Your Ticket to… Garifuna Music

Your Ticket to… Garifuna Music

It can be considered a miracle if and how little more than 500 thousand souls have been able to safeguard and evolve such a rich and diverse tradition like Garifuna. In fact, despite enduring nearly a 400-year struggle, Garinagu people have protected their heritage and kept its uniqueness alive. Garifuna...
Your Ticket To… 2016

Your Ticket To… 2016

This month’s playlist is a bit different from the ones you’re used you to: no style or genre introduction. Instead, we chose to celebrate 2016 and wanted to do it in “our way”. We picked some of the best tunes we have listened to throughout the year and asked our contributors to...

As sometimes happens to music industry personalities, Raffaele Costantino also felt the need to create a character and wear the clothes of a “superhero”. At one point in a career spent as one of the most renowned Italian radio hosts, producers, writers and artistic directors, instead of wearing a mask,...
Interview: Murat Ertel – Baba Zula (January 2017)

Interview: Murat Ertel – Baba Zula (January 2017)

If there’s a genre-defying band par excellence, it has to be Baba Zula. Throughout its 20-year story, celebrated this year with XX (double-CD released by Glitterbeat that we recently reviewed), the Istanbul-based project has introduced its audience to an entirely new perspective of Turkish music. Today, its hypnotic blend of traditional,...
Review: Bostich + Fussible (Rich Mix, 10th February 2017)

Review: Bostich + Fussible (Rich Mix, 10th February 2017)

There are people who want to build walls and others who aim to tear them down, both metaphorical and physical. Maybe it wasn’t meant to evoke any parallelism, but it’s inevitable to find a connection between what is going to be built on the US/Mexican border and the final moments...
