NTS – APRIL 2021 W/ PAM & CARLOS

April is the cruelest month. It's also one of my favorite months, days are noticeably getting longer, hotter and sunnier in Paris, and I'm not suffering from hay fever yet. But the poet is right, it's a cruel month. Its spring colours lure us. Our expectations for a good change are great, but, by the…Lire la suite NTS – APRIL 2021 W/ PAM & CARLOS

NTS – MARCH 2021 W/ PAM & NTN

When I work on a mix, I often take cues from films. Most of the time, they influence me in a subtle, almost subconscious way. This time though, it would be extremely hard to hide the influence Alan Parker's Angel Heart had over the mix. I've been obsessed with this film since I saw it…Lire la suite NTS – MARCH 2021 W/ PAM & NTN

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 2019 W/ PAM & DJ F16 FALCON

Not only is DJ F16 a great producer, he is also a DJ. Hence the name, yes. The two of us deliver a two hour-long broad exploration of "Dub", from its Jamaican origins to its most leftfield artefacts. https://www.mixcloud.com/NTSRadio/okonkole-y-trompa-9th-october-2019/ TRACKLIST : BBC 4 - Reggae Britannia (Extract) SNARES - Electric Funeral DJ F16 FALCON - Family Grocery Haul TENASTELIN, TNT…Lire la suite NTS SHOWS – OCTOBER 2019 W/ PAM & DJ F16 FALCON

NTS SHOWS – AUGUST 2019 W/ PAM & ALEXANDRA BENALLA

This Summer, I've been trying to find relief from the terrible heatwave in movie theatres. Not that I need an excuse to spend hours in theatre, but the weather probably steered me towards cold and rainy films. The night was particularly hot when I saw a wonderfully remastered Blade Runner. What a shock it was.…Lire la suite NTS SHOWS – AUGUST 2019 W/ PAM & ALEXANDRA BENALLA
