Setlist, 30 April 2011

This week’s show had a lot of new music – I think there were only a few tracks I’ve played before out of a 3-hour show. The standout tracks came from completely different worlds and parts of the world. One track that absolutely _killed_ me was from Cleveland Jones, “Sensitive:” Another excellent track is TraceyContinue reading “Setlist, 30 April 2011”

Setlist, 16 April 2011

This week’s show was really diverse even by my own standards, with music from West Africa taking a large part of the spotlight (I was in Senegal for two weeks at the end of March/beginning of April). I can’t recommend highly enough the Sofrito: Tropical Discotheque compilation, which I also played a lot of thisContinue reading “Setlist, 16 April 2011”

Setlist, 19 March 2011

This week’s show had a lot of very new music, owing to the South by Southwest Festival underway in Austin, Texas, plus the upcoming Sperm Festival here in Prague. One of the bands to watch for 2011 is Brandt Brauer Frick, who will be playing at the Sperm Festival. Here’s their newest clip, Caffeine: BecauseContinue reading “Setlist, 19 March 2011”

Setlist, 5 March 2011 – Carnival and Coffee

This week’s show had two main themes, the start of Carnival in Rio and songs about coffee (and one about tea). There were some new tracks in there, including the brand-new Aeroplane remix of the Human League’s “Never Let Me Go:” and this new Brazilian singer, Tulipa Ruiz, and her song, “Do Amor:” but thereContinue reading “Setlist, 5 March 2011 – Carnival and Coffee”

Setlist, 5 February 2011

This week’s show was, even by my own standards, really international. I just returned from participating in Berlin’s Transmediale Festival, and one of the concerts I got to check out was with Vienna’s Dorian Concept. The acoustics in Berlin’s Festhalle Kreuzberg, an old dance hall made of wood, really resonated with the heavy bass thatContinue reading “Setlist, 5 February 2011”

New Mixes! Gloss and Matte

As we come up to the holiday break, I figured I’d bust out an early present: A new double “mixtape” of sorts, with both video and audio. One side, “Gloss” tends toward BPM, whereas the other side, “Matte” tends toward MPB ๐Ÿ™‚ The mixes were made for the very cool site “Proti ลกedi,” which featuresContinue reading “New Mixes! Gloss and Matte”

Setlist, 27 November 2010

This week’s show was mainly put together on two long flights between Prague and San Francisco – having 10 hours each way to do nothing to put together my setlist is a rare opportunity ๐Ÿ™‚ The standout tracks this week were Solly’s ‘Shawty Swing’ via the Sick Girls’ excellent mix CD, “Revolution No. 5,” andContinue reading “Setlist, 27 November 2010”

Setlist, 30 October 2010

I’ve just returned from eight days in Berlin, so this week’s show had a pretty strong Berlin vibe to it. It was great being in Berlin and hanging out with other radio people (my organization sponsored a festival devoted to the future of radio called Test Signals). It was also very cool because a localContinue reading “Setlist, 30 October 2010”
