On a recent radio show, DJ and Global FM host Helfetica showed that the unifying power of electronic music spans multiple generations of listeners.
Example: Helfetica brought her 100-year-old grandmother to the show to discuss her impressions of electronic music and her favorite records.
While there is often the impression that the elderly are set in their own way, Helfetica describes her grandmother – affectionately referred to as ‘OB’ – as ‘extremely open-minded’. OB has a dual passion for jazz and electronic music, and the two worlds often come together on her favorite records, such as the ethereal Floating Points and Pharaoh Sanders collaboration, “Movement 1”.
The two discussed their connection to a wide variety of electronic genres, ranging from the Italo disco sounds of Demi Riquisimo to the jungle influences of Olof Dreijer. “If OB hadn’t been born in 1921, she would definitely be a raver,” Helfetica stated.
Helfetica says OB has more recently been introduced to her favorite electronic duo of the moment, Bicep, and the duo’s tunes, especially “You,” always continue to inspire a groove.
Overall, OB’s knowledge of deep electronic cuts is great enough to put many experienced ravers to shame. Discover her wisdom and listen to her favorite tunes on Helfetica’s full Global FM radio show below.
