Ear Conditioning Radio 27.01.09

Going out tonight via the airwaves of Radio Norte/Tenerife....Newness from DJ/rupture's  Soot label.  They have two albums ready to go, 'Dirty Bomb' from Filastine, and an album from Argentina's El Hijo de la Cumbia.  Filastine has a new blog which holds words and pix from his travels and how this new album came into shape. If skewwed up maghreb-bass heavy-political as fuck sonic reflections are your thing, seek no more.  

On a side note, last week, or maybe the week before, Robert/3D of  Massive Attack posted on the Hoping Foundation, which assists Palestinian children.  One of their myspace 'friends' felt that "musicians should stay out of politics".  Get a grip guy.  
Should we leave politics to politicians?  
If so, why do we vote for them?  
I think our man has forgotten that they are our representatives.  
Okay, he isn't the only one that has forgotten this fact. 
We are all guilty of such, and have let politicians run amok.  
Anar-fucking-chy...or something different than this non-participatory couch potato politics.

Right, back to sports....

Emilliano Gómez is Hijo de la Cumbia, which translates as 'cumbia's son'.  Smile-generating upsteppin' movimientos estas aqui hombre....muy guapo.

The third contribution in today's program that has Dj/rupture's hand on it in some way is the mix from Spoek Mathambo of Sweat X.  Via his negrophonic blog, he posted a link to the mix.
Electro, hip hop, 4/4, dubstep and swathes of Detroit techno embrace each other in this mix.

From the Studio Rockers label  is The Widdler, outta New Jersey.

So there you have it for this week's radio blast.

Two further stations here in Tenerife (Sunhole.net and PlanetRadio) have got in touch this week regarding carrying the program, so finally we should have a decent internet/podcast facility happening as well as island-wide coverage through the traditional airwave/broadcast method.  More news on that as it happens.
