Dance music is better with a luminary like The Black Madonna on the decks. For this limited series exclusive to KCRW, The Black Madonna digs deep into her extensive personal collection for a once-in-a-lifetime trek through the ABC’s of dance music—as only she can present it.

All Episodes

In the final episode, discover the the soul of dance music as we dip through disco rarities and take a tour of “the house that Jack built,” from then until now and beyond.

From the deepest dub to hip-hop, Miami bass, jungle, and beyond; this trip’s destination is an ultra-rare exploration of the bass-station, brought to you by The Black Madonna.

Pack your pocket calculators for a trip through early electro, EBM, industrial and techno, chronicling the evolution of synthesizer music.
