The FRISKY Loves series brought underground scenes from across the globe to listeners everywhere.
One of the most wonderful things about Underground Electronic Music is its global connection, the universal language of the music appeals to people around the world with no borders, no judgements, and no limits. When I was first introduced to the music, I loved the idea that a track could be written in the UK, remixed in Japan, released in The Netherlands, and spun in the US, and everyone along that line would feel a deep connection with the result. Today, the connections are made even easier. The music can travel instantly around the world to unite its listeners with its magic, inspiring DJs and producers to share their perspectives of what it means to them. Coming from different backgrounds and surrounded by different landscapes, each artist has a distinct viewpoint that influences their sound, that when shared, can bring others into their world and communicate in ways that words cannot.
The “FRISKY Loves” series takes this to heart, with monthly showcases that broadcast the energy of unique underground music scenes from across the globe. It’s a place where DJs can share the sound that drives their lives and connects people in their communities, while influencing others every where. Underground electronic music reminds us that we are all in this together, the rhythms and sounds that move my soul will also move yours, regardless of where we grew up, where we live, or what we believe in. We can all believe in the music, and work together to bring that vision to light.
This year, FRISKY showcased a variety of countries, each bringing a unique perspective to the music. From the truly underground in Iran, to the continuously influential scene of Belgium, FRISKY provided a place for dedicated and passionate DJs of all experiences to share their sound to the whole world.
