Slow Dance Radio 27/2/19

I had the pleasure of doing a set on Slow Dance's weekly radio broadcast. I ran through some DTT classics including Super Eccentric Theatre, Samsimar, Warfield Spillers and Washington Phillips. I also played tunes by a couple of London acts (Platonica Erotica, Bo En, Svetlana - the latter of whom joined me in the studio). It was a really fun set and sounds good, I think, bar a couple of problems with Mixlr. Check it out below!

A classic solo show this week. I played tunes by the legendary Trixie's Big Red Motorbike, cult pervert Tonetta, and Congolese group Wenge Musica Maison Mère. A good solid episode!

Resonance FM 19/2/19 (Pet Grotesque)

On the latest show I was joined by guest co-host Calum AKA Pet Grotesque. Calum's music has been played on the show twice previously, the first time by Jockstrap and more recently by Slow Dance Records. This time the man himself was in the studio, playing some of his favourite "Soundcloud treasures" including two(!!) tracks from Indiana and a couple from London too, for measure (Uncle Tesco and Naima Bock). We closed the show with a Pet Grotesque original.

Resonance FM 12/2/19

Thirty minutes of Ethiopian pop songs, new and old! I think I'm going to make this a semi-regular thing, like the 'DTT Speechless' series I'm sort-of doing. I've always played Ethiopian tunes on my show, but expect episodes dedicated exclusively to Ethiopian songs now and again. On this one I had two all-timers ('Shemma Tal' and 'Be Leselese Qual'), an awesome lo-fidelity recording from Hirut Bekele, the legendary Roha Band, enigmatic Samuel Belay who seemingly only released three tracks, and a very recent song by Destaw Teshager.

Dig That Treasure (12/2/19)
Alem Kebede - Shemma Tal
Hirut Bekele - I'm Yours Forever
Samuel Belay - Keresh Endewaza
Roha Band & Hamelmal Abate - Abeba Abeba
Destaw Teshager - Silebarekew New
Mahmoud Ahmed - Be Leselese Qu'al

Resonance FM 5/2/19 (Slow Dance)

This was a bittersweet episode for me. I had an ace guest in Marco from the South London collective Slow Dance. The plan was to play songs from their recent compilation Slow Dance '18 and talk all things local music. Unfortunately we were plagued with technical difficulties (rogue microphones, dodgy levels, unreliable aux cords) and things went south. I've patched up the show a little in post and have - I think - salvaged something decent, but it does feels like a missed opportunity. Nevertheless, he was a gracious guest and played great tunes.
