Monday, December 18 2017
09:00 AM - 10:00 AM


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 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.
