Presentamos Bassment Culture, nuestro programa dedicado a las tendencias emergentes de la música electrónica de baile y Bass Music

En un mundo post-2000, el «mestizaje electrónico» acerca cada día más al barrio con lo que es tendencia. A kanis y a hipsters. Al Moombah y la cultura de club. Por un lado, raíces afros y ritmos del caribe, la esencia. Por otro, habilidades tecnológicas y experimentos digitales. Macbooks y favelas, sintetizadores y freestyles de ghettos futuristas.

Presentamos BASSMENT CULTURE: beats de suburbios coloniales mezclados para el mainstream. Nuevas referencias. La escena electrónica post-global. Fluor. Música de baile del tercer milenio…

Soul, dub madness, hip hop and Brazil

Soul, dub madness, hip hop and Brazil dominate this weeks show kicking off with a track from the excellent debut album from Gabriel Garzon-Montana which has been on repeat all week and is highly recommended. Hollie Cook then took the soul and gave it a Prince Fatty riddim, look out for her new album coming on Mr. Bongo later this year. We couldn’t resist playing the kookly little dub from the new Kalbata & Mixmonster single which led into the crazy dub techno vibes of Martijn Comes, closely followed by the analogue dub vibes of «Robert Rental» a taster from Ekoplekz‘s excellent album coming in March on Planet Mu.

Audio Texture Radio Show – February 10, 2014

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.

Una Filosofía Del Tocador: Anatemas FistBar! nº 38

Una Filosofía del Tocador

Abril del año 1992. En FistBar! a Oscar Abril Ascaso se le escapó de las manos un martillo que fue a parar a la rodilla de Sedcontra; finalmente, tras una serie de cortes de corriente, éste abandonó cojeando la sala tras un portazo.

CdV P058: Dub techno special

Due to technical issues a voiceless program this week, with an unmixed run of dub techno and dub-inspired tracks replacing our promised special on Laurel Halo which will be next week. There is plenty on offer though, from some powerful driving club tracks from Bleak, Reeko and Savas Pascalidis, to more atmospheric numbers by Andrea Cichecki, Grad_U and Deepchord, some more experimental dub-flavoured electronica from Genotype and Downliners Sekt and even a vocal track by the under rated German producer Fenin.

Audio Texture Radio Show – October 21, 2013

A nice soulful selection in a roundabout sort of way this week, a week when Boards of Canada have been releasing their back catalogue for all those slow on the draw the first time around. The new Om Unit album on Civil Music is a pleasant surprise with it’s pleasing musicality and some nice vocal touches, ably demonstrated by «The Road» featuring Charlie Dark. Some future hip hop then followed from Thriftworks and a track we plucked from the excellent new Project Mooncircle compilation showcasing artists new and old before The Poets of Rhythm reminded the show of their soul credentials.

20Mil Leguas presenta – EL FLACH

Estaba Nemo en la fabulosa biblioteca del Nautilus, sumergido en sus estudios, recopilando información sobre los sucesos que terminaron con la vida y brillante carrera de  su admirado ingeniero Karl Flach. Y así leyó el capitán:

SubMachinGun#7 My Jamaican Affair. A collection of Dub & Reggae Masterpieces Vol I.

Un breve pero significativo paso por el Caribe y sus ritmos jamaicanos. Conducido y manipulado por Cesar de Melero.

CdV P041: Boris Bunnik special

Much like Rene Pawlowitz aka Shed, Dutch musician and visual artist Boris Bunnik has used a lot of different monikers to branch out and explore his musical ideas. Most recognisable for his take on dub and techno as Conforce, he has recently been more active under a host of other names, principally the electro-leaning Versalife, who released their debut album “Vantage Point” recently, and Vernon Felicity, his take on modern house. But there are also many other sides and names to Bunnik’s music and this week on Cabeza de Vaca we try to unravel the links between them all as well the art and design he warps them in.

Audio Texture Radio Show – June 24, 2013

So back from the holiday and back into musical action once more kicking off this week with some of that new/old soul business belted out by the powerful voice of Marta Ren. Debruit then laid down the summer hip hop vibes recorded with Shamon Cassette whilst he was in New York, which led nicely into the ever impressive Homeboy Sandman riding a twisted, yet compulsive break. We were then happy to finally share a track from the forthcoming TG Mauss album which we’ve been sitting on and enjoying for the last few weeks, check it when it drops on the ever interesting Karaoke Kalk in July.
