What Youth: How would you define Reverberation Radio?
Robbie Combs: At it’s core, Reverberation is a circle of friends with a deep passion for music. It started over a decade ago as a music club where recent discoveries were shared and later morphed into a radio show/music supervision/international DJ collective. It’s first public incarnation was on KXLU 88.9 FM in Los Angeles. Reverberation had a good run on FM airwaves, in fact some of the first Allah-Las demos (and many other LA bands) debuted on the show, but eventually got kicked off the air for not following the station rules. The show laid fallow for over a year — it was a sad time for Reverb and its listeners. Good news is we figured out how to bring it back to life on The Internets. Now Reverberation is a weekly online radio boasting 150k unique listeners worldwide. To date, nearly 4 million mixes have been downloaded since June 2013.
Apparently Reverberation is listened to on sets of Playboy shoots. People have told us they’ve heard our mixes at top department stores and restaurants in NYC, barber shops in Chicago, surf shops in L.A., countless record shops and label offices around the world.
What’s happening next?
More digging. More mixes. We are interested in doing music supervision for film. We enjoyed working with Tin Ojeda promoting his Expencive Porno Movie. There’s talk of starting a reissue record label. We also have a lot more live sessions coming up including the Cosmic Creek Surf Comp this weekend, sets in Manchester and Leeds in early June, the Kona Surf Film Festival in Palm Springs June 19, Otalith Festival in British Columbia in August to name a few. More on the way!
