Interpol: Live at Apogee’s Berkeley Street Studio

With string lights draped along the walls and rugs blanketing the floor of a room packed with people, it was surreal to look up and realize that the band tucked in the corner was Interpol. As distinguished mixer Bob Clearmountain engineered in the control room and fans like Matador Records founder Chris Lombardi looked on, it was all in an evening at Apogee’s Berkeley Street Studio in Santa Monica where Interpol played to a receptive crowd on the eve of the release of its fourth album, Interpol, as part of a series of intimate sessions hosted by Los Angeles radio station KCRW.

While bassist Carlos D is no longer with the band, Interpol played just as precise and tight a set as ever. Joined by stalwart Dave Pajo on bass and Brandon Curtis of the Secret Machines on keyboards, the band opened with a song from the new album, “Success.” It got some heads bobbing along to the steadily building beat, but the familiar intertwining guitars on “Narc” followed by “Lights” really got the crowd swaying.

During the mid-set interview, KCRW's Jason Bentley asked about the dynamic between the original members and the new tour additions. When lead singer Paul Banks got a few good-humored laughs after describing the band as “a nice, happy family,” it wasn’t hard to believe him since their on-stage chemistry had already spoken for itself.

The band picked up where it left off with another new song, “Try It On,” which saw the sound associated with Interpol take a turn with its start—a scattered, unraveling keyboard. By the time the band closed the show with “Evil,” there was no question about where Interpol stood. The audience members abandoned merely swaying and singing under their breaths as they danced and brought a smile to Banks’ face by shouting the line, “But hey, who’s on trial?”

If you want to listen to Interpol’s performance at Apogee’s Berkeley Street Studio, tune into KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic on Thursday, September 9th at 11:15 AM PST or you can listen to it here at that time as well.

Natacha Atlas – Mounqaliba

Delivered... globalnoize | Scene | Tue 7 Sep 2010 10:04 pm

Free Download (right-click save-as) – Natacha Atlas – ‘Makaan’

Natacha Atlas has long been one of our favorite artists in the whole world here at Six Degrees. We are extremely excited to be putting out her newest album in North America, Mounqaliba, which comes out in two weeks on September 21st. Mounqaliba follows in scope 2008′s internationally acclaimed acoustic, orchestral album Ana Hina and was recorded with guests including pianist Zoe Rahman, a 20-piece Turkish ensemble and a chamber orchestra integrating western and Arabic styles. Mounqaliba (which means being in a state of reversal’ in classical Arabic) is a stunning set of original new songs, evocative interludes, and a limpid, lucid reading of Nick Drake’s ‘The Riverman’. We will be posting links to pre-order, remixes and contests  and more very soon. :)

The Buddha Phenomenon… (IE-m show 09/2010)

(IE-m/HH-08092010) – It was in Tunesia, 1948 when Claude Shalom had seen the light of day. Nobody had suspected that a musical triumphal procession of special kind of music will begin around the globe 54 years later.

Claude Shalom had codetermined considerably the night live in Paris end of the 70’s and 80’s as DJ under his artist name Claude Challe and as club owner.

Cover of Buddha Bar
Cover of Buddha-Bar

Against this background of his life style in a Hippie community on Sardinia and musical interests with journeys to Nepal, Indonesia and India it was not a big surprise that Indian musicians emerge in Claude’s compilations, whose name we regain in Indian Classical Music and Indian Electronics.

Claude published in 1999 his remixes on a double CD “Buddha Bar” (Vol. 1) – “Dinner” (CD1) and “Party” (CD2). A multiplicity of “Buddha Bar” releases followed lead-managed by the label George V. Records in Paris.

The “culinary concept” of the Buddha Bars is marketed world-wide by George V Eatertainment. Supplemented around boutiques, galleries, the “Little Buddha Cafe” and “Siddharta Cafe” we find these culinary locations with Live DJs for a relaxed of music hearing absent the hustle and bustle of metropolises like London, Monte Carlo, Prague and Kiev. Further spots are current in Shanghai, Washington, Dubai, Beirut, Cairo, Jakarta and Sao Paolo.

Buddha Bar – Vol. I and II (1999/2000)… mixed by DJ Claude Challe

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is a musician from Pakistan. He was the most prominent representative in the Qawwali singing, a category of Sufi music. Nusrat Fateh became well known in the West particularly by co-operation with Peter Gabriel. He died too early before his time at the age of only 49 (1948-1997). His music and singing was deeply felt of many listeners and colleagues as “divine”. Also Claude Challe got his inspirations from this exceptional musician (Buddha Bar – VoL. 1 (1999):  Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan – Track 10: Piya RH Piaya RH on CD2 “Party”).

The sound artist Karunesh appears with his track Alibaba on Buddha Bar – Vol. II, which was published in the year 2000. From Cologne coming and living on Hawaii Karunesh is well-known for us from the June show “Indian Electronic Music on the European continent” (part 2).

