JE² Prog is a, handpicked, monthly playlist focusing on a different Prog subgenre or theme. (The Latest Mix will be on the Top and than every post below goes from oldest playlist down to the previous month.)
Prog June 2016 places the spotlight on technical / progressive death metal.
My interest in this genre starts with my initial induction into progressive rock. My father exposed me to the musie of "Yes", in my highschool years, and that started my love of complex, progressive music. When I got into metal it wasn't long that I started looking into the more complex corners of the genre. This mix is a collection of some of the best new tracks and some more obscure artists in the genre.
So if your a fan of complex and aggressive music, you'll find something to enjoy.
Prog July 2016 places the spotlight on Mathrock bands including artists like This Town Needs Guns, Orchards & Minus The Bear.
I imagine a group of jazz students, in the 90's, who loved Rock but were tired of the 4/4 meter, creating Math Rock. In reality Math Rock influences goes as far back as the 70's with progressive rock band King Crimson and the punk rock band Nomeansno.
I created this mix, because I love Math Rock and I want to give people a window in some of the best in the genre.
Prog Aug 2016 places the spotlight on artist fusing Jazz with other genres be it Metal, Rock or Pop, including Pat Metheney and PanzerBallet.
My father brough me into Jazz through Fusion artists and that love of jazz fused with other genres has stuck. This is a mix of some of the best new and obscure tracks that exemplify that. Oh and @Jazzwhatever you might find some tracks to enjoy.
