Sexy Mother Fakir Mix - This Week's Free Lab Radio on @resonancefm

From Thessalonki, Greece come DISCOTECA INTERNACIONAL who are PALE PENGUIN and 246DESIGN. Although the playlist sounds like a load of musical buzz-genres repeated after a dozen other labels have made similar moves towards retrobilia, in fact Discoteca Internacional's choices are subtle and better blended than most. Old is Gold- then for the mixers it should be: Seasoned is Pleasing.
Such good sounds! Another thing in their favour it would seem is that the duo behind the name are older and more experienced. When it comes to selection, if the maxim for the content is

This Week's Free Lab Radio - Electro Posé.

Tonight! The French 'music diffuser', normally 'broadcasting' online since 2013, has had their station go offline this month. The beauty of on demand though means the mixes are online for years afterwards.

Tonight one hour of "Deep, Deep/House, Tech/House, Chill, Minimal. Pop/electro" from France mixed by Electro Posé. His mixes are characterised by a love of fuzzing up the sound only to make it clear again once your mind has wandered. These mixes are made for internet listening, while we type, on computer speakers.
>Check out his mixes here.

This Week's #FreeLabRadio - Jellica Chip Tunes

An hour of dancey wobble tracks made using cold computers and consoles by Jellica, with that demo-scene style that defines this kind of chip-tune music. A peer of artist Chris Weaver's since the mid 90s, Jellica joined a C64 demo group and started making C64 music that can only be played back on modified hardware that he doesn’t even own. Such scene. Picture Raquel Meyers - made using an old Commodore64.

This week's Free Lab celebrates songs worth learning the lyrics too, if you don't know them already. From great lyrics by the masters, to tunes many of us had on cassette as kids.

This Week's #FreeLabRadio - Guest DJ Nuff Ced

This Saturday night, an exclusive mix by Cedric 'Nuff Ced' of Dubai DJ crew 'Deep Crates Cartel' - crate-diggers from all around the world who dedicate themselves to an alternative music scene in Dubai. 11- midnight GMT across London on 104.4FM or via the RadioPlayer.

MEANWHILE DON'T FORGET it's the RESONANCEFM AUCTION still... artworks, experiences and collectables all up for grabs at ridiculously low prices, and for a great cause - arts-music station Resonance104.4FM broadcasts on air due to a huge amount of fundraising, and all programme makers are volunteers.  "Nuff Ced" a Parisian record collector and selector with Dubai DJ crew Deep Crates Cartel. Deep Crates gather crate-diggers from the world over as far afield as Lebanon, Spain, UK, Poland, Egypt and so on, who share the same mindset and quest for rare groove. DCC dedicated themselves to provide what they felt was missing in Dubai, an alternative to the mainstream & commercial music scene. 

"We clearly have a common vibe, yet with each his own specialities, one is a wicked reggae selector, another a highly-skilled turntablist... I'm into soul jazz funk, with a soft spot for Brazilian music and have been accumulating records and musical knowledge for more than 20 years now. A true consuming passion that I'm always glad to share.
So, at your request, I put together a little musical journey crossing borders and pushing boundaries.
You'll hear some Turkish, Indian, Ethiopian, Lebanese, Indonesian, Swedish stuff and a few 60s-70s american soul and jazz avant-garde."
