NTS – AUGUST 2021 W/ PAM & ANDREA ZARZA CANOVA

Andrea Zarza Canova and I only met twice but I have very vivid memories of both our encounters. The first time was in Madrid, where I was spending a few days before playing at a festival. The second time was in London, where she gave me a tour of the astonishing British Library Sound Archives,…Lire la suite NTS – AUGUST 2021 W/ PAM & ANDREA ZARZA CANOVA

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

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
