Whether you are listening in your space, outer space or time space welcome to 'Beats of all Nations' hosted by myself Dark Mart. I aim to take you on a musical journey exploring Detroit Techno, Chicago House, Electronica and its roots in Soul, Funk, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Afro-Beat, Krautrock & Post Punk. From Carl Craig, Fela Kuti, Kraftwerk, Throbbing Gristle, Gangstarr, & Aphex Twin to Larry Heard, John Carpenter, George Clinton & Sun Ra. This is predominantly a show about rhythm & emotion in music. I'll be playing the music I love and sharing my record collection of 25 years. Yes, it's vinyl all the way so you'll have to excuse the odd crackle & pop. You'll probably not like all I play but hopefully you'll hear something you've never heard before which will take you on your own journey of musical exploration and discovery. If you would like to get in touch to discuss the show or music in general feel free to do so and I hope you enjoy the show.

09/03/2020 // Generation X
Generation X is the name of the generation generally held as being people born between 1965 and 1980.
As a generation X'er I decided to do a show based around that era. We were a lucky generation I think, depending on when you were born you will have seen the advent of 3 or 4 ground breaking musical genres during your formative years; Punk, Hip-Hop/Electro, House and Techno and you could even put Jungle & Drum and Bass in there as well.
There were a lot of sub-genres of course and also the incredibly rich cultures that grew up around the music particularly Hip-Hop with it's clothing, trainers, graffiti and breaking.
During this show I'm just going to focus on the early 90's and whilst I listened to a variety of music then, I'm just going to concentrate on the early 90's dance and techno scene.
