11.19.07 - Electro Funkology

Stop press: Please note that I'm reuploading this show, I'm currently using Seagull FTP as my client and I've never known a program to act like this, it has truncated some shows in the past but this time it's excelled itself by appending the upload to a previously canceled one, how it did it with the files being named differently only God knows! I'm glad I checked the actual audio, I check to make sure the link is valid of course.. but anyway, my apologies for this, the new file should be up within 45 mins to an hour, and I'll be checking it out again.. Meanwhile, if anyone knows of another free FTP prog for the PC, please let me know, I'm fed up with Seagull FTP!

DJ Fizz checking in, one two..

I should have posted in advance but sometimes I leave it till the last minute just in case I can get a show done, but work has been, well, work, which has stopped me from being able to do last week's show, but everything should be back to normal this week coming up. Looking back I can see that 07 has been the least consistent year so far, which is something I want to rectify, what with the upheaval of being a (newish) dad, and other things, it's been challenging is all I'll say! But never fear, things are progressing and plans are afoot. ;)

The best way to keep up to date is to subscribe of course, this helps by letting you know when the next show is available rather than you checking in, there are many programs that cater for podcasting, a good site is http://www.podcatchermatrix.org/ or alternatively you can use Apple's i-Tunes, for Mac & PC which is definitely worth a look, that mainly goes to PC users as Mac users get it installed with the OS. A good place to start to subscribe is http://www.electrofunkology.org/podcast, you can choose your options from there.

I just want to put a shout out to a few people, John @ oldschoolhiphop.com, the Radio Crew @ www.westcoastpioneers.com, the Electrolab Crew, Cozmo D, all the podcast carriers who help get the show out to people, especially www.podlounge.com, also big up my man lb_ip, TG1980 & jimmysmithson.

I might have some exciting news regarding AD2007 for all the UK and non-travel-shy European heads for next week from the main man Speedyjay, so don't forget to subscribe to Electro Funkology! :)

Oh, and lastly, I have played other people's mixes on my show from time to time, it's not something I feature too regularly, but if you have done a mix that fits the electro funkology format, shoot me an email at electrofunkologyATyahoo.com, and while we're on the subject of email, I will be migrating to a new email address, something like djfizz(AT)electrofunkology.org once I get that all configured correctly, just a heads up.

Post Vacation Blues....

Sorry for the silence, things a bit hectic since I got back from vacation, catching up with stuff and such, I think driving 3,500 miles caught up with me once I got back! I've pulled something in my chest which is quite painful too so I'm waiting to feel a bit better before the next show, although I'm thinking I should have one for Monday, being that I found a bunch of cool records while in San Francisco...

Apologies to all.

Classic Electro Funkology Pt 2!

This one I dug out is from 11.08.03, and was the first show I did after getting back from the UK to see the ill-fated UK Fresh 03 event, I shuffled a planned trip back there to see family to coincide with it and the whole episode was pretty crazy, what with ticket holders being phoned and being asked if they wanted to upgrade to VIP tickets and such.. The legendary Sahara Nights gig took place the night before and was supposed to be the warm up, but that turned into the main event and it was an excellent night, getting to meet a bunch of EE crew, and thanks to Beagle I got to play back to back after I just showed up with some tunes! Morgan Kahn still has my ticket money, if he lets me mix a 'proper' classic Streetsounds Electro I might forget about it ;)

Anyway, enough of the waffle and onto the show....


Oh, and btw, I'm on vacation so no playlist till I get back ok? :)

Peace, Unity, Love & Old Skool,

DJ Fizz

PS Congrats to my brother and his wife for having a little baby boy born July 21, 2007.

Podcast only......

There has been question of what this means and I think it's right to expand on this, I done it in Q&A, or FAQ style, this might help, if there are any more questions then feel free to either email me or post a comment response, I will keep it pertaining to the podcast rather than divulge other specifics, I can elaborate on those in a private manner if those who want to know, and who know me, want to contact me.

I'll start out with David Farrell's initial question posted recently and carry on from there, I'll try to keep the responses as brief as possible.. anyone who knows me will know that I tend to waffle on... :)

  1. Hey, so how does your statement of "Electro Funkology will be a podcast only show" affect your appearances on Global Funk Radio, or does it?
    Unfortunately, due to irrevocable management differences I've had to cease my affiliation with globalfunkradio.com and new episodes of my show will no longer be carried by them.

