Fidget Style

Crookers vs. Kid Cudi - Day 'n' Night

A little something different as we take a look at a sound coming out of Italy and the UK today. A special thanks to Biancardi Domenico for reaching out to Italobot. He's the director of the program Fidget Style, an 'onair syndication on Italian's radio' specializing in Fidget house, glitchy house with a very electronic feel. Born from the internet and often derided, Fidget House is breaking free of the confines of the internet and finding its way into clubs in the UK and the Med. The sound is being made popular right now by Jesse Rose, Switch, and Crookers.

The UK Guardian has a 'sniffy' review of this style of music but it sheds light on how another internet culture is manifested in the real world.

Biancardi's radio show is available for streaming and download and he has set up a weekly chart for the best 'Fidget House' tracks with links to the songs on last.fm.
