dub

reggae

folk

Folk are people in general. Folk is also the tradition of those people. And Folk is an independent art collective founded by artist Paola Lesina, which is dedicated to sound and performance art.
Keep your ear to the ground. Amhara dives into dub reggae, moving between funk and roots.

Joe Combo doesn’t talk like your average radio DJ. His program is called Fantasia, and it lives in the cracks, in-betweens, and dead-air—the places where the mind tends to wander. That’s where Joe Combo can be found, with a kaleidoscope in hand, thinking about the geometry of combination.

Ambiti is a deceptively straightforward program. It explores sounds throughout the world and within the mind. Where is beyond? Les Giants select records of traditional, ambient, experimental sounds.

experimental

freak folk

On its surface, the show offers an introduction to artists from Turin-based label Gang of Ducks. But it is better described as an eclectic blend of electric sounds. The collective is known for a holistic approach, and hybrid mixing of music. Yes, Centro Delfino is an introduction to their roster of artists, but it is also an introduction to the label’s sonic politics, and the generosity with which it makes its inspirations, affiliations, and alliances clear.

quinto mondo

folk

tropical

Italian pan-exoticist label Artetetra is ready to take you deep down into the uncanny valleys and unearthly canyons of our new millennium’s sonic languages: tropical bleepin’n’bloopin’ electronics, post-geographical audio curiosities, and micro-compositional, deranged, and otherworldly folk tunes. A nonlocal cant. A paradoxical creole. This is Future Pidgin!
