We've had a very mild summer so far, with lots of rain last month, but now that July is here the heat is back with a vengeance. I can’t think of a more perfect excuse to kickback, chill out and listen to some great downtempo electronica and smooth electro-jazz, which is exactly what we’ll be doing on this Saturday night’s edition of The After Hours.

I’ll be featuring Kruder & Dorfmeister (top left), a down-tempo duo between Peter Kruder and Richard Dorfmiester from Austria. We’ll be listening to some select tracks from across their discography. We’ll also hear Dorfmeister collaborating with Rupert Huber as Tosca. I’ll be playing some tracks from their album No Hassle. We’ll hear from 9Lazy9, an acid jazz group from Italy, off of their album Beds of a Land, and from Four80East, an electro-jazz ensemble from Toronto, off their album En Route. On top of that we’ve got Soulstance, Modulo 5 and Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra. Stream it live July 13, 10pm-12am, right here on KRUU radio.

The After Hours 7/13

This IS good music for a summer's evening. I turned crew on and heard one of my all time faves- Depeche Mode. A great start. Makes me want to groove around the cultural district in my car- with the top down- if it went down :). Think I will... Thanks-
