Our second show of 2019 is a bit half and half; Spiritual Jazz at the start and bigger electronic tunes to end. Albert Ayler, Sun Ra, Shed and Alva Noto amongst others, Cheers.
After a break over the holidays, our first selections of 2019 are for an old friend Luke who passed away a few years ago. As a teenager he was constantly playing everything from Antipop Consortium to Nick Drake, Vincent Gallo to Low End Theory. His curiosity for sounds and life in general was and still is infectious.
This week some instrumentals and musical reflections from found interviews. Featuring Karriem Riggins, Sa Ra, Kev Brown and more
Some more ambient tracks this week. Jason Kolar, Jon Tye and Beverley Glenn - Copeland amongst others.
Music this week comes from ambient artists Joanna Brouk, Brian Eno and Jean - Michel Blais onto French artist Emmanuelle Parrenin, Trio Aiki, Lowe and Kalma, a Nico Jaar remix of Grizzly Bear and then Suicide. iTunes
So we’ve reached our twentieth show. We still feel fairly new at it. We’ve got some guest mixes coming up over the next few months, which we’re looking forward to, as well as some other stuff we’re working on. Hope you enjoy this week’s selection.
Soul, Funk, Disco and Gospel this week. Kicking off with MFSB and onto Leon Haywood, Stones Throw’s Stimulator Jones, one of Marvin Gaye’s ‘In our lifetime’ record and then some big gospel tunes. iTunes
More tunes this week that are maybe suited to darker nights and colder weather (in the U.K that is). Mostly jazz from classic artists Bill Evans and Charles Mingus and onto more avant-garde artists Albert Heath and Michael Garrick Sextet, the music finishes with The Electric Prunes ‘Holy Are You’ produced by David Axelrod and a Sonny Sharrock tune called ‘Who does she hope to be’. Cheers iTunes
Music from countries such as Sudan, Ethiopia and Brazil. There is a live track from the brilliant London based band The Scorpios, an experimental one from Derek Bailey and Cyro Baptista, Samba from Jose Prates and finishing with dance floor friendly remixes by Daphni and Medlar. Thanks
A largely mellow assortment for this week. The selection opens Dr John's 'Did She Mention My Name?' includes the low key funk of Cymande's 'One More' and closes with Herbie Mann's 'Guinnevere', which features nice guitar work from the great Sonny Sharrock.
With the weather on the turn we thought it might be nice to throw together some cosy tracks this week. Starting with Arthur Russell and Midlake onto Kamasi Washington’s 13 min (why not) epic track ‘Truth’ and finishing off with some soulful Hip Hop tracks. Cheers.
This week’s mix is another varied one. Some balearic stuff from Music from Memory, a Sketches from an Island remix of Tears for Fears and then progressing onto more housey tracks from the likes of Trus’me . Cheers
We Forfeit is Robbie Geoghegan and Chris Robertson, two men based in Madrid making mixes and living their lives. They’ve been mixing music and collecting records for donkey’s years now but have only been setting stuff to MP3 for the past twelve months, you’ll find all the mixes here.
You’ll also catch them from time to time playing out in the Spanish capital.
For this one Robbie and Chris have wandered down a more abstract and ambient path. Chris has chosen some cracking tracks from labels from across the globe and from some known more for a tougher more galvanized style, such as Power Vacuum and Frustrated Funk. "South Pacific" is taken from a Joey Beltram's Aonox album, a collection of tracks with a far milder sound than his well known punchy productions which was released last year. Chris also chose a really sweet number from Caron's excellent EP from a couple of years back as well as offering two tracks from labels based in Spain: El Gaviero Ediciones and the superb Lapsus.
Robbie has picked out a selection of old ambient records with some modern abstract experimentations. To start off is the strangely intimate musical machinations of Zoviet*France before the modulations of Severence and the rough edges of TR Kirstein & Sune T.B. Nielsen. In the middle is a favourite from Richard Devine with two selections from the excellent Chill Out or Die Vol 2 on Rising high split by the warmth of FrameWatcher on Shimmering Moods.
Robbie has reviewed a number of the records from which tracks have been selected, such as Roger 23's cracking LP on Mensch and Oubys' eerie sci-fi inspired Second Planet. The finale comes in the shape of Lexanculpt's orchestral "Anburl" from Gosub's always inspiring Isophlux.
This week we compiled a selection of ambient and minimal tracks from a mix of hip hop, soul, electronic artists such as Ssaliva, Bilal Salaam, Jay Electronica, Vincent Gallo & more. In opting for largely drum-less tracks the aim was to create a fluid, soundtrack-like experience.
Continuing on with our fairly eclectic Corked series we have tracks from the likes of Cybe, La Dusseldorf and Mungolian Jet Set. Cheers
