NTS – SEPTEMBER 2020 W/ PAM : MUSIC ON 45 – PART. II

As I couldn't fit all my favorite French 7" in a single show, here's another Music on 45 special show. The first part mostly takes cue from Hou Hsiao-hsien accomplished Flowers of Shanghai, a collection of suffocating portraits shot in 4 Shanghai brothels, in the late 19th Century. The show crosses path with a couple…Lire la suite NTS – SEPTEMBER 2020 W/ PAM : MUSIC ON 45 – PART. II

NTS – JANUARY 2021 W/ PAM, BELEC & SAINTE-RITA

The price to pay for a promotional article on OYT was to contribute to our monthly radio show on NTS. Sainte-Rita & Belec did their part admirably by submitting an exhilarating mix of 1990's Europe optimist house pop and quirky downtempo cuts. https://www.mixcloud.com/NTSRadio/okonkole-y-trompa-w-pam-belec-and-dj-sainte-rita-27th-january-2021/ I did little to respect the theme as the first hour of…Lire la suite NTS – JANUARY 2021 W/ PAM, BELEC & SAINTE-RITA

NTS – OCTOBER 2020 : JEAN-LUC NEST SPECIAL W/ DJ F16 FALCON

DJ F16 Falcon joined me for a very special show this month. He has been digging into Jean-Luc Nest's archives for months and provided a perfect 60-min long introduction to the work of the Alsatian composer. https://www.mixcloud.com/NTSRadio/okonkole-y-trompa-7th-october-2020/ Jean-Luc Nest began his musical explorations with traditional instruments, including his beloved Accordion as well as electric and…Lire la suite NTS – OCTOBER 2020 : JEAN-LUC NEST SPECIAL W/ DJ F16 FALCON

NTS SHOWS – JANUARY 2020 W/ PAM & CÉLINE GILLAIN: MONEY, MONEY, MONEY_MIX

The longest hiatus in the history of this series is over ! For the first show of 2020, I was joined by "avant-pop diva" Céline Gillain, who provided a guest mix strictly about money.  In her own words, she realized that "the more music becomes experimental, the less you will find titles and lyrics about…Lire la suite NTS SHOWS – JANUARY 2020 W/ PAM & CÉLINE GILLAIN: MONEY, MONEY, MONEY_MIX

NTS SHOWS – NOVEMBER 2019 W/ PAM & BEN DROWNED

It's that time of the year again, that time when (mostly North American) people celebrate ghosts, werewolves and the rest of a bestiary popularized by Hollywood productions. From time to time, I love a little fright, especially when it comes from eerie melodies and spooky musical atmospheres. That's why I summoned Creepy Pasta legend Ben…Lire la suite NTS SHOWS – NOVEMBER 2019 W/ PAM & BEN DROWNED

NTS SHOWS – OCTOBER 2018 W/ PAM

Determinedly stepping into my favourite season of the year (alongside Summer and Spring) with OYT's latest show on NTS : beginning with Alan Albert Owen's "neo classical" masterpiece Following The Light before playing some personal heart warming classics by Lucio Battisti or Mushi & Lakansyel. Right in the middle is a record that has been…Lire la suite NTS SHOWS – OCTOBER 2018 W/ PAM

NTS SHOWS – SEPTEMBER 2018 W/ PAM & Satoshi

September : end of Summer, beginning of Autumn... I think this show operates that Season switch with some proper Balearic Chansons by the likes of Laurent Voulzy or the song that inspired Joe Dassin's L'Été Indien (Indian Summer) turning into the sad melodies of Günther Beckers or O Yuki Conjugate... TRACKLIST : WALLY BADAROU -Gabriel's…Lire la suite NTS SHOWS – SEPTEMBER 2018 W/ PAM & Satoshi
