Hello everyone,.. oh hello summer! 

I hope everyone is enjoying the long awaited rays of sunshine touching our skin. Make sure you have sunscreen with you - always… and that your friends don’t draw funny things on you with it while you sleep in the sun.

It’s been a very intense week at radio HQ. We’ve had an offer too good to refuse and it will change everything 🤯 I still can’t really believe it’s going to happen. Before I tell you more, I would love to take a moment to thank everyone who is tuning to our station, asking for IDs in chatroom, sending us feedback and beautiful words in emails. It gives us energy to keep going and helps us remember that there is more good than evil in this world.

Soon we will hopefully be able to enjoy freedom sans restrictions. But the reality is that we are still in a global pandemic, the virus is still here and it’s very important that the whole world gets the vaccine, not just the country we live in. 

Everyone wants to go back to “normal”. Question is - do we really want to go back to that? Was it actually good? Don’t you have a feeling that we should try to re-define “normal” a little?

In my honest opinion, the time before the pandemic wasn’t “normal”, and the pandemic just exposed that. Even the music industry has its own Jeff Bezzos or Dyson kinds.

We had artists taking fees based on some alternate reality, djs gaining privileged access to gigs. We had visionless promoters ignoring the potential of local talent just because it’s more comfortable to blindly follow templates - play it ‘safe’. We had night clubs who didn’t come up with any creative approach to the situation and then ended up with “table service gigs” where the music, or logistics don’t reflect the reality of the situation, and extra effort is wasted on security shouting at people trying to have fun and stopping them to do what they have been triggered to do - like, dance. 

We have chill-out djs or djs who are playing music for people who have to sit and pay serious money to book a table.

It’s not like we didn’t have enough time to be creative. It is possible to make restrictions enjoyable, it’s totally possible to think outside of the imaginary box and old templates. 

So, maybe old dinosaurs need to go extinct, the bubbling scene full of talents have to get out of illegality and show the millionaire and corporation owned venues what it should look like when you are creative. 

We all should think twice about what kind of tickets we are buying and what kind of events we are going to support. There will be plenty of those who have been busy and creative the entire time. And when you go out, please be responsible, follow advice and rules of organisers and mainly - give the others space and respect. You will enjoy it much much more, trust me…

Future is bright

Stay tuned

Hello and welcome back,

Hope you enjoyed Shimmy’s editorial last week and made plenty of notes. I’ll be easy on you this week…. How is your tan coming along? 

Big 💙 to everyone who came down to Netil Market last weekend to celebrate the 4th year of our box of love and unity. Djs, friends and strangers singing “Happy Birthday” with us on a sunny Saturday afternoon was a delight. Massive shout-outs - to IONA for joining us with an amazing set full of energy, all the weekday DJs finally experiencing weekend vibes! S/o’s - to Luca & Avsluta for keeping the torch overnight until early morning; DJ Winggold and Blake for early morning sessions; Van Dyke Browne for forgetting to put his record bag in the car, so I had to do “a bit of everything” selection from my trusted collection, which ended up as a very enjoyable B2B. More S/o’s go to DJ Aya and her B2B twin Harras for a late Sunday set which took us into an imaginary club we all dream about; Entebbe Soundsystem’s Ras P & Tuffie Irie for joining extended 4h long Hackney Dub Club and EddyB and his Neighbourhood Cotch fam for closing the weekend so smooth. You can find all the amazing sets HERE.

This week I realised a beautiful happening within the Netil Radio family and wanted to extend a BIG hug to all the radio mums and soon to be mums - Heather, Slauka, Amrisha and Demetra for being so amazing and for always making meaningful contributions to our programming - It's an incredible feeling and we can’t wait to have these future talents in the studio! Slauka - started the movement last month, having her son in studio for the first time 🙃 

We have a few interesting things cooking in our ideas-kitchen, so stay connected.

With love

Eyes Have Babes' own Joshua Corbett sent us his top three bandcamp purchases of last month. Catch his show today 1-3pm

Purple Hands - Intimate Fades - High Priestess Recording

What a treat this is! I fell in love with this release and the label after witnessing the spectacle that is Purple Hands perform live. Keep tuned with High Priestess Recording as they seriously have their fingers taped to the pulse.

Leather Rats - No Live 'Til Leather '98 - Bokeh Versions

Bokeh Versions meet Leather Rats... A 90s punk-psychobilly tape that reveals a recording of Leather Rats playing to their huge Japanese following. Why hadn't I heard of them, eh? Pure rat food that I will never grow tired of here. 

V/A - Pentrich Rising - Industrial Coast

You can't find something not to love in here. A gargantuan digital compilation spanning from teenage bedroom folk to weapons-grade jungle. Courtesy of Industrial Coast back in April in their pursuit of raising funds for the Red Cross in Beirut. The compilation is unfortunately no longer available but you can support the artists directly.

