Resonance FM 27/9/17

I kicked off this episode with a great track from the master of chopped vocals, Japanese producer in the blue shirt. After a interlude of sorts by his countryman Akiko Yano (taken from the film My Neighbors The Yamadas) I returned to in the blue shirt, playing his finest tune, 'Everything Affair'. That led straight into a track from Malian DJ Sandji, before I slowed it down a little with post-manele group Raze De Soare and a lovely song by Eritrean singer Yemane Barya. I closed the show with a song by young South London sibling trio Honey Hahs, who will be performing at the first Dig That Treasure! vs. Moshi Moshi Records night on October 12th. Tickets here!

Resonance FM 20/9/17

The second episode in this new run of Resonance shows opened with a pop track from ambience expert Virginia Astley, and closed with a cracking slice of Japanese synth-funk by Naoya Matsuoka called Watermelon Dandies. Along the way I dropped a tune by Negib Ould Ngainich (via Sahel Sounds), a corporate morale-booster from an 'Industrial Musical', and - in direct contrast - some acapella punk yelling by Furious Pig. I also played two tunes from the forthcoming Woo reissue, out on Emotional Rescue in October, as well an oldie for measure.

Damn Will, back at it again with the new episodes of Dig That Treasure! Today's show was the first episode on Resonance FM in over two years (the last was that earth-shattering finale in July 2015). In the meantime, I did five shows on Resonance EXTRA, but this here is the first live show since the aforementioned game-changer. I opened up with a tune by Alem Kebede, from an album I picked up at Kukulu Market in Chicago last Autumn. The episode travelled through The Holiday City Hot Cha Kitchen Band (a group of gals over 52 who love to sing and kazoo), new age composer Iasos, bonkers bubblegrime by Wharfwhit and the beautiful lounge of Piero Piccioni, before ending on a cut off Princess Nicotine by Tonte Theintan.
