0. What is Canopy Radio?

An innovative podcast promising musical enlightenment via our own distinct style, glitch-hop. Loads of original material, updated frequently, archived forever. Free yourself from restrictive copyrights and aid in our musical evolution.

1. Who are you people?!

Canopy Radio was formed by likeminded electronic music producers around the northern Virginia area. We get help from lots of friends, but our core group consists of Kept Blue, Emancipator, DJ CJ & Ceratops. Special thanks to Intrinsic & Ishkabum.

2. What’s so special about mixing other people’s music?

We take audio submissions from every type of artist and transform it into our musical vision. The emerging style is a social construct that is naturally diverse, efficiently produced, wholly creative, and greatly relevant to our time and culture.

We try to examine and demonstrate the links between global and local musics, expressive and popular musics, and all other paradoxical concepts that have emerged in our digital culture. In so doing we boost all performed musics to a world-class level which is advantageous for self-marketing musicians and historical archival.

3. How do you classify this music?

The term glitch-hop is not our invention, but we have effectively mastered the genre. Our particular style is a synthesis of dubstep, jungle and breakcore. Other influences are commonly heard like jazz, samba, punk and hip-hop.

4. Will you play my music live on Canopy Radio?

We will at least play a portion of it. Send a .mp3 to keptblue@gmail.com, or visit this section of the site. Anything remotely interesting is sure to be played, at least for novelty!

5. What else do I need to know?

You should probably be aware that one God binds us all to the eternal rhythym of birth and death. Your interpretation of that force (whatever it may be) is highly valuable because it is the source of your love and passion.

We desire to fuse your love and passion with our own to form some sort of giant unstoppable love/passion machine.

We will use this machine to steal money from corporations.


  1. Looks like a cool project. I like the fact that you understand adding emotion to ‘machine’ based material. Hope you continue seeing growth and do well. I’ll check back to see what happens. Keep true to yourself.

  2. i’m ready to do canopy right.

    i’d forgotten the orig. idea

    & how we’d both had the same idea: you from production and me from my tables.

    I’m sorry if i seemed elitist

    i still ❤ J.T.net
