Since its launch in January 1998, The Urban Landscapes Radioshow has earned a following for its well-respected showcase of independent club music. Airing both on-air and online, the show is downloaded in over 30 countries on a given month. In June 2005, the podcast edition of the radioshow was made available for the world. The radio show can also be heard on Radio Pellenera out of Milan, Italy, Rodon FM 95 out of Serres, Greece as part of DJ Nova’s late-night family of shows, and now the Giant Step Jukebox at Giant Step’s web site.
Jazzy and soulful club culture is what the show’s all about, continuing on its global search for the finest tunes…whether they are sounds that help push music forward, or lost treasures found and posthumously released to the world. Out of the comfort zone and into a never-ending musical journey is what the show constantly strives to achieve.
Along with scores of pre-released music, a number of guestmixes have dropped on the show. Exclusives mixes came courtesy of Club Yahoo from Helsinki, DJ Cosmo from Bitches Brew in London, the Al-Haca Soundsystem from Germany (now based in Vienna), DJ Nova (Nova Planet/Rodon FM 95, Greece), Ben Mono (Compost Records, Germany), Bigga Bush (Stereo Deluxe, Germany), the MFP Collective (Flyin’ High, The Netherlands) Edground (Groove Da Kiss/Grooveland, Brazil) and Gerd w/DJ Pathless (4Lux, The Netherlands) among others.
