In our first show of 2016, we’ll be joined by the ever fabulous Aku Kadogo. Aku will be presenting another bunch of fabulous tracks and doing what she does beautifully – filling your radio dial and ears up with audio smiles and endless possibilities.
Rona Geffen – RG Music our Curvy crewster in Berlin presents a very special feature on a recent project initiated by female:pressure who have launched an awareness and solidarity campaign for the women of #Rojava (northern Syria). Rona will be playing one of her tracks she has contributed to the project along with other female electronic artists Sky Deep (Berlin), French_concession 法國租界 (New Zealand) & Auja (Scotland) who have also submitted work to this initiative in sending love and strength to the women of #Rojava and spreading a positive message in support of their efforts.
Our gorgeous Clarisse French Curves in France is back again with new French work from the INTERPHASE collective, Airworld with their tribute to#DavidBowie and a stunning track from the divine Josephine Baker. Speaking of stunning, mr.K is also back and in his Curved Radio social media followers spot he’ll be presenting work from composer Fletcher Beasley (USA), the cheeky stylings of Rebecca Closure (UK) and brand new sounds from Australian electronic innovators and legends, Scattered Order (Oz).
Phew! At the controls of Curvy Central holding all this fabulousness together is the wonderful Gayle Austin who a little bird told me is just itching for you all to join her in the dance across the curvy portal and out into the known universe!
Are you ready, Curvies …. because here we go … yes, we’re going off into 2016 and into the hive mind!
