Clandestino 030 – Khidja

artworks-000082853805-z0ygz5-t500x500

Delighted to have producers/DJs who have been making some of the most exciting music of the last couple of years step forward to put together this weeks podcast for us. Hailing from Bucharest, Khidja’s tracks on Emotional Especial and Forgotten Corner Records have captivated us with their hypnotic, electronic sounds flecked with a middle eastern influence. Very refreshing music. The mix promises an 80′s feel with some unknown new wave gems, an unreleased Cage & Aviary remix and their trademark eastern electronic vibe.

Clandestino 029 – Coyote

artworks-000080775937-l0ujn5-t500x500

Ushering in the summer season with a heavy dose of balearica are Coyote. Hailing from Nottingham, Timm Sure & Ampo are veterans of the UK acid house movement and are now purveying sublime eclectic music through their IsItBalearic? and Magic Wand labels. The ‘B’ word is oft over used these days to describe any old noodly nonsense, but Coyote retain the original balearic spirit designed for dancefloors and good times. Look out for our own EP on IsItBalearic Recordings later this year.

Clandestino 028 – Headman / Robi Insinna

Clandestino 28 - Headman

Delighted to welcome Headman aka Robi Insinna for this month’s podcast. We first met Robi when we invited him to play at our Polaroid party a few years back but we have been following his work for some time. His Relish Recordings imprint is one of Europe’s most discerning labels and always worth checking, with recent quality output from Scott Fraser, Dan Avery and Robi himself. The new Headman album entitled ’6′ will be out in September and features collaborations from Brassica, Emperor Machine and Bozzwell. Robi has directed his own video for it as well as some special prints so look out for those along with two vinyl samplers EP’s preceding the album in June. His mix includes the first track from the EP ‘Work’ featuring Brassica, turn it up!

Black Merlin (pt 2)

A welcome return for Black Merlin aka George Thompson who delivers the second part to his very well received mix for us last year. As one of our most popular sets to date, we’re delighted to present this second instalment. George continues to be very busy with a slew of new material due out soon. Look out for a partnership with Gordon Pohl from Musiccargo called ‘Karamika’. They have a debut LP out through ESP Institute which has been three years in the making. Another collaboration with Kyle Martin entitled ‘Spectral Empire’ will also be one to check while you can expect new Black Merlin material over the next couple of months on Crimes of the Future, Bhokari and our label of the moment Emotional Response

Clandestino 026 – Leftside Wobble

artworks-000073038219-vb51hw-t500x500

Some words from Leftside Wobble regarding his mix for us:

“Leftside Classics is a retrospective featuring some of the tracks that have meant the most to me over the last five years or so. These are the tracks that somehow always find a way back into my sets, tracks that rise above the transient and tracks that defy limiting genre pigeonholes. My sets have always been about joining the dots, celebrating the eclectic and supporting those tracks that exist in the rich hinterland between dub, funk, disco and house. Hopefully this retrospective captures that overriding ethos.

I’ve included a small selection of unreleased LW bits and a few exclusive versions of well known staples to keep things pushing forward too.

As ever hope you enjoy. x”

Clandestino 025 – Discodromo / Valentin Especial

artworks-000070663136-88z9kh-t500x500

Something a little different on this weeks podcast as Discodromo take time out from recording underground electronic club music for labels such as Internasjonal to deliver a beatless selection especially the lovers. If you find yourself in Berlin check out their CockTail D’Amore party, you can also find them playing regularly at Panorama Bar. Look out for the forthcoming ‘Ten Years of Phonica’ album which includes their track ‘Boi’. Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream…

Clandestino 024 – il Bosco

artworks-000069458643-cbmq8n-t500x500

We’re not quite sure if Il Bosco is a real person or a cyborg that stalks Manchester’s more salubrious night spots. One thing that is for sure, it’s human alter-ego Christian Wood is most definitely real and presides over Manchester’s Red Laser Records, a vinyl only Italo influenced love letter to music from a bygone neon era with a refreshingly forward thinking attitude. We recommend you check out his blog, a searingly honest and acerbically witty view of all that’s wrong with the state of most of the current dance scene. Look out for forthcoming releases on Red Laser from our very own Nick Smith, Ste Spandex and a double gatefold compilation of ‘mad rare Italo bangers’. The label also throw occasional Red Laser Disco parties, the next of which is at The Roadhouse in Manchester on 4th April with Clandestino fave Ali Renault.

Franz Underwear

We’re back after the New Year and very pleased to welcome our first mix of the year from another one of Italy’s Slow Motion crew, Franz Underwear. Now residing in Berlin and with recent releases on Tusk Wax, World Unknown and Clouded Vision, Franz is one of the busiest DJ’s in Europe; his sets are a mix of obscure Italian dance, disco house, new wave, space beats, cosmic grooves, electro, acid and some hints of Detroit and Chicago. This mix is an exclusive live performance from the Same Heads party in Berlin where he played alongside Ivan Smagghe.

Clandestino 022 – Kid Who

Kid Who

South London DJ, Remixer and Producer Kid Who aka Louis Jacquet steps forth into our virtual DJ booth on this week’s episode to lay down some tracks he loves but doesn’t get the opportunity to play out. Expect new beat, proto-house, weird new wave and synth sounds. Louis has racked up solid releases on Mindless Boogie, Sccucci Manucci and Nang while running his own Bravura imprint. He has a track out this week on the excellent Rainbow Partners compilation and we should see a new EP out on Bravura early next month. Dim the lights, switch on the lasers…
