Big Fan!!

eclectics

For the last 10 years Gal Kadan has been one of the most prominent DJs emerging from the Israeli world music scene. Artfully mixing genres, cultures and styles, his mixes create a unique story about his place and time in the sizzling Middle East, merging lovers and haters, enemies and friends, strangers and acquaintances into one border-defying musical set.

Hailing from Israel’s nightlife capital Tel Aviv, he soon gathered a following that saw him play in the city’s leading venues The Block, The Breakfast Club and The Bootleg, as well as over seas in many European cities such as Berlin, Paris, Zurich, Cologne, Frankfurt and more.

Today Gal continues to stretch the boundaries of multiculturalism in his studio work, remixing obscure Middle Eastern gems, and in his sets, propelled by electronic beats that drive ethnic influences, creating a refreshing new approach to clubbing.

Beauty this un. x

eclectics

Pshychedelic mood, swaying rhythms, Bloody L navigates through musical richness with a distinctive sensibility. As she mixes, Bloody L, resident of the collective Abstrack from Nantes, frees herself from standards and depicts landscapes from cosmic music, balearic to ethnic influences. Listening to Bloody L is like delving into the heart of a deep selection and dancing in a world swinging between a sweet soulful trip and loosening moves, culmulating into a sincere and wholehearted mix.

The Budapest based Grabo’sky is very familiar with different styles as producer and DJ as well. He plays house, disco, hip-hop, funk, rock, 70s electronica, folk, ethno or anything that hypnotic and cool.
His DJ carrier started in 1997 and after more than a decade later he began to produce his own music in 2011. Grabo’sky started to work on simple edit versions of his favourite tracks but not much later he made more and more re-arrangments and experimented with the tracks. To this day he made numerous edits in various styles from grunge superstars Pearl Jam, krautrock heros Can, the legendary disco producer Cerrone or great names of the Hungarian pop-rock (Katona Klári, V’Moto-Rock, East, Edda, Kimnowak, etc). Meanwhile he made a lot of own tracks. He released some singles, EPs and an album. His own materials and remixes came out on labels like Mana Mana Records, SpaceWalker Recordings…

The original version of Arc of Lark also features on the ‘Balearic 2’ compilation on
Chris Coco and Jim Breese’s Balearic record label: Balearic 2 on bandcamp
Good Measure EP Part 2 on Aficionado Recordings

Simon’s next production, Ottimismo (Italian for ‘optimism’) is a particularly laidback affair and Simon didn’t hesitate to send it to Aficionado Recordings feeling it might be a perfect match for their ultra-balearic stylings…

eclec0057 | Comète Comète | 19|04|17

Lovely this one!

eclectics

“From the French city of Biarritz, the duet Comète Comète, formed by the artists Francois del Mundo and Emily Dupouy, is presented as one of the most attractive, unique and stimulating proposals within the current electronic scene as well as the heterodox one. They belong to that cast of Djs who do not stick to any specific genre and know how to navigate between different musical styles. Something shared by all legitimate music lovers, the incapacity to hierarchise genres. With a good musical arsenal behind them, they have stormed the clubs, they’ve powered through strange and mysterious lands, but it is here they’ve made their mark : combining the best of old and new, and dancing through each genre commanding your attention.”

Catch Comète Comète every thursday from 9pm to 10pm on Radio 3S, the official radio web of Solar Sound System. On the link below.

Stonehenge – more than a ring of stones.

V in depth historic analysis of Stonehenge..
Interesting to think on how many Millennia prior to their construction Solstice, Summer & Winter; were important to us -Mesolithic & beyond perhaps..
“To really understand Stonehenge the curious need to look at the wider landscape and then look further again. Afterall, not too far away is the equally astounding landscape surrounding Avebury. What was the relationship between these two sacred landscapes? “

Toni-maree Rowe - Writer

Stonehenge – a name that evokes a great many emotions in a great many people.  For some it is a place of pilgrimage, a place to connect with the ancestors and for others it is seen as a tourist trap or something to tick off the bucket list.  For centuries it has captured our imagination; never has a heritage site been so controversial – something which continues to this day.  In this post it is not my intention to give a full on thesis about Stonehenge, there are plenty of books/websites who do this already.  Instead it is simply an overview of what is currently understood about the site, its surrounding landscape and my own personal thoughts.

Stonehenge is situated on the Salisbury Plains, to the south is the busy A303, a main road between the south-west and London, and for many years the equally busy A344 ran alongside the site. …