Naffi’s guest Rosie Holloway has a new album and you can catch her in conversation with the man next Tuesday 1-3pm

StrettoBlaster sent us a few links too!

Check Terrasolare - Italian-owned London-based label with a terrible penchant for good music . Their first two releases on 7” inch are somewhat incredibly good

and worth of mention also the magic behind Jancro - East-London own reference for lovers rocks and roots reggae. Latest release from Cornell Campbell is worth a mention

Words

Hello People of Netil Radio… Shimmy here today. There were so many ways to start this week’s Newsletter. A week that marks the anniversary of George Floyds (Rest In Power) 

A murder, carried out in broad daylight, by a uniformed cop and captured on a smart phone.

Around 1000 people are killed at the hands of cops in the US every year. Proportionately similar in the uk. Watching the world rising up against this last year during the BLM protests, both on the streets and online, in a movement that included the voices of millions of us around the world standing up and speaking out to amplify the voices of those less heard was heartening and gave me hope. It felt like the world was waking up and realising the power of our collective efforts campaigning to stop similar injustices against humanity. 

State violence is real and if we don’t begin to rise up against it, I fear for the future. If Priti Patel gets her way, in this country even peaceful protests will become illegal. I hope you have signed petitions and written to your MP regarding this matter. Please follow this link to do so

How do we decide how and where to use our voices and how do we decide what is right and wrong…? I often find that looking at facts help. Not so easy with the amount of mis-information and distorted truths are told by the mainstream. 

Killing children and civilians, who are essentially trapped - is wrong and can not be reasoned. But why take my word for it - click on the facts

In the information age in which we find ourselves there is A-Lot to shift through. Literally everyone is shouting but be careful to differentiate between opinion and facts. Also, language - it’s a powerful tool and manipulated so subtly that until you are actively seeking to critique it - dehumanising subtleties can be hard to pick up - but believe, they are there. 

If we use the most recent events in Illegally occupied Palestine as an example of crimes against humanity. Palestinians are described as “dead” and Israeli casualties are “killed” - hearing little manipulations of language like that everyday, from ‘trusted’ news sources that we pay for (BBC) without questioning them and before long - Palestinians are somehow less human than Israelis and therefore not worthy of the same rights - this is further perpetuated by the fact that war crimes committed against the people of an illegally occupied Palestine have long gone ignored. 

Just to put it into context for you, Israel has broken 65 UN resolutions - crimes against humanity, without being condemned by most of our world leaders/ international community. Iraq allegedly broke 2 and was invaded, bombed and destroyed. 

In the song “I can’t breathe”  H.E.R. raps - “Destruction of minds, bodies, and human rights. Stripped of bloodlines, whipped and confined. This is the American pride. It’s justifying a genocide

But what exactly is genocide? A United Nations commission of experts defined ethnic cleansing as “a purposeful policy designed by one ethnic or religious group to remove by violent and terror-inspiring means the civilian population of another ethnic or religious group from certain geographic areas.

We can see that happening in places around the world including; Xinjiang region of China, where there are literal concentration camps incarcerating Uyghurs and forcing them to make clothes for high street brands such as Zara and H+M. The Rohingya population and Palestinians - there are others too and until ALL  of us are free  - none of us are.  

Lest we be complicit in our silence and through our purchasing choices. Whether you wish to believe it or not it’s the silence of the privileged and our lazy choices that help to perpetuate the atrocities happening around the world. 

The good news is that there are things we can all do if we truly wish for change. It’s time to come together, united - to stand up and be the change we seek - in whatever ways we can, big or small…. 

As we amplify the music,  let us also amplify the voices of the voiceless and oppressed.  

What you can do to help stop crimes against Humanity…..

BOYCOTT

BDS - Buycott, divestment and Sanctions - this approach worked for stopping apartheid in South Africa could hopefully work in this instance - helping to stop the illegal occupation of Palestine.

Hello and welcome to Netil Radio Weekly,

What a week. Sometimes it feels like we have a warp drive in our mothership. I just sent last week’s newsletter and here I am writing another one just a few seconds later. 

No matter of speed or time travel, the moment is here - Shimmy will take over the editorial next week and write a few points about what is happening in Gaza right now and what we can do to support those who need it. Make sure you don’t miss it.

Speaking of politics - from time to time, I will link you to interesting investigations and opinions focused on one of the biggest and very real problem this world (especially this country) has right now - corruption and how it goes hand in hand with dark money of organised crime, various regimes, what is the connection with UK’s brexit, or what was missing in Queen’s speech... No worries I will be linking serious journalism not conspiracies. I leave those for facebook users - starting next week.