  2. So, how does that affect Electro Funkology?
    Well, in reality it doesn't affect Electro Funkology hardly at all, the show will still be recorded live in the same format, the only difference is that I won't be connecting to globalfunkradio.com's server when recording the show. Nothing else changes, in fact it should give me more freedom to keep it going weekly due to the fact that I won't have to skip shows if something comes up on a Saturday afternoon, which is something that is happening more frequently now that I have my son to think about. The only other last thing is that I need to make new jingles..

  3. But what about the audience aspect?
    This is a tricky question, but is probably best approached by first saying that the amount of people tuning in via the podcast for the last, er, 12 months since launching it have quite substantially eclipsed that of those who tuned in live to the show on the station, so in effect, y'all are my audience. Netradio is fickle and over the last while it's become increasingly apparant that we're entering an on-demand paradigm when it comes to content and other media buzzwords..., in other words people are opting to pick up their entertainment, whatever format, in their time and are less inclined to hang around and catch something live if they don't have to, this is especially true of online content, unless promoted in a much more focused manner.

  4. OK, but what about those who tuned in live?
    It is that which I most regret about the decision to leave as this is where the effect would be most felt, I can only thank everyone who tuned in regularly or irregularly to the show and/or turned up in the chat room, I've certainly had some great times and I hope they have too. Maybe in the future....

  5. Is that it for Electro Funkology and radio then?
    Absolutely not, Electro Funkology always was it's own independent entity, and a new home on another station, exclusive or syndicated, could very well be a possibility, there are many avenues open and that's been the most daunting part in a way. For now it will continue as a podcast and I think it could quite happily carry on being such but I'm always open to offers, if anyone has any proposals to put forward I would be happy to consider them. Email me or message on myspace
I'll add any more questions as they are asked which are not answered here.

A new phase....

Sorry for the silence over the last couple of weeks, things have been going on in the background that has affected my ability to do last week's show, electro funkology is a free show for everyone to download but obviously Daddy has to put food on the table so there are times when work has to take priority, the last two weeks have been such a time, probably the worst time to happen being that I've tried twice, unsuccessfully, to host an anniversary show. I think the time for that has passed now unfortunately...

So next week will be returning to normal, no big hoo-har, but we have a winner of the competition whom I will announce, apologies to all entrants who've been waiting to hear if they won or not, but I will tell you the prize that will sent out, and that is:

Sealed copies of;
Roxanne Shante - I'm Fly Shante
Almighty El-Cee - We Have Risen/School's Out
Man Parrish - Hey There Homeboys
Donald Dee Bowden - At The Party

and a new copy of the recently released
Omega II/Debonaire & Exzakt - Sonic Boom (original) / Ignition (Remixes)

Not a bad prize I'm sure you will all agree and definitely worth entering the competition for. :) Maybe the sound of people kicking themselves for not entering might be heard too. ;) Well, don't forget there will always be next year and quite possibly a couple of competitions in the future also!

The last bit of news I have is that Electro Funkology will be a podcast only show from now on. Till next time, put the boogie in ya body :)

Back in business..

I've gone through and fixed all the posts and due to the way that they appear I've had to go back to square one and republish each one in order, oldest to newest. I didn't consider the fact that it's entirely possible that i-tunes or whatever may see all these as brand new episodes and try to download them, I hope not and am extremely sorry if this has been the case and has caused problems for you, please email me at electrofunkologyATyahooDOTcom if you have any problems.
Electro Funkology blog is down for maintenance and will be back up as soon as everything has been fixed, turns out the migration to Blogger v-1.0 or whatever hasn't been as successful as it could have been in my case.. I'm having to go back and fix each blog entry individually, gee, thanks Google! Oh well, turns out that my original way of posting wasn't that efficient anyway so maybe it's been a blessing in disguise as I've found a much quicker way to go about this. Sorry for the inconvenience and any confusion. I'm on the case and I'll be back ASAP. BTW; don't worry about feedburner looking like it's going back in time with dates, that's just me working my way backwards.. Fun! :)
