featured, New Releases


‘Die Berlin Dateien’ is the first fully instrumental hip-hop album by AVER, the chief producer of The Natural Curriculum (TNC) and it out now on Village Live Records. The first video from the project was just released too, and you can check that and the album trailer below.AVER_VINYL_MOCK1.jpgCreated whilst living in Berlin, AVER developed the 16 tracks as part of an attempt to evolve traditional sample use with more complex rhythms and off beat drum breaks. The album features scratching and beatbox by fellow members of TNC and is overlaid with German language vocals that provide an abstract narrative to further embellish the dream-like, somewhat dystopian nature of the album. Check the trailer below and the video for the track “Portale”, all shot by Ja-m-es

If you want to hear more about Aver’s creative process, listen back to OOQ pt.4 where he discusses the making of the last Natural Curriculum LP, the Hip-Hop supergroup he is part of.

Tokyo Sound Land Takeover


It was a really great pleasure to hand over the reigns of the show for a one off Tokyo Sound Land special recently. To support the European Tour dates and the EP from Anchorsong, Daisuke Tanabe and Ametsub Sam from Yuppies Music put together an hour of fantastic music from Tokyo new and old. The Future Sound of Tokyo is here and it’s amazing.
