Audio Texture Radio Show – April 14, 2014

A taste of Fink‘s new output started proceedings this week and is raising our hopes for his forthcoming album on new label home, R’Coup’D. We’re particularly liking the deep space vibes of “Tessera Lepta” from the new Ben Jacov EP on Doumen Records, who are slowly but surely going from strength to strength and the EP is another great addition to their discography. Now Kidkanevil is coming through with a new album on Project Mooncircle and it’s a beautiful listen, one for those mellow more thoughtful moments. That was followed by a slightly mental, mish mash of a remix of Los Charly’s Orchestra from Cy Gorman & Ennio Styles nicely followed by some great pysched out beats from Lunga e Mono before Andrzej Korzynski kept the funky pysche flavour with the title track form his “Man of Marble” soundtrack album, dug all the way out from obscure polish musical history by the Finders Keepers crew.

The new Mr. Thing, Strange Breaks LP is on the horizon and you know the selection is going to throw up a whole heap of music you never knew existed and so it is with Zulema‘s “Giving Up” the first taste of the forthcoming album from BBE. With the world cup almost upon us the musical tie ins from the country have already started so we thought we’d give’ you an Anglo take on the country’s rich musical heritage firstly from the Magic Drum Orchestra, closely followed by TM Juke and The Jack Baker Trio‘s firing “Omak Besar“. A trio of fresh house joints then closed the show, firstly from the every listenable Fantastic Mr Fox, hotly pursued my Matrixxman, who is currently riding his 15 minutes of fame, before a wonderful deep house remix of Zara McFarlane from Alex Patchwork closed the show in lovely vocal style.

Canela En Surco 037 – NTRNSTR aka Adriá Viñas Special Guest

Adriá Viñas @Canela En surco


Hace ya casi tres años desde que NTRNSTR aka Adriá Viñas pisó por primera vez Discos Paradiso para comprar algunos de sus primeros discos de House añejo cuando sólo tenía 16 años. Los habituales de la tienda (que somos muchos), llevamos esos mismos tres años comentando entre bambalinas la calidad de los discos que compra, busca y pincha este chaval.

Y no sólo eso, sino la pasión, transformada casi en enfermedad, que profesa hacia los primeros años de la música de baile y hacia los que la han creado; tirando para atrás siempre, buscando el origen como si se tratase de un cerebro maduro y trotado en muchas horas de surco.

Hace tiempo que queríamos traerlo aquí  a nuestro estudio casero porque queríamos ver y escuchar de primera mano, y bien de cerca, los discos que seleccionaría para el programa, así como sus ya sobradas habilidades para empujar y frenar plásticos; y la verdad, es que nos hemos quedado flipando mucho y el Shazam del vecino echando humo..

En la primera parte del programa (40 min) nuestro director Abu Sou estuvo seleccionando unos temas para que después éste diamante en bruto del House local, nos deleitase a todos con una sesión de casi hora y media de repaso a las diferentes corrientes de su parte más negra, sensual y melancólica en un set y un programa que estamos segurísimos que cuanto más tiempo pase, más orgullosos nos sentiremos de haberlo hecho.


1ª parte – Abu Sou

1.- Le Kéne Star de Sikasso – Hodi Hu Yenyan  (MALI  KUNKAN COLLECTION-Reissue on Kindred Spirits)

2.- Ogassa – Avale (Albarika Store-Reissue on Hot Casa)

3.- Wilson Le Gendre – Africa 1980 Inst.   (Charlie´s Records)

4.- Kimiko Kasai with Herbie Hanckok – Sunlight  (Sony Music JAPAN)

5.- Janice McClain – Giving My Love (Mon-Tab 1983)

6.- Maynard Fergusson – Primal Scream (Columbia 1976)

Audio Texture Radio Show – April 7, 2014

So Jesse Futerman‘s album is about to drop and is full of nice soulful beats and even a bit of house but the super soulful, jazzy “It’s Over” is the winner for us and kicked off this weeks show. Quasi Dub Development then started a little trio of reggae tunes in their own inimitable leftfield dub style and we’ll be showcasing this great album more in the coming weeks before it’s end of May release. GrandMagneto then displayed his ear for a good cover version with a killer version of the classic “Tainted Love” before Keida‘s high grade anthem “Ganja Tea” rounded off the  reggae selection in a red eyed, classic roots style.

It’s been a while since some good underground Indian flavoured beats came along so we were more than happy to display the beat construction talents of Carpet Patrol which led nicely into the post-punk, synth obsessed sounds of “Lava Land” from the great new Wrangler album before The Range changed the musical direction with some great liquid drum and bass. We were very happy to receive a taste of the new Taylor McFerrin album last week and trust us “The Antidote” bodes well for the album about to land.

SFV Acid then lowered the tempo whilst keeping the soul before Rory More keep the mellowness rolling with some great vocals and lush arrangements. We then harked back again to the Lufth album with the hypnotic sounds of “Ebbe und Flut” which was on repeat last week. Black Body then came through with the balearic joys of “Tomorrow Never Comes“, closely pursued bt DJ Center marking his return to the production world with the excellent “2AM Inna London Dub“. Daywalker & CF then ended the show with a truly epic slice of house, the fittingly entitled “Supersonic Transport”

CdV P080 Kassem Mosse special

Gunnar Wendel aka Kassem Mosse has always been an understated figure in electronic music. He has been quietly leading the line for years, being one of the pioneers who ushered in the recent wave of dirty sounding house long before it was fashionable. But his sound has always been distinct, combining a nonchalant and languid pace with exquisite arrangements and a lot of subtle percussive detail that recedes deep into the mix. This week on Cabeza de Vaca and Scanner FM we explore his new untitled album on Workshop and his back catalogue as well as some of his peers who also adopt uncommon house forms.


