OEM Radio :: Original Electronic Music Radio

OEM Radio - Original Electronic Music Radio

I'm on my own this week to program Squares Cubed so I've been doing extra research trying to find content for the show. One of my normal haunts, Oddio Overplay, pointed me in the direction of OEM Radio.

OEM radio is a new project that presents original electronic music recordings via a Shoutcastâ„¢ internet radio station. OEM Radio is a free, zero-profit endeavor. The radio stream broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year - free. The stream broadcasts at 128kbit, so you will need DSL, Cable Modem, or a faster connection in order to tune in. We are working on starting a lower bandwidth stream in the near future.

The music content is wide ranging in terms of genre: you will hear ambient, IDM, downtempo, breakbeat, nu-jazz, experimental, and many other not-so-easily categorized sounds. OEM Radio plays listening music rather than dance music. OEM Radio seeks to bring original electronic music and recording artists that may be underexposed to a wider audience.

The queue currently holds 682 tracks totaling 70 hours of original material.
