NTS – JULY 2021 W/ PAM B2B MINIATURE

It's been a long time since I last shared the decks with someone on the show, thus I was very grateful for Alice to offer to meet in real life and record a mix live on CDJ's. Alice De Jode aka Miniature has been working at NTS fulltime for a couple of years now, and…Lire la suite NTS – JULY 2021 W/ PAM B2B MINIATURE

NTS – MAY 2021 W/ PAM : MUSIC ON 45 – PART. III

3 is a magic number. As soon as I turned this "Music on 45 special" into a series by recording a second part in September, I knew there would be a third part. Here it is. I partly focused on the last years of the format's heydays, just before CD's became affordable. Expect a few…Lire la suite NTS – MAY 2021 W/ PAM : MUSIC ON 45 – PART. III

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 – AUGUST 2020 W/ PAM : 10 PIANO PIECES + 1 & MUSIC ON 45 – PART. I

I think the title of the show speaks for itself. All by myself, I decided to record not one but two 60 minutes specials : The first one is all about piano pieces that are dear to my heart - ranging from Messiaen, to Thelonious Monk via Sakamoto and Mary Lou Williams. The "+ 1"…Lire la suite NTS – AUGUST 2020 W/ PAM : 10 PIANO PIECES + 1 & MUSIC ON 45 – PART. I

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