As the “table service techno” (or disco) setting in venues across the city is in full swing, why wouldn’t we join with no techno and no disco, but nice music to soundtrack your brunch? Let’s hope for dry weather this Saturday. Our first trip outside the mothership is happening this weekend at Number 90 as a part of their 7th Birthday celebration. Last change to grab your table here!

Three winners of something Tote-ally useful and pretty - Alice, Lucy and Hugo will receive their presents this week - WooH Well done! Keep an eye out for our occasional interactions to win nice things.

New Music

This week’s warrior of sharing his inspiration - ROUGH sent us his music tips:

Loraine James: Reflection - As we are used to it by now, Loraine James is delivering quality music for quite a while now. Glitchy IDM-Jazz-broken rhythms are once again coming into play in the new EP Reflection coming out on the 4th of June 2021.  “ Reflection is pared down and confident, taking the listener through how the year felt as a young Black queer woman and her acolytes in a world that has suddenly stopped moving.” 

Conforce/Hexagon/Versalife: Hexagon&Versalife V / A - Altered Sense 004   The emotional journey through Conforce/Versalife/Hexagon music is always unexpected, full of twists and turns and makes you move from the inside. I have (once again) discovered this artist with 3 aliases (yes all 3 aliases are producing amazing music) thanks to Luca Schiavoni’s refined record collection. In this last EP, coming forward with 2 of the aliases Hexagon & Versalife, there are four beautiful tracks, two of which are very   Drexciya and the other 2 are very Hexagon broken rhythms charged with depth of sounds and emotions. 

Marco Bruno - This EP is once again quality. The broken grooves, the powerful rhythm, and the soul behind every track is a testament of the great artist Marco Bruno is. This LP spreads across the genre of electronic music and it’s a must have record. The track No Regrets (feat Velvet May) is for me set to become a New Modern Classic. Also the Answer Code Request Remix of Devil’s Heaven is truly emotional. 

Diego Amura: Pattern Series - The Neapolitan dj and producer has been making noise in the Napoli Techno Scene and the waves are reaching Europe. With support from Marcel Dettman, Stingray and residency for the NicetoBe party, Diego Amura is an exciting artist to watch!

Vesuvius Soul Records - The first VA and first ever release of Vesuvius Soul Records is an electronic music journey through IDM, glitchy sounds,  acid patterns, and 4/4 to broken rhythms. Expressing the colourful soul of the artists of the city of Napoli, made of intense red lava coming from the Vesuvio, and the deep blue of the Mediterranean sea to form the contrasts of the Napoli lifestyle. This EP is fresh and makes you move.

Aboutface presents ‘An ocean of ink in a single drop’. Bi-monthly every 4th Friday of the month.

Aboutface presents – an ocean of ink in a single drop is an ongoing experimentation that applies conceptual themes to explore an expanded approach to the traditional radio DJ performance, through live multi-instrument improvisation, spoken word/poetry and field recordings, mixed into and combined with genre-spanning music selections that include audience submissions or music from artists following my SoundCloud account. The aim of this residency is to create a surreal and layered experience, where the lines between the artist and audience, music and improvisation, scene and setting, all blur into an indistinguishable psychedelic journey that creates a unique space-time radio drama that depicts the complex interactions of humans, as a part of nature.  Each episode is different is mood, feeling and has no creative boundaries: always performed live; never pre-recorded, and developed alongside original artworks and audio-visual films. 

My artistic background is more related to conceptual art than as a DJ or musician: I identify flutes, guitars and synths as tools in the artistic palette, like paints, clay and photography, which is why over the last 5 years, all my live performances place the same importance all these materials, as a part of music performance itself. Following 5 years on NTS radio who purely aired my live performances, to have a new bi-monthly platform on Netil Radio to experiment new dj/live hybrid techniques, it’s greatly beneficial to my progression as a performer, challenging me to develop new methods of live improvisation and creative DJ techniques, much needed as due to the pandemic, it has been over 1 year since my last public conceptual performance, Holometaboly.

Future-wise, in addition to continuing my Netil Radio residency, I have a couple of LP’s to drop in the next few months, one on my own Coordinates label, and another on a well know UK based experimental label, TBA in the next month or so. Outside of my music practice, I am a researcher in the field of Ecomusicology, and due to start a PhD which looks at music collaboration with indigenous forest communities, to help mitigate climate change caused by human behaviours in industrialised cities, you can read more about this on my Los Bosquesinos project webpage.

If anyone would like their music, poetry or spoken word to be included in upcoming shows, hit me up via my website or social media. The next episode of ‘Aboutface presents – an ocean of ink in a single drop’, is on Friday 28th May 1pm-3pm. The performance theme is ‘The Journey to Intropica – a 5th dimensional utopia’.
