Good People Better Rise Up!
Good People Better Rise Up! is a podcast from Alex Whalen, a 25+ year veteran of the dance music industry who has rocked dancefloors across the Americas and Europe. Over his career, Alex has, among other things: held down residencies with legendary clubs like DC’s Buzz, SF’s Spundae, and Boston’s Avalon; managed Deep Dish's Yoshitoshi Shop and Yoshitoshi.com; appeared on numerous syndicated dance music radio shows, including John Digweed's show in the UK and Thump Radio here in the US; toured extensively with his long-time studio mate Dave Ralph, and, well... you get the idea. Having taken a break from the scene in 2008 so that he could complete a PhD in political science (and how many DJs do you know that could say that?), Alex is back with a new energy, adding drum + bass to an arsenal that already included an impressive array of both current and future downtempo, progressive house, and techno classics. Look for new shows roughly every two weeks featuring whatever tracks happen to be grabbing his attention at the moment. For more info, check out alexwhalen.com. See you on the dancefloor!
