From 10th June, New York’s BreakThru Radio will feature Hidden Shoal as their latest showcase label. DJ Mojo, who recently described Hidden Shoal as “This generation’s 4AD”, will curate and present a special HSR showcase, which promises to be an awesome listen. In advance of this eagerly awaited radio event, here’s a little more info about Breakthru Radio and DJ Mojo from the station…
“BTR is the Internet’s voice of the world’s best independent music, where DJs take music personally… ‘Music for music lovers’ is BTR’s motto, and one that their DJs take very seriously. In a world where independent music is becoming more and more accessible, the need for select sources to filter the best is a necessity… BTR offers listeners access to unknown artists throughout the world, with a daily audience that includes more than a dozen countries. The site has garnered over 80 million listeners in its first year with its unique on-demand musical programming and focus on the best new independent music worldwide.”
“A force in the independent music scene for over four decades, BTR is thrilled to have his exquisite taste and expertise… DJ Mojo has spent the majority of his life in Brooklyn, NY heavily inundated in the local music scene. He has worked the doors of many of the city’s hottest venues, and written for such publications as Spin and Slash, and played in the UK electro-noise band Whitehouse, as well as being in the original lineup of Swans… Maximum Music airs every Tuesday on BTR featuring a wide array of music as eclectic and impressive as DJ Mojo himself… Mojo has found friendships with some of the musical greats such as Bowie and Iggy Pop, and the Beastie Boys even wrote a song about him.”
A prestigious showcase indeed! Don’t forget to check it out by streaming the show on BTR on Tuesday June 10th.
