Essential Madness Radio
Edgy music by eccentric minds
Where the urge for expression supersedes the will to please


Browse cover artworks   /

Be prepared, the music on Essential Madness Radio is abrasive, absurd, adventurous, bizarre, crazy, dark, deviant, erroneous, experimental, freaky, funny, humorous, independent, inventive, original, otherworldly, playful, quirky, strange, weird, wild, and zany.

The tracks at EMR are played in random order, so some juxtapositions will surely be banal, but occasionally stories come through.

Essential Madness Radio is brought to you by DJ jri. Every 4th Wednesday MissVergn├╝gen (host) and I give the Strange Songs for Strange People / Die Musiktherapeuten parties at Berlin's Eschschloraque night club.

To listen to Essential Madness Radio you can also use your own player (e.g. iTunes). Choose its Open Stream command and paste this URL:

You can contact me. I'd love to hear about your EMR experience. Also I'll appreciate your music recommendations.

Art is not imitation, nor is it something manufactured according to
the wishes of instinct or good taste. It is a process of expression.

-- Merleau-Ponty
