FV 158 – Delicate Tension

By Radna · November 24th, 2013, 22:02 · Radio Shows

If you’re better in whispering than screaming, it’s sometimes good to play music that screams. That’s how the show starts, but not how it ends. There’s a jazz intermezzo about a magic ritual, and there’s Connan Mockasin who we couldn’t forget about – mainly since we saw his video. We just heard we were going to play at Oude Kerk, which turned out to be a special saturday night; playing for both for 300 year old graves as a sudden group of dancing people.

FV 157 – The Second Time

By Radna · November 24th, 2013, 21:26 · Radio Shows

Walking, repetition and Nyabinghi drums defined the last weeks. We revisited Icon Give Thank because Radna was showing the film, we went to see John Wizards playing live in MC (if you want more: listen to Kimchi’s show with John Wizards in the studio) and we were still wondering what Dean Blunt would do at the Bimhuis this time. We still don’t know. It’s tomorrow.

FV 156 – Seven Seals of Affirmation

By Radna · November 24th, 2013, 20:53 · Radio Shows

Two hours later than usual, we moved more towards the night, with music that fitted a crisp november evening. We’re still listening to Dean Blunt, in this show joined by James Ferraro and Oneohtrix Point Never. Their music has a gloomy, almost cold quality, but combining that with the voices of Athur Russell and Nina Simone we will manage to deal with the fast approaching winter.

Extra holiday show at Dublab

By Radna · November 24th, 2013, 19:47 · Radio Shows, Special post

Following Dublab for a while now, it was a great pleasure to finally visit the headquarters of Red Light Radio’s ‘older brother’ in Los Angeles. In the middle of 3+ weeks of travelling through California, Radna and Ingmar passed by at Dublab’s studio to play one hour of their favourite holiday music – which was literally compiled from cd’s played in the car. We hope to be back soon.

Visit Dublab to listen & download the show.

FV 148 – A Lovers Melody

By Radna · November 24th, 2013, 19:18 · Radio Shows

In the late summer of 2013 we listened to the gentle sounds of La Teranga International Band, breezy jams by Steely Dan and Weather Report and summer love musings by Tirzah and Sampha. It was around the same time the editor of DJ Broadcast wrote a column about the show that made Radna feel both flattered as slightly embarrassed, but it was all good. Listen back.

FV 147 – Zen Spiders

By Radna · November 5th, 2013, 22:27 · Radio Shows

A touch of piano drama, broken hearts that are mended by an OG Ron C remix, and not dancing, but fighting with Micachu and Tirza. This show has it all, and it’s My Bloody Valentine that molds it together. You should see the Tirzah video as well by the way, and do some dancing with her. But let’s first listen to the show. Thank you for all the spirited comments on Hiele – we’re waiting for more from him.

FV 146 – Trippin’ Out

By Radna · October 21st, 2013, 12:57 · Radio Shows

To be honest, we’ve always struggled a bit with the ‘vintage’ in our name. But sometimes a name is just a name, and you shouldn’t worry too much about it. This episode has some vintage qualities though, and it sounds more like a dusty cassette tape than a brand new sound system (but nothing against that). We even start with a cover by the leading lady from the broken beat era, about a decade ago. Lord Quas pops up too. Time flies.

Bembe Segue – I’ll Wait For You (Sun Ra cover)
Jay Dee – Diamonds
Omar – The Man (Emanative Space remix)
Sampha – Beneath the Tree
Love of Live Orchestra – Condo
Gifted and Blessed – The Gospel

FV 145 – Say What You Wanna Say

By Radna · October 21st, 2013, 12:20 · Radio Shows

It’s mid October when I write this, which means we haven’t updated the website for a VERY long time. I guess it’s a new record. But listening back to this show, to write down the track list again, I remember this was around the time we rediscovered the Lovebug Starski song, and Night after Night by the Egyptian Lover was on repeat. Not everything is old school here though, there’s lots of new electronic music by Ikonika, Stellar Om Source, Machinedrum and other contemporary producers.

Lovebug Starski – Say What You Wanna Say
Obey City
FKA Twigs – Water Me
Sampha – Without
Stellar OM Source – Polarity
Egyptian Lover – Night After Night
Ikonika – Completion V3.3
Alan Lomax Collection – Luce-O, Luce Mauvais
The Impressions – Star Bright
Ken Boothe – Give Me The Right
Steve Moore – Lwasxna
Machinedrum – Body Touch
Maxmillion Dunbar – Peel an Orange in One Piece
Cid Rim – Poellau
Krystal Klear – From The Start
George Duke – For Love (I Come Your Friend)

FV 144 – Alone in her cave

By Radna · August 4th, 2013, 20:46 · Radio Shows
Looking back to what I played, I have to laugh reading the title of the first song of this show. Maybe I was alone in my cave, since Reinier was on holiday, and the Red Light Radio studio sometimes feels a bit like a (cozy, warm) cave, at the backside of the oldest church in the city.
This show is really laid back, because when the weather is warm you should take it easy sometimes – which doesn’t always mean this is simple background music, but that’s something you should judge for yourself.

Deep Magic – Alone in her cave
Dean Blunt – Y3
Juana Y Rosalia – Finis Africae
Ariel Pink & Jorge Albrecht – Hang on to life
De La soul – Intro
Sly & The Family Stone – Thank You For Talkin’ To Me Africa
James Pants – This Generation
Fatima – Circle
2Pac – So Many Tears [Instrumental]
Blludd Relations – Us
Mac DeMarco – Ode to Viceroy
Digital Underground – Strawberry Letter 23
Lianna La Havas – Forget (Kwes rework)
SFV Acid – Dwell Master Infinite
Ariel’s Pink Haunted Graffiti – Hot Body Rub
Mammane Sani et son Orgue – Tunan
Sun Ra – Love in Outer Space
