Luca & Mata Hari and Eindkrak
For SSFB radio #17 our guest Eindkrak started off with some poetry in the second hour while hosts Luca & Mata Hari took care of the first hour.
White clothing, green lasers, 3D figures, aliens and metallic man bags – Joeri Woudstra has a soft spot for all things trance. You may know him better as Torus the visual artist and musician from The Hague. Back in June last year, Woudstra got to play out his trance fantasies as Torus at his Green Laser Radio show for Red Light Radio, lighting up the tiny studio in a stunning display of beaming green rays that was as much a visual as a sonic experience.
Every month, George Hysteric takes time away from running the “strange music from beyond” Facebook group to create a playlist for SSFB from the group’s extensive music library. Here are his picks for January 2017, with music from Les Yeux Interdits, Swing Slow, Palmbomen II and more.
Heartbreak. It happens to the best of us. While the festive season brings with it ubiquitous feelings of warmth and joy, these are not sentiments shared by all. Be it memories of a lost kin, friend or lover, some of us share rather a common wound to the heart. For the lovesick and forlorn among us, SSFB founder Quintin van der Spek offers seven unconventional Christmas carols to help sweeten the bitter nights ahead.
The holiday season is upon us. For many of us that translates into a lot of spare time on our hands. Never a better time to dust the collection off and take it for a spin. In the spirit of New Year and new discoveries, here’s a list highlighting the wide range of sounds covered in 2016’s reissues. Quirky post-punk fun, drones that dive into the abyss, ethereal musical shrines and more – you’re sure to find something worthy of an addition to your collection.
In everyday life Shane Burmania has the grateful task as event programmer for The Rest is Noise, a concert series for the weird and wonderful in the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ. He also curates programs in contemporary music for the Korzo Theatre in The Hague. Shane has a soft spot for any music with hints of cosmic, futuristic and transcendental sounds. Here’s five to start us off. Enjoy.
The days are getting shorter. More reason to get your sensory pleasure centers working on overdrive. For your extended listening pleasure Lounes Doulache – (music) lover, DJ and SSFB’s editor-in-chief – gears us up with his winter favorites and some added afterthoughts. Get ready to wade into just about 10 hours of lingering ethereal goodness.
