Elysium update

by on Jan.08, 2011, under News

The radio station that Elysium has been airing on since 2008 is closing shop, and this means an end to my regular releases of it. I could potentially do two more shows, but I have been needing a break for quite some time and so I will use this opportunity to explore some extended play mixes. I will be looking for a new home for Elysium, but it will be only a once a month show when and if it returns. I have been considering for a long time to discontinue Elysium for a variety of reasons. The main one being that it became more of a chore to do the show than I was having fun. The return to my EP mixes will mark a return of higher quality listening experiences, and better forethought to how I want you, the listener, to feel. I used to think Elysium should be a showcase of the best new songs out there, and while I think I did a very good job of that, the mixes became less about the listening experience and more about how can I arrange these new tracks in the least annoying manner. If Elysium the radio show doesn’t return I think will move it into a quarterly mix for each season of the year (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter). Anyways, I will keep everyone posted.

      Well, no worries mate. Vocal Elysium continues, but I am actively searching for a new home for my regular Elysium show. If nothing comes, I will continue to release Elysium on a seasonal release, or whenever I feel like it, haven’t decided quite yet.

      I have two shows, Vocal Elysium, and Elysium. I probably should have named them not so similarly, but oh well.
