Genn Bo meets Direktorius - Toraja Mamasa

Genn Bo meets Direktorius – Toraja Mamasa

When hip hop aesthetics meet with punk spirit – strange and interesting things can happen. And they did, in the new EP by Genn Bo and Direktorius – Toraja Mamasa.
Coming from both worlds, artists brought their own experience to the table. With Genn Bo, the early participant of Lithuanian beatmaker battles, sample digger and a fan of electronics on the instrumental part and Direktorius, the frontman of a former punk-ska band Dr Green, experienced local hardcore scene activist on the vocals, the EP turned out to be dark and heavy, challenging modern day values.

Dubartis #22 by Souldatov

Esclavo Moderno
by Souldatov

Cumbia. In it, three cultures come together – the black African, indigenous and European. The origin of cumbia can be traced to the era of slavery. We live in the modern world and consider ourselves free, as if slavery ended long time ago and does not exist anymore. Most of the people do not admit the possibility of slavery being present to this day because of it’s disguise. Manipulation tools transformed, became more subtle, more scientific, but what did not change is that those tools are still being used…
This time Souldatov presents mad tropical selection to celebrate the launch of new weekly radio show Tropical Soundclash on LRT Opus. More »
"Африкатам" by Denez

Африкатам
by Deneez

For this episode we have a scene veteran, a long time record collector and one of the few vinyl only DJs that are left in Lithuania – Deneez. He has a fine taste in soul music and his studio mixes are rarities, just like some of the records in his collection. But this time Deneez has prepared something different. His mix is called “Африкатам”, which in russian means – AfricaThere. Indeed it’s there, far far away, almost unreachable. But hearing those rhythms, chants and spoken words brings it a bit closer. Happyness becomes simpler, sun seems to shine just a bit warmer and brighter, you feel this primal urge to move to the rhythms, to dance… See for yourself – one hour window to Africa, right there.

Sample Junkie
by Tafari

Edgaras Tafari, full-time jeweller and the host of the only radio show in Lithuania dedicated to reggae, Teigiamos Vibracijos on Start FM. Being the radio host one has a mission to educate. And Edgaras did just that by preparing an educational session. It would be quite obvious to expect a reggae mix from him, but not this time. This is the first mix by Tafari that isn’t reggae, but with his favourite sampled songs. A list of must-know material for the music heads. A set of golden tunes for everyone. More »
Dubartis #19 'Summer Explosion' by Lio

Summer Explosion
by Lio

It’s almost the middle of summer, vacation time and we have a mix for this occasion. Lio (or Aleksej Zinkov), a full-time motion designer and part-time music collector, has prepared a well matured selection, that is playfull like the sparkling wine bubbles. A blend of “good times” modern music from the past, American classics and heavy hitters from Russia, Poland and Sweden. As Lio says “This is a treat for friends and good people, a vacation for body and soul”. So put your deep thoughts aside (at least for a while) and dive into THAT summer vibe

Genn Bo – There Are No Miracles

One, two, three, four, here we go..

Nod, nod, nod, nod…

This is hide-and-seek.
This is a miracle on every corner.
This is the ice-cream melting on a hot sunny day, running through the fingers of a child while his mouth is wide open and his eyes awe at something that’s about to happen..
A miracle about to happen.. More »
