About Us

FTH Podcast is for electronic musicians. We talk to producers, performers, promoters, inventors and creators about process, inspiration, motivation and stories of their journeys. This show is not about gear or production tips, but here to inspire and create a motivational tool for musicians. It will also provide a platform for producers to promote their current work and upcoming shows.

As a bright spot and big supporter for the electronic/dance community, Jen takes the time to shine a light on the works of other area artists as well.
