Femi Flaming, better known by his artist persona of Sadnoise, is an architecture student at RISD with a focus on acoustics and programming sound. For the past 5 years, he’s been making experimental electronic music, starting mostly by making house and overtime evolving into designing his own sounds as opposed to using samples. 

If you missed it, Sadnoise recently graced the Blast Radio airwaves as part of our Summer Series. On the broadcast he played music from his previous and upcoming release, as well as some songs that have heavily influenced the music he is interested in creating recently. He talked about gear, the importance of modular synthesis in his production workflow, and its relation to the idea of data birds.

We recently spoke with him to learn more about his taste, inspirations, and what he’s got going on. Read on to learn about the man behind the broadcast.

Miss Tahloulah May is a modular synthesist and composer that uses DAWless workflow and has a signature sound mixing techno, electro, and hip hop. Originally born in Paramaribo, Surinam, she moved to Holland at the age of 5 and grew up in a music-filled household, birthing her love of the art and the start of her journey analyzing sounds.  

These days, she uses her modular system (nicknamed SapG), drum machines, and live drums to make music. She chose modular synthesis because of the endless creative possibilities, the challenges, and the authenticity it brings.

A very fun recent addition to the Blast Radio airwaves, Dank Zappa has been rocking speakers and, in their own words, “Turning your old favorite songs into your new favorite song.”

Known for eclectic mashups and tunes to make you dance (and scratch your head until you figure out the samples he’s using), Dank Zappa is a pleasure to the ears and the mind. 

We recently spoke with them to learn more about the artist behind the mash up.

Hitting the digital airwaves live from the ‘Cosmic Conservatory’ in Pittsburgh, PA every Monday night, Professor Jeffy brings both an inspirational story and a crate-digger’s dreamland of classic tracks. 

A retired attorney and lifelong music collector, Jeff has survived two bouts with cancer and is not battling a third (which he explained is why he’s currently short on hair). Having gotten a bit stir crazy between cancer treatments and the COVID lockdown, Jeff has turned to Blast Radio as a way to pass that the time and get in touch with his extensive music collection.
