First broadcast date: 4 December 2018
Fortnightly show from Berlin, exploring the city’s vibrant music scene and nightlife, featuring exiled and original Berliners bringing live mixes and interviews.
For this episode, Alex is joined by Session Victim.
Since the success of their bedroom-produced debut LP took them a little by surprise back in 2012, the ‘two man house band’ have formalised their ad hoc studio jams and day-to-night sampling sessions into something resembling a schedule and blessed their Hamburg studio with a few more synths and studio tools. Yet besides that, refreshingly nothing much has changed about their friendship, spanning over twenty years and a regular Hamburg to Berlin exchange.
With a record collection covering several decades of hip hop, funk, disco and soul and the ever-present avalanche of vinyl-only house and techno cuts, it’s their passion for uncovering dusty vinyl treasures and the feeling that can be captured on a miniature moment in wax that inspires both their DJ sets and production environment.
In 2018 they launched their new vinyl only imprint Pen & Paper.
