With Original Cultures’ 2011 show, The Formula, under way as of yesterday we’re dropping a little promo podcast as part of our Original Cultures Radio series in anticipation of the final showcase that goes down Saturday June 25 in Bologna.
Inspired by some of the themes and sounds behind The Formula, namely the written word which is being used as the basis for the show and the dub elements of both the music and the musical formation, this short promo mix blends together tracks from some of the artists taking part this year – Architeq, Bkun and Hed – alongside classics from Rhythm & Sound, Kode 9 and Spaceape, new tracks from LV and Josh Idehen, Om Unit and Lorn and Australia’s finest Dizz1 on a stepping tip.
You can download and/or stream the mix below.
Alongside this you can also check a recording (Real Audio format) from the Battiti radio show on the Italian radio station Rai Tre, broadcast last Friday and which features Original Cultures’ The Formula with some words explaining the project.
Full details of the live shows can be found here and be sure to check the website and Facebook all week for live updates, photos, videos and more as we get ready to take the Arena Orfeonica in Bologna on Saturday.
