Canela En Surco 010 – IVDB b2b Abu Sou

En un mundo dónde todo se intenta homogeneizar, legislar y robotizar, existen pequeños refugios dónde el peligroso aburrimiento de la cordura y el oscuro y resignado raciocinio no han podido llegar. De hecho nunca lo harán..

Estos refugios a veces toman la forma física de personas; personas que en mi opinión son la única esperanza que nos queda al resto para reconstruir este hogar deshecho que es la Tierra.

Me refiero a que, cuando todos tengamos instalados mil chips y nano-robots en nuestra dañada masa cerebral, la naturaleza libre de esas mentes será el principal instrumento de lucha que le quedará al pueblo.

Hace muy poco estuvo en Canela En Surco una de esas personas, IVDB.

No hay más palabras, el resto son canciones.

Audio Texture Radio Show – April 8, 2013

Quite a soulful vibe this week, kicking off with one of two tracks in the show from Omarand his wonderful remake of his 1990 classic «There’s Nothing Like This» taken from his new EP The Man which is boding very well indeed for the album. A sensitive Taylor McFerrin remix of «Come To My Door» from Jose James then followed before a hatrick of modern soul classics was completed by Sweatson Klank‘s «Morning After Pills» from his, now available, album on Project Mooncircle. Jazz was then the order of the day with the opening track from Kevin Beadle‘s stellar compilation, Private Collection, out on BBE Records.

Audio Texture Radio Show – February 11, 2013

Really happy this week to start the show with some brand new Bilal and to announce he has signed to the good old boys at BBE Records for his new album due out in March and if the first single is anything to go by then we are all in for a big treat. Next up was some jazz from a fantastic new compilation on Heavenly Sweetness who have managed to unearth some incredible, forgotten, jazz gems from various dusty French vaults. BJ Smith then provided a stellar version of the Mos Def classic, «Umi Says» which led nicely into a modern day French future underground classic with the debut single fromThe Mardo Bump Society and for sure it’s got the Bump.

Audio Texture Radio Show – February 4, 2013

So Heidi Vogel starts off the show in super deep Brazilian jazz style with a little taste of her forthcoming album coming on Far Out. Mo Kolours then laid down the  down and dirty vibes with the sleazy, tropical delights of «Bomptious» which led nicely into the beats and big band jazz fusion of Mark De Clive-Lowe and a whole heap of Dutch jazz musicians. Then came a taste of blog, Moovmnt‘s, debut release as they take the leap from the written word to the musical note in fine style with an album of deep soul, jazz vibes courtesy of Vincent Helbers aka Flowriders and now aka Seravince.

Audio Texture Radio Show – January 14, 2013

So after a bit of a hiatus in the radio show at the end of the year we are glad to be back and spreading the musical word again. Azymuth got the show off to a fine fusion start with a track from the reissue of their classic album Light As A Feather which amazingly sold 500,000 copies in 1979 and spent 8 weeks in the UK top 20. The reissue will probably sell about 500 and the thought of its jazz fusion joys entering the UK mainstream charts are laughable, how times change. Greg Foat then carried on the jazz fusion vibe with a track from their great new album dropping round about now on Jazzman records. The first great discovery of 2013 has arrived in the shape of Lycoriscoris a young Japanese producer with a great debut album of deep electronica with some soothing jazz flavours and a great listen start to finish.
