From Mexico City : Radio 21 Million
Sharing creative music from mighty magic Mexico City, the center of the world - 2,400 meters high, 21 million hearts big, 100 thousand taxis, a cold and often wicked politic, and a thriving but oft under-appreciated arts scene, it's a city that's alive and vibrant and emerging into the international creative music conscience. With Radio 21 Million, Mexico City based musician Todd Clouser (A Love Electric, Ropeadope Sur) highlights the creative music happening in his adopted hometown by visiting with its artists. Here, musicians become the programmers as we uncover a bit of Mexico City’s jazz past, its eclectic present, and its promise of a future as Latin America’s creative epicentre.

Episode V
Pop and rock artists have long turned to jazz and experimental musics when reinvention, or a bit of artistic evolution, is called for. In this episode, we celebrate visionary new music from the late David Bowie from his celebrated new record “Blackstar”, his band on the record a group of noted jazz and beyond musicians. JT Bates’ new record “Open Relationships”, a record of pieces and sonic explorations produced entirely by the drum set, shares two tracks and we celebrate new music from Mexico City with Centarvs, Amada Tovalin, and Daniel Zepeda. The texture, experimentation and embrace of emotion, the challenge - we will not settle for the predictable - I find, often uninhibited, in the best of jazz and improvised musics also has a place in popular music, as we hear with Porcupine Tree, Wilco, and a classic soul track from the Contours. The Episode concludes with Beck’s mix of the heartbreaking but triumphant “Seven” from David Bowie’s “Hours”. Music is possibility.
