Alejandro Cohen w/guest The Apples – Tradition & Transition: Voices of a New Israel, episode 4
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.
On episode four, we focus on the band The Apples. Starting in the year 2002 and continuing until now, The Apples have blazed a trail in Tel Aviv, mixing Israeli music samples with James Brown-style funk. We talked to one of the band’s leaders, Uri Wertheim — who also DJs and produces under the Mixmonster moniker — about the group’s origins, their unique place in the Tel Aviv scene, and about the necessity of connecting with his Israeli roots in finding his creative voice.
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.

Arshia Haq – Radio Discostan
Discostan presents musical narratives from Eastern Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, South and Southeast Asia and eastward to the edge of the earth – from Beirut to Bangkok via Bombay.
Narrative threads include migration, celebration, warfare, nostalgia, homeland, borders, often within realms of Islamic influence, through the lenses of timeless traditional forms, the kaleidoscopic reinventions of pop culture, and everything in between and beyond.
Most simply, Discostan is a love letter to the Dis-Orient.
Host Arshia Haq is a Los Angeles-based filmmaker, writer and listener with roots in East India by way of Yemen. Radio Discostan presents sounds from Belarus to Burma via Bombay derived from sources as wide as childhood cassettes to friends’ field recordings, with a mainstay of old and new vinyl treasures that delight and confound the ear.
