really is wild, it really is wild. But it really is all fantastic. Which is the point. I’ve under no circumstances listened to a song on Freefall that I did not like, at minimum.
And then there are … and that is the base of the barrel. The prime of the barrel are the music that I immediately go to SoundCloud and conserve, or I will go to YouTube and include to a playlist, or a little something.
AS: The playlist you put with each other, the Pump It Up playlist?
AS: Alan, that was definitely outstanding. I was just wandering all-around. I really like that we put the whole, all of Beyonce mixed discographies on there. I was like, “Of course. Which is it. Which is all we have to have.”
AH: Yeah. That playlist is 142 music, eight hrs of audio. And an individual dared me to put the whole Beyonce Homecoming album in it. And I was like, “How dare you, dare me to do a point?” And so, I did. I just did. And a handful of individuals have observed, but not that several. Since you can just hit enjoy, and begin listening to it. And then an hour and a 50 percent into it, you just know, “Wow, there is a lot of Beyonce, in this.”
AS: You have been like, “Nobody’s talked about it, simply because all people was so joyful.”
AS: So, I was talking to Parker, who is a further just one of the product writers on staff. And he dropped a few of Vulfpeck music into Slack. And just one of them, I wished to vote as the new theme song for the Gadget Lab. It was like, “I’m a goods dude, cash will be expended,” or no matter what. And I was just like, “Oh my God, nailed it. Nailed it, Parker.” But, I forget the title of the song, proper now. Maybe we can put that, someplace.
MC: Yeah. We can put it in the exhibit notes.
MC: All proper. Properly, Freefall radio, I am likely to give it a shot simply because I’m always, always listening. I imagine the only way to walk as a result of this environment is with your eyes and your ears open up. So, thank you for that.
My suggestion is, it really is in essence, I have just been observing a lot of NHK Entire world programming. This is a news and way of living station, a tv station out of Tokyo. And in Japan, it really is just known as NHK Tokyo. And then, they also have the Entire world provider, which is an English language provider. And, it really is just a bunch of displays. Journey displays, heritage displays. There is certainly just one in which a human being receives on a educate, and just travels from just one city to a further, on a educate. And you invest 50 percent an hour with them, on the educate. It can be pretty remarkable.
There are a few of displays that I change to, each individual solitary time there is a new just one. And the just one that I’ve been acquiring way into over the previous handful of months is known as “Dining with the Chef.” It can be a cooking exhibit, and there is a handful of distinct formulation that are applied, to the cooking exhibit. Some displays are Subject matter A, and some displays are Subject matter B and some displays are Subject matter C. And, they are all shot on a rotating agenda, by distinct crews. And you under no circumstances know what you happen to be likely to get, from 7 days to 7 days.
