JM#033 – Hans Hug

Appearing out of the foggy textures of trumpet, electronics, and an evocative German female vocal enchantment, arrives Hans Hug’s contribution to the Æmix series with some provocative allure. It sucks you into a mix where soft harmonic atmospheres play amongst amongst lethargic percussive evocations, calling on elements of Jazz, Afro and abstract electronica.  Hans Hug is no […]

Omnipresent: The music of Tokyo

The moment your feet touch solid ground at Narita Airport in Tokyo Japan, a wave of calm and serenity envelopes you on the sonic plain. There’s a quiet, light hum from people scurrying to their final- or next destination, but filling the noticeable void where noise usually resides in western transport hubs, a synthetic glass harmonium […]

Album of the Week: BCUC – Our Truth

The sounds of Johannesburg, are rich with the vibrance of a city largely made up of a heterogeneous diaspora.

A Helena Hauff Thing

Helena Hauff’s music and the music she plays in her sets exudes a kind of beautiful raw savagery that speaks to something primal, a unique instinctive music that can’t be curtailed into generic boxes and relays an obscure feeling that can’t be described in any literal language.  Helena Hauff instills something uninhibited in her sets […]

Listen back to Waze & Odyssey in our booth

Waze & Odyssey were electric on the night they had in our basement in December, absolutely thriving off the energy at Jæger with a mix that reciprocated in kind.
