UTOPIA DANCE RADIO
Utopia Dance Radio - a new broadcast will be aired every Friday at 8pm.
If you couldn't listen on the night, don’t worry as every new show will be repeated every night over the following week at 8pm until the new show is aired the Friday after. More details of future shows and content will be detailed on our Utopia and Twisted page here: https://www.facebook.com/utopia.twisted/
You can listen to the show online (no need to create any logins and it’s free of charge) on your laptop, tablet or desktop HERE
Just click on the logo and music should start playing after a second or two - it should also connect to a main page with more information but occasionally this shows a page error - however, that shouldn't affect you hearing the music!
And you can also download an app from most major app stores to listen on your mobile – just search for Live365 Radio in the store. The app hasn’t got great reviews as it doesn’t have much in the way of features, but it’s perfectly fine for listening to the show - and especially if your home internet connection won't connect because of the strain on all internet connections at this time, or if you are trying to listen to the show from any country outside of the UK, USA or Canada.
Most of the tracks will now be added to our existing Utopia Dance playlist on Spotify (shown below). All new from the Radio broadcasts are added every week the day after each show has been aired (they show at the bottom of the list). You'll often find however, that some tracks will be missing from the playlist as Spotify often does not have all the tracks in their library.
The music played at UTOPIA events is one of the primary reasons why dancers come back month after month. Over the last 13 years UTOPIA has gained an enviable reputation for breaking some of the best new music around. We do this by working on a regular basis with a host of DJs that are recognized on the dance scene as being the leaders in their field. Each music set is therefore carefully crafted to mix hot new tracks seamlessly with Utopia favourites as well as other familiar tracks of the moment.
Our aim is to tailor the evenings to fit as closely as possible to the profile of the people attending whilst still challenging them and always trying to offer something new and exciting. The emphasis is on tracks that have a definite groove, irrespective of musical genre. The criteria is to pick music that has musical structures that are interesting to dance to as well as having hooks and melodies that make you want to get up and dance. This is a common feature across all Utopia events; our aim is to simply choose the very best representation of a musical style that we can find and to also find music that helps dancers to incorporate the ideal of musicality in their dancing. Of course music is subjective and one person’s preference may not be another’s, and we do understand this, which is why our music is as varied as it can be given the fact that it is also the DJ’s job to play to the floor.
