TB playlist 27.02.12

Summary: Oddisee, 3:33, Air Haze, 3LLL, Aleph, Pixelord, Flaco, Venetian Snares, Falty DL and Caracal. Plus Chiara & Christian from Racket guest mix.

Short on time these days, so will keep the post brief. Chiara and Christian were on the program representing Racket, the monthly experimental showcase. Each played a 30min set giving insight into some of the sounds you can expect at the large 20th instalment of the series - R20. This is to be the last before a short break and the search for a new home, given the decision of Miss Libertine to concentrate on food. Hear the mix and interview again via the link at the bottom of the page and we’ll also be adding the mixes to our mixcloud shortly.

BLW & Ouch v The Rest

TB playlist 02.01.12

Summary: First for 2012. Davido, DJ Sight, Consequence, DJ Olive & Demdike Stare. Compilations Finest Ego, Mad Hop Vol. 4 & Intergalactic Travels. Guest program and mix from BLW & Ouch.

Dang! Where to start on this one? There was no major feature but rather a number. So guess that means we best write bout them all. We would have usually spread out these musical treats over a series of shows, but this evening was our last episode before a summer break. Anyways features as follows…

First up the latest Finest Ego delivery, the Finest Ego - German / Austrian / Swiss compilation. We have played all of the installments in the collection and have grown to expect great things from this platform. This one does not disappoint and further builds on this must check series - essential listening. As such we played 7 tracks of the generous 33 on offer. See also the free downloads section for more - yes amazingly it’s a free download.

Sharing lots of their historical and cultural heritage, this copious collection contains work from producers of a wide range of musical manifestations – all located in the spectrum between traditional sample-based and organic sound to electronic and experimental compositions.
