The 11th Annual WKDU Electronic Music Marathon





The 11th Annual WKDU Electronic Music Marathon

After a 7-year hiatus, the 11th Annual WKDU Electronic Music Marathon has returned. Aimed to raise money for the eclectic, Drexel University student-run  radio station as well as Musicopia and The Village of Arts and Humanities, over 30 local DJs donated their time to take part in the event.
 
Over the past month, WKDU has methodically added these DJ sets via their soundcloud account (http://soundcloud.com/wkdu), which includes among others Dave P (Making Time), DJ Sega (Mad Decent), Noah Breakfast (former WKDU DJ/ex-Chiddy Bang), Les Professionnels (Nurvous Records), Telequanta (Data Garden) and many others.
 
The remaining sets for the 75-hour event, which is listened to worldwide, has just been released today, including a pair of sets by King Britt (a blistering 40 minute afro-future/techno mix & a 90 minute “connecting the dots” mix tracing the history of electronic music from to boogie to hip hop to footwork).
 
WKDU has garnered the support (via monetary donations) of local businesses such as Federal Donuts, Red Bull Philly, Mama's Vegetarian, R5 Productions, Brewerytown Beats, Creep Records, Philadelphia Record Exchange, and even “rival” WXPN.
 
As always, The Deli is here to support local artists and the mediums such as WKDU that help to shine a light in their direction. Check out some excellent sounds and show your support!
