On this week’s edition of our Radio Sessions, Vienna-born producer John Tejada steps into the studio with host Mathias Weck.
They’ll be discussing the US-based Tejada’s new album The Predicting Machine, recently released on Kompakt, his personal label Palette Recordings, and his side project I Am Not A Gun, which features Tejada on drums and classical guitarist Takeshi Nishimoto. Not only that, but they’ll also be discussing something that most musicians are constantly wondering: is it still possible for an independent artist to make money? We can’t promise concrete answers, but the conversation will certainly be an interesting one.
You can listen to the whole radio show tomorrow on FluxFM, starting at 10pm (CEST). Tune in through terrestrial radio or, if you’re outside Germany, head to the stream.
Miss it? You can catch up with the first hour through FluxFM’s on demand feature from Friday, while the DJ mix will be up on EB a few days later.
Blue Fields, the trio of DJ Mike Shannon, the leftfield electronic artist behind Cynosure Recordings, plus Takeshi Nishimoto, the classical guitarist who collaborated with mini-tech artist John Tejada as I’m Not a Gun and vocalist Fadila, the German-Turkish singer who has previously appeared with Shannon on Wagon Repair and Cynosure – are set to release their first collaborative full length called ‘Ghost Story’. The trio recorded an uplifting ambient album that fuses the experimental spirit of jazz and the vibes of minimal electronica. The album will be the first full-length from Haunt Music, a Berlin-based label whose concise catalog includes past 12-inches from Shannon and fellow Canadian producer Akufen (as Horror Inc.). Below, you can now listen to the whole album in the latest episode of what we call EB-Listening:
