Music tames the savage beast and it also helps people calm down and get things done. Over the last year or so I've found myself carefully curating the music podcasts that I listen to, keeping just the artists who consistently put out work that sounds great and doesn't rely on endless repetition. This has meant that a lot of the more popular DJs of the world have been dropped from my subscriptions and a lot of the people who are "new to me" have risen to the top. Nora En Pure's Purified is one of the better podcasts that I've had the pleasure of listening to.

Nora En Pure at Work

When I first stumbled across Nora's podcast, I liked the way she mixed her tracks. There's never a hard break, even when the beat and intensity are wildly different between segments, and the way she samples the classics is incredibly intelligent. At first glance, someone might confuse her compositions with the ones put out by Sister Bliss, another amazing artist, but Nora's mixes tend to be designed more about movement whereas Sister Bliss is designed around raw emotion. This might have something to do with her South African background, which is quite different from the UK's sound, but I could be wrong about this.

I could go on, but this post is already sounding like a paid spot1. If you enjoy electronic music to any degree, give her podcast a listen.

  1. This is not a sponsored post or anything like that. I just really like her music and think that others will enjoy it as well.
