Originally launched by Vigo and Brett from Boundless in 2004, Elevations is NYC's only weekly live radio show focused on futuristic soul music, covering everything from broken beat, nu jazz, neo soul and beyond. Currently run by Vigo and Probe DMS, Elevations navigates the listener through the cosmic rhythms of future beats, discovering home grown soulful tracks from coast to coast, and importing cuts from West London and beyond, with the goal of exposing audiences everywhere to the "broken beat" sound both via NYC airwaves and on-line streams.