Buddha Bar – Vol. III/VII (2001/2005)… mixed by DJ Ravin

After the premiere of Claude Challe’s Buddha Bar compilations in the year 1999 and 2000 the musical journey was continued by a colleague of Claude. At first sight the eccentrically-seeming Raymond Visan alias DJ Ravin produced nine Buddha Bar albums. The releases volume 3 to 12 excluded volume 8 (mixed by Sam Popat) are shaped by Ravin’s handwriting.

In his personal self understanding Ravin defines the concept of Buddha Bar as a “sound area, which reminds of the mystic atomic sphere of a temple”.

Ravin was born 1966 in the Indian ocean, on Mauritius. He grew up in the strict Hindu tradition. As teenager Ravin came to Paris. There he made Claude Challe’s acquaintance on one of the famous Wiz Bombino parties. Claude introduced him into the world of electronic music.

In the year 2001 Buddha Bar – Vol. III appeared on the market as double CD with “Dream” (CD1) and “Joy” (CD2). Like Claude Challe’s first album in 1999 we meet again the Bansuri player Deepak Ram. He is flautist on the Indian Bamboo flute and of his musical origin a genuine representative of North Indian Classics (Hindustani music). Starting from 1975 Deepak was trained on the flute and Tabla in South Africa.  1977 he moved to Mumbai. There Deepak continued his music studies under flute maker Sri Suryaknt Limaye. Further teachers such as Pandit Vijay Raghav Rao and Hari Prasad Chourasia followed. With the prominent master on the flute Deepak takes classes till today. The track “A Night in Lenasia” on Buddha Bar – Vol. III reflects the origin of Deepak Ram. Lenasia is an Indian municipality in South Africa, south of Soweto.

Same on Buddha Bar – Vol. III the Tabla virtuose Talvin Singh gets to hearing the track “Veena”. Veena-s is a group of instruments, the Indian lutes among Sitar and Sarod belong to. Indian E-music had presented Talvin Singh in the premiere broadcasting as the founder of Indian Electronic music, so called “Asian Underground”.

The sound spectrum of the London duo Badmarsh & Shri is HipHop and Electronic music, Drum & Base, Indian Classical music and Jazz. Indian E-music presented B&S’s music in the January show 2010. The track on the 2nd CD “Joy” of Buddha Bar – Vol. III is called “Sitar ritual”.

In 2005 Buddha Bar – Vol. VII was published. On the 2nd CD “Sarangi” we find the track “Flute Fantasy”. Thus DJ Nasha landed internationally a hit, which found favour  same in India as in Western world. We selected Nasha’s track (originally from his album Hero) in August 2010 as the Video of the Month.

DJ Nasha’s sound characteristics are heavy basses and rhythmics which cannot be assigned clearly to categories.

Cafe Buddha – The Cream of Lounge Cuisine

In 2005, same year as Buddha Bar – Vol. VII was released, the English label Park Lane Records brought “Cafe Buddha – The Cream of Lounge Cuisine” on the market, as “Deluxe 5 star double CD” (house advertising).

“Cafe Buddha” refers to restaurants of same name. They were opened since 2001 by DJ Ravin and George V Restauration Group in different cities: Amsterdam, Dakar, Geneva, Hurghada (Egypt), Sharm El Sheikh (southern Sinai), Las Vegas and Nicosia (Cyprus).

The concept of the Buddha Cafes is simple: Take some club atmosphere, excellent cuisine and bewitching music.

The duo Thievery Corporation resides in Washington DC (USA). Rob Garza and Eric Hilton are renowed for their political-critical attitude, which they express also in their music, e.g. with the martial sounding track “Marching The Hate Mashines (into the sun)”. Thievery Corporation featured the American Rock band “The Flaming Lips” (Oklahoma City), also the sitar player Anoushka Shankar. Indian E-music presented her in the show “Ladies Spinning” with the track Mandala (CD “Radio Retaliation”).

On Cafe Buddha – The Cream Of Lounge Cuisine Anoushka’s half sister Nora Jones, also to daughter of the legendary Sitar maestro Ravi Shankar performs the song “Angels”. Nora Jones is featured by the New Yorker TripHop band WaxPoetic around Illhan Ersahin who is of Turkish origin.

The “jack-of-all-trades” Nitin Sawhney delivers the piece Spark. Nitin is represented on various Buddha Bar albums and same as Talvin Singh an icon of Indian electronic music, but not only. The Indian-British musician is producer and composer. Already as a child Nitin’s unusual music talent was particularly noticeable with learning the piano, Classical and Flamenco guitar, Sitar and Tabla. Nitin began his solo career in 1999 with the 1st album Boyond Skin.

