Favoriting On The Grid with Dante Scaglione: Playlist from April 18, 2023 Favoriting

On The Grid, with deejay Dante Scaglione, excavates the earworms and oddities of international dance music and adjacent ambiance: synthesizer-laden, sometimes lounge-y, sometimes rave-y, and almost always sitting atop a programmed, percussive grid. From pop rap to acid house, trip-hop to new wave, synth-pop to street soul, with a special emphasis on anything Euro and Italo, a vast array of styles are unified in the ultimate pursuit of catching a vibe.
