The Chilldown Period - Episode Two line-up

Since Episode Two is finally up and running, I need to give y'all the breakdown and a place to get your hands on copies of the music.

Also, I need to make a few corrections to my commentary on the podcast.

1) Monk Fly is a dealer of abstract/future beats (see his "About" section). His Downtempo Smokers 12" runs the gamut of Hip Hop, Dub and Dubstep. Since Dubstep can trace its origins to Drum-n-Bass (just one of the ancestors), and there is a subgenre of DNB called Atmospheric Drum-n-Bass (or Intelligent DNB: "Intelligent drum and bass (IDB) is the widespread term for the subgenre of drum and bass emphasising influences from lounge jazz and ambient music. The music typically has a very atmospheric or ambient quality, with washes of synthesised pads, and deep sub-bass."), I made a connection and went with it. This is more of a show note than that of a correction.

2) In describing "A Secret Search" by :papercutz, I used the term "three-part line." I meant "three-part chorus" and fumbled the phrasing. According to www.webref.org, a "three-part line" is "[a] single strand of rope or cable doubled back around two sheaves so that three parts of it pull a load together." I guess I could say that the three voices, in the spirit of it all, do help "pull the [song] together." Yes, I know, it's a stretch. With my mood right now, I'm going with it!

3) I called the Alpha Rhythm's song "Two Handed Thing" "Two Handed Thingy." On a side note, I stand by what I said of them bringing a jam band sound to downtempo/trip-hop! (That's a compliment. See: phish, Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Grateful Dead, most music that comes out of UNC-Chapel Hill)

Lemme see, I can't think of anything else right now... so let's move forward!
