Off the Beaten Tracks Friday 5 JUL

July 6th, 2014 · Show playlist

blog-img-radiocitizenG’Day All and thanks to everyone that tuned in for the fifth Off the Beaten Tracks show on Friday night from 8-10pm. As usual I enjoyed souring the internet for the past week to bring you the best new and interesting music from all around the globe.

This week week we got into:

  • Berlin based Artist Radio Citizen who’s downed his electronic gear and gone acoustic on a new EP… we also heard an older plugged in track of his and something from Hugo Kant where Radio Citizen does the remix honours
  • From Berlin, we moved to Kenya and took a listen to a traditional African lullaby from my friend Daniel Onyango and his band Afrika Jambo Beats
  • Then we jumped into some left-field ambient experimental from Inverchoulin out of the UK
  • After which we skipped across a few ponds to Melbourne and heard some very classy downtempo electronica from Tim Shiel

Off the Beaten Tracks Friday 13 JUN – Playlist

June 14th, 2014 · Show playlist, Uncategorized

G’Day All Tim Blaq here… thanks to all those that tuned in for the second Off the Beaten Tracks show. It may have been Friday the 13th AND a full moon, but all went well and I was able to showcase a range of new music from around the world. This week saw a focus on new Latin music to celebrate the start of the world cup soccer, but we also tapped into some old 70′s Thai funk that’s just come out on a new compilation, some very new but very old sounding smooth Soul from Lee Fields (or Little James Brown as he is known), some Island style Afrobeat with a tinge of Ragga from Afrolicous and we also heard from Mux Mool, Ms Lauren Hill and The Polish Ambassador.
