Every week Signal Committee present an Eclectic Picks playlist. All tracks are selected from the full inbox of 200 tracks that are submitted each week to Fresh On The Net. This week all the credit goes to our special guest curator, Studio Kind of Green.
WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR?
Our playlists are orientated to the alternative music fan. Lyrics are not essential, abstract ideas are embraced and the fusing of different genres is encouraged. If you used to write band names on your pencil case at school, you’ll probably like our playlists.
INTRODUCING STUDIO KIND OF GREEN
Studio Kind Of Green is no stranger to the Eclectic Picks. Whenever he submits, you never quite you know what you’re gonna get. It could be funky, jazzy hip-hoppy or all of those things blended together with a bit of soul thrown in. What you can be sure of, however, is that it will get grab your interest. Check out Studio Kind Of Green’s latest track, Rising Tide, and then check out his picks for this week’s…… Eclectic Picks.

A FEW WORDS FROM A STUDIO KIND OF GREEN
An honour it was to be invited into Freshonthenet’s wheelhouse of eclecticism, as guest moderator for the Signal Committee.
Batch 479 consisted of 197 tunes of which to peruse throughout a head-phoned, dog walkie filled weekend. A thoroughly enjoyable challenge it was, with some really great songs; not an easy task to whittle it down to a digestible playlist.
I have tried to concentrate on song craft in my consideration, including musicianship, artistry and production values. A subjective choice, (as always) these are the 15 tunes that caught my ear most whilst providing a stylistically, eclectic musical journey
I really hope the listeners enjoy. To all artists who submitted an entry, thanks for your gift of music! Keep crafting the beautiful sounds.
