In the Booth with Sunara

The Oslo World Music festival at Jæger was diverse colourful diorama of music and characters dancing in and out of our basement and lounge, an obscure din that struggles to pull into a focus a few weeks on, except for a singular focal point at its core. It’s an image of the Sri Lankan DJ […]

JM#023 – Celius

That last bastion of a Friday night at Jæger; the solid shoulders on which every weekend begins; and one Oslo’s most enigmatic DJ figures, Petter Celius is our guest for this week’s Jæger mix. By his own account a warm-up DJ, Celius has that most difficult task of setting the wheels of a party in motion, each […]

Album of the Week: Íxtahuele – Call of the Islands

Íxtahuele are a Swedish “exotica” group that call on 1950’s jazz-library sound palette of the likes of Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman, transporting listeners to exotic locations from some forgotten past, through a very detailed research approach to this music. Their sophomore album, “Call of the Islands” builds on the tiki motif the group have established from their most unlikely […]

Listen Back to William Djoko

William Djoko’s enigmatic and esoteric personality lives on through this mix recorded in our basement for the Oslo World Music Festival. Occupying all those grey areas on the dance floor between House and Techno, Djoko’s set is broad and extensive moving through hollow tribal percussion, UK bass rhythms and esoteric vocals throughout the hour-long musical adventure. The Dutch producer’s African […]

Fierce for the Night with Virginia

When Virginia released her debut album earlier this year via Ostgut Ton, the world got its first taste of what an Ostgut Ton Supergroup would sound like. Featuring Steffi, Martyn, and Dexter on production credits and Virginia’s vocals the glue holding it all together, “Fierce for the Night” marked a seminal work within the Ostgut […]

Prins Thomas picks: Jamal Moss / Hieroglyphic Being

The Hieroglyphic Being spaceship, piloted by Jamal Moss will soon descend onto Oslo and Jæger for a live show in our basement alongside Øyvind Morken and Prins Thomas as representatives for Rett i Fletta. Jamal Moss’ career is the thing of urban legends. Literally raised on the streets of Chicago, where he would spend the nights […]

Øyvind Morken picks: Mathematics

The Hieroglyphic Being spaceship, piloted by Jamal Moss will soon descend onto Oslo and Jæger for a live show in our basement alongside Øyvind Morken and Prins Thomas as representatives for Rett i Fletta. Jamal Moss’ career is the thing of urban legends. Literally raised on the streets of Chicago, where he would spend the nights […]

JM#022 – A:G

Sunkissed mainstay A:G loiters in the minimal sonic landscape of Micro House for his edition of the Æ mix. Swimming in atmospheres where bio-mechanical electronics chirps intersect sullen icy pads, A:G’s mix oozes through the speakers, a ghostly auditory presence in the machine. There’s viscosity to the mix like an tenuous veil being pulled over the listener’s ears, and […]

In the Booth with Ison

Anastasios Diolatzis is one of the heads behind Greece’s longest running electronic music festival, Reworks.,a formidable selector and a producer you might have heard of before as Ison or one half of Actor One. As a producer Diolatzis has enjoyed marginal success on labels like Gigolo and Noir while his skill as a DJ is beyond […]

Mutual Intentions playlist

The Mutual Intentions crew have compiled a Spotify playlist to get us all in the mood for their basement takeover next week. They’ll be going head to head with MC Kaman and Nightflight, offering adding a soulful dimension to Nightflight’s repertoire. They’ve given us a little taste of what we can expect from Fredfades, Dirty Hans, Moe Chakiri, […]

Album of the Week: Roman Flügel – All the Right Noises

Roman Flügel does make all the right noises here on his latest album for the Lawrence & co, Dial imprint. His third studio album for the German  label, Roman Flügel has definitely found a rhythm at Dial that allows the freedom to develop and and experiment in his sonic aesthetic. Flügel’s percussive-based minimalist textures, featuring soft […]

Unequivocally Pearson Sound

Back in 2006/7, or perhaps even earlier, there was a low rumble bubbling up from London’s its subterranean levels. Nights like FWD>> at Plastic People were popular haunts for a new clubbing social circle, one that would congregate around dubstep and bass music, but would disregard most denominators for something more fluid, streaking towards a […]