CdV P080: Especial de Kassem Mosse


Gunnar Wendel alias Kassem Mosse siempre ha sido una figura discreta en la música electrónica. Él ha estado llevando la línea en silencio por años, siendo uno de los pioneros que marcó el comienzo de la reciente ola de house con un sonido sucio antes de que estuviera de moda. Pero su sonido siempre ha sido distinta, combinando un ritmo indolente y lánguida con arreglos exquisitos y un montón de detalles de percusión sutil que se aleja de profundidad en la mezcla. Esta semana en Cabeza de Vaca y Scanner FM exploramos su nuevo disco sin título en el sello Workshop y su discografía y además algunos de sus compañeros que también adoptan formas poco comunes en house.

Audio Texture Radio Show – March 10, 2014

A trio of quirky yet soulful electronic tunes got the show off to a fine start this week, kicking off with the wobbly, largely instrumental strains of Mr. Mitch closely followed by the vaguely disturbing vibes of James Ferraro before the slow burner, “Vapore” from Palmistry paved the way for the twisted UK hip hop of Strange U‘s ode to Africa.

Canela En Surco 033 – Libido Crew Special Guests (Pau&Gon) b2b Abu Sou


Bons Records


Ya ha llegado a la tienda (Discos Paradiso) la referencia 001 de Bons Records, una de las noticias más prometedoras del mercado editorial en lo que va de año.

Con motivo de la presentación del mismo que este sábado 15 de Marzo tendrá lugar en la Sala Becool y en la que estarán como artistas invitados Philou Louzolo (responsable del 1er E.P. del sello) y el gran profeta del House, Marshall Jeferson, se nos ocurrió la idea de invitar al programa a los dos capos fundadores del sello, así como también de las míticas noches “Libido”; Pau Roca y Albert González, alias “Gon”.

Estos buenos amigos del Surco, hicieron un hueco en su apretadísima agenda para acercarse al programa y empujar y frenar discos de vinilo mano a mano con nuestro director, Abu Sou durante 120 minutos.

Un programa en el que además tuvieron tiempo de presentar en primicia para Canela En Surco varios de los cortes que formarán la 2ª referencia del que sin duda será uno de los sellos revelación de este año; BONS RECORDS.

Gracias Pau y Gon por traer todas estas joyas a nuestro estudio casero!! Larga Vida a Bons Records!!

House Music y Mucho Surco!!

Audio Texture Radio Show – February 17, 2014

A nice mish mash of styles this week which all seemed to segue together quite pleasingly kicking off with some sunshine jazz funk vibes from Brazil, courtesy of MUV before Aisha Mars supplied some deep, instrumental, soul music from the great Bamalovesoul compiled On Deck 2 from the BBE crew, a great little collection of fresh nu-soul flavours, mostly from artists I’ve never heard of, which makes it even better. Blludd Relations then dubbed up the Owiny Sigoma Band to good effect which led nicely into Jameszoo‘s unrecognisable remix of the great Awanto 3‘s Afro house banger, “Su What? which we previewed on last weeks show.

Xtrngr from the excellent Mad Hop Bandcamp compilation got the show rolling in atmospheric style before “Secret Garden” from Snow Ghosts, a curve ball, from the normally club orientated Houndstooth label, kept the dreamy vibe but added some lovely vocals and paved the way for more of the same from the very talented Otti Albietz, fresh on BBE Records.

CdV P071: Moodymann special

Few artists have left an instant impact that has lasted so long. But there are few artists like Detroit’s Kenneth Dixon JR, aka Moodymann. From his techno influenced debut in album 1997 on Carl Craig’s label Planet E to his most recent and self-titled jazz-house masterpiece on his own label KDJ label he has consistently delivered something new and innovative in a city that thrives on creativity, even as it files for bankruptcy. This week we unravel some of the themes running through the work of Moodymann and the complicated web of character and setting that set his most recent work apart from the imitators.


CdV P071: Especial de Moodymann

Pocos artistas han dejado un impacto inmediato que ha durado tanto tiempo. Pero son pocos los artistas como Kenneth Dixon JR de Detroit, alias Moodymann. Desde su debut álbum influenciado por el Detroit techno en 1997 en el sello Planet E de Carl Craig a su más reciente y homónimo obra maestra de jazz-house en su propia sello KDJ siempre ha ofrecido constantemente algo nuevo e innovador en una ciudad que destaca por la creatividad, así como que se declara en bancarrota. Esta semana vamos a desentrañar algunos de los temas que atraviesan la obra de Moodymann y la complicada red de carácter y escenario que estableció su más reciente trabajo, aparte de los imitadores.

Feliz Año, Chino

Colgamos al fin y coincidiendo con el Fin de Año Chino el programa que grabamos estas Navidades con el culpable de todos los culpables de que el Postpockotronic exista: Nuestro Chrisitan Len, que ahora vive en Ibiza, es un tío “mu pofesional” y decidió invertir lo que se ahorra en billetes de avión viniendo a la Condal para pagarse un Postpo. Porque sí amigos, no perdonamos a nadie, este año pasarse por el Postpo cuesta 50€ en Pekín y en Pokón, porque aseguramos famoseo, subida de ego nivel elfo negro espadachín; y sobre todo porque tenemos un plan… aaaaaaah!!!

Audio Texture Radio Show – January 27, 2014
