‘Eclectica’ is the new genre of dance music that Don Play is inventing right before your very eyes. Raised in the age of ‘Electronica,’ which had its own cultural merits, Don’s ‘Eclectica’ takes a more freewheeling approach to genres and historical precedents. Take a historic ‘Deetour’ through disco, boogie, garage, Italo, French touch, Chicago jackin’, Detroit techno, and deep house. Editorial note: for some reason the digital recorder in studio stopped recording for about 2 minutes. Luckily I noticed it pretty quickly and got it fired up again — so there’s a quick edit in the podcast version during FPI Project that did not appear on the live broadcast. Enjoy!
