Rejections Mix

 Today I was pleased to air a mix from Michael Hann AKA Rejections on NTS radio.  I kicked off the first fifteen minutes of Alien Jams, but Michael provided the selections for the rest of the show.

A few words from Michael-
  “The tracks on this mix are a sample of the music which is currently influencing and inspiring my next set of releases, which in the main will be out next year (some preview material will be out before the end of 2013). The ideas behind the new set of releases flow from my efforts for Opal Tapes, Jehu and Chinaman and my own label Reject and Fade, which are in essence a personal exploration of spirituality and meaning within the noise and cacophony of the modern age. And the ongoing search for the perfect pint of stout.”

 Today I played some tracks that were pretty out there! With lots of the usual bizarre experimental synth,  perhaps starting off a bit darker than usual.   The second half of the show changed pace a little with spacey jams from Bezier (Dark Entries) and Peter Murgatroyd.

Alien Jams with Guest Pietro from Reverie

Today Pietro Barbieri-h joined me as a guest in the studio.  I started off the show with a track from Alessandro Parisi’s Draconia and Pietro took things from there, playing an hour of excellent electronic music from his vinyl collection.  Pietro does a show on NTS called Reverie, with Jonathan Hampton and it’s definitely worth checking out! here’s a link to their NTS show… Pietro is also pretty involved in music here in London, he writes for Juno Plus and works at Honest Jon’s as well as working on his own material.  It was a pleasure having him on the show!