Siddharta: Spirit of Buddha Bar – Vol. 3 (2006)

“Buddha Bar” respective George V. Eatertainment established the Siddharta Café in the Buddha Bar hotel in Prague. So the restaurateur: in an atmosphere of pop art, with colourful decor, modern Buddha paintings and splendid chandelier an international and contemporary “Cuisin a la Chef” is servicing all tastes and generations. In the hotel-own fashion shop the guests can buy music, T-shirts and also souvenirs.

With Siddhartha the novella of Herman Hesse crosses one’s mind. Hesse wrote 1922 “Siddhartha”. In Sanskrit this name means: “That, who reached his goals.” Buddha was called prince Siddhartha Gautama before his abdication, who’s life is dated around 4th-5th century BC.

Whether such consumer temples like the Siddharta Cafe in Prague correspond to the spirit of Siddhartha and his buddhistic self understanding, this question may remain unanswered here.

Midival Punditz is an Indian fusion duo. Gaurav Raina and Tapan Raj from Delhi mix styles like Bhangra and North Indian Classics (Hindustani) with electronic music. For the track Saathi, identically name with the Bengal cine film in 2002 the Sarangi Maestro Ustad Sultan Khan was featured by Midival Punditz. Sultan Khan played frequently purely Indian Classical music with Zakir Hussain, India largest Tabla virtuoso of our time. With Zakir Hussain played Midival Punditz together for the project Tabla Beat Science. Further Ustad Sultan Khan is present with Sayaji on “Siddharta: Spirit of Buddha Bar” (Vol. 3), a Joe Claussel Dance Transe version. Joe Claussel is a DJ, a music producer and label owner from New York.

A further title on Siddharta is “Peace is found behind wounds”. Cheb-I-Sabbha, a spiritual music adventurer promises herewith something philosophical: peace by pain. Who needs this kind of philosophy may enjoy it. Cheb-I-Sabbha visited 1970 for the first time India and became affected by Indian artists linked with the tradition of Indian Classics, e.g. the singer Subha Mudgal.

Still two artists with Indian reference are mentioned for the sake of completeness, whom we could not play in our radio show “The Buddha phenomenon” for lack of time. There is Natacha Atlas (Buddha Bar, Vol. 10) and Bombay Dub Orchestra (Buddha Bar, Vol. 10 (Remix) and Vol. 11). Natacha and BDO were presented in our earlier shows of March and August 2010.

The next broacasting of Indian E-music… is announced for Tuesday, 5th October – @ 09:00 p.m. on Tide 96.0 FM.

… and who is interested in Indian classical music: each 3rd Tuesday in the month, same time. Thus next broadcasting date for IMC – India meets Classic on 21st September @ 09:00 p.m. on Tide 96.0 FM.

Cloudscape at the Venice Biennale

Delivered... electronic beats NEWS as RSS-Feed | Scene | Tue 7 Sep 2010 2:27 pm

German climate engineering firm Transsolar and Tetsuo Kondo Architects have designed an architectural installation, Cloudscapes, previewing at the 12th edition of the Architecture Biennale of Venice (La Biennale di Venezia), and the installation is causing quite a storm.

The premise behind the architectural installation is that clouds are nature’s very own framing tool. This poetic tribute to clouds captures the stuff that dreams are made from, and thanks to the engineering team, Transsolar and Japanese-based Tetsuo Kondo architects, people can feel the ethereal texture of walking amongst clouds without having to kiss the sky.

It really is quite an impressive installation, the artificial cloud is being produced by the visualization of the nearly 100% humidity in the cloud layer through a series of Martin Professional smoke machines which create condensation seeds that render the cloud visible.

Kode9 to preview new Burial

Delivered... electronic beats NEWS as RSS-Feed | Scene | Tue 7 Sep 2010 1:22 pm

Rumours of a new Burial album have been providing the gossipmongers in the music community much to talk about over recent years.
In fact, Burial’s productivity or un-productivity in general has been the topic of much conversation too, let us not forget the much anticipated Burial DJ-Kicks compilation on !K7 which was quite possibly one of the most eagerly anticipated DJ-Kicks editions to be announced, yet never materialized.

However, it seems there may well be a third Burial album on the way. Kode9 has announced he will be playing a European exclusive preview of new Burial material at 10th edition of Italy and Turkey’sClub to Clubfestival. This event is reminiscent of 2007’s event which Kode9 previewed exclusive material from Burial’s unforgettable Untrue album. So, the rumors of a third Burial album may well be true and it may just appear at some point in 2011.

Burial is without a doubt one of the UK’s most prominent underground figures, his first two albums Burial and Untrue were arguably arguably two of the most important and groundbreaking albums to come out of the U.K. underground for some time. We waited with baited breath for his third effort, hopefully it wont disappoint. In the mean time, here is a reminder of genius of Burial.

Club to Club takes place from November 4 to 7 in Torino. Burial’s 3rd album will hopefully arrive some time in 2001.
