GLITTERBEAT PRESENTS SAMBA TOUREAll the appeal is in the name already: Samba Touré. Intense trance and dance music from Mali, groove with emotion. There is desert blues blowing through it, there is sublime guitar playing and propulsive tama-percussion, Samba himself likes to speak of modern Malian music with traditional sounds that evolve under global influences. This year he completed his 3rd CD on Glitterbeat: Wandé.

Do you remember where you were when 'De zji' by Ertebrekers went to air for the first time? We do. On the road, with the offspring in the back and the girlfriend cheerfully aside us. Suddenly a trip to the cinema took on an impromptu road-trip vibe, a sentiment that we later had many times over, as 'Otel' (Ertebrekers’ debut album, from 2016 already) turned out to be excellent cruising-material. Mellow, funky, laidback ... always a piece of summer in the glovebox.It’s now 2018. The world is still turning at an incredible speed upon its own axis and shooting through the universe fast, boldly going where no one has gone before. The big question is if we are really going anywhere at all. Or are we just treading water? In the case of Ertebrekers: not at all. Flip Kowlier, Peter Lesage and Jeffrey Bearelle put their heads together again last summer, exchanged musical ideas ('Suddenly Jeffrey turned up with about 50 demos. Little ideas, he said’ – according to Kowlier), drank coffee, felt like eating ice cream, and got to work. The result? A new album. The title? 'Crème'. Out on 8 March 2019!
The four from SWMRS headed for a new direction two years ago with ‘Drive North’, their debut album. Relevant topics like diversity and feminism – that they manage to put into perspective with a portion of humour – form the foundation of the album. We’re currently counting down to the second longplayer, with single ‘Berkeley’s On Fire’ as foretaste.The band has proved to possess an indestructible live energy.
As an artist and curator, Britain’s Kate Carr has been exploring the connections between sound, place and emotions. Her compositions and sonic mapping are built up around field recordings that she made all over the world: in the Thai countryside, in fishing villages in the north of Iceland, along the flooded shores of the Seine and the streets of Brixton, along various European coastlines, with animals in the wild in South Africa, to the wetlands of South Mexico.Carr is generally seen as one of the frontrunners of the new draft of field recording artists. In the press: ‘Her field recording lies at the calm heart of her practice. It’s nuanced, frequently gentle and undramatic, adding colours or moods via multiple instruments. The result is unpredictable and undogmatic.’ The Wire, March 2018 (Issue 409)‘The result is a recording that really captures the minutiae of her environment, picking up everything “from the radio in the villa on the valley floor to the vibrating low-growing woody shrubs braving the rocky peak.”’ FACT Mag on the From A Wind Turbine To Vultures (And Back) LP

Braindance, that is the holy trinity of progressive DJs, bedroom producers and live electronica acts. Think: the exuberant vibe of the famous Boiler Room Sessions, as well as established names in the scene who will make the AB their playground. Braindance is the ideal first stop for a night out on the town in Brussels and for mind-blowing musical discoveries.Leon Vynehall recently raised eyebrows with his Ninja Tune release, concept album ‘Nothing Is Still’, but here he is again already… to show us his more danceable side. He treads in the footsteps of legends like Four Tet, James Holden, Scuba and Mount Kimbie with his new release in the famous DJ-Kicks series.
The one responsible for the rediscovery of Bach himself, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, deserves a place in history, and the Flemish Radio Choir is thus pleased to showcase this unique composer.
