Radio überlin vol. 1

by James Glazebrook


Welcome to episode 1 of Radio überlin! For our first ever radio show, Zoë and I sat down to shoot the shit about Felix da Housecat being turned away from Berghain and taking it no so well, as well as the line-up of the first ever Lollapalooza Berlin. We also answered a reader’s question about making the big move from California to Berlin, and played tracks by Iggy Pop, Beam Up, Losers, Phia, Jamaica Suk and Alec Empire. Tune into Berlin Radio International every Thursday evening from 8:30pm to hear more!

Music Montag: Beam Up

by James Glazebrook

Fuck, it’s been hot here. Here’s some dub to make Berlin feel even more like the Caribbean: Beam Up featuring Terrence Bowry. Over the top of a vintage roots reggae riddim, Bowry recounts the experience of living in Shanghai when the 2011 tsunami hit, enhanced by the exotic sounds of Japanese fireworks, insects and kodo drumming. Produced in the Berlin-36 studio, this is heavy stuff, but the perfect soundtrack to a blazing summer’s day.
