Our Focus On Puerto Rico residency is now in full swing!


Electro Fusion

Lisa Shaw's vocals on Q-Burn's new release get chilled on Cole Medina's remix into the contemporary trippy unique sounds of Sound from the Ground's Acid Cornflats. Calibro 37 gives us a sneak peak into a new release for 2011 to be featured on a collection of soundtracks they produced over the course of several projects. Andreay Triana's release on Ninja Tune is produced by Bonobo, and you too can download a complimentary copy at Tal M. Klein's remixes are quite hot with Hawke aka Gavin Hardkiss' Inside Job and Brownout's Slinky.

Chico Mann is so electrofied it's 80's retro-keyboard & drum machine madness fused with the afro-beat sound they are known for and the entire album is 'incredible!' Coati Mundi of Kid Creole and the Coconuts fame crafted an entire electro-disco-fied album for Rong music. Do Not Brown Your Nose sums it up lovely with tongue in cheek humor in the mix. And the latest collection of artists roaming about the Eighteenth Street Lounge label are gathered for the release of Babylon Central. Lastly, Passionardor sent me their latest from Italy, however, very mysterious with no name or release date, but nevertheless great live and electronic fusion for the dancefloor. ENJOY!


In the Hopper


The latest gems from independent artists, record labels and producers! Jeannie Hopper has a long-standing herstory of giving artists a chance to be heard. In her DJ sets and on WBAI's Liquid Sound Lounge, she regularly puts together playlists of under-represented and emerging artists so her loyal following can just sit back and avoid the high-intensity shuffle of sorting through all the beautiful and overwhelming things the Information Age has to offer. Now she brings some of that good stuff to AIR.
