Herbert: Bodily Sounds
With the use of a digital recorder and mic, this classically trained musician recorded sounds such as a mouse trying to get out of a wastebasket, the contents of a handbag, the noises of laser eye surgery, and used body sounds donated from listeners on his mailing list.
A level headed Q&A with Max Graham
Max Graham has come a long way since his early interest as a scratch DJ in '86. After travelling to Spain, London, Los Angeles, and New York, Graham settled in Ottawa and was one of the first Canadian DJs to discover the progressive sound coming out of the U.K. It is safe to say that without Graham, the progressive scene in Canada would not be as huge as it is today. Graham recently spoke about the state of the scene with Justin Hardison.
A level headed Q&A with Alpha
After releasing a memorable and emotional debut album, creating a follow-up can prove difficult for any artist. Music critics watch your every move and you may already hear your audience standing around the record shops crying, "it certainly isn't as good as your first record." In too many cases bands jump ahead of themselves and unleash all their ideas at once, creating over the top concept albums and rock operas that leave you wondering what went wrong. Andy Jenks recently told Justin Hardison how Alpha surivived second album syndrome.

A level headed Q&A with Shantel
Justin Hardison recently sat down with one of Germany's Down-tempo pioneers over dinner while he was in New York promoting his sophisticated new offering "Great Delay." He had a lot of interesting things to say about working on his new album, the winter music conference, shepherds with cell phones and offered some insight into his work that combines a huge array of interesting instruments, subtle electronics and the passionate vocal work of his guests.

A level headed Q&A with Dave Tarrida
Since the start of his career in 1991, Dave Tarrida has been involved in a number of projects. His legendary club Scotland club, Sativa, gave artists such as Cristian Vogel, Claude Young, and DJ Hell their first British debuts and his Sativae label was responsible for incredible Techno material from Tobias Schmidt, Cristian Vogel, Subhead and others.

A level headed Q&A with Tim "Love" Lee
In the midst of running two record labels (Tummy Touch and Peace Feast), extensive globe-trotting, sculpting his beard, various promotional duties, and his Kiss 100 radio slot, Tim “Love” Lee has managed to create his latest album, “Just Call Me ‘Lone’ Lee.” Justin Hardison recently spoke with Lee while he was in the shower, hung over, and attempting to get a taxi to the airport.
