Alejandro Cohen w/guest Michael Cohen – Tradition & Transition: Voices of a New Israel, episode 1
Tradition and Transition is a six part radio program series exploring the voices of a new Israel. In each episode, your host, Alejandro Cohen and co-host Chris Kissel will explore the creative process, and the path of Israeli artists in discovering and finding their identity in a nation that is young yet holds ancient traditions as part of its heritage.
Episode one will feature Michael Cohen a Tel Aviv-based producer and rapper with deep Los Angeles connections. His brilliant solo debut was released this year by Stones Throw, and he spent some formative years making music here and connecting with the scene. But he’s also a well-spring of knowledge and perspective on Israeli culture. We took advantage of both, gathering Cohen’s perspective on the fascinating country from which he hails and digging into his own projects — the instrumental Cohenbeats project and his Hebrew rap duo, Cohen@Mushon.
Tune in daily starting December 14th through December 19 from 9am to 9.30am to catch each episode live on dublab.com or find it on demand in the dublab archives. where additional materials can be found.
Tradition and Transition is made possible by a grant from Asylum Arts, supporting contemporary Jewish culture on an international scale. Presented via Los Angeles radio station DUBLAB. Theme music by Cohenbeats, artwork by Pilpeled, sound editing by Bennett Shaeffer, and web programming by Brennan Mackay.

Jimmy Tamborello – Dying Songs
“Dying Songs” focuses on melancholic electronic music but isn’t limited to that. Sometimes it gets dark, sometimes I try to mix techno awkwardly, sometimes i get nostalgic… I like stuff that’s dreamy, ghostly, pretty and sad. I’ll try out new productions of my own, as well. I’m keeping it pretty open and we’ll see how it evolves.” – Jimmy Tamborello

Katie Gately – Roving Specks

Induce – Dancing, Thinking Loving, Listening
It all started with these words from Induce, “Bout to get on and play some weird stuff @dublab till about 4. Tune in!” Then the lightning split the sky and all the sounds from the dublab studio on this oblate spheroid called Planet Earth were pulled into the cosmos in a single beam of high lumen energy. From this newly elevated point they hit the universal prism of memory reflection and were split throughout the wide universe. We’re happy you got your radio attuned to Induce’s transmission. Whether you’re hearing this 2 billion years from now or simply right now we know you’ll enjoy the “weird stuff” being offered.
