Mouse on Mars – guest session
Mouse on Mars – Dimensional People info:
Mouse on Mars, the Berlin-based duo of Andi Toma and Jan St. Werner, will release their new album, Dimensional People, on April 13th. Originally premiering as a spatial composition using object-based mixing technology that plays with possibilities of sonic design and collective musicianship, Dimensional People expands upon these ideas. The album makes clear how Mouse on Mars’ craft is of discovering new contexts for places, sounds, memories, sensations, ambiences, technologies, relationships, and of course, people. It features collaborations with Justin Vernon, Aaron and Bryce Dessner (The National), Zach Condon, Spank Rock, Swamp Dogg, Eric D. Clark, Lisa Hannigan, Amanda Blank, Sam Amidon, Ensemble Musikfabrik, and more. Each participating guest was given a platform to imprint the album as whoever or whatever they wanted to be: a narrator, a perfect moment, a jam, an ensemble member, an abstract sound, a multiple persona, a mood, a soloist.

He is also a composer of music for TV shows, documentaries and educational materials. Ale works at dublab as part of the full time office team along with frosty and Lavenders.
This program will feature special guest Dymph performing live.
Here is a statement from her:
“Hi im Dymph from the Netherlands! Last couple years I felt a bit lost in this world and did not know how to make me feel most alive. I realized that music always brings me into certain emotions; black, white and all in between. It brings me back in memories, but also in future dreamings. It is something that smells and sounds do with me. I used to play drums when I was younger so I got into making beats and singing vocals on it as I love to use my voice and put out certain feelings in words. People ask me my genre and I don’t really know where it fits in, but I guess its something in the electronic indie pop atmospheres or just a new kinda genre I would call the void? It feels amazing to finally find my way to put out my emotions and life experiences I have been through in music! Hope I can take you on a journey with me :)”

Danny Holloway – Heads Up
I spin at clubs, lounges, parties + on radio. From ’97 to ’05, I spent up to twelve hours a day pursuing obscure funk music, traveling to Brasil, Jamaica, Nigeria, Ghana, France, the UK, Mexico and Canada digging for records. I’m from the LBC, but professionally began in London in the ’70s: first as a staff writer on the NME music weekly, followed by a few years at Island Records. I worked with BOB MARLEY, BURNING SPEAR, TOOTS & THE MAYTALS, JIMMY CLIFF and produced the HEPTONES album “Night Food.” I moved back to L.A. after five years in London and went back with Island, eventually lasting 23 years. I produced THE PLIMSOULS, signed SUBLIME, put together 22 soundtrack albums, etc. I recently returned to music journalism and I’m the music supervisor on a Marley feature film, doing consulting work for iTunes and still producing music. I’m also still digging and share the wax by spinning out or creating mixes for DUBLAB.COM.

A year later, he teamed up with DJ Dina Juntila to create DR. WHO, a night exploding with obscure and psychedelic 60s world music.
Punky Reggae Party features musical selections from the Punk & Post-Punk period between 1977 – 1982 (although the show also features other era’s, sub-genres & Pre-Punk influences), as well as Jamaican music from the Ska, Rock Steady & Roots Reggae era’s, respectively.
