It’s the start of a new school year, and with it comes new programming at KWCW. One of the most intriguing new acts is “Gentle Headbangerz” hosted by seniors Ziggy Lanman and Devika Doowa. “Gentle Headbangerz” promises to celebrate electronic music in all its diverse forms, from EDM to Trap and House to Hip Hop, serving up popular remixes as well as original songs. The show airs Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m.

“Gentle Headbangerz” seeks to bring the often overlooked electronic dance genre to a whole new group of music lovers.

“Electronic music as a music of choice is less prevalent in the Whitman student body,” said Doowa. “Electronic dance music is simultaneously the worst and best music of all time and everyone needs it in their lives.”

The hosts hope to break the stereotype that EDM is all beat and no substance, and reveal electronic music for the complex, genre-bending and ultimately fun style it is.

If the thought of heart-pumping, heading-banging music with a touch of humor appeals to you, make sure to tune in next Tuesday.
